What will it cost this bodyguard to save the woman he loves?

Bodyguard, Tate Marshall, has always been the family troublemaker. Maybe it’s his impulsive propensity to get into the middle of problems that don’t belong to him. But once in, he can’t stop himself from trying to solve them and that includes his recent dilemma. He’s in love with the woman he’s supposed to protect, the beautiful Gloria, “Glo” Jackson, daughter of US Senator and presidential hopeful Reba Jackson. A member of the country band, the Yankee Belles, Glo was targeted in a recent terrorist attack designed to deter her mother from running.

Glo is as stubborn as her mother, and Glo isn’t about to hide from threats, at least the kind that won’t cost her heart. Because she’s already paid a terrible price for the war on terror, and she can’t let herself love a man who might die, especially because of her.
 As the campaign heats up and the threats deepen, so does the attraction between Tate and Glo. But when they’re discovered, and Tate is fired, what will he do to protect the woman he loves? 

And what will Glo do to keep from losing another man to the costs of war?

Note: Please let me know if my review seems rude / hurtful, as that is not my intention at all. 🙂

I really didn’t enjoy this book much, so I’m not sure what I’ll say for this review? Having read one of Warren’s books and really enjoyed it, I thought I would like Tate as well, but that didn’t turn out to be the case! The main characters (namely Tate and Glo) were really immature in regards to their relationship and excessively on one side or the other. They either passionately kissed… or had no idea if they wanted to be together, and quite frankly, it made me roll my eyes more than once.

Putting the romance aside (though it was a major part of the storyline), I did find the plot and Tate himself to be somewhat enjoyable to read about, so for the most part, the book kept my interest. And I thought Knox was a cool character to read about as well. I’m definitely now interested in reading his part of the story in book #1, having not read that yet.

Overall, not my cup of tea. If you typically enjoy Christian contemporary + suspense + a prominent romance plot, give this a chance! I do enjoy all of those things, but it still wasn’t for me. 2 stars.
