Bodyguard Max Connery is used to being mistaken for being younger than he is.
Being carded every time he buys a beer is usual. Even though he’s just turned twenty eight and has two tours in Afghanistan as a pilot under his belt.
When a threat is made on the life of a prince attending University in the UK, Max is the perfect choice to blend in with the mixed house of students and to keep Prince Lucien safe. Even if it means joining the swim team to be by his side.
But, when death visits the halls, abruptly this job is a long way past keeping the prince happy and safe. Instead Max has to keep Lucien alive.
When you think of a bodyguard you probably imagine tall and muscular when you meet Max he is short and lean. He also looks a lot younger than his years with his baby face features. Looks can be deceiving. Max can get the drop on much bigger men and more often than not has the element of surprise.
When you think of a Prince you probably weren’t imagining Lucien. Known to his few friends as Luke he lives pretty much like every other student at Uni and there is certainly no pomp and ceremony following him around. As Max looks young enough to pass as a student there is no one better for the job when the Prince’s life is in danger.
This is a sweet love story with a slow burn and a dose of speedo’s. The attraction is obvious from the start but Luke’s inexperience and hang-ups from the past and Max’s dedication to his job don’t make it easy for either of them.
The threat to Luke’s life is a memory from his past, a past littered with sadness and feelings of not being good enough. In the end it seems almost too simple yet is dangerous enough to be extremely serious. Max will have to shatter some of Luke’s illusions to catch the perpetrator and keep his young charge safe.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
