That’s What He Said Thursday – Rafael Soto – “Missed: Rafael and Lisa” by Tess Thompson

That’s What He Said is a weekly meme hosted by @Chapter Break. Here’s the deal: every Thursday, post a line from your book boyfriend to his heroine. Keep in mind, these are direct quotes from dialog in the books. The quote doesn’t have to be romantic – it can be anything spoken by a book boyfriend. Be sure to link up over at Chapter Break as well!


Lisa Perry’s dreams are finally coming true.  The world is at her feet until a tragic event changes the way she’ll see the world forever.

All Rafael Soto, ex Seal and cop turned personal bodyguard wants out of life is to get his Mamma and her best friend out of their drug infested neighborhood and to Cliffside Bay. He knows love isn’t for him . . .he’s seen too much overseas to ever find his own HEA, but he’ll settle for happy for now.

Suffering from PTSD, Lisa needs someone to go on her publicity tour with her to make her feel safe as she navigates the crowds and interviews she’ll be facing and Rafael is tasked with the job.  It’s a bit awkward, as both Lisa and Rafael are harboring crushes on one another, both thinking they aren’t good enough for the other. But, the more time they spend together, they more they both start to fall in love, quick and hard!


Lisa knows she wants Rafael, but he is the one to push her away at first because he doesn’t feel worthy of her.  But, once he decides to go all in, there is no turning back!

Missed: Rafael and Lisa by Tess Thompson


After years of struggling as a starving actor, Lisa Perry’s dreams are finally coming true. Splitting her time between Los Angeles and Cliffside Bay, the young beauty has a successful television miniseries, her first movie role, and quality time with her best friends Maggie and Pepper. Everything is coming up roses until a single tragic moment changes Lisa forever.

Haunted by unshakable memories and near-crippling anxiety, Lisa must face a publicity tour full of crowds and interviews in order to move her budding career forward. And with the help of Rafael Soto, the head of security for Brody and Kara Mullen, she finally begins to relax. Though the pair are as different as night and day, something about her temporary bodyguard soothes the young actress, and soon their relationship turns from professional to passionate.

But what neither anticipates is that despite the obvious threats to a beautiful ingenue, it’s actually her protector who stands in harm’s way. Will Lisa and Rafael be able to face the danger awaiting him together, or are they destined to accept yet another tragedy they can’t stop?
