Overview




A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint…

He can protect her from everyone except himself.

Alana Gore is in danger. A take-no-prisoners publicist, her way with people has made her more than a few enemies over the years, but a creepy stalker is an entirely different matter. She needs a bodyguard, and the only man she can ask is not only ridiculously hot, but reputed to have taste for women that goes beyond adventurous.

Chandler Gamble has one rule: don't protect anyone you want to screw. But with Alana, he's caught between his job and his increasingly hard libido. On one hand, Alana needs his help. On the other, Chandler wants nothing more than to take the hot volcano of a woman in hand. To make her writhe in pleasure, until she's at his complete mercy.

She needs protection. He needs satisfaction. And the moment the line is crossed, all hell will break loose...

    Another disappointment

    ## Another disappoinment by this author. I am mad at myself for buying this book. I hated the first two books in this series and didn't realize this was the third book. UGH. These Gamble men are awful. Chad and Chase were both arrogant ass*ole man-whores. And although Chandler is a tad (a small tad) better, he still left a lot to be desired. I definitely don't like stories that begin with the man having sex with someone else. And even though there was no penetration, it was clear he was about to 'do' her from behind when the heroine interupted. Speaking of 'from behind'....the sex was always from behind between these two. Why? It's like Chandler didn't want to look at her. And the heroines that Ms. Lynn writes are terrible as well. Bridget was so insecure with her weight issues overwhelming her; Maddie was a human doormat and let Chase treat her like dirt and this heroine Alana was cold and had zero personality. Don't waste your money on this inconsequential series. I wish I hadn't..

    The amount of time the author used the words "the reporter" annoyed the crap out of me. I'M JUST SAYING!! One star and only 27 pages too, to used those words so many times.

    Sexy. That's the first word that comes to mind when I think abou

    Sexy. That's the first word that comes to mind when I think about this book. It felt like a long wait for Tempting the Bodyguard, but the wait was certainly worth it! 




    Alana Gore is the type of character that readers love to hate. She stirs the pot, but usually for good reason. In this book, Alana redeems herself. And, I felt like I saw her in a different light. Probably because I saw her in a more vulnerable way. Someone is stalking her, so she turns to Chandler for help. 




    Chandler Gamble was everything I had hoped he would be. He's a strong alpha make with kinky tendencies. I dig it. Oh, and! He has a dirty mouth, which also works really well for me. I felt like he was good at getting Alana to be honest with herself and face their relationship for what it truly was. Which turned out to be something really good. I can't say that Chandler was my favorite Gamble, but I sure did love him. 




    The sexy: It was off the charts hot! I'll be honest, in the sexy scenes, I sorta replaced Alana with myself. It was easier that way for me, helped me to get more into the moment. Ha! And like I said before, Chandler's dirty mouth, was a total turn on. 




    What didn't work for me was that I felt Alana's character lacked depth. I couldn't really get into her. She's supposed to appear as a bit cold, and I get that. But, I think more could have been done with her character to make her a bit more likable. 




    The other thing that I felt could have been expanded on was Chandler's need for kink. The sex they had was hot, but in the beginning of the book, she goes to a sex club to get him. Clearly, he needs that or likes it, but it was never really expanded on after that. I thought that was strange. I mean, I'm a bit over bondage, but I think it could have been tied in a bit more than just binding her hands and blind folding her. I could be alone in that thought, but again, it felt like it was a forgotten need. 




    The Gamble brothers are the perfect kind of heroes for me. They're all incredibly sexy and definitely alphas. I'm so glad I've gotten to see them all fall in love. And the epilogue was perfect. I have hopes that maybe we might get to see them again somewhere, somehow. If you haven't read this series yet, you must! It will fulfill your sexy read needs!




