Life is pain. That is the reality Goodie has had to accept since she was nine years old. Even before the night her childhood shattered she was never normal: her mind can process people and situations at lightning speed, she has the ability to recall anything she sees or hears with perfect clarity, she can separate from herself if she needs to – making her difficult to torture, difficult to intimidate. In summary, she is the perfect mercenary. A life in the shadows where she can stay in darkness is fine by her. That is until he tries to pull her into the light. Powerful, arrogant, filthy-rich men are, quite frankly, a pain in Goodie’s arse. She’d much rather take an extraction job in the depths of a Colombian jungle than have to deal with their bullshit. But sometimes the money is just too good to turn down, and this time someone important, who is actually doing something Goodie believes in, needs to be kept safe. Luckily, Goodie is an expert at maintaining an invisible presence, enabling her to keep any interaction with the egomaniacs she protects to a minimum … until she meets Nick Chambers. Nick doesn’t seem to understand invisible presence, appropriate employer–employee protocol, security precautions, following instructions, or in fact just leaving her the fuck alone. Everything about him, from his ability to laugh at their situation to the perpetual smile on his gorgeous face complete with goddamn dimple, drives Goodie insane, and for some reason makes her feel threatened. Fear is weakness, and if Goodie’s life has taught her anything it’s that you never, ever show weakness. But Nick is determined, and he’s used to getting what he wants. He’s been effortlessly charming the women in his life since he was five years old, so he knows it won’t be long before he has Goodie right where he wants her. Only some things are so dark, so horrific, they can’t be dragged into the light. Some people are beyond redemption, and Goodnight may be one of them.

Goodnight is an awesome tale. I first met the enigmatic and mysterious Goodie in the Broken Hearts Series also written by Susie Tate. I had high hopes for Goodie's story and I was not disappointed. Goodie is a very special security agent who prefers to work alone. She is unusually loyal and particularly talented in all areas of protective services. Basically she could kick your butt anywhere she chose or creatively kill you. Goodie had horrific things happen in her life. life She made a deal with the devil to ensure her sister is safe but the cost to herself made her become almost robotic with her emotions. It takes protecting Nick with her small expert team to crack Goodie's shell. As Goodie and Nick become more involved, Nick knows he must tread very carefully with Goodie. He gets rare glimpses of the caring, loving person she hides so well. When Goodie makes a tiny error, storage shuts off from everyone and pays a terrible price. Can Nick, his family and the other team members save Goodie from her own personal he'll and from herself?
Read it and see. see You won't regret it.
Goodie is a very complex character but she is an amazing one. You get to unravel her history and gain the reasons for why she acts and reacts as she does. I have really enjoyed all four of the books I have read by this author and would thoroughly recommend this book. Reviewed for WTMO.
Susie Tate is a general practitioner and when she's not working she's looking after her four yummy boys under six (okay one is actually over thirty-six but it's the mental age that counts!). This is the first of her books to be set totally outside the medical world and is a little darker than the others, but hopefully still funny at times.
