Synopsis: My life was just like any other girl’s until the Maxwell corporate empire ruined my family and stole my future. I’d given up hoping to see justice done, but then the way to right this wrong was dropped in my lap. My job with an event planner can get me into the home of one of Maxwell’s business partners. I can find evidence of what they did to my father. I can make sure they pay. I wasn't expecting Sebastian. Sebastian has been hired for security, but he is also the son of the man I despise. I should hate Sebastian purely on principle. I shouldn’t care that he’s sweet and funny and sexy as hell. He’ll always be a Maxwell, and that means he’s my enemy.

I can’t help but want him anyway.

He seems to want me too, but only for a good time. He’s the son of privilege, and he’ll never be serious about me. He’ll also never betray his family. If he finds out what I’m really doing here, he’ll turn on me in an instant. He’ll keep me from finding justice.

It’s just that I keep finding him instead.

4.5 Stars!

Review: This is the second book in the Protector's series, and it continues the four friends' stories with Sebastian. Sebastian comes from money, but he has been fighting his family's expectations of him his whole life, which is what led to his joining the military to begin with. He enlisted and became good friends with Gavin, Declan, Cole and Levi. Now, the group is down one after Gavin's death while on a mission. Each man is trying to figure out what his life looks like, now that their paths are taking different turns than what they had planned.

The remaining four guys have started a security business, and Sebastian has been asked to guard one of his father's friends. Sebastian and his friends are pretty insulted at the job, as it seems to be more of Sebastian's father humoring him and trying to blackmail him back into the family business. Sebastian begins to feel differently about the assignment, however, after he meets Ali. Ali is the assistant to the event planner that is planning a big event for the person that Sebastian is currently guarding.

Ali has her own reasons for being there, too, however. She has many reasons to distrust anyone associated with the Maxwell company, as her dad was laid off from there, as well as being completed denied any of his severance, retirement, vacation, etc. With this current event assignment, she is hopeful to find evidence that there were shady and illegal dealings that led to her father's situation. Sebastian keeps finding her and thwarting each of her attempts to find the information, however. She also has difficulty trusting Sebastian once she finds out his last name.

I enjoyed this book, as both characters really have to learn how to trust one another, and also how to not give up on someone just because they do not give you exactly what you want. Ali had to learn her value, even within her own family, and Sebastian had to prove his value to his father in order to break away from him. I can't wait to see what happens with the other guys!

I used to think I could be a hero, but one deadly night destroyed that delusion. So I’ve come home defeated. My military career, my best friend, my purpose—all of it is lost.

What I find is her.

She’s my best friend’s sister, and she’s everything I shouldn’t want. She’s on a hopeless quest for answers about her brother’s death, but those are secrets that can never come to light. She’s always been a fighter, and she desperately wants the truth.

I desperately want her.

Someone is trying to kill her now, and she won’t let me keep her safe. I have to do it anyway, even if she doesn’t trust me, even if she hates me for it. A man protects what’s precious to him, whether or not he can ever claim her for his own. So she becomes my purpose.

I’ll become a hero for her.

About Noelle Adams: 
Noelle handwrote her first romance novel in a spiral-bound notebook when she was twelve, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She has lived in eight different states and currently resides in Virginia, where she teaches English, reads any book she can get her hands on, and offers tribute to a very spoiled cocker spaniel.

She loves travel, art, history, and ice cream. After spending far too many years of her life in graduate school, she has decided to reorient her priorities and focus on writing contemporary romances.

About Samantha Chase: 
Contemporary romance writer Samantha Chase released her debut novel, Jordan's Return, in November 2011. Although she waited until she was in her 40's to publish for the first time, writing has been a lifelong passion. Her motivation to take that step was her students: teaching creative writing to elementary age students all the way up through high school and encouraging those students to follow their writing dreams gave Samantha the confidence to take that step as well.

Her second book, a holiday novella titled "The Christmas Cottage" hit #10 on Amazon's Best Seller List on Christmas Eve. It was a great Christmas gift! Watching the numbers rise and fall is a daily roller coaster ride but definitely an exciting one! And on February 25th, she released the follow up novella - "Ever After" - available exclusively on Amazon.

When she's not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, blogging, playing way too many games of Scrabble on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 23 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
