Review…Tempting the Bodyguard by Jennifer L. Armentrout

ttb cover



A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

He can protect her from everyone except himself.

Alana Gore is in danger. A take-no-prisoners publicist, her way with people has made her more than a few enemies over the years, but a creepy stalker is an entirely different matter. She needs a bodyguard, and the only man she can ask is not only ridiculously hot, but reputed to have taste for women that goes beyond adventurous.

Chandler Gamble has one rule: don’t protect anyone you want to screw. But with Alana, he’s caught between his job and his increasingly hard libido. On one hand, Alana needs his help. On the other, Chandler wants nothing more than to take the hot volcano of a woman in hand. To make her writhe in pleasure, until she’s at his complete mercy.

She needs protection. He needs satisfaction. And the moment the line is crossed, all hell will break loose..


My review:

Tempting the Bodyguard is book number three in author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Gamble Brothers Series and is packed with suspense, emotion and delicious heat!

Publicist Alana Gore is used to not exactly being high on people’s favorite list. Her take no prisoners attitude when it came to handling her career and clients hasn’t earned her whole lot of friends. She was used to that. But when she starts receiving actual threats and finds herself in danger at the hands of a crazed stalker, she realizes things have gone to a whole new level and she’s scared. Realizing she needs help, she turns to the only person she knows is capable of keeping her safe….Chandler Gamble. He’s also the last one she wants to ask for help. Now she just needs to ignore his ruggedly handsome looks, hot body and sexy advances and she’ll be ok. Easier said than done when it comes to Chandler….

Bodyguard Chandler Gamble can’t believe Alana Gore is asking him for help. Never in a million years would he have thought the hard assed Alana would ask anyone for assistance with anything, especially from him. When he hears what’s been going on with her stalker, however, he knows immediately this is serious. Of course it isn’t serious enough to kill the lust he feels for this hard-edged, understated beauty. Hopefully he can stop thinking with the head in his pants long enough to figure out who is putting Alana’s life in danger and then maybe with a bit of luck, he can convince her along the way to admit the undeniable chemistry between them.

The tensions are high from the very beginning and as time ticks by the threats become more dangerous….but so does the heat between Alana and Chandler. Will they be able to find something good in this bad situation?

Oh my yum. Talk about some serious heat going on between Alana and Chandler. From the very beginning, their attraction was undeniable and the fact that Alana didn’t want to admit it made things even more delicious. Chandler has his work cut out for him, not only with finding the stalker, but also with getting Alana into his bed. That man does some pretty hot persuading and is damn persistent. I loved reading their interactions. They are a great mix of give and take, hard and soft, push and pull. There was plenty of action mixed in with the heat, which added a great element to this story. I was really kept guessing as to the identity of the stalker until the very end adding another great layer to this book.

Thank you, Jennifer, for Tempting the Bodyguard and all of the Gamble Brothers! I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us next!
