I was hired to protect her,
Getting her to scream my name was never a part of the deal.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way,
I wasn’t supposed to fall for her.
But one look at those toned legs,
And I am thinking how they would lock themselves so perfectly around my waist.
How her dirty-talking mouth was created for pure pleasure.
I never thought there could be more to her than s*x appeal.
Then I notice honesty under that attitude,
Vulnerability under that feistiness,
And I'm determined to uncover the real woman under the diva.
Bridget Meyers – I am determined to protect you,
From yourself and from your past.
But there’s just one thing I can’t protect you from: Me
And I won't let that be a show stopper.
This is the first book in the Show Stopper Series by Amy Brent.

Sadly, this book ended way before any of my questions were answered, so I’m excited to continue reading the story! A hidden secret is always exposed, and I can’t wait to find out what it is.
Very Quick Read

The story line: girl in trouble, girl needs bodyguard.
The book starts off with the heroine (Bridgett) having sex with someone other than the hero. There’s no real intro on the characters at this point. This scene is all well and good but it quickly moves on to the bodyguard arriving for his first day of work. At this point, we have no idea why Bridgette needs a bodyguard so It seems a bit of an abrupt transition . Unless there was some relevance to the sex scene which we don’t know about yet, I’m not sure what the point of it was.
I also thought it was odd that she hired a bodyguard (Thomas) but refused to tell him what it was he was guarding her against. I understand that’s it’s setting the story up but at the very least, she could have giving a general reason (ex: there was an attempt on my life or I have a stalker etc). The book is very short, doesn’t tell you much except they are attracted to each other and Thomas has a daughter he loves. And then it ends on a cliffhanger. The reader is given so little that you absolutely have to read the next book if only to see the characters develop. I think there’s potential here, but I would have to read more to know for sure.
Love this book!

I really like the characters and the plot of the story so far. The cliff hanger had me wanting more. I really want to know what Bridget is so afraid of. I can’t wait to see how the story plays out!
