Publisher's Summary

As demonstrators and police spar in the streets of Tunis, bodyguards Aidan and Liam must protect Leila, a young girl whose mother has been taken into police custody. While the threats against her and her activist parents grow, hunky ex-SEAL Liam is stuck in the Tunisian countryside while teacher and novice bodyguard Aidan travels to France on his own with Leila.

Liam must deal with his emotions once separated from his partner, while Aidan struggles to protect Leila and her father from a deadly villain as Liam has taught him. Both men must examine the depths of their love for each other and satisfy themselves that more than just sexual desire keeps them together.

Great Story Not Helped by the Narration

Neil S. Plakcy’s ‘Olives for the Stranger’ is one of my favorite books in his excellent ‘Have Body, Will Guard’ series. I’m a big fan of Mr. Plakcy’s novels and gave this book a 5-star rating when I first read it years ago.

Liam McCullough and Aidan Greene are wonderfully written characters and the development of their relationship as it progresses throughout the series is close to perfect.

Unfortunately, the narration by Stan Jenson just didn’t work for me. It may be that I’d already ‘heard’ the voices of Aidan and Liam as I read the series and Jenson’s voice simply didn’t match my preconception. But for whatever reason, it was just off.

I still highly recommend ‘Olives for the Stranger’ and the entire ‘Have Body, Will Guard' series, but, if you’re like me, you’ll enjoy reading it far more than listening to this audiobook version.
