My Perspective

Move over all you swoon worthy characters, there is a new cowboy in town! If ever there was a man to be secretly married to, it would be Jack Thorn. My goodness this is a cowboy that will be in your mind for awhile. Not only is he a good guy, but he’s fiercely protective and loyal. And let’s face it, nothing melts my heart more than a man who is good with a baby! This book is so much more than a swoon filled love story though.

First of all, this book kept me on my toes. I was so anxious and nervous for what was coming next for the characters! This is one of those books that you just have to read in one sitting if time permits, and if it doesn’t then you’d better read at every single opportunity you get. The thrill of the chase from the biker gang was unexpected, but a welcome addition to the story line. You feel as if you are right there is the book thanks to Dana Mentink’s gifted writing abilities. And as if a swoony hero and fast paced action wasn’t enough, you have Shannon Livingston. Sure, this woman has guts in helping a mother in need, but what really strikes me about her is the way her character grew throughout this story. She had so much to overcome,and you can’t help but root for her the entire time. I wanted her to just run back into Jack’s arms and declare her love for him, but that wouldn’t have made a good story. No, the way Dana Mentink wrote her character and really had Shannon slowly evolve was perfect. Not only did it keep me more interested in her character specifically, but it made me enjoy the story that much more.

If you’re looking for an action packed novel that will keep you guessing this book is one you will want to pick up today! I always enjoy books by Dana Mentink, but I think this one has become my new favorite! I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


Guest Post from Dana Mentink


I’ve spent a bit of time in emergency rooms lately. Not to complain, mind you. The asthma related treatments worked like a charm and we were blessed by good care, so I am not grateful. There’s a bonus, too. The emergency room is a great place for people watching! Hour upon hour I spent surveying patients, relatives, nurses and doctors. I came away pondering what it must be like to work in the strange bustle that is an emergency room. That’s where character Shannon Livingston was born.


The E.R doc and nurses must be brilliant problem solvers with nerves of steel because they never know what will roll through their doors. Since they are not responsible for follow up care, they have only a short term relationship with their patients. But what would happen, my fictional mind wanted to know, if one emergency room treatment ensnared Shannon in a “run for your life” scenario? And what if her incredible life saving skills weren’t nearly enough to save her own life, or the baby she’s suddenly become responsible for? Ah me! The perfect scenario for a suspense novel, no? I hope you enjoy Cowboy Bodyguard. I can promise it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
