Publisher's Summary

From the author of the best seller of the Fantasy Football Romance series comes an exciting new series, Champions of the Heart. Book One is Guarding the Quarterback - a Miss Congeniality meets The Bodyguard romp.
Alexa Reeves: The quarterback of the NY Kings has a body to die for, and as Dean Walker's bodyguard, I'm right in the line of fire. If that's not dangerous enough, I'm posing as his girlfriend to keep close. Yet, that isn't the worst part. He says I need a makeover to pass as his arm candy. Jerk. The more time I spend with him, the more my undercover role blurs with reality, and I'll lose more than my job if I step over the line and into his bed.
Dean Walker: Let's get something straight. I didn't ask for protection, especially in the form of a female. Isn't a death threat just another day in the life of a NY quarterback? Still, the owner of the team forces me to accept a security detail led by the tiny, but tough Alexa Reeves.
But who is the real Alexa? The bodyguard, sworn to protect me, or the made-over vixen, determined to drive me crazy? As the stalker closes in, I realize I've put more than my life in her hands. Will Alexa safeguard my heart as fiercely as my body?

Guarding the Quarterback

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I liked the premise of the story: a female bodyguard defending a star Quarterback. I was expecting to see sparks, because what man wants to be guarded by a woman ?

What would have made this book a 5 star read for me, was if Dean had more respect for Alexa as a professional and as a woman.

From the beginning it was him thinking a man protects the woman, Alexa isnt his type etc., etc.

I wanted Dean to acknowledge Alexa's capability, her dedication to her work.

I didn't get that in the book.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?


It has the making of a romantic comedy that will also appeal to lovers of sports.
