NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Lori Foster returns with the second installment in her explosive new series featuring sexy bodyguards who’ll do anything to protect the ones they love.
Playing it safe has never felt so dangerous…
Justice Wallington knows how to harness his strength and intimidating size—skills 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 life—going 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…

Justice has had a few clients but this is his first real bodyguard job babysitting a little rich girl. How hard can it be? And why is she so sheltered? Fallon seems to be very guarded and secretive. Even with Justice’s easy going manner, she doesn’t seem very will to confide in him. As they pretend to be in a relationship to make his protecting her easier, slowly it seems they are growing closer to developing a real one. Meanwhile, Fallon appears to really be in danger and Justice needs to figure out who is behind it and why.
Crazy how such a simple touch from her affected him.
The kiss was a little wild in ways he hadn’t known were possible. He knew good old chemistry, but this was something else.
From a kiss.
Because of Fallon.
I just adore Justice’s sense of humor, family and pretty much everything about him. Fallon deserved a diamond in the rough like him. This bodyguard story definitely had some twists thrown in there that had me guessing what was going on. Tricky, tricky. But I enjoyed having my MMA fighter family join in and watched how Silver is luring them in…one by one. Besides my favorite fighter, Armie, I think Justice will hold a close second place in my heart. That guy has such a level head and great personality. I love pretty much every single thing about this series and the guys I can’t wait to see who the next bodyguard will be!
I can’t think of another series that has so many alpha males running around kicking bad guy butts and just hanging out and being there for each other. It always makes me smile to read about them cheering for each other during their MMA fights or protecting each other’s families. I’m sure if they were moving, they’d all be over picking up the couch or refrigerator. Those are the type of friends you want for life.
It took Fallon a few seconds more to get her feet moving, then she darted to the closet with new excitement. Shoot, even having a bodyguard would be an adventure when the bodyguard looked like him.
She stepped into her flat-heeled shoes, found a cardigan to pull on over her top and chose a scarf to drape around her neck. She didn’t particularly like the outfit, but no way would she make him wait while she went through her wardrobe.
After one last fluff of her brown hair and a quick swipe of gloss over her lips, Fallon squared her shoulders, filled her lungs with a fortifying breath for courage and ventured forth.
The second she stepped out, she heard his deep voice and paused to listen.
“No need to worry. I’ll cover her.”
Her father choked, turned it into a cough, and said with authority, “She is not to be alone. Not for a single second.”
“Promise I’ll stick real close.”
Alarmed, her father corrected, “But not too close.”
“Just close enough, then.”
“No one is to get too cozy with her either.”
“No cozy shenanigans,” he said. “Got it.”
“She’s naive and doesn’t understand that thugs—” here her father paused for effect, his narrowed gaze on the man “—might try to use her to get to her wealth.”
“Yeah? That’s happened before?”
“Well…no.” Her father harrumphed in that familiar way that showed his annoyance. “But it’s a very real concern.”
