Book Review: Mister Bodyguard – Lauren Rowe ***

Mister Bodyguard is the fourth book in the very popular Morgan Brothers series by Lauren Rowe. That said it is perfectly acceptable to treat this title as a standalone read.

Finding out that the characters were based on a book trilogy by Luke Jennings…
