It has all the great elements of a christian romance novel--a strong hero, romantic tension, and a great storyline.

When I received a copy of "Her Reluctant Bodyguard" to review, I was skeptical. In my experience, Christian romance is often overly saccharine, with an overtly evangelical bent that often supersedes any real artistry in the romance relationship. But after reading only the first few pages of the book, I knew this book was going to be different.

I know it's tempting, when you see books with only five-star reviews, to assume that it's all the author's friends padding the Amazon numbers, but this book is the real thing. In fact, when I finished the book, I immediately thought, this book could easily have been released as a major single title with a big NY house. The quality of writing is absolutely stellar, the character development is reasonable and engaging, the story is touching, and the resolution is satisfying.

And to say a word about the Christian element, I have to give Jennette Green the highest praise. I've been hoping to find a Christian novel to read that doesn't shy away from the reality of life. When you're a woman/man in your late twenties who is still unmarried, chances are, you're going to struggle a little bit more with your past and past relationships than when you're a fresh young thing in college, meeting the man of your dreams. It's a different experience, both from a spiritual perspective, and a physical/emotional one. She treated this story beautifully, along with being realistic about the physical and emotional attraction between two people.

After I read the book and reviewed it, I gave it some time to sink in to my psyche, and then I read it again, just to make sure that the first time wasn't a fluke. It wasn't. The writing and the story and the reality were really as good as I thought they were. This is a book that will go on my favorites shelf.

Jennette Green doesn't disappoint. Her Reluctant Bodyguard is an incredible book. Alexa and Jamison connect in a way that isn't easy to create. There is tension and conflict, yet soon tenderness enters into the story and Alexa and Jamison can't quit thinking about each other. Before you know it these two are fighting to stay apart. Their attraction is believable, not forced. Jennette combines values with reality. I really didn't want this book to end. If you like romance and you like clean reads with a ton of sexual tension, this is the book for you.

This book had a good basic storyline--author meets popular rock star, rock star hires author to write his biography, author joins rock star on tour in order to get to know him for the book, death threats follow them, and author has to deal with apathetic bodyguard. I thought it would be a good read. From the first chapter, the heroine, Alexa, bothered me. From the first chapter she criticized, belittled, and treated the bodyguard like a servant, and therefore lower than her (literally, since she's taller than him). And she continues to treat him this way when, unsurprisingly, he reacts accordingly. She acts very immaturely, taking every chance to get away from her bodyguard when there are death threats coming at her. It comes out of nowhere when he starts trying to "win her heart." Why on Earth would a guy want to be with a girl who treats him that way?! Also, every time they go out to eat, or to try the chocolates in the different European countries, Alexa compares the food to ambrosia. It was really over-done. As for the antagonist, it really could have been more original. I thought it was very predictable.

What a surprise! This is a mixture of everything, first of all Christian fiction, romance, tension (so much you really cant put the book down, not even to go to sleep) and so much more. I will definitely buy more books of this author. Characters well developed (no childish stuff) as well as the storyline. The flow of the story was excellent. I will read this book again.

While the author did a good job presenting the story, I found the heroine character, Alexa quite frustrating at times. Even though there was some growth and learning process in the unfoldment of the story, Alexa was just not my kind character to embrace.

Jeanette does a fantastic job bringing her characters to life in the pages of her book. I found myself becoming increasingly involved with the storyline and emotions of the main characters with every page(and was secretly cheering on Jamison the entire book-long). The elements of romance, suspense and the importance of relationship with God are all well-balanced. Scripture references were spot-on and encouraging. By the time I was at the conclusion of the book, I was so intrigued by the stories of these characters that I didn't want it to end. This book is one I will keep on my library shelf and read over and over. Job well done, Jeanette!

I really enjoyed this story, I bought this book because I had read "Commanders Desire" Which by the way is amazing. I wanted to read more books by Jennette Green, her stories are great, and I love the dialoge between her characters,it seems so real. Reluctant body Gaurd was fun suspenseful, and about real emotions and feelings. I found myself so caught up in this story I couldn't put it down! I can't wait for her next book!!!!

More About the Author

From the author: I grew up in North Pole, Alaska and later, as a teen, lived on a sailboat for five years. My family visited Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama, and various Caribbean islands. Luckily, my husband loves to travel, too, and we (and our three kids) have embarked upon a few interesting adventures!

I fell in love with writing in the second grade. My first romance novel, The Commander's Desire, was published in 2008, and recently updated in 2013. The book is now available in audio book format through Amazon, Audible and iTunes. The Commander's Desire has been given the accolades of "Top Pick" novel and "Reader's Favorite Hero for 2009." Other books I've written include Her Reluctant Bodyguard, a Christian romantic suspense novel, and Ice Baron, a futuristic/science fiction romance, packed with action and romance. Each has received a number of "Top Pick" reviews, too.

I'm interested in a number of different subjects! As a result, I like to mix things up, and that's why I write in a variety of genres. Here's the list of my latest books, according to genre:

Historical Romance:
The Pirate's Desire, Historical regency romance, PG-13, clean romance
The Commander's Desire, Historical medieval romance, PG-13, clean romance

Christian Romance:

Castaways, novelette, 15,400 words, clean, light romance

Children's (to be released soon):
Toot of Fruit, a children's humorous story, 3,800 words

Murder Mystery:
Murder by Nightmare, a murder mystery novelette, 9,300 words

Publishing Industry:
Book Formatting for Self-Publishers, a Comprehensive How-to Guide


ADDITIONAL BOOKS, IN THE WORKS:

(Working titles are subject to editorial change)

Christian Romance:
Snowstorm, Contemporary, PG, clean romance

Science Fiction/Futuristic Romance:
