5 Primordial Goo Crowns
This novel. I don’t even know where to begin with how much I loved this book. Everything from the Zander and Aloha to the romance to the Morgan family just had me cheesing from the opening chapter.
Zander, the honorary Morgan brother, couldn’t have been more perfect. He is so layered – crazy funny man with Keane, protective bodyguard with Aloha Carmichael, man in love with Alohaha, wonderful son and brother to mama Shaw and his sister. Zander’s heart, like most of the Morgans, LARGE (like ALL parts of him). He wants love, actively seeks it out, and the way he pursues it and Aloha has me swooning. His ideas of love, as the evolve over the course of the novel, are the epitome of romance. He supports the whole and the broken parts of our heroine, wants to protect her as she chases her dreams, lies in the muck with her when she needs to, and revels in her successes. His pride in her, in their love, in themselves radiates from him. Everyone should be loved the way Zander loves. Everyone needs a #ZandyMan.
Aloha is comedic perfection. Being described as the female Keane is such an apt description. She provides the perfect, outlandish comedy over the course of the novel. As with any great character, though, she is more than this one role in the book. She exemplifies the struggle of growing up in the limelight, the feeling of being used by those who are supposed to love you, leaving her jaded. She doesn’t understand or believe in love, which makes her an unlikely, her perfect, companion for Zander, the man who falls quickly in love. Readers also get to see a woman who is a bit broken. We see her fall apart, but we also see how love holds her together, heals her, makes her stronger, more able to grasp the future she wants. Her evolution, with the support of Zander’s love exemplifies the power of true love, real romance.
These two are just hilarious, romantic, sexy. You get it all with them. I was laughing from the moment they start texting and I never stopped. Zander pursuing Aloha is sweet and sexy. Watching them fall in in love is pure joy. Seeing Aloha find a family with the crazy and lovable Morgan clan is fun and entertaining, and the homage to The Bodyguard is utter perfection. There isn’t one thing about this book I didn’t love. From the characters to the plot and pacing, I was captivated.
Books should make you happy. Romance books should make your swoon. Characters should make you want to be a part of their world. Mister Bodyguard and the entire Morgan Brother series (STANDALONES) hits every single one of these criteria. I never ever want this series to end!
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
A bodyguard, a beauty, and a bet.
“I’m hiring you to do more than guard her, Zander,” my new boss explained. “You’re gonna be her rock. Her human Valium. Her trusted friend. And she’s gonna be your mission from God.”
“So I’m her babysitter?”
“Her babysitter, her bodyguard, her f*cking service doggie. Whatever she needs or wants, that’s what you’ll be. Anything except her booty call.” The vein in my new boss’s neck bulged. “Touch her and I’ll do more than fire your ass, Zander. I’ll rip off your balls.”
My buddies laughed when I told them about my ridiculous new job. They said, “Three months on a tour with a world famous beauty, glued to her hip, catering to her every whim? A hundred bucks says you’re gonna break down and bang her within the first month.”
But I said nope. No way. Never. “I’m a professional,” I said. “Plus, she’s not even my type. And I’m just getting over a broken heart. It’s never gonna happen.”
So I put my money where my mouth was, figuring I’d laugh all the way to the bank. I never thought I’d actually fall in love with the girl.Or that she’d become my reason for breathing.
The job, the bet, the girl. It was nothing but fun and games . . . until it became dead serious.
