This is the third book in the Tough Love series though it can be read as a standalone without any issues. I’ve enjoyed this series and why some of the espionage side of thing are often over simplified I think they are all enjoyable reads from the relationships aspect which is of course the most important part of the stories.
So we have met Seth previously and he is a character I liked from the off with his humour and wit so I was happy to get his story. As the title suggest he is charged with Guarding Mr Fine who just happens to be the Mr Fine he had a rather fine rather hot encounter with just days previously. Suddenly the deployment to the US consulate in Munich doesn’t seem so bad. Maybe a bit of a cliché but they have to meet somewhere right?
Rick Fine is new to his position as the U.S. Consul General where he is tasked with unearthing what happened to his predecessor at the Consulate. The placement of his new bodyguard could prove awkward but the two men are professionals and get on, though they soon have difficulty in keeping it above the sheets and so we get a seriously hot and explosive story with some good humour and wit between the two. However Mr Fine has secrets that Seth is bound to discover that will affect them on all levels, will their relationship survive the mission or is it just a result of the situation they are in?
Another enjoyable addition to the series which I hope to see more of as there are other characters that I would like to see more of still.

In this steamy novel of seduction and international intrigue, two brave men are stripped of their defenses—and exposed to dangers and desires that simmer below the surface.
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.
