    3. Ivy Danforth is trying to get out from under her overprotective father’s thumb. However, he’s a former Colonel and that’s not happening. He sends Seth Rodrigo, ex-Special Forces, to watch over Ivy. Then she witnesses a murder. Awkward. Then they end up in protective custody while the cops search for the killer. Awkward and hot. Alone. Together. For four days. And what happens? Romance, as usual.-Simple, character-driven story: This is a fairly straightforward story, and the focus is 90% on [...]

    4. Rating: 3.5/5I’ve enjoyed every story I’ve read by this talented author and this bodyguard romance is no exception. The heroine is Ivy Danforth. She’s been brought up by her father after her mother’s untimely death, details of which are included in the story so I don’t want to share here - enough to say it was a tragic situation. Her father is a Colonel and very protective of Ivy. However, Ivy wants a taste of freedom, a chance to get out from under her father’s protective eye and ha [...]

    5. Finally out from under her father's overprotective thumb, Ivy Danforth is traveling around Australia experiencing life. Her last goal before returning home is having some fun sexy times. Hopefully with the hunky bouncer working at the same bar she is. Seth Rodrigo owes his life to Ivy's father. For that reason he agreed to keep an eye on her while she's away from home. All he has to do is keep his libido under control and not let her know anything about his connection to her father. Everything i [...]

    6. I received a copy of this book through NetGalley from Entangled Publishing for an honest review. This book had all of the right ingredients - upbeat and sweet heroine, responsible and alpha hero along with a great premise of suspense and one whopping lie. In the end, something didn't quite click with me. The story gets off to a great start. We jump right into the action then they're sequestered in a motel for their own protection for several days. And although we get to know the characters a lit [...]

    7. Seth is hired by the Colonel to protect his daughter. Ivy, the Colonel's daughter, has no idea that Seth, who she knows as Dean - the bouncer at the bar she works for - is actually private security watching her for her father. When Ivy and "Dean" witness a murder, the cops place them in protective custody and they have to share a hotel room. "Dean" will do everything he can to complete his job and protect Ivy, even if it means lying to her about who he really is.This book had great potential - I [...]

    8. Probably closer to 3-1/2 stars. It was a cute setup -- overprotective dad hires ex-military guy to pretend to be a bouncer for a few months to watch over his daughter while he gives her "space" to have a "normal life" before she comes home to start her more traditional career. Of course, said overprotective dad didn't count on immediate sparks, even though neither of them made a move until they were forced into protective custody together and the tension just burst. Well, almost burst. Not quite [...]

    9. his book is a very surprising case of "Which of these things is not like the others?" When compared to titles in the Men Of The Zodiac series. Confused? Please allow me to clarify things a bit.Men Of The Zodiac is a series in which a man, embodying characteristics of his particular birth sign, acts out said embodiment within a given scenario. (With the addition of panty-singeing sex and a heart melting 'happily 'of course.)The Colonel's Daughter reads more like a Special Ops novel, than anything [...]

    10. *ARC provided by Publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review *The Colonel’s Daughter by Amy Andrews is not at all what I was expecting, given the two books I’ve read previously in this series, but I loved this book a lot. It’s well-written and intriguing, with a storyline that kept me interested the whole way through. I love forced proximity, bodyguard stories so that was a big draw for me with this book and I like the way the author handled it because it didn’t feel like I’d re [...]

    11. 3.5 starsOverall The Colonel's Daughter was a entertaining read, I was drawn in from the first page and couldn't put it down.While I did enjoyed the storyline and the writing was well done for me there seemed to be something missing, I didn't feel the connection between Seth and Ivy. It was more lust brought on by being locked up in a room for so many days. While that can be exciting, satisfying and hot it didn't leave me feeling like they were unconditionally and irrevocably in love with each o [...]

    12. This was a quick read in where Ivy is living her life for the summer under her own rules. She doesn't realize the guy she wants is the one hired by her father to protect her. When they witness something and are put into protective custody things get hot. When the truth comes out trouble ensues. It is a fun story .** I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

    13. REVIEW OF SEDUCING THE COLONEL’S DAUGHTER by AMY ANDREWSAmy never disappoints and this lovely book just confirmed my faith in Amy Andrews writing. Her heroes and heroines are very relatable, very hot and very real. Amy writes the male point of view with authenticity. Dean/Seth was believable every step of the way throughout this story. Ivy made me laugh. She was so desperate in her need to get rid of the big V on her forehead, and had zeroed in on Dean as the man for the job.The storyline was [...]

    14. Ivy is tired of being under constant surveillance so she decides to take some time for herself. She is using this time to figure out who she is without her fathers prying eyes. In this time she meets Seth and she is instantly in lust, he is sweet, caring, and protective. She makes it her mission to get him into bed with her which proves to be difficult with his complicated code of honor. But after having a taste of him Ivy refuses to back down. Some lines are better left uncrossed but the real p [...]

    15. Originally posted on my blog: Tangled Up In BooksI received a copy of this book, from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. In no way did this sway either my review or my rating!I didn't even look to see what this book was about before I picked it up. I saw the " Amy Andrews" after the title and instantly made grabby hands. She has yet to disappoint me in anything I've read by her and now after finishing The Colonel's Daughter, her score with me is currently 6-0. She always makes me f [...]

