PENT UP: Mix business with pleasure and take cover.

Ruben Oso moves to Manhattan to start his life over as a low-rent bodyguard and stumbles into a gig in a swanky Park Avenue penthouse. What begins as executive protection turns personal working for a debonair zillionaire who makes Ruben question everything about himself.

Watching over financial hotshot Andy Bauer puts Ruben in an impossible position. He knows zero about shady trading and his cocky boss lives barricaded in a glass tower with wall-to-wall secrets and hot-and-cold-running paranoia. Can the danger be real? Is Andy for real?

What’s a bullet catcher to do? Ruben knows his emotions are out of control even as he races to untangle a high-priced conspiracy and his crazy feelings before somebody gets dead. If his suspicions are right, Andy will pay a price neither can afford, and Ruben may discover there’s no way to guard a heart.


Pent Up by author Damon Suede has the story of Ruben and Andy. Ruben is trying to put his life to rights. He is hot tempered, ex-alcoholic, and finally getting his life back. His basic work experience is beating the crap out of people. Not something you put on a resume.
Andy is desperate need of a bodyguard. He is very honest looking, works for Apex Securities, and runs a huge hedge fund. He is used to being in control. Ruben turns his world upside down.
I found that these two are really hot together. They each bring to the table something the other needs. I liked the balance of ying and yang they have. No one is a clear good person in this book, I liked that both of the characters have shades of gray in them. To me that made them more realistic. When you want a great story plot and lots of heat this is the book to pick up.
