The Bodyguard Series by @Rjscott_author #REVIEW
Bodyguards, Inc #1
Bodyguard Adam Freeman draws what everyone else thinks is the short straw at the convention for a procedural cop show - as bodyguard to TV actor Logan Brady. Or as the Internet has labelled him, Logan 'Sex God' Brady.
Logan is taking part in a convention at a London Hotel for his show 'Night Cop' and someone is threatening his life.
Adam gets more than he bargained for when his client combines coming out of the closet with them both trying to stay alive.
This was a great first book in a series. I like a book that has that first strong attraction and then builds off the chemistry between the two MC's. They want each other but are both hesitant for different reasons. This book does a good job of establishing the world and introduces us to secondary characters that will keep me coming back for more.
Logan is in the closet like a lot of male lead actors in Hollywood. He has a hit show and isn't sure how his fans will react to his coming out but knows he needs to make some changes in his life.
Adam is just supposed to be the muscle for Logan at the convention but being an ex-cop he can't stop his brain from trying to figure out who Logan's stalker could be.
The author does a great job a throwing in some red herrings, so just when you think you KNOW who is sending Logan the nasty letters you find yourself second guessing your thoughts. Just the right amount of bait and switch with the crazy.
I for one can't wait to read more about the sexy men of Bodyguards, Inc!

Bodyguards, Inc #2
When Bodyguard, Ben Collins, finds Daniel Lincoln in a room, hiding and hurt, he doesn't immediately think Daniel is the victim of abuse. Daniel is good at pretending and being a finalist in a TV singing competition he seems like he has it made.
But something about Daniel calls to Ben's need to protect and he hands Daniel a card to contact him if ever Daniel needed help. Abruptly, after one frightened phone call from Daniel, Ben is racing to Daniel's aid and what he finds is a horror he can't imagine.
Daniel is trapped in a relationship where anger and controlling hate are the only emotions he is given. When his boyfriend crosses the line and leaves Daniel vulnerable and broken there is only one man that he wants to call.
The sexy bodyguard who promised he could help him.
Oh this author is good at tugging on my heartstrings. It didn't take me long before I wanted to protect Daniel as much as Ben. I appreciate when authors include family and friends in books not just people that might be the next couple, I feel it gives the book more depth and brings more realism to the story. Daniels family was so great once they knew what was going on.
Daniel's emotions are so very real especially his shame at what he sees as being less than a man. Ben is great at showing Daniel support but allowing him to stand on his own. It had to be very hard for Ben to step back once you find out about his past. The slow build to the relationship in this story was so needed and really gave you time to fall in love with the characters on their own and then together.
The teasers we get every time that Ross and Kyle are on the pages are fabulous. I know I am not the only one looking forward to their book and getting the story behind Bodyguards, Inc.
If you love to read about strong, protective men, then this is a series that should be on your TBR list!
