Title: Guarding Mr. Fine
As an agent with the CIA’s special activities division, Seth Lang lives for risk—and yet he’s stuck playing bodyguard to the U.S. consul general in Munich. Although Seth’s last assignment nearly killed him, babysitting some desk jockey in a suit sounds way too easy. But when he lays eyes on the new top man, tactical expert Rick Fine, Seth’s thrilled to see just how hard this job is going to get. Mr. Tall, Dark, and Quiet has a body worth guarding—and he requires hands-on attention day and night.
Dispatched to a German consulate to expose the murder of his predecessor, Rick finds himself in an extremely vulnerable position. He needs a man like Seth—in so many ways. This mission will inevitably plunge them both into jeopardy, but each new threat only brings them closer. Rick just hopes that he can keep his deepest, darkest secret hidden—or else risk imperiling a relationship they’re both fighting for their lives to protect.

Personal disclaimer: I did NOT read the other books in this series prior to reading this one. Not because they didn’t interest me, I just didn’t know about them before I saw this book up from grabs. And honestly, this read like a stand alone to me, so I don’t think I missed a lot.
I’m pretty sure that this is the first MM Romance I’ve given a full 5 stars. Usually, the story is all about the chemistry between the two males and yada yada yada. But this? This is amazing! Don’t get me wrong. There is plenty of chemistry going on between these two. In fact we’re treated to an extremely hot closet scene right off the bat, but I digress. There is an actual story, suspense, and a “who done it” that pulled me in, the chemistry was just an added bonus.
After completing a top secret mission, Seth is given an unusual assignment. Bodyguard detail. Not the typical job, so he knew there was something more to the story. So before he had to check in for the new assignment, he decided he needed to blow off a little steam (if you know what I mean). Good news? Steam was blown. Interesting news? Apparently there was more steam to be had.
Rick has been assigned to a top secret mission in Munich. As far as everyone else around him knows, he’s the new interim consul, since the previous one committed suicide. Well. The whole suicide thing is questionable, hence the top secret mission. But when his new bodyguard walks in the room, his top secret mission gets a lot more complicated. In more way than one. Turns out his face isn’t the only thing he remembers, his name rings a bell too. A bell from his past.
There are many different aspects to this story and I’m not gonna ruin them for you. Let’s just say that what should have been a one night stand, becomes way more than either of them planned. But lets not forget that this is also a mystery. Why? Because the previous consul didn’t commit suicide and now someone is trying to kill Rick. Not on Seth’s watch. This is where everything gets interesting.
