My thoughts: I give it ❤️❤️❤️❤️. Geoffrey, who invented a dating app that made him very wealthy, is a social media star. He parties with his large group of “friends” almost every night; he posts what he’s going to wear and where he’s going, and his groupies follow.
When Geoffrey is drugged at a nightclub and ends up at his house with no memory of how he got there or who undressed him, he’s freaked out enough to hire a bodyguard.
I want a Sven.
Sven is a modern-day Viking with a heart of gold. He’s big and intimidating-looking, but he cuddles babies and plays Frisbee golf. Geoffrey has wanted Sven for ages and is not shy about showing his desires. But Sven is reluctant to get together with a small, slight man (he has reasons, although Geoffrey is SO his type), much less a client. But Sven’s rules fly out the window once he gets to know the real Geoffrey, the one who takes care of his brother and has a smile for everyone.
I loved the dialogue, the plentiful steamy times (Sven and Geoffrey are ridiculously hot together), and the tentative HEA ending.
The sense of danger never overshadowed the romance; the story was nicely balanced to include both the suspense-driven plot and the relationship.
I think I’ve found myself a new series.
Geoffrey Ralse is known for being the life of the party. He loves the club scene, hanging with his friends, and flirting with whomever catches his eye. He certainly isn’t going to stop living his life just because some would-be stalker starts sending him threats.
But it all changes when Geoffrey is drugged and wakes up half naked in his own home with a new message from his stalker.
He needs help and there’s only one person he trusts…
Protective Agent Sven Larsen has been fighting Geoffrey’s flirtatious advances for months, even though he’s impossibly drawn to the man. There’s no way he can be around him twenty-four/seven and not finally crack. But one look at Geoffrey’s haunted eyes, and he knows there’s no way he’s letting Geoffrey walk out of Ward Security without him.
Even if it means breaking his own rules, he will keep Geoffrey safe.
Trigger warning: There is a very short section with sexual assault that some could find upsetting.
