So if Steve has to play the game, he's going to make damn sure he's in charge of the rules. But April's determined to stay focused and professional—even if Steve Nolan isn't just another rich jerk.

When a sexy CEO needs protection…only the best will do.

CEO Steve Nolan is wealthy, successful, and in danger. Now, thanks to his business partner, he has a bodyguard—a rigid, controlled woman with a smoky voice that invites steamy thoughts of rumpled sheets and oh-so-satisfying sleepless nights. So if Steve has to play the game, he’s going to make damn sure he’s in charge of the rules…just as long as no one finds out.

April Porter has met incredibly handsome, high-powered men before. Guys just as smooth, who didn’t take her seriously, and who broke her heart. So she’s just here to do her job and stay focused and professional.

Even if Steve Nolan isn’t just another rich jerk.

Even if the sexual spark between them keeps getting hotter.

And even if protecting his business and his ass(ets) means April could lose her heart in the bargain…

When wealthy CEO Steve Nolan’s business partner finds out Steve has been sent threatening letters, much to Steve’s chagrin he insists he has a bodyguard. Imagine the CEO’s reaction when the bodyguard is a feisty, determined female . . . . life’s getting interesting!

I love a great story that offers a twist from the norm. This book offers one in that instead of the hunky guy being the protector, it is the woman. Add in a bit of suspense and intrigue and this author brings a solid read that is captivating and entertaining too!

This book did not start so well, I never thought I'd give it a five stars when I started reading. But after a few chapters the story picked up, it turned very interesting and I got engrossed in reading. Characters started to sound more and more intriguing and there was a sense of mystery which kept ...more

What a nice change. We have April who is a body guard for the rich and sexy Steve Nolan. For him it's hard to look at April and not try to seduce her. For her, he is just another rich jerk and she has enough on her plate to handle as it is.

But as the story progresses so does an attraction between th ...more

Loved this one! Steve and April are great characters and the chemistry between them is very believable. What starts out as a simple job for April quickly turns into much more.

This was entertaining. It had the right amount of sass, banter, insecurities from characters, intimacy and danger.

Steve is the guy that we would all like to protect. He is smart, gorgeous and not at all what he portrays to the world. Privately he is a kind sweet guy publicly he is portrayed as a pla ...more

I enjoyed this bodyguard romance with a twist, since it's the woman that's the bodyguard in this one! April was a strong and convincing character (and she gets some action scenes to prove her mettle) with enough vulnerability to make her a more complex character. Steve comes across as a dedicated fa ...more
