The Protective Groom

About the book: Noah Baker is about to meet the toughest woman in Texas—right before he marries her. 
Harley Wilson, of the Texas Wilsons, is being stalked by an unscrupulous creeper who is intent on doing her harm. In order to protect herself, Harley asks Pamela Jones to find her a groom. She needs someone who can hold his own in a firefight and happily sign annulment papers when this nightmare is over. 
Noah Baker thinks he’s hit the jackpot as a Billionaire Marriage Brokers’ groom. The position is the perfect opportunity to move forward and put the past behind him once and for all. However, Noah must dig into his training as a police officer and doing so brings up demons he buried two years ago when he left the force. 
Time runs short for Noah as his list of suspects grows to include an almost fiancé, a twisted cousin, and Harley’s step-brother. With Harley’s father breathing down his neck, Noah finds himself falling for Harley in a way that makes this assignment as personal as—well, marriage. 

My review: I loved that we got to see more of Noah, Paige's brother in The Country Bride, in this book! It's so much fun that there is a Billionaire Marriage Brokers groom and that it's Noah. I grew to love his character in Paige's story. And I love his character even more after reading this one.

Harley Wilson has a stalker and her family determines that it's high time for her to have a husband that can protect her at all hours of the day and night. So her mother calls Pamela at Billionaire Marriage Brokers and Noah and Harley are scheduled to get married the next Saturday. 

I loved the wedding scene. It's really the first time Harley and Noah have met and it's hilariously funny when she slaps him after they've kissed for the first time! I love the way that Noah forgives her and moves on as though nothing has happened. I loved that even though he can tell he's developing feelings for Harley, he tries to keep her at arm's length so that he will be able to protect her any time that he needs to.

This is a cute story, it's romantic, clean and suspenseful. I was really surprised with who the stalker turns out to be in the end! I'm hoping for more Billionaire Marriage Brokers books soon!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
