His to Protect (Fireside #2) by Stacey Lynn

ebook, 225 pages
Expected publication: July 12th 2016 by Loveswept

A warm home for broken hearts, the Fireside Grill serves up hope and healing in equal measure. Stacey Lynn’s sensual, deeply emotional series heats up as a jaded restaurateur falls hard for a woman who’s hiding from a damaged past.

Declan James lost his last ounce of trust the day his wife walked out the door, leaving him to save the restaurant they built together. Throwing himself into his work, Declan swears off women—or at least, women who expect him to stick around in the morning. But when he discovers a skittish beauty scrounging through the Fireside’s trash to feed her dog, Declan offers her a job and a place to rest her head. There’s just something about her that awakens his protective side. And soon, not even that mangy mutt can stop Declan from caring for her.

After one too many trips to the ER, Trina Wilson finally gathered the courage to leave her husband, taking only her car and hyperactive boxer. Unfortunately, life on the run proves harder than she anticipated—until Declan takes a leap of faith on her. But even as Trina starts to see beyond his gruff exterior, she can’t relax, even for a moment. Not with her husband still tracking her down. What Trina doesn’t know is that in Declan, she has a powerful ally—and, if she would only follow her heart, a devoted lover.

My Thoughts…

His to Protect is the second book in this series.   I could not wait to read Declan and Trina’s story.    I liked that the characters from the first book reappear in the second yet if you didn’t read the first you can still enjoy every word of the second.  

The second book is a more common story, I felt like I had read in before in a book by a different author.    Stacey Lynn took this storyline and added her twists, turns, and love into the story and made in 100 times better than any others I had read.    The two points of view really added to the story.  I liked that I could read Declan’s side and then read Trina’s take on the same happenings.     This dual POV added so much to the story.  

I enjoyed how respective Declan is of Trina.   He could push it with her and she would have probably let him but he lets her take the lead.   I felt like this made Trina show her strength and help her learn to say what she wants and stand on her own.      I also enjoyed how Trina let Declan take the lead when he needed to so that she could stay safe or just enjoy what was going on.   This made Declan a manly man and not just a pushover for a beautiful woman.   

Stacy Lynn is a great author and this is a great series.    Check it out.
