Overview

Guarding His Heart is a STANDALONE book with no cliffhanger

Leonardo Maxwell was shocked when his best friend, Zane Beaumont fell in love and got married. While he is happy for his friend, he knows that he definitely doesn't want to go the love and marriage route. He knows that there is nothing that can come from either of the two.

When his father calls him and tells him that it's time for him to take over the family business, he does so reluctantly. He's never liked the attention he gets as a billionaire's son, but he knows it's his duty.

Leo is not prepared for the animosity that he gets from his new assistant, Hannah on his first day of work. He has no idea why she hates him, but he's glad for it. He doesn't have time to waste staring at her beautiful long legs or her pink luscious lips. As far as he's concerned they can have a strictly professional relationship. However, that all changes when they go on their first work trip together.

Guarding His Heart is recommended for readers age 18 and over, due to mature situations and language.

    You know what I like the most from J.S Cooper books? that She doesn't need 300 pages to tell a good story.


    “I didn’t know that backstabbing in the corporate world started in those as young as twenty four. I thought it started when folks hit their thirties at least.”
    “Nepotism doesn’t start in the thirties, so why should backstabbing?”
    “So you admit that you’ve got a plan to backstab me?”
    “I don’t have a plan to do anything.”
    “I used to be a bodyguard you know, well, more like a bouncer, but I don’t take crap very well.”
    “Are you threatening me?” Her lips trembled as she stared at me with narrowed eyes. It took everything I had in me to not laugh. This girl was a spitfire. A real spitfire. She was going to make my first few weeks very interesting.

    Guarding his Heart is the book of Zayn’s best friend, Leo. Leo, as Zane,didn't like to do the "girlfriends thing" until…… He found the correct woman. Leo is a good guy but sometimes he can be an ass LOL. Fortunately, Hanna appears to master that horse…. Because she likes to ride… if you now what I mean. The relationship between them is so perfect… they’re “kind of honest” about what they expect from each other,.. even if the honesty is about sex. The chemistry between the characters is so hot that you’ll wish to have your own Leo.
    Even if he was a man whore…. He's the sweetest man in the world
    I loved this book. I loved the characters. I loved everything.
    Once again J.S Cooper show us how complicated men in a funny way. I love her writing style and I loved every single Word of this book.
    I really, really recomend this book girls. You’ll love it <3
    Also, you will find out more about Zane and Lucky’s life :D

    Guarding His Heart..WOW!!! You can't get any better than Leo. Leo is a bit of a rebel. A hot, rich gorgeous rebel. He briefly works at his fathers company to find he doesn't really fit in. He goes to work as a bouncer/body guard. I was first introduced to Leo in the Forever Love Series. Leo is Zane's best friend. We got to know very little about him, so awesome he got his own book. Leo grew up and matured a bit. With this he decided to go back to being CEO of his fathers company. He soon meets Hannah and quickly learns she had interviewed for the position Leo was handed. You know family nepotism. She's a bit upset at first. But quickly they realize they have great chemistry which leads into friendship and more. Great book JSCooper.

    Where to start. Leo while he can be charming is quick to jump to conclusions before knowing all of the information in certain aspect. Hannah is the same though in that same aspect. I absolutely loved both characters and will say that while I love Zane I think I might love Leo more! I also love how things worked out between Leo and Hannah!

    "Have you ever just wanted to open your mouth and insert yo

    "Have you ever just wanted to open your mouth and insert your foot? Well that's exactly what Hannah wanted to do after talking about how horrible her new boss is to the sexy man on the elevator. She went on and on about spoiled rich kids like the owners son. Well as it turns out, Mr. Sexy just so happens to be said new boss, Leo Maxwell. This amused Leo and he began a back and forth banter with Hannah including inappropriate sexual remarks. Leo is all about fun and sex, but no relationships. He's been hurt in the past and will not let another woman get to him. Hannah was so mad that Leo took her chance at a promotion. She was looking for ways to get him. After spending time together on a business trip, Hannah begins to feel differently towards Leo. They give in to their sexual tension and become "friends with benefits". Leo finds himself thinking about Hannah more and more and not just for sex. He really starts to open up until he finds out something that could destroy everything. Will Leo let Hannah explain or will he continue to guard his heart?"

