Review: 'Bodyguard' by Jessica Linden (2016)

The most eligible bachelor on Capitol Hill has met his match.

Abbie Whitmore is good at her job. She knows how to protect people, and she's always right--until Congressman Jonathan Lassiter comes along. The presidential hopeful refuses to believe that his politics have put him in danger, yet Abbie's determined to keep him safe. But how can she protect him while she's guarding her heart?

Quite some time ago now I was contacted by a publisher and introduced to 'BookShots', a new way of reading developed by world-famous author James Patterson. I hadn't heard of BookShots before, but they're basically small and light books you can finish in one sitting that will keep you on the edge of your seat; short, fast-paced, high-impact entertainment. I read my first BookShots read, 'Little Black Dress', a few weeks ago (click here to read my review) and more recently had the pleasure of reading 'The Mating Season', 'Sacking the Quarterback' and 'Dazzling' (click here to read my review). Today I'm excited to share my review of another BookShots example with all of you, another romance read, namely 'Bodyguard' by Jessica Linden!

Congressman Jonathan Lassiter is determined to get re-elected, no matter what, but after working on legislation against human trafficking he finds himself a target of attacks during his campaign. This is where Abbie Whitmore, fierce and determined bodyguard, comes in. Abbie is hired to protect Jonathan, but the congressman finds it difficult to believe that others are out to hurt him. It doesn't take long before Jonathan realises the truth, though, but it also doesn't take long for Abbie to see she's not just guarding this wonderful man, but also protecting herself from possibly getting hurt on this latest job...

'Bodyguard' is a romantic suspense story that focuses on bodyguard Abbie who has a new job taking care of politician Jonathan. Jonathan doesn't really believe he is in much danger and it's going to be a challenge for Abbie to not just convince him of this but to also stay professional, because it's difficult to ignore the chemistry between her and her new client. Like the other BookShots reads I've had the pleasure of diving into so far, this is a fast-paced read of roughly 140 pages that held my interest for approximately 1 to 2 hours. Author Jessica Linden has done a great job writing a captivating romance story with two interesting characters at its core and I wouldn't mind reading more about these two, especially since I enjoyed the political setting a lot more than I originally thought I would.

I have to say I'm really starting to look forward to any new BookShots release; the small books are so easy to take with you and guarantee a good read in which there's more than enough going on to keep your attention. It has also provided me with the chance to discover some new authors, such as Jessica Linden, who I'd love to read more from. All in all, 'Bodyguard' is another entertaining, fast-paced and fascinating BookShots read I thoroughly enjoyed picking up and I can really recommend this series to anyone who travels a lot or just prefers short, quick and action-packed reads.
