Not what the hell I thought I'd be doing with my life.

Especially not for a spoiled Hollywood actress on location in Miami Beach. But triple pay and carrying a gun had its advantages. I'd shove away paparazzi and screaming fans for a lot less. The Marines trained me to be Force Recon—intimidation and crowd control was child's play compared to four tours. This assignment should've been easy money.

But the doe-eyed starlet with the perfect ass dragged me down her rabbit hole. Living for the spotlight, she leaked the perfect scandal. I warned her making headlines wasn't in my job description, but she kept smiling for the cameras.

Now she was going to find out just how scandalous a bodyguard could be.

*SCANDALOUS is the first standalone book in the Alpha Bodyguard Series.

Make this a movie5 star

I will never understand why the junk movies that keep coming out of Hollywood continue to be released when a great movie with a screenplay based on an excellent book like this could be made. This book pulled at my heart strings and was full of adventure. Sexy Alpha male vs a troubled world his kid lives in will excite you and leave you breathless! 55


Tank & Audrina are A Perfect Fit - A MUST READ!!!5 star

I absolutely adore Sybil Bartel’s work!!! Her books are smart, steamy and intriguing!! Did I mention they are hysterically funny too? She is one of my favorites especially when it comes to her smooth, seamless flow and her spectacular world building skills. There hasn’t been a book that she has written that I haven’t loved. Scandalous is no exception. I was hooked from the very first page and I didn’t put it down until I was finished that evening. From the first sentence that came out of Tank’s mouth, I knew he was going to be a fantastic character. I’m thankful to the author for giving us such a strong female lead in Audrina. She has an adorable quirk that was unexpected and charming. He has made some strange lifestyle choices that are also unexpected but heartbreaking. On the surface, the two couldn’t be more different but after you peel back the layers, you realize that they fit together perfectly. This is an amazing story that was beautifully written. While this book and most of Sybil Bartel’s can be read as a stand-alone, all of the books intersect in one way or another with this incredible world she has created in her previous books. This usually includes appearances from some of our most beloved characters. Because of this, every time I open a new Sybil Bartel book, it feels like coming home again and I mean that in the best way possible! Tank and Audrina are already characters that I look forward to coming home to visit again in future books. I highly recommend this book as well as all books by this author!!!! 55


Dominating the Scandal5 star

Tank, a dominate alpha, meets his match in a younger Hollywood actress whose Scandalous behavior went viral. In trying to correct the issue, she ends up further scandalizing the already Scandalous scandal. 😂😂 Mix the craziness of a Hollywood scandal with steamy scenes and a sad past along with a long and frustrating road trip and you get this fantastic book! There's nothing that I like reading more than current or ex-military Alphas. Sybil has such a great writing style that she has become an automatic one-click author for me. I have not yet read a book by her that hasn't been five stars. I can't wait to read the next books on the series! 55

Recommended4 star

For the first part of this book I was thinking this might be a 3 star read for me, but things changed. I really did enjoy this book as I do everything by Sybil Bartel. Tank was definitely very alpha and Audrina had moments of naivety, but others of such strength. She new what she wanted and when push came to shove regarding her career she did what she needed to do. Tank thought he knew what he wanted in life, but Audrina snuck in and started to change things. I would have liked a little more of Tank’s background though. Overall a very good read. It was also nice to hear from André, and see a little of Talon. I love cameos from other books/series. 45


She has done it again! LOVE LOVE LOVE5 star

Sybil Bartel is AMAZING at writing hot and sexy alpha male books! I became obsessed with her about 4 months ago and have read all of her books(multiple times)!! I literally cannot get enough! Tank is a sexy ex marine turned body guard working for his friend Andre Luna’s(he also has a book) security firm. Who gets assigned as body guard to A list actress Audrina. Their dynamic is amazing. He thinks what he says goes and she challenges everything he says and does! She is mysterious and sends him through some serious hoops before they come back together in the end. The hard alpha gets turned into mush in this amazing book! 55

Like lighting a match!4 star

Audrina is a 24 year old A-list actress embroiled in the scandal of her life. Tank is a former marine, turned body guard working for Luna and Associates and Audrina is his newest client. Holy cow. This couple was like watching a lit match get thrown into a pile of explosives. I really didn't know what to think of these two at first. You're not going to get sweet and romantic with this couple but you sure are going to see a lot of heat. I did not like Audrina when we first get introduced to her. I can't tell you how relieved I was that there was more to her story. I love how an author can push me past first impressions and show me why a character does the things they do, or are forced to do. You soon learn that both Audrina and Tank have more layers than meets the eyes. You are going to need to get ready for Tank. Man can this author write alphas. Tank is a fictional character and he intimidated the heck out of me. I'm pretty sure he could command me to do anything. I can't say that I blame the heroine for her reactions to him. This is a couple that was an explosive mess that will take you on a wild ride! 45
