She was off-limits.
Eric Wilde has always known that Piper Lane isn’t for him. She is his younger brother’s best friend…and probably more. But that hasn’t stopped Eric from wanting her, from longing for the one woman that he can’t have. Sure, he’s rich, successful—he’s built a security empire, and he’s got the world at his feet. Only he doesn’t have her.
He is the one man she needs the most.
Free-spirited Piper Lane has always considered Eric to be the enemy. He’s seemed to resent her, and the guy just flat-out makes her nervous. Every time she’s around him, she winds up doing something horribly embarrassing. But, this time…everything has changed. This time, he’s the one man she needs the most.
Something is stalking Piper.
A stranger has broken into Piper’s home twice, and she feels like someone is following her. Watching her every move. She needs a professional to help her—so enter Eric Wilde. He promises her protection, he promises to put his best investigators on her case, and he even moves her into his house. Suddenly, the guy who has always been the villain in her life…he’s now playing the role of hero.
Everything will change as the danger mounts.
And maybe Eric isn’t so bad, after all. The more time that Piper spends with him, the more she realizes that her feelings for Eric are far more complicated that she ever imagined. Desire explodes between them even as the danger deepens around her. Someone in the dark is targeting Piper, and he is determined that if he can’t possess her…then he will destroy her.
PROTECTING PIPER…a sizzling new romance from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden.
Good read for the day, exciting and a cute ending.55
I don’t typically leave reviews, good or bad, and I read a LOT. But I couldn’t let this one go. The story itself is fine. Pretty easy to figure out. Finished it in less than a day. But my issue was with the language the author used. Repeated phrases and words. It got super annoying. I’m from the south, even lived in the southeast for a while. I’ve never met a single person who uses the word ‘fellow’ five times in one conversation. It felt like the author was trying to use some combination of old English/southern/British slang? Throw in a few solid curse words and you’ve got the language down. I’m not sure where all the five star reviews came from but definitely not from this girl!25
Worth the money!55
Couldn’t put it down, great book :)55
Sex and danger, romantic and sweet! Great characters and good storyline. You will enjoy!55
i loved this book ! if took me two days too finish it and i was forcing myself to close out the app, the plot twists and turns were amazing, i’d definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a complicating love story !!’55
I don’t know how to not sound mean, but this book was not as good as the reviews led me to believe. I didn’t feel any connections between the lead characters, he seemed to growl every few pages, and she was constantly hurrying to keep up, even though he’s holding her hand. Is he dragging her along? And he’s in security, but grilling her on her sex life because he wants to know, less about potential suspects. And everyone wanted her for themselves? I thought it was a bit too much like There’s Something About Mary, without any humor. I will say the plot was a good idea, but there’s more that could’ve made the story better. I just started skipping pages to find out who the killer was.25
Same book as Mine to take! Names and very few details were changed . What a Rip Off.25
The characters had a charisma together and I love the plot. Having an intriguing and exciting plot is a must have for me and this did not disappoint. I look forward to reading more of this series.55
