Blurb: Bodyguard Adam Freeman draws what everyone else thinks is the short straw at the convention for a procedural cop show, as bodyguard to TV actor Logan Brady. Or as the Internet has labeled him, Logan ‘Sex God’ Brady.
Logan is taking part in a convention at a London Hotel for his show ‘Night Cop’ and someone is threatening his life.
Adam gets more than he bargained for when his client combines coming out of the closet with them both trying to stay alive.
Review: Adam gets stuck with being the bodyguard to a ‘pretty boy’, otherwise known as actor Logan Brady. Logan has received threats and was involved in a near miss ‘hit and run’. It’s Adam’s responsibility to ensure Logan’s safety on U.K. soil, but Adam has to fight his attraction for the closeted TV star. Logan is freaked out by the threats and on top of his own personal confusion; he has a lot of decisions to make that don’t just impact him, but his close friends as well. Everything comes to a head in the U.K. and he can’t fight his attraction to Adam, but his stalker is still lurking around and their personal relationship may just interfere with their professional one.
This is a great story that makes you keep turning the pages as twists and turns emerges and heartfelt confessions are made. Adam hates ‘pretty boy’ duty as nearly every ‘pretty boy’ he has been assigned to has turned out to be a spoiled brat, but with this new assignment, he discovers that the man he’s guarding has hidden secrets and he has to fight his attraction for him. Logan has hidden in the shadows and behind his ‘girlfriend’ for fourteen years. He’s sick of hiding who he really is, but fears he will no longer get the acting parts. Having a stalker adds to his problems, but Adam turns out to be a really good thing. Adam is hot and having a fling with him may not be a great idea. But when they cross the boundaries, both of them find it hard to let Adam do his job.
I loved this story for its storyline, characters, and smooth flowing plot. R.J. Scott brings the characters to life, giving you insight into not only both main characters, but also into some of the supporting characters, like Stacia and Robert. She even gives the stalker a spine tingling personality! Adam and Logan have a wonderful connection and their attraction is tempered with the realities of their situation. They are a hot couple and they do take time before consummating their relationship (mainly because of circumstances), but there are enough scenes between Adam and Logan to whet your appetite.
I have to recommend this novel to those of you who love falling for the bodyguard or falling for the TV star. This is a great storyline fill with hot sex, psycho stalkers, wonderful characters and a very happy and wonderful ending.
