Author: Molly O’Keefe
Summary: Perfect for readers of Susan Elizabeth Phillips and Rachel Gibson, Molly O’Keefe’s second novel in her exciting new series—The Boys of Bishop—features an irresistible romance and unforgettable characters in a page-turning story that delivers equal parts emotion and humor . . . with a little edge to boot.
As the daughter of a wealthy politician, Ashley Montgomery has had enough of her parents’ expectations for her future and is going her own way, volunteering to work at a refugee camp in Africa. But her act of charity turns dangerous when she takes a boat trip and is abducted by Somali pirates. Enter Brody Baxter, who was a bodyguard for the Montgomery family ten years ago and doesn’t think twice about coming to Ashley’s rescue. Handsome and tough, Brody has always done what needed to be done. So he swoops in, saves Ashley, and brings her to a place where she can rest and recuperate without the glare of the press and her demanding family: Brody’s small hometown of Bishop, Arkansas. But Ashley soon realizes that she’s not the only one in need of healing.
Holed up with Ashley in a tiny apartment over his brother’s bar in Bishop, Brody is tempted and torn in ways he never anticipated. Beautiful Ashley, vibrant despite her ordeal, fearless enough to love him beyond his wall of self-punishment, is now determined to save him. But with a little faith and a lot of love, they just may find happiness in each others’ arms. – Goodreads Summary
My Thoughts: I was graciously given a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
They had me at Rachel Gibson! An author whom I adore so when I read that fans of hers would like this I was excited!
I enjoy a good bodyguard story and this was definitely one of them. Brody is brooding and grouchy and I love it! He is exactly what you expect out of a body guard! And Ashley is just what he needs. She is persistent and a fighter and doesn’t let Brody get away with being…himself.
It is true, if you like Gibson’s books you will most likely enjoy this read. It is an easy read, with a fun cast of characters. I am going to have to pick up the first book and the third!
