ARC Review: Mister Bodyguard by Lauren Rowe

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*cking 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 Bestselling 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.

I do declare... Zander. Was. EVERYTHING!!



Zander... Zander... Zander... I could not get enough of this young man. His mama sure brought him up right. One of the things I love most about Lauren Rowe is her ability to create such real and yet impossibly perfect characters. They're people we should all aspire to be. Zander is the type of man that all men should emulate. He's funny, wise, charming, sincere, kind, generous, considerate, compassionate, protective, loyal, etc. And his sex appeal is off the charts!


Zander typically wears his heart on his sleeve and when he meets Aloha, his heart started calling out for her almost immediately. But Aloha knows nothing of love, at least not the real sense. Being adored by millions of fans and earning the adulation of those in the industry have prepared her for nothing. So Zander's got his work cut out for him. Luckily he's made of sterner stuff and doesn't cower in the face of rejection. His heart is huge enough to battle her insecurities, showing her what their love could be. It was magnifique!



Everything about this story appealed to me. Zander, of course. I don't believe there is anyone in the universe who could possibly resist his charms. I also loved each and every interaction between the Morgan crew and their circle. It made for some hilarious times and when these people get together, you can't help but feel the familial bond they share. I want to be adopted by the Morgans too!
