She never wanted fame…
After a video of her modeling her friend’s new clothing line goes viral, Gia suddenly finds herself thrust into the spotlight. She never wanted fame—she was just having fun and helping a friend. Unfortunately now she’s got a target on her back. Someone out there will do anything to destroy her. Someone who wants her dead.
Now she’s paying the price…
As his best friend’s sister, Gia is off limits. She’s also the woman of Lawson’s dreams—and hottest fantasies. When she’s targeted by a vicious stalker, all bets are off. As a Red Stone Security expert, he’ll keep her safe at any cost. What he doesn’t know is how he’s going to keep her out of his bed, because he’s never wanted anyone as badly as he wants her. He’s all about rules—it’s why he’s such a good bodyguard—while she seems determined to test his control at every step. But if they want to survive, they’ll have to work together to stop the killer…before it’s too late.
I continue to enjoy the Red Stone Security series and Guarding Her was a great addition! You get a bodyguard/brother’s best friend romance that really worked for me. Lawson and Gia were great! I loved that Gia was a realistic sized model and that she wasn’t really into modeling, but that her natural zest for life and desire to help her friend’s swimsuit line succeed really shone through in photos! Lawson was a good hero-at first he was determined that he could never be with Gia because her brother Juan would hate him. Once he gets over that, he then realizes he can’t be with her because she is now his client as he has been assigned to protect her.
These book, including Guarding Her, are quick and easy reads! If you like protector romances, I recommend this series!
