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.
Protecting His Best Friend's Sister was originally published as Duty Bound. It has since been expanded, revised, and re-edited.
The female character really needs to grow up, she's incredibly obnoxious and the male character is her doormat... I wouldn't recommend this book.
PROTECTING HIS BEST FRIEND'S SISTER
She’s feisty and determined to get answers. He needs to make sure the danger surrounding her doesn’t escalate. A connection between the two that they never acted on as teenagers … yet it is still flaring between them. An okay plot and likable characters.
Harper Murphy is determined to get the details about the accident that killed her Marine brother. She doesn’t care who’s cage she riles, she’s going to get an understanding of exactly what happened or she won’t give stop.
Levi was Gavin’s best friend and fellow Marine and he is going to watch over her just like he knows Gavin would have wanted him to, so when suspicious things start happening around her, he’s on top of keeping her out of harms way … only problem is, he’s been secretly lusting after her for all of his adult life … the only woman he wants is the one woman he can’t have.
Another wonderful story by Samantha Chase and Noelle Adams as they penned Protecting His Best Friend’s Sister, the first book in their Protector’s Series. These two ladies definitely know how to write together and produce a flowing and intriguing story. As the title states, this is a best friend’s little sister trope with lots of drama and charm.
Levi has always been friends with Gavin and thus Harper, Gavin’s younger sister. Harper might be younger, smaller, and a girl but she is determined to prove her independence and strength. Gavin couldn’t pinpoint when he first fell for Harper but knew in his heart he would always be there to protect her, especially after Gavin’s death in Afghanistan. Harper rebels against what she interprets as control on Levi’s part, fighting her interest and desire for him. When Harper’s life is threatened, Levi steps up his game to determine who the culprit is and to keep Harper safe.
His Best Friend’s Sister is a great story with plenty of attempts at romance! Levi and Harper share a special chemistry and compassion with each other that is demonstrated throughout the book. I really enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting it down. I recommend this book to other readers. It makes for a wonderful, light easy read. Although this book is part of a series it is a standalone story.
