I was a washed-up, alcoholic, disgraced cop, so imagine my surprise when I landed a gig as the private bodyguard for Corey Duvette, international rockstar and guitar god? Seriously, I used to worship this guy when I was a teenager! Everybody wants a piece of him…his fans, his manager, his bandmates, his ex…even me.
But as much as I'd like to, I can't put him in that position…or any other positions, for that matter.
I'm just here to do a job.
It's not my fault that he looks like an innocent angel and a broken boy all at the same time. That's why he needs someone like me looking out for him, protecting him, keeping him safe.
But can I keep things professional between us?
I've been performing on stage in front of thousands of people almost every night of my life since I was nineteen. Living in the public eye means I get hounded everywhere I go. I have zero privacy. I'm exhausted, but my greedy manager and loser bandmates rely on me to keep cranking out hits. To keep going full throttle—and keep everyone happy—I turned to the rock & roll cliché of nonstop booze and drugs. I'm being pulled in every direction. I feel like I'm falling apart.
I'm ready for a change. I want something real.
After getting stabbed by a random psycho and almost dying, my manager wants to hire a bodyguard for me. I don't care if he's big and strong and sexy as hell—I don't want some meathead with an earpiece following me everywhere I go. I already have no privacy as it is!
But maybe…just maybe…Max is different? All I know is that the thought of dealing with everything in my life while trying to stay sober terrifies me.
I can't do it alone.
