Summary

“You want to keep kissing me?” 

“All the time...” 

Nathan Hayes is tough, and he takes his assignments seriously. When he’s assigned to guard his boss’ daughter, there’s nothing more he wants than to do his job. Day after day, he watches her. Little by little, he discovers that she’s unlike any other he’s ever met. 

While nursing her heart from a recent heartbreak, Hannah Collins believes relationships aren’t meant for her and vowed to never get involved with a man again. 

However, their lives suddenly turned on its head when a tragedy forces them on a road trip, and as the odds stack up against Hannah, she has no choice but to ride through the series of events that end up breaking her heart once again. 

While on the run, Hannah is determined to fight the growing attraction she feels for her bodyguard. Nathan goes all out to keep her safe, even letting his guard down. But he can’t seem to deny the effect she has on his troubled soul. And she can’t seem to keep the distance between them, when her life is constantly at risk. 

But just how long is Hannah able to ignore the attractive man who is willing to risk it all - even his heart - to keep her safe? 

Forbidden kisses. Gunfights. Family drama. Secret lovers. My Possessive Bodyguard is a roller-coaster ride you surely don’t want to miss. Buy the audiobook now.

Average writing & narration, good story

I love bodyguard romances and was excited to receive a free audio version of this story, in exchange for an honest review. I've tried to think on what exactly is not hitting the mark with me, but I think it's a combination of narrator style (robotic at times, slower pace) and writing style (which feels simplistic and average most of the time.) I wasn't turned off, but I wasn't wowed either.

Easy listening enjoyable storyline

Really enjoyed this book!
Listened in one go as the storyline was gripping.
Was light and easy to listen to.
I’d be interested to listen to a book 2 re the brothers gun shot and business or the mother’s story?

A good listen.

I liked this. It had a few good suspenseful and dramatic scenes that made the story exciting. The romance was sweet. I would have liked to have seen a build up a sexual tension between Nathan and Hannah rather than just being told she kissed him when she was drunk. Their relationship felt a bit rushed as a result. I was expecting Nathan to be a lot more jealous and possessive because of the title but he was really more protective than anything else. I listened to this book in one day. The narration was good and enjoyable.
I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy.

Enjoyed this book

There was a little bit of action/danger and not a lot of angst between the main characters. I enjoyed all the characters (except the “bad guys”). This was fun and flirty. I really liked the relationships in this book. HEA. Narration was great. I recommend this book.

Bodyguard Romance

My Possessive Bodyguard is my first book by Jamilexis Gallardo, and it was great. Nathan and Hannah, are both very appealing characters, I love the progression of their relationship, and that the steam didn't start right away. It was a little predictable at certain times but still wonderfully-written. Overall this was an enjoyable listen with some twists. I was given this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

enjoyable

I did enjoy this book. Overall the story kept me reading. There was however room for improvement especially in the narration. Two narrators would have been far better as the one female narrator tried but failed with the male voice.

Fantastic storyline

I love the chemistry between these characters. They have a great dynamic. An unexpected twist at the end there as well. Connie gives a brilliant performance.

He protected what was his with all he had!

A family under stress, brings in bodyguards to protect the individual family members.
One is attracted to his assignment, but she is also attracted to him.
Due to circumstances, they are pushed together, alone, familiarity arises with close quarters.
However, ideals are still intact, until..
Yes it's a story worth reading/listening to. I found the narrator on the audiobook, did an excellent job of portraying the various characters, adding a further dimension to the overall experience.

Really love this book!

This is my 3rd time reading this book but 1st listening to it. Connie Shabshab did an amazing job narrating this book. The only thing I wish was that there was a man to do the male voices instead.

Good Fast Listen

I enjoyed the story. The author did a good job! Some twists and turns in the story.
I was not a fan of the narrator. She changed voices on the main male lead. Then it founded weird half way through. She didn’t differ in the voices well for the characters. Idk. Just wasn’t a fan of her style. But the book was still good.
Worth a listen if you like the protector style of romance.

Great romantic suspense

At first I didn't know if the title really represented the story. I was thinking it just seemed like a story about the daughter of a celebrity and her bodyguard and they have an attraction. Then as the story went on and more danger was near I saw the possessiveness and holy alpha male! Talk about hot! He was never out of line. He was her protector. Hannah is the daughter of a famous movie star. Nathan is her bodyguard ever since her brother was shot. Pretty soon Nathan is her life line. They have a little bit of a history. She did kiss him months back as she was drunk after her ex and her broke it off. There is someone now after Hannah wanting to hurt her and Nathan will risk his own life to make sure she is safe. Throw in a guy best friend to make him jealous and then sexual chemistry these two can't deny and you have a crazy romantic adventure. Then be ready to be blow away by a truth that makes everything so clear. I loved this story. I hope there is more from the supporting characters.This is a must read/listen for all romance and suspense fans. This narrator was the perfect voice for this story. She had me hanging on to each word.

Bodyguard that protects the body and the heart!

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review.. The author and the narrator are new to me and I am impressed. The narrator makes the story flow smoothly thereby creating a listening pleasure. She gives the characters distinctive voices and brings them to life.

The author has written a book containing mystery, drama, sexual tension, heartbreak, terror, forgiveness, comedy, friendships, and love. Nathan is willing give his life in order to protect Hannah. Hannah is strong but vulnerable. I enjoyed how the author develops these characters. She also gives the listener an intriguing plot development. I highly recommend this Audible book.

A Romantic Suspense!

This was my first Jamilexis Gallardo's book, and won't be my last. Nathan and Hannah's story is suspenseful, sweet, and sexy. The storyline is fast-paced and twisted. I love the ending. Connie Shabshab is a new narrator to me. She has a great voice, easy to understand. She did a great job with the narration. #AudiobookUnleashed

Great story with twists and turns!

The story is great. Keeps the reader interested and enthralled. The narration was not the best, on occasion almost sounds like a child’s voice. It makes the heroine sound weak and almost disappoints me when she shows how strong and forgiving she is. Great listen, I would definitely recommend this book..

Good story but...

The story seemed long winded initially. (Hannah eats when she's nervous...which is frequent in the book.)

It picks up steam after awhile. The frequent physical descriptions after awhile took away from the story for me at some times. Yes, it's important to have a physical description, but after awhile, it felt redundant.

Dual narration could have made this story pop more. The male voice wasn't convincing for me. The female characterization was better, conveying Hannah's initial awkwardness and naivete, where her maturity showed throughout the audiobook.

I had to try multiple times to finish listening to this, but it was worth it.

Not a spoiled brat!

As the daughter of a famous movie star, I thought the main character would be a self absorbed brat. I’m so glad I was wrong! When the danger started to heat up she was able to stand tall and hold her own. With a sexy personal bodyguard by her side it was no surprise they were falling for each other.

Perfect mix of romance with mystery and suspense mixed in. Loved it!
