From the moment I laid eyes on Shay Cane, I knew she’d be trouble.
I swore I’d never work with another celebrity, but when Jackson asked me to protect her from a stalker, I couldn’t refuse.
I need to protect her.
Being near the beautiful, young woman is even more difficult than I imagined. No matter how hard I fight to keep things professional, she gets under my skin, testing me…tempting me.
And now I want her more than my next breath.
But I know all too well that distractions can get someone killed, and I won’t risk Shay’s life.
How can I still keep her safe if she’s in my arms…in my bed?
When she pushes me to my limits, and I break every rule as a protector, it might be the mistake that costs us both everything.
3 Heart Review by Ashley
New to me romantic suspense author coupled with Jackson and Catherine from The Salvation Society...yes please! I loved how Lia Fairchild included them into this story in a new and fresh way without losing who they were.
As for Protector...I liked that Shay was determined not to let her situation change her or her life. While she was nervous, anxious and fearful of what was happening, she was determined to not let her stalker win. Enter Brooks. Broody and reserved. Smart and willing to do what it took to get the job done.
In this instance that was keeping Shay safe through her various ventures. She didn't make it easy on him. Flirting and going out. Putting herself in a position where there were too many people to keep an eye on them all. But somewhere between the nagging and pushing buttons something shifted. An understanding. Respect. Like...maybe more...
I wanted more danger thrown into the mix as they scrambled to figure out who the mystery man was. I won't lie, I figured out who was behind everything before the big reveal- the clues are certainly there if you follow them. That being said, I read Protector in one sitting. Brooks and Shay's bodyguard romance was equal parts sassy and suspenseful, sexy and sweet.
