Talia Shaw has spent her adult life working as a scientist for a big pharmaceutical company. She’s focused on saving lives, not living life. When her lab is broken into and it's clear someone is after the top secret formula she’s working on, she turns to the one man she can trust. The same irresistible man she turned away years earlier because she was too young and naive to believe a sexy guy like Shane Landon could want her.
Shane Landon’s bodyguard work for McKay-Taggart is the one thing that brings him satisfaction in his life. Relationships come in second to the job. Always. Then little brainiac Talia Shaw shows up in his backyard, frightened and on the run, and his world is turned upside down. And not just because she’s found him naked in his outdoor shower, either.
With Talia's life in danger, Shane has to get her out of town and to her eccentric, hermit mentor who has the final piece of the formula she’s been working on, while keeping her safe from the men who are after her. Guarding Talia's body certainly isn't any hardship, but he never expects to fall hard and fast for his best friend’s little sister and the only woman who’s ever really gotten under his skin.
With danger around every corner, Talia needs help. Shane, her brother’s best friend, is in the bodyguard business and plans to protect her. But when feelings from their youth come to light will Shane be able to protect her and fall in love at the same time or will he walk away once she is finally safe. With a quick action filled storyline and beautifully written characters once again a Carly Phillips does not disappoint.
This was a terrific read. I could not put it down. It was fast moving and the characters were interesting and had a great backstory. Talia is a scientist for a pharmaceutical company that she found a breakthrough medication that others don’t want her to have so she needs protection which brings her bac to Shane, her brothers best friend and her crush from their childhood, who is a bodyguard for McKay-Tagart. When they go on the run they find out they both still have chemistry and both decide to just have what time they have together. But somehow whoever is after Talia they keep finding them. There is always something being going on in this book. Thee was so many twists and turns and the ending was great. Carly Phillips did not disappoint in this book. I highly recommend this read.
Fun quick read
This was a fun and quick read with just the right amount of smexy and suspense to make it difficult to put down and oh so easy to keep turning the pages until the very end.
I really liked Talia and Shane. While both are workaholics, they are both really good people. They are honest, determined and have this code of honor that shows itself in the career paths they chose and the reasons behind it. Though their journey to their HEA is quick, it was still absolutely satisfying. They have something of a second-chance at love thing going on and I enjoyed watching as they re-hashed their past while getting to know each other as the adults they are. There were a few bumps, outside being on the run, but nothing angsty and I loved how they figured things out in the end.
So if you’re looking for a quick read with just the right amount of smexy and suspense, then this His to Protect is a must read for you!
