Overview

Desire like this wasn’t in the script…

Heart of Fame, Book 3

Small-screen sex symbol Chris Huntley is on the fast track to becoming the next big action-blockbuster movie star. When his latest movie takes him to Australia for a red-carpet premiere, he thinks he’s ready for anything.

But nothing could have prepared him for his raw, carnal response to his Aussie bodyguard. Sexual attraction to a man is a first for Chris. Now he realizes why his relationships with women have never felt quite…complete.

Liev Reynolds is comfortable with his bisexuality, but his attraction to Chris is an inconvenience he must ignore. For starters, there’s his professional ethics. Then there’s the long trail of female broken hearts in Chris’s wake.

Hard as they both try to keep their minds on their jobs, desire and a little matchmaking tip them over the edge. But Hollywood endings aren’t real life. And when the truth leaks out, their careers aren’t the only collateral damage.

Warning: A hunky Hollywood sex symbol. A smoldering, stubborn Australian. A desire so powerful it cannot be denied. A kiss. And a photograph. This isn’t your normal boy-meets-boy story.

    Wow

    ## Holy freaking cow. This book was STUNNING. After reading and loving "Muscle for Hire" I was hoping Chris would get his own story and BOY did he. The affair between the two MEN was so hot it had me squirming in my seat (there's a sentence I never thought I'd say). But, sex aside, the emotion Ms. Couper conveyed was breathtaking. I love how she wrote such playfulness (is that a word?) into the story. And the hero Chris? Holy hotness batman, this guy was sexy, honest and so fun-loving. Do yourself a favor and read this book. Another winner from Ms. Lexxie Couper.

    Great read

    My only complaint is that its too short. I would love to see these two have a whole series developed just around them.

    I completely enjoyed this funny, sexy, and emotional story. Chri

    I completely enjoyed this funny, sexy, and emotional story. Chris is your typical Hollywood heartthrob we meet in the previous book from this series Muscle For Hire. Chris doesn't know that Liev had protected him from a distance in Muscle for Hire, and nothing has prepared him for his intense reaction when he meets Liev. Now Liev, however, is comfortable with who he is despite the high cost of his decision to just embrace being himself. He knows that Chris is one sexy guy, but he also wasn't prepared for the intense attraction he has for him either when he gets to know him as he is supposed to be focused on protecting the Hollywood star. These two have undeniable chemistry, and I love the way that the story progressed. They didn't just jump right into bed, and it actually took a bit of a shove for them to finally cave to their desire. I think the way Chris handled things was very brave, and I found that Liev was admirable when he tried to back off out of fear of hurting Chris despite his own feelings. I really hope we get to see more of these two in the future books, because I just love them both!

    Totally fallen in love with this Australian author and her work!

    This book is downright hysterical and will have you in stitches with the main character’s inner monologue. The sex is downright steamy and hot and I couldn't get enough. The ending of the book is wonderful and will leave you smiling. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author.

    This is the kind of Erotic novel I've been looking for. I've bee

    This is the kind of Erotic novel I've been looking for. I've been needing something really dirty and I found that with Guarded Desires. I don't read a whole lot of M/M, but I gotta say, there is something so hot about a good sword fight. This book was so hot that I'm still having hot flashes just thinking about it! I can't form coherent thoughts. Know this...my husband reaped the rewards of me reading this book. Multiple times. This is also the kind of book I'll set aside for when I need inspiration. Yes, I have several moments highlighted for future use. Aside from the sexy times, I really did like Chris and Liev. Individually they were great guys and together they were smokin'. I highly recommend this one if you're a fan of Erotica. 




    Note: Even though this is part of a series, I feel like this can be read as a stand alone.
