ROCK ME, an all new sexy STANDALONE, is coming this fall from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Carly Phillips!

Bodyguard Bad Boys… Sexy, Hot, and oh so protective!

A pop star in danger.

Her reluctant bodyguard.

A past they can’t deny.

Summer Michelle is on the verge of ultimate fame.

Ben Hollander has sworn off mixing business with pleasure.

But keeping his hands off of the sexy songstress is easier said than done and once the threat is neutralized, will she choose fame over love?

A new series by the ever so amazing Carly Phillips? Uh, YES PLEASE! Sexy, sweet, and utterly enticing, Ms. Phillips brings ALL THE HEAT to the first installment of her new Bodyguard Bad Boys Series. This is a fast-paced second chance romance that will leave you with complete satisfaction. This author never fails to bring true romance to the table, giving her fans exactly what they want with every new release she sends our way. As I turned the last page all I could think of was that I wanted more! We meet the characters that will be involved in this series and there is so much potential there, and I’m excited to see where Ms. Phillips goes from here.

“There’s no chance of me running anywhere but into your arms.”

Ben Hollander got burned by Summer Michelle in the past, but she needs protection on her latest venture. Being the honorable man that he is (and the fact that he was the only option) he sets off to protect the up-and-coming pop star, the woman who he thought he had a sizzling connection with all those years ago. When these two flames were reunited, I wanted nothing but a quick happily ever after, but of course there are obstacles to go through first. So page by page, I rooted for these two…rooted through their stubbornness and their misconceptions. Rooted for them through their smokin’ hot sexual reunion and when the feelings started to burn brighter, I couldn’t have been more excited for the two of them. These two really gave me a run for my money. Their scorching chemistry and sexual tension was combustible and addicting.

ROCK ME is a GREAT fall romance that you will want to pick up as soon as possible. It’s a really good start to what I’m sure is going to be another fantastic alpha-driven contemporary romance series.

Her heart was pounding hard in her chest, the thunderous live applause still echoing around her and the rush of success and pride in overcoming what could have been a disaster, had her soaring.

“Did you see that?” she asked Ben.  “My earpiece went dead and I nailed it anyway!”

“You totally did,” he said, a huge grin on his face that let her know he understood what a huge moment this was.

She squealed in excitement and threw her arms around his neck, needing to share her exhilaration. Their gazes met and locked, the air around them suddenly crackling with tension and sexual need even Ben couldn’t deny.

She knew what she wanted, knew there was no better time to go about it. Her gaze fell to his mouth and she pressed her lips against his. He jerked in surprise then groaned, thrust his hand beneath her hair, holding her against him as he slid his tongue past the seam of her lips and kissed her back.

He might think he wanted to keep his distance but his body was demanding they get close, his mouth gliding back and forth over hers, razor stubble bristling her cheeks in a sweet burn and his tongue delved deep. Against her stomach, she felt the hard press of his erection, causing desire to sweep over her in waves.

No wonder she hadn’t found a guy she wanted to keep in her life. No one could live up to Ben.

He kissed like he wanted to possess her.

Own her.

Keep her.
