Guarded by L.A. Witt and Cat Grant (4 Stars)

Guarded - Cat Grant, L.A. Witt

Overall, I really enjoyed this story about a rock star and his bodyguard navigating a relationship in the midst of other issues. Unfortunately, there were a few issues that bothered me during the story and took my enjoyment down a notch. There were elements of BDSM, including breath play, whipping, and multiple partners, but it didn’t include a lot of discussion outside of a single safeword. Jordan and Jase were both fairly well-developed characters, but their relationship needed more dialogue to establish a more believable connection outside of sex. In addition to dealing with their own issues, they were also dealing with the drug addiction of Jordan’s best friend and band mate, Daniel. I liked the writing style of the two authors together.
