Martial arts expert Lewis is the kind of bodyguard who slips under most people’s radar. Quiet, reserved, but constantly on alert, he’ll do his job, keep his charges safe, then relax by reading Shakespeare in his spare time.

When he’s given a case involving a spoiled celebrity singer, Lewis isn’t all that impressed. The job is nothing but babysitting a pretty boy, and he’s u

Jan 20, 2019 rated it it was amazing
I've enjoyed every one of the books in this series but this one is really special as it has two loves running through it, not just Alex and Lewis' but also the love of heritage and the land under your feet.

Lewis' island home is as much a character as his brother and sister, as the rest of the people who live on the tiny Inner Hebrides island.

I'm also a sucker for Scots Gaelic, I learned to speak it when I spent hundreds of hours in some of the very locations this book is set in and I know the pe

Kissing Alex isn’t very high on the eroticism scale so if you’re looking for loads of sexy times and blistering passion you won’t find it here. But what you will find is loads of sensuality befitting this book’s title.

Alex and Lewis were both great characters. Alex is not what he seems on the outside but rather incredibly sweet and loving while Lewis is fiercely protective and loyal. Lewis is not pleased about his new babysitting duty infringing on his holiday plans but he soon realises that Al

One of my favorites of the series!!! 4.25 *

Really romantic! Charming characters and the island set-up very well described :)

Alex was in one of the most famous boy bands of the moment when all go wrong! Someone makes public a sex-tape with Roman. He didn’t know much about him… Roman’s family were some type of mafia so he was going to declare against them but this, put Alex in danger.

So Lewis was the one from Bodyguards Inc. to need to look after Alex and what’s better than get him away to his sma

Book six in the Bodyguards Inc. series is all about the kissing – and Alex and Lewis of course who are doing the kissing.

This book struck a chord with me as it was based on an Island and I have lived on an Island all my life albeit not one quite as small as Stoirmeil. I could understand the need Lewis had to move away and experience the bigger world that runs right alongside the feeling of ‘coming home’ when he returns. I could also understand the slight awe that

This installment of the Bodyguards Series by RJ Scott was a fun, interesting addition. There was not so much involvement that it could not be read as a standalone, but when it's RJ Scott, why would you want to miss the stories that came before?

Alex is part of a boy band and not the celebrity diva you'd expect. Lewis is the bodyguard who is tasked with keeping Alex safe until a rather large criminal issue is resolved. Both the MCs are likable and going with them on their voyage of getting to know

Kissing Alex is the 6th book in the Bodyguards Inc Series but can be read as a standalone. Alex is a singer who’s found himself being targeted by the Russian mob and Lewis is the badass bodyguard assigned to protect him. Lewis reluctantly took on the case, as he was about to head away for a vacation to his home island of Stormeil, but agreed to take Alex with him. In that remote place, where Lewis is the Lord of the Island, Alex and Lewis become attracted to each other and eventuall
"Have you ever kissed someone, and it feels like home, and passion, and possibly all at once? The kind of kiss that has you pushing over the edge of something vital and important."

Kissing Alex is a fun standalone read (#6 from the Bodyguards Inc series) that did a fantastic balancing act between sweetness and a bit of bite. Sometimes I just want an undemanding escapist read to sweep me up into the romance and go with the flow, but this also has dollop of witty exchanges in private observatio

Kissing Alex is a wonderful addition to the Bodyguards, Inc. (can we possibly be six books on in this exciting series?). The characters, the locations, the story line, all combine to give the reader a romance to thoroughly enjoy.
Alex is a band member who is out as a gay man but he doesn’t advertise it. Then a video of him having sex with a man who has unsavory connections is released and his carefully honed reputation goes all wrong. Alex feels powerless to stop the sketchy stories that are swi

This is the sixth in a series, but I have to admit it is the first that I have read - something I plan on remedying very soon. It is a well written, has interesting plots / subplots and deliciously hot.

I spent a wonderful summer up in the Hebrides, and this book describes brilliantly the beauty and the remoteness of that part of the world. The need to keep communities going and yet the desire to also see outside the are

I always love it when a book, whether in a series or a stand alone, can make me feel like I have known the characters for a long time. The chemistry not only with the two main, Lewis and Alex but all the supporting characters was woven so seamlessly together. I loved how Lewis and Alex flirted a bit before going for the lust. The support Lewis's family and teammates gave him was great to see. Alex was lovable from the get go. You could see his vulnerability pretty quickly and we needed to see th ...more

Kissing Alex is the 6th book in RJ Scott's Bodyguards Inc series and can be read as a stand alone. I have not read the previous books.

This is a lovely, relaxing read that didn't require too much thought from me. Luke and Alex made a nice couple but the story was formulaic and easily forgotten. My favourite thing about the story is the setting on the island off the cost of Britain which is beautiful and made me want to go on

This one is definitely one of my favorites in the Bodyguards Inc. series. I loved the descriptive writing in the setting, the characters, and the romance. Very sensual and sexy but not sexed up, if that makes sense.

And mmmm kissing. Kissing is always good, and when you can write that so steamy hot? Perfection!

