My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Protecting the Billionaire features Allison, a member of the Sherbrooke clan, and Rock (Rocco), a marine intent on protecting those he cares for. Rock, who met Allison previously at his sister Addie’s wedding, finds himself entangled when he plays the part of fake-boyfriend for a night. The two quickly hit it off and turn fake into real.
There’s some danger lurking in the shadows: Allison has a stalker. Weird things keep happening and the reveal is a bit of a shocker. There are brief narrations from the stalker’s depraved head sprinkled throughout the book.
I found the story a nice, fast-paced read that had an enjoyable mix of mystery and romance, with just a couple of cons. Sometimes the main characters’ PoV shifts were in mid-scene with no white space or transition, so it was a bit jarring when that happened. I also would have liked a longer conclusion, maybe a jump of a few years just to see where they end up.
I received a complementary copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
