Geoffrey Ralse is known for being the life of the party. He loves the club scene, hanging with his friends, and flirting with whomever catches his eye. He certainly isn’t going to stop living his life just because some would-be stalker starts sending him threats.
But it all changes when Geoffrey is drugged and wakes up half naked in his own home with a new message from his stalker.
He needs help and there’s only one person he trusts…
Protective Agent Sven Larsen has been fighting Geoffrey’s flirtatious advances for months, even though he’s impossibly drawn to the man. There’s no way he can be around him twenty-four/seven and not finally crack. But one look at Geoffrey’s haunted eyes, and he knows there’s no way he’s letting Geoffrey walk out of Ward Security without him.
Even if it means breaking his own rules, he will keep Geoffrey safe.
Trigger warning: There is a very short section with sexual assault that some could find upsetting.
I really liked this! This duo can’t seem to stop writing amazing stories.
This is a spinoff of The Unbreakable Bond series and while this can be read as a stand-alone, you would be missing out on a part of background if you skipped that series.
We met Geoffrey before as the happy twink who was crushing hard on Snow, and then flirting endlessly with Sven, the bodyguard. But Geoffrey is not just an airheaded twink, he is a young self made millionaire who took care of his brother after their parents died.
Geoffrey hires Sven when he it is clear he has a stalker. At first there were only messages, but then someone drugged Geoffrey and took him home. Geoffrey feels shaken up by what happened and asks Rowe to please send Sven as his bodyguard, because the big blond Norwegian man makes him feel safe.
Sven has been resisting Geoffrey for months. Ever since Geoffrey took self defense lessons from him, Geoffrey hasn’t stopped flirting with him. But Sven doesn’t want to be a conquest and he is also afraid to break Geoffrey since he is so much smaller than Sven is. But of course being Geoffrey’s bodyguard 24/7 is not helping with his attraction…
I really loved these guys. Sven was the big silent type and Geoffrey the fun and happy guy with a lot of hidden depths. This book was also incredibly sexy and I loved how these guys got to know each other first before anything happened. It made the sex scenes that much more intimate, and hot, since they could both really let go.
I can’t wait for the rest of the books in this series! There is just something about this author duo that makes me want to buy any book they write.
There is great build-up, authentic dialogue, and lots of amazing sexy times. Just go read it.
