My Bodyguard by Derek Adams

Title: My Bodyguard
Author: Derek Adams
Publisher: MLR Press
Genre: MM, Contemporary
Pages: 34
Reviewer: Redz

Publisher’s Blurb
Jeff's desire to go to college and live a normal life is undermined by his crime boss father's insistence that he be accompanied at all times by a bodyguard. Jeff does his best to despise Vic Torres, but his disdain is gradually turned to desire by the man's quiet charm and his undeniable sex appeal. Try as he might, Jeff can't breach the barricades Vic has erected between them until one fateful night when their quiet world is rocked by violence.

Derek Adams has a great coming of age story with My Bodyguard.  Jeff is pretty sheltered. His father has had him go to all the right schools, but Jeff is awkward and has a hard time making friends.  Vic has always had it rough. He is a tough guy who is a few years older than Jeff.  Jeff has secretly wanted Vic for a long time. Vic tries to keep it professional but Jeff is hard to resist.
I liked the chemistry between these two characters. The term opposites attract really applies here. Mr. Adams has a great start for Vic and Jeff in this book. I hope it becomes more in future books. This little taste has made me want more from these two in the future.
