Federal Security Protection agent, Judd Wolfe doesn’t play by the rules. His out-of-the-box way of getting things done lands him a babysitting job. But being Senator Beckett’s bodyguard while staying out of his bed becomes his biggest challenge as passion ignites between the men.
If you're in the mood for some m/m romance without a lot of time to devote to reading a story, this is a great choice. This is a quick read, but I enjoyed it. These two guys have a history from when they are both in the Air Force. As a result, the romance moves pretty quickly in this one. But it worked for me.
Judd is a protective agent. Beau is a senator who has a stalker after him. Beau is also the father of a 4 yo who owns his heart. When she's threatened, things get real and he's ready to take action...with Judd's help. This book moves fast...through both the romance, relationship development, and the bit of suspense, so be ready for that.
Overall, it was simply a good, quick jolt of romance. And honestly, yes, it could have been great. The bones were there for an amazing A+ story, but since it's shorter, those things weren't developed as much as they could have. I was left with a few lingering questions. Instead, I use my imagination a bit to fill in the missing parts. But it remains a flat-out fun and sexy read to escape into for less than a couple of hours.
