Crikey a Bodyguard




She’s got the brains, he’s got the muscle …

When Kelly Bridge’s parents insist on employing a bodyguard for her protection, she’s not happy. Okay, so maybe not every woman is on the cusp of developing a vaccine against a potential biological terrorist attack – but crikey, it’s not like she’s a celebrity!

Ben Jacobs flunked spectacularly out of school, so he knows his new client Dr Kelly Bridge spells trouble for him. But on a conference trip to Rome he finds things are worse than he thought. Not only is he falling for the brilliant scientist, he’s also become horribly aware she’s in grave danger.

As they go on the run, dodging bullets and kidnappers, can he resist his feelings and keep her safe?

Light-Hearted Read!  Stars 4.5


Having enjoyed ‘Oh Crumbs’, I jumped at the chance to read Kathryn Freeman’s latest rom-com . and I’m glad I did!

Kelly Bridge is a scientist, and a very smart one at that. Working on a potential world-wide breakthrough, her parents – both imminent in their own scientific fields – are concerned about her safety and hire a bodyguard to protect her .. much to Kelly’s horror. Ben Jacobs was a career soldier, good at what he does but paper qualifications are not his thing. Now working for a private security company, he is assigned as Kelly’s close protection. These two are as far apart as chalk and cheese; how will being thrown together 24/7 impact on their lives?

This is a book with lots going for it; a solid story, likeable characters, a surprise or two along the way with plenty of entertainment value. It’s certainly a different setting to the usual rom-com read, with quite a few ups and downs. Light-hearted, but with a serious element to the story and a bit of mystery thrown in, it kept my attention throughout. Opposites definitely attract, but once the situation which threw them together in the first place is removed, what then? All you need to do to find out is read the novel for yourself! Another excellent offering, and well worth 4.5 stars.

My thanks to publisher Choc-Lit for my copy, and to Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part in this Blog Tour. All opinions are, as always, entirely my own.

Meet the Author


Crikey - Kate Freeman-17 cropped


A former pharmacist, I’m now a medical writer who also writes romance. Some days a racing heart is a medical condition, others it’s the reaction to a hunky hero.

When two teenage boys and a husband who asks every Valentine’s Day whether he has to buy a card (yes, he does), any romance is all in my head. Then again, his unstinting support of my career change proves love isn’t always about hearts and flowers – and heroes come in many disguises.
