Happy Release Day!!! Protecting Her by Alexis Noelle

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. 

Until Her.

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. 

Until him.

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?

 3.4 stars 
This was a good story. I really liked it. No need to recap you can read the synopsis so I will just jump to it and give you my opinion. So let me start with the 2 main characters. You have Sam, the rock star and Hunter, the self proclaimed asshole. I liked Sam's character and felt almost sorry for her. She was easy to relate to if I was a late teen early 20 something rock star who just wanted to be loved by her mom. Now for Hunter. Yep I hated him at first. He was cocky and arrogant and just a plain asshole manwhore.  I admit I was kind of hoping Sam would be the one to kick his ass and show him the error of his ways BUT she did one better. She showed him with kindness. By about 20% in I was falling in love with Hunter. He had the hard badass way but then he had the sweet side too that was brought out when he least expected it and only when Sam was involved. It really showed the whole "better half" of both of them. 

It was well written and had me hanging on every word just waiting to see what happened next. Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen there was a wonderful twist. 

So what could have made it better for me and raised the stars. It left me with questions. I don't want to give anything away so I can't really say what questions but I can say maybe just a little more background on some of the important characters to the plot would have answered some of those. 

It was a good story and I really enjoyed it. If you want a fast and easy read then you should check it out. I will be checking out some of her other books. This book was one of my first from her and I think she has a great style. I love when I find a new author to read from.
