Book Review: Protecting Lily by Jenika Snow

Goodreads Synopsis:

I’ve always considered myself the one who would never settle down, but that wasn’t because I don’t want to. I’ve been in love for years, with Lily, the one woman I’m not good enough for.

Then again, Slade “Cutter” Cutsinger, the man we both look up to, a man who has been a parental figure to Lily since her father died, is fiercely protective of her. I don’t want to cross any lines, especially when he’s an important part of my life as well.

I want Lily too much to ignore how I feel, to pretend that I can stay away.

There has only ever been one person I’ve loved, but I know I can never have him. Our paths have never crossed romantically, and I’m too afraid to admit how I feel. I’m not a little girl anymore. I know what I want in life, and I don’t want to ignore it anymore.

I want to be Brock’s until it consumes me, no matter how dangerous it may be.

When an enemy from my past resurfaces and threatens the one person I love, it’s up to me to protect Lily. We’re trapped in a cabin and isolated from the world until the threat is handled. I know that I won’t be able to keep my self-control restrained with her around.

It’s time I man up and finally tell Lily that’s she’s always been mine.

Warning: This is a short but sexy romantic suspense story that is based in Susan Stoker’s Special Forces: Operation Alpha Kindle World. If you like your heroes over-the-top alpha with eyes for only one woman, hold on tight because you’re in for one wild ride.

Chick and Brain Rating 5 out of 5

This is Jenika Snow at her finest! I know have said it before in recent reviews but I will say it again I’m completely burnt out on the billionaire alphas and their virgins. Finally having a story about a military man and a woman with a backbone was a great change of pace! Add some of that good old fashion smutty hotness we can always count on from Snow and we had the prefect novella in the making.

Brock is a Navy Seal. He has been in love with Lily for a long time now, but the fear of someone from his Seal life coming to harm her has him scared to claim the one thing he wants in his life. However when his past comes back to haunt him by threatening the woman he loves Brock will stop at nothing to ensure she is safe and sound.

Lily has loved Brock for as long as she can remember. Having a father who was a Seal as well she knows the dangers of being the significant other of another Seal and doesn’t care, she wishes more than anything that Brock will see her as someone other than a little girl. So when she is told that her life is in danger the only person she could imagine being there to protect her is Brock.

Getting these two into the same small confined space means that we are bound to see fireworks, but when the bad man comes knocking is the hero going to able to protect his lady-love from certain death? Or will he be the one that need to be saved.
