Can You Protect Me? 5 Bodyguard Romances You’ll Instantly Adore

by Silvana Reyes January 04, 2023

If you’re a fan of romantic movies, you’ve for sure watched The Bodyguard (1992) starring powerhouses Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner. I bet you fell in love with the bodyguard trope from that point forward! It’s such a good trope! The way one person’s whole mission and goal is to protect you so you don’t get hurt? That they’ll always be there when you need them the most? It can't be beaten!

The bodyguard trope has high-stakes situations, forbidden love, intense scenes where the bodyguard’s emotions are running wild when the main character gets hurt, etc. There are a few books in this list that also have a little bit of fake dating because they obviously don’t want the world to know they have a bodyguard, so of course, they are going to pretend their new bodyguard is their partner *swoons*

The Bodyguard by Katherine Center

Keep Me Close by RM Virtues

This book is inspired by Greek mythology, specifically Aphrodite and Hephaestus. It follows Aphrodite who after an attempt on her life gets assigned a bodyguard. In this case, her new broody bodyguard is none other than Hephaestus, the man she despises.

Truth be told, they both hate each other, so this is definitely not an ideal situation. But the proximity has created a simmering attraction between them and they start to realize that they make more sense together rather than apart.
