Protecting her was never going to be easy.
After sixteen years as the personal bodyguard to the world’s biggest rock star, ex-SAS commando Aslin Rhodes excels in the role of intimidating protector, oozing threatening menace. Now that the singer has retired, Aslin takes a new assignment as a military consultant on a blockbuster film. But just as he’s getting comfortable in the world of Hollyweird, he faces an unexpectedly immovable object. An American martial arts expert no taller than his chin, who promptly puts him on his arse.
Rowan Hemsworth’s focus is two-fold—keep her famous brother grounded, and never again be a defenseless victim. She has her hands full as the fun police, keeping her brother’s money-sucking entourage at bay. But nothing prepared her for the British mountain of muscle who makes her knees go uncharacteristically weak.
When a string of accidents on set convinces Aslin that Rowan—not her brother—is the target, things get bloody tricky as he tries to convince the stubborn woman she needs his protection. And accept that she belongs with him. In his arms, in his bed…and in his heart.
Warning: The strong, silent type don’t come much more silent and strong than Aslin Rhodes. But when he does speak his British accent will drive you mad with desire. As will his menacing, dominating power. And what he can do to a woman on the back of a motorcycle.
This was a fun and sexy read and I loved everything about it! I received this book as an ARC for review and I hadn't yet read the first book in the series so I wasn't familiar with the characters or anything when starting this book but it didn't take away from it at all. Lexxie included all of the important details without overwhelming me and I was still able to follow perfectly, though I do plan to go back and read Love's Rhythm because it sounds pretty good too! ;)
I loved these characters! Rowan and Aislin were hilarious together, especially in the beginning. That first scene of them first meeting was the best part of the whole book. She is one kick ass chick and well Aislin is pretty kick ass himself! LOL I loved the dynamics between the two. There was some sexual tension but for the most part it was just smokin' hot chemistry! Lexxie really knows how to throw in that little extra sexiness. And oh how I love when two dominant personalities come together, which Rowan and Aislin most certainly are, it's always so much fun to how things play out. And trust me, they do not disappoint!
The other characters were fun too! Rowan's brother Chris was pretty entertaining and his boss Nigel McQueen was a hoot! I'm hoping maybe Chris will get a story some day (hint, hint) because I think the guy deserves a little happiness too!
All in all I really enjoyed this read! It has the right amount of humor, suspense and sex and none over power the other. I really enjoyed the little bit of mystery and suspense and I'll admit, I did not guess the correct guilty party until almost the end, so that made it even better! I'm looking forward to more from the wonderful and talented Lexxie Couper but until then, you should all check out this book and the previous book! You are sure to enjoy them! I recommend this book to all who enjoy a good fun suspense with some added humor and some smokin' hot sex scenes!!!
