Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous

Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating sizeskills he put to good use first in the MMA cage and now as a bodyguard at the Body Armor agency. But no opponent has ever left him feeling as off balance as his new client, heiress Fallon Wade. Far from a spoiled princess, she’s sweet and intriguingly innocent. It’s a risk-free assignment, until he’s required to fake a relationship with her in order to blend in.

Sheltered from the world after a family tragedy, Fallon longs to experience lifegoing to bars, dancing, talking to strangers. Not easy with a huge, lethal-looking bodyguard shadowing her every move. Justice seems like her polar opposite, but pretending to be a couple stirs undeniable heat. And when danger strikes again, it’s not just her safety in jeopardy, but a passion that’s real, raw and absolutely against the rules”



My thoughts…

Let’s start with Fallon, have you ever seen the cute little puppy that has never seen snow? or rain and has that sort of awe moment when it first sees it?  That reminds me of Fallon, sort of timid but rearing to go and trying anything! Fallon has been sheltered most of her life partially due to her wealth status and the other half due to some unfortunate past experiences.  She has decided to get out there and experience life, however that comes with some stipulations on her parents parts.  She must have a bodyguard with her anytime she leaves the house. However Fallon has some stipulations back, he must fit in, he can’t stand out.  Whenever she finally gets a glimpse of her new bodyguard she almost looses her mind.  Justice is not your typical body guard, he doesn’t dress like one and definitly doesn’t look like one.  Now if she could only keep everything platonic between them things could go smoothly.  At first I thought Fallon’s character was going to be to soft for me, however a couple chapters in I realized she was hiding all of her bravado behind her shyness.  It all started creeping out once she got used to having Justice around. I loved how she started coming into herself more and more, some because Justice was making her braver, but mostly because she was stepping out on her own more.

Justice is a guy I have been dying to get closer to since the Ultimate series.  Then in Leese’s book it clinched it I needed to get my hands on Justice’s book immediately. One look at Justice and most people turn and head the other direction.  However underneath that hard stare and equally hard exterior is a soft fluffy teddy bear.  Justice just wants to protect everyone, which is why he decided to become a bodyguard. Justice doesn’t seem to have many layers to him he is a very up front guy but I LOVED his patience with Fallon.  He was an absolute doll with her.  Taking his time letting her experience everything in her pace, at her time.  The fact that Justice has such a hard exterior but is such an amazing man, just proves that Lori Foster writes amazing male characters.  There is a turning point scene with Tomahawk (which I won’t spoil) that proves what amazing men these MMA fighters are.

I’m not sure how Lori Foster creates such amazing books time after time.  Each book I read of hers is so fresh and so new.  I love, love, love that characters from old books come back in newer books.  Even if it’s only for a glimpse or for a whole chapter!  The MMA brother hood that was created in the Ultimate series continues on in the Bodyguard series.  The families that were created in the Undercover love series come in play during the Ultimate series as well as the SBC fighters.  It’s amazing how she creates this giant web of families that interweave and always have each others backs!

I cannot get enough of these books, and the families that are in them.  I don’t just mean the families within in each book I mean the giant web of non-blood related families that Lori Foster has created.  She shared a little image that reminded her of Justice and Fallon I couldn’t resist sharing it too!!


Thank you Lori Foster, Harlequin, and Netgalley for my advanced copy in lieu of my honest review.
