Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Xavier Neal comes an all-new, witty, forced-proximity romantic suspense stand-alone novel....

The assignment is simple. 

Don't let the client die. 

Don't let her get kidnapped.

Don't sleep with her. 

It's the last part that unexpectedly complicates things for me after I'm introduced to the most beautiful and brilliant woman I could've ever envisioned. 

And it only gets worse when we have to stash ourselves away in a small town where our calculated cover is to be a recently engaged couple. 

My new mission is now significantly harder.

Don't let her hate what's for dinner. 

Don't let anyone else make her laugh more than I do.

And, most importantly, don't let myself actually fall for someone again. 

After all, my job isn't to love my boss' sister. 

It's to stop an unidentified threat from taking her - or die trying.

Blake is simply amazing!

I love love love Blake!! She is a nerdy, fact throwing, smart and funny girl…plus that job?! Amazing! She just made me smile more than once while listening to her story. Did I mention a quick thinker? Yes she is the whole package that makes a memorable character. Bronx is no slouch himself. While he is in full protection detail I would not want to mess with him. I enjoyed how he felt an instant connection to Blake upon seeing her picture.

This one is filled with action, danger, suspense and did I mention action? I really loved it all. The story, the characters and the attraction between the two MC. I did listen to this one on audio. Both narrators did an excellent job.

Entertaining!

I read it before, and I liked it. Bronx and Blake's story is very entertaining, fast-paced, sexy, action packed, and suspenseful. Bronx, a bodyguard, is handsome, and protective. Blake is an amazing character, very smart, and funny. I loved to follow them in their suspenseful journey to love. Looking forward for more books written by Xavier Neal. Lacy Laurel and Alan Carlson did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed it! #TheFlock

Loved this story!

Lacy and Alan knocked this audio out of the park! Lacy was perfect for our insanely intelligent FMC. I love the attitude and depth she always brings to her performances. I loved the opposites attract romance in this book, with the brilliant Blake and the patient Bronx. I adored how Bronx loved Blake. He saw through her 'differences' as most would say, and didn't think any differently of her. It was amazing to see a great neurodivergent character get some love. Highly recommend this one!

Bulletproof

Xavier Neal is a new author to me. I really enjoyed this book. I relate so strongly with these two characters. Blake is a beautiful, curvy, intelligent woman. Bronx is her bodyguard who is mainly all brawn. They balance each other out. He makes her step out of her comfort zone and try new things. Lacy Laurel and Alan Carlson did a fantastic job narrating.

bodyguard/forced proximity goodness!

This is my 2nd book by Xavier Neal and I loved this book!
I love a forced proximity/bodyguard trope, add in a beautiful brainy heroine, a smoldering and sexy alpha and I'm all in!

Bronx and Blake are paired up when her twin brother hires Bronx to protect her after threats of kidnapping her.

Let me just say that Xavier writes some dirty scenes and I liked it! There was no doubt that I was listening to a spicy romance. I always like when an author can add the heat with a suspense themed book.

Alan is a newish narrator for me and he brought all the sexy swagger and macho vibe of Bronx . When he spoke Latino... whoosh, there went the panties... incinerated!
I don't often get to listen to Lacy, but when I do I'm always impressed with her voice! She was able to bring Blake to life for me. I love this type of character who is so smart, but not great with social cues. And dayum, Blake was freaky in the sheets!!

Perfect amount of suspense and romance

Full of suspense, romance, and a drool-worthy hero, Bulletproof is a story not to miss. I was hooked from the first chapter and I could not stop listening until the end. I loved the instant connection between Bronx and Blake. Having a relationship was taboo and that made their chemistry even hotter. The suspense was just the right amount to keep me on my seat. this was my first story from Xavier Neal, and I want more!

Lacy Laurel and Alan Carlson are a great narrating team. They have complimenting voices so that the story flows smoothly. I was able to get lost in the narration and it became like a movie in my mind. I hope to hear a lot more of this narrating pair.

Blake & Bronx

Xavier, it seems that every book I read by you, you up the ante and just capture me in a different way. I thought The Gamble was my fav but freaaaakkkkkk Bulletproof is now my fav by you !!!!

Blake, ugh this character speaks to me the most. She is freaking intelligent, not just smart, intelligent. And her twin brother wants to make sure she is safe. But in his attempt to do so, he doesn’t realize that he gives her the one thing she has needed.

