Protecting His Best Friend's Sister was originally published as Duty Bound. It has since been expanded, revised, and re-edited.
The only woman I want is the one I can never have.
Harper. My best friend’s sister. I've wanted her since I was eighteen, but she's always been off-limits. Now I'm home after years in the Marines, and nothing has changed--except everything has. Her brother is dead, and she’s on a hopeless quest for answers about his death.
And I want her just as much as ever.
Someone is trying to kill her now, and she won’t let me keep her safe. I have to protect her anyway, even if she doesn’t trust me, even if she hates me for it. A man protects what’s precious to him, whether or not he can ever claim her for his own.
And Harper has always been precious to me.
A Wonderful Surprise!
Let me first say, I am not a big fan of stories told in the first-person voice or the falling for the best friends sister sub-genre BUT I do love Ms. Chase's stories! So I decided to give this story a shot and BOY, am I glad I did!! This story was FANTASTIC!! Harper and Levi are HOT!! I also enjoyed the touch of suspense that just added to a great story. I am so excited and looking forward to reading more stories in this series!!
An Emotinal Read!
Oh my, what an emotional start to a rewritten series. Levi has always been the protector, but when his best friend, Gavin dies over seas, it is now time to protect his little sister Harper. When Harper starts looking into the death of her brother, her life is threatened and Levi steps in to protect her in more than one way.
This story is packed full of mystery and romance. Levi is so swoon worthy!! I could not put this book down. I love this dynamic writing team of Samantha and Noelle. I highly recommend!!
Harper and Levi sizzle when together, whether Harper wants to or not! She had a little crush on her brothers best friend, but got her heart broken (unintentionally on Levi's part) and she's not quick to forgive. It doesn't help that her brother Gavin was killed and Levi is a reminder that some come home from war and others do not.
But Levi has that protective alpha gene happening, along with his own not-so-little, unrequited crush, so he's all over Harper, for her own good. And once she starts digging into the reasons behind her brothers death, danger seems to be following her.
It might be hard to like Harper, given that she's loud, a little brash and apparently holds a grudge. Maybe that's why I liked her so much! She needs that edge to be taken seriously, in her mind anyway, because she's small and delicate. Levi is awesome; sweet and strong, vulnerable and no-nonsense..exactly how o like my alphas. Their story is steamy but not raunchy (hey, there's nothing wrong with that, either!) and extremely well written. I think Samantha Chase and Noelle Adams pull off a seamless narrative that doesn't make it apparent that the book is written by two people. I never felt I was reading from two different perspectives, writing wise. I enjoy their collaborations and hope that the rest of this series is as good as this one was! 4 stars!
