Who knew the mission would come with extra rewards.

Rick Cantrell is an up and coming actor, who’s been featured in the top ten of the sexiest men’s polls. He also has a stalker on his trail.

Jordan Riker is a lion shifter with a difficult past. He quit his pride due to his controlling father’s demands, and he was burned by his boyfriend shortly after. Now, he’s a newbie bodyguard, assigned to protect the seriously hot, Rick Cantrell. Though Jordan is immediately drawn to the charismatic actor and recognizes the connection between them, he resists Cantrell’s sexual advances to uphold his professional standards and guard his heart from further hurt.

Rick Cantrell is a never-take-no-for-an-answer kind of guy. Despite his bodyguard’s best efforts to push him away, Rick thinks he may have the man of his dreams in Jordan Riker.

My View:

Romancing the Guardian by Ali Atwood is not a deep book. It is not the next great read. Heck, it may be a fairly forgettable series in the scheme of things. There isn’t anything to make it special. However, it is a fun way to spend an hour or two.

Jordan and Rick are thrown together when Rick’s management hire’s Brody’s firm (from book 1) to provide a bodyguard against a stalker threat. True to formula, things get hot and heavy quickly. The one moment Jordan leaves Rick alone, things go to hell. Of course, Jordan is there at just the right moment to save the day. Like I said formula.

Despite all this, Jordan and Rick will likely charm you. For me, it was Jordan more so that Rick, but I liked them well enough together.

As with every title I have ever read from this publisher, the final version is still riddled with typos, incorrect words, and grammar mistakes. If you can forgive those, you might enjoy this story.
