Title: Kissing Alex
Series: Bodyguards Inc #6
Author: R.J. Scott
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2016
Martial arts expert Lewis is the kind of bodyguard who slips under most people’s radar. Quiet, reserved, but constantly on alert, he’ll do his job, keep his charges safe, then relax by reading Shakespeare in his spare time.
When he’s given a case involving a spoiled celebrity singer, Lewis isn’t all that impressed. The job is nothing but babysitting a pretty boy, and he’s used to diplomatic postings with depth and challenge. What could he possibly have in common with the man he’s being forced to look after? Alex became the envy of many when he and his fellow bandmates won second place in a huge TV talent show. He has more money than he knows what to do with, no life goals, an ex-boyfriend selling a sex tape and now, someone who wants him dead, or at the very least maimed.
Can Lewis keep Alex safe, even when things usually in his control go to hell? Is running to a remote Scottish island the only way for them to stay alive?

Lewis lives for the month he spends on his island in Scotland every year. When Kyle asks him to combine a job babysitting a singer from a boy band, he's not happy, but finally relents because the pay will help him cross off his list many of the things he needs to take care at the island.
Alex has no clue how an almost-one-stand could have gone so wrong. Not only was he attacked, but a sex tape from that night was released and now everyone is talking about him, never mind that his life is at risk.
I really liked Lewis and Alex. Lewis was the strong, silent type, not too keen on liking Alex, but once he got to know him, he couldn't stop being attracted to the singer, especially once he realized there was more to Alex that met the eye at first. And Alex, despite being smaller than Lewis, was a nice surprise at how in charge he was in the bedroom. I just loved the dynamics between the two of them and how well they fit together and with the rest of the people on the island.
All in all, a fantastic addition to the series, fast-paced and interesting, with very likable characters and a great storyline that kept me at the edge of my seat! It can be read as a standalone, but really, you'll be missing out if you don't try the other titles.
