Tempting the Bodyguard (Gamble Brothers, #3) by J. Lynn (A.K.A. Jennifer L Armentrout) ~ Tour Stop

Book Title: Tempting The Bodyguard
Author: J Lynn
Release Date: 5/12
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Synopsis:

He can protect her from everyone except himself.

Alana Gore is in danger. A take-no-prisoners publicist, her way with people has made her more than a few enemies over the years, but a creepy stalker is an entirely different matter. She needs a bodyguard, and the only man she can ask is not only ridiculously hot, but reputed to have taste for women that goes beyond adventurous.

Chandler Gamble has one rule: don't protect anyone you want to screw. But with Alana, he's caught between his job and his increasingly hard libido. On one hand, Alana needs his help. On the other, Chandler wants nothing more than to take the hot volcano of a woman in hand. To make her writhe in pleasure, until she's at his complete mercy.

She needs protection. He needs satisfaction. And the moment the line is crossed, all hell will break loose...



My Thoughts

4 stars - Sexy Chandler refuses to let her run...he chases!

First Impressions...

I'm sure it's no big surprise that I'm a huge JLA fan.  If she writes it, then I will read it.  Period.  This particular series is more sexy than I'm normally comfortable with but I loved it still.  The cover isn't my favorite - it reminds me of a book I didn't like much.  But it's all JLA and I loved it.

The Characters...

Of course I love Chandler.  He's seriously yummy if not a bit kinky.  He's not afraid of his heart or of what it could mean when he feels things for Alana.  Never met the right women to bring out those feeling is all.  I loved that about him.  The boy has skills too.  He heats up the bedroom (or any room really) and the kitchen.  He can cook!  He's protective and don't threaten his girl cause that just makes him mad.  Hehe.  Love Chandler.

As for Alana, she took a while for me to like.  Still stinging from what she did to Chad's girl, I didn't like her.  But as I got to know her and why she's the way she is, I started to get her.  I thought is was cute that she ran.  Kinda silly to run away from a security guy who's used to finding peeps but whatever.  She did turn out to be cute.  She's constantly telling Chandler that this isn't appropriate.  Yeah, he teaches her how to be really inappropriate.  They are definitely fun together.

The Story...

Someone is threatening Alana.  She needs Chandler to protect her.  But with their history and the attraction between the two them, things get fun fast.  The heat level is HIGH with a side of kink.  I enjoyed how Chandler figured her out and then protected her from the person threatening her and her own silly fears.  Their story is great.

Could I Put It Down...

I put it down about a third in and then finished the next morning. 

In The End...

A great addition to the Gamble Brothers series and anyone who loves the brazen line will love it too.  All three of these books can be read stand alone.
