Rules of Protection by Alison Bliss

Title: Rules of Protection
Release Date: August 26, 2014
Imprint: Select

Some rules are meant to be broken...

It’s rule breaker Emily Foster's birthday, and like everyone at The Jungle Room, she just wants to get some action. Unfortunately, she stumbles on the wrong kind, witnessing a mob hit. To protect her, she’s entered into the Witness Protection Program with by-the-book Special Agent Jake Ward as her chaperone.

When the location of their safe house is compromised, Jake stashes Emily deep in the Texas backwoods. The city-girl might be safe from the Mafia, but she has to contend with a psychotic rooster, a narcoleptic dog, crazy cowboys, and the danger of losing her heart to the one man she can’t have.

Jake's as hot as he is infuriating, and she can't help but push all his buttons to loosen him up. Their mutual, sizzling sexual attraction poses a dilemma: Jake's determined to keep her safe and out of the wrong hands; she's determined to get into the right ones—his.

My Review:
I couldn't put this book down! Emily has such horrible luck and the one thing she was looking for on her birthday was a good time. Instead she becomes a target for the mob. Emily hasn't had a great life after her parents were killed and she has promised herself she won't say goodbye to anyone else. She's opinionated, tough, argumentative, and stubborn. She's perfect for Jake.

Jake is with the FBI and becomes involved when Emily is in danger. He takes her to his family's home to hide her from those who are trying to kill her. He is over protective and bossy, but justifies it as part of keeping Emily safe. He's overbearing and argumentative but he can't deny his intense attraction to Emily, though he wants to follow the rules.

These two are explosive together. Emily comes off as sassy and untrusting, but it's only her way of protecting herself. When things get tough, we see who really is protective and who can keep it together. I LOVED this book! I will probably read it again because I'm sure I missed some details. Wonderful suspense and sexual tension. 5 out of 5!

About the Author
As the youngest of five girls, Alison Bliss has never turned down a challenge...or been called by the right name. Her writing career may have started out as a dare by one of her sisters, but Alison hasn't put her pen down since.
She grew up on a small island off the Texas Gulf Coast, where most of her childhood vacations consisted of camping or hunting trips to the deer lease. Although she'll always be a Texan at heart, Alison currently resides in the Midwest with her Iowa farm-boy husband and their two sons. With so much testosterone in her home, it's no wonder she writes "girl books."
She's an animal lover, a closet video game enthusiast, and believes the best way to know if someone is your soul mate is by canoeing with them because if you both make it back alive, it's obviously meant to be. Alison's an avid romance reader who enjoys penning the type of books she loves to read most: fun, steamy love stories with heart, heat, laughter, and usually a cowboy or two. As she calls it, "Romance...with a sense of humor."
