I liked this story. I hadn't read any of the other Sherbrooke books, but this book did fine as a stand alone. In brief in this book we see Allison living in Virginia, working for her cousin Jake, his wife pregnant and due any day. More importantly we meet Rock, who is a Marine stationed at Quantico and brother to Trent's wife Addie, also pregnant. Due date is shortly after Jake's wife. Addie invites her brother to dinner with them where Rock and Allison meet again, having met only briefly at a cousins wedding some months before. They seem to get along fairly well, so make plans to go out. The behind the scenes story that begins to come out is that Allison has been having odd things happen to her. Flat tires, an accident, feeling like someone is watching her, she waits far too long to tell anyone. After getting a gift at the office she calls her brother thinking it was him and he tells her to call the police. Which she doesn't. Rock senses something is going on, not only with her, but his own sense of being watched. Allison has a stalker. And he's slick. Honestly the narration by this unknown stalker in the book is creepy. And you're really clueless as to who it is. The stalker gets braver and things escalate, Rocks best friend works for a high profile security firm, and Allison now has a bodyguard and Rock is living with her. The story culminates in a showdown between stalker, Rock and Allison. My first read from the author and the series and I enjoyed it. Well written, it's an easy read and the characters are developed well. I'd read more of this series. *arc from NetGalley and publisher** in exchange for an honest review.
I have read all The Sherbrooke Series and I don't ever tire of them. This is book 7 and I hope there is more to come in the series. I could not put this book down I was hooked from page 1. After all what's not to love about a Hot Marine ....... He is strong and sexy and he protects what is his. Rock first met Allison at his sisters wedding, they shared a dance and then went there seperate ways. Allison believes her mind is playing tricks with her, she was sure she set her alarm and turned the lights off and she keeps getting that feeling I'm being watched... Rock and Allison meet up again and his protective nature takes over and then romance blossoms. This book has it all love, sex and suspense. I was given this book from NetGalley for an honest review
I love the Sherbrookes and have bought every book in the series. Power, wealth and family are the perfect adjectives for this group. However, LOVE is the backbone of all the success they have and individuality is what makes them a force to be reckoned with as a whole. When trouble finds them, as it often does, they handle it unitedly. Protecting the Billionaire is Allison's story. Wanting more than recognition for her family name, she seeks to make her own way in the world. When danger calls, she will need every ounce of her own strength to get through it. With a protective family, a determined marine and an unknown assailant, she has a lot on her plate. Protecting the Billionaire is full of heartstopping moments and adrenaline pumping twists. A pleasurable dive into the realm of romantic suspense.
