Published by Entangled Brazen

Book 3 in the Gamble Brothers Series

He can protect her from everyone except himself.

Alana Gore is in danger. A take-no-prisoners publicist, her way with people has made her more than a few enemies over the years, but a creepy stalker is an entirely different matter. She needs a bodyguard, and the only man she can ask is not only ridiculously hot, but reputed to have taste for women that goes beyond adventurous.

Chandler Gamble has one rule: don't protect anyone you want to screw. But with Alana, he's caught between his job and his increasingly hard libido. On one hand, Alana needs his help. On the other, Chandler wants nothing more than to take the hot volcano of a woman in hand. To make her writhe in pleasure, until she's at his complete mercy.

She needs protection. He needs satisfaction. And the moment the line is crossed, all hell will break loose...


Steamy Romance Hot

Some Violence BDSM

Tempting the Bodyguard by Jennifer Armentrout, is the third and final book in her Gamble Brothers series. It features the oldest brother, security business owner Chandler Gamble, and Alana Gore, Chad's nightmare PR from the last book, who didn't leave the greatest impression on the family. But Alana is in danger from someone in her past, and she needs help. Enter Chandler, who is willing to break all his personal rules to protect her - and make her his.

I really liked this one. It was a bit more original than the past two, and was interesting, which are big points for me. It was predictable, but most romance books are. I really enjoyed the dominant aspect of this book, mostly because it wasn't like your typical dom/sub type books. Nothing overly fancy. No personal playrooms. Just good ol' dom/sub sex. And the fact that Chandler enjoyed that she wasn't submissive in all other aspects is great for me!

Chandler and Alana were likeable ... and I was especially surprised to end up liking Alana, considering her actions in the last book. It wasn't swept under the rug either. She gets that her actions were not great ... but she also points out that Chad and Bridget are only engaged because of her methods. It was nice to see a softer side to Alana. And Chandler was a great character to read. Sometimes dominant men are a turn off, but he was great! One of my favorite aspects, is Jennifer changing things up, so that Chandler, unlike his brothers, doesn't have commitment issues, but Alana did! Very refreshing!

Tempting the Bodyguard was a good conclusion to this series. While all three books are not Jennifer's greatest work to date, they were all enjoyable ... especially by time we get to this book.
