Review: Baker's Bodyguard by Lori Ryan

I discovered this series during a book blast tour for the first book in the series, Legal Ease.  I didn't do a review during the tour, but the book nagged at me enough that when the second book, Penalty Clause came up for tour, I signed up for it and read and reviewed both of them.  The third book, Negotiation Tactics was a 5 star read for me and I was thrilled to see that there was a novella available. Ms Ryan was stupendous enough to send me this story upon my request for review.

This is the story of Jesse, sister of Kelly from book one and Zach Harris, the bodyguard from book two.  It has been about 9 months since Kelly was kidnapped and recovered.  Unfortunately for Jesse, she is slowly becoming too afraid to go anywhere alone and too afraid to admit the truth to her family. She has even deferred her admittance into a prestigious culinary academy in New York where she planned on getting the training she needed to open her own bakery.  Luckily for Jesse, her mother starts to suspect that something is wrong and goes to Jack, Kelly's husband for advice and counsel. Jack knows just the bodyguard slash victims advocate who can help Jesse overcome her fears.

This story about a woman overcoming her fears and learning to live again was beautifully written. The chemistry between Jesse and Zach is a slow build, as Jesse comes to terms with her fears and learns to trust herself again.  Zach is the right mix of tough guy, tough love and supportive friend.  This was a 4 star book and one that I am so glad I got to read.
This steamy, sexy, funny novella is the perfect read for the beach or a vacation!

Jesse Bradley never thought she'd need help going out into the world. But, after her sister was kidnapped, she began to have trouble going anyplace alone. An anxiety attack would start if a stranger asked her what time it was. Before she knew it, she was making up excuses to stay inside. Where things were safe.

Zach Harris was going to change all that. The steamy, sexy bodyguard got her into counseling to help her overcome her fears. He went with her everywhere helping her learn to feel safe again.

Jesse and Zach both feel the chemistry sparking between them. But will there be more than just chemistry for these two?

This book alternates between making you laugh and making you hot with its steamy sex scenes as Jesse and Zach navigate their way through New York City.
