I'm dangerously attracted to the man I was hired to keep safe.

As an ex-military private security guard, I know how to be in constantly close proximity with someone while remaining professional and reserved. But my training and experience falls apart once I meet my newest client, Gibson Hughes.

"Gib" isn't what I was expecting after his uncle hired me to protect a rock

Couldn’t get into it. Too many typos/misused words. Seemed very juvenile.

i read this book as part of an arc program. This is the fourth book in the Baytown Boys series. In this book, Gib is the lead singer of a rock band that is going through changes. Two members of the band are leaving to form their own band and Gib wishes them well, but he is facing pressure from his uncle Brian who is also his manager. Gib has also been getting threatening e-mails from a fan and Brian thinks it is time to hire a bodyguard for Gib. Hunter is a former military man who is now working ...more

Music, harassment and manipulation
I like the romances of Ian Finn: they are always well written and allow to address a point in romantic relationships sometimes more complicated for homosexuals, especially in this one, the hesitations to approach someone by not knowing his sexual orientation. Moreover this story is this time more complex because of the threats that the hero, an important singer, Gibson, receives, which become more and more aggressive, to the point that he has to hire a

This is a wonderful slow-burn MM romance & it was a pleasure to read. The plot is well-written & entertaining with some unexpected events, the unique characters are quite complex with realistic & believable flaws.
There is: a ex-military private security guard is hired for protection (Hunter Rhodes), a male rock-star/musician needing protection (Gibson Hughes aka Gib), his apparently caring uncle (Brian), a caring friend (Ashton), mystery, twists & turns, intrigue, suspense,

Just okay. I was expecting more.

I really like at least one of the guys in my mm stories to be an alpha which didn't happen with this book. Also I didn't feel Hunter acted like a real bodyguard. So many situations were wishy-washy, or insecure, or I don't know, hinky and unprofessional at best. I wouldn't hire him that's for sure, especially with how at the end he's gossiping about his latest client? Really?!? And I always want a good descriptive epilogue, but this one just went on, and on, and

I love this series. The stories are so heartwarming. This one completely adds to that. Hunter and Gib seem to have little in common and yet the author finds a way to bring them together. The way Hunter is so protective and Gib so oblivious to things seem to add to their attraction. I like that Gib as an artist had to feel before he could create. I enjoyed the way Hunter could also be strong and shy. I was surprised at the stalker or what made up the stalker. Again it pointed out Gib’s ability to ...more

2.5 stars. I was looking forward to this book in the series after reading its premise about a bodyguard and lead singer in a band falling in love. However, neither character was that strong or interesting, and I was distracted by several typos or wrong words. The entire series needs a better editor, but mistakes seemed especially bothersome in this book. Stocker plot seemed contrived, and I just didn’t really care about these characters that much.

Great read

Because you protected me was fun entertaining and intriguing. The book is a who done it story about a rock star and a stalker. Gibson is the front man for Silver Fire rock group. When he begins getting disturbing emails his uncle and business manger Brian hires a bodyguard. Hunter is ex military bodyguard, he good at his job and takes guarding Gibson seriously. When the threats escalate it’s up to Hunter to track down the stalker.

Typical Ian Finn!

I am a fan, which means that I am definitely partial to this particular writer. He's on my list. I regret that it took me so long to read this particular novel. It was so very delicious; it was romantic, had hot sex, and an awesome storyline. Thank You for sharing this story with us, Ian. Highly recommended to only mature readers.

Hunter and Gib story

This is so good Hunter was hired to be Gibs bodyguard because he had a stalker ..... There is more to the story and I thought it was the uncle but there is a twist in the story that will shock you..... I loved that all the friends from Baytown was in it ..... I recommend reading this book and The other three .......

I loved this story. Gib and Hunter were great together, and had amazing chemistry. Both were adorable with their initial attraction, then wondering if it was mutual. Definitely a favorite from this author.

Rock Star And Bodyguard

Hunter interviews to be the bodyguard for a singer, songwriter and band leader. The sparks fly and the action heats up. Erotic.

Ok read

Slow start but it picks up. It has twists and drama. Gib was annoying and juvenile. Hunter was a bit childish. I felt nothing for these characters.

This book was not edited after the 15th chapter. So many mistakes. I love the series, but there are tons of changes to each character throughout. I struggled to finish this book.
