    Fun sexy read

    Ready to meet the "man of her dreams" Ellie Montgomery can't believe her bad luck when her invitation to the invite only get together falls in the toilet. She's lusted after the man gracing the cover of her romance novels forever and now it seems her only chance might have literally just gone down the drain. So what else is a girl to do than sneak her way in!! Unfortunately, the super hot bodyguard guarding the door doesn't see it that way! Loved this one from the very first page. Their hilarious first meeting is only the beginning between Ellie and Jax (the bodyguard). Their chemistry is sizzling, and their connection seems soul deep. This is a quick light read but the author packed a fabulous story on to the pages. This is one I highly recommend.

    sexy delightfully fun story!

    When Ellie comes to Vegas intent on meeting the romance book cover model of her dreams, to her surprise it's his bodyguard Jax that captures her attention and gives her a weekend to remember. But while a sexy weekend of 'What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas' might be something some people can do, for Jax and Ellie it becomes a lot more complicated when they discover that they they could be the right fit for a future together - if they can trust that their feelings for each other are worth exploring further. I really enjoyed this story! It's high on the sex quota, as Jax and Ellie share an instant attraction and Jax is determined to show Ellie a good time 'wink wink'. But while they have the sexual chemistry necessary for a quick connection, they also share a deeper emotional one, a unique understanding of each other that goes beyond skin deep - and one that scares Jax as it could mean the end of his self imposed hiatus on caring deeply for anyone since the death of his sister and the estrangement of his parents as a result. There's the obvious problem of the fact that they are from different places - Ellie from Colorado (Jax's nickname for Ellie too, which was a cute touch) and Jax from Las Vegas and that there's going to have to be a compromise from one of them if they're going to end up together. But everything was handled in such a way that the result is a sweetly satisfying happy ending to go with the steamy romance. There were lots of laughs too, and it was a fun story that was hard to put down. The city of Las Vegas is well represented and made for a great background setting. 4.5 stars!

    Sensual and sweet

    I'm not usually a fan of insta-love stories but have been known to enjoy one that's well done and GAMBLING ON THE BODYGUARD was. But then again, I enjoy Ms. Ballance's writing so I may be biased. Ellie Montgomery is in Vegas at a romance convention to meet her dream man, romance novel cover model Willie Focker, but a bathroom accident results in the loss of her prized ticket - one of very few - to a private party with the model. Ellie is determined to not miss this opportunity and what's a girl to do? Sneak in through the backdoor, of course. Unfortunately for her, the hulking bodyguard at the door is quick to put the kibosh on her plan and ensnare her attention. Ellie is very sweet and reserved and her instant attraction to the bodyguard takes her by surprise but she's in Vegas and open to new experiences for the duration of her stay. Jax Mathis can't resist the beauty trying to sneak into the ballroom and very uncharacteristic of him, he elicits a promise from her to spend time with him in exchange for entry into the ballroom. I enjoyed Ellis and Jax's characters because together they were cute and sweet, and their connection was intense. Even though they knew that their time together was short, it didn't stop them from enjoying each other's company, especially considering that they both came with a lot of emotional baggage. They gave each other reason to deal with their baggage and reach out for a chance at an amazing relationship, even though it took Jax a bit longer to get there. GAMBLING ON THE BODYGUARD is different from the other books I have read from the author because it's more emotional but it was still a great read.

    Entertaining...

    Sarah Ballance writes lovable characters that are little bit awkward. On the verge of meeting the man of her dreams Ellie couldn't be more excited. But a series of mishaps and a sexy bodyguard have her questioning her choices. With Sarah Ballance there is always a story that makes you sad to see it end and for me wanting to make the journey all over again. I received an ARC of Gambling on the Bodyguard in exchange for an honest review.
