Ben is doing his job for an "X Factor rip-off" when he helps one of the contestants. Although he is intrigued by Daniel, Daniel also has a long-term boyfriend and seems to be happy. So Ben does what he can, and moves on. A couple of months down the line, and he gets a call from one of the boy band members saying that Daniel is in trouble and needs Ben. Ben goes off and does his thing, and the story really picks up as Daniel's story comes out and they deal with aftermath. One extra thing that I need to say is that I loved it when Kyle is talking to Ben, and he asks if Ben has "done an Adam" - brilliant :D This is a wonderful story that packs a punch in more ways than one. Ben and Daniel's relationship takes time to build, which makes it all the more sweet. With some steamy scenes in there to spice things up, this is a book to enjoy. Definitely recommended by me!

A big hunk of a bodyguard has a very sensitive side The Ex Factor is the second book in the Bodyguards Inc. series but it is also a standalone book with no cliffhanger. I really, really liked this book; the series just keeps getting better. While this book didn’t have quite the same suspense element that the first one had there were other things going that were just as dramatic. Ben is doing a stint as a bodyguard on an Ex Factor knock-off show. He was intrigued by Daniel from the start and admired his singing as he made his way into the top 3. He had no idea, however, how involved he would become in Daniel’s life. When he finds Daniel hiding in a room he knows that he has to help but he doesn’t know quite what the problem is. Daniel has been in an abusive relationship with Cam for several years. He’s sure that Cam really loves him and doesn’t mean to hurt him. Then things go too far and Daniel is left nearly unable to do the live performance for the top 3 show. When Ben finds him hiding, Daniel decides he’ll do nearly anything if Ben will help him get it together so he can perform. Ben is a big guy – 6’4” – but somehow Daniel knows that Ben would never hurt him; Ben makes him feel safe. I’m not sure I’ve read any other M/M books about an abusive relationship but there really isn’t any difference from an abusive M/F relationship. Daniel wants to believe the Cam really loves him and it takes one final heinous incident to finally make him see the light. Fortunately, Daniel has a very supportive family and Ben, to help him through this difficult time. This book took me through all kinds of emotions. It was so hard to read about the abuse that Daniel suffered but it was also inspiring to read how he overcame an addition to OTC drugs and managed to keep his singing career going. Ben was so patient and loving with Daniel, even before they have any kind of real relationship going; I just wanted to grab him and hug him. I also loved reading more of the non-relationship between Kyle and Ross. Their story comes in book 4 and I can’t wait to read it – right after I read book 3! *****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions*****
Another great series by Miss Scott. Even though each story is a standalone with the exception of characters being mentioned in passing or cameos, I'm writing an overall series review and each book easily deserves a 5 bookmark rating. Many of us have some kind of bodyguard fantasy and with Bodyguards, Inc the reader gets a peak into the life of the occupation. Each book has a little bit of everything, mystery, intrigue, drama, love, with definite levels of hotness throughout. You might be thinking that what you have here is the Kevin Costner/Whitney Houston movie Bodyguard with a gay twist, the truth is there are some similar elements but really, this series has so much more depth and appeal with every page. Some say that relationships that are born during times of crisis and danger are not always everlasting but I think relationships, be it friends or lovers, can be built at any time and in these tales the author shows us how true it can really be.
This is book two in the Bodyguards Inc series but you do not need to read in order. This one is about BI, employee Ben and his charge Daniel, an up and coming singer that Ben meets while working for a TV show in which Daniel placed third. During the first meet, Ben realizes that Daniel is in trouble but Daniel refuses help, the show ends but he doesn’t forget about the beautiful but damaged singer. Daniel realizes he’s in over he’s head and reaches out hoping against hope that the bodyguard will remember him because Daniel certainly remembered him. Unlike the first one I couldn’t get the personal connection between the two MC’s, not sure why? I liked how Ben was protective of Daniel, understanding Daniel and what’s he’s been through. How Ben even could relate to it on a personal level. But I couldn’t connect with Daniel, all the inner dialog, belittling himself, even after he got out of the relationship. All the people around him loving him, coming from such a loving family, I get we can’t explain how the children turn out but none if it fit for me. Then to jump into another relationship, without therapy or some sort of help, I like my characters to be a little less co-dependent a little more in charge even if they are playing the victim. However, just like the first BI book, I really enjoyed that we got an Epilogue that gave months down the road, in which we got the verdict to Cam’s case and the fact that Daniel is getting the help he needs as well as other details.To little to late for me though. I was given a copy of this book exchange for an honest review by Crystals Many reviews
