Original Review @ Naomi’s Reading Palace

Back in September 2015 I listened to half of Tempting the Bodyguard, but for some reason never got back to it. In February, I decided it was time to finish the book and did so in one day. Even though there was a good five months since I last put the book down, I was able to pick right up where I left off and enjoyed the rest of the story. It had some intense moments, but I enjoyed the growing attraction between Alana and Chandler, even though they were in denial in regards to their feelings toward one another.

Tempting the Bodyguard is the third book in the Gamble Brothers series and even though I haven’t read the previous books it was easy to pick this one up, as each book features a different brother. In this read it features the oldest brother Chandler, who has always looked out for his younger brothers and has finally found his match in Alana, his brother’s ex-publicist, who has come to him for his help after she has had threats made against her.

I liked seeing the attraction between Chandler and Alana as it grew slowly. They were both facing a serious problem, but each new threat brought them closer. Alana was afraid of getting too close to him and constantly tried to pull back, but Chandler was always there trying to keep her within his clutches. I enjoyed the intensity of the threats always being there too.

I don’t often listen to a lot of stories from the third person perspective lately, but I enjoyed how this story was told. It switched to each character, so I could get their perspective and see how they were feeling about one another. It was also the first book I listened to a book narrated by Kaleo Griffith, and I really liked how he told Chandler and Alana’s story. There was plenty of emotion in his voice and the story flowed smoothly.

Just like any book of Jennifer’s that I pick up, I was quickly swept away by her magnificent writing style. She has a way of capturing the reader so that it feels like you are right there with the characters, experiencing the danger and their emotions. I liked how I didn’t have to read the other books in the series to understand this one too. It was a fantastic read and now I want to go back and catch up on the first two books in the series.
