Computer nerd Brooke Armstrong has resolved herself to never having the same appeal to men as her beautiful and social butterfly of a sister. Her intelligence, weight, and socially ineptitude are off-putting to most men so she contents herself with running her own computer store – until she witnesses a drug deal gone bad and has to accept Gavin and Riley’s offer of protection against the killer whose intent on making sure she can’t identify him.
Gavin Kirkwood recently moved to Pleasure and had already met Brooke when he purchased computer supplies from her store but he was too busy setting up his business to act on his attraction to her. As luck would have it, he happened to be in the sheriff’s office when Brooke’s 911 call came in – and is more than happy to be able to offer to let her stay at his home until the killer is caught. This is more than a ‘nice’ gesture’ however, he’s convinced that Brooke would make the perfect submissive for him and his roommate and detective partner Riley Landon.
What Brooke doesn’t realize is that Gavin and Riley are offering much more than a place to stay and protection until things blow over and she and her family are safe. They genuinely want her to stay with them permanently, but first they need to catch and killer and then they can focus all their attention on Brooke – but then again, they have a desirable woman in their home, and it appears the attraction goes both ways. Even better, Brooke longs to be able to relax and not have to constantly be so in control of everything – and Gavin and Riley are very good at making sure the only thing she needs to worry about is pleasing them.
BODYGUARDS OF PLEASURE kicks off with an intense murder scene and poor Brooke running for her life, and while that rest of that drama unfolds throughout the storyline, readers are treated to a sizzling and sometimes humorous romantic entanglement between Brooke, Gavin and Riley. I love that Melody Snow Monroe put some insight into her characters and made her heroine an intelligent, full-figured woman who’s not afraid to speak her mind. Of course Gavin and Riley are sex personified everything you’d expect an alpha male to be, which makes them super appealing – either on their own or as a package deal. BODYGUARDS OF PLEASURE is a fun, intense storyline with plenty of sexual tension and romance to keep readers fully entertained until the very last page – then sends you in search of the other titles in Ms. Monroe’s PLEASURE, MONTANA series.
So far there are a total of nine titles in the PLEASURE, MONTANA series, but don’t worry they can be read in any order since they easily read as stand-alone stories. The titles, in order, are:
BELLA’S BAD BIKERS
BODYGUARDS OF PLEASURE
TWO DOMS FOR VICKI

Bodyguards of Pleasure is a very sexy - suspensy Erotic ménage Romance (m/f/m).
After witnessing a man being killed in the alley behind her store in Pleasure, Montana, 30 year-old Computer-Nerd Brooke Armstrong needs to hide from the bad guys. Gavin Kirkwood and Riley Landon, 2 Private Detectives - new residents of Pleasure - take on the 'job' of protecting her.
And like many people in the town of Pleasure, they soon start a ménage relationship - while still trying to keep the killers away from Brooke.
I really liked the story.
Brooke is a slightly overweight, shy, computer expert, who's always dreamed of having a guy dominate her in the bedroom. But she's been disappointed a lot in the past, that's why she's a bit slow in believing those two sexy guys really want her. But they do - and it's H.O.T.!!!! Lots of sex! Brooke with Gavin - Brooke with Riley and of course all 3 of them together!
Gavin and Riley are really adorable - they know they're interested in Brooke from the first moment - they want to make the relationship permanent. But it's a bit hard for Brooke to let go of all her old fears...
But of course she overcomes her fears and there will be some pretty hot - bdsm-sex with blindfolds, cuff, safewords etc. ¿
And the suspense part of the book is really good too - not unbelievable or weird. It even has a few shocking moments that would make you jump off the couch - if the book would be a movie ¿
Of course there will be a happy end - and we also meet 2 other possible ménage couples for future books ;)
I really enjoyed the book!
(I wouldn't have minded 150 pages more - with more sex and with just more Gavin-Brooke-Riley!)

