Liam and Aidan have left Tunis and are trying to settle into their new home, but before they can, they are once again sent out on a job.  This one may be harder than any other as it has both men rethinking their relationship.

Under the Waterfall is the fifth story in the Have Body, Will Guard series.  This newest book finds the two men trying to settle down on the French Riviera.  When they are called out to Corsica, neither man is expecting there to be any problems.  At the time of this story, the men, Liam and Aidan, have been together for two years.  In many ways I expected them to be further along in their relationship.  I can understand their continued misgivings concerning Aidan and the bodyguard business, but I have trouble understanding their issues concerning their feelings for each other.  In some ways, it is almost as if they are just coming together as a couple. 

This did not keep me from enjoying Under the Waterfall.  The passion that exists between the men is intense.  I love when Aidan takes control, showing Liam, who is a former SEAL, what it’s like to have someone else calling the shots in bed.  I also love how protective of Aidan Liam is.  Even with their continuing insecurities, Liam and Aidan really are made for each other, something that the author brings across very well. 

As with the other stories in this series, the supposedly simple guard duties the men have taken on becomes much more.  Much to Liam’s chagrin, Aidan continues to become involved in the personal lives of those they are guarding; in this case the client’s son Michael.  There are also some twists in this story that keep the reader interested.  While the culprit is easy to figure out, the reason for their crimes is not what I was expecting.  

Under the Waterfall is a fun read that any fan of this author will enjoy.  The personal and professional twists in the story will hold the reader’s attention from beginning to end.  While it is possible to read each book in this series on its own, I would recommend reading them in order.
