Summary

A bodyguard, a beauty, and a bet. 

“I’m hiring you to do more than guard her, Zander,” my new boss explained. “You’re gonna be her rock. Her human Valium. Her trusted friend. And she’s gonna be your mission from God.” 

“So I’m her babysitter?” 

“Her babysitter, her bodyguard, her f--king service doggie. Whatever she needs or wants, that’s what you’ll be. Anything except her booty call.” The vein in my new boss’s neck bulged. 

“Touch her and I’ll do more than fire your ass, Zander. I’ll rip off your balls.” My buddies laughed when I told them about my ridiculous new job. They said, “Three months on a tour with a world famous beauty, glued to her hip, catering to her every whim? A hundred bucks says you’re gonna break down and bang her within the first month.” But I said nope. No way. Never. “I’m a professional,” I said. “Plus, she’s not even my type. And I’m just getting over a broken heart. It’s never gonna happen.” So I put my money where my mouth was, figuring I’d laugh all the way to the bank. I never thought I’d actually fall in love with the girl.

Or that she’d become my reason for breathing. 

The job, the bet, the girl. It was nothing but fun and games...until it became dead serious. Mister Bodyguard is a standalone, friends to lovers contemporary romance in the Morgan Brothers Series from USA Today best-selling author Lauren Rowe. 

The story of Zander Shaw - Keane Morgan's devoted best friend who is an honorary Morgan Brother - and the pop star who brings him to his knees.

Absolutely Amazing

Massive Lauren Rowe fan. She is the only author I listen to on audible. Mister Bodyguard was everything perfect. it was funny, emotional and swoon worthy. I've never read a character like Zander before, a man who wears his heart on his sleeve and is brutally honest about it it was really refreshing. Aloha was absolutely perfect, for Zander in everyway. The voices were perfect. I loved the poetry parts. Five star all round. of course, I always recommended Lauren Rowe.

Holy hotness Batman!

This book is so filled with ebullient charm that you won't stand a chance in hell when it comes to falling for Zander Shaw. He's a big-hearted, loving, and charismatic mountain of a man. Aloha is "The Package" he is assigned to keep safe. These two have instant chemistry that exudes from every page of this book. The story leads you down a few unexpected turns that keep this couple's journey going and turn it into an amazing read. I'm not sure how you could not love reading about this swoon-worthy Adonis falling for this gorgeous island beauty. The feelings evoked when you read about Aloha's life will probably hit home with many readers, too. Such an emotional journey for this sweet and hilarious girl, who you learn is definitely more than you ever saw coming.

Plus, a huge bonus to this story is Zander's wifey, the one and only Keane Morgan. The interactions between Zander and Keane are everything you hope they are and more. This time the reader gets to see and more emotional side of their friendship and Keane is there for Zander in ways that the roles used to be reversed. As Aloha gets to know Keane, Maddy, and the other supporting characters from the Morgan mafia you will really feel your heart warming even more for her and the reader will undoubtedly love how the new additions to her life change her. 

There really isn't much more I can say about this book to express how much I absolutely LOVED this couple and their story!

My Thoughts on Mister Bodyguard

I'm a huge fan of The Morgan family. And I thought I loved Zander Shaw from his previous appearances in the Morgan books. I loved his relationship with Keane Morgan. I loved how big hearted he came across. I thought I was prepared for how good this book would be. But I was wrong.

Holy smokes. Zander was AMAZING! So funny and yet sensitive and he really does have a huge heart and apparently a lot of other huge things too. His wit and humor were front and center in this one. His charm poured from the page and commanded my attention.

Aloha couldn't have been any more perfect for Zander. Everything she was is everything he needed and vice-versa. Once again Lauren Rowe gives us characters that are so enjoyable to read and that you wish you could be friends with in real life. I laughed and smiled so much during this story.

I keep looking forward to Lauren Rowe books and I'm never disappointed when I get them. I hope she just keeps them coming.

The narration was once again amazing and an absolute joy to listen to.

