I was a little thrown off by the pawing and "you mean so much to me so fast" feelings these two are having. The instalust just isn't working for me here. The connection just doesn't feel organic.
This story is seriously just "meh" for me. I really wanted to love it. I love a good bodyguard story and I love love LOVE a hot sexy latin hero. This story had both. This story also had a heroine that was too stupid to live. She didn't necessarily DO anything stupid but her attitude is stupid. She made excuse after excuse for why Lucas can't help her, why she didn't get help for her mom, why she enables her mom's insanity, why they can't be together. blah blah blah. I understand having a character who has issues with her past but shit woman this chick couldn't catch a break between a stalker and a murder attempt, her mom, her brother, etc. All of these external issues coming to head in less than a week is seriously just too much.
Can I just say I love hearing the narrator say things in spanish in his deep voice....so sexy. It's not a saving grace for the book but it's still a nice touch.
I'll listen to the next book as filler but again not a multiple listen for me, but at least the narrator had a sexy voice...lol.

Lucas, an ex Navy SEAL and Mi, a host of an Adult Sex Toy TV Show were thrown together when her life was threatened and she was assigned a Bodyguard. An all Alpha huge and intimidating Bodyguard that was going to stick to her 24/7 but before even a "hello" was uttered the sparks flew. As their intense chemistry and friendship grew it was closely followed by lust and plenty of sex but their lives were totally different.... and she had a bag full of secrets that she didn't want to share.
A crazy stalker, an angry anti-show mob, a pushy ex Fiancée, one loving but demanding family and one broken dysfunctional family, together with some interesting secondary characters, made this a very enjoyable listen. It packs in drama, suspense, a twist or two, light humor, heartbreak, various interesting sub-plots and a romance that grew into a tender sweet love story. Lucas and Mi were multi-layered well developed likeable characters who had both been through difficult times but, for Mi, the painful secrets she kept close was robbing her of her HEA ending and they proved just as life threatening as everything else.
Worth a credit? A well written and nicely narrated story told from dual POV's with all the different plot threads smoothly interweaving giving you a compelling listen that's sizzling, thrilling and YES creditworthy. Great start to a new series and thanks to the preview chapter of book 2 I'll be downloading Lush asap.
