His Lover to Protect by Katee Robert

Happy Release Week!!!

His Lover to Protect
An Out of Uniform Novel

by Katee Robert

Entangled Brazen
Pub Date Sep 9, 2015

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...

Kathie's Review:

I was really looking forward to reading Alexis' story. At the end of the last book, Falling For His Best Friend, Alexis had left the country when her sister's pregnancy had been the last straw for her fragile mental state. I could understand this. Alexis had fought, and won, against cancer, but she will never be able to have a biological child. She really needed to get away and find some peace.

Her sister and her husband, and his brother, were worried about her so they sent a "babysitter" after her. Luke is just getting back on his feet after his knee was destroyed by an IED. He figured trailing around after this chick would be easy, not knowing she was a rabid hiker! His bum knee brings him to her attention...and then she nearly punches his lights out. He likes this feisty woman! He likes her a lot...

We all know that when she asks him if he knows her BIL and he lies about it, that it's going to come back and bite him in the butt. I was waiting for that moment...and it was certainly an ouchie one!

I'm not sure if the series will continue on, as I didn't see a supporting character that needed their own HEA...but I'm sad that Alexis' grandparents still didn't get a "come to Jesus" moment. They are truly horrible people and deserve some kind of smack down! 

I did enjoy this, and would really like to see another in the series. 

Thank you, Entangled and Netgalley, for the opportunity to read this book.

Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her grandpa's knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.

Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way--as it often does--and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she'd like to write a book and try to get published.

Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn't want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?

She now spends her time--when not lost in Far Reach worlds--playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