5 Shaggy Swaggy Stars

Below is my review of my reading this fabulous book by Ms. Rowe, so I'm adding to this by saying that I absolutely loved everything about the narration of this book. Ms. Rowe is an author that I ALWAYS read AND listen to the audiobook because I'm so IN LOVE with her and John Lane's narration. They bring so much life to each and every character and I find myself laughing and/or crying with each audiobook. When listening I totally lose myself in the story and I never feel like I know what's coming next because I'm enthralled with the story.

As with all her audiobooks I will definitely be listening to this one again and again!

As a longtime reader of Ms. Rowe and all her books I knew that when Zander was ready to tell his story it was going to be EPIC!!! And if I could think of a word that conveys that it's bigger than EPIC I would... this book has all the elements of what I love about Ms. Rowe's writing, humor unparalleled by few authors, true love and support of family, hotter than hot sex and a story that consumes me. In addition to all this, Zander and Aloha's story is heartbreakingly beautiful.

We know the swagger that Zander has and his confidence in himself and what he's looking for in a woman is very clear in his mind...even if does fall "in love" quickly...or at least what he thinks is "love." Until he meets the famous child star now turned singer that sells out stadiums, Aloha Carmichael. He thinks he knows what he's signing on for as her body guard thanks to some late night texts. But what he doesn't expect is the woman he meets and comes to know through their interactions...because beneath the façade of what Aloha Carmichael presents to the world, she really is a painfully damaged and broken girl.

And so begins the job that changes both their lives. Getting watch Aloha's first reaction to Zander had me chuckling because he's not who she thought he was thanks to some fast thinking and a little help from smoking the good stuff, when Zander shows up Aloha was awestruck....

"A fine-as-f*** black man in a black button-down shirt. Hot diggity damn, that black dude is one sexy hunk of muscle-clad dark chocolate. High cheekbones. Two diamond studs in his ears. And those lips! Good lord. They're full and gorgeous."

When it becomes apparent this beautiful man is the one charged with protecting her on this tour, let's just say they bother were very happy. The chemistry between Zander and Aloha could not be missed or ignored. As much as Zander wanted to ignore his feelings, especially when the Morgan family is involved with a wager that had me rolling, he's there to protect her but that doesn't stop them from becoming thick as thieves in a friendship that included her climbing him like a koala, movie night and general frivolity!

As the story progresses, we learn so much about Aloha and how she became the person she is....and let me tell you, my heart was breaking for this beautiful girl. She has few that she can trust and allow in her inner circle and the ones that should be in that circle aren't who you'd think they are. Her thoughts on love are definitely jaded...

"Being loved by 'everyone' feels a whole lot like being loved by no one at all."

Oh the way our Zan-Zan cherished this girl. Yes, he's her body guard but he's so much more and as their relationship grows and changes, there are some definite moments that had my eyes tearing up, but in the next scene I'd be snort laughing thanks mostly to Keaney and his conversations with his "wifey." We see a depth to Zander I wasn't expecting but, if possible, made me love him even more. He really is a gentle giant and there are times that truly shocked me and his showing us who was below the Zander Swagger.

This is a quick moving story and as we get to the climax, and oh let me tell you some of the climaxes we get to experience throughout this book... The Sure Thing has a totally new meaning to me...my heart was full-on rooting for Zander and Aloha to find the love they've both sought their entire lives in different capacities. There are some very pivotal scenes that WOW!!! I was fist-pumping at the end of them because oh my goodness I was on the edge of my seat devouring each and every word and action.

Throughout this book, I felt the entire Morgan family embrace me as I read each and every page. There's raucous laughter, tear inducing moments, swoon-worthy actions and above all, love that is so all encompassing that once again I want to be part of this amazing family. They show once again that blood doesn't determine who your family is.

Thank you Ms. Rowe for giving us a book that truly moved me in every way possible and has me geared up and ready for Dax's book!!

