Summary

I never thought I’d see Makayla Pierson again.

Then I was assigned to protect her.

One week. No touching. Absolutely no sex.

Just seven days of restraint...

How hard can that be?

When I walked away from Makayla ten years ago, I swore I’d never look back. So did she, after the haunting lie I told her...But it was the only way to keep her safe and as far away from me as possible.

She’s better off without me. I don’t care if I’m broken without her.

But years later, when I’m hired by her agent to act as her bodyguard, I can’t keep myself away, especially when I learn how much danger she's in.

Now she’s mine for a week, and I’m not going to let anything happen to her. Even if she seems intent on making my life a living hell. She always did know how to hold a grudge. 

She doesn’t have to like me, she just has to follow every single one of my commands.

There’s only one thing I’m not sure I can protect her from.

Me.

**This title was previously released as Protector. I've added over ten thousand words, making Makayla and Jesse's story sexier, packed with more intensity... and did I mention sexier? Fans of the original story will fall in love all over again, guaranteed. Also, this is a totally SAFE, full-length book with a happily ever after, no cheating, and plenty of steam. **

good story can't stand the females (h & narrator)

as is always, aiden snow is incredible. story is interesting and i really enjoyed the story. unfortunately, the female part literally killed me. i finished the story by skipping almost all of her chapters not just because the h was such a massive, self-absorbed narassistic bi**h. no matter how many times he risks his life for her she constantly doubts, questions and betrays him. the narrator was as bad - dragged out the end of every word she said, "badddd to happen to mmmeeeeeeeee", "and crissssppppp under-shirrrttttttttt" UGH!! so could have enjoyed this but... just ugh

LOVED every bit of it!

This was worth every bit of one the three *bonus* credits I bought this month! The storyline was great, narration was great and since I had not heard/read the previous book referred to, this was all NEW SEXY HOT YUMMY stuff I had not experienced before. Perhaps to someone who had read/heard the previous book, this "added content" may not be toe curling enough. I however could not be more pleased to have as a part of my Audible library. Do it for the suspense of finding out who these/this killer is. Do it for the sexy hot second chance romance. Do it because you deserve an entire Saturday in bed with Diet Coke, sometimes tea, warm blankets, and your snuggle dog or snuggle kitty needs quality HOURS of you laying doing nothing ALL DAY LONG (with headphones preferably). Do it because you just need something that's not too intense, but enough sexy spark and suspense to keep your library stocked with variety.

The female character killed it for me

This story had a great potential. It was sad to see it fall apart because of the female character, she completely destroyed this it for me. She was absolutely childish and immature, her actions were extremely annoying. The male character was pretty deep but the overall story fell short for me. Thanks

Amazing story!

Makayla and Jesse were high school sweethearts and he broke her hart. Ten years later he is her bodyguard and she discover the reasons that he left in the first place. This was a great story. It was fast paste, romantic, steamy, action and a happily ever after. Love the characters and the twist in the story.

Just the bit of action I was looking for!

Second chance romance with a dash of action! I love Penelope Bloom and I was browsing and saw this title and realized I had never read it so it was great to have something to throw on as an audiobook to listen while I do my work and stuff. Aiden's growly performance as sexy as sin Jesse was perfect! Jesse broke up with Makayla ten years ago. He broke her heart because he thought he was protecting her and saving her years of sadness. He wanted her to do great things with her future. Well, he's back in her life unexpectedly. Both of them are surprised when they discover that her new bodyguard is him. Makayla needs protection from the stalker she seems to have picked up because of her hit TV show. Their chemistry is palpable. And in the end neither can resist it. All the things I love! Action, danger, a little mystery, hot hot hot steamy chemistry, and a HEA!

Something missing

Something was missing but I'm not sure what. This story just didn't draw me in. I didn't really care for the characters or the storyline. The main characters didn't seem to be in love and their HEA fell flat to me.

Second hand romance

This is a completely different genre than I expect from this author- it's an action/suspense romance following Jesse, a bodyguard and prior SEAL and Makayla. This a second-chance romance; Jesse left Kay 10 years ago to protect her. Now an actress, she has to deal with stalkers and people trying to kill her. He is hired without her knowing and once they meet again, the sparks fly. There was intrigue and suspense (who is doing chasing them?) and action and few tense spots. I overall enjoyed the book although I thought that the heroine was a bit weak in terms of her constant forgiveness of him. Aiden Snow, with his fantastic, low and gruff voice was perfect for Jesse. He played a passably good female too. Summer Bloom also did really well and I enjoyed their narration overall.

The Bodyguard

This was a very sexy story. It had you panting at every turn of the page not knowing what's next. Good stuff. T. Blair

THE MALE NARRATOR!!

This book, was great! O my word! The male narrator, Lethal!! WoW!! I could just listen to him forever! I wish all audiobooks would be narrated by Aiden Snow, he’s better than good!
