Her Honor's Bodyguard
Vance had always been extremely proud of Noella, and just because his life had been ruined, he saw no reason why she had to have the same faith. When his dad died, leaving him and his mother penniless, he dropped ...more

Kudos to the author for NOT dragging out the story until the last couple pages like some authors do. It was well paced ...more
Her Honor's Bodyguard (Kindle Edition) by Johnny Ray was an interesting raead with plenty of two-fisted action and steamy sex scenes. The plot was equal parts mystery and romance. I can't honestly say that this book has turned me into a Johnny Ray fan because it certainly didn't do that. He writes sex scenes like a woman but that might be excusable because he was describing those scenes through a woman's eyes. Perhaps he was writing this story more for the female readers than for us men. Anyway, I finis...more
Her Honor's Bodyguard is Mystery/Romantic Thriller and I want to first off say that this is my first mystery book I have ever read so I was a bit skeptical about the genre. Call me lazy, but I do not really enjoy mysteries because I get really impatient with all the unanswered questions, guessing games and whodunit. However, this did not stop me from enjoying this novel and its safe to say that I think I will now st ...more
Have you ever read a book that kept your attention the entire time? It kept getting better and better? After reading it, you want there to be a sequel and a movie about it? Well, I went into reading Her Honor's Bodyguard with no expectation.
I liked the other 2 books I had read by Johnny Ray and thought, "It will be hard to live up to those past 2 books." However, I have to say this book was better than the first 2 by this author.
Why? The plot, charac ...more
Let me repeat that I enjoy books that don't drag on before with overdone back stories or unnecessary scenes before the confl ...more
I received this book from the author in a Librarything giveaway in exchange for a honest review. The book is about two people Noella and Vance. Both still have feelings for each other even after seven years when Vance chose to end their relationship. Noella having a privileged life finished law school, and went on to be a successful judge. Framed for the murders of innocent women, Vance was forced to leave the police force. He did start his own Private Investigation company in hopes ...more
No one had any clue as to why Noella was being targeted and being shot at in her home and on the street. Of course she was a judge and had put people away, but she couldn't imagine what case would have caused someone to want her dead.
Now that Vance was hired as her bodyguard, he and Noella were working tog ...more
It got worse though - there was also an unnec ...more
I liked it. Did read it in one session. Did not guess who the bad guy really. Okay I did but I was thinking or him or he is guilty.
Noella Peterson not sure what to do. She feels threatened but not overtly. She knows she is being followed. She hope no one sees her go into the P.I. office.
Vance Mills detective office. Vance is old boyfriend from law school that had to drop out after his fathers death. He joined the police force till last year when she got him kicked off. ...more
The idea that each did what they thought best for the other, while appearing to hurt or betray the one they loved (for their own good) is too true to life to not affect the reader. I’ve personally witnessed such things in real life, sadly ...more
Vance and Noella had a love affair years ago in law school. Vance walked away from Noella not because he no longer loved her, but because he loved her so much he was trying to protect her.
Noella is now a judge and is suddenly having death threats and assassination attempts against her. She has hired Vance to be her bodyguard. Vance use to be on the police force b ...more
The beginning is a little clunky in places though once the book gets going it gets better. It seems that the author may have a 'tick' though - I've never heard anyone say a character 'did such' or 'thought such' or 'went to such' but this particular phrasing appears all the way through and after the first couple it d ...more
Doing 'what's best' for someone has a habit of coming back and biting you, usually when least expected. However, when Noella needed Vance, he was there for her. I liked the way the 'good' guys won, as did the love Noella and Vance had ...more
Might be a few grammatical errors and spelling errors, but only about 4 throughout the book. And Amazon does let you know when a revision is available for you to download.
Editing is not good. Many words were wrong (amour instead of armor), some phrases were wrong "lean backward" instead of bend over backward, incorrect verb tense often and singular instead of plural too many times (for example: one of her leg or pair of pant.) Plot was good, mystery was good, character development was good. If this was edited it would be great, but unfortunately it was not.
