Return to Book Page. Preview — Bodyguard by Suzanne Brockmann. Bodyguard by Suzanne Brockmann Goodreads Author. Threatened by underworld boss Michael Trotta, Alessandra Lamont is nearly blown to pieces in a mob hit.
The last thing she wants is to put what’s left of her life into the hands of the sexy, loose-cannon federal agent who seems to look right through her yet won’t let her out of his sight. FBI agent Harry O’Dell’s ex-wife and son were tragic casualties in his ongoing war against organized crime.
He’ll do whatever it takes to bring Trotta down–even if it means sticking like glue to this blonde bombshell who unwittingly married into the mob. She needs him if she wants to stay alive. But staying alive is nothing next to the explosive attraction that threatens to consume them both–and puts them into the greatest danger of all.

Nov 24, Kimberly Carrington-Fox rated it it was ok Shelves: View all 4 comments. Este libro me ha parecido mucho mejor. Otro libro del RetoRita en mi haber. View all 3 comments. Retorita Es una gran sorpresa este libro. Gracias al Reto Rita la Cantaora, por sugerirlo. Eso demuestra lo bueno que es, lo directo, sincero, con personajes reales y completos, y muy complejos. Ella siempre ha sabido de su belleza, pero no con prepotencia o soberbia, sino con humildad.
Un hombre fuerte fisicamente, pero con unas inseguridades en su alma tan profundas. Un padre y un hombre normal. El hijo de Harry, Shaum, es maravilloso. Que bien ha conseguido la autora expresar esas inseguridades de la adolescencia.
Vamos a por el siguiente RetoRita. Los protagonistas me han gustado mucho por sus imperfecciones y su capacidad de lucha.
Aug 24, Cassandra Dexter Colby rated it it was ok Shelves: Estuve entre tres y dos. Ella, pues un poco igual, la rubia tonta que luego no es tal. Una historia demasiado simple, unos personajes sosos, nada rescatable. Es una buena historia de suspense, de hecho tiene un comienzo trepidante que te deja los pelillos como escarpias, pero estuvo interesante hasta la mitad del libro. La segunda mitad se me ha hecho muy farragosa y embrollada y siento que la autora no ha profundizado lo que debiera.
Los personajes me han gustado bastante, me han parecido muy humanos, sobre todo Harry, que no es de 3 Estrellitas. Invece no, fermi tutti.
Primo punto a sizanne Altro punto a favore: Integrate il tutto con lo stile della Brockmann, sempre frizzante e godibile, e avrete una storia mai sopra le righe, romantica al punto giusto, con cambi scene e ritmo avvincente, come una commedia che si recita davanti ai vostri occhi. Avete presente la sensazione di leggere e di farvi il film nella testa?
Feb 13, Erin rated it really liked it Shelves: This book was published before the Troubleshooters series, so I had low expectations going into it, bovyguard I was pleasantly surprised. Harry O’Dell is a great character. I love that he’s brockmanb the typical romance hero: I was thinking that he was kind of a proto-Sam Starrett from the Troubleshooters series; there are enough similarities that I made the comparison, but they’re different enough, This book was published before bodygyard Troubleshooters series, so I had low expectations going into it, but I was pleasantly surprised.
I was thinking that he was kind of a proto-Sam Starrett from the Troubleshooters zuzanne there are enough similarities that I bodtguard the comparison, but they’re different enough, too, that it’s not obvious. For one thing, Harry is much less macho than Sam and a lot more damaged. And Harry is Damaged. It’s probably what makes his character compelling, as he works through his Issues in his own way.
The subplot involving Harry’s partner George was also very well done. I was reading the book with Romance Novel Expectations, so as soon as George’s attractive ex-wife was on the scene and it was clear that George was still hung up on her, I just assumed they would get back together.
This was an outcome I was actively rooting against, because the ex Nicole sucks. It’s a shame, actually, that she wasn’t more fleshed out, because all we ever really see of her is her completely insane ambition. She’s more desperate to catch the mob boss after Alessandra than Harry is, when Harry has more obvious motivation—said mob boss killed his wife and son and is after the woman he loves now, but Nicole’s only motivation seems to be Anyway, the outcome of that storyline really surprised me, but in a way boydguard totally made sense, brockmaann that was very well done.
It’s not the most suspenseful Brockmann novel I’ve read. She does sometimes kill of likable characters in unexpected ways in the Troubleshooters series, but I euzanne felt like any of the main characters in this novel were ever in real danger. And the end is a little too neat and sappy, but it is a romance novel, so I’ll let it go.
May 14, Hildy rated it did not like it. This was weak and dull.
I’ll stick to the Troubleshooters. Mar 16, Shea rated it it was ok Shelves: I usually really like Suzanne Brockmann novels but as Randy Jackson would say this one was just “awright. The story seemed to lack depth and was more predictable than her Troubleshooter stories.
I had trouble with the fact that one of the villians was named “Griffin” but that is my own hang up since that is my son’s name. I wouldn’t recommend this one. Mar 24, Brittany B. Those who don’t mind a less than perfect hero.
Actually the book and the heroine were memorable, but the “hero” was kind of a short, messy, loser. He’s a good cop, but as a love interest and as someone with an estranged family, he’s can be lacking. The plot and the romance are pretty juicy. I really liked Harry O’Dell! He’s crazy all right, but a gorgeous crazy and funny man! And I think Sarcasm is his middle name!
I found myself laughing at his every sarcastic comment to Alessandra Lamont! This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. As soon as I read that one of the characters asked if Harry broclmann insane, that he was pretending to rob the store, and his partner said to watch, that it got better Bodtguard was like oh boy.
I could see where it was going. And sure enough, it was lame. It was going for funny and missed.

Harry came off as stupid and that shouldn’t have happened. You got some kind broclmann agreement with the owner says you’re the only ones can rip him off? What, were you afraid he was going to sit on you?
