Martial arts expert Lewis is the kind of bodyguard who slips under most people’s radar. Quiet, reserved, but constantly on alert, he’ll do his job, keep his charges safe, then relax by reading Shakespeare in his spare time.
When he’s given a case involving a spoiled celebrity singer, Lewis isn’t all that impressed. The job is nothing but babysitting a pretty boy, and he’s used to diplomatic postings with depth and challenge. What could he possibly have in common with the man he’s being forced to look after?
Alex became the envy of many when he and his fellow bandmates won second place in a huge TV talent show. He has more money than he knows what to do with, no life goals, an ex-boyfriend selling a sex tape and now, someone who wants him dead, or at the very least maimed.
Can Lewis keep Alex safe, even when things usually in his control go to hell? Is running to a remote Scottish island the only way for them to stay alive?
Sexy Erotic Exciting 4.5/5 Ms. Scott always does a wonderful job of infusing new life into each one of her books in a series—never the same old thing.
The infusion of the secondary characters from the island played well into the overall premise of the book and added a depth of story. I hope we see more of them in future books.
All in One Place 5/5 Their passion for each other, as well as the island, is something that leaves a lasting impression on the reader.
She perfectly combines the romance with danger; the family drama with steamy sex scenes and the beauty of Stoirmeil with that of her protagonists.
Southern Babes Book Blog 4/5 It was a sweet, beautiful, sexy story.
I love this authors way of keeping you glued to the story. I can't wait for the next!
Bound by Books 4/5 To sum up this story I would say this is a book with a reluctant bodyguard that unexpectedly found a true love.
I loved the way the story was told from both Alex and Lewis' perspectives, while each of them was trying to figure out where the other persons interest lay, they got more and more invested themselves.
Foxylutely Books 5/5 This was another hit in the series for me.
There was lots of sensual kissing going on (hence the title) and plenty of other sexiness added in. Oh and yes the ultimate stance of a sexy Scot in a kilt was nicely included (and we find out what was worn under the kilt too!)
Jim's Blog 5/5 I give Kissing Alex a 5 out of 5 and highly recommended it as an excellent read.
Ms. Scott does it again...another powerful story attesting to the lengths a man will go to protect the one he loves.
Life, Books & More 4/5 I really enjoyed the rustic, wild feel of this book.
This was very much a cute, sweet read as two great guys fall and fall hard.
United Indie Book blog 4/5 Who doesn’t like a hot built bodyguard and hot talented singer.
This story will take you to an island where beauty is everywhere and where love will take hold and never let go.
Prism Book Alliance 4/5 This was a great addition to the series and I’m already looking forward to Roman’s story.
I could understand the need Lewis had to move away and experience the bigger world that runs right alongside the feeling of ‘coming home’ when he returns.
I have found that when R.J.Scott writes about her scenes and about different places ,that she gives us so much descriptions and history of every characters that it is so great ,it makes us feel like we are there with them.
Sinfully Sweet Promotions 4/5 I had a huge smile on my face when I finished the story and I could practically feel the love and joy between Lewis and Alex.
I thoroughly enjoyed RJ Scott's descriptive writing, I felt like I was in Scotland more than once and enjoyed the attention to detail.
Making it Happen 5/5 I think if this series just keeps going on and on, I'll continue to be a really happy camper...can't wait for the next one!
While yes, they do get down and dirty, the kissing...oh, the kissing.
What follows is a sweet slow burn romance with just enough uncertainty and angst to keep things exciting.
But the real anticipation comes from whether or not the bodyguard and his client are going to not just hook up but end up happily ever after.
Bayou Book Junkie 4.5/5 I just loved the dynamics between the two of them and how well they fit together and with the rest of the people on the island.
All in all, a fantastic addition to the series, fast-paced and interesting, with very likable characters and a great storyline that kept me at the edge of my seat!
Alpha Book Club 4/5 GO READ THEM ALL!!! You won’t regret it!
And wait until you find out what is in Alex’s overstuffed, overweight suitcase – you’ll be surprised in a manner most pleasant! All in all, this is a solid four star read. You won’t be disappointed!!
A unique story that is part of a larger ensemble series, a great connection between the two main characters, a few well written secondary characters, a little excitement, some yummy sex, and a freaking Scottish island! Oh, yeah…. and a kilt. And kilt sex. Drool.
Kissing Alex is a fun standalone read (#6 from the Bodyguards Inc series) that did a fantastic balancing act between sweetness and a bit of bite.
