This is a great read. Full of suspense and hot as hell!
Ellis and Sam are brilliant characters that you will fall in love with. I love that all the characters from the previous books are included, and as well as getting the awesome main story of the super sexy Ellis and seriously hot Sammie, we get to see Ben and Kay and Dev and Rachel too!
This is a beautiful and emotional love story with loads of really sexy bits, but at the same time there is suspense and mystery running through the story that will keep you hooked throughout this book.
Another brilliant read from L L Collins, and I can't wait to read Lacey's story.

Author L.L. Collins has done it again!! She certainly knows how to give you all the feels with her writing. Right from the beginning, reading the prologue my chest was squeezing from the pain and angst making its way through the pages. It had me intrigued and the need to read on consumed me.

I felt for SWAT Team member Ellis Warner from the start and needed to know if life was going to improve for him. I adored Ellis. His life experiences as a child made him a compassionate, caring adult. He may not see it himself but he was a strong guy. Instead of falling further off the rails he made something of his life yet he didn’t think that he was worthy of love and happiness and that could well prove his downfall.

Although Country Singer Samantha Kerrigan was now living her dream she wasn’t without her share of bad past experiences. She also had controlling parents to contend with but she was strong and feisty. It was a refreshing change for the heroine to be the one to know what she wants and does the chasing (although this was out of character for her).

“Stop fighting me,” she whispered, moving so close he could feel her breath as she spoke. “I have no idea when the next time is that I’ll see you. Look at me and tell me you won’t miss me, that you don’t want to know what this connection is between us.”

When Ellis became Sam’s security due to a crazy stalker harassing her they both connected straight away. Their feelings for each other were apparent and so was their sexual chemistry, they were HOT together!

“Ellis, if you’re watching this, I’m sorry. You saved my life, and I ruined yours. I hope someday you can forgive me…”

This story is told from both Ellis and Sam’s point of view with snippets from the stalker that gave me the chills!

Where to start, I absolutely adored this book. It gripped me right from the start and already my emotions were touched and my heart bled for Ellis and what happened to him. I love his character straight away, he didn't allow his past to dictate his future. Instead he used it and manipulated it to become a better person. However, even after all the good he does, he still doesn't allow himself to fully open up to anyone and let himself be loved. This is until he meets Samantha Kerrigan...

She's everyone's favourite country singer and despite over controlling parents has started her own life in the spotlight and all is making it big. However, when she starts being harassed by a stalker she needs some extra security to protect her. When Ellis is hired to keep her safe, the chemistry and spark is instant. Both are powerless to resist and soon temptation gets the better of them and once it takes hold, neither is prepared for the love that takes hold of them. Each are captivated and soon it is apparent that this is so much more than either if them expected.

This book is not without it's twists and turns and some of the situations faced by each has you holding your breathe and your heart racing! Your rooting for them all the way through. It is clear that fate brought them together and they are one of my favourite couples and so deserving of their happily ever after.

LL Collins, in each of her books has managed to captivate us, give us amazing characters, an adventure of a story that stays with you for long afterwards. Her books pull you in and you instantly love the characters and follow their story's. I absolutely cannot wait for her next work. If your looking for a romance story with that little bit extra, then her books are for you. Amazing books that you can get lost in and love every page.

Guarding Hearts is one of those books that induces a huge happy sigh. Just when I think the Living Again series can’t possibly get any better, Ellis and Sam’s story comes along and blows me away all over again. Not only do we get to see the couples from the previous novels basking in there happily ever afters, but we are also introduced to some truly intriguing new characters. As always, L.L. Collins writes with purpose, carefully crafting a story that will make you think, feel, and fall in love. Her writing flows easily, allowing the reader to be swept up by her words and floated into the brilliant world she has built amongst the pages. Ellis and Sam share an instant connection that is absolutely magical. While they seem to be fated, L.L. Collins is careful not to let them succumb to disingenuous instalove. They fight their feelings and keep their personal secrets, adding to the build up of chemistry that absolutely sizzles between them and gives this novel a sexy edge that is utterly addictive.

