I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Hannah looks more like PA than a bodyguard. And she’s having a very bad time. Her mother just died and her boyfriend, an agent at the same firm, has dumped her the day of the funeral. And instead of getting the Madrid job her boss promised her, she’s staying in Texas and guarding movie star Jack Stapleton. Her cover? Instead of her usual executive assistant blend into the background look, she’s pretending to be his gf.
My thoughts about The Bodyguard
I loved Hannah – she’s so relatable. Dealing with grief from her mom’s death and that her relationship with her mom wasn’t the best, she still manages to keep a sense of perspective. Even when dealing with having to see her cheating dumper of a BF at work, after he gets back from the Madrid job, she’s got a sense of humor.
I loved that she’s unapologetically herself, refusing to get a makeover or act any way but as herself.
Instead of an egotistical jerk of a star, Jack is kind and warm to Hannah despite dealing with his own stressors and demons of the past.
Together they have a warm, caring, sweet relationship full of delightful banter.
This is a sweet southern charmer of a story that’s compulsively readable. As they navigate, family drama, ex-hell, and crazy stalkers, you’ll be rooting for Hannah and Jake.
