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...

Hello Chandler! We finally get to meet the oldest Gamble Brother, and wow, does he give his little brothers a run for their money. This story is just as sexy, and irresistible as the other two Gamble Brother books. With the J. Lynn snark I love, sexy times, and a story line I couldn't get enough of, Tempting The Bodyguard just might be my favorite Gamble Brother book yet. Which I didn't think was possible. Like the previous books, this is a book that I devoured in one sitting.

Oh Chandler! This confident, strong, alpha male isn't afraid of much. He's secure in who he is, what he's capable of, and doesn't shy away from his sexual desires. When Alana Gore, the feisty, fiery one time publicist to his brother Chad comes back into his life, the sexual tension, and snark begins to fly. WOW, does it ever fly. I wouldn't except anything else when you mix an uptight character like Alana, who has nerves of steal, and isn't afraid to do whatever it takes to get the job done, and a dominant guy like Chandler who is essentially a walking model for sexual tension. Yeah, the sparks fly and things get so heated between these two, they could ignite the pages.

There's more to Chandler than sexiness, and I loved getting to see that other side to him. Just like his brothers, he's a layered character. The more I get to know him, the harder I end up falling for this character. Like his brothers, Chandler has found his match in the most unlikely girl. He will stop at nothing to win her over. Just like like his brother Chad, he doesn't take no for answer, and isn't afraid of the chase. Infact, the thrives on it. He will stop at nothing to get Alana. Trust me, once you see that romantic side of Chandler, you'll realize just how hard Alana had to fight to try and resist him. At least at first.....

Alana was a character I really enjoyed getting to know. There is so much more to her than just some tough of nails publicist that she was in Tempting the Player. In that book, she was far from my favorite character. I was surprised to find myself liking her the more I got to know her, because I had this image of her being a certain way. The more J. Lynn uncovered Alana's layers the easier it was to understand her. I liked seeing the whole other side to her. I like how J. Lynn addressed the after math of what happened between Alana, Chad and Bridget in Tempting the Player and the way it was dwelt with in this book. Given the fact that Chandler is Chad's brother, this was something that needed to be addressed. 

Alana is brilliant at what she does, but her toughness and her ability to go in and turn someone's reputation around is incredible, but has come at a high price. I liked seeing that more vulnerable side to Alana. Chandler and Alana compliment each other perfectly. They broke through each other's defenses, and in doing so, got under each other's skin, and made their ways into each other's hearts. I know that sounds cheesy, but whatever. I loved the way their story unraveled. Like the previous two books in this series, there is the perfect amount of sexiness, snark, and romance that I love and have come to except in a J.Lynn book. I swear I've said this with each of the Gamble Brother books, but I think this one might be my favorite one yet!
