The first 30 percent of Hijacked fit the bill, but sadly the story took a nosedive from cute to silly; from humorous to trying too hard. He doesn't need a babysitter. Riggs isn't thrilled about the assignment either, but he fucked up big time, carelessly revealing classified information to a random hookup, and this is his punishment.
This is a ridiculous premise because no way do I believe that a former soldier would be this indiscreet and stupid. Initially, the men are mild enemies. Riggs calls Carter "Duchess", while Carter pretends Riggs is his manservant this was so childish, I couldn't stop cringing. All's well until Carter makes a bad choice, which leads to the MCs being, you guessed it, hijacked. This is when the story goes off the rails. The entire setup with the hypochondriac drug lord, the jungle luxury compound, the surprise guest There is a subplot which ties into Riggs and the security firm where he works involving a video game called Horn of Glory invented by a Licking Thicket resident who in revenge steals a backdoor code to the game.
I'm not a gamer, but Horn of Glory sounds kind of fun. Maybe the authors should sell their idea because I really think it would be a big seller. But I digress. The remaining 70 percent of the story is all bad puns and crazy drama. What should have been funny fell flat at least to me. At one point, Riggs, whose full name is William Riggs, refers to his brother Will.
So there are two boys named Will in the Riggs family? Talk about an editing fail. Did the authors forget Riggs' first name? The ending is fairly lukewarm too. There is the predictable miscommunication, followed by a rushed HFN. But the very worst part is the epilogue because Lucy Lennox did it again and wrote the epilogue from the POV of a secondary character, introducing the next book in the series.
Y'all, I've had it with that bullshit. If you're writing in the romance genre, follow romance genre conventions! Suffice it to say, this book was a big, fat disappointment. View all 26 comments. Aug 26, Carol [Goodreads Addict] rated it it was amazing Shelves: m-m. So now he gets his own book. When Dr. But he does love it. He loves being near his friend Tucker. He can admit to himself that watching Tucker and Dunn being so in love makes him feel like maybe he is missing out on something.
Even though he had pretty much given up on finding his own one and only. Carter is getting ready to leave for a month with Doctors Across Continents to provide medical care to a small village in Venezuela. His grandfather is insisting that a bodyguard accompany him. A very sexy bodyguard. But also a bodyguard that seems to despise him on sight. William Riggs is an ex-marine and now works along with his military brothers at Champion Security.
Riggs made a huge mistake costing the company the account of HOG Corporation, the owner of the ultra popular Horn of Glory video game that has swept the country. As part of his punishment, his boss is sending him as a bodyguard to a Dr. He has to keep his distance from the sexy Dr.
What better way to do that than to make him dislike him. But then it happens, Carter and Riggs are kidnapped by a hypochondriac drug lord. In order to keep their wits about them, they have to count on each other, trust each other, which brings them closer yet. I loved this book. I enjoyed the Licking Thicket series so much and loved the part Carter played in getting Dunn and Tucker together.
Riggs was a combination of a bit of a screw up and a tough guy. Prepare to smile, a lot! To sigh, maybe giggle, and even pump your fist into the air when these two work together. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. For more about this book and so many others, come and visit me at Carol's Crazy Bookish World. View all 7 comments.
Sep 03, Rosie A. Work's bitch added it. Not even my love for my home country could save this book. I don't know what the fuck it is. And yeah, it has flaws in the facts. We don't have an embassy. Where the fuck is Gelada? I'm gona ask around, maybe it does exist. I still think the authors tried to write Sierra Nevada and got confused.
I'm sur Not even my love for my home country could save this book. I'm sure there are more but I stopped. So yeah, nope. Is it even now ripening into a youthful virile man like myself who will one day be the heir to all the Santiago holdings? A crime lord I believe, a crime lord that speaks like that?
I feel insulted, they would be dead if they spoke like that, DEAD!! And without cursing? That's like the first thing your learn in english. Yeah better not read this. View all 40 comments. Sep 25, Rebecca rated it it was ok Shelves: mystery-suspense.
I break my no-review rule because writing out this essay in the comments would seem a little ridiculous, even for me. Not as much as this story though which achieves new and astonishing heights in the genre of OTT comedy. Apologies in advance to anyone reading this overly detailed review.

A lot of my friends here DNFd this one and I go into the details of the book to make them suffer too enlighten them about just how amazing this story kept getting, in hopes that the million karmic points I earn from this noble and selfless act will lead to one of my book boyfriends materialising on my doorstep, with a dozen of my favourite paperbacks in hand, ready to sweep me off my colourfully socked feet. This intricately plotted story revolves around our MCs, a Bezos level rich cardiologist by the name of Carter and Riggs, a bodyguard in whose military abilities I have more doubts than holes in swiss cheese, who are kidnapped by a drug cartel.
There is also a prominent side plot revolving around the kidnapping of Bo Nutter , the inventor of the world famous game Horn of Glory basically a Farmville on crack, tripping on acid and his Magic Seed! Sorry to disappoint but said magic seed refers only to a secret access code that could apparently be used by the cartels to conduct drug transactions within the game undetected.
At least that's what I understood from it. For more on this, please read the book because the last game I played was Mario in circa , so a gamer I am not. The villain of the story is the baddest, most evil drug lord of all time, the guy who puts Escobar and El Chapo to shame - Gustavo Santiago!
My darling Evalin. My sweet Lucrecia! They are faithful to me and only me, for no one can satisfy them like I can! But at least they can cling to their memories to comfort them. As you will no doubt verify from the blood samples you will take.
Whatta plot twist amirite? I was truly surprised, nay shocked, to know that the monologuing hypochondriac, who constantly referred to Gustavo by name, leading our reputedly genius MCs to think he was simply referring to himself in the third person, wasn't the head of a big time cartel after all!! Turns out Gustavo was sick in Houston so he asks his evil mastermind of a brother to pretend to be him so as to mislead the rival cartels.
Upon learning which my reaction was, hide spoiler ] Why after all the aforementioned excellence in plot development did I not give this one star? The way Riggs called Carter "Duchess" never failed to melt my heart because I am a sucker for cutesy nicknames like that. The initial, extremely short lived hostility between them, because lust love conquers all, was entertaining, and the only intentionally funny part which made me laugh. Will I be reading the second book in this series which seems to continue the HoG plot with Bo Nutter and his magic seed?
Yes I will. Possibly because I have lost my mind but also because the MCs for the next book, the cynical boss of the security company and a smooth talking twink, have me intrigued.

