Fast Burn

Bran Berry has been after Sahara Silver since he first meet her but all she wanted was for him to join her bodyguards. Though Bran can tell she wants more, but business comes first. Then Sahara will be taken and it will be up to Bran and the other bodyguards to find Sahara.

Fast Burn is the fourth book to the series Body Armor by Lori Foster. I enjoyed going back to this series and this was a very good book. Although, there was one line that had me laughing. It was from the movie Taken. The one line that he is saying to his daughter in the second movie, “I am going to be taken”. That had me laughing out loud because it was too familiar.

I liked Bran but there were times when you wanted to punch him. He was a little controlling with the relationship but I could forgive him because he was a good guy. He wanted to do protect Sahara, he just had to admit that she was strong on her own and he does, it just takes some time. Sahara was a strong woman who knew how to kick butt, though she was a little out of her league with kidnappers. Although, she did not make it easier for those kidnappers.

There were some twists within the book that was interesting. I kind of wish there was a little more detail with the outcome but it was still good.

Rock Me

Summer Michelle’s dream is to become a singer and she is getting a big break. It is down to two singers who will be the opening act for a big pop star, but then threats start to happen. Summer will be told that she will be given a bodyguard and it is none other than her old bodyguard, the man that she had an affair with four years ago. She hopes that they can get a second chance but will have to get Ben’s trust again.

Ben Hollander had been fired from his last job because he had been caught having an affair with a contestant. Now four years later he will be guarding her once again but he will not let it get physical. He doesn’t want to be like his father, though Ben will have to fight hard to resist as Summer will pursue him.

Rock Me is the first book to the series Bodyguard Bad Boys by Carly Phillips. Carly Phillips is an author I can rely on to write a fun and quick novel that has elements of love/lust and some danger in them. This was a great first book to the series. I have a definite soft spot for bodyguard books.

I was apprehensive because I thought Summer was going to be a diva and was the one to turn in Ben but quickly found out that was wrong. Summer was a young woman who just wanted to be a singer. She fell for Ben but things got in their way. I liked that they got a second chance to try again. Ben was definitely guarded but when you find out about his past it was understandable. I thought Ben should have put up a little more of a fight to resist Summer but he didn’t.

The threat was interesting because I had guessed right away the person but then I wasn’t sure as Carly Phillips wasn’t giving away too many hints.

The Devilish Lord Will

Will Mackenzie usually works alone but then Josette will come to him with a request to help her group find a trove of gold. He will team up with Josette to help find the gold that is lost somewhere in the highlands, which will help Highland women who lost a lot in the war. Will trusts Josette, they had worked together as man and wife and she was the woman he loved.

The Devilish Lord Will is the tenth book from the series Mackenzies & McBrides by Jennifer Ashley. I have followed this series from the beginning and have loved most of the books. Anything with Ian has always been fantastic to read. This book was good but by no means was it my favorite.

I think it was a good story but I found it a little boring at times. It didn’t drive me to read and want to know more. I am not always a big spy reader but it wasn’t even that. Maybe there wasn’t enough to really draw me into that story. Although, it was still good just took me longer to finish. I did enjoy the characters of Will and Josette. I liked that they had been a team beforehand which of course turned to lovers. I enjoyed their teamwork and I think Jennifer Ashley wrote them well. There was sweet interactions between them that showed Will truly loved Josette and her daughter.

Of course when the next book to the series comes out I will read it right away because I really can’t get enough of this series.
