Review - Security by Mandy Baggot

I'm delighted today to be part of Mandy Baggot's blog tour. 

As part of of the Security launch, Mandy is having a giveaway. Anyone who posts a review on Amazon up until the end of May can enter into the Rafflecopter draw to win a £25/$40 Amazon gift certificate. You will be able to enter via this link.
Autumn Raine is a diva of the highest order.  She is a popstar who lives in a world where she barks orders and everybody jumps. Her boyfriend enjoys spending her money and she has a PA who organises her life for her. With a dad she misses dearly as he died years ago, and her mum a politician and not at all a motherly type of mum, she has learnt that emotions should always kept in check and she never allows herself to get really close to someone.

However her life changes dramatically when Nathan Regan, her new security guy who is ex-military takes a firm hand with her, says he's in charge now and completely turns her life upside down and inside out in more ways than one. Should she trust those close to her?  Just who is telling the truth?

I really do love a Mandy Baggot book. They are full of emotion, passion and laughter.  She always writes great stories which are extremely entertaining to read.

I met Mandy last year at a Love A Happy Ending event, and she's a real character. That must be why she is so good at creating the characters that she does in her books.  They are quirkey, intense and have the odd flaw or two but you grow to love them really quickly. 

You know when you pick up a Mandy Baggot book that you will get your money's worth.  Each one I've read so far has been highly readable, is easy to turn the pages, and has a storyline which leaves you desperate to find out which way the plot will turn, and she never fails to achieve a happy ending. And you will all know by now how much I love a happy ending!

I'm glad that I have discovered this author and look forward to continuing to read lots more of her brilliant work.

I agree, Kim , that this book just sounds so readable and exciting - I have it on my Kindle and I'm trying to 'save' it as I'll need a good read for my holidays. But it's very tempting to just get stuck in!!
