Alex Roman is a billionaire who is great with money. He grew up with money and but also was down to earth. Jesse Emerson was Alex’s Grandfather’s butler’s son. He grew up with Alex. When Alex’s Grandfather and Jesse’s father die it sends each man into a tailspin.
Alex had to deal with the estate and his Grandfather’s company where Jesse joined the Air Force. However now Alex needs a bodyguard and now Jesse is back. Alex is going to push for Jesse to recognize his.
The connection between Jesse and Alex is intense. I loved that Jesse and Alex have a great friendship that goes beyond what most people have. They are close and care for each other. It’s also apparent that if a relationship does not work out between them they will still have a friendship. The sex scenes were blistering.
I found this book well written with a unique plot. I loved the balance of suspense and romance. The main characters and the secondary characters were interesting. The ending of the book was a bit predictable but there is enough twists and turns that keep the reader on their toes all the way through. Overall, I really enjoyed this book.
Billionaire Alex Roman needs a bodyguard. His best friend, Jesse Emerson, an ex-Security Forces Specialist, needs a job. What could possibly go wrong?
Jesse thinks protecting Alex will be a piece of cake. He’ll get to spend quality time with his oldest friend while avoiding his ex-girlfriend. Of course, nothing ever goes as planned. Why would Alex introduce him to everyone as his lover? And why didn’t Alex tell him about the threatening notes he’s been receiving for months?
Alex has been in love with Jesse for years, not that he’d ever admit it to his best friend, but he’s not above making a practical joke out of it. Telling everyone that Jesse is his boyfriend will go a long way toward relieving the stress of the threats he’s been plagued with recently. Unfortunately, when someone tries to shoot him at a charity gala, he discovers that maybe he needs Jesse’s skills more than he realized...
…because sometimes a billionaire’s best friend is the fake boyfriend who’s really his bodyguard.
