Bodyguard by CD Reiss Review

Bodyguard by CD Reiss

Series: Hollywood A-List, Book 2

From New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss: Protecting a celebrity in Hollywood isn’t easy, but protecting Emily could break his heart.

As a world-class dancer at the height of her career, Emily enjoys all the perks of fame—the parties, the glamour, the tours—but they’ve also attracted the attention of a dangerous ex-boyfriend hell-bent on getting her back.

Enter Carter Kincaid, a bodyguard so crushingly sexy he takes her breath away.

Carter’s the best in the business, and Emily is—professionally speaking—off-limits. But when it comes to stirring his desires, she’s making all the right moves. What’s happening between them is so hot it could get both of them burned. As Emily’s past gets closer, Carter is willing to break every rule of the job to save her. But letting Emily into his life also means letting her in on the secrets of his own past. For these two, falling in love could be the greatest risk of all.

My Review

Every time I read a CD Reiss book I’m pulled right in and her words keep me glued to the pages. She grabs my heart and my head and makes me want to be in this world, with these characters. Her stellar writing and heart-tugging storyline keep you on the edge of your seat and keep you there for the journey.

My heart was in my stomach for so much of this book and my eyes got a bit watery. Carter Kincaid has to be the most eligible bachelor in the universe, hands down. Fills out a suit, check. Insanely handsome, check. Emotional scars, check. Knows how to protect his woman, check. Bring on the swooning, ladies. This is your book.

Emily took me a little bit longer to love. I mean, the love was there, but there were some flaws in her character that bugged me and drew me out of the story a bit. But, not enough to fall out of love with the story or the characters. What did bring this story home for me was Phin. He was everything this story needed to be complete and the reason for my almost tears.

Another brilliant story from CD Reiss and I cannot wait to see what she has up her sleeve next.

About the Author

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
