Not what I thought I'd be doing with my life.

Especially not for a spoiled Hollywood actress on location in Miami Beach. But triple pay and carrying a gun had its advantages. I'd shove away paparazzi and screaming fans for a lot less. The Marines trained me to be Force Recon—intimidation and crowd control was child's play compared to four tours. This assignment should've been easy money.

But the doe-eyed starlet with the perfect smile dragged me down her rabbit hole. Living for the spotlight, she leaked the ultimate scandal. I warned her making headlines wasn't in my job description, but she kept smiling for the cameras.

Now she was going to find out just how scandalous a bodyguard could be.

  • First book I read in 2 years

    By Aleiah_Marie
    To be honest I only started reading the book because it was free but after reading it I NEED to read the other books. I absolutely loved it, I started and finished it in THREE days. probably would’ve finished it earlier if I didn’t have other priorities.
  • Amazing!

    By Alywix
    Wow, this author knows what’s up! I downloaded this book because I had a 5 hr plane ride ahead of me, and it was the best decision ever made. Not going to lie, the beginning threw me off. I put the book down and came back to it, and I’m so thankful I did. The mid-end in this book was ADDICTING! I could not put it down! I highly, highly recommend

  • A-MAZING!!

    By Tayy rozayy
    Loved this! I literally picked it up at 8pm and finished reading it at 2am. It was such a rollercoaster love story! It’s rare that you find a book with just the right amount of sexy, real, and romantic but this book had it all! Felt like I was right there, living it. Falcon “Tank” is definitely a book boyfriend!

    Amazing book! Loved everything about it. If you love Alpha Males that are protective from the very beginning then this is the book for you! Trigger warning: Child molestation and abandonment.
  • Great book

  • Scandalous

    By kwtawalker
    I read everything I can put my hands on, but I will drop a book in a New York second if it doesn’t capture my attention. Can anyone say HOT! But it is not just sex without a story line. If you are a prissy missy, not for you....or maybe it is. Hard to put down.
  • Make this a movie

    By StotaGurl
    I will never understand why the junk movies that keep coming out of Hollywood continue to be released when a great movie with a screenplay based on an excellent book like this could be made. This book pulled at my heart strings and was full of adventure. Sexy Alpha male vs a troubled world his kid lives in will excite you and leave you breathless!
  • Tank & Audrina are A Perfect Fit - A MUST READ!!!

    By Dolly0622
    I absolutely adore Sybil Bartel’s work!!! Her books are smart, steamy and intriguing!! Did I mention they are hysterically funny too? She is one of my favorites especially when it comes to her smooth, seamless flow and her spectacular world building skills. There hasn’t been a book that she has written that I haven’t loved. Scandalous is no exception. I was hooked from the very first page and I didn’t put it down until I was finished that evening. From the first sentence that came out of Tank’s mouth, I knew he was going to be a fantastic character. I’m thankful to the author for giving us such a strong female lead in Audrina. She has an adorable quirk that was unexpected and charming. He has made some strange lifestyle choices that are also unexpected but heartbreaking. On the surface, the two couldn’t be more different but after you peel back the layers, you realize that they fit together perfectly. This is an amazing story that was beautifully written. While this book and most of Sybil Bartel’s can be read as a stand-alone, all of the books intersect in one way or another with this incredible world she has created in her previous books. This usually includes appearances from some of our most beloved characters. Because of this, every time I open a new Sybil Bartel book, it feels like coming home again and I mean that in the best way possible! Tank and Audrina are already characters that I look forward to coming home to visit again in future books. I highly recommend this book as well as all books by this author!!!!
