#AudibleReview ~~ The Bodyguard by Katherine Center

Rating:   Louisa’s 4 Blush Review My first book by this author and surely not my last! I listened to the audible (thank you @NetGalley and @macmillan.audio for the chance to listen early!  If you are a romance reader you have read this trope before – superstar falls in love with their bodyguard but Katherine Center did it a little differently and it’s probably why I enjoyed this so much!
