SHE NEEDS A LOVER AND A FIGHTER
Blonde. Beautiful. Talented. Alexa Fairfax is practically Hollywood royalty. But growing up in a family of legendary movie stars also puts her in the spotlight for danger. And after she discovers a plot more deadly than any movie script, Alexa desperately needs a bodyguard. A man like Zack De Luca. A true friend with a good heart, a protective nature—and the hard, chiseled muscles to back it up.
Zack has always been wildly attracted to Alexa. But since he’s training day and night to be an MMA fighter, he’s afraid his gorgeous friend will only distract him from his goal. Indescribably sweet and irresistibly sexy, Alexa needs Zack to pretend to be her boyfriend after her life is threatened. Now this fighter-in-training will have to fight his own intense feelings—to keep their little charade from turning into a major disaster . . .
Give me a good romantic suspense and I could sit and read all day! I have particularly loved this Bodyguard Series by the author and Chain Reaction did not disappoint me. A fighter meets Hollywood royalty and has to protect her from harm. Sounds cliché, right? But, this combination works perfectly in this story and created enough of a wall for the couple to antagonize each other while still being intensely attracted to one another.
Zack is sexy personified with the same amount of charm to go along with it. Alexa is beautiful and elegant, but grew up in the spotlight and always had to play the part. He helps her against her family and to escape the limelight and life she always hated. Their banter and antics added in with the action and suspense kept me entertained. Did I want to binge read this story? No. But, I didn’t want to put it aside and forget about it, either. My only issue with the story was Zack’s overly sweet charm. Sometimes, it was a little too much for me. That’s the only thing I did not like.
I found this to be a good story with plenty of suspense and romance added to entertain me. Another good addition to this series!
