I received this book from NetGalley, One More Chapter for an honest review. Thank you!

Up and Close Personal is my first book read by Kathryn Freeman. Up Close and Personal is a sweet rom-com love story between an actor and his female bodyguard. This the first time when I read a book where the woman is a bodyguard and she protects the man.

Zac is an actor who has a stalker and because of that, he needs protection and he finds out that a woman will protect him. At first, he didn’t like the idea to be protected by a woman but he realizes that Kat is a woman that was in the army and she is a professional. I liked Zac because he was funny, respectful, and a sweetheart.

Kat is a professional and for her, the opportunity to protect Zac is very important to prove her boss is ready for more cases. She likes a Zac but she is trying to do her job and to make sure that he is safe. Even if she had feelings for Zac, she didn’t want to risk her reputation because she works in a man world.

I liked the playful relationship between Zac and Kat and I liked how they work together. I liked how Zac pursue her and he didn’t give up on her. Zac fought to be with her and to prove to her that their relationship deserves a chance. 

They both had a difficult past but both of them decided to face the past and at the same time to let go of the past and to look forward. I loved Zac because he is a sweet guy and I loved the relationship between Zac and Kat. I liked Up Close and Personal and I recommend to everyone who wants to read about a woman as a bodyguard.

“You’re perfect for me. It’s me who isn’t good enough for you, but I’m going to spend the rest of my life trying to be”
