A sexy and suspenseful new contemporary romance from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake where love and law entwine for a conviction of the heart.
To high-end defense attorney Henry Garrison, Win Hughes is a woman he met during one of the most trying times of his life. She’s soft and warm, and he finds solace in their brief relationship. But Win has a secret. She’s actually Taylor Winston-Hughes—born to one of the wealthiest families in the country, orphaned as a child by a tragic accident. Win moves in the wealthiest circles, but her lavish lifestyle hides her pain.
When her best friend is murdered in the midst of a glittering New York gala, Win’s charged with the crime, and the only person in the world she wants to see is Henry.
Henry is shocked at the true identity of his lover, but he can’t reject the case. This trial could take his new firm into the stratosphere. Still, he’s not getting burned by Win again. And yet every turn brings them closer together.
As the case takes a wild turn and Win’s entire life is upended, she must look to the people she’s closest to in order to find a killer. And Henry must decide between making his case and saving the woman he loves…
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an advance copy of Order of Protection for an honest review.
Order of Protection is another steamy hit!!! The chemistry and suspense is great. I enjoyed that we get the Lawless and Taggart men mentioned in this book. Noah also plays a key part! I am looking forward to more from this new series!
Henry is packing up his grandfathers house to sell it. He knows it isn’t practical to keep it, even though it holds so many amazing memories. He is taking a break on the porch when he sees a gorgeous blonde aka Win, jogging on the beach when she falls. They instantly have an attraction. He loves her curves and easy going personality. She likes that he likes her without expectations.
Both Henry and Win are looking for a break to figure out what to do next with their lives when they stumble upon each other. Henry is an attorney who just got out of a nasty relationship with a celebrity who trashed him in the tabloids. Win is a wealthy orphan who is set to inherit a very powerful company. The thing is she wants to make a name for herself and wants to stay out the press and away from the pressure that was on her from the fame she had from her reality show.
When their months together are over and Win is arrested Henry will be the one she needs the most. The problem is neither of them know the other is in New York or that it will be Henry that can save her and why he would not want to date a celebrity.
With both of them keeping secrets will they be able to move past them? Will Henry help Win and let her back into his heart? You have to read to find out!
Order of Protection is a fast-paced, hot, emotional read. The friends played such a pivotal role in understanding how Win’s life has been and her support system has been! It really is so important, the eating disorder and body image, the struggle that people have with this and how hard it is to overcome and a constant struggle. I would definitely recommend and I am giving it 4 out 5 stars.