    Exceptional, Amazing, Outstanding! Yes that is Leo describing hi

    Exceptional, Amazing, Outstanding! Yes that is Leo describing himself in the bedroom!  I freaking love his cocky attitude and amazingness (I just made up a word for him!) 
    I loved loved loved The Forever Love Series and Guarding His Heart did not disappoint! 
    The tense sexual tension between Hannah and Leo is hot! 
    The Batter between the two is hilarious!
    The Sex is.... Yum!  
    When Leo becomes Hannah's boss after stealing the job right beneath his nose, it isn't a surprise that Hannah is upset.
    Who wouldn't be? He is hot though... and a bit of a flirt and damn good at his job even though she doesn't want to believe it...
    Lines are blurred in what is and isn't appropriate. Who will have trouble sticking to the rules? Will they bend or break? Is there away that Leo will let his guard down? BUY IT! READ IT! YOU WILL LOVE IT!

    I enjoyed Lucky and Zane’s story but I absolutely love Leo and Hannah’s. This book was absolutely hilarious, if I wasn’t laughing at Hanna and Leo (the stallion) I was laughing at Lisa and Hannah. Hannah had no idea when she was bad mouthing the new CEO in the elevator that she was speaking to her new boss. Leo has Hannah right where he wants her and its funny to watch her try to rebel and resist. Some of the best parts in this book were definitely the texts/emails between the two. They say don’t mix business with pleasure but when you have Leo as a boss, business and pleasure goes hand and hand. This book is a standalone and definitely worth reading.

    First off let me say this book was very funny along with very se

    First off let me say this book was very funny along with very sexy. I had the pleasure of getting an ARC and was so excited I read this book in less the two days. Not only did I fall in love with Leo but with his story as well. As I was reading this book I was letting the words play a movie in my head.....I had all the characters picked out was really pulling for Leo get his life together. I also like that we got to see a little glimpse of Lucky and Zane. I thought the email exchanges were a fun way for it not to feel like you were reading a book and to help the reader connect with what was going on. I like that Hannah also was a spit fire and gave back just as good as she got. I like that she stood up for herself but also allowed herself to fall for Leo. J.S. Cooper is a genius at writing funny, sexy books that make you fall in love with her stories and characters. I cant wait to see what she comes up with next. Great book!!!!!!!

    I received this as an ARC from the amazing JS Cooper and here is my honest review of Guarding His Heart.
    Leo Maxwell didn't want to work for his CEO father, but here he was in Corporate America again. Hannah Will worked for Maxwell Corp and was positive she was getting promoted to Account Manager when all of a sudden the bosses son came back and stole the job from her. On top of this, she was being made to be his assistant. When Leo and Hannah first meet in the elevator she tells him of her disdain for her new boss, not knowing Leo is him. Leo, though taken aback is amused by her and decides to keep her around for some fun. They have a wonderful banter between them. The more they work together, the more they become aware of a mutual attraction to each other. They actually start liking each each other. Leo, who has gone through a bad relationship in the past, doesn't believe in love or relationships, just sex. On a business trip to New York the sparks ignite and everything between them changes. Leo and Hannah start to have feelings for each other unbeknownst of the other. When misunderstandings happen between them, all they've started could come crashing down and cause Leo to once again guard his heart. This is a stand alone book by the marvelously talented JS Cooper. If you've read her Forever Love series you will be familiar with characters in this book. I loved this book and devoured it quickly. A sexy, steamy romance that will thrill you. JS Cooper always has strong, sexy and yet confused about love males in her books, who you can't help but fall in love with, Leo Maxwell is one of these. Hannah is a smart, feisty, independent woman I can relate to. A contemporary romance, with so much heat, you'll need a fan to cool yourself off. Another winner for JS Cooper. Get it today and start reading

    Okay

    This book was good for entertainment value, however, it lacked a lot. Most paragraghs were all over the place, and the characters seemed to think and do things at an immature level. I found a lot of inconsistencies and was overall disappointed. The storyline was good, it just could have been written better.
