Published by MLR Press Genres: Contemporary, MM

As the son of a crime boss Jeff Giovinazzo enjoys certain privileges others only dream about.  Going off to college and further away from his father’s business is something to fully embrace until he’s told a bodyguard will be shadowing him.

 

The bodyguard assigned to him is Vic Torres who grew up on the same property as Jeff.  The wealthy son went to an exclusive private school while the other boy attended public school.

 

Jeff is a natural fit on the campus, Vic not so much in his suit and tie.  Taking pity on him the college student takes his bodyguard in hand and dresses him more appropriately to fit in with the crowd.  Better clothed Jeff begins to notice Vic in ways his father wouldn’t approve.  Suddenly the lines between them feel erased.

 

An unlikely romance comes to fruition in this fast paced drama.  My Bodyguard brings together two unassuming characters because of their fathers’ positions.  Though both are pleasant, Jeff is so unkind and Vic unresponsive it’s a stretch to think they can ever get past their early days together in the college setting.  In the end they find their way to a sweet love story, but it’s a hard sell at times.

Tony Bradshaw is the first to admit he’s no saint.  A miserable childhood led to juvenile detention and unfortunately escalated from there.  At least he finally wised up and got his act together to become a law abiding citizen.

Minding his own business one night Tony witnesses a gang hit on an undercover cop which puts a new wrinkle on his life.  Now he’s expected to testify for the good guys.  When Tony receives death threats he’s whisked into protective custody.

Taken to a cabin in the middle of nowhere Tony is saddled with Detective Alec Dubinski, a cop who’s clearly uncomfortable with a gay witness. Tony has to deal with an obviously homophobic cop and killers on the lookout for him.   Funny how life works out.

Redemption comes in many forms for lovers Tony and Alec in Witness Protection.  Told in first person point of view Tony’s luckless life has turned onto the right path when fate hands him another twist.  It may be somewhat difficult to reconcile Alec’s actions and Tony’s forgiveness but getting past that leads to a hot and heavy romance.  Witness Protection offers a solid storyline, a charmer for a hero, and loads of turmoil to deal with.

There are certain expectations for the son of a prominent father and a popular older brother at Atherton High School.  Knowing what is expected of him, honor student Grant Foster does everything he is supposed to do in order to please his family and school.

 Life is going as planned for Grant until the day the classmate called ‘The Punk’ with his large dragon tattoo begins to take an interest.  One quick encounter in the boys’ shower escalates to more and before Grant knows it his grades are slipping and his father is livid.  He’s not the golden boy anymore, but for some reason Grant doesn’t care as long as he can spend his time with his very own dragon…

 Naughty seduces nice.  Virginal passion becomes carnal knowledge.  Decadent fun makes The Mark of the Dragon an erotic treat.  Naïve Grant is no match for his dragon and he certainly isn’t complaining.  This is one wild ride.
