Rating: 5 out of 5.
What does it say about an author who uses the ‘done to death plotline’ into something so soul-touching and heart warming that all I wanna do is to consider the book as a teddy bear and sleep with hugged tight!
Adorable and freakishly charming, The Bodyguard was an absolute delight to sink myself into after a hard day. The rom-com is complete with a fake girlfriend and a forced proximity plot with a hilarious ex-boyfriend that gets kicked in the balls and roasted to hell. Hannah Brooks the bodyguard or glamorously referred to as the Executive protection agent is given a new task to protect movie star, Jack Stapleton. Hannah and Jack both had my heart, they are both scarred in many ways and the situation of the fake dating for the happiness of the cancer-stricken mother was used to the maximum potential by the author. And hats off to her, cracking us up with a scene that included even cows.
The romance is feel good and the chemistry between Hannah and Jack was just off the charts. In fact, there was nothing not to love in this latest release by Katherine Center and honestly, she is my favorite go-to author for some stress-buster relief.
For all those who love to read at least one book, go ahead and pick this one up, not for the swoon-worthy hero or the kick-ass heroine or their antics, but for the sheer joy of laughing out loud for the predicament of the ex and for the humor that reigns supreme in this story.
She’s got his back.
Hannah Brooks looks more like a kindergarten teacher than somebody who could kill you with a wine bottle opener. Or a ballpoint pen. Or a dinner napkin. But the truth is, she’s an Executive Protection Agent (aka “bodyguard”), and she just got hired to protect superstar actor Jack Stapleton from his middle-aged, corgi-breeding stalker.
He’s got her heart.
Jack Stapleton’s a household name-captured by paparazzi on beaches the world over, famous for, among other things, rising out of the waves in all manner of clingy board shorts and glistening like a Roman deity. But a few years back, in the wake of a family tragedy, he dropped from the public eye and went off the grid.
They’ve got a secret.
When Jack’s mom gets sick, he comes home to the family’s Texas ranch to help out. Only one catch: He doesn’t want his family to know about his stalker. Or the bodyguard thing. And so Hannah-against her will and her better judgment-finds herself pretending to be Jack’s girlfriend as a cover. Even though her ex, like a jerk, says no one will believe it.
What could possibly go wrong???
Hannah hardly believes it, herself. But the more time she spends with Jack, the more real it all starts to seem. And there lies the heartbreak. Because it’s easy for Hannah to protect Jack. But protecting her own, long-neglected heart? That’s the hardest thing she’s ever done.
