From the time I was a kid, I knew I wanted a job helping people. After serving in the Rifles regiment of the British Army, I focused my civilian career on becoming a bodyguard to the rich and famous. For a Cockney Brit, I never imagined a twist of fate landing me a position in the United States Secret Service and protecting the President’s son. But then my boss made an unexpected request: leave my current placement to move in with his only daughter to give an added layer of protection against the threats she had been receiving. I’d never lived with a woman who was off-limits to me. It wasn’t just that Caroline had a boyfriend. She was my best friend’s sister, and my boss’s daughter. But the longer we’re in such close quarters together, the greater the temptation grows, but I know I'll lose everything if I pursue her.

Growing up as the only girl with two overbearing older brothers, I’m no stranger to being overprotected. Just as I finished up college and prepared to truly dip my toes into the adult world, my father was elected President of the United States, which added a whole new level of protection with the Secret Service team attached to me. Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly be more smothered, I began receiving threats, and my family decided it wasn’t enough to just have an agent living down the hall from me. Nope, I was to have one move in with me, and not just any agent, but Ty Frasier—my brother, Barrett’s best friend, and my brother, Ty’s, head agent. While most women would enjoy living with a sexy, buff Brit, having a roommate threw a wrench into all my plans. Especially when I began noticing Ty was so much more than a hot guy—he was someone I could fall for.

**Stand-alone set in the world of Running Mate and Office Mate**



Caroline was the only daughter of the president. Despite the fact that they didn't grow up with a silver spoon in their mouths, they had to adhere with the security measures that comes with the fact that their father is the leader of the free world. She was used to overbearing brothers, and just getting used to her Secret Service team when a threat comes in again, just when she was thinking she could have a bit of normal and freedom being away from her family. She ended up with a hot secret service for a room mate. This could be more dangerous for her heart - because Ty wasn't just a double threat, he was a triple threat: he's hot, he reads, he can cook and he has a British accent.

Ty Frasier just wanted to help people. That's why he joined the British Army, and then ended up with a stint as a Secret Service Agent with both Thorn and Barrett who both ended up as really great friends. They were safe. But Caroline was another story. He wasn't used to a girl roomie, never had them before. But she has a boyfriend, so she's off limits. But the longer they spent time together, the attraction just gets stronger. So what happens when Caroline was finally single? Will he take the move?

Both characters are just easy to love. Caroline, despite the fact that she was the president's daughter is very down to earth and kind to everyone. She was loyal to Perry when they were together and didn't act on the attraction she had with Ty. I love her character, she's strong, determined and brave. Ty, omg. He's a charmer. I'd like one of him for Christmas. He's someone you'd be lucky to have to. He's a total gentleman, and someone that would take a bullet for you.

I am still in love with Caroline's family. They're the most amazing people there is. So down to earth and just wants the best for their children. 

Room Mate is easy, sweet, filled with swoony characters and sexy read. I enjoyed reading this book not just because of old, familiar characters that I knew once, but Room Mate made me laugh and squirm at the same time. Total must-read and just perfect for the holidays!
