What happens when the most successful boy band on the planet breaks up?
How about twenty thousand fans screaming my name.
But the price of fame comes with an increased risk to my safety.
I’ve been avoiding the dreaded B word for as long as I can, but after a close call with a rambunctious fan, I can’t do it anymore.
It’s time to give in.
I need to hire a full-time bodyguard.
And when he shows up, he not only screams badass, he’s another B word I try to stay away from: boyfriend material.
Protecting people is not what my company usually does, but the boss knows I need money, and the pop star is offering an insane amount to live with him and make sure no more crazy fans break into his house.
I’m doing it for the money and nothing else.
He may be the prettiest man I’ve ever seen, and I may feel sorry for the celebrity life he’s been forced into since he was a teenager, but that doesn’t mean anything.
Just because he fascinates me, that doesn’t mean I like him.
Professionalism. I’m gonna live it. Breathe it. Enforce it … Mostly.

And then there's Brix, the ex military man turned bodyguard. He doesn't want this assignment but can't resist the payout involved. What follows are non stop thrills as the reader is treated to Brix becoming a live-in bodyguard who has a secret.
The banter between the two men is a riot. My favorite part has to be the rules Harley establishes for Brix, which left me snickering throughout. I could picture the antics as if I was there, and couldn't stop laughing.
Written in first person pov, the writing style and character depth are both stupendous. The author excels in differentiating between Harley's pop star persona and the man behind the facade. His sweet and insecure sides are well written, as he develops into a fabulous multi-layered character. As well, she impresses with the way she gets into the characters heads, giving the reader the good, the bad, and the ugly of what the men are thinking.
The author does an excellent job delving into some serious topics, including the downsides of fame, the ugly sides of military life, and the unfairness of the American health care system. It's all well done, handled with care and understanding.
There are a fair share of scary moments and creepy feels, but most of the story is sugary sweet, helping to keep the eeriness and angst factor in check.

She doesn't take anything too seriously and lives to create an escape from real life for her readers. The ideas always begin with a wackadoodle premise, and she does her best to turn them into romances with heart.
With a short attention span that rivals her son's, she writes multiple different pairings: MM, MMF, and MF.
She's also an Australian girl and apologises for her Australianisms that sometimes don't make sense to anyone else.
