Gambling on the Bodyguard by Sarah Ballance

Gambling on the Bodyguard (What Happens in Vegas) - Sarah Ballance



He’ll guard her body all night long...

Ski instructor Ellie Montgomery hits Vegas during a romance convention to meet the man of her dreams...only, the man of her dreams isn’t the cover model she’s there to see. He’s the hot-as-sin bodyguard who catches her sneaking in the back door of a meet-and-greet, and he seems more than ready to do what it takes to prove he’s twice the man her pretty boy crush could ever be.

Jax Mathis couldn’t resist snagging a date with Ellie, but he didn’t count on the attraction being more than physical. They connect on a level he didn’t think possible—and he can’t run fast enough. She makes him want things he thought he’d never have, and maybe, just maybe, they’re within reach. But to have it, he’ll have to face the one mountain he swore he’d never climb...and with no guarantee she’ll be waiting on the other side.




My thoughts:




I saw this book on Netgalley and the synopsis sounded interesting so I requested it and as you can tell I got approved.

The book started out good for me in the first two chapters I liked both characters. Ellie was funny, light and was snarky.

Jax, the same minus the snarkyness, but he still was pretty funny. When they first meet it is really entertaining and fun to read, but unfortunately after that it went downhill for me.

I kind of liked both characters when they were themselves and not thinking about the other one. Once they got together or just thought of the other one it got bad.

Some of it was over the top and total cliché other things just dragged out for ever.

I really don’t like, not to finish books when I reviewing books but this book, I just could not finish it. I got to about 37 % when I finally gave up.

I rate this book at 1★ and not 0.5 because I did like the first two chapters, but that was about it until I did not finish it after 37 % of the book.
