Well, I can honestly say that Harvey-Berrick has pleasantly surprised me. Billionaire romance is one of my fave tropes; however, this read which overflows with the laugh-out-loud scenes, cutting sarcasm and intrigue is unique in the respect that it’s a reversal of what I’d thought it would be. Remember bodyguard/driver Jason in 50? Then you’ll get my meaning!
I couldn’t help liking Justin Trainer, ex-Marine and professional bodyguard. A loving father, divorced and a tad pushed for cash…yeah, what happens when there’s a messy break-up, landing a well-paid job meant being able to think about his little girl’s future and having more quality time with her if of course, his ex would allow it. While he describes how he copes with his daughter’s mother’s shirty attitude, my heart went out to him. She’s a nasty piece of work, totally unreasonable, selfish and not surprisingly, explicit language flies left, right and centre when things get heated.
‘BODYGUARDS, we’re deeply misunderstood. We’re not unthinking, uncaring masses of muscle and testosterone, we have feelings, too.’
A man of few words, Devon Anderson’s a real enigma. Quite young to be a self-made billionaire, he’s generosity and concern for the wellbeing of others is highlighted throughout the story. He’s not so normal free time activity still remains a mystery, and I’m really looking forward to finding out the reason behind his behaviour in the room. Trainer’s been hired to protect him and to make sure that what goes on behind closed doors stays there. And believe you me, his loyalty to his boss is unquestionable. Actually, Devon worried me. I couldn’t ignore his loneliness and even though he does have a close friend, Trainer doesn’t trust this individual with a barge pole. Hmm, we’ll just have to wait to see what happens ‘cause the vibes I’d been getting weren’t in the slightest bit positive.
‘Would I take someone out of the equation just to preserve the boss’s secret? It ought to be a black and white question, but it’s not.’
Rachel, the housekeeper, knows one of the ways to the man’s heart she’s her eyes on is through his stomach! Yes, they’re attracted to each other and yes, she’s older than him which I liked a hell of a lot. Despite Trainer’s flirtatious manner, he takes his job very seriously and ‘fraternizing’ with this gorgeous staff member could lose him his job. Voicing her desires gives him that much-needed push so when they do eventually…you know…get to it, there’s no stopping them. Like dirty talkers? The sexual innuendos that rolled off Trainer’s tongue made Rachel and I blush and he’s not one to hold back in the bedroom, either.
“Babe, if my book was about you, it would be called ‘Cooking for the Billionaire’. But it’s not. It’s all about me.”
“Men! It’s always about them! As if the sun revolves around you.”
There’s more inner monologue than banter but this gave me an x-ray insight into Trainer’s thoughts and feelings. That being said, the quirky dialogue had me in fits, the turkey scene was beyond hilarious and the camel sketch…simply no words! Rachel’s witty comebacks, the drama, non-stop action and interesting characters all make this a read you won’t want to miss. Roll on Saving the Billionaire! Harvey-Berrick’s spoiling her readers and releasing the second book in this duet in no time at all. Bravo!
‘The turkey fought well, but I am The Victor. Eat that, turkey brains.’