    Quotes:
    ~"It's not going to be someone else. It'll be no one else but me."-Loc 939

    ~"Did I hurt you, Alana?"
    "No!" Her eyes flew open. A faint flush stained her cheeks. 
    "Quite the opposite. It's just that was...wow. I think you screwed a few of my brain cells out of me."-Loc 2009

    ~"You'll never have to give away a piece of you to me," he said. "But you can have as many pieces of me as you want. You can have all of me, for forever."-Loc 2466

    So, I have to say that I am totally surprised at my adoration of this book. I mean, I loved the first two in this series. I really thought for sure that the second one would be my favorite, after all this one is about the oldest brother. But OMGosh does this book just work. And it works you! Why can there not be more Gamble brothers? Only three? I am going to go through withdrawal!




    Blurb from Goodreads:
    A sexy category romance from Entangled’s Brazen imprint...
    He can protect her from everyone except himself.
    Alana Gore is in danger. A take-no-prisoners publicist, her way with people has made her more than a few enemies over the years, but a creepy stalker is an entirely different matter. She needs a bodyguard, and the only man she can ask is not only ridiculously hot, but reputed to have taste for women that goes beyond adventurous.

    She needs protection. He needs satisfaction. And the moment the line is crossed, all hell will break loose..




    Not a big fan of the covers of these books. They are rather generic. But, the phrase don't judge a book by it's cover definitely fits in this book!




    If you haven't read the first two books in this series, no worries. While it might be nice to understand the relationship of the brothers and a few other characters, it's not necessary. Lynn does a good job with describing how they are intertwined and you can just read this and be happy with it.




    Alana, we've met her before. She was Chad's publicist in book #2. And she wasn't really liked then! In this book we certainly see a different side of her. She's much more vulnerable than she would ever let on. She comes off as tough as nails, which she is, but she has this side to her that feels guilty about what she's done to get to where she needs to be. She's always been more of a loner but in this book we see a totally different side of her. She takes care of her needs in this book. And she goes after what she wants, although she denies it for a while just to get us worked up.




    Chandler, I wasn't sure I would like him with his bruteness and long hair. But honestly I grew to totally enjoy him in this book. He hard ass for sure, but he's got this softer side that you would never see coming. I was not expecting him to be so caring. And sexy. I didn't think I would find him swoon worthy but holy moly he becomes just that. What I saw in the other books was not what he became in this book at all! He's refreshing and not like what you would imagine. I thought for sure he was like Chad with his fear of commitment but he's so different than what I thought!




    We see old characters in this book. It was nice to know their back stories but not totally necessary. I think that is one of the things I love about this series. You can definitely read them as stand alones. And Lynn makes the book fast paced and suspenseful. Definitely more than the prior books. Of course Chandler is in that profession, being a body guard and owning such a business. It was fun to watch them figure out just exactly who was stalking Alana (although I will admit I figured it out when that character was introduced).




    And holy moly, the sex. If you do not like sex scenes, you cannot read this book. They had me blushing at some parts. And while this is not total erotica, it certainly has some of those elements. And Chandler, who has had some more freaky tastes in the past (from what we know about him from books 1 and 2) really takes on a different way about him when it comes to being with Alana. He bowes to her needs and wants and what he thinks she needs. It's sweet and totally irresistible.




    Lynn infuses a sexy and steamy romance into a thrilling ride. I love her writing and how it flows so well. Her pacing is on key and you itch to know exactly where this book is going and how it will end.




    If you like hot sex scenes, banter, and overall swooniness, then you need to read Lynn's books. She has an amazing way of making you feel sexy and vulnerable and down right hot!

    I have been waiting for Chandler's book for a while now! After seeing his and Alana's brief meeting in Chad's book, I could not wait to read their story as I knew it would be fun, sexy, and downright HOT!

    Pacing: I felt the pacing was great on this one. J.Lynn jumps right in with the attraction between Alana and Chandler, but it didn't feel forced at all. In fact, it was downright hot! Alana wants to hire him for his bodyguard services though- not his ah, other ones.

