From the time I was a kid, I knew I wanted a job helping people. After serving in the Rifles regiment of the British Army, I focused my civilian career on becoming a bodyguard to the rich and famous. For a Cockney Brit, I never imagined a twist of fate landing me a position in the United States Secret Service and protecting the President’s son. But then my boss made an unexpected request: leave my current placement to move in with his only daughter to give an added layer of protection against the threats she had been receiving. I’d never lived with a woman who was off-limits to me. It wasn’t just that Caroline had a boyfriend. She was my best friend’s sister, and my boss’s daughter. But the longer we’re in such close quarters together, the greater the temptation grows, but I know I'll lose everything if I pursue her.
Growing up as the only girl with two overbearing older brothers, I’m no stranger to being overprotected. Just as I finished up college and prepared to truly dip my toes into the adult world, my father was elected President of the United States, which added a whole new level of protection with the Secret Service team attached to me. Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly be more smothered, I began receiving threats, and my family decided it wasn’t enough to just have an agent living down the hall from me. Nope, I was to have one move in with me, and not just any agent, but Ty Frasier—my brother, Barrett’s best friend, and my brother, Ty’s, head agent. While most women would enjoy living with a sexy, buff Brit, having a roommate threw a wrench into all my plans. Especially when I began noticing Ty was so much more than a hot guy—he was someone I could fall for.

“He was like James Bond on steroids in his tux. I was used to the suit porn he sported on a daily basis, but man, there was something about the fit of the black tux that made me all warm and tingly.”
I really have enjoyed this series and these characters. Not just because I enjoy politics but because the dynamic in this family is heart-warming. This one is a bit more slow burn than the previous two books, and I think that worked really well for these two. I loved watching them get closer and realize their feelings for each other is a lot more than they expected. Ty and Caroline have an enormous amount of chemistry together. They were the perfect match for each other. I loved getting to see the rest of the family as well. After a long string of darker, more out of the box, mind fucking books this one was exactly what I needed to cleanse that pallet and just enjoy the story and the romance of it all. I love Katie and her writing. I hope you check this series out.
