Romance author Brooke May spends her days writing whatever her overactive imagination has brewed up and her evenings reading while she works alongside her mom. Telling stories is second natural to her, from a young age she has told anyone who would listen what she had thought up. Now, a mom of two, she splits her time writing, playing with her kids, and of course, hiking, hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling in her beloved Bighorn Mountains.

While on maternity leave with her youngest, Brooke was putting laundry away when she looked at a poem she had written in high school that was framed in her son’s bedroom. That poem triggered the idea of My Cowboy and soon she was sitting in front of her computer with her infant next to her writing her first love story that wasn’t a fanfiction.

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Michelle King

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1)Wayward by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Billionaire Bodyguards series is a spin off from the Torzial Affair books, only told from the point of view of the Bodyguards that take care of the Billionaires. In this first book, we learn Jay’s story. He is the head of security and set to own his own division of the company. He met Sasha in the Torzial books and was infatuated at first sight! He hasn’t been able to forget her or get her out of his mind. Sasha is a ballerina and at least in my opinion, a bit of a weak and needy individual. She has extremely low self-esteem and doesn’t believe that anyone could possibly want her for more than a night. Even though I didn’t care for her character, I did enjoy the book immensely! There is action and adventure, travels around the world, and sexual tension that cannot be ignored! We learn so much more about not only Jay and Sasha, but others from the Torzial Affair books. It was extremely interesting to see the events we read about in the last series from a different perspective. Great start to a new series!

Sasha Koslov is a Russian Ballerina, on an extended visa in the United States. She is a vision to uphold, strong, and regal to those who watch her perform and follow her fame, but they don’t know her secrets or the heartache she endures.

Jay is the head of an elite security team, paid to protect two of the wealthiest men in the world. He has never once felt the need to protect someone outside of the job, but there is something about Sasha that calls to him on a primal level. He has wanted her since the very first time he saw her, mesmerized by her beauty, that graceful body, and those penetrating sky-blue eyes.

When he discovers her past, the mafia connections and the implications it has to the billionaires he protects, will it be too much to overcome or with methodical planning can he tame and capture the heart of his wayward angel?

Via Mari was raised in both the United States and United Kingdom and travels extensively. As a child she spent uncountable hours traveling and always enjoyed reading to pass the time and this pattern has continued in her adult life.

In fact, you can still find her curled up in an overstuffed chair, when the wood fire is crackling and popping, reading a page-turning novel until the early hours of the morning, especially during the harsh winters of the Midwestern United States or engrossed in a book as she travels from place to place researching for her own novels, or attending conferences.

Via’s inspiration to publish stemmed from research as she began writing love scenes for her own novels. It became apparent there seemed to be a cultural divide between what people believed was normal or vanilla sexual behavior and that which people considered BDSM and she felt compelled enough to write about the differences, similarities, and extreme feelings and levels of trust individuals in dominant and submissive relationships must have, and the desires that are at the heart of these relationships.

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) By Via Mari
4 out of 5 stars

What a way to start a series. Via Mari has always provided engaging, well-developed books and characters and this book is no different.

Jay and Sasha make for one dynamic paring. Sasha is a Russian Ballerina who seems to find herself in the middle of a mafia war where she is pawn. Jay finds himself drawn to Sasha and he cannot seem to put his finger on it, but regardless, he feels that needs to protect her. After he finds out who she really is and why everyone is after her, he doubles his efforts to keep her safe.

