She’s got the brains, he’s got the muscle …
When Kelly Bridge’s parents insist on employing a bodyguard for her protection, she’s not happy. Okay, so maybe not every woman is on the cusp of developing a vaccine against a potential biological terrorist attack – but crikey, it’s not like she’s a celebrity!

Ben Jacobs flunked spectacularly out of school, so he knows his new client Dr Kelly Bridge spells trouble for him. But on a conference trip to Rome he finds things are worse than he thought. Not only is he falling for the brilliant scientist, he’s also become horribly aware she’s in grave danger. As they go on the run, dodging bullets and kidnappers, can he resist his feelings and keep her safe?

My Thoughts

This has to be one of the most fun and entertaining romances that I have read for a while.  It combines romance, humour and action – what more could you want?

Dr Kelly Bridge is working on a classified vaccine when a few strange occurances happen.  Her parents insit on hiring a bodyguard until she has finished her work and so…introducing Ben, ex-special forces and a hunk.  Kelly is reluctant at first but then n incident makes her realise that she needs Ben’s protection more than ever.

Ben and Kelly are written in such a brilliant way.  The chemistry between them is sizzling from the word go but between misunderstandings things never go the right way. Kelly is scared of relationships and sex and Ben scared of science and big words – things often end in tantrums or hilarity.  Both characters are really likable and you spend the whole book waiting for the magic moment between them.

In addition to the romantic storyline we actually see some action. No you little minxes……I mean actual fighting, gun using, intense moments of action proving that Kelly did indeed need her bodyguard.

Kathryn Freeman’s writing style is light but makes for compulsive reading and a novel that I found hard to put down.  This is the perfect light hearted but very entertaining read – highly recommended.

Author Bio – Kathryn Freeman

Crikey - Kate Freeman-17 cropped.jpg

A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero.

With two teenage boys and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes come in many disguises.
