Review: Every Move He Makes by Barbara Elsborg

Every Move He Makes by Barbara Elsborg
Published May 7th 2013 by Samhain Publishing, Ltd.
Keeping an eye on his charge isn’t easy. Keeping his hands off? Impossible…

It took attending his own funeral to force Logan to accept a new life as an undercover MI6 agent. That doesn’t make his latest assignment any less aggravating. Babysitting a Russian pop star with delusions that someone’s trying to kill him.

Other than an inexplicable attraction Logan ruthlessly suppresses, he couldn’t have less in common with the irritating, arrogant rich kid. He’s even prepared to walk away—until very real bullets start flying.

After his mother’s death, Zak Kochenkov’s life unravels in an impenetrable haze of grief, drugs and alcohol—until one bodyguard candidate stands out. Except his hopes of having some fun with that guard’s body evaporate when he realizes Logan is buttoned up tighter than a clam.

The first thing Logan learns is that his charge won’t do as he’s told. And there’s some secret behind his haunted eyes that shakes Logan’s resolve to keep him at arm’s length. Because he knows if he lets passion close his eyes, that’s when danger will find them both…

My Thoughts
Barbara Elsborg never ceases to amaze me. The woman can tackle a genre and just hit it out of the ballpark on her first try! I’ve read most of her romance novels, and recently I tried a crime/horror/drama book, which left me floored. Now with her most recent MM book Every Move He Makes, I’m convinced Elsborg can do no wrong.

This novel was intense, romancey, and downright GOOOODDDD!!! Logan and Zak were a perfect combo of high action, heated chemistry and full-on hotness!

When Logan takes on a job as Zak’s bodyguard, the sparks begin to fly immediately upon impact. Throughout the novel, they toss us through the twists and turns of being on the run from someone attempting to kill Zak. I like the slow build up with the sudden explosion of sparks between these two. They were simply great together. What I loved most was Logan’s constant attempt to help Zak put his life back together both physically and emotionally. These two really embarked on a journey of adventure and self-discovery.

I hope Every Move He Makes is not Elsborg’s last attempt at MM because she seems to have a knack for the right combination of intensity, drama, romance and sincerity that makes this genre enjoyable. Well done!