The pink alicorn was the first to help the fillies. She scooped up the orange unicorn that she had been carrying earlier. When the unicorn stopped crying, she started to trot towards home. <p>
On her way, she saw a pile of green blanket shaking like an autumn leaf. The alicorn decided it was fit to see if there was anypony under it before she left it be. Without hesitation, she brushed away corners of the blanket and found the source of the shivering: a small hot pink filly. Tears were streaming down her face. Purple wing outstretched, the alicorn picked up the shivering filly. "Mind if I borrow this?" <br>
"Y-you c-c-can us-se it." The alicorn wrapped it around the two unicorns on her back. Then she kept trotting home. <p>
Little did she know that she would be home late. As the princess was going home, she spotted a blue fleck in the perfect white snow. She trotted towards it and found a colbalt pegasus, face bloodied. "Dear," the alicorn remarked. She picked up the filly and put her with the unicorns on her back. Then she kept trotting. <br>
A yellow pegasus stopped in front of her on the way. She waited until the alicorn picked her up. Falling asleep, she snuggled up close. <br>
On her way, she saw a gold filly with a crooked leg, whimpering, unconcious in a pool of blood. "Oh no!" The alicorn picked the unconcious pony and took her home. <br>
She was warming the fillies by the fire and bandaging the hurt filly's leg. Knocking at the door startled her, but she opened it. A cream filly, covered in raw hoof marks, was standing at the door. "I'm Jigsaw." <br>
"Cadance," the alicorn smiled. <br>
All the fillies smiled, too. "Uh, guys?" Cadance said, ponting to her flank with her horn. Everypony looked for their Cutie Marks, and they did have them! "Oh! When I got my Cutie Mark, I realized I can use the power of magic! In books and real life!" <br>
"When I got my Cutie Mark I was drawing flames!" <br>
"When I got my Cutie Mark I turned purple and started sparkling..?" <br>
"The leaves made a perfect leaf pile when I got mine!" <br>
"I felt broken like a puzzle and started inventing one!" <br>
"My blood made great ink and I wrote 'get more ink'. I think ink is my talent!" <br>
"How is ink a talent?"

Title: Bodyguards of Pleasure (Pleasure Montana Book 8)
Author: Melody Snow Monroe
Publisher: Siren Publishing
E-Book ASIN: B00DNJCR24
Tags: Menage, D/s, Bondage, Contemporary, BDSM
Brooke Armstrong walks out behind her computer store to dispose of the trash when she hears a muted argument. Curious, but not wanting to be seen as nosy she stays in the shadows as she looks over at two men out side the hotel alley exit. Then things turn violent and the hooded man stabs the man he knocked on the ground. When he reaches his hand into the wounded man's abdomen Brooke can not hold back a scream, drawing the aggressors attention to her. As he rushes towed her, bloodied knife in his hand, Brooke runs back into her store, locking the door as the angry man pounds on the door. Finding her cell phone she phone the sheriff's office to tell them of the assault and the man trying to break into her store. She quickly drops the phone, even as the dispatcher is telling her to stay on the line, when the man breaks out the front window and starts to climb into her store after her.
Racing out the back door she takes off through the hotel and out the front to the Sheriff's office across the street. Stumbling in she tell them of what she witnessed. Gavin Kirkwood goes to her and helps her sit down as she tells her story. Knowing she can not return to her home when the evidence tells him her life is in danger Gavin takes Brooke to his home. Brooke finally agrees but wonders what Gavin's roommate, Riley Landon, will think of a stranger coming to intrude on his peace and quiet. Riley and Gavin served together in Iraq and then opened a detective agency with some of their fellow vets. New to Pleasure both men had found the full figured Brooke very appealing, but decided to wait until their new office of their detective agency was set up and established before perusing her. Timelines are moved up as the attraction between Brooke and the two men grows and she gives in to the joy of submitting to her two Doms.
Can Riley and Gavin keep her alive long enough to convince her to stay with them forever? Will the killer succeed in silencing the only witness? The more they investigate the more danger moves toward them. They must identify the man and tract him down before he takes the only women to fulfill the needs od each man.
A wonderful series set in Pleasure, Montana from the incredible imagination of Melanie Snow Monroe. It moves with a fast and steady pace that draws you in. Before you know it you are reading the last page with sorrow because you do not want it to end. You are in luck that there are seven previous books in the series and you can easily get them so that you do not have to leave the unusual town right away. This series is made up of stand alone titles, but I personally enjoy reading a series from the beginning so that I can watch the storyline and characters develop and interact so yes I have purchased the others as well. I eagerly await Ms. Monroe's next story in the series. Surprise book nine Two Doms for Vicki is available to continue your visit to pleasure. I know you will be joining me in Pleasure again soon.

