A Forced Proximity/Bodyguard Romance

My job is simple…keep my hands to myself and guard her with my life. Now we’re locked up in a confined space with one bed and tension so hot the rules are blurring.


I promised Hazel Martinez’s brother, I would keep her safe and I meant it. I don’t care who she’s married to and what kind of a war it’s going to start with our enemies.

Despite what Hazel’s been through, she’s a fighter, fierce and untamed and ready to run at any second. Suddenly, she becomes my obsession and it’s not just about protection anymore. She’s my shot at redemption, a way out of this dark mess I’ve always known, a glimpse at some kind of life I never thought I deserved—some happiness in the chaos.

Except letting my guard down could cost me more than just my heart…


Two years ago my father traded me to Liam King a notorious gang leader to pay off his debts. The living hell left me fighting for my life. After finally escaping I’m left with one goal, kill my husband for everything he put me through.

There is only one problem. I’m locked up away from the rest of the world with my personal bodyguard Jett Rivera, an MMA fighting mafia prince. Desperate for freedom, I’m like a caged animal gone from one hell to another. Only this time my captor is also my secret fixation I can’t stop dreaming about. With every stolen moment, every forbidden touch, our lives entwine until I can’t resist his pull and I start to want so much more.

Heartbreak Hideaway can be read a standalone or as the second book in the Rivera Brothers series.


Hazel and Jett’s story is full of tension and chemistry and its has a holy smokes sizzle factor 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥. Hazel and strong and a fighter – “I will not let Liam beat me. I am stronger than this. I will defeat him if it’s the last thing I do, I tell myself, letting the words roll over me and EMPOWER ME again.”
You will eagerly turn the pages of this book that has plenty of suspense and some secrets but you will totally love the twist at the end!

Kirstie , Goodreads Review
 Jett and Hazel’s story is one that is intense and will have you on the edge of your seat anticipating what will happen next while wanting to shake both senselessly. Jett is hired to protect Hazel, keep her safe, and keep your feelings to yourself. While Hazel is feisty, she is also strong and wants her revenge not to sit behind the scenes waiting for it all to be over, so the banter, the back and forth between these two is entertaining and frustrating. The suspense, tension, and twists keep you glued to each page while needing to know how it will all play out. I absolutely fell hard for Jett just because he is the perfect book boyfriend and those hot steamy moments with him are everything you want and more. Another great emotional and suspenseful story.
Amazon Review

Yet another amazing book by A K Steel. In this book Jett Rivera, a tall tattooed MMA fighter 🤤, becomes Hazel’s bodyguard to protect her from her evil ex Liam. This is a slow burn and I loved the way the tension builds between Jett & Hazel and once you hit the spice it’s worth the wait! 🥵 This has everything you can expect from this author, a great plot, suspense, twists you won’t see coming and serious spice. I loved the appearance of characters from the Harper Sisters series, and if you haven’t read them, I highly recommend you do because they are also brilliant. Once I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down, it had me gripped from start to finish and I loved seeing their love story unfold. The epilogue for the next book, Kobe and Arabella’s story, was so good. I can’t wait to read it, but sadly I’m going to have to! Lol!
