Tough Luck (A-List Security #1) by Annabeth Albert ~ Book Review

My best friend’s little brother needs a bodyguard. Now I’m the one in danger…

I’m a SEAL. Or rather, I was. Retired at the grand old age of thirty-eight, I’m at loose ends. My best friend wants me to join his security team. I’m not sure I’m bodyguard material, but he needs someone to protect his kid brother. How hard can spoiled brat duty be?

Somehow, I missed the part where former child star Danny Love went from dorky TV darling to all grown up and disturbingly attractive. All the gossip about his wild ways fails to mention that he’s trying hard to clean up his act. But now he’s got a stalker.

Hiding out together in a remote mountain cabin, alone, the temptation keeps building. I’m feeling things I never have before. Secrets I’ve kept even from myself bubble to the surface every time Danny looks my way with those puppy dog eyes.

I’m a SEAL. We leap into danger. So why is it so terrifying when that danger comes with the softest pair of lips I’ve ever known? At some point we’re going to have to return to Hollywood and our vastly different lives. Will Danny still want me around when he doesn’t need me for protection? Can I be brave enough to give him a reason to?

TOUGH LUCK is book one in a brand-new SEAL bodyguard series. It features an age gap, steamy first times, and all the high heat, big emotions, and found family feels readers expect from this fan-favorite military romance author. Join A-List security for this lower-angst series featuring former SEALs and the celebrity clients who win their hearts. Happy endings and no cliffhangers guaranteed!

Where do I even start with this review, there was just so much I loved about this book it's hard to say without saying too much.

Lets start with Cash, he's fresh out of the Navy, Hot SEAL alert!, and he's not sure what his next steps are but when his buddy needs help with his brother that is in danger of course he can't say no even if being a body guard is the last thing he wants to do.

Danny Love, former child star and recovering addict, hasn't had an easy life and the media has made sure to show all of his mess ups for all of the world to see. But now Danny is taking control of his life and he's doing a pretty good job of it, only now he has a stalker and this person is getting bold. So he asks his brother for help, little did he know that his brother would send his HOT SEAL friend to be his personal bodyguard until this person was caught.

There is a lot going on in this story, yes we have the big question of who is Danny's stalker but we also have the budding romance between Cash and Danny. Cash who has never had an experience with a man before and Danny who has been out and proud for a while. I loved watching these two find their way together and work through things. They had amazing chemistry right from the start and it only got stronger the more they trusted one another.

I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys MM Romances, Best Friends Sibling Romances, Age Gap Romances, Military Romances, Siblings Best Friend Romances, or Bodyguard Romances.

Happy Reading!!!
