As with all of RJ Scott’s stories, I simply fell in love with this one right away. The easy banter between Adam and his work colleagues, the way Adam and Logan made a connection but try to fight it. All the guessing and second guessing about who the stalker is and then seeing the vulnerability of not just Logan but of Adam as well, made for a great lazy afternoon read in the pool. I especially loved the double twist at the end. I thought it was great how Logan was surrounded by friends not just work colleagues and when was time to make some life changing decisions those friends stood by him. I even felt the HEA was good, both characters having lives ‘across the pond’ and giving us an epilogue that explains how they are working that out was a great touch. The reason it’s not a five – The only other series, work’s I’ve read by this author is her Texas one and it always amazed me how during that one she never slipped up and used an English word or phrase. It’s the opposite in this one, I expected her to fall back on her up brining and felt the missing English undercurrent lacking throughout the story.

This is book two in the Bodyguards Inc series but you do not need to read in order.

This one is about BI, employee Ben and his charge Daniel, an up and coming singer that Ben meets while working for a TV show in which Daniel placed third. During the first meet, Ben realizes that Daniel is in trouble but Daniel refuses help, the show ends but he doesn’t forget about the beautiful but damaged singer. Daniel realizes he’s in over he’s head and reaches out hoping against hope that the bodyguard will remember him because Daniel certainly remembered him.   Unlike the first one I couldn’t get the personal connection between the two MC’s, not sure why? I liked how Ben was protective of Daniel, understanding Daniel and what’s he’s been through. How Ben even could relate to it on a personal level.
But I couldn’t connect with Daniel, all the inner dialog, belittling himself, even after he got out of the relationship.  All the people around him loving him, coming from such a loving family, I get we can’t explain how the children turn out but none if it fit for me. Then to jump into another relationship, without therapy or some sort of help, I like my characters to be a little less co-dependent a little more in charge even if they are playing the victim. However, just like the first BI book, I really enjoyed that we got an Epilogue that gave months down the road, in which we got the verdict to Cam’s case and the fact that Daniel is getting the help he needs as well as other details.

This is the third book in the Bodyguard INC series and can be read as stand alone.

This one is about Max, who we’ve not heard about before but has been working for BI for a couple of years after an accident forced an early retirement from the RAF. He has been placed in charge of a Prince of a small mainland European country for a couple of reason, one being both he and the Prince are openly gay. And one of the BI covers is they can play boyfriends and with Luke still in college, Max looking younger than his late twenties that helps as well. As Luke, Max and the BI team try to figure out whose stalking Luke. Max and Luke start playing the boyfriend card for real. I liked Max and Luke together, Luke understands he needs to be careful but won’t give up life, love or values for anyone. And Max wants to protect Luke with everything he has because it’s his job and all too quickly he’s become his whole life. The guessing of the who-done-it with this one was intriguing and a little sad to realize that Luke had basically shut himself away and just surrounded himself with associates and staff. No friends. After the incidents that brought him to Wales in the first place. And just like the last two we are given a wonderful Epilogue to wrap up a perfect HEA.