But really, I loved Alex and Lewis, how they came to care for each other so quickly and naturally. And I loved the people on Lewis' island, his sister especially.

Note: I have no relationship to the author. I bought this novel with my own money. I was NOT asked to review, but I'm doing it anyway.

I was enamored from the beginning by the character profiles in the blurb. A little "unlikely hero" mixed with "misunderstood bad boy". Put it together with the "Bodyguards Inc." series and there's not much that can go wrong.

However (I hate to say this...) My expectations completely threw me off for the first few chapters because here I'm thinking Lewis is this lit

***A Lovely Addition to the Series!***

Despite Alex’s involvement in a couple of the other books, this is truly a standalone. Who he is and what he does is explained clearly, and you won’t miss anything if you are picking up the series here. That said - GO READ THEM ALL!!! You won’t regret it!

This is the sixth book in this series, and I’ve loved some, liked some, and not cared for some - and this one definitely falls in the *loves* column! Lewis is this hunky adorable braniac who happens to be th

I love the Bodyguards Inc. series and this is the sixth book, although it can be read as a standalone.

Lewis yearns for his annual month off his bodyguard job to spend on his beloved Scottish island. However, Kyle, his boss asks him to take on a job and combine his stay on the island. Babysitting a boy band singer? As much as Lewis rejects the idea, the monetary gain that he needs to support his island is too good to miss. It is then he finds himself escorting the spoilt and angry young man acros

First let me say that although this book is # 6 in a series it can be read as a standalone. I definitely plan to go back and work my way through the series after reading this one. RJ Scott did a great job of explaining the other characters but I did feel like I was missing information a few times as I read, though nothing pertinent to this particular story.

You want to know the worst part of this book?? That it ended and I have to wait a long time for the next book!!! I have loved this series so much.

In this book, we see Alex again (from book 2-he was in the music competition with Daniel, and was the friend who got Daniel help from Ben). It was nice to see him again, even if it was in such horrible circumstances.

Kissing Alex is book #6 from the Bodyguard Inc. Series. I haven’t read the other 5 books and I didn’t have any problems understanding, so yes it can be read as a standalone. Although I must say it did leave me wanting to read the other books.
If you are looking for a sweet romance with mild angst this would be a great book. The Scottish setting and the characters were descripted beautifully. Lewis is what every bodyguard should be, protective, loyal, and very in tune with the person he’s protect

Reluctant companions are surprised to discover friendship and attraction when they mix business with pleasure.

While it's clear Lewis and Alex come from radically different walks of life, the story focuses on their similarities rather than their differences. The connection between them is both physical and emotional, a perfect blend of chemistry and romance.

Set on a remote island, the rich history of the Scottish people is subtly integrated into the story and adds a layer of authenticity to the g

4.5 Stars really. I think this is the best book of the series. A little better than Ben and Daniels story, just not quite as good as 5 stars for me. But I really enjoyed it. It was a nice slow burn and the island setting in Scotland was gorgeous. And we even got a kilt scene! I liked Alex's character, he wasn't in the boy band just for fame and fortune, but for music and dance. You could sense his frustration as he chafed at restrictions still placed on him for being gay.

The new installment of RJ Scott’s Bodyguard Inc series is pretty fabulous. Boy Band member Alex is in a jam. Lewis, a Bodyguard and about to take his month long vacation, has to make it all better. Now, one thing I’ve noticed about Bodyguard Inc is if you’re lonely and looking for a soulmate hire one of their guys or girls and you’ll live happily ever after.

3.5 stars. M/M. Alex is a boy band member (in his 20's) being threatened by the Russian Mafia and Lewis, his hired bodyguard who grumbles but takes Alex along with him for his normally alone one month vacation to a sparsley populated Scottish Island that Lewis grew up on and is now Laird (Lord) of. Lewis is using the exorbitant amount of money Alex's production company is paying for his bodyguard duties to help the island he loves with needed repairs and such.

Alex and Lewis kiss, and kiss a lot!

Lewis is unhappy that his holiday time is interrupted by having to look after a spoiled pop star who is in danger.
He thinks Alex is the stereotypical pop star but he couldn't be more wrong.

Alex is having a hard time of it, it's scandal he doesn't need and to top it off he is now in danger and needs protection.

the book is set on a Scottish island where Lewis' family lives.

I've loved this series from the start, and Kissing Alex is no exception to that. The story runs smooth and detailed in a way that fits RJ's style to a tee. I like how she made Alex the opposite of normal pop-star personalities and gave him much more depth. Of course there are twists and turns while Lewis falls in love with Alex. I loved how there wasn't too much angst, just a few misunderstandings and preconceptions that are handled in a very up front way which I really enjoyed.

I really enjoyed this installment of Bodyguards! Lewis and Alex are awesome main characters. And the supporting characters of Marnie and Davey were well done also.
I really didn't get the whole Roman thing but still a good story with a lot more going for it than sex!
3.5 Stars. More than "Liked it" but I don't think I can justify 4 Stars. I really liked Alex but there are better stories in the series. Still I will continue the series when the next book about Roman comes out.
