Take the shot…or take a chance?
FBI sniper Andre Diaz saved Juliette Lawson from a deadly hostage situation. But only hours later, he receives the surprise of his life when she takes him hostage in order to escape Quantico. Now the federal agent knows just how desperate Juliette is to stay hidden from her dangerous cop ex-husband.
Putting her trust in another law enforcement officer is difficult. Yet Juliette senses Andre is definitely one of the good guys. Perhaps he truly can protect her from the secrets she's been running from—unless her deadly past catches up with them both first.
I loved this story! From the very first scene, I was giddy with excitement to find out how the plot will play out. There's a perfect balance between the riveting action and the sweetest romance, both aspects were played off in an excellent fashion, making them believable, intense, and captivating.
FBI sniper Andre Diaz and his brothers of heart, Marcos, and Cole, have a rare connection between them. The brotherly love, care, and loyalty are thick and tight, there is nothing that would ever come in between them. Those three together was enough to make me swoon, I can't wait to read the stories for Marcos and Cole.
The intensity of the suspense and the mysteries behind the attacks keeps the energy high and vigorous through the story. As the suspects of the attacks are known, the tension is intensified by the culprit's close connection to Juliette Lawson, the eerie feeling of knowing they are coming after her again, and the fact that the brothers are dancing on the line of legal and illegal measures to keep Juliette safe.
All the characters in the story are appealing and charismatic, people I look forward to getting to know more about. Juliette and Andre's attraction is immediate, yet the connection has a believable quality to it. They are drawn to each other both mentally and physically, the growing feelings they have for each other are nearly palpable in the air. I loved how the budding relationship balanced the deadly, callous crimes. On the other hand, the story is vicious, but the developing emotions between Juliette and Andre brought joy and wonder of falling in love to the tale.
Cold-blooded, heartless acts of crime mixed with adorable and ardent romance and devoted and true bromance made Bodyguard With a Badge compelling, potent, and dynamic story that was impossible to put down before the end. Highly recommended!
