Tempting the Bodyguard Review

Take a Gamble on Chandler...

Tempting the Bodyguard (Gamble Brothers #3)
by J.Lynn/Jennifer L. Armentrout

What they say: 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...

What I say: It seems like we've been waiting for ages for the third instalment in JLA's/J.Lynn's Gamble Brothers series or maybe it's just me being impatient?! With Chase's and Chad's stories already being told, this time we follow the older Gamble brother, Chandler, and Alana/Miss Gore (Chad's bossy former publicist). 

As the older brother, Chandler is used to taking care of everybody and getting things done. I loved Chandler's alpha tendencies, and his, umm...extracurricular activities are kinda hot! Chandler is nothing if not determined and he doesn't have the same parental issues (well mostly).

Chandler owns a security company, which is handy when it comes to helping Alana. Which he's all about doing. Where Alana is concerned, Chandler is uber protective. Before reading the book I wasn't particular keen on the idea of Chandler and Alana together, because in Chad's book, she's kinda a pain. But once I got to read her POV, I gradually began to change my mind about Alana. The bossy, tough outer-shell, hides a vulnerable and caring young woman. 

Chandler's had a thing for Alana since he met her months ago and he definitely brings out her naughty side. She comes back into his life when she needs protection from a stalker. I knew Chandler had some more kinky interests but JLA avoids going down the heavy route and there story is sweet, yet steamy.

I really enjoyed Tempting the Bodyguard, which kinda reminded me of the Tall, Dark and Deadly series by Lisa Renee Jones (at least in part). I'm always gonna be a big fan of a JLA book, because I really like Jennifer's writing style; it's flirty, snappy and, more often than not, really funny.

4 Stars in my Sky!
