Bodyguard Adam Freeman draws what everyone else thinks is the short straw at the convention for a procedural cop show - as bodyguard to TV actor Logan Brady. Or as the Internet has labelled him, Logan 'Sex God' Brady.

Logan is taking part in a convention at a London Hotel for his show 'Night Cop' and someone is threatening his life.

Fandom took a beating on this one. ;)

Nice characters here with decent chemistry but nothing that really stuck out for me. Bit of an odd red herring stalker storyline (view spoiler)

I'm thinking the second in the series will be Kyle and Ross. I'll be curious to read about how they work things out.

Loved it! I absolutely adored closeted Vampire/Cop actor Lucas from the moment he was introduced. Just the sweetest thing you ever did want to meet. It took me a bit longer to warm up to cranky bodyguard Adam, but once I did, I fell pretty hard. These two were a perfect M/M romance novel match. And the epilogue was the biggest, most delicious cherry on top of this fabulous sundae. Yummy, yummy, yummy! This one is on my favorites shelf and I look forward to forgetting enough of it so I can read i ...more

Logan is a star, he's an actor and has a stalker or twelve, since the threats have gotten more concrete and after a violent incident a British bodyguard is hired for the convention he and his fellow actors are attending.
Adam is assigned the case and there is an immediate attraction but and I am happy to say they don't really have full on sex till almost the very end of the story.
The 'mystery' of the stalker was pretty clear early on, but I don't think it was meant to be a big who-done it.

I liked the idea of the plot. An US actor received recently several threats. When he participates on a convention in the UK, he falls in love with the bodyguard his management hired to protect him.

Unfortunately there's no depth. I didn't feel the connection between the MCs, the romance was just flat. And their behavior after the case was solved was really strange. I mean, according to the plot they were in love, but even so they spent their time together, they seemed distant.

This is a light read with some minor suspense. Relatively short but it have sufficient plot development that feels like a full length story to me.

Adam had been tasked with a ten day assignments to guard an American celebrity during a convention. There isn't a lot of backstory to Adam beside a mentioned to his career as ex-cop. I didn't even get to know why he left that job. Adam is a pretty upstanding guy and openly gay.

Logan had been in the limelight since his teenage years as a child star. He

There is a soap opera convention coming to London from Los Angeles and the fans are going wild. Maybe even crazy. Bodyguard Adam Freeman draws the duty of guarding Logan Brady, one of the stars of the paranormal series. Logan has been a television personality since he was fifteen and now at thirty has had five very successful years on the soap "NightCop". Logan has been receiving death threats which is why Bodyguards, Inc. and Adam a

4.5 rounded up.

Another typical R.J. Scott book including everything I love such as danger, deception, drama, and hot man lovin'.

Some good stuff was here like extremely hot sex scenes. I found it delightfully funny that the MC thinks American accents are sexy. That's a first! Matt Bomer, one of my all-time favorite heartthrobs is spoken of admiringly. The main female character rocked.

This was...ok.

I mean, the story of a bodyguard to a closeted Hollywood star certainly has been done before...right? It seems it must have because this one read a bit generic to me.

Still, it was kinda fun, kinda sweet, kinda sexy, and kinda suspenseful.

I would've like it more if there was so much 'telling'. Bogged down.

But, it was fine and fairly enjoyable to read. I'll probably even move on in the series.

This book is light, typical bodyguard / famous story.
So dont search for anything more, but whats offering is nice! I liked it! (maybe too fast for my taste)

The action place is a fan convention and image is hilarious but pretty accurate xD.

I am a huge R.J. fan. I love most of her books and this one was no exception. This is a very sweet and kind of cheesy story. There isn't so much in what you would call angst. It had some "drama" and even that was easy and wouldn't leave you pulling your hair out. That was something I did enjoy about this, even though it was over the top in some ways that's my type of read.

Adam and Logan were amazing MC's. I loved the instant attraction and the not exactly slow build, but the way it was written t

This was such a good book. It was full of those good Feelz and lots of love, with some mystery and action -- just perfection. Logan, he is a sweetheart. Adam, he tried to stay just as Logan's body guard but he couldn't avoid temptation. Those two together were just awesome! Loved the story. Loved the setting.

Given the recent release of the second book in this series The Ex Factor, I figured I'd better read this one - and what a treat - two great books to read in a row!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story with its combination of sexy bodyguard and television star. Adam is an ex-cop who's not looking forward to having to watch over pretty-boy, Logan, when he visits London to attend a fan convention for his vampire television show. Logan has stalker. It sounds a fairly standard plot but it had many things g

Logan has received threats and was involved in a near miss ‘hit and run’ it’s Adam’s responsibility to ensure Logan’s safety on U.K. soil, but Adam has to fight his attraction for the closeted TV star. Logan is freaked out by the threats on top of his own personal con

Won't go into a huge amount of detail for this one as others have already done so, and very well IMHO.

