Out of Control (Babysitting A Billionaire Book 2) Kindle Edition
Out of Control (A Babysitting a Billionaire Novel) by Nina Croft
She's a challenge he can't resist.
Hollywood heartthrob Zachary Hunter loves women—as long as they don't want more than a little fun in the bedroom. When his most recent movie stirs up the wrong kind of attention, the kind that includes an attempt on his life, he hires a friend's company to locate the threat. The pint-sized redhead assigned to protect him isn't what he expects—or wants. Worse, he can't take his eyes off of her.
After ten years in the army, Danielle Sinclair knows how to handle men. With a new security gig to pass the time until she's cleared to return to the military, she's figures her sexy new client will be easy to manage. And then he opens his gorgeous mouth, and she can't decide whether to kiss him or kill him. His sex appeal may tempt her into his bed, but his sexist attitude is unbearable, and she's going to make him eat every single word…

Well that's what Zach like after being smothered growing up all he wants is fun and no commitment and all the girls know this, at least he is very honest and upfront about it which is probably the reason that so many have remained friends, but then he meets someone who turns all his ideas upside down and he is left gasping like a fish out of water not knowing what to do or how to act one thing he'd better move carefully because she carries a gun.
Dani an injured Sergeant who is pulling guard duty because of an injury and to help out a friend, after being in the army you tend to get used to having men all around but there's something about Zach that moves her and causes feelings that she has never felt before.
Zach and Dani are a perfect match and it was great to see them becoming friends as well as lovers there was a real a quality between them as they were both very strong characters but each with their own weaknesses but together they became even more. I must admit it was a while before I realised this was the second in the series but this didn't interfere with my enjoyment at all though I will go back and read the first simply because I think I'll enjoy it.
I received a free copy for an honest review.
Zachary Hunter is a writer who finds himself threatened over one of his books - seems that there were some folks that are offended by his take on organized crime and are looking to make him an example. A dead one. So Zach lets his friend Jake set him up with a few bodyguards. Danielle “Dani” Sinclair, is a petite little dynamo whose first impression of Zach isn’t the greatest - since he’s floating in a pool, naked with a blond wrapped around him. Zach’s what we like to call a man-hoe. He loves women—as long as they don’t want more than a little fun in the bedroom. So when he sees Dani, she isn’t what he expects or wants. But he cannot stay away from her. Dani was hurt in an explosion during her time in the military and is rehabbing, hoping to pass her physical and re-enter the Army, so she’s taken on this security detail to pass the time until then. Zach’s not what she expected - but is he everything she needs?
I’ve never read anything by Ms. Croft before, and when I saw it on amazon, I figured it was an inexpensive read and took a chance. I really liked the idea of a female bodyguard, especially someone who worked with dogs. To think of someone petite like Dani (who’s 5’1”) protecting Zach was a play on the usual standard of the muscled male hero protector. There were some decent dialogue between them, and I think there was chemistry between them. Zach is funny and sweet and his attraction and eventual love for Dani was appealing. While scared of commitment, he eventually realizes how much he wants Dani and doesn’t shy away from it.
The Not So Good
The book suffers from a lack of detail. I also didn’t know that this wasn’t the first book in the series, so if there was any character development for Dani and the other bodyguards there, it definitely affected my enjoyment here.
The premise is sketched out but never filled in. Zach is developed fairly well, but Dani felt too much like a cipher. For example, Dani works with the dogs, but other than running with or petting them, there’s no information regarding what would go into training the dogs or why it’s her specialty. I didn’t even realize that she was from England and served there until very late in the book. She’s a virgin, but she’s essentially mute during their sexual encounters and there was a disconnect between them as a result. It felt more like <i>Zach</i> was attracted and <i>Zach</i> was interested, Dani just <i>let</i> him do stuff. There was something made out of one of the other bodyguards, Simon, having a crush on Dani. You never see any evidence of it, except for a passing description of a frown here or there.
The Bottom Line
It’s an interesting idea that didn’t quite click for me. I may give this another shot, if I get a chance to read the first book in the series.
I adored Zach. He was somewhat a playboy before meeting Dani, but everything changed. He was drawn to her and kept pursuing her, while she kept pushing him away. I was so glad when she finally gave in and stopped fighting their attraction. That's always so annoying. These insecure women who constantly over think relationships in some of these books gets old. I skimmed a good portion of Dani's chapters when she was debating what to do. Really, she's been trained to protect and carries a gun, yet she constantly second guessed herself. But Zach was perfect enough and such a good character that he helps you to ignore Dani and work on them getting their happy ending when you get to read his POV chapters.
Overall good book that I enjoyed.
Zach makes an interesting leading man. As a wealthy author with a playboy image, he has less of an alpha feel than the two other men in this series. I thought his character was well developed with all flaws on display. The fact that he was more than a little insecure about being able to make the kind of commitment necessary before trying to talk Dani out of re-enlisting was appealing. I really liked his thoughtfulness toward Dani (the present).
Wasn't in love with the bad guy resolution which was hasty, but really enjoyed the H and h.

Zachary seemed to be the opposite as a playboy writer living the good life when Dani is assigned to work on his case. They were both strong characters & I found myself really routing for their relationship to work.
I loved the dogs & that her training skills were in the storyline.
A definite winner as is the whole series
