Sweet Talker by Robin Bielman

He likes to be in control…

It’s like this: I’m the hottest restauranteur on the west coast. I work hard, play hard, and love my family. I’m also the guy on the receiving end of some unwelcome threats and fixation. Then Pascale Nichols walks back into my life, and I forget about everything but her. They say lightening never strikes twice, but she’s the one that got away. She’s also, I soon discover, the one my family *secretly* hired to protect me. Am I mad? Hell, yes. Am I game to play along? You bet.

She’s in over her head…

Everyone knows and loves Ethan Auprince. With his sexy-as-sin dimples and crazy likeability, he’s always the center of attention. I’ve been tasked with protecting celebrities, bigwigs, and high-ranking officials, but when I come face-to-face with the man I spent one incredible summer with, I’m in trouble. A careless mistake on my last assignment cost me, and now Ethan is looking at me like he wants to devour me, not cooperate with my subtle instructions while I work under the guise of his restaurant manager.

My reputation is at risk. His safety is on the line. But worse, we’re falling in love again.

Ethan and Pascale’s story was a whole lot of fun. The secret bodyguard portion (love the gender switch there, BTW!) is over at about the halfway mark–the gig is actually up a little before that though, when Ethan secretly figures it out and OMG I love what he does there 😉 The book takes a path in the second half that I wasn’t at all expecting but ended up really enjoying, maybe even more than what was going on in the first half.

Though these books are all standalone, I’m going to go out on a limb and say you should read this before reading Drew’s book, just so you don’t ruin that surprise. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go back and inhale Finn’s story…. ( Heartthrob )

Rating: 4 stars / A

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

About the author:

Robin Bielman is the USA Today bestselling author of over fifteen novels. When not attached to her laptop, she loves to read, go to the beach, frequent coffee shops (and by frequent she means daily but she’s trying to break the habit), and spend time with her high school sweetheart husband and two sons.

Her fondness for swoon-worthy heroes who flirt and stumble upon the girl they can’t live without jumpstarts most of her story ideas. She writes with a steady stream of caffeine nearby (see above) and the best dog on the planet, Harry, by her side. She also dreams of traveling to faraway places and loves to connect with readers.
