Storm Ellison is the sexiest man on two legs. The gorgeous young star of Trapped on an Island, the hottest reality show on television, is instantly recognizable the moment he leaves his palatial mansion. Paparazzi follow him everywhere, leaving him no peace or privacy, selling his pictures to the tabloids, and cementing his reputation in the press as a slutty gay playboy. As Storm prepares to sign his first major movie deal, his manager decides he needs protection. What he doesn't expect, is to be attracted to the cold bastard who's now running his life.
Balthazar Grant, freelance bodyguard, is a huge, handsome, rough and ready former marine, trained by the best, and willing to step between Storm and anyone stupid enough to come at him. Always stoic and serious, Taz lends a deadly presence to Storm's entourage whenever he ventures out in public. Storm doesn't want a bodyguard, much less one who won't let him live his fast and loose lifestyle with impunity, and he's certainly not one to be dictated to by an overconfident marine who has opinions about everything, including who he should hook-up with.
When a deadly threat hits Storm's world, he's suddenly living his own reality show, only this one has an outcome which doesn't involve being voted off an island. Will Storm wake up before it's too late and will Taz be able to fight his attraction to the handsome young superstar while trying to convince him he's in very real danger? The pair will soon learn that reality is stranger than fiction.

A sweet love story
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher, and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was not given the opportunity to review a print version, so I have no basis for comparison.
This story has a good story line, a sweet love story, and a decent plot. The MCs are easy to like, and there are very few secondary characters. There is a bit of action toward the beginning of the book, but then the actual "story line/plot" doesn't pick back up until toward the end. Now, of course there is reference to what is going on throughout the book, but the bulk of the story is devoted to the MC's rapidly developing romance. The thing that stood out for me with this book was that it had me laughing out loud several times, and I don't find that as often as I might like.
I found the references to author/director G. A. Hauser great, and she even had a bit part in the story.
Jonathan Young does really well with the characters' voices. The secondary characters that have accents seemed a bit strained in places, but overall, the conversations were well done. The only comment I have is that throughout the story when it was not conversation, he seemed to make everything sound breathy/erotic. There were times when it sounded normal, and that was really nice. I know this was a steamy book, and the love scenes were well done, but I would have enjoyed the story more if much of the reading didn't sound like a love scene.
I probably would have read it in one sitting if I had had the time. It did not seem to be an extremely long book. But, it took a while to listen to. I did listen to it in a couple of days, so it kept my attention once I got into the story.