This new series is a spin-off of the Licking Thicket series this book follows a side character Carter from book 3 , which if you haven't read follows people from a small town 'Licking Thicket' and is jam packed with wacky out-there characters, sexually implicit traditions and holidays that are all named after sexual innuendos.
I read the whole Licket Thicket series, albeit sometimes the sexual jokes were a bit cringey and too much, I still had a lot of fun reading the books, it's can be a nice change of pace to read fluffy comedy so I've been anticipating this book for a while now. Unfortunately, I was left very very disappointed It almost felt like a race to see how many different characters, sexual jokes, weird comments and OTT things that could happen in less than pages?!
Then we finally get a reprieve from Licket Thicket gang as Carter, a doctor, leaves for a mission trip to Venezuela with Riggs as his bodyguard. The whole emphasis on how dangerous Venezuela is was a bit annoying, like yes of course there is issue in Latin America but the emphasis from an American writer just feels off? Idk maybe it's just me. I want to state for the record that I tried to keep going, I really tried.. The story took a turn for the worst, it became ridiculous and nonsensical.
Not to mention the caricature of the Latinx characters as one dimensional cartel gang members was borderline insulting and offensive?! I might be wrong but from what I remember the Licket Thicket series has minimal diversity so for the only diverse characters in this book being crime lords and criminals is just a NO from me.
Maybe it gets better but I truly don't have the patience to find out. View all 24 comments. Aug 23, Cadiva rated it it was amazing. Chaos, utterly brilliant chaos. The first of the Licking Thicket Horn of Glory spin-offs is an absolute riot. A firm sense of disbelief is needed but you know what, it really doesn't matter because it's just fun.
From the moment Dr Carter Rogers meets his reluctant bodyguard William Riggs you just know there's going to be fireworks. It's funny, sweet, steamy, a little bit dramatic the plot not the relationship , has all the hiccups you'd expect on the road to a happy ending, and I just absolutely Chaos, utterly brilliant chaos.
It's funny, sweet, steamy, a little bit dramatic the plot not the relationship , has all the hiccups you'd expect on the road to a happy ending, and I just absolutely loved every bit of it. As a huge gamer, the Horn of Glory which Lucy and May have created for this series is an absolute triumph, I could so see it as a real thing!

So from the opening chapter you know where this one is going, but what a fabulously fun read it was.
I was literally chuckling out loud to myself at times, and I totally loved Carter and Riggs and their dynamic. Yeah, waking up with W "I needed to bodyguard the shit out of that doctor dude. Yeah, waking up with William "Badass" Riggs was nothing like that. We have the suave and sophisticated Dr Carter Rogers heading off to do some doctoring in the middle of the South American jungle, with his annoying bodyguard paid for by Carter's grandpa in tow.
Sep 05, Gustaf rated it liked it. I didn't dislike it with passion as I did the last Licking Thicket book though. So there's that. Actually, I even really liked the beginning of this story. Then the hijacking happened and things fell into the OTT gutter and they fell hard. I don't know why I keep reading these authors common work but here I am and I know I'm going to get the next one as well. Because apparently that what I do.
Sep 07, Debra rated it it was ok Shelves: lgbtq , bodyguards , m-m , kindle-unlimited , doctors-and-medical-professions , part-of-series-or-serial. Wow - and not in a good way. I'm not sure what happened here. There was zero relationship development. They meet, the job starts and then there's a two-week time jump and they are kidnapped. There is sex here and there but I couldn't tell you why they fell in love. I never thought I'd say it, but I almost wish this book had taken place in Licking Thicket just so we could have actually focussed on the romance.
There wasn't even an epilogue for Carter and Riggs as it was the start of the next stor Wow - and not in a good way. There wasn't even an epilogue for Carter and Riggs as it was the start of the next story. The kidnapping plot was ridiculous and the way it ended made no sense. I don't think I laughed once and I definitely skimmed pages.
The brightest spot for me in this book was Carter's cousin Kevin whose book I would love to read at some point, but I don't think I'll have it in me to continue with this series otherwise. Oct 15, UnderCoverBookAddict rated it it was ok. You know when you go to the gym and you are looking at the clock to see how long you have left.
It was simply a wtf moment after the other. I liked Kevin though. And I liked the grandfather. Even now I have to strain to remember the name of the MC. Riggs, was not a character I enjoyed and as a bodyguard he was the worst.
