The single dad & the nanny …
Burned by an ex with a wandering eye, Austin Rhodes has sworn off women. His sole focus is his young daughter - and despite his good intentions, the little girl's live-in nanny. He hired Mia Atwood to care for his child but he finds himself lusting after her instead. Keeping his distance isn’t easy but he’s determined to be a gentleman.
Until Mia's past comes back to haunt her and she’s in need of Austin’s brand of protection. Suddenly she’s his in every sense of the word — and he’ll do whatever it takes to shield the woman who tempts him beyond reason.
What an amazing storyline. Twists and turns and love and heartache around every corner.
There seemed to be no end to the surprises in the story and I hope to read more from the security firm.
Carly is a one click author for me, and this story held up to what I expected to find in her work
Book 2 in the Bodyguard Bad Boys Series and for me this series is getting better with each book, I mean what’s not to love about a single dad who also happens to be a hot bodyguard.
Austin Rhodes is never doing relationships again the only girl in his life is his adorable little girl Bailey, but he needs a live in nanny and when Mia Atwood takes the job and moves he finds himself struggling to not cross any lines. Mia loves her job and she adores Bailey so she doesn’t want to do anything to jeopardise her job but the attraction and sizzling chemistry is hard to resist. Will these two cross the line and risk it all .... guess you need to read the book to find that out.
Carly Phillips certainly knows how to give us characters to fall in love with but once you add in an adorable little girl who has some great one liners you get the perfect story. I read this book in one sitting I was drawn in by the storyline and the strong personalities of all the characters, I needed to know how this love story ended. This book has the perfect mix of romance, passion, angst and a few twists to keep you turning the pages and if you love romance you will want to one click this book.
A Great Read
5 star review Tempt Me (Bodyguard Bad Boys #2) by Carly Phillips
Where do I start? This is a single father/nanny story about Austin Rhodes, Mia Atwood and an adorable little girl names Bailey (whom I loved).
I love alpha males who are strong, sexy and protective, throw on a cute little girl who just about melts my heart and I knew I was in for one awesome read.
Both Austin and Mia have fought their attraction for each other, neither wanting cross the line. They share sizzling hot looks and on occasion, some stolen kisses, so can they keep the chemistry between them from exploding particularly since neither of them really want to hold back.?
When Mia’s past comes back to haunt her, Austin knows that he must step in and protect not only her but his little girl Bailey. He is protecting on so many fronts, not just Mia’s past but his own as his ex-wife seeks to get custody when her plan to extract more money from him is met with no success. Not only does he have to protect Mia but he needs to protect Bailey from the mother she doesn't know and who doesn't really want her, unless it is as a pawn in her revenge against Austin.
The characters were easy to relate to and the steaminess when it occurred, off the charts as Austin and Mia sizzled together. This was one of those books I just didn’t want to put down or have end. This book runs the gauntlet of emotions and when you add in the suspense and danger it is truly a great read.
Ms. Phillips has written a story where the characters are strong and well written (Bailey is so cute she almost steals the book) and I will admit I was extremely sad when I finished the book.
