Review: Keeping Her Close by Carol Ross


Hired to protect her

…unable to resist her

The job sounds simple: teach a businessman’s daughter how to stay safe. But former navy SEAL turned bodyguard Kyle Frasier has a personal motive, too. Harper Jansen is his late best friend’s fiancée. Loyalty demands he protect her, not that Harper looks in need of rescuing. In fact, it’s Kyle who needs help—balancing duty with his desire to build a life with the one woman he shouldn’t want…

My Thoughts:

This book was a sweet romance (note, it was just romance- not romantic suspense despite the hero being a body guard) between a free-spirited millionaire's daughter turned photographer and a straight-laced, stoic former Navy SEAL turned security consultant. Further complications arise from the fact that she's his late best friend's ex-fiancé; the late best friend he is even now trying to investigate the death of. On top of it all, he has relationship issues, and she has trust issues... And she’s the one person who can tell him about her ex-fiance, but it’s not something she can straight-out tell him.

There were two aspects of the story that stood out more than the others. One was the adorable banter between the survivor-minded hero and the much more spontaneous heroine, as he tried so hard to teach her how to be safe. The other best aspect was his family, and their unique dynamics, with his in-laws as close as blood relations. An all-around pleasant story.

I received a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
