Aidan and Liam meet their newest client and Aidan couldn’t be more surprised.  Freddy Venus is a former porn star and has played in many of Aidan’s fantasies, but the years haven’t been good to him and someone is now out to get him.

Finding Freddy Venus is the seventh book in the Have Body, Will Guard series.  This newest book finds Aidan and Liam taking on a new client while contemplating their six years together.  The author pulls you right back into Aidan’s and Liam’s world from the first page and will hold your attention until the very last sentence.  I like that the author has these two questioning some of the aspects of their relationship.  For me, it makes the series more realistic as everything is not always rosy.  The fact is that a lot of their issues come from a lack of communication, which leads to unnecessary worry, which also plays true to life.

As for the mystery aspect of Finding Freddy Venus, this starts out like readers would expect.  Freddy has a stalker.  Only Newt isn’t what everyone thinks, especially Freddy, who can’t seem to get the older man out of his mind.  These two secondary characters are so opposite from each other that it is hard to picture them getting together.  Not only are their personalities complete polar opposites, but so is the way the carry themselves.  This is the only part of the story I had an issue with.  Not because Newt is overweight and does not take care of himself, but because of the way Freddy treats him in the beginning.  Freddy’s attitude bordered on abusive and it was hard for me to like him in the beginning.  As the story progressed however, both these secondary characters grew on me and I wanted to see them find their happily ever after.  When the mystery surrounding Freddy is wrapped up, readers will be surprised by all the secrets that are revealed. 

This is a series that needs to be read in order.  Fans of this series are sure to love this new book and wonder where the series is going, especially after Liam’s and Aidan’s fears are made apparent.
