Her Reluctant Bodyguard is a clean (non-pornographic), contemporary romantic suspense novel whose male lead is an Italian-American who is more Italian than American, having spent only his summers growing up in The States. Jamison Constanzo is a bodyguard to a major British pop-star. Part of the novel's story takes place in and around Rome, Italy.
That is not the whole reason I purchased this e-book to read and review here. I was also impressed by the author's sample chapters. They were clean, well-written, well-formatted, and engaging. I was not disappointed when I read the book! It is very readable, flowing nicely, full of fun and romantic interactions between the leads, Jamison and Alexa, a U.S. American woman who has been hired to co-write the pop-star's autobiography.
In this entertaining novel we gets lots of clean, romantic interaction between Alexa and Jamison. The dangerous-fan story builds to an exciting finish, then the novel ends with romance. Please know that you don't have to be religious to like this book or the characters, so don't be put off if you see the book called a "Christian Romance". The author compares her protagonists' repartee to Hepburn and Tracy, but I found it more reminiscent of Gable and Colbert in the film It Happened One Night.
