"A swoonworthy bodyguard series with primal passion, unexpected twists, and surprising laughs!"--Rebecca Zanetti, New York Times bestselling author
SHE NEEDS A LOVER AND A FIGHTER
Blonde. Beautiful. Talented. Alexa Fairfax is practically Hollywood royalty. But growing up in a family of legendary movie stars also puts her in the spotlight for danger. And after she discovers a plot more deadly than any movie script, Alexa desperately needs a bodyguard. A man like Zack De Luca. A true friend with a good heart, a protective nature-and the hard, chiseled muscles to back it up.

Zack has always been wildly attracted to Alexa. But since he's training day and night to be an MMA fighter, he's afraid his gorgeous friend will only distract him from his goal. Indescribably sweet and irresistibly sexy, Alexa needs Zack to pretend to be her boyfriend after her life is threatened. Now this fighter-in-training will have to fight his own intense feelings - to keep their little charade from turning into a major disaster . . .

Wyatt still brings the heat but fumbles the character growth in her third Bodyguard contemporary romantic thriller (after Necessary Risk). Alexa Fairfax, heir to the Fairfax Hollywood dynasty, has always felt stifled by her hypercritical and denigrating mother, and has recently tried to break away from the abuse of her wealthy father. But when an attempt to flee her mother’s criticism during a dinner at the family home leads her to overhear her father discussing a murder plot with one of his colleagues, Alexa finds herself in way over her head. Fortunately, she stumbles into Zach De Luca, a mixed martial arts fighter and professional bodyguard. Alexa proceeds to be a cloying, helpless damsel; Zach is a marginally more interesting guy who’s inexplicably taken with the bland Alexa. Several sex scenes show up at the end, but the sizzle doesn’t sufficiently compensate for many of the eyeroll-inducing descriptions of Zach’s prodigious endowment, nor for some very questionable notions of what constitutes consent. This installment may satisfy fans of the series; others will want to pass. Agent: Jessica Watterson, Sandra Dijkstra Literary. (Feb.)