This book is both fast-paced and slow burning. I loved every sentence and I cannot wait until book 2 emerges. Highly recommended.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wayward is the opening book of Via Mari’s new series called Billionaire Bodyguards. I have read most of her writing and I was delighted to see that she added another exiting and sexy series into the universe she had created with Prestian Series and The Torzial Affair series! You can read this book as a standalone and as an opening to a new standalone series but I recommend also to read the other two series as you will enjoy learning more about the connections and relationships and …
Our leading pair is Jay and Sasha – Jay is the head of the elite bodyguard/security team that protects two of the wealthiest men in the world and we met him first in the Prestian series, Sasha is this regal Russian ballerina with unexpected mafia connections that might put everyone in danger … we met her earlier in the Torzial Affair!
The writer is sending Jay and Sasha on a journey that leaves us at the edge of our seat, keeping our fingers (and toes) crossed and hoping that Sasha realizes in time who she has in Jay as we all want her to find happiness … and Jay, what an alpha male … can he see beyond the surface and is he strong enough to battle Sasha’s demons … we have plenty of passion and tension and suspense and I cannot wait what the writer has in store next!

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1)Wayward by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wayward by Via Mari is an excellent start to the series Billionaire Bodyguards. It is a story of romance with a little mafia/bodyguard mixed in the story. I have read other books by Via Mari and I have enjoyed those stories, so I thought I would pick this one up. I am glad I did. Her writing style is very descriptive and the characters will become part of you as you read through the story. This story is about Sasha, a Russian Ballerina who is in the US on an extended visa. She is well known for her dancing abilities, but she has secrets she does not want the public to know. Then there is Jay, who just happens to security detail for two wealthy men in the US. Jay is drawn to Sasha and does not know why exactly, as he has never felt this way before. What if anything will come of Jay and Sasha? Will Jay be able to protect his clients and will Sasha be able to let Jay into her secrets? You have just read this book for yourself to see what happens to Sasha and Jay.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wayward was a great 5 star read and book one in the Billionaire Bodyguards series.
I was pulled right from the beginning and didn’t want to put it down. Jay is the head of the security team and Sasha is a ballerina from Russia.

Jay is called in to help Sasha and he’s not happy with what he finds at the club. Ever since Jay saw Sasha he’s always had a thing for her, so his protectiveness kicks in full force. When he finds out that she has ties to the Mafia and is in danger, he is determined to keep her safe.

Will Jay be able to keep her safe?

There are so many twists and turns. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was coming next and my emotions were all over the place. All of the secondary characters were great. Via Mari’s writing pulls you right in, you feel like your right there with the characters, the detail is great. I highly recommend reading this series, you will love it. I look forward to reading more from Via Mari and this series.

4 out of 5 stars

Wayward is not my first experience with Via Mari’s writing, it’s the first of the third series I’ve read. While it isn’t necessary to read all of the books in each series, there are characters that show up throughout each and it’s always fun to see how lives are intertwined.
Via Mari has a talent for crafting hot and steamy chemistry between characters with strong storylines. I used to have a preconceived notion that if a book was sexy it couldn’t have substance too, Via Mari shatters that misconception with each book I read.
I have to say I loved Wayward and it may have been my favorite Via Mari book thus far. I look forward to seeing what more is to come.

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1)
by Via Mari

Another awesome story from Via Mari. This author does an exceptional job pulling me into her wonderfully detailed, action packed stories. This book is no exception, there is plenty of steamy, dangerous, and suspenseful moments in this read. I was happy to see that some of the characters from the Prestian series are in this series, it’s like visiting old friends. You don’t need to have read her previous series to follow this book but I do recommend reading them to enhance your experience and also because they are great books. This book is Jay and Sasha’s story and I found myself unable to put this book down as soon as I started reading it. This read is full of emotion throughout and I became completely invested in what happens with Jay and Sasha. This is a must read if you want to find out where the story goes for these two. I highly recommend this book.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wayward is the first book in the Billionaire Bodyguards series. You can read this story without having to read the other series associated with it, but if you want to know more about the characters you should read the Prestian series and Torzial Affair series to get more background on them.

When I first ran across the Sasha character (in a previous series), I didn’t like her very much. She was creating a lot of drama. In Wayward, you get a better understanding of why she is the way she is. I changed the way I felt about her in this book.

As you read this story you are likely to feel a wide range of emotions. The story keeps up a good pace and has characters you can connect to. Suspense, steamy scenes, danger…overall a great read.
