Police officer Mia Donovan is studying for the detective’s exam when her captain offers her an assignment – be Finn O’Rourke’s personal bodyguard for the next three weeks. He’s in town to film a movie, he has a stalker, and the threats are escalating.
Mia isn’t interested – she’s focused on the looming exam. But her captain convinces her that successfully protecting Finn will look very good on her record when promotion decisions are made. So, reluctantly, she takes the assignment.
Finn isn’t the arrogant, egotistical actor Mia expected. There’s more than meets the eye when it comes to the ‘most hated man in America’, Finn’s nickname since he cheated on his girlfriend, a beloved pop star.
But his stalker is lurking and the threat is escalating. Although Mia’s feelings for Finn are growing, her job is to protect Finn, not fall in love with him.
I don’t read too many cop books, but at the hint of a female officer posing as a bodyguard, posing as a girlfriend… I couldn’t resist!
Margaret kept me on my toes throughout the entire book. I would keep guessing who the stalker would be. At first glance, I did think it was kind of predictable; however, that is not the case! I had to know what happened next! Protect Me is extremely well written, and the characters are complex. Even for an actor
Mia and Finn are something else! Shockingly enough, I was rooting for them since that first kiss. The one that helped them to blend on, on Mia’s first day on the job. I could not get them out of my head! Finn is worth all the risk, and then some. What I wouldn’t give to be protecting him… 😉
I am definitely interested in reading more about the Donovan family. They seem intriguing, especially since they’re all cops!
