This one was a suspenseful thriller with enough twists and turns to keep you guessing as to who the stalker is and passion and tension to keep you wanting to know whether Piper and Eric would end up having a happily ever after. Eric was a jerk to her their whole lives and all of a sudden he is no longer hiding his desire for her. When her life is jeopardized by a violent stalker Eric says enough is enough, his baby brother isn’t "popping the question" and he is tired of pushing her away. She has always been the only one for him and he is now ready to fight to win her and to prove to her his jerk-like ways were only a façade to hide his real feelings. I enjoyed their story a lot and the action and suspense was great.

I wanted to like this book but the mechanics of the writing is awful, no one speaks like that so it was hard to follow. I don't like have to reread paragraphs again and again to figure out if there was a typo or if I misread something - YUK!

This spirited romantic suspense has readers holding their breath in anticipation with thrilling excitement and an explosive romance. Eric and Piper are strong, energetic characters that readers can’t help but fall in love with and their romance is volatile with fiery sparks, scorching passion, sizzling chemistry and a magnetic attraction so strong readers can feel the draw. The relationship has lots of emotional turmoil due to some misconceptions and non-communication that had Eric and Piper fighting their attraction for some time, but now that they are forced to spend time together, their chemistry and passion is erupting into a fiery inferno. The story takes place at a fast clip and flows smoothly through suspenseful events, dangerous thrills and adrenaline pumping excitement. The interactions between all the characters and the dialogue and actions of the individuals are realistic and believable which makes it easy for the readers to picture each and every scene which in turn makes way for the readers to gasp in surprise during the unexpected twists and turns that occur both in the danger that is stalking Piper and in the relationship between Piper and Eric. Warning – there is never a dull moment to be found during this entertaining romance and the ignoring of all outside influences may occur while reading it.

PROTECTING PIPER is the first instalment in Cynthia Eden’s contemporary, adult, romantic suspense series focusing on the men and women who work for Wilde Securities. This is owner and security specialist Eric Wilde, and artist/gallery owner Piper Lane’s story line. Told from several third person perspectives including Eric and Piper PROTECTING PIPER follows the enemies to lovers relationship between owner and security specialist Eric Wilde, and artist/gallery owner Piper Lane. Most of her life Piper Lane believed her best friend’s brother hated her guts. From the age of seventeen, Eric Wilde kept his distance from Piper Lane, a distance meant to quell the need and desire for his brother’s best friend. When Piper becomes the target of a psychopathic mind, Eric and his team at Wilde Securities, make it their responsibility to protect the woman Eric has loved most of his life. What ensues is the rebuilding friendship and growing romance between Eric and Piper, as Eric struggles to stay one step ahead of the person trying to destroy our heroine’s life. Eric Wilde has been in love with his brother’s best friend Piper for as long as he can remember. Hoping to keep his distance, Eric continues to push Piper out of his life but in doing slowly builds a wall between everyone concerned. Piper has no idea why Eric has such a hate on towards her but that hasn’t stopped her attraction to her best friend’s brother. The deaths of several people connected to our heroine, and attacks against both her personal and business properties will send Piper into the arms of Eric Wilde, where the palpable sexual attraction finds our couple together, for good. The $ex scenes are seductive and impassioned, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced to Eric’s brother and Piper’s best friend, divorce attorney Ben Wilde; Wilde Securities VP and ex-SEAL Simon Forrest; security specialists Julia Slate and Rick Williams; Eric’s assistant Dennis; and tattoo artist Mark Rogue. Simon’s story line is next in Guarding Gwen. PROTECTING PIPER is a story of family, friendship, obsession and love. The premise is intriguing and suspenseful; the romance is spirited and passionate; the characters are energetic and strong. My one regret is that the identity of the guilty party is easily deduced.

This was a little bit of everything, a best friend’s brother, teenage crush, second chance, and enemies to lovers trope that included a hero who had actually loved the heroine for years but stayed to the side because of his brother. But when the opportunity and the right time finally arrived, Eric made his move and he wasn’t stepping back again. I absolutely loved Eric and the way he protected Piper. It’s no surprise that I love a jealous, possessive hero and this story had plenty of opportunities to highlight those characteristics in Eric. When trouble is stalking Piper he rushes in to help and takes every advantage of the situation that he can. Of course, Piper isn’t really complaining too much. She had a thing for him when she was young but throughout the years their relationship became strained to the point of him being a real a-hole to her and her responding negatively to his presence. Yes, there is some push and pull here (shout out to my Goodreads friend!) but it didn’t really bother me this time around as it usually would. They both had their reasons and I felt that they were valid. I was also in a place where I needed a great read and I always get that from this author. She did not disappoint. This is a fast paced story with a mystery that actually left me unsure as to who the villain was up until almost the very end. The chemistry between Eric and Piper was authentic and despite the years they had each individually fought against it, once they opened the door to a physical relationship the steam level shot into the nuclear stage. I enjoyed the heck out of this book and can’t wait for the next one!

Rated 3.5 Stars Protecting Piper is a fun, enemies to lovers suspense. It was a bit predictable but I still found it to be an enjoyable and sexy read with likeable main and secondary characters. Copy provided by author

3.5 to 4 stars! Protecting Piper is an intense, romantic suspense involving two main characters that have secretly loved one another for years but misunderstandings have stood in their way. Eric is the intense part to this story. That man was so wound up and lost in Piper. He just really sucked at communication. He has believed for many years that his brother was in love with her so he stepped aside. When Eric finds out Piper has a dangerous stalker, he's done stepping aside for his brother. He just has to convince Piper they belong together while he keeps her safe from her stalker. Piper thinks Eric hates her. He's pushed her away for so long she doesn't even consider that he could have feelings for her. She is nothing but confused when he refuses to leave her side once he finds out about her stalker The majority of this book is Eric and Piper dancing around their mutual but secretive love for each other. It's the only reason I didn't love this book more. I wanted to see them reveal their true feelings sooner, but the stalker storyline kept things very interesting. The key things about this book is that you will get a jealous/protective alpha, a strong heroine that still has a sweet side, a love story that starts out as enemies to lovers, and a plot that will have you trying to figure out who the stalker is.