L.L. Collins did not disappoint with Sam and Ellis, putting these two through the wringer as they faced their intense feelings, dealt with occupational hazards, and fought to keep their pasts behind them. The emotional rollercoaster that ensues had me connecting with these characters and fully investing myself in their happy ending. Initially Ellis and Sam appear to be total opposites, but as their story progresses, L.L. Collins unraveled these characters to expose vulnerabilities, insecurities, and fears that were surprisingly similar. Sam is dynamic in a way that lights up everything around her, while Ellis’ strong presence casts a shadow that can’t be ignored. Together they represented a perfect balance. Their different views of the world pushed them to evolve alongside each other into the best versions of themselves. I loved getting to know this couple and thoroughly enjoyed experiencing their journey right alongside them.

Guarding Hearts is definitely an enthralling journey full of unexpected twists, hidden truths, and surprising pasts that came together to deliver something powerful. Guarding Hearts explores the challenges of overcoming the events of our youth and delivers a rather poignant message - the person we choose to become is far more important than who we were born. I swooned from the sweet romance, laughed at the witty banter, blushed my way through the steamy scenes, and even shed a few tears at some seriously heartbreaking moments. The secondary characters, both familiar and new faces, made Ellis and Sam’s world even more vibrant. I can’t wait for the next book in the series where I can once again revel in the comforting feeling this unconventional little family so easily delivers. L.L. Collins has written a story of loss, longing, and love that is undeniably sweet and absolutely captivating. Guarding Hearts is a great read!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE!!! 3 Jun. 2014
By Jessica Fay - Published on Amazon.com

I actually made it through an L.L. Collins book without bawling my eyes out! Don't get me wrong a few tears escaped!

New country super star Samantha Kerrigan embarks on her first tour when fan starts to get just a little too close, leaving flowers and notes in her dressing room when no one is around, claiming they are soul mates and will be together one day. Obviously freaked out they call on added security.

Ellis Warner didn't have the greatest childhood, growing up with a drug addicted mother and ending himself in juvenile detention at the age of 16. One of the cops took to Ellis, saw his great potential and showed him the life he could have, looking at him like a son. Ellis cleaned up his life, his record expunged and even become a cop himself. When the opportunity came around to join the security team for team her was originally hesitant.

These two instant click, drawn together like magnets. Only, there new relationship also sparks the rage and jealous of her new stalker, causing him to take greater steps in getting closer to Sam. Will Ellis be a bale to protect her? Will they be able to get over their insecurities and their horrible pasts?

L.L. Collins has done it again! Drawing out raw emotions in her reads and perfect picture of her characters. You can't help but fall in love with these two!

5.0 out of 5 stars HOT! 29 Oct. 2014
By Letty (CovertoCoverBookBlog) - Published on Amazon.com

We met Ellis in Reaching Rachel, as one of Devin’s cop friends. He has lived with a difficult past, overcoming obstacles and making the best of his situation. Sam is a country singer who is dealing with a stalker that is getting too close for comfort.

Ellis is called in to work as part of her security detail and the sparks fly instantly. The chemistry between them is HOT and will have you cheering for them to get together. Sam is not afraid of going after what she wants and fights to win her sexy bodyguard's attention.

Like the previous two books, this one is full of well-developed characters and a great storyline that will hook you and not let you go until the last word is read. You will go through an array of emotions that will keep you tied to the story and you will be right there in every situation. It is impossible not to feel connected to the characters.

Another great story.
5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Must Read 24 Feb. 2015

LL. Collins hit all the right notes with Guarding Hearts, the 3rd book in her LIving Again Series. You will need to once again sit down and buckle up for the emotional roller coaster. This book is full of romance (and why not with Ellis), suspense, anger, happiness, friendship and of course family.
We meet Ellis in Reaching Rachel and fall in love with him in Guarding Hearts. Collins gets into why Ellis has been distant with his "relationships". And why he finds it difficult to trust people and let them into his inner circle.
Sam is the up and coming newest country sensation. Ellis is hired to help her security detail while she is going through a scary time with a stalker.
This is just a brilliantly written story and once again we get to revisit the wonderful characters we met in Living Again and Reaching Rachel. I love how well Collins has developed all her characters and keeps them going from one story to the next.
Another amazing story from LL. Collins
