BOOK REVIEW- Bodyguard Flora Ferrari *
When I win the contract to protect an unknown VIP, I’m expecting a quick pile of cash for what amounts to making sure some pampered celebrity doesn’t get sunburnt or eat too much lobster during one of their multi-million dollar weekends of excess.
Then she shows up.
Nobody told me it was going to be the President’s daughter…the secret one he doesn’t want anyone to know about.
And nobody told him I’m the one in charge of protecting her. Remember me, Mister President? I’m the guy you personally kicked off your Secret Service security detail for an infraction that I didn’t commit.
If I decline the job now I’ll never be able to work again.
But if I agree, I have to protect her...the girl who fell hard for me four years ago. I thought of her as a bratty little sister back then. She thought of me as her personal protector who she could cuddle up to whenever she wanted...no matter how inappropriate.
But she’s not an eighteen-year-old kid anymore. She’s twenty-two now, and she’s grown up in more ways than one. I’m only supposed to keep an eye on her, but I can’t stop staring. She’s beyond beautiful and this bodyguard’s got it bad for her.
I’m supposed to be protecting her, but who’s going to protect me...from myself?
And when the bad guys do come a-knockin’, I have to make the biggest choice of all. Do I follow my sworn oath to the country and protect the President of the United States, or the daughter he doesn’t even want…but I do more than anything else in the world?
I’m dangerously close to losing my job, my reputation, and even my life. But a life without her is no life at all. I’ll lay it all on the line to show the woman of my dreams that I’m a man who knows what he wants and that’s only one thing…her. ?? AMAZON LINK 3 STARS
*Bodyguard is an insta-everything standalone romance with an HEA, no cheating, and no cliffhanger.
The first few chapters are eye-opening especially when it comes to their mutual attraction. If you are looking for it to be tame? Nope, it's not going to be that. At there is some language that is adult too.
I liked that there was both point of views included. In fact, it switched back and forth between them. And really liked how it was done. One of the things that I really dislike is when that is done but in a way like it's a rehearsal of what I just read from the other person. The only thing that is added is the current persons thoughts about it. I'm so glad that this book DIDN'T do it that way.
The only thing is that for me, the book was ''just okay''. I was disappointed by a lack of depth to it. I hate to even say it but..it had potential but didn't quite reach all of it.
There is a twist when it comes to identifying who the villain is. But even the motive felt light as well. Reasonable but with not all that much depth. Another area that could have used more depth as well.
There is a H.E.A. and a sweet Epilogue.
