The Bodyguard

By Katherine Center
The Bodyguard by Katherine Center digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Katherine Center's The Bodyguard is “My perfect 10 of a book. As funny and sweet as all the very best nineties rom-coms, but with Center’s signature heart-tugging depth. I wish I could erase it from my mind just to read it again for the first time. A shot of pure joy.”—Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Book Lovers

She’s got his back.
Hannah Brooks looks more like a kindergarten teacher than somebody who could kill you with a wine bottle opener. Or a ballpoint pen. Or a dinner napkin. But the truth is, she’s an Executive Protection Agent (aka "bodyguard"), and she just got hired to protect superstar actor Jack Stapleton from his middle-aged, corgi-breeding stalker.

He’s got her heart.
Jack Stapleton’s a household name—captured by paparazzi on beaches the world over, famous for, among other things, rising out of the waves in all manner of clingy board shorts and glistening like a Roman deity. But a few years back, in the wake of a family tragedy, he dropped from the public eye and went off the grid.

They’ve got a secret.
When Jack’s mom gets sick, he goes home to the family’s Texas ranch to help out. Only one catch: He doesn’t want his family to know about his stalker. Or the bodyguard thing. And so Hannah—against her will and her better judgment—finds herself pretending to be Jack’s girlfriend as a cover. Even though her ex, says no one will believe it.

What could possibly go wrong?
Hannah hardly believes it, herself. But the more time she spends with Jack, the more real it all starts to seem. And there lies the heartbreak. Because it’s easy for Hannah to protect Jack. But protecting her own, long-neglected heart? That’s the hardest thing she’s ever done.

“Great rollicking fun! Prepare to laugh and swoon and grin your pants off.”—Helen Hoang, New York Times bestselling author of The Heart Principle

"Absolutely, unequivocally delightful!"—Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wish You Were Here

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“soooo.. idk what it was about this book but i struggled getting into it before i hit the 30% mark. like i thought/knew i’d like it but it just couldn’t keep my attention. i found myself getting distracted so easily at first and not necessarily WANTING to read it yk? i knew i had to though and the date of the book switch is almost here. although, once i made myself just sit down and read it, i ended up really enjoying it. i found myself giggling and laughing at things, tearing up at parts, and even getting mad at some things that happened to these characters. for some reason the nickname “bobby” cracked me up. so, even tho it was a struggle to get into because i felt like it was too predictable, i ended up really enjoying it and reading it in one sitting. if you give this book a shot and just read it, you’ll probably end up enjoying it because it’s genuinely just a fun read.”

“4.5 ⭐️ I absolutely loved this book it was so so cute and very light hearted! The concept was so interesting with her being the bodyguard instead of him!! I also loved the connection the two characters had throughout the whole book when talking and having interactions!”