I really enjoyed the story and the MC's. Woohoo, chuffed to bits that RJ is doing another series to go with 'Sanctuary' and joy of joys, a new one of those is coming out 'Worlds Collide' which I will def. download when it's available (any chance you can let us know when that will be RJ?)

Yes, the title leaves much to be wanted. Yes, the grammar was quite bad at times. Nonetheless, I find myself giving it 5 stars as opposed to the 4 I was originally going to. Also, I'm eating cookies, so I'm in a good mood right now. *shrugs. Might have something to do with it.

However, this book was still surprisingly good. The way the author worked the individual elements was interesting and engaging without being overly blatant or cheesy.

While some of the story line brought back memories of The Bodyguard (of Kevin Costner fame), this story about Logan, an actor being stalked, and Adam, his ex-cop bodyguard, has definitely got a dynamic all its own. And not just because the two main characters are gay men, but because the mysterious stalker is very much up to date with today's job description of a creepy fan who lost touch with reality. And between the twists and turns of the whodunit (or rather the who-is-about-to-do-it) and the ...more

This was enjoyable enough— a light read. But I didn’t really cozy up to either character much.

Logan is the smexy Hollywood star who’s famous for his TV role as a vampire cop (reminded me of Alex O’Loughlin in the TV show, Moonlight) and someone is stalking him and sending him crazy fan mail. Things are escalating and Adam is hired to be Logan’s bodyguard while he’s at a convention in England.

I think the issue for me is when someone is supposed to be acting professionally (like guarding someone

Adam Freeman is a British bodyguard assigned to protect American actor Logan Brady when he attends a UK convention for his paranormal drama Night Cop. Logan it turns out is being stalked, receiving letters which turned into death threats. Logan is actually gay, and closeted. Sparks fly immediately between the two men and as hard as Adam tries to keep a professional distance things heat up very quickly.

It's so nice to read books based in the UK so I was really looking forward to this and it doesn

This was such a cute little read! Sweet, sexy, and pretty much everything you'd expect from an RJ Scott novel. She is one of my favourite M/M authors and so far has never disappointed me - she writes great romance and always leaves me smiling. Bodyguard to a Sex God was definitely no exception, and the ENDING! So adorable! I'd love a story for Ross and Kyle. Pretty please? ;)

This story is crazy good. Not only are the main characters strongly written so are the sub characters. This was a fun, lite read with a tad bit of angst at one point (wg) Oh just read the story. It's a must read. It has sexy men,hysterical um people, great banter between characters, what more do you want? Oh yeah well there's that too :-)

I liked the whole convention thing, because hey so many years in SPN fandom ain't for nothing ))) I liked Logan and Adam, but I think these two could use maybe more time together. I think I'd trade Stacia and Bryan storyline for additional Logan/Adam scenes anytime ))

An enjoyable read. Adam has to be a bodyguard to Logan during a convention in the UK where Logan is being stalked.
Adam tries to keep his distance but they eventually get together. They do take it slow and when Logan returns to the US with Adam they spend a few days together.
Nice because they didnt rush into anything, well in a much as you can in a 132 page book.
I will continue to read this series.

A cotton candy read. Nice while it lasts, forgotten the second it's over. No real depth. Characters are fine. The plot is decent. Just no oomph.

Sweet, fairly low-angst story about a bodyguard (Adam) who is set to guard actor (Logan) at a London convention. Adam is out, while Logan is in the closet. Logan's recently received several death threats, so he needs a bodyguard. The story was definitely hampered by the length, but there was a nice epilogue.

I can’t get enough of this author at the moment!
The only good point about Adam Freemans latest assignment as a bodyguard is the handsome face with the stunning eyes staring back at him as he reads through the information on his latest client. This is the worst kind of job in the business! Show business people full of ego and attitude that demand their every whim be met. Worse still it is to take place at a convention, full of screaming fans that he imagi

That was wonderful. Well, it's cliche - the bodyguard hooking up with his protected actor. But the big plus, for me, the slow proceeding of romance here.

In the beginning, when it was mentioned it'd be a ten-day contract, I thought /cue eye-roll/ "okay, then we'd expect to see insta-attraction, insta-love, and whatnots." It was all that, yes. And more. Yes, the both of them got attracted on first sight (both considered the other eye-candy). Yes, there's masturbation scene on the... hold on, seco
