Publisher's Summary

As a former FBI agent, Flynn Coleman was made for his work with Blackbridge Security. He’s highly trained, has a skill set meant for analysis and investigation, and meant to do important things. Yet, he’s chasing a 20-year-old starlet’s daughter around New York City because the spoiled brat never learned how to behave. 

Remington Blair doesn’t need a babysitter, but her parents insist. Keeping Flynn Coleman on his toes will be the most fun she’s had in a while. Besides, just hearing him call her name with that accent is enough to keep her running.

My Thoughts on Contingency Plan

I was barely five percent into this book and I already had the feeling I knew how I'd be spending the rest of my day. And once I was done I didn't know if I wanted to celebrate the totally engrossing story I'd just read or write an angry letter to the author for leaving me hanging like she did at the end.

Don't get me wrong. Remington and Flynn's story is perfectly wrapped up here. But in standard Marie James fashion with these amazing series of hers, she hinted at what was to come. And this time it wasn't just a hint. It was practically a sledgehammer to the head leaving me reeling and desperate for the next book.

Contingency Plan is a must read though. I enjoyed every moment of this story. Even the ones when my heart was breaking for one or both the main characters.

There was humor and sadness, friendship and love. All tied up in this well written romance that I know I'll love reading again in future. Plus the added bonus of revisiting with characters I loved in the previous books. Wren and Puff Daddy continue to be my favorites.

Listening to this on audio took it too a whole new level. For starters, can we talk about Jacob Morgan with a British accent?!?! Amazing isn't a strong enough word, but it's G rated so I'll go with it. Both he and Callie Dalton did a wonderful job bringing these character to life in my ears. I had already read the book but listening to it was a whole new experience and now I want to hear all of Marie James words narrated by two such fantastic performers.

Pains me to lower

This story held no interest for me this time around. Remington was irritating and it wasn’t Callie Dalton’s fault. The character was just not likable. Jacob did a fantastic accent. Things just didn’t line up for me.

A mission he never wanted

He never wanted a mission guarding a starlet. Guarding a spoiled starlet’s daughter was an assignment he was desperately trying to escape from. Remington was so desperate for attention she would reach out in any way she could. Flynn was not ready to play her little games and was looking for an escape clause ASAP. He left the FBI on less than stellar choices and he wouldn’t make the same mistake again. Isn’t this where that phrase never say never comes from? This may be a time when he eats those very words and gets everything he hoped and dreamed. Marie James does an amazing job of pulling you in one word at a time and never letting you go. The narrators did an amazing performance of bringing the story to life.

Great narration earns an extra star from the ebook

Flynn & Remington

Like many fans, I love an accent, and Flynn's get to me. Love it. The narrator, as with the previous books in the series, is great. Love it which makes listening to the story I've already read that much more enjoyable. Great bedtime stories. Enough so that the audio earned an extra star rating.

A babysitter? That was to be his next job? Not without objection which did Flynn no good. He moved on to do what he had to. He couldn't risk objecting too hard. He was lucky to have the job at all.

She was just what he'd been told, except for the hot part. The really hot part. She was too young. And--he didn't dare get involved with a client. Then he started to see past the spoiled rich girl. There was so much more.

I enjoyed the story. Have to admit that Flynn really made me mad for a while. You'll have to see if you feel the same way and will you forgive him if you do?

Yes, Puff Daddy does make a few entrances and hasn't changed but he does have a new challenge. The guys are just as snarky as ever and always ready to offer advice. There is plenty of steam and a setup to make you want the next one. I can't wait. Loved the story.

Catch me if you can

Jacob Morgan with a British accent totally made my day. I may have put in ear buds so he was speaking directly to me. Maybe!

Flynn totally got screwed over with his latest assignment. How did the man second in command get stuck babysitting a starlets daughter? Remington is constantly pulling the ditch and run just to get attention since she apparently isn't getting it from her parents.

This book\audio book was so good. And again I have to praise the narrators for another outstanding job on an outstanding story.

I love Remi and Flynn..

I'm starting to love Audible books. Listening to my favorite books allows me to get all of my everyday life things done while also getting to hear the next books of a series so I don't miss a thing. Marie James bringing her books to Audio is such a great thing. I look forward to listening to the next book in this series and hope you will too. My review for this story follows.

"I loved loved this story. I found this book hilarious and would laugh out loud and times and mad at others. It was sweet and steamy. Overall I enjoyed reading it and once I started I couldn't put it down. I fell in love with Flynn and Remi. I look forward to the next in the series."

Plan?

You can feel all the emotions of these characters, from the initial anger of Flynn about the babysitting job to Remington’s hurt that she was being passed over again. As the narrators brought us into each scene I felt like I was right in the same room and felt each of the feelings they were having, including hot and bothered. Didn’t want to stop listening.
All the variations of the characters do a fantastic job of human voices and of course Puff.

Another Home Run

This is the 3rd book in the Blackbridge Security Series. In this book we have Flynn's story. Flynn is recruited to be the security detail for Remington Blair. Going into this job he already feels his talents will be wasted being a glorified babysitter. The first meeting of Flynn and Remington just solidifies his thoughts.

It took me a while to warm up to Remi, I don't know if it was just her acting like a brat or what. But as the book moves on and we learn more about her life everything makes sense. By the end of the book I was routing her on and loving how she wasn't going to settle for less than anything she deserves.

Another amazing book by the talented Marie James.

Also amazing work by both the narrators.

Flynn and Remington are great!!

This is the third book in the BBS series and it is fabulous. It's about Flynn, who is hired out as a bodyguard/babysitter to protect a socialites daughter. Remington has led a life of privilege and wanted for nothing except her parents love and acceptance. They both have a long road ahead of them and a misunderstanding may tear them apart. As always Puff Daddy is a hoot and brings lots of laughter.
