His Lover to Protect by Katee Robert
Series: Out of Uniform #3
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Alexis Yeung did everything right....only to watch everything go horribly, horribly wrong. Broken and angry, Alexis high-tails it to Europe, determined to face the world on her own terms and without consequence. Which includes a mind-blowing night with a sexy, scarred stranger.
Except, embittered former pararescuer Luke Jackson isn't exactly a stranger. He's supposed to keep an eye on Alexis without her knowing. Ending up in bed together was definitely not the plan. Now he's chasing her (admittedly hot) ass across Europe, a game of cat and mouse that always ends with the two of them tangled up in the sheets.
Something in their scarred, damaged souls calls to each other. And God help them, the sex in unbelievably hot. But if Alexis discovers who Luke really is, he'll lose the one thing that makes him feel whole...
I am new to Katee Robert and the Out of Uniform series but I must say that I did enjoy this book. Alexis is running from her demons and taking a long vacation in Europe. Her family is worried enough about her that her brother-in-law has Luke Jackson (a fellow pararescuer) tail her without her knowledge. Luke helps out his friend by following Alexis and making sure she is safe. Of course Luke and Alexis end up sharing some very steamy nights together without her knowing who he really is.
I really enjoyed how strong both Luke and Alexis are as characters although Alexis is such a coward. I really had a hard time with her at first although as she grows throughout the story I start to understand and like her more. Both of the characters are scarred emotionally although there are physical scars as well. With I think makes them all the more endearing for the reader. At least I know that it did for me. I enjoyed it enough that I know I am going to read the other books in the series!
