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.
Guarding Mr. Fine is the first book I have read by this author and that disappoints me. I did not know this was part of a series. I should say that there was not a problem following the story at all. The flow was good, I liked the writing and I plan on reading more by this author in the future.
The story opens with them Seth wanting to let loose before starting his new post. No names or numbers exchanged. Supposed to be one night to have fun then off to do a job. He works for SAD and his next assignment is to be the bodyguard of the new U.S. consul general in Munich. Seth is a dominant, alpha male in a nutshell. I loved him.
Rick is an agent or has been called a desk jockey working behind the scenes. These men have more in common than they know. Both Rick and Seth are strong men that had a crappy childhood. They own their sexuality. They don’t hide it from anyone. The banter between the two comes in spades. They give and get so well. I found myself smiling at it. The book has a little bit of everything. There was drama, passion, lust, friendship, and some mystery. The sex scenes were hot and ignited the pages.
I look forward to reading more in this series.
