Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"New York Times bestselling author Katherine Center's The Bodyguard is unabashedly romantic, laugh-out-loud funny, and the perfect summer read. She's got his back. Hannah Brooks looks more like a kindergarten teacher than somebody who could kill you with a wine bottle opener. Or a ballpoint pen. Or a dinner napkin. But the truth is, she's an Executive Protection Agent (aka "bodyguard"), and she just got hired to protect superstar actor Jack Stapleton from his middle-aged, corgi-breeding stalker. He's got her heart. Jack Stapleton's a household name-captured by paparazzi on beaches the world over, famous for, among other things, rising out of the waves in all manner of clingy board shorts and glistening like a Roman deity. But a few years back, in the wake of a family tragedy, he dropped from the public eye and went off the grid. They've got a secret. When Jack's mom gets sick, he comes home to the family's Texas ranch to help out. Only one catch: He doesn't want his family to know about his stalker. Or the bodyguard thing. And so Hannah-against her will and her better judgment-finds herself pretending to be Jack's girlfriend as a cover. Even though her ex, like a jerk, says no one will believe it. What could possibly go wrong??? Hannah hardly believes it, herself. But the more time she spends with Jack, the more real it all starts to seem. And there lies the heartbreak. Because it's easy for Hannah to protect Jack. But protecting her own, long-neglected heart? That's the hardest thing she's ever done"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Center (What You Wish For, 2020) turns gender norms on their heads in this utterly charming tale of a female bodyguard and the gorgeous movie star she's assigned to protect. Houston-based Hannah Brooks is an executive protection agent, trained in martial arts and hyperaware of her surroundings. But Hannah's game is decidedly off after her mother dies, and her boyfriend/co-worker Robby dumps her, seemingly out of the blue. So when her boss decides to assign her to protect Jack Stapleton, a handsome, reclusive actor who has come to Houston to spend time on his family ranch with his ailing mother, Hannah balks at the assignment. And that's before she finds out that, to make sure his family doesn't discover that he has a stalker, Jack is going to tell them that she's his girlfriend. As Hannah gets to know Jack and learns more about the tragic accident that took the life of his younger brother and fractured the family, she can't help but fall for her charismatic charge. Center's latest might be her most winning yet, a classic romantic set-up with two appealing, sympathetic leads. It's not only a must-read for her fans, but it will likely garner her new devotees as well. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
