Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Los Angeles celebrities (all fictional) star in Wyatt’s debut, the first in her Bodyguard Series. Former child TV star Sierra Blake is a spokeswoman for Choices, a woman’s health organization, after a wild streak during her teenage years led her to the nonprofit. Someone who has a grudge against the reproductive-rights group begins targeting her. A red-dyed diaper is thrown at her; then someone breaks into her home. She hires bodyguard Sean Owens, impressed by his quiet confidence and the instant pull between them. Sean, a former minor-league baseball player, gave up his career to help his dad with his security firm, though his failure to save someone 10 years earlier haunts him. Rising tensions as the attacks accelerate, incandescent sex scenes, and a believable villain make this a compelling read. The emphasis on women’s issues is appealing, and well-developed secondary characters set up the next book in the series. Agent: Jessica Watterson, Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. (Mar.)\n


"If you love tough guys with a side of sweet, strong heroines with a hint of wild, and suspense with a spark of humor, this is definitely the book for you. Every woman should be lucky enough to have a man like Sean Owens guarding her body. Tara Wyatt has created a swoonworthy bodyguard series with primal passion, unexpected twists, and surprising laughs!"―New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti

Sometimes you read a book that just blows you away...for multiple reasons. That's exactly how it was with Necessary Risk for me. I adored this one. Everything about it. From the sexy hero, to the mysterious plot, and the heroine who holds her own, but wasn't afraid to ask for help at the same time. This is one book I won't soon forget.

This is the story of Sierra, a girl who wants nothing more than to help with a cause that's near and dear to her heart, even when it puts her life in danger. Yet when things prove to be too much for her she contacts Sean, the hottie-mc-hottie she met after a chance encounter. Flash forward a bit and Sierra hires Sean and his crew to help protect her as she pushes through with her job that brings about danger at every turn. Yet the danger isn't the only thing causing the turmoil in Sierra's life. It's the very body guard who has vowed to protect her no matter the cost. And by protecting her, he not only means her life, but her heart too. And that means absolutely no intermingling with one another on a sexual level.

But, that's not exactly easy when you've got chemistry like Sierra and Sean do.

I won't tell you what happens, but I will say this is one story you don't want to miss.

With a fantastic, well rounded group of characters and absolutely amazing side characters, Necessary Risk is one debut you won't soon forget. Sexiness that heated every page it graced, a poetic prose that also kept a suspenseful undertone at the same time, Tara's got some mad writing skills that I admire from a writing and reading standpoint. I loved this book and no matter how many books I've read in between, I can't get it out of my head. So grab this book, read it, love on Sean like I did. You won't regret it. Trust me.

What a great beginning of a new series! OMG this is by far the best book I've read this year (I've read over 50)! If I could rate it higher than 5 stars, I would! It had me captivated from the first page and I just couldn't read it fast enough!! So hot and steamy you'll need to have a fan handy to cool yourself off!!

Sierra Blake was a childhood star and as an adult has no desire to be in the limelight as an actress. She did all the sex, drugs and drinking as a teen star and is now totally over that scene. She does still remain friends with her co-stars from her hit show Family Tree. Between jobs of being on Family Tree and when she started working on the show Sunset Cover is when she went spiraling out of control at 17. And unfortunately, her dad was dying of cancer. She had a pregnancy scare and that's when she went to a nonprofit organization called Choices. She was so impressed with them that now, as an adult, she works for them. However, that's when her life is turned upside down. Someone doesn't want Choices around and has chosen Sierra to mess with. And that's when the sexy, hot, alpha male Sean enters the picture.

Sean owns a security company with his dad. His mother was killed years ago and Sean totally blames himself and feels that his dad blames him as well. To say they don't have the best relationship is an understatement. He meets Sierra when she has an incident and he gives her his card. He never thought she'd show up at his office and want to hire him. It's going to take every ounce of strength he has not to go after her! He's so sexually attracted to her, but knows it would not be in either of their interested for him to act on those feelings!

There isn't enough words to describe how much I FLOVED this book!! The characters were amazing!

I LOVED THIS BOOK. Hot hero, relatable heroine, and a fast-paced story that was compulsively readable. Wyatt's writing really drew me in, making the world and characters come alive. Did I mention the hero was hot? HOTTT. What's more, he and the heroine were hot together. I don't read a lot of romantic suspense, but if this book is any indication, I've been missing out. The tension (sexual and romantic), along with the looming threat to the heroine's life, all came together to make a sizzling debut. Next, please!

When I first heard about this book, I had a bit of a SQUEE moment. The blurb reminded me of The Bodyguard. I fell in love with overly protective men the first second I saw Kevin Costner on the screen in that movie. Talk about hot as hell!! I just KNEW that Necessary Risk would be amazing and I wasn't disappointed in the least.

The story of Sean and Sierra that Tara Wyatt created was nothing short of perfect. I loved how Sierra was so strong in the face of such terrifying events happening around her. A strong female heroine is an amazing thing to read, especially when she's also vulnerable and so much like a real person that she's easy to relate to. I instantly wished I was more like Sierra and that I had a best friend just like her. And then there's Sean. Dear, sweet, protective, powerful and sexy Sean. You can't help but fall in love with a man that makes you feel safe and protected. Sean was incredibly protective of Sienna yet he wasn't suffocating and instead of coming off as creepy (as it sometimes does in these romantic suspense novels), it was endearing and sigh-worthy. It was very easy to get caught up in the chemistry that was furiously swirling around these two and it made it difficult to put the book down. I guess that's why I read it in less than a day!

I enjoyed the plot line, there were quite a few things going on but the author wrote it in such a way that it wasn't confusing in the least and she kept the suspense and tension spiked up to a level where you are permanently sitting on the edge of your seat, just waiting for things to happen. Most of the time, I can figure out who the bad guy is while I'm reading but Tara Wyatt got me!
