I liked Protecting Piper. It was suspenseful and sexy, with a very alpha hero, and a stubborn, but likeable heroine. There was a lot to like about this story. I liked the friendship between Piper and her best friend, Ben. I don’t read many books who have their kind of closeness without there being sexual tension behind it (given that they are both single). I liked the fact that I didn’t realize who the bad guy was going to be until the end (the misdirection was well done). I liked the hot chemistry between Piper and Eric. And I liked the secondary characters. They brought some welcome humor to the story. I also loved the cop, Layla Lopez, I hope she might get her story. Maybe with Ben? But there were some issues with it. If Eric and Piper just had an adult conversation, a lot of misconceptions could have been cleared up immediately, so that was frustrating. And there were some moments that contradicted themselves, like where Piper is saying how she wants to stay with Eric since he is in danger, but then a few pages later she is telling him she wants to stay away from him for his own safety. Also, (slight spoiler in this next part) if a guy you slept with in college was killed, I’m not sure staying away from the guy you were just sleeping with is going to make a difference. So that just came across as a bit silly.
So, would I recommend this? I would. It isn’t the best romantic suspense out there, in fact it isn’t even Eden’s best, but it is still enjoyable, and I am definitely going to continue on with this series. Like I said earlier, hoping Ben and Layla get their story and Layla can get some justice for her sister.
