Storm Ellison is the sexiest man on two legs. The gorgeous young star of “Trapped on an Island”, the hottest reality show on television, is instantly recognizable the moment he leaves his palatial mansion. Paparazzi follow him everywhere, leaving him no peace or privacy, selling his pictures to the tabloids, and cementing his reputation in the press as a slutty gay playboy. As Storm prepares to sign his first major movie deal, his manager decides he needs protection. What he doesn’t expect, is to be attracted to the cold bastard who’s now running his life.
Balthazar Grant, freelance bodyguard, is a huge, handsome, rough and ready former Marine, trained by the best, and willing to step between Storm and anyone stupid enough to come at him.
Always stoic and serious, Taz lends a deadly presence to Storm’s entourage whenever he ventures out in public. Storm doesn’t want a bodyguard, much less one who won’t let him live his fast and loose lifestyle with impunity and he’s certainly not one to be dictated to by an overconfident Marine who has opinions about everything including who he should hook-up with.
When a deadly threat hits Storm’s world, he’s suddenly living his own reality show, only this one has an outcome which doesn’t involve being voted off an island. Will Storm wake up before it’s too late and will Taz be able to fight his attraction to the handsome young superstar while trying to convince him he’s in very real danger? The pair will soon learn that reality is stranger than fiction.
I like a story with a big gruff bodyguard and Taz is just that and more. His job is to protect up and coming star of the screen Storm Ellison who has a reputation for being a bit of a whore. Storm is young, not as confident as he pretends and not at all like the tabloids portray him but it takes Taz a while to realise there is much more to his new charge than meets the eye.
Taz fancies Storm and Storm fancies Taz right back but they take their sweet time getting there and doing anything about it! Before they both wise up we see Storm with various other men and Taz trying to avoid being molested by the horny chauffeur. It’s slow burn, a little bit frustrating but eventually they get there and I have to say it was well worth the wait.
Alongside their dawdling relationship Storm is actually in danger from someone he trusts. There is mystery, although it was quite easy to work out who the bad guy was, and the lives of Storm and those closest to him are in danger. For such a sweet story the ending for the bad guy was pretty gruesome!
Jonathan Young is a narrator that sounds as though he is having fun whilst reading. He did a great job with all the characters apart from one. I hated the voice of Jules, the very in your face and overbearing best friend. She sounded whiny, her voice grated and I got sick of her fast. I’m still not sure whether any change in her voice would have redeemed her though so it was probably not he narrators fault!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
