He's never met a challenge he couldn't take...
Alexis Yeung did everything right....only to watch everything go horribly, horribly wrong. Broken and angry, Alexis high-tails it to Europe, determined to face the world on her own terms and without consequence. Which includes a mind-blowing night with a sexy, scarred stranger.
Except, embittered former pararescuer Luke Jackson isn't exactly a stranger. He's supposed to keep an eye on Alexis without her knowing. Ending up in bed together was definitely not the plan. Now he's chasing her (admittedly hot) ass across Europe, a game of cat and mouse that always ends with the two of them tangled up in the sheets.
Something in their scarred, damaged souls calls to each other. And God help them, the sex in unbelievably hot. But if Alexis discovers who Luke really is, he'll lose the one thing that makes him feel whole...
See where it all began with book 1 of the Out of Uniform series, In Bed with Mr. Wrong.
Reese's Review:Alexis Yeung has lost the ability to have children and then dumped by her fiancé of three years. When her sister becomes pregnant and her family tells her she’s a disappointment Alexis decides to go on a journey to find herself and become a stronger woman. On her journey of self discovery she runs into Luke the man under cover sent to make sure Alexis is safe throughout her trip. He wasn’t supposed to make contact, but as soon as they run into each other they find themselves being pulled together by more than a mission.
Aleexis has lived a sad life wishing her mother was alive instead of her and so she leaves to find out who she is without the ability to have children. She’s really rude throughout the trip and while it works I didn’t like that she would treat people like that. Despite that I enjoyed watching her character grow and change throughout the story.
Luke was injured in the line of duty and was told he would never walk the same again. Now he’s trying to deal with his lose of identity and settles on helping an old friend watch Alexis. At first he thinks she’s a spoiled girl who knows nothing about the world, but quickly changes his mind.
Their relationship is somewhat built on lies and distrust and genuine rudeness but seems to work for them.
I enjoyed the continuation of this storyline and I’m glad everyone got a happy ending.
I received a copy of His Lover to Protect for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley and Entangled Brazen publishing for giving me a copy of this book.
She pointed a shaking finger, and he followed the line down to the… He blinked, part of him wondering if this was some kind of joke. “A spider. You screamed bloody murder because of a tiny little half-drowned spider.”
Alexis made another frightened noise that was just this side of a shriek. “Kill it. Oh my God, just kill it.”
Even though she was obviously afraid, he couldn’t help a little snark. “Don't move. I think it can smell fear.” He hurried back into the bedroom and retrieved a boot. One well-placed smash later, the threat was eliminated—and his boot was wet. “He’s gone. You’re safe.”
“Thanks.” She looked around the bathroom as if expecting more spiders to pour from the vents or something.
Luke shook his head, not sure if he should hug her or laugh his ass off. “Princess, you kicked my ass and laughed at me afterward. You scaled a twenty-story cliff. How are you possibly afraid of a little bug?”
Her shiver was so violent, it made the rings on the shower curtain rattle. “You’re a grown man. Grown men do not scuttle.” She shuddered. “Spiders scuttle. It’s freaky and unnatural.”
Holy shit, she was downright precious. He grinned. “The distinction is noted.” And so were the soapsuds sliding down from her hair, between her breasts, and over the long line of her stomach. He wanted to trace that same path with his tongue, and take it one step further to drape her leg over his shoulder so he had nothing stopping his ability to taste her there.
Suddenly, he wasn’t feeling all that tired at all.
“If you could see the way you’re looking at me.”
“Like what?” He already knew. He just wanted to hear her say it. He didn’t think he’d ever get tired of hearing filthy words come out of Alexis Yeung’s mouth.
She licked her lips. “Like you want to take me up against this shower wall.”
Christ, but he did. Luke didn’t say anything, though. Not yet. He just let himself look his full, tracing her body with his gaze, from her pale pink toenails to her long legs, the tempting vee between her thighs, her nipples that practically begged for his mouth, and finally to her challenging hazel eyes. She was the most perfectly shaped woman he’d ever seen, and the fire of her personality only made her more attractive.
“Are you going to stand there and stare or are you going to lose the underwear and join me?” The tone of her voice said she didn’t think it was much of a decision, and she was right.
