Title: Protecting Her
Author: Alexis Noelle
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 15, 2015
I don’t do love. Hearts, flowers, dates, girlfriends, it’s all pointless. Why tie yourself down to one person when you can have a different one every night. Sure there have been a few that have intrigued me but none ever made me think about hanging around. No one ever haunted my thoughts after I left.
I just wanted one night of freedom. A chance to live without prying, judging eyes. When I met him, the moment he first touched me, it’s like I was hypnotized. I got caught up in the moment and made a mistake, I never thought he would be so cold after it. No one has ever made me feel that way.
Hunter Stone never imagined when he was assigned to guard one of the world’s up and coming stars that she would be the girl he used the night before. Now he has to be around her and make sure that she’s safe. Samantha Baker has been receiving anonymous threats, the last person she expected to walk through the door was the man that dismissed her the night before. Now she has to deal with his arrogant attitude on a daily basis, while she is still infatuated with him.
When you push love away will you be able to recognize it when it’s right in front of your face? Or will everything be ripped away before you get the chance to really live?
Review By Shannon Pacsuta: 4.0 ★★★★
Samantha Baker, aka Sam is a well known pop star and Hunter Stone is hired to be her security guard due to the fact that she’s being stalked. Much to her surprise and dismay, he also happens to be the guy she just had a one night stand with the night before. Add to the mix that he left her with a “wham, bam, thank you ma’am”, and there are sure to be some sparks . Sam is also dealing with a mom/manager from hell. Will Sam ever stand up to her mom? I was certainly wanting to reach through my kindle and slap her momma. Who is her stalking her and will they get to her? But more importantly, how long can Sam and Hunter keep their walls up around each other? The sparks are igniting every time they’re around each other. The choice is up to them though. Will the fire burn fast and hot, only to be smothered out? Or will it be stoked and tended to so that it will keep them warm for a lifetime?I enjoyed Alexis Noelle’s writing style and the way she developed the characters. I loved the introduction of the supporting characters as well, and it makes me curious if there will be stories about any of them in the future. I’ll certainly be on the lookout for more books by this author. I give Protecting Her 4 stars.*I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
Review by Lita Thomas: 4.5 ★★★★.5
Protecting Her by Alexis Noelle Samantha Blake is a star with an overbearing mother/manager. One night she decides to sneak out and meets Hunter Stone. Hunter stone is a real tool/ douche. He is what I would call a hit it and go type of guy. He has his own issues and doesn’t want to get close to anyone so that is why he just goes from one girl to another and never sleeps with the same girl twice. Hunter is looking for fresh meat and he sees a girl that he has never seen before. They start out dancing but end up in the office of the manager of the club having hot, heavy and quick sex. After it is over Hunter just walks out leaving his target feeling used and abused. The next day Samantha meets her new bodyguard; when she turns around who is standing there but the guy from the bar. She can’t say anything because her mother will know she snuck out. Their initial meeting was not pleasant and things could have gotten very ugly. Hunter needs this job and finds out he is happy to help Sam considering she has a stalker and her mother treat her like a dog. Their relationship develops as they try to figure out who is the stalker. I really enjoyed this story and it was over before I knew it. A good quick read. This was like no other story I have read before. Their journey is one of up and downs and the ending was definitely something I did not see coming. I give this story 4. 5 O’s ARC was received for an honest review.