    17. blue-moon/spipp?artiJ’apprécie particulièrement Amy Andrews qui a commencé sa carrière et la poursuit d’ailleurs chez Harlequin ; elle est également publié chez Entangled Publishing et voilà donc un très classique romantic suspense avec un garde du corps et sa cliente. Ce n’est pas follement original mais diablement efficace. Le tout se déroule en Australie puisque c’est la patrie de cette auteure.La situation de départ est très banale dans la romance. Ivy est une jeune femme [...]

    18. I read this novel as part of the Men of the Zodiac box set but I will be trying to review each novel individually.The premise of the series is that each man has, for one reason or another, got a tattoo from a mysterious tattoo artist of his astrological sign. No matter that most men don't know their star sign and would probably struggle to know what image represents their sign even if they did! Four stars,This novel stood out from the others, not least because it was set in Australia.Seth Rodrig [...]

    19. 4 starsThe Colonel's Daughter is my first Amy Andrews book and I was pleasantly surprised. If your a fan of Harlequin romance novels then this is perfect for you. Ivy thinks she's finally out from under her father's thumb,taking a year off after college to enjoy life, do what she wants until it's time to buckle down and find a job.Unbeknownst to her daddy still has someone keeping her safe, just at a distance and not in uniform.Ivy's father saved Seth's life so he owes him. Protecting the mans d [...]

    20. These men are worth the time to discover all about them and in this one Seth is about to come face to face with his match when they have to spend some unwanted quality time together. Having been sent unknown to Ivy by her father to keep a eye on her while she is in Australia,Seth acts as the bar's bouncer to Ivy and her friend's place of employment until time to go back home. Ex-military she can spot that about him but that doesn't keep her from watching him every chance she gets. He is also doi [...]

    21. Quick and enjoyable, The Colonel's Daughter only took an afternoon to read, but it packed quite a punch :)I really liked Seth, the alpha male bodyguard/security specialist who tries his darnedest to resist falling for the colonel's daughter. Yeah, you know how that one's going to end up, right? ;) I loved reading the scenes from his point of view especially, because he was so conflicted about what he wanted to happen and what he knew should happen. (When he imagined the Colonel pushing him out o [...]

    22. I really enjoyed this one. The story for whatever reason was engrossing from the beginning, and I quite enjoyed the interactions of the couple.Ivy is 23 and spending a year exploring Australia, finally, after being under the care of her overprotective father for her entire life. She is working at a bar at the opening of the story. Unknown to her though, her father hasn't let her out to explore unprotected. He hired Seth, an old military associate who owed him a favor, to keep watch over her for [...]

    23. This was a first read for me from Amy Andrews!! I was surprised with her writing and can say that I am a fan of her work now. This was a great read that flowed really well and kept your attention throughout the whole book. Ivy is a young lady that has an over protective father, and who can blame him in this day and age?? I know that Ivy feels like she can never do anything on her own without her father having someone checking up on her, but I sort of liked the idea that her dad cared so much abo [...]

    24. 3.5 starsI enjoyed this book but I was expecting a bit more action that what was in it. Don't get me wrong it was good and you should read it but just don't expect much action.This is the first book I've read by Amy Andrews and I will definitely check out her others. Ivy is working at a bar getting some freedom in her life from her overprotective father and hoping that she will get to lose her v card since her father scares all prospective boyfriends away. Unbeknownst to her Seth is there posing [...]

    25. I really enjoyed this bodyguard romance, with Seth (posing as Dean the bouncer at the bar Ivy works for) having the responsibility to keep an eye on Ivy at the request of her Colonel father. That this man saved Seth's life in Afghanistan means he owes him a debt he feels he can never repay - though it also makes his daughter off limits. This doesn't stop the attraction he feels for her though. But when he has to keep her safe from a killer and go into seclusion with her, how long can he keep his [...]

    26. ** ARC received in exchange for an honest review ** This is the 1st book I have read by Amy Andrews and I can't wait to download the rest in the series. I really liked this book.I didn't spend half the book thinking "FFS! just do it!" Which is good, because I think some times books drag it out so freaking long that by the time they do you're uninterested.Can I just add, Ivy has shit loads of confidence for a virgin! I still wouldn't strip naked in front of someone who I've known 3 months!The sto [...]

    27. Rating: 3.5A simmering sexual tension between Ivy and Seth that will quickly reach boiling point if they let it.Ivy has been raised as an army brat by a now retired, over protective Colonel, so when a threat is made against him, he doesn't hesitate to ensure his daughter is protected. Seth is the man sent to watch over her and protect her. The attraction between them is immediate but neither acts on it: Seth through a sense of duty; and Ivy through shyness and inexperience. They are forced toget [...]

    28. Seth is forced by a debt that he owes to Ivy's father to keep an eye on her without her knowledge. What Seth didn’t count on in taking this job was the attraction he feels for the one woman he can’t have. Hell she doesn’t even know his real name and if she knew the reason beyond them even meeting, she’d hate him. Ivy is tired of being under constant control and supervision by her over protective father that she takes the summer off with her bestie to experience a father free time. When t [...]

    29. Army brat, Ivy Danforth is breaking out from under her father's military style over protective surveillance. Spending the summer away from home for a few weeks, having fun with her bestie and hopefully hooking up with a hottie, is at the top of her to do list. But 20+ years of living in a certain way has made her cautious about giving away a precious part of herself. She is crushing heavily on Dean, a bouncer at the club where she works but she can't muster up enough courage to approach him and [...]
