Guardian For Hire (For Hire #2) by Christine Bell

Psychologist Sarabeth Lucking’s life is turned upside down when the upscale couples’ retreat she works for winds up embroiled in the biggest scandal of the year. With her reputation in tatters, she can’t imagine things getting worse, until her former co-workers are murdered, one by one. A bad-ass, ex-Army Ranger might be able to keep her safe, but something tells her she’s getting more than she bargained for...

Gavin McClintock grew up on the streets of Edinburgh, and protecting prissy Dr. Stick-Up-Her-Rear isn’t high on his list of things to do. Still, a promise is a promise, and he’ll need a clear head if he’s going to keep her off the growing list of victims. He didn’t count on the fire in her, or how distracted he’d be by her. As the flames grow hotter, he starts to wonder if she’s the one who needs protecting.

Will Sarabeth and Gavin outrun a killer and give into the passion burning between them?

"My Favourite Quotes from the Book"
"..I say plan for the worst, hope for the best."
---Guardian For Hire, Christine Bell 

"I don't care what you were, I don't care what you think I am. I want you now. I want this.... Don't try to say I'm looking for my stupid freaking prince in the wrong castle."
---Guardian For Hire, Christine Bell 

"I've spent my whole life thinking I wasn't worth loving. Then I met you." ".... You made me want to be worthy of you."
---Guardian For Hire, Christine Bell 
Another amazing book. Its one of those books which hold your interest right from the beginning and until the end. There is mystery and romance, a combination which rarely goes wrong but with Bell's way of writing its even better. I had enjoyed book one as well and although that made things clearer for me from the start, you don't have to read book one to enjoy it.
I read a lot and there is always something to love in every book but with Guardian for hire it wasn't something or anything, it was absolutely everything. The air of mystery (who was trying to kill Sarabeth or why?), the romance (instant attraction between Gavin and Sarabeth) and most of all the humour (a lot of laugh-out-loud scenes).
Sarabeth has become one of my most beloved heroines. I must say that recently that has been rare. Even though I have read some immensely good books I haven't felt this kind of connection with the characters in ages.
All in all it was a great read, very entertaining. Anyone looking for romantic comedy with a touch of mystery and action must read it. :)
