Plot overview: Cameron Whitbury—billionaire aerospace mogul and engineer--has a stalker, so her friends talk her into hiring Jude, badass extraordinaire, as her bodyguard and personal security team. Laughs and sexy times ensue.
First of all, I read a review of this one somewhere that complained that it wasn’t deep enough for their liking. Well, you know what? I’m not looking for deep, angsty, and emotional reads when I pick up a rom com. I want light, sexy fluff—and that’s exactly what The Mogul and the Muscle delivers. There’s a few laughs, there’s some killer sexual chemistry between Jude and Cam, there’s a super smart and successful STEM heroine, and there’s a muscle-y badass bodyguard. That’s more than enough for me. If I want a deeply emotional read that’ll wreck me for days I’ll look elsewhere. But this light, funny, low-angst, feel-good read was EXACTLY what I was looking for when I downloaded.
Now that I’ve said that, let me count the ways I adore Jude:
Cam is a pretty awesome heroine, too, but because I loved Jude so much, her awesomeness is somewhat diminished. But:
So, long-story-short, Jude alone is worth the price of admission on this one. But overall, it’s one hell of a ride and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
No rehab needed. This one’s clean and sober.
