New Adult Bodyguard Romance
I love Marie Lu so when I saw this book despite it not being like her other books (or honestly the type of book I’d typically grab) I knew I had to give it a shot. I am glad I did. I did think the story was way too slow to start but overall I thought it was a fun and cheesy story. The characters were very interesting and I liked how deep we got into them with various flashbacks and inner musings. Winter Young is the world’s biggest pop star currently so he’s surprised when he is approached by a secret government agency to play spy for them at a private party for a billionaire villain’s daughter’s birthday. Sydney is a contractor hoping for a promotion to actually work for the agency. She’s a great agent but is not at all thrilled to hear who she will be partnered with on her most recent mission. Winter and Sydney both having some instant attraction but they also both are fighting it. The romance piece is a lot of flirting but not much beyond that. Overall it was a light, quick, and fun story. I gave it 3.5 stars rounded up for the great characters.
