She's got his back.Hannah Brooks looks more like a kindgerten teacher than somebody who could kill you with a wine bottle opener. Or a ballpoint pen. Or a dinner napkin. But the truth is, she's an Executive Protection Agent (aka "bodyguard"), and she just got hired to protect superstar actor Jack Stapleton from his middle-aged, corgi-breeding stalker. He's got her heart.Jack Stapleton's a household name--captured by paparazzi on beaches the world over, famous for, among other things, rising out of the waves in all manner of clingy board shorts and glistening like a Roman deity. But a few years back, in the wake of a family tragedy, he dropped from the public eye and went off the grid. They've got a secret.When Jack's mom gets sick, he comes home to the family's Texas ranch to help out. Only one catch: He doesn't want his family to know about his stalker. Or the bodyguard thing. And so Hannah--against her will and her better judgment--finds herself pretending to be Jack's girlfriend as a cover. Even though her ex, like a jerk, says no one will believe it. What could possibly go wrong???Hannah hardly believes it, herself. But the more time she spends with Jack, the more real it all starts to seem. And there lies the heartbreak. Because it's easy for Hannah to protect Jack. But protecting her own, long-neglected heart? That's the hardest thing she's ever done.… (més)

I just loved everything about this. Such a nice fun read. Great characters, fun plot and believable enjoyable drama. I don't have a bad thing to say about it, which is rare for me. ( )

I loved Hannah and Jack's story! This is a fun feel good romance that leaves you wanting more and happy you read it! ( )

“The Bodyguard” synopsis drew me in with its refreshing premise but I soon came to realize it was too good to be true (like everything else in my life). The read felt juvenile, the storyline/plot was a snoozefest, the characters were awkward AF, and based on their behavior—I kept forgetting they were adults. I had to re-read the synopsis to make sure I didn’t pick up a YA/NA romance novel.

Additionally—the characters were very one-dimensional and I struggled to connect with either Hannah or Jack. As a bodyguard, Hannah did a whole lot of standing around and being walked all over by her boss, ex-boyfriend, ex-best friend, and hell—even Jack. Where was the ‘tough guy’ exterior that is supposed to come with being a bodyguard? Poor girl wasn’t born with a backbone. Honestly, I was far more intrigued by the corgi stalker than anything else.

And I can’t fail to mention that the ‘romance’ left much to be desired. This bland Wattpad wannabe Hallmark movie was altogether a waste of time but if you’re a masochist like myself—10/10 would highly recommend it! ( )

Not a unique plot, but a very well crafted version of it with interesting characters, some sympathetic, at least one a complete jerk. I had fun following them all. ( )

Hannah works as a bodyguard, and she is given an assignment to guard Jack Stapleton, a Hollywood actor. Because his mom is ill, and he doesn't want to concern his mother, he tells Hannah that she must pretend to be his girlfriend. Hannah doesn't want to do it, but has to in order to protect Jack. The dialog is quick and snappy, and at times, I laughed out loud. Naturally, the two of them are at odds with each other, but that won't do for a romance!
I really enjoyed this smart, funny, and emotional rom-com. I will be looking for more from Katherine Center! I enjoyed the audio narration, the reader was great, lots of inflection and emotion in her voice! ( )

For my grandparents, Herman and Inez Detering

You left us many gifts to carry forward, and I am thankful for all of them—most especially, these days: your hugs, your warmth and kindness, and all my memories of a childhood spent scampering around your Texas ranch. 

I miss you both—but in the best, most grateful way.

But getting dumped lasts forever. Because a person who loved you decided not to love you anymore.
Every chance you take is a choice. A choice to decide who you are.
And loving other people really does turn out, in the end, to be a genuine way of loving yourself.