This book starts off with a bang. And, then it falls into the abyss of drudgery. The only redeeming factor in entire book is the last chapter - then you get what you were supposed to get in the entire story - excitement and anticipation of danger.
If you like these types of stories (I certainly do) this book was very lackluster.

This is the first book that I have read in the Bodyguards of Pleasure series and all I can say is Melody Snow Monroe has written one Sexy Book. The sparks that fly between Gavin, Riley and Brooke will keep you intrigued through out the book. I love how the three consenting adults have beautiful sex and that it was not trashy. This book will leave you wanting your own personal bodyguards and definitely wanting to read more of Ms.Monroe's books.

I have read most of the Pleasure, CO series. I enjoyed them. A bit of light fun to liven up slow nights. Brooke is a believable character and given the limited time frame, love at first sight happens. Brooke has confidence issues when it comes to personal relationships, but is on top of her nerd game. Riley is a neat freak with a touch of OCD, and Gavin is just an all around nice guy. Between the three of them they do seem to be a good fit.
Brooke while nervous, is not hesitant to explore her submissive side and immediately gives them complete trust. Riley's insistence that Gavin is a not a real Dom, while he himself is, makes me think that it would be hard to remember all of the rules of the game while in the moment.
Given the limitations of the story it works, and it was a nice, easy read.
I was given an ARC via netgalley for an honest review.

This is the first book that I have read by this author. I really liked the premise of the story, nerdy, computer geek witnesses a crime and has to seek protection. Brooke is taking out the trash and witnesses a murder in an alley. She runs back into her store and calls 9-1-1. Brooke has some insecurities in regards to relationships as she is shy and does not have a model's figure. In steps Gavin and Riley, both ex-military who are in the process of relocating/opening a security agency with other friends in the Bozeman/Pleasure Montana area. They undertake the task of keeping Brooke safe. Brooke is attracted to both but doesn't think that she has a chance with either. Brooke also thinks that she is into BDSM due to romance books that she has read. Quickly a M/F/M light BDSM relationship develops. The suspense/danger part of the story moved very quickly and occurred over a few days' time frame. In that short amount of time Brooke jumped into a sexual relationship with both Gavin and Riley. If you believe in love at first sight then you will have no problem with how quickly this relationship develops.

I received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Computer shop owner Brooke witnesses a violent crime and barely escapes. Gavin overhears her incident and offers to protect her while the police search for the murderer. She’s grateful for his assistance but intimidated by his good looks. How could someone as hot as him be interested in nerdy, curvy her? And then she meets his equally hunky roommate, Riley. A double shot of too-good-to-be true.
Gavin should have asked Brooke out the very first day he met her when he’d turned up at her shop looking for computer parts. Her unfortunate episode has landed her in his house. He and Riley intend to take advantage of their good fortune because Brooke is perfect…to share
This is actually the second story I’ve read by Melody Snow Monroe. I read the first book in the Pleasure Montana series, Chelsea’s Pleasure. While I enjoyed that one, this one lacked the backstory the first in the series claimed. It was believable for Chelsea and her two lovers to fall for each other as quickly as they did given they’d known each other all their lives. However in this story, the Brooke, Gavin, and Riley had only recently met. The romance was rushed and, for me, unbelievable for the HEA we got at the end. I’d have given it three and half stars if this is been a HFN with the L-word not tossed around. That said, the suspense was handled fairly well with a solid plot.
So if you like your ménages heavy on the sex, light on the romance, and with a decent plot, this story is for you. However if you enjoy a believable romance between three consenting adults, this one pushed it by having the L-word come up far too early.
