Book Review - Hot Protector by Lynn Raye Harris

ABOUT THE BOOK

Sometimes the forbidden is impossible to resist… 

Special Ops soldier Chase “Fiddler” Daniels is just back from a dangerous mission overseas. He needs sleep and sex—and not necessarily in that order. When Sophie Nash arrives on his doorstep, he doesn’t recognize the stepsister he hasn’t seen in ten years. And when she spins a tale involving a Russian billionaire and secret files, he doesn’t believe her. Until someone firebombs his apartment with them inside… 

Now they’re on the run, and grown-up Sophie is more compelling than he ever thought possible. But she’s off-limits, and Chase won’t cross that boundary—or will he? 

Sophie Nash only wants life to return to normal. Get the files she mailed to Paris and find out what’s in them. Stop Grigori Androv from hurting anyone else. Live and let live. Except the stakes are high in this game of cat and mouse, and there’s no assurance she’s going to come out on top. Maybe that’s why she can’t quite resist Chase’s alpha magnetism. 

Or why she finds herself falling for her very hot, very lethal—very forbidden—protector… 

“Lynn's Hostile Operations Team is one of those series that just addictingly good. It doesn't matter how many books she'll write for it because I know I'll read every single one. Every. Single. One. They're that good. It's the perfect combination of sizzling romance with heartpounding suspense. It's action packed and sexy.

REVIEW

I've been reading the Hot series for two years now and I am always waiting for the next installment.  Lynn Raye Harris does a great job of combining action with steamy and sexy romance.  Neither the action or the romance gets in the way of the other.  Hot Protector takes on a popular romance trope of late, falling in love with your Stepbrother.  I'm not gonna lie, I'm still not a fan, but I did at least find it believable in this case.  Chase and Sophie never felt like they were related and the heat between them never really felt creepy.  If like me, you do not like this particular type of story, I still recommend the book.  If you like books with a mix of action and romance, this is definitely the book for you.


OVERALL RATING - 4.5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
