I absolutely loved this book from start to finish. Justin Trainer is a brilliant character, extremely loyal with an awesome sense of humour. Mr Anderson is a weird-billionaire-genius with major issues.
If you are a romance reader then you will have come across the tormented billionaire story and probably fallen in ‘book-boyfriend’ love with him, however have you ever paid any attention to his bodyguard? The silent man in the background, the keeper of his secrets, and the one who see’s the man inside. If, like me, you had more of a crush on Taylor then Mr. Grey then you will love Justin Trainer, the man ‘Guarding The Billionaire’.
Ex-Marine, Justin Trainer, now works in Close Protection, essentially he is a bodyguard. Getting jobs from his former C/O turned security specialist he finds himself on some weird and wonderful assignments. His latest job is Head of Security for billionaire Devon Anderson. Devon is a closed-off businessman who prefers to stay out of the limelight, however he does harbour a very large secret and that is his need for self-flagellation and kinky (BDSM style) sex. Devon does not make Trainer’s life easy, often disregarding his advice and not telling Trainer pertinent information.
During his time with the elusive Mr Anderson, Trainer forms an attachment to Mrs Smith, the housekeeper. He also has a sever disliking of Mr Anderson’s ‘family friend’ Mr Landon. And don’t even getting me started on his thoughts about Mr Anderson’s ‘meditation’ room! So you maybe thinking this all sounds very familiar, you would right. If you have read Fifty then you will notice a resemblance in the story and the characters. Don’t worry though, this is a different story, different perspective and… just different.
This book encompasses a number of genres – comedy, romance, BDSM and mystery/suspense. The comedy side is absolutely hilarious. Trainer has a very dry wit and most of the comedic aspect comes from his private thoughts and opinions.
The BDSM side is based around Mr Anderson’s predilections and although these are touched on it is often from Trainer’s POV, there are some graphic descriptions but nothing too disturbing (in my opinion).
Really looking forward to reading the next in the series – Saving the Billionaire

It’s a black comedy, no wait, a romcom … um … a thriller, maybe suspense, and erotic with a bit of BDSM and a super hot bodyguard looking after his billionaire boss.
It’s definitely not all black and white…
