    • I quit at 17% (wouldn't normally rate but) when I realised I couldn't go a whole page without highlighting at least one WTF point, and continuing while laptop was near enough to tempt updates was probably annoying people! Continuing at all was annoying me.'Bodyguard' appears to mean 'Babysitter' as in putting you to bed (naked), dragging you from bed (physically), cooking you food (with the 'something' that blends food while sounding like a blender), oh and quite possibly trying to drown you! (C [...]


    • Before you attempt to hit me with a tomato or dildo you should know that I hit back, often and HARD! I was really excited to read this *shushes then kisses Emma and Vivian*I'm a SUCKER for SM's books. I own over 70d that's why I FING HATED this book. If you've read:FoundSnaredOwnedBoiling PointHoarse PlayYou've ALREADY read this damn book. DON'T BOTHER. It's just rinse & repeat. She changes the MC's names but it's the same shit: hapless submissive meets know it all Dom. I am SICK of it. This [...]


    • 2.5 starsSo far 2016 is not a good book year for me. I keep choosing the wrong books. I know I’m picky, but this makes me sad.There were parts of this that had some really good hurt/comfort going on, but overall I wasn’t too happy with this book.The relationship between Rye and Jeff didn’t flow naturally from bodyguard, to friendship, to love. It jumped right from bodyguard to love and it felt unrealistic.I wouldn't be comfortable walking around naked with my bodyguard for one. And if I wa [...]


    • 3 StarsAs a major sucker for any kind of bodyguard trope in my romance reads this story worked well for me.I had some minor issues with the writing style, predominantly where the dialogue was concerned (i.e. many of the issues discussed, and many of the particular words used, were repeated by the MCs ad nauseam), but I liked the story in general, and the characters and their burgeoning romance were sweet and heart-warming, regardless of how unrealistic the circumstances may have been.This was my [...]


    • This was one of the other kind of Sean Michael's book. The sweet kind. Jeff is a fucked up mess, freshly clean from rehab and Rye is hired in as his bodyguard who needs to keep him clean. See Jeff is miserable, like huddle in the bed, no eating, no talking kind of miserable. He's pale and too skinny and just a hot mess. All because (I think) in his career he's a hard rock, vampire playing maniac. And he's not anything like that. I never really understood where it all went totally downhill and he [...]


    • This must have been better than just ok because I couldn't put it down. On the other hand, several plot threads weren't resolved on page. boo


    • I enjoyed this, I'd like a Rye of my own, such a sweetie! Rye is a bodyguard hired to keep musician Jeff/LJ/Lord January from falling back onto his dependence on drugs once he goes on tour. Got a bit mushy towards the end.


    • Lord January, aka LJ aka Jeff Smart is just coming home out of 8 months of rehab. He had been entered into the program after his heart stopped – twice – due to the drugs he took to help him maintain his persona.Rye is a bodyguard enlisted to aid LJ stay safe and sober – 24-7. They immediately find they are more than client/employee and Rye swiftly begins to care deeply for the beleaguered and confused LJ.LJ/Jeff is a mathemeatician and musician who has fallen into his role as the vampire/d [...]


    • Okay. Yes. I loved it. I loved every little bit about it. The perfect amalgam of many sweet components.And it’s admittedly bizarre that – despite the different setup – certain, very particular things are almost copies from Touching Evil. The backgammon playing, the bad scarring on the protector’s thigh… Even his penchant for cooking and his care-taking ways. I wouldn’t have noticed if I hadn’t finished that book earlier just before starting this one.Then of course there are plenty [...]


    • This may be my fav Sean Michael book to-date. Not an action-packed read, but the character development and interaction had a depth that led to a great amount of empathy for them. There is just something about a person who cares enough to save you from yourself that resonates with me. Jeff's fragility was heartbreaking on so many levels, and the fact that Rye could see through the ugly exterior armor that comprised Lord January was touching and beautiful. Big sighI'm such a sap for an HEA.





    • Review can be read at It's About The Book2.5 starsRye manages to land himself a really great job guarding Lord January from overzealous fans as well as himself. When Rye goes to pick Lord January, LJ, up from rehab he was expecting something more. More than an underweight, obviously overwhelmed guy trying to hide from the world in his bedroom. Rye does what he can to begin drawing LJ from his shell, including using his name, Jeff. It rapidly becomes apparent the Lord January character has become [...]


    • 2.5 stars I managed to finish this book, even though it took its toll on me. This constant feeding, cooking, talks about swimming, moving, not being January, then feeding again…It was boring and annoying and if it wasn’t for the way the MCs went from becoming friends to ending up as lovers, I wouldn’t have given even this rate. The book might have depicted some real life situations/characters and some people could be perfectly fine reading about an adult with baby-like behavior but I simpl [...]


