Teenage kickboxing champion Connor Reeves is determined to do his father, a former special forces soldier, proud. Recruited into the ranks of a top-secret young bodyguard squad known as Guardian, Connor trains in surveillance, anti-ambush exercises, hostage survival and unarmed combat. Whatever it takes to prepare him for the dangerous missions ahead. But nothing can prepare Connor for his first assignment when the US president summons him to protect the First Daughter. For not even the Secret Service knows that a terrorist sleeper cell has been activated in America. Its mission: to take the president’s daughter hostage. (Description taken from the book: Recruit.
Very descriptive fighting, Connor gets stabbed, grenades, shooting, bomb disguised as dead dog, bombs exploding, war zone, someone died from hitting his head on the windshield, another person died in war zone, someone bled from getting shot.
Connor and Alicia dance, no one says anything but it’s obvious that Connor has a crush on Charley (another girl from the bodyguard training center).

For your information, these books were made in the U.K. The U.K. version has every two books combined. The USA version has them split apart. Here’s an example:
U.S.A. – #1 Recruit (part one) #2 Hostage (part two)
U.K. – #1 Hostage (both combined)
This goes for EVERY two books so: 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6. And so on.
*The more stars the better.
The last two bodyguard books are the U.K. version because the USA has not published them yet.
