For years Tyler has longed, lusted and burned for the girl who saved his life. He’ll do anything to have her—including hiring her as his bodyguard. But when the girl of his dreams turns out to have a dark streak he never could have imagined, he’ll need more in his seductive arsenal than sweet talk—he’ll have to find out just how far he’s prepared to go to get her.
Brooke has been through the kind of hell that doesn’t make it into most people’s nightmares. She’s strong, she’s fierce and she believes the only place any man belongs in her life is wedged under the toe of her shoe. Ty is the one man to get under her skin and send her mindless with desire. He’s also a spanner in her life that could undo everything she’s worked for.
She wants him—but can a man like Ty handle the kind of fantasies she has in mind?
Dominant and seductive as hell!
It’s not every day you get to read a novel with two dominant characters, with one willing to forgo control to have the other! Meet Tyler, the hot billionaire searching for the one woman who saved his life, and Brooke, the woman who needs control like she breathes for it.
Brooke is not your average dominatrix who strives on control. In fact, I don’t think she’s a dominatrix but she needs control to keep her grounded from the hell she went through.
Two things I was surprised about – how Brooke saved his life, and also, how far Tyler went just to have Brooke in his arms.
The way Brooke saved Tyler’s life is rather interesting. I swear, it’s such an innovative way to keep someone alive. I have never even considered that possibility till I read FOR HIS PROTECTION! It’s funny how arousal can keep a person alert!
Though I suppose, at that moment, a person would do anything to keep another alive. Drastic times calls for drastic measures!
Tyler saw Brooke as the angel who saved his life and he wants to have her in his arms. Normally, guys like him would rather be the dominant one in any relationship but I’m surprised at how far he would relinquish his control just to have Brooke.
I’m kind of shocked to be honest. It’s as if he is under Brooke’s spell and all he want was her. Well, that is also partly the reason why I love this novel!
I just wished that there was more elaboration and interaction between them, them finding and having more than just understanding for each other. Like…a more in depth understanding of their souls?
(Wait, does that even make sense?!)
It was rather a short read for me, and I wish there was more between Brooke and Tyler!
Recommended for readers who like to see an exchange of power between the characters and just how far both of them would go for each other!
