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.
Protecting Lily combines so many of the things I love: Susan Stoker, hot alpha SEALs, and insta-love! Its a very short story and right to the point, but sometimes, that is exactly what I want! Snow has woven Cutter, Wolf, Cookie, and Dude into her story so I squealed to see some of my favorite SEALs again!
Brock is a SEAL who looks up to Slade “Cutter” because he took him under his wing and kept him out of trouble, then got him into the Navy. But, Brock is also in love with Lily, who is like a daughter to Cutter. So, for years, he kept his feelings to himself. That all changes when a man from Brock’s past resurfaces and threatens Lily.
The story is predictable for sure but I still liked it. Brock and Lily have such love for each other they have avoided so it the relationship didn’t feel overly rushed even though the story was short. In the pages you will get danger, smoking sex, and a happily ever after you can finish in an hour!
Snow’s addition to the Special Forces: Operation Alpha kindle world was exactly what I have come to love about all the books in this series! They are all quick reads with great characters that steam up my kindle and steal my heart.
