"Bodyguard" by Tabatha Kiss


SERIES: Snake Eyes #1
PUBLISHER: Tabatha Kiss
GENRE: Romantic Suspense
SOURCE: Freebie

Everyone has a celebrity they’re head over heels for. Mine is Roxie Roberts but I knew her before the fashion and the fame. 
Before all of that crap, she was my stepsister, Dani. I thought I’d never see her again. Her father kicked me out with nothing but the clothes on my back, so I joined the army to become something she’d be proud of. Instead, I became a killer for the deadliest underground organization in the world, Snake Eyes. They didn’t give me a choice, but I couldn’t live like that. I faked my death and I’ve been in hiding ever since, determined to spend the rest of my days atoning for my sins. Somehow, Snake Eyes found out I’m still alive. They can’t track me down, so they’re going after the one person they know I care about to lure me out. I won’t let them hurt you, Dani. Even if it kills me. 
They told me my stepbrother was dead. 
The guy who kissed me on my birthday and ran out of town the next day. He didn’t even say goodbye. I focused on my work and became one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Every girl wants to be me and every guy wants to date me. But all I’ve ever wanted is Fox. I wasn’t sure I could forgive him for leaving me but now that he’s back… I can’t resist him. Fox promised that he’d never let anyone touch me. Himself included. He won’t corrupt America’s Sweetheart. Even if I want him to…


Don't you just love when a book you grab for free turns out to be a page-turner and you feel like that give-me-the-other-instalments-right-now kind of demanding reader? My, my, I crossed paths with the deadliest underground organization and yet, I've never felt more alive...

I confess I started this book with no big expectations, the author was new to me and I honestly kept getting lots of disappointing freebies lately, so I thought the best approach was to simply read without overthinking about it. Man, Fox made quite difficult not to overthink... About him, that is! It's a mix of things, really, his background, his skills, his caring for Dani, his body everything about Fox makes him a very interesting character. And the most amazing thing is that he feels real, and so Dani. Although they are facing an extreme(ly dangerous) situation, their banters, their fighting to not give in—too soon—to temptation, and the way they act/react still feel believable. Add to this lots of action and intriguing secondary characters, and you'll see the appealing of this book.

If you're into fast-paced romantic suspense with a great chemistry between the characters, I'd tell you to grab this one and let it do its job. In case of a sudden craving, remember there are more books in the series.
