Title: Protecting Her

Author:  Alexis Noelle

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?

~ 4.5 Stars ~

There is ones real reason I will always read an Alexis Noelle book and that is because even though her books are on the shorter side and are quick reads, they surely do pack a punch!!! Protecting Her was no different.

Protecting Her gets right to the point in the first chapter and it keeps you going all the way through. This story was filled with action, mystery, suspense, laughter, and romance. I will say I was taken by surprise when I started this book, because when I read the blurb for the book, I didn’t realize that Samantha was a celebrity and that Hunter is hired to protect her. I was pleasantly surprised and I really enjoyed this book.

There are really only 2 reasons I couldn’t give this book 5 stars. One being that I thought it ended to quickly, I would’ve liked to see more of Hunter and Sam after what happens in the end. The second reason is because there was cheating in this book, even though it is explained at the end of the book, I didn’t like what happened while it was going on. Had that scene not happened I could’ve easily given this book 5 stars.

Protecting Her is a stand-alone book and is written in Dual POV. Even though this isn’t listed as being a part of a series, this book follows along with a group of friends, who are each getting a book. The first book, Keeping Her, is the story of Brian and Julia, this is the story of their friend Hunter and the next book is called Saving Her and is the story of Mason and Lacey, which leaves their friend Ryan, who I am also hoping is getting his own story. I don’t believe that each of these books need to be read to understand each of them. This was my first book in this group and I never felt lost. Alexis fills in the gaps of how everyone knows each other.

This story was filled with lies and betrayal of the worst kind. I don’t want to say too much because I think you need to unravel this story on it’s own. I will tell you this, this is the story of Samantha and Hunter. Samantha is a musician who is controlled completely by her mom and she is fed up with it. So she decides to sneak out and go to a club without her mom knowing. This is where she meets Hunter, and to say their first encounter was explosive is an understatement. I will be honest…Hunter was hard to like in the beginning…..he was kind of a serious jerk, but he definitely grew on me quickly as the story unfolded. Samantha was a girl who just wanted someone to love her and to feel worthy of that love and Hunter was a man who was afraid to open his heart to loving again. It was great watching these two learn to love and trust each other.

So if you are a fan of a quick and sexy read, that is filled with suspense, lies and betrayal, then this is the love story for you. If you are a fan of Alexis Noelle’s then you don’t want to miss this book. I look forward to more of her books to come 🙂
