Review for His to Protect by Stacey Lynn - 5 out of 5!
Declan James lost his last ounce of trust the day his wife walked out the door, leaving him to save the restaurant they built together. Throwing himself into his work, Declan swears off women—or at least, women who expect him to stick around in the morning. But when he discovers a skittish beauty scrounging through the Fireside’s trash to feed her dog, Declan offers her a job and a place to rest her head. There’s just something about her that awakens his protective side. And soon, not even that mangy mutt can stop Declan from caring for her.
After one too many trips to the ER, Trina Wilson finally gathered the courage to leave her husband, taking only her car and hyperactive boxer. Unfortunately, life on the run proves harder than she anticipated—until Declan takes a leap of faith on her. But even as Trina starts to see beyond his gruff exterior, she can’t relax, even for a moment. Not with her husband still tracking her down. What Trina doesn’t know is that in Declan, she has a powerful ally—and, if she would only follow her heart, a devoted lover.
MY REVIEW -
Another great book in this series! I'm really loving Stacey Lynn's writing, and I'm excited to read the next book! I love how there isn't really any other woman/man drama, and the guys' past isn't thrown in our faces, and they are alpha males, but also sweet, nice guys. In His to Protect, Trina has left her abusive husband, but she has limited funds, and goes dumpster diving to feed her dog. Declan owns the business that Trina is finding food, and one night he catches her, and offers her a meal. Trina doesn't know if she can trust Declan, but there is something about him that puts her at ease, so she agrees. Declan feels an urge to protect Trina, so he offers her a place to stay until she decides what to do, and Trina at first doesn't accept, but when circumstances lead Trina into a tough spot, she agrees to accept Declan's help. Declan was such a sweetheart with his protective side, and I liked that he looked like a badass, but when he let his guard down, he has a soft side, and Trina definitely brought down his walls. I liked Trina, and I was glad she realized rather quickly that it was okay to accept help, and she was honest with herself about how she felt about Declan. I liked how seamlessly Trina and Declan mesh together, and I enjoyed the progression of their relationship. They have great chemistry, and the sex scenes were just right. I enjoyed the bit of suspense of wondering what would happen with Trina's husband; actually a little bit more would of been nice, but I enjoyed what was there. I loved seeing Blue and Tyson from the previous book, and I'm looking forward to reading; what I hope will be, Aiden and Chelsea's story! Interesting and entertaining till the end!
