In this steamy novel of seduction and international intrigue, two brave men are stripped of their defenses—and exposed to dangers and desires that simmer below the surface.
As an agent with the CIA’s special activities division, Seth Lang lives for risk—and yet he’s stuck playing bodyguard to the U.S. consul general in Munich. Although Seth’s last assignment nearly killed him, babysitting some desk jockey in a suit sounds way too easy. But when he lays eyes on the new top man, tactical expert Rick Fine, Seth’s thrilled to see just how hard this job is going to get. Mr. Tall, Dark, and Quiet has a body worth guarding—and he requires hands-on attention day and night.
Dispatched to a German consulate to expose the murder of his predecessor, Rick finds himself in an extremely vulnerable position. He needs a man like Seth—in so many ways. This mission will inevitably plunge them both into jeopardy, but each new threat only brings them closer. Rick just hopes that he can keep his deepest, darkest secret hidden—or else risk imperiling a relationship they’re both fighting for their lives to protect.

Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Wow, this was a great book. Hot and steamy!
I've read all of the books in this series and loved them but you don't need to have read the others to enjoy this one. All of the books stand alone and can be read in any order.
Until I began reading this series I hadn't read any M/M stories that were so suspenseful or thrilling. Guarding Mr. Fine starts off with the sexy stuff pretty quickly but doesn’t lack suspense or thrills later.
Seth Lang is on his way to an assignment to "babysit" a diplomat; something that he certainly isn't looking forward to. He has a hot, fast hook up with a guy in a bar and you can probably guess who that turns out to be.
Rick Fine knows how stupid he is to ditch his protection and hook up with a stranger but he just couldn't resist the fine specimen that had both male and female heads turning.
This book had my heart pounding more than just a few times and as much for the sexy time as it did for the thrilling suspense. When Seth discovers his assignment it to guard the man he hooked up with a few days before they officially meet he just manages to keep his "cool" face in place; Rick does a much better job of hiding his reaction.
This story is full of suspense, intrigue and enough red herrings to keep you guessing until the bad guy is revealed. And oh, Rick Fine has a secret of his own that might just destroy the best thing that ever happened to him.
I hope there will be more books in this series as I am nowhere near ready for it to end.
A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book.
This is my first book by HelenKay Dimon and I must say I am quite impressed. The plot is spectacular, full of intrigue, mystery, and espionage, and the characters are complex, well developed and real. They really draw you right into the story and you just can't help but become invested in their lives. This book hooked me from the start and kept me riveted to the very last page. The pace is steady and never boring. Overall, I found the book to be provocative and gripping and romantic and absorbing and sexy and completely compelling. If you love romantic thrillers, this is the book for you!
*I was given an advanced copy of this book via NetGalley and voluntarily chose to review. All opinions are my own.
This is book # 3 in the Tough Love series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. The series is actually fast paced and amazing. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading these in order.
Rick and Seth have worked together before. Only one of them knows it. Now they are in Germany trying to keep a murderer from striking again.
Seth tries hard to never mix business with pleasure. Guarding a sexy man can be done with keeping his hands to himself. Right?
This was a great installment to the series. Has a very good pace and the characters are very real. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about these two.
