Blurb:

From the time I was a kid, I knew I wanted a job helping people. After serving in the Rifles regiment of the British Army, I focused my civilian career on becoming a bodyguard to the rich and famous. For a Cockney Brit, I never imagined a twist of fate landing me a position in the United States Secret Service and protecting the President’s son. But then my boss made an unexpected request: leave my current placement to move in with his only daughter to give an added layer of protection against the threats she had been receiving. I’d never lived with a woman who was off-limits to me. It wasn’t just that Caroline had a boyfriend. She was my best friend’s sister, and my boss’s daughter. But the longer we’re in such close quarters together, the greater the temptation grows, but I know I’ll lose everything if I pursue her.

Growing up as the only girl and with two overbearing older brothers, I’m no stranger to being overprotected. Just as I finished up college and prepared to truly dip my toes into the adult world, my father was elected President of the United States, which added a whole new level of protection with the Secret Service team attached to me. Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly be more smothered, I began receiving threats, and my family decided it wasn’t enough to just have an agent living down the hall from me. Nope, I was to have one move in with me, and not just any agent, but Ty Frasier—my brother, Barrett’s best friend, and my brother, Ty’s, head agent. While most women would enjoy living with a sexy, buff Brit, having a roommate threw a wrench into all my plans. Especially when I began noticing Ty was so much more than a hot guy.

Untitled - Copy

A romance between a bodyguard and his Boss’s daughter in the kind of forbidden romance I absolutely love. The book reminded me of a television series called ‘The Royals’, also based in England.

Caroline- an impulsive girl, who is trying really hard to adjust her life between her President’s daughter and a creepy stalker who means her harm. Enter Ty- an agent with the United States Secret Service, also known as Caroline’s personal bodyguard and roommate.

Their journey starts with friendly banters and progresses to sometimes serious and intense. I love how very little time was wasted describing their physical appearance, and a lot of importance was given to the instant connection, and attraction between them. The writing sounds a bit repetitive at places, but that can be ignored.

The story is intense and ‘steamy hot’ right from the start and I spent reading most of it curled up in a blanket with hot cocoa and popcorn. Totally recommend it to forbidden romance lovers.

  1. YOU HAD ME AT BODYGUARD!
    Oh my gosh, I have such a WEAKNESS for the bodyguard troupe. I’ll have to check this one out… I’ve only heard of the first book from a friend who didn’t like it, but hopefully this one will be better!