Brilliant 💕

I don’t even know where to begin. Zander is big & beautiful with a big heart and an even bigger soul.
Zander has had my heart from day 1 and it was going to take someone pretty freakin awesome to complete him.
Aloha is that someone. She’s just enough crazy to fit in with the Morgan’s, she’s perfect for Zander.
This story was funny and heartbreaking and I loved every minute of it. Zander’s story was amazing enough by itself but when you throw in the entire Morgan Mafia it’s like a giant love fest. I felt like I was right right there with them and I never wanted to leave. I seriously need to meet them all in person. I can’t wait for Dax’s story it’s going to be epic!
The narration was amazing as always, I love Lauren as a narrator as well as an author. John Lane, yummy & sexy and I could listen to him all the live long day! Yee boy! Another brilliant story and I highly recommend it.
Note: Mr Bodyguard is a stand alone, but you’re gonna want to read about all the Morgan’s. You have been warned. 💕

Aloha💘Zander The Honorary Morgan Meets His Destiny

Another great book in the Morgan Brothers series. This story is Zander, a brother from another mother and honorary Morgan. Lauren Rowe continues to entertain her readers and listeners performing with John Lane. Zander takes a job as a bodyguard hoping to one day tour with Dax's band, 22 Goats. Instead he is assigned to guard Aloha, a beautiful pop star. In true Morgan fashion a bet is placed to see how long it will be before he falls for the pop star. It is great to learn more about Zander and his huge heart. Also great to see the Morgan clan, which has expanded to include wives and girlfriends. Love the humor and banter, Lauren Rowe does not disappoint and continues with the fun dialogue and keeps it fresh. Thanks for another awesome story & Audible listen! I can't wait for Dax's book.

Love Zander

Omg I love the Morgan family, I cannot say this enough. I fell hard for Zander’s character in the previous book and I’m glad this book stayed true to his personality. I loved Aloha and loved how it showed al the issues a celebrity can have. There was just so much to love about this book and the series is so much fun. I hope there will be more books because I need more Morgans.

Can't get enough of the Morgan Bros

I am a huge fan of this series...this book included. I love how Lauren Rowe weaves comedy into the story. Narration is great too. I laughed a lot while listening. There are some similarities to Ball Peen Hammer, but not in a repetitive way; in a way that makes you believe Keene and Zander are best friends. Can't wait for the next book...I think Dax is the only one we haven't heard about yet!

Zander and Aloha

Oh man do I love me some Zander! I could not get enough of this man once I met him in Keane's book, Ball Peen Hammer. Zander is the type of man that all men should aspire to be. He's funny, wise, charming, sincere, kind, generous, considerate, compassionate, protective, loyal, and his sex appeal is off the charts! Aloha is a former child star who is now a pop star and has never really felt loved by anyone who is supposed to love and protect her.

Zander's first security job is to be Aloha's bodyguard on her new World Tour. They instantly hit it off with their personalities and of course, insane physical attraction to each other, but as much as he tries to keep it professional he only lasts for about a month before he gives in and they make it romantic. Zander helps Aloha feel loved and trusted and safe and helps her finally free herself from her demons. They were the perfect fit for each other.

This was a great listen; perfect amount of drama and suspense with lots of hilarious and sexy time moments. So glad Lauren gave Zander his own book as an honorary Morgan brother.

As far as narration, as usual I enjoyed Lauren Rowe and John Lane and think they did a stellar job.

Great addition to the Morgan Brothers!

I loved being thrown back into the Morgan family with Mister Bodyguard! Ball Peen Hammer was my first book by Lauren Rowe so Keane will always be my favorite, but Zander is such a loveable goofball (like Keane) with an extremely hot alpha side! Zander is such a great character; he is so kind, sincere, generous and honest, his only downside seems to be that he wears his heart on his sleeve and falls in love too fast. Aloha took me a little while to warm up too. She is a huge popstar who is used to fans and everyone adoring her, but she doesn’t really know what love is. I was worried that Zander and Aloha wouldn’t work together well and the relationship wouldn’t seem right, but these two are perfect together! They were exactly what the other needed, Zander helped Aloha be stronger and face some of her problems. The fact that she meshed so well with the Morgan family just made it that much better.

The narration for this book was perfect! I love that Lauren Rowe narrates her own books and she does a great job with it. Her and John Lane are amazing together!
