✪ Room Mate ✪ Katie Ashley ✪ Release Blitz ✪

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.

ARC received for an honest review

Now, the princess/president's daughter etc falling for their security man is not a new story - however it is one that I will always pick up and read.

I have been waiting for Caroline's story since I started reading this series.  I knew, that with 2 protective brothers and the president for her father that she was going to have her struggles.

I love love love that she (nor her brothers) are spoiled little rich kids, riding on their father's coat tails.

I adore that she has her own life and career, and despite her family, she speaks her mind and lets them all know what she is thinking.

And hellooooooo sexy secret service man!  Ty is sweet and wonderful and oh. so. sexy.  I mean, you can't blame a girl for falling for him, as I did right along with Caroline.

There is sexual tension up the wazoo with our lovelies *fans self* along with plenty of witty banter and just all together wonderfulness.  This pair are definitely my favourite couple in this series.

I loved getting to see where Barrett and Thorn and their ladies are at, and the guys over protectiveness of Caroline is both sweet and terrifying lol. I want them to be my brothers.

I really have enjoyed the Running Mates series, and I am looking forward to what Ms Ashley brings us next.
