One of PopSugar's 87 Romance Novels That Will Give You All the Feelings

"Center's laugh-out-loud rom-com is a perfect summer read. The characters are vivid, the plot is compelling, and she balances grief, heartache, hope, and romance in a tender, believable way." --Buzzfeed

"Center brings her signature warmth and wit to this movie-ready premise, blending a heartwarming romance with quirky side characters and even a little bit of action. Hannah is an endearing and vulnerable lead underneath her serious, tough-girl exterior. Center delivers another satisfying, romantic read with a swoonworthy hero and a delightful main character." --Kirkus

"This fun new novel by Katherine Center feels like a summertime blockbuster. On the surface, it's a light-hearted romance, but it packs a bit of an emotional punch (along with some actual punches!)." --Country Living

"Center's confection satisfies on its own terms." --Publishers Weekly

"My perfect 10 of a book. As funny and sweet as all the very best nineties rom-coms, but with Center's signature heart-tugging depth. I wish I could erase it from my mind just to read it again for the first time. A shot of pure joy." --Emily Henry, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Book Lovers

"Great rollicking fun! Prepare to laugh and swoon and grin your pants off." --Helen Hoang, New York Times bestselling author of The Heart Principle

"I sit down with a Katherine Center novel the way many do in front of a favorite holiday meal: with salivating, wide-eyed anticipation. As always, Center's writing wallops readers with wisdom, wit, and a deep understanding of her dimensional characters. And The Bodyguard is pure, unvarnished delight. It sparkles bright with flirtation, banter, and the all-encompassing thrill of falling in love over a thousand tiny moments of connection. I closed this book with the biggest smile and the deepest, satisfied sigh." --Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author of The Soulmate Equation

"An irresistible, delightful, perfect read. Clear the calendar, settle in your favorite chair and enjoy every amazing word. Then tell your boss you're going to need the next day off, because you're going to want to read it again!! --Susan Mallery, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Summer Getaway

"The Bodyguard is absolutely, unequivocally delightful!" --Jodi Picoult, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Wish You Were Here
