The Golden Rule in being a Bodyguard 101:
Never get involve with a client no matter
how unbelievably sexy she might be.
Personal bodyguard Jax Irizarry retired from the business ten years ago and opened up his own company called Alpha Male Incorporated. He was content no longer being thrown into the danger zone and got enough pleasure from working behind a desk. So, why did this best friend Frank Chantel want to hire him to protect his goddaughter/singer Sahara ‘Coco' Chantel?
Sahara Chantel reluctantly agreed to a bodyguard to please her uncle. She was more focused on getting her singing career off the ground not an overzealous fan. Anyway, it wasn't like she was going to be attracted to her bodyguard because weren't most of them older men with gray hair?
Sahara's preconceived notions of bodyguards were shot to hell when she walked inside her den and spotted the tall, blond and sexy Jax Irizarry waiting for her.

"I have no doubt that it will be huge once it gets the attention of the right people, and be compulsory reading in schools one day. For me it was on par with Harper Lee, JD Salinger or John Steinbeck as American social commentary…" - Mark Williams International

"Don't get excited." Jake lifted Char's necklace over her head. "I'm not going for your precious parts."
He zipped the amulet into a pocket in her flight pants.
"Okay, Meadowlark." He secured his harness and punched the ignition. "Let's get the hell off this rock."
