Former Navy SEAL Xander Buckley owes everything to his buddy Sully, even his life. So when Sully calls to ask him to work as a personal security detail, Xander doesn’t hesitate—until he learns who Sully’s sister is and what the job entails. Country music star Pixie Hart, aka Kelly Jo Sullivan, does not want a personal bodyguard staying with her while she’s on vacation, no matter what her older brother says. Yes, she’s had some close calls with obsessed fans, untrustworthy security guards, and a rather unpleasant ex-boyfriend, but she’s pretty sure she can handle her own safety. Then she meets the hot, brooding retired SEAL who has vowed to keep her safe, and her opinion changes. A few weeks of tight quarters has Xander and Kelly getting closer than they ever expected, but Xander can’t forget that his number one priority is to keep the country star safe. Vividly written descriptions will quickly draw readers into the small-town setting and secluded cabin, where there’s only one bed.
VERDICT Harlow pens a steamy, fun bodyguard romance (the second in a series about the Buckley boys, following Runaway Love) that will delight readers.
