“He appeared like a white knight, unshaven, unshowered, ready to do battle for the people he loved. He exuded manliness and safety, like a king swearing to protect the realm.

It was a beautiful thing and yet, troubling. I didn’t know where my place was in his kingdom, or if I wanted a place in it at all.”

Ok, Stop Right There...Yes, it is hard not to breakout in song and sing the chorus of the Dolly Parton/ Whitney Houston theme...But Don't! This book is not your average Bodyguard deal. There are twists which start from the beginning and continue throughout.

The main theme, in my mind, is not the obvious... There is more than the watching out for the "Target" and then getting involved with said Target.

Review @ Vanilla & Spice Books





I have been a fan of CD Reiss' storytelling since her Song of Submission series. This series is a lot less angsty than SOS but not less captivating. I adored the first, Bombshell, in this series and though we always compare books to previous works and this one wasn't a five star book for me Bodyguard was still highly entertaining.

‘Bodyguard,’ is the latest STANDALONE story from the, ‘Hollywood A-list,’ series of CD Reiss. It’s everything I wanted it to be and so much more all exposed in a beautiful first-person narrative that toggles between the perspective of the hero and heroine. Full of swoon and magic, heart and soul. It captures the contemporary romance trope to absolute and stunning perfection and totally pulled me into the romance of the protagonists who both have rich, engaging histories that authentically

A perfect stand-alone contemporary romance. The right mix of angst, sexual tension, and romance. A story that brings two people together whose life isn’t perfect. A Bodyguard who never mixes business with pleasure and a choreographer whose life got derailed by her crazy ex. When these two meet, can they risk the feelings they feel or will the risk of their feelings be their undoing?

Bodyguard is a standalone and is part of the Hollywood A-List series. You can read the books out of order. I sort of enjoyed the first book. I did it on audio format so it was a different experience for me. I decided to give Bodyguard a go because it’s a single daddy book. I LOVE single parent books.

Bodyguard wasn’t bad and it wasn’t good, it was just okay for me. I think it’s because I’m not too fond of C.D. Reiss’ writing style. I can see why a lot of people love this author so this i

While "Bodyguard" can be appreciated at face value for its enticing and well developed characters, steamy romance delivering all the lovely "feels" and of course an interesting story that simply would not let me go until I finished the book....The reader can also find the difference between good writing and "inspire

Bodyguard is another one of those books that's been sitting on my TBR pile begging to be read. It features a classic trope, bodyguard and client/target, and a bit of suspense mixed in with the romance. Carter Kincaid is all business, no one knows his personal life and no one is going to get close enough to do so. Emily is choreographer to Darlene, a famous music star and her best friend.

I had started this book and then had to stop (pause) when I received a library book with a short period of time left.
I don't like starting/stopping/switching books midstream. I like to stay in the same world-until I'm finished.
I went right back to the story and continued to enjoy it.
This is first person POV alternating between Carter & Emily. (Slightly more of Emily's POV)

I love when I don’t know where a book is going to take me. Bodyguard was not at all what I was expecting. These two have so much baggage in their life. This book was all about seeing them struggle to be normal when neither of their situations were, all the while trying to act on the attraction they have for each other. This is one of those books that will make you laugh, cringe and maybe even cry a little. It was life.

Emily and Darlene have been friends since they were in 3rd grade and have always had a shared love of dancing and singing. This is what led them to LA, where Darlene is now a very successful pop star. Emily is her choreographer but tends to shy away from the limelight after an awful relationship break up with a possessive guy who has now morphed into her crazy personal stalker.

Let's be clear about something.
I call dibs on Carter.
End of.
Let me tell you why.
Fiction is about losing yourself in a story, living vicariously through characters and fitting yourself inside somehow. We want to see our characters evolve and reach new, more promising heights. We want them to suffer a little in order to appreciate the HEA that authors give them.
Sometimes, characters start out less than stellar. A bit aloof or downright insuffrerable.

If there is one thing about C.D. Reiss books, her words are unlike any other. Something about her writing style, it pulls you in from the get go. Bodyguard is no exception.

First, let me say, I love the covers of the books in this series!

Emily is the choreographer for her best friend and trying to stay out of the limelight as much as possible even though she had always dreamed of singing and dancing and being center stage. However, a past relationship with a possessive arrogant idiot has left her hiding in the background in fear.

Enter Carter Kincaid......OMG, could he have a sexier name!! I loved it!

I did not read the first book in this series (you do not need to) but I did read her other previous release, King of Code, and I really enjoyed that book. But I found myself struggling to get into the Bodyguard. And I can't pinpoint any one thing, I think it was a bunch of things for me.

I love CD Reiss' Hollywood A listers. It's a place populated by stars and everyone it takes to make us love them. Bodyguard is all about Carter, the best of the best when it comes to celebrity bodyguards, and, in a great little twist, Emily, a choreographer who could've made it as big as her best friend Darlene McKenna, a superstar singer modeled after every diva singer turned actress minus the drug use and bad behavior, turns out to be his assignment.

Bodyguard is book two in the Hollywood A-List series. However this book is a complete standalone. There is only one small mention of a character from book 1 (Bombshell). But it is completely not relevant to the story at all.

Bodyguard is an adult contemporary romance. It is my first book by this author.

The narrators are Emily and Carter (1st person POVs).

Emily is a choreographer for her best friend mega-star Darlene. Carter works as a bodyguard.
