This stalker plot romance has a steamy core

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oooh boy that was steamy, and downright filthy in the best way.

But, as with every erotica Roe writes, there’s a solid story backing up the sexy times and here it’s an interesting twist on the bodyguard trope.

My one niggle is that I felt it all ended a bit abruptly, given the long build up to the stalker plot.

But that’s the one thing that I have any quarms about. Everything else was a hot adventure through a needy Boy and his somewhat reluctant Daddy.

There’s some light BDSM, a lot of the control Michael needs and a wee bit of bratish rebellion.

The stalker plot worked for me, I felt it was well within the realms of possibility. The ending was sweet but just felt like it cut off a bit suddenly.

Having said that, as this started life as a couple of freebie shorts and has turned into a cracking good tale, I’m just gonna be grateful Roe wrote it in the first place.

Ella Frank knows how to spin a tale

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ella Frank knows how to spin a tale, drawing the reader in and making them want to know everything about her characters.

That’s one of the reasons why it’s frustrating for me to read her books when they end on a cliff hanger like this one does 😁

I knew there would be one, it’s become the usual path not only for her solo efforts but also for the books she writes with Brooke Blaine.

And it works, she has me wanting to read them even when I know I’ll be left desperately needing the next installment.

Here she’s outdone herself, because this book is about Sean Bailey and Alexander Thorne. Two men regular readers already know quite well.

Personally, I thought the way she showed Sean becoming aware of Xander as a man he was attracted to, despite identifying as ‘straight’ up to this point, felt very organic.

I believed in his journey completely, and while this book touches only the very start of the relationship, the UST explodes out of the forced proximity situation in spades.

I’m intrigued to see where/how the stalker element travels in book two and what will be the key plotline for that entry.

Bring it on!

Xander

If I had to describe Sean Bailey, it would be: a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. Never in that equation would I ever include the word boyfriend—and not just because he’s straight.

The older brother of my life-long best friend, Sean is a detective for the Chicago PD, and is also known as Detective “Dick” for being…well, a surly, temperamental pain in everyone’s ass. He also happens to be the best they have, which is why I find myself on his doorstep the night my life is threatened by an anonymous stalker.

I only wanted the name of a bodyguard; I didn’t expect for Sean to volunteer for the job. Now, not only do I have a bodyguard, I also have a fake boyfriend.

Sean

It must be so hard to be Alexander Thorne, the number one prime-time news anchor in the country, with millions of dollars and a car that costs more than my house. I mean, I’m allowed to give him a hard time about it, but when some creep decides to cross the line and go after him, they’re gonna have to answer to me.

Going undercover has never been an issue in the past, so I don’t see why there’d be a problem now. Xander and I have known each other for years, so this should be a breeze. Except suddenly my stomach’s flipping when he looks my way, and my body comes alive whenever he brushes by me. I know I’m good at my job and playing a character and all, but this is getting out of hand.

I can’t be sure that either of us are playing anymore.
