Protecting Her

By Kira Blakely

Rich and handsome playboy, Finn Tremaine, finds himself driving into blizzard conditions on a bet from his friends.  While on his trip he notices a hunting shack on fire that had footprints going in, but none coming out.  He parks his car and runs to the shack to find a beautiful petite woman inside, unconscious.  He takes her back to his car to discover a huge bruise on the back of her head and to find out that she has amnesia.  He quickly warms up to his role as Elspeth’s protector and tries to discover whatever he can about her, but he wouldn’t be too upset if she never recovered her memories.

Wow, it’s been quite a while since I’ve read a book I disliked this much.  It started out pretty badly.  Finn saves Elspeth’s life to then take advantage of her in the backseat of his Escalade.  He then skips taking her to a local hospital to instead take her back to Chicago with him and hordes her away in his own building.  I had hoped the book would improve from there, but it never really did.

And, the stuff that happened when Finn left his lake house to go back to work didn’t make a lot of sense to me and happened way too quickly for me to follow completely.  It was also pretty unbelievable that when Elspeth disappeared he couldn’t find her for over a year, but was able to find her mother later on as a surprise.

I also found it strange that at the end of the last chapter it says ‘the end’ but then goes into a rather lengthy epilogue.

There were several other stories included in this ebook as bonus material, but this story was so bad, I couldn’t bring myself to read them.
