Under Your Protection

Alpha Male Incorporated, #1

Jax Irizarry along with his brothers own Alpha Male Incorporated. However, Jax now enjoys working behind the desk. So, when good friend Frank asks him to guard his goddaughter's body, he is reluctant. Sahara is also reluctant at giving up her freedom. Being a rising singer comes with many complications and whoever is sending her the odd emails is probably just a peculiar fan. As the threats get worst, real fear sets in and they must work together.

The connection between Jax and Sahara was not very believable. It seemed very rushed, making one believe that it isn't going to last very long. Sahara is attracted to Jax, but does not want to get involved with him. Nonetheless, it happens quickly and her behavior after that does not seem to coincide with what is known of the early Sahara. This took most of the conflict out of the book.

Although, Jax and his brothers are vampires, there were very few paranormal elements throughout this book. Eyes and fangs are really the only characteristics mentioned several times that remind you of their inhuman forms. While these problems exist there are still many components of romance to enjoy. For avid romance readers or multicultural readers it is definitely worth your time

The Golden Rule in being a Bodyguard 101: Never get involved with a client no matter how unbelievably sexy she might be.

Personal bodyguard Jax Irizarry retired from the business ten years ago and opened up his own company called Alpha Male Incorporated. He was content no longer being thrown into the danger zone and got enough pleasure from working behind a desk. So, why did this best friend Frank Chantel want to hire him to protect his goddaughter/singer Sahara 'Coco' Chantel?

Sahara Chantel reluctantly agreed to a bodyguard to please her uncle. She was more focused on getting her singing career off the ground not an overzealous fan. Anyway, it wasn’t like she was going to be attracted to her bodyguard because weren’t most of them older men with gray hair?

Sahara's preconceived notions about bodyguards were shot to hell when she walked inside her den and spotted the tall, blond and sexy Jax Irizarry waiting for her.