    • Normally every book I finish gets at least 3 points, because if I finished it, it couldn't have been that bad. So yeah, I finished this one, but only because I left out every other page. Badass giant of a bodyguard/babysitter is supposed to protect a goth-singer without any backbone whatsoever who just came out of rehab. Seriously, that boy doesn't need a bodyguard who hops into bed with him, but a psychologist


    • I have read a lot of bodyguard books lately. So to be fair, I may be burned out. But I didn't like this one. The bodyguard Rye, immediately falls in love with his self destructive charge, Jeff. He never gets frustrated with Jeff and Jeff magically get better because Rye believes in him. I'll try another Sean Micheals book. This one just wasn't for me. 2 stars


    • This was my first Sean Michael book and, based on the book and other's reviews it's going to be my last. I had a lot of issues with some of the attitudes in the book plus it was very repetitive, and needed better betas and/or editing. Not for me.


    • Not what I was expecting from this author but I loved it. A messed up kid living the rock scene just out of rehab and a bodyguard trying to show him there is a better life. Sweet, funny and a little heartbreaking with a HEA.




    • 4 star reveiw by Roberta So, when I read the blurb for this book, I was intrigued. I wondered if this would be another bad boy rocker/alpha bodyguard book. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with this book.Jeff Smart aka Lord January (LJ) is this really sweet, kind guy who has his life taken over by the Goth Rocker lifestyle. At the beginning of this story we see Jeff getting ready to leave rehab after 8 months. Jeff feels safe finally. He realizes that LJ is just going to kill him. H [...]


    • The setup for this book was decent. The description catches your attention, and the first few chapters are intriguing enough to keep you wanting more.Unfortunately, the book itself was a letdown. The plot wasn't bad - it's the delivery that was so disappointing. At first, it seems there is the possibility for chemistry between the characters. Especially with one of them being the protector of the other. Except, the interactions between them felt completely bland, and I never felt like there was [...]


    • Rye Sommers specializes in long time private protection. He’s a hardcore bodyguard for those who can afford his skills. The longer the job the better as far as Rye is concerned. His latest employer is none other than the Vampire King himself, Lord January. Well, technically it’s his manager Donna Heard who hired Rye because Lord January or LJ is fresh out of rehab after eight months. A nasty wake-up call after his heart stopped twice sent the pseudo vampire king for help.LJ comes home a frai [...]


    • It wasn't bad, however, how many times I have to read these freaking 2 words… eat something!I don't know if I would like to be with someone like Jeff for the rest of my life , it was exhausted just to read about him.He has issues with drugs, depression, eating disorder he is practically anorexic and stupid on top of that. He doesn't even know how much money he has or how much he really earns.He is full dependable or other people to survive, he needs someone to hold his hand constantly, he need [...]


    • I have to admit I've been avoiding this author for a while because he tends to have lots and lots of sex and a little thin on plot and character development. But I was pleasantly surprised with this book to find an achingly sweet book. Jeff is so vulnerable and sweet and Rye is the perfect alpha male. There were some very hot and slightly kinky sex scene but there was lots of Rye caring and protecting his charge. There was no over the top drama or bad plot twist just a very soft romantic buildin [...]


    • *2.5 stars*OK, this should have been right up my alley. Goth/vampire rock star? Yes, please. As it turns out, no thanks. It's not a bad book, really. It fell a little short, for me. The relationship between Jeff and Rye felt a little off. Too forced, maybe? I don't know. I'm sure after only knowing each other a matter of days, Rye was being far too familiar in his role as bodyguard!It did all get kind of repetitive in the last third. I needed angst!


    • I love all of Sean Michael's books and I was not disappointed by this one. I absolutely loved this story. It's very sweet. My heart broke a few times right along with the LJ/Jeff. He overcame so much to finally discover who he really was and his love for Rye and Rye's love for him is what made him whole in the end.


    • I found the relationship between the MCs to be rather squicky. There's a huge power imbalance with one feeding, dressing, washing and pretty much keeping the other one from the rest of the world. He even starts telling the other one what to do with his career. It's written to be benign but it gave me the creeps.


    • I usually like sweet books, but this one was just waaay too much. I just can't wrap my head around the fact that Rye was portrayed as one big mean looking guy, but the moment he meets Jeff, he treats him like some kind of porcelain doll. Halfway through the book I basically had enough. It felt like way too much repetition and I basically skimmed the rest of the book.
