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.

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.

Ehh

Ok. This is a review for all the books prior to this one as well.

Firstly - the word “crotch” is not sexy. It’s really, really not. And then “mermaid crotch” crops up more than once? I actually cringed so hard I nearly skipped the rest of the chapter.

Second - “pulsing clits” (aka singing clits, apparently) - geezus this phrase is so overused. In ALL the books. Here’s some acceptable alternatives and synonyms: throbbing/swollen/sensitive/aching/tingling sex/vagina/center/pelvis/girlparts/pu$$y. I feel like the author just has a love for the word “clit” that won’t die. Literally the phrase “pulsing aching desperate clit” just played in the book while I was writing this. She has said “clit” four times in this chapter, and it’s not like the chapters are even five minutes long! Speaking of that...

Third - holy crapballs, you do not need a new chapter every time a character blinks. The precious book had more than 70 chapters, many of which take place with the same narrator in the same location talking to the same characters. Why????????

There are some good elements to the books. Keane and Maddy in particular are great. But I am waffling on whether to finish this series.

Wanted to like it, and tried, but not so much

Initially I thought this would be a fun story and I wanted to like it. To be fair, I typically don’t enjoy rock/pop star stories and this didn’t change that.
Zander’s story with Aloha didn’t convince me it was a genuine relationship. As a person with strong ethnicity, I found their pairing stereotypical - superstar-struck out of the tabloids.
The nicknames went above and beyond comfortable to read/ listen to. Seriously, LA or not, high or not, who talks that way?
This earned 2-3 stars from me simply because I stopped listening 3 times yet I came back three times to gut it out. I’ll never get those 8-9 hours back in my life. Sorry, not sorry.

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. 💕

Best of the Morgan Brothers

Maybe Z seems like the best brother after listening to Ball Peen Hammer but I loved his character and story the most, so far.

Second review

Upon farther listening to this series, I released it’s nothing but product of the “industry” and reality of poor souls who sold their souls to the devil or had their souls sold by their parents.

Also Great

Was not sure I would like this book as part of the Morgan Brothers series. Boy, was I wrong. It’s as great as the others.
