When a stalker gets too close to plus-size model Mae Cooper, it’s time to hire some muscle.

Enter former military man turned executive protection officer Ziggy Thayer. Having spent years guarding billionaires, royalty, and rock n roll greats, he’s seen it all. From lavish parties through to every kind of excess.

There’s no reason some Instagram stylista should throw him off his game. Even if she does have the most dangerous curves he’s ever seen...

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Closer is a fun, quick read that is full of humor and suspense.  Mae is a famous plus-sized model with a rather large instagram following when she finds herself in the path of a stalker and what a stalker he is!  I absolutely loved Mae and I am impressed with how well her character was developed given that this was a short novella.  She is quite the smarty pants.  Many times I found myself chuckling over her sarcasm and witty inner monologues.  Ziggy is not a bodyguard, but rather a “close protection officer” as he insists on being called.  Tasked with protecting the lovely Mae, he takes his job quite seriously. He is rather serious and Mae would crack me up with her inner musings of what a stony facade he puts forth. Did his mouth tip up into a semi-smile by perhaps an 1/8 of inch there?   This novella was fast-paced complete with humor, action, and some hot scenes.    I’m fascinated by how much the author was able to fit into this novella. There were a few cameos from the Stage Dive band members and their significant others which I loved.  While this is a Stage Dive novella, I would say that this can be read as a standalone.  Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to see what the author writes next! I received an early complimentary version of this book.
