This is the first Lavinia Lewis title I’ve read, but based on this hot novel, I’ll definitely be coming back for more. Bollywood Desires is a m/m erotic romance set in Mumbai. It tells the story of Bollywood star Rajkumar Khan and bodyguard Brent Hawthorne.
Brent’s security company want Raj’s business, and so Brent goes along to a meeting to try and win the contract. However, as soon as he meets Raj, he has more on his mind than protecting the actor – he finds him incredibly attractive and has trouble hiding it. It seems Raj feels the same – but there are problems awaiting them. One, Brent is a consummate professional and wouldn’t consider dating or sleeping with his clients, and two, Raj is still firmly in the closet. Only a tiny number of people know about his sexuality – and he wants to keep it that way.
Regardless of the two men’s feelings for one another, Brent’s company is given the contract, and get to work immediately. The actor is being sent anonymous letters which threaten both his life and to reveal his secret, so Brent and his team have their work cut out for them. They must keep Raj safe and get to the bottom of the blackmail.
The more time Brent spends with Raj, the more he wants him. But because he works for him, and because a relationship could cost Raj his life, the bodyguard does his best to keep his distance. The trouble is, Raj doesn’t give in easily and is determined to prove how good they could be together, no matter what the consequences are.
Wow – this is one super hot book! It’s an erotic romance and a thriller combined, which makes for a very exciting read.

Bollywood Desires is a well-written, engaging, heart-warming and incredibly sexy book. If you like red hot m/m erotic romance, then you should definitely get your hands on this book.
