Too Good at Goodbyes by RC Boldt is the first book I’ve read by this author and will certainly not be the last! This book was very well written taking the reader into the pages of Simone and Kane’s journey of recovering from heartbreak of past relationships and to finding love again.
This book is follows Simone King, the Ice Princess of Pop and her temporary bodyguard Kane Windham. Living in the limelight isn’t easy and hasn’t painted Simone as the warmest of people but deep down behind the gossip and rumors is someone who has learned to ignore the media and the fabricated stories they tell.
Kane is recovering from a bad breakup. When he’s given the position of Head of Personal Security for Simone King his initial thoughts of the Ice Princess of Pop aren’t high as he’s seen what the media has said about her but what he’s not expecting is to find someone else completely. Someone who isn’t like what the media has made her seem.
The writing in this story is so good, I cannot say that enough. RC Boldt has created a special story and has really created a book that’s more than just pop princesses and their bodyguards. This story has lots of heart and emotion which bring the characters to life. This book is a slow burn!!! Don’t go in expecting Rockstar sex right off the bat. It’s a necessary slow burn that leads to the development of Simone and Kane’s relationship.

anything for a laugh, she’s your girl.
