Blog tour, Erica's Review: Kissing Alex by RJ Scott

Title: Kissing Alex
Series: Bodyguards Inc #6 
Author: R.J. Scott
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: April 25, 2016
Martial arts expert Lewis is the kind of bodyguard who slips under most people’s radar. Quiet, reserved, but constantly on alert, he’ll do his job, keep his charges safe, then relax by reading Shakespeare in his spare time.
When he’s given a case involving a spoiled celebrity singer, Lewis isn’t all that impressed. The job is nothing but babysitting a pretty boy, and he’s used to diplomatic postings with depth and challenge. What could he possibly have in common with the man he’s being forced to look after? Alex became the envy of many when he and his fellow bandmates won second place in a huge TV talent show. He has more money than he knows what to do with, no life goals, an ex-boyfriend selling a sex tape and now, someone who wants him dead, or at the very least maimed.
Can Lewis keep Alex safe, even when things usually in his control go to hell? Is running to a remote Scottish island the only way for them to stay alive?
Kissing Alex is book #6 from the Bodyguard Inc. Series.  I haven’t read the other 5 books and I didn’t have any problems understanding, so yes it can be read as a standalone.  Although I must say it did leave me wanting to read the other books.  
If you are looking for a sweet romance with mild angst this would be a great book. The Scottish setting and the characters were beautifully descriptive. Lewis is what every bodyguard should be, protective, loyal, and very in tune with the person he’s protecting. In fact he was so in tune that he started to notice how beautiful Alex's lips were.   Once Lewis got past what he thought the normal Rock star attitude would be Lewis found Alex to be nothing like what he expected.  He was kind, sweet, and lovable.  I loved the way the story was told from both Alex and Lewis' perspectives, while each of them was trying to figure out where the other persons interest lay, they got more and more invested themselves. Both wanting to think that a causal relationship would be enough but knowing deep down that they both needed more. To sum up this story I would say this is a book with a reluctant bodyguard that unexpectedly found a true love.   I gave this heartwarming story 4 stars!
"I just don't have words for how amazing this Bodyguards Inc series is.  And it just keeps getting better and better."  ~rainbowgirl (Amazon Review)

"Wow, RJ Scott has done it again.  Kissing Alex was a wonderful addition to the Bodyguards, Inc family."  ~sgirl (Amazon Review)
RJ Scott has been writing since age six when she was made to stay in at lunchtime for an infraction involving cookies and was told to write a story. Two sides of A4 about a trapped princess later, a lover of writing was born. She reads anything from thrillers to sci-fi to horror; however, her first real love will always be the world of romance. From billionaires, bodyguards and cowboys to SEALs, throwaways and veterinarians, she writes passionate stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and more than a hint of happily ever after.
