Bodyguard Book Reviews Contemporary Romance Ella Frank Grumpy/Sunshine Men in Uniform MM Romance Opposites Attract Siblings Best Friend

Prime Time Trilogy Review

Inside Affair is book one in the Prime Time trilogy by Ella Frank. An MM romance with some great tropes including bodyguard, brothers best friend and grumpy/sunshine and forced proximity. 

Xander is a prime-time news anchor, the brothers best friend (and ex boyfriend) and in need a bodyguard after a stalker sends in threats to his life. 

Sean is a surly, grumpy detective with the Chicago PD and all round pain in the ass. But he’s Xander’s best defence against a stalker. 

Sean and Xander are forced to spend every moment together to ensure Xander’s safety. With all the time spent they soon start to realise that while they’ve known each other most of their lives, they don’t truly know each. 

I absolutely love the grumpy/sunshine trope. Especially when the the big grump is complete definition of it like Sean, he is detective dick after all. 


Breaking News is book two in the Prime Time trilogy by Ella Frank. An MM romance with some great tropes including bodyguard, brothers best friend and grumpy/sunshine and forced proximity. 

Picking up where the cliffhanger in Inside Affair left us this book really does expand on the growing love between Xander and Sean. While totally unexpected to them as characters given their history these two are the perfect opposites. 

I love that Sean still continues to keep his grumpy persona, just because he’s feelings have developed for Xander he hasn’t lost the part of his identity we love – Detective dick haha. 


Headlines is book three in the Prime Time trilogy. An MM romance with some great tropes including bodyguard, brothers best friend and grumpy/sunshine and forced proximity. 

Falling in love with your brothers best friend would be awkward enough right? So how about when that person is also his ex? Sean and Xander’s relationship is put to the test within this book. Tension and angst is in high supply with Bailey 

The change in narrative being Sean and Xander’s story showed a completely different side to Bailey and the hurt that these brothers had previously experienced dredged up some confrontation that created a good level of angst.
