Review: Bodyguard to a Sex God by R. J. Scott

Bodyguard To A Sex God 
(Bodyguards Inc. #1)
by R.J. Scott
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: April 24, 2014

Bodyguard Adam Freeman draws what everyone else thinks is the short straw at the convention for a procedural cop show - as bodyguard to TV actor Logan Brady. Or as the Internet has labelled him, Logan 'Sex God' Brady.

Logan is taking part in a convention at a London Hotel for his show 'Night Cop' and someone is threatening his life.

Adam gets more than he bargained for when his client combines coming out of the closet with them both trying to stay alive.

This is a light read with some minor suspense. Relatively short but it have sufficient plot development that feels like a full length story to me. 

Adam had been tasked with a ten day assignments to guard an American celebrity during a convention. There isn't a lot of backstory to Adam beside a mentioned to his career as ex-cop. I didn't even get to know why he left that job. Adam is a pretty upstanding guy and openly gay.

Logan had been in the limelight since his teenage years as a child star. He was forced himself to remain in the closet for as long as he can remember in order to protect his career. With a stalker and some death threats looming over him and meeting the sexy bodyguard, Logan might face some life changing consequences during his trip to London.

There isn't a lot of background information on the Bodyguard Inc beside introducing two other co-workers. The story mainly focus on the here and now with Adam and Logan being along side each other and close proximity and growing closer together. Despite the short amount of time, the pacing feels natural. Logan is slowly willing to open up and admit to others on his sexuality. Adam, despite wanting to remain professional, can't really deny the pull they are having. The ongoing threats keep us on our toes guessing who is the culprit. And in all, a pretty satisfying short read that even have a nice HEA to boot.
