No Rules. No Limits.

Party girl Tyler Gillette has just one rule: no football players. As the daughter of the owner of the San Antonio Hawks, she grew up in the shadow of the sport and her father’s enormous wealth. She was even named Tyler because he wanted a boy. Life couldn’t have drawn up a better play for turning her into a wild child—until that same life is threatened by someone from the past . . .

Former Hawks running back Rafe Ortiz has a few rules of his own. First, no weaknesses. Second, no babysitting spoiled football princesses. But his new career as a bodyguard means he’s responsible for protecting the beautiful Tyler Gillette from her mysterious stalker. But keeping his hands off her might be harder than keeping her safe . . .


I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Bodyguards. Of course, they are going to be hot. I mean, we all watched The Bodyguard, right? It’s just really easy for a girl to fall for the bodyguard because that man keeps you safe, your life is sort of in their hands, they do everything to protect you, and they are always with you. I think this is what I really liked about the book. I liked the heroine, so reading about her and the hero was simply a joy. Plus, the little suspense injected into the story elevated it from being just another sports contemporary romance.

However, this book is far from perfect. I love the story, but I think there are little things, details, that still needed to be ironed out. The book didn’t feel as smooth and as flowing as I would have liked. I enjoyed it a lot, yes, but I would have really loved it if the imperfections were removed. Still, I trust Ms. Holt and her ability to give her fans and readers a good love story, which is why I will definitely be watching out for more books in this series.


Desiree Holt has lived a life of excitement that brings the color to her writing. She was a summer fishing guide, a summer field hand where she was one of only three women working, a member of a beginning ski team that skied in competition (and no, no broken bones!). She spent several years in the music business representing every kind of artist from country singer to heavy metal rock bands. For several years she also ran her own public relations agency handling any client that interested her. She is twice a finalist for an EPIC E-Book Award, a nominee for a Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award, winner of the first 5 Heart Sweetheart of the Year Award at The Romance Studio, and is published by four different houses. Romance Junkies said of her work: “Desiree Holt is the most amazing erotica author of our time and each story is more fulfilling then the last.”
