4.5 stars

Remy Blake is a male/female author duo that I just recently discovered. I knew that Jacob Chance was the male author involved, and I wanted to try his writing, so I thought this quick read would be the perfect opportunity to do that. Guardian is a forbidden romance, but don’t worry if that really isn’t your thing. The story didn’t feel that taboo to me, and there is absolutely no kink involved. It's one of the best short stories that I have ever read in the romance genre. I usually find

Guardian was quite good even if it is a cliché trope. For a novella, these authors did a great job creating a storyline that felt organic in a small number of pages. And admittedly I felt amused reading this, in a good way.

With the news that his best friend has passed, Brock doesn’t even have time to mourn. He is shocked that his friend has left him custody of his daughter. Expecting a young girl, he receives a Lolita incarnate.

4.5 Stars to Guardian by author duo Remy Blake.
Published: March 30, 2017
Read: March 29, 2017
POV: First-person dual
Genres: Erotic Romance, Older man/Younger woman

Guardian was a super short, sexy read. At first, after reading the blurb, I made the assumption that the trope of this book was probably 'daddy' kink." It was not. The premise is strictly older man/younger woman. The hero, Brock, was fifteen years older than the heroine, Ivy. That said, I adored this book and was not at all cre

How to describe this book… Well, in a phrase:

Filled to bursting with all the things that make your toes curl over.
Unrelenting in its sexual tension.
Clammy (hey, it’s better than moist) is what it will make your… hands.
Kinky enough to make you clutch your pearls.
Sweetness perfectly mixed with tangible passion.
A sassy h and a brash H you simply have to meet.
Filthy words mixed into poignant sentences that make your heart clench.
Entertaining, exciting and (semi-)taboo.
Beautifully written from the f

Quick and hot

If you're looking for instalove that could be considered sort of taboo, then this is it.

When an old friend Brock had lost contact with passes, he is left as the guardian of his old friends daughter. He's reluctant, but takes on the task anyway. He's expecting a young girl, but what he gets isn't that. Haha. Brock is Ivy's guardian, but he can't deny the attraction that's there even though he'd never act on it. Ivy just wants to get Brock out of her life as quickly as possibly. I won

Another great read from the new writing duo that is Remy Blake.

While it's a short & steamy read, I love that this duo pack in plenty of background & plot. The characters actually have some depth, which means you know enough about them & their motivations to be able to engage with them early in the read.

Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of sparks & steam... Brock & Ivy certainly bring the heat... but it's more than just a quick & dirty smut-filled read.

Another short story, after reading Tempt I was curious to read more by this duo. Guardian is another insta lust/love short story. Brock and Ivy are pleasant characters, the sex between them is steamy and the love developing between them is an added bonus to this warm story. These stories are nice interludes among series or if you want a quick love fix and guaranteed HEA.

Guardian is the first book I have read by this writing duo and definitely not the last. It was exactly what I was looking for, short and sweet. Brock and Ivy had great chemistry. Their first interaction was very funny and I enjoyed the tension that quickly became banter. If you don't like Insta-Everything you may want to skip this one but if the Insta's don't bother you this one was good.

Nothing more to add.

This duo has done it again and have written another amazing story. Right from the beginning my attention is captured and I'm drawn into the storyline about how Brock, a 35 year old single officer is now becoming the guardian of his late friends daughter Ivy who is 18. The attraction is there without a doubt but when they both try to fight it and argue instead of embracing their feeling I found myself laughing with the things Ivy comes up with to rile Brock up. This is a quick read but oh so good ...more

I really enjoyed this story, I had things to do today but FUCK THOSE!!!!

I just had to finish this story today XD

It is so intriguing and so realistic! Brock didn't act like an alpha male and just went for Ivy.

I loved how they actually genuinely try to be friends and stay away from each other and I think that's a really great buildup! <3

Ivy was gonna follow her dream and I admired her for that and not just gave up everything to be with her man... :)

I loved them together....they were fire and gas

ARC of Guardian by Remy Blake was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is my second book that I have read by Remy Blake and I wasn't let down, this male and female writing duo brought their A game on this one. I absolutely loved the back and forth struggle between Brock and Ivy. It was super interesting and addicting. Their dynamic and chemistry was off the charts. I was sucked in from the first page. I couldn't stop until I had reached the end. I'm always a pushover f

DIRTY KNEES REVIEWS: Guardian by Remy Blake 5 Knees!
I don't purposely go to taboo books cause it's not my go to genre. Knowing half of this duo I will read everything he puts out but holy man this one was good!
It has laugh out loud humour, INTENSE heat and believe it or not vulnerability that truly almost had me in tears.
I'm sad it didn't go further but that's what you get with novellas. If there is ever a break in scheduling Remy Blake I think you need to make this one a full story. OR Brock n

Guardian by Remy Blake is an easy flowing story to follow. It's sexy, hot and the storyline is refreshing.

Brock's life is flipped upside down when he discovers that his best friend passed away and left his daughter, Ivy in his care..Little did he know that Ivy isn't so little but is a sassy, sexy teenager...
From the moment they meet their attraction is undeniable. Sexual tension overloaded with trying to deny their feelings for each other leads to some steamy nights..

Patricia Maia (The Bookery Review)
Romantic and erotic, Guardian might be considered taboo for the age difference between the characters, but only for that.

I enjoyed this short story. The insta-love is pretty predictable but there's a whole emotional side to it, so you see the relationship and the feelings evolving.
Brock is pretty hot! And sexy! And a detective ;) and Ivy is very mature for her age as well as pretty sassy what gives a nice touch to the story.
I loved the romantic side of Brock, a lot!

I am quickly becoming a HUGE fan of this duo! I love the way this duo has you worried about the way you will perceive this book but once you have read the book you are so turned on that nothing matters! Once I started reading I was a little concerned about the direction this book could go but BOY was I so wrong and I am beyond thrilled I read this book!

Brock is this delicious police detective who just found out some terrible news about a friend of his and his world is going to be completely rock

Guardian by Remy Blake is a quick, sexy, taboo read. This duo definitely can write.

Ivy is a young woman who has lost her father and is being sent to live with his best friend Brock. A man she has never met or knows anything about. Ivy has no say in the matter her father has left guardianship to Brock. I loved Ivy she's beautiful, full of attitude, and sass, she's not afraid to use those traits to her advantage. Poor Brock he has no idea what he's getting himself into.

Guardian by Remy Blake was a sexy read that I devoured in one sitting.

Ivy is a sassy young woman whose father just passed away and is being forced to live with his best friend Brock. The chemistry between them is instantaneous, but they keep there distance all while trying to get under each other's skin. But when the sexual tension finally burst it leads to a very hot night. Only problem Ivy has her sights set on traveling the world and falling in love with Brock is not an option. So when her f
