Publisher's Summary

After a stalker breaks into her home, internet entrepreneur Bee Langston decides Kelly Connolly is the only man who can help her - but seeking help from the former Marine isn't easy, especially after she made a spectacular fool of herself trying to kiss the sinfully sexy bodyguard.
When Kelly spots Bee weaving her way through the Houston nightspot where he's working security, all those feelings he's desperately tried to deny for his best friend's sister come flooding to the surface. He'll do anything to keep her safe, even if it means getting up close and personal with the one woman he simply can't have.
Soon, Bee's stalker isn't his only problem. His gambling addict father is tangled in a mess of debts to two of Houston's toughest loan sharks. With the family gym on the line, there's only one way for Kelly to make everything right. He agrees to fight for the Albanian mob in an underground bare-knuckle tournament.
But winning the tournament and saving his family's legacy comes at a high price - one that just might cost Bee her life.

3.5 STARS GOOD BUT JUST NOT WHAT I WAS EXPECTING

Warning.... don't (as I did) look at the cover mm...mm..mm, read the Summary and think "that sounds like a great book about a hot sexy ex Marine Alpha Fighter and Bodyguard who's going to be a strong character and a demanding lover" (or is it only me that thinks that?) because sorry it's not. Now that's to say it's a bad story because it wasn't but it just wasn't what I was expecting at all from that cover picture.

This is more about Bee, the Heroine, who's a rich successful Entrepreneur but because of the awful narration of her, she sounds more like a sixteen year old girl and she acts and does some stupid things. However, Kelly, his family, the other characters (both good and evil) along with his fellow bodyguards all thankfully make up for her. There's a stalker, blackmail, loan sharks, Russian mobsters, a short glimpse into a few underground fights and a dead brother whose secrets causes problems. Instant love, a little romance, an explicit but sweet sex scene, some 'duh as if' scenes, drama, twists, surprises and some tense situations all added up to a fairly enjoyable listen.

Dual POV's ok narration except for the Heroine's too young awful awful voice.

Worth a credit? I felt like I was missing something during this story because so many of the characters mentioned events from the past and I now see that the author has another series (Her Russian Protector) and so I think I would have enjoyed and gotten more out of this book if I'd listened to them first. However, I didn't so all I can finally say is that it was an ok listen, not what I was expecting, with no Alpha Hero in sight but still just about creditworthy.

Lena did not have a Russian accent, compared to the stories that I have listened to.
