Derrick
Arlington is one of the world’s most eligible billionaires. Voted

and has no idea I’m a total imposter.

Excerpt
“Get rid of
her, or she comes with us.”
“I’m not
going anywhere, buddy.” I jabbed him in the chest in an attempt to create more
space. In close combat with this guy, I’d lose. Sure, I was faster and nimbler.
But one good hit and I’d be down.
His sharp,
slashing brows drew down. “Suit yourself. I know what to do with someone like
you.”
I’d bet he
did. And none of those things included me sleeping in my warm cozy bed tonight.
“Babe, come on the royal family wants a photo.”
Gray Eyes
arched a brow. “Darling, you go ahead I’ll meet you there.” His voice was sin
and bad decisions mixed together.
I stood my
ground. Now was no time for him to be noble. “Oh, I know King Sebastian
insists.”
“I’ll have
to pass, love.”
“Yeah, you
heard him, he’ll have to —”
He was
talking and also raising his right arm. All I saw was the black gleam, and I
acted, launching myself in the air and slamming against Gray Eyes. Toppling him
over and covering his body with mine, tranq gun raised.
Wasting no
time, I squeezed twice. The asshole about to shoot at us was big. Who knew if
two doses would be enough? But I was prepared to run.
The
muscle-bound brute fell to his knees. I rolled on my back, ready for anything.
But I
didn’t need to worry. Two hits with the tranq had done the job.
I sucked in
a shuddering breath.
When I
turned to my bed of muscles, he was glaring at me. “Do you have a bloody death
wish?”
His voice
had lost some of the sin quality. It was colder, like he was pissed.
I pushed to
my feet. “What? You wanted me to let you go with that asshole? He was going to
kill you.”
“I promise
you, I’m quite capable.”
Unbelievable. “You could have fooled me. Men
wielding weapons and shoving you into a car are generally bad news.”
His gaze
narrowed as he glowered at me. “I had it under control.”
I crossed
my arms. “Oh, so you’re delusional. Okay then. Goodbye, crazy. And P.S. You’re
welcome.”
“You
generally only say thank you when you’re glad someone did something.”
I shook my
head. “For fuck’s sake. Next time I’ll let you die then. Pity. You look
expensive, like someone would miss you, but it’s no skin off my back. I’ll just
let the homicidal asshole kill you when he wakes up.”
“You could
have been hurt. Did you pay attention to what just happened?”
“You mean
besides me putting on a display of badassery the likes of which you’ve never
seen? I also made this couture look damn good. Oh yes… and saved your ass.”
“My ass
didn’t need saving, princess.”
“I’m not a
princess, asshole. I’m a King’s Knight. I don’t need anybody to save me. Have a
nice life.” As I strutted off, I flipped him the bird.

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I loved this book! Need part two like now!
Bodyguard To The Billionaire was the first part of the Billionaire duet. Since I have read several books by this author, I knew there was a cliffhanger coming. I seriously took three days to read this book because I kept intentionally putting it down. I was not looking forward to it ending and having to wait two months for the conclusion book; I wanted to prolong my time with the H/h. But I will tell you that if you wanted, you could devour it in a couple of hours.

As you already know, there is a cliffhanger. I knew it was coming but still wasn’t ready for it. Usually by this time in a book, I have inferred where the author is going. I make it my mission to figure things out before the climax. It’s just part of my reading enjoyment. That being said, I wasn’t ready. While I have guessed at a few conclusion options, I’m not there yet. This author is amazing at throwing mysterious plots and angst around. Oh, and let’s not forget to mention a whole lot of sexy billionaire.

Without giving too much away, Zia, one of the King’s Knights and a security professional at Royal Elite, has been given the task of protecting billionaire Derrick Arlington. Prior to her official position as his bodyguard, Zia has already has the pleasure (not) of meeting Derrick so she is not happy about the job. Unfortunately, Derrick is the King’s cousin and demands his protection.

Derrick Arlington is arrogant jerk. Or is he? There is a lot going on and I am not going to tell you anything. Trust me, part of the pleasure in reading this book, is experiencing every emotion, every moment on your own.

If you are already a fan of Nana Malone, then you know to expect a talented and intriguing romantic suspense. If you haven’t read her books yet, here is your opportunity. In my opinion, she is a must read author if you love romantic suspense with a whole lot of sexiness, with a cast of complex and lovable characters.

This is my honest and unbiased opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
