When she was a child, I was tasked with her protection.
As a girl, I became her friend.
As a woman, I could no longer see the child I knew and was forced to fight a growing attraction.
Unable to lie and unable to tell the truth, I left.
Now I’ve returned to give the knowledge I couldn’t before, that she is half Fae.
The darkness is stalking her and I am desperate to teach her what she needs to know to protect herself.
And determined to make her mine.

This is my FIRST ADULT paranormal book, aw, so these too can be hot and sizzling. Besides the fact that I was entranced by the background of the story, the story of their world, of the fae guards and the villains that wants them gone. Their world is not like that of Harry Potter, where walls can move and staircases changes every now and then, it’s fairly like the normal world, with people who doesn’t grow old. Your grandmother can look like 25 years old. Don’t you just love this world? I love that part of their must-dos is the fact that they couldn’t tell a lie, or else darkness will pull them in. But it doesn’t mean they can’t omit some truth (isn’t this one lying by omission?). As a girl, Aden was Shaylee’s protector. But when Shaylee was growing up, and lines had been crossed, Aden decided to give her up. When the right time came along, and she needed to know the truth, he came back. And this time, he was going to claim her, and there was no going back. I totally forgot what it’s like to read paranormal books. It has been a while since I got my hands on something like this. Paranormal books, especially those that are well-written and well-thought of, can sucked you into another dimension, make you experience magic and allow you to think that for a while, people who have superpowers exist among us. Wishing you has one as well. Protecting Shaylee came to me accidentally because I was too busy to read the whole thing, I thought it wasn’t paranormal, but there you go, I clicked it, and since my curiosity was already piqued by the blurb, I decided to give it a try, and lo and behold, I liked it.

A new twist on the Fae! Full of fun, intrigue, suspense,  and steamy, steamy sex! Even if you're not a fan of paranormal or urban fantasy, I highly recommend this book. It appeals across the genres with the author's brilliantly created new world, I could almost believe it was real! 5 fabulous stars!!

Pretty much just Fairy porn with a bit of a story line thrown in. Not much substance and one dimensional characters. Only made it half way through...to be deleted.

This book is great! Kinda runs along traditional fae stories but is unique in the way some myths are laid out. The writing and emotions you feel from the characters make this book 5 stars.

I really liked the fantasy mix and charactors in this. At first I thought Aiden was a bit chauvinistic but he ended up being a great guy.

I will admit that I couldn't even finish half of the book, so maybe this gets better. But from what I could stand to read, the main characters disgusts me. Your alpha male is a self centered, jerk. He is at least a hundred, but constantly acts in his early twenties. He crushes her heart, betrays her trust, and yet demands that she is his the moment he is back in her life. Your heroine isn't all that much better. She is given two very distinctive personalities. Either she is stubborn and hurt from his betrayl, or she's giving herself over to him because he's just so darn sexy. And she does this in the same sentence! I can't finish this book and I am going to be deleting it off my account, so I really would not recommend anyone try it.

Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars!  “It is common among humans to see things not as they are, but as their imaginations perceive them to be. Experiences are romanticized, and folklore is created. However, some of these tall tales are not as far-fetched as you might think. For within a lie, there is always a kernel of truth. Among these legends are those of otherworldly creatures and people. However, the truth is often so wildly distorted that you may not recognize them for what they are…” Ever since I read Erased, the debut novel by Elle Christensen and co-written by K. Webster, I have been waiting in anticipation for Elle’s next book. I was so excited when I heard that she was writing a paranormal/fantasy book. I am very picky when it comes to my paranormal/fantasy reads, so I’m always on the look out for something amazing. And boy did she knock it out of the park with this one. I loved the idea and thought behind this story-line. The fae world is something that I really love to indulge in and I love seeing other peoples take on it. Protecting Shaylee follows the story of Shaylee and Aden. Shaylee lived her entire life in the dark of who she truly is. She’s always been told stories of fairies or the fae, but never in her wildest dreams, did she imagine that those stories were real….Aden has always been a part of Shaylee’s life. He started off as her protector, and friend. As time passed on and Shaylee became a woman, new feelings started to develop. But things didn’t go as planned, when they finally act on their attraction, Shaylee is over the moon, only to discover that Aden has left…Now, 2 years later, Shaylee has come of age. It’s time for the truth to come out. Will Aden and Shaylee be able to get past their past regrets? Will Aden be able to protect Shaylee and teach her how to defend herself against the darkness that waits? Will Aden and Shaylee finally get their chance??? I have to say, I was sucked into this story from the very first page. It was so refreshing. Just the read I was looking for. I loved the story-line and the paranormal/fantasy elements within the modern setting. I knew from the moment that I met Shaylee and Aden that they were going to amazing together. And boy was I right. I loved watching the two of them together. Their banter was very entertaining. Shaylee challenged Aden and made him work hard for what he wanted. And Aden was a total alpha male! Once he realized that Shaylee was fated to him and that she wanted him just as much, he became as she called him, a total “caveman”. It was so entertaining to read! And their chemistry….Yowza! It was off the charts. Protecting Shaylee is a fast paced, enjoyable read. It’s funny, has angst, great twists, romance and of course STEAM!! I really enjoyed the world that Elle Christensen has created. I think this series is off to a really great start and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book! *I was provided an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