    Storyline: The storyline in this one was a lot of fun. Being in public relations and repairing self images, Alana Gore hasn't earned the best reputation. She's damn good at her job, but the way she has gone about it hasn't always been the gentlest. She blackmailed Bridget, Chad Gamble's now fiancé and hasn't quite been forgiven.

    After receiving threatening letters, she knows she has to do something as her safety is on the line. She gets in touch with the eldest Gamble brother to enlist his protection services. She goes to extreme lengths to track him down and I was dying laughing at how bold and brazen Alana is! Upon going to Chandler for his help, she knows a physical relationship with him would be highly inappropriate, but sometimes propriety be damned! The two get even closer as Alana's threats become more than just letters. Alana is quite headstrong and determined, but this stalker has got even her shaken up and Chandler won't let her endanger herself so he brings her to stay with him. I really like the suspense of finding out who was behind everything, even though I had my suspicions of who it was.

    Their attraction and sexual tension is off the charts, but Alana has some deeper issues that keep her from going all in with Chandler.

    Characters: I really enjoyed Alana and Chandler. Chandler was such a great guy and I am so glad we got his book because he deserves happiness too. He's not jaded like his brothers are. He doesn't let his parents crap relationship affect his own. He has chosen not to do serious relationships, not because he felt he wasn't good enough for one, but just because he hasn't found the right one to settle down with. However, meeting Alana has really been the game changer for him. He loves her no-nonsense attitude and that she's tough as nails. However, Alana has a vulnerable side as we see here. She's a runner, as she's afraid of ending up like her mother, who was obsessed with the idea of being in love- only to have it break her heart. Alana tries her best to keep Chandler from getting too close, but when Chandler wants something- he goes after it!

    Final Thoughts: I enjoyed this one a lot. I love how sexy and steamy the romance was and the storyline was engaging from start to finish. J.Lynn is one of my auto-buy authors, as the woman can do no wrong!

    Worth the wait, book three in the Gamble brothers stories. A stand alone book about Chandler and Alana. It would be a good idea to read the first two books by this author first: Tempting the Best man and Tempting the Player. This way you can understand Alana's charcter better. you will hate her after book two but you will love her in this book. There is humor, romance, drama, conflict and a HEA. A nice quick enjoyable read, I would definitely recommend it.

    4 stars - Sexy Chandler refuses to let her run...he chases!


    First Impressions...
    I'm sure it's no big surprise that I'm a huge JLA fan. If she writes it, then I will read it. Period. This particular series is more sexy than I'm normally comfortable with but I loved it still. The cover isn't my favorite - it reminds me of a book I didn't like much. But it's all JLA and I loved it.

    The Characters...
    Of course I love Chandler. He's seriously yummy if not a bit kinky. He's not afraid of his heart or of what it could mean when he feels things for Alana. Never met the right women to bring out those feeling is all. I loved that about him. The boy has skills too. He heats up the bedroom (or any room really) and the kitchen. He can cook! He's protective and don't threaten his girl cause that just makes him mad. Hehe. Love Chandler.

    As for Alana, she took a while for me to like. Still stinging from what she did to Chad's girl, I didn't like her. But as I got to know her and why she's the way she is, I started to get her. I thought is was cute that she ran. Kinda silly to run away from a security guy who's used to finding peeps but whatever. She did turn out to be cute. She's constantly telling Chandler that this isn't appropriate. Yeah, he teaches her how to be really inappropriate. They are definitely fun together.

    The Story...
    Someone is threatening Alana. She needs Chandler to protect her. But with their history and the attraction between the two them, things get fun fast. The heat level is HIGH with a side of kink. I enjoyed how Chandler figured her out and then protected her from the person threatening her and her own silly fears. Their story is great.

    Could I Put It Down...
    I put it down about a third in and then finished the next morning.

    In The End...
    A great addition to the Gamble Brothers series and anyone who loves the brazen line will love it too. All three of these books can be read stand alone.
