The Baker's Bodyguard by Lori Ryan

From NY Times and USA Today bestselling author, Lori Ryan

This sexy and fun novella is the perfect read for the beach or a vacation!

Jesse Bradley never thought she'd need help going out into the world. But, after her sister was kidnapped, she started having trouble going anyplace alone. An anxiety attack crept up on her if a stranger asked her what time it was or someone smiled at her at the bus stop. Before she knew it, Jesse was making excuses to stay inside. Where things were safe.

Zach Harris is going to change all that. The steamy, sexy bodyguard gets her into counseling to help her overcome her fears. He goes with her everywhere helping her learn to feel safe again. And, he begins to feel things he never wants to feel with a client.

Jesse and Zach both feel the chemistry sparking between them. But will there be more than just chemistry for these two?

Lori's Sutton Capital Series is a steamy series with adult language. For a sweeter series, please see her Evers, Texas Series, beginning with Ever Hopeful.

4.5 star I was pulled right into this short story. The story has laughs, suspense, twists & turns, and heartbreak. If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first Legal Ease (Sutton Capital, #1) Penalty Clause (Sutton Capital, #2) This is Jesse and Zach’s story. Ever since Jesse’s sister was kidnapped and brought back home Jesse has had anxiety attacks. The have slowly gotten worst and worst. Zach is called in to help Jesse. She is moving to a new place and starting school so Zach will go and protect her and teach her how to defend herself. Only problem is there is so much sexually chemistry between these two they might just light the kitchen on fire. When weird things happen at school and Jesse somehow gets pulled into the crazy she uses the moves that Zach taught her to get out of the trouble. But after one perfect night and a few mistaken words the relationship that was forming goes south. Can Zach grovel his way back into Jesse’s heart or has she removed him from not only his job but her life? I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I highly recommend this book.

Ok book dissapointed only 74pgs. You pay 3.99 should have been longer. This book should have been free, they grab you by offering a free book from the same series thinking the rest of would be just as good, and wouldhave if longer.

I discovered this series during a book blast tour for the first book in the series, Legal Ease.  I didn't do a review during the tour, but the book nagged at me enough that when the second book, Penalty Clause came up for tour, I signed up for it and read and reviewed both of them.  The third book, Negotiation Tactics was a 5 star read for me and I was thrilled to see that there was a novella available. Ms Ryan was stupendous enough to send me this story upon my request for review. This is the story of Jesse, sister of Kelly from book one and Zach Harris, the bodyguard from book two.  It has been about 9 months since Kelly was kidnapped and recovered.  Unfortunately for Jesse, she is slowly becoming too afraid to go anywhere alone and too afraid to admit the truth to her family. She has even deferred her admittance into a prestigious culinary academy in New York where she planned on getting the training she needed to open her own bakery.  Luckily for Jesse, her mother starts to suspect that something is wrong and goes to Jack, Kelly's husband for advice and counsel. Jack knows just the bodyguard slash victims advocate who can help Jesse overcome her fears. This story about a woman overcoming her fears and learning to live again was beautifully written. The chemistry between Jesse and Zach is a slow build, as Jesse comes to terms with her fears and learns to trust herself again.  Zach is the right mix of tough guy, tough love and supportive friend.  This was a 4 star book and one that I am so glad I got to read.