Bronx, tasked with a job that would be life or death to him. If he lets anything happen to the target, he could just say sayonara and won’t even get to take pleasure in the reward for handling his task.

I absolutely loved reading their relationship build through the book. Blake was such a relatable character for me, I loved her so. Xavier really does her research when writing her books, and you can tell by how detailed and accurate she is. And that epilogue was everything to me.

Recommended for those that like steamy forbidden romances between the bodyguard and his guard.

Lacy Laurel!!!! One of my favorite female narrators was the perfect Blake for me. Alan Carlson was a smexy Bronx. Combine the two and they took this book up a notch!!

Blake and Bronx!

Blake is brilliant when it comes to the ground-breaking inventions she creates for her job however as a result it has caused her life skills to fall behind. When she finds herself in danger her brother arranges for Blake to protect her.

Bronx has shown that he will guard his clients with his life while keeping the relationship strictly professional. When it comes to Blake it soon becomes apparent that the first applies however the second will not and that is when the fun really begins.

Bronx and Blake are perfect together as he appreciates her just the way she is as they take us on a steamy and suspenseful ride. The performances of the narrators were great as they brought out the quirkiness of Blake and the alpha protector in Bronx. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

Action packed

I really enjoyed this storyline. With good strong stubborn characters it’s very entertaining and quite funny in places. A fantastic performance from both narrators really does bring this book to life. I’m really looking forward to more from this author and his narrators hopefully.

Forbidden Romantic Suspense

Bulletproof by Xavier Neal is a forbidden romantic suspense that I listened to on audio narrated by Lacy Laurel and Alan Carlson.

This is the first book of Xavier's that I have read and it won't be my last. I loved the relationship that bloomed between Bronx and Blake. The chemistry between them was off the charts! I really enjoyed getting both of their points of view throughout the book. It really brought the story to life.

Lacy and Alan did a great job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would highly recommend this book if you like forbidden romances, forced-proximity romances, bodyguard romances, or romantic suspense.

Stand alone entertainment

The narration was really good. Lacy Laurel and Alan Carlson made the story easy to listen to. I'm sure that I liked the story more because it was performed as an audiobook than I would have if I had only read the written words.

This book is a complete stand alone. I liked that the female lead was intelligent and there was very little miscommunication drama. The relationship seemed to go from 0 to 100 really quickly, but overall I enjoyed the story and liked the characters and would read more romantic suspense from the author.

New romantic suspense!!

Give me a good romantic suspense and I am a happy person! This is my first book by Xavier Neal, and it won't be my last. We meet Bronx. He is given a mission. Keep the brilliant Blake safe and away from kidnappers. But most of all, don't sleep with her. Bronx is an alpha male, and his protective instinct for this woman kicks in immediately. He doesn't realize who he is dealing with! Blake is quite the woman! I love her! Smart, creating cutting edge information, she is a prime target. And though she is brainy, she has quite the wit. She doesn't want this craziness but will take the bodyguard since her brother is insisting. Will Bronx be able to keep her safe? Will the two be able to keep their attraction at bay? Witty banter, thrilling suspense, and a couple we can't help but love, this is a fun listen!! I will be looking for more by Neal!

Lacy Laurel and Alan Carlson are a great team. I love both of these narrators and were excited to see them working together. Laurel is wonderful playing strong women, and her portrayal of Blake is spot on! Carlson gives us the manly Bronx with his commanding tone. I enjoyed this listen!

Brilliant!!

Bulletproof is a fabulously written romantic suspense with forbidden love elements. The storyline and the cast are very well-crafted, intriguing, and appealing. Dr Blake Rothwell is a brilliant tech guru and on the top of the hierarchy at Haworth. Bronx Bradford is appointed to guard and protect Blake from the threat of death or kidnapping. As educated, clever, and intelligent as Blake is at her work, she lacks real life and relationship experience. Bronx has his own dilemma; his mission is to protect her at all costs and not let feelings become love or full-blown distraction, endangering Blake's life. I really liked the contrasting personalities and the dynamics between the two; it was refreshing, humorous, and witty with a decent amount of tension. Their story is fast-paced, exciting, steamy, with some light-hearted moments that I really enjoyed.

The narration is outstanding! Alan Carlson and Lacy Laurel's depiction of the characters' personalities, emotions, chemistry, and intensity found in the scenes were perfect. They made the characters real and the story even more enjoyable. Bulletproof is a very well-written romantic suspense; immediately, I was drawn into the story. I'm definitely recommending this audiobook.
