I only wanted to protect you…
Luke Garrison is a hometown hero, a member of the National Guard ready to deploy again. He’s strong, sexy, broody. The last thing he’s looking for is a woman to ruin his solitude. When the wildly beautiful Harper stumbles into his life, though, he realizes that she’s the perfect decoy. A fake girlfriend to keep his family off his back until he’s deployed.
So what if kissing her sends his mind to wicked places? He can control himself. Can’t he?
Harper was on her way to starting a new life… again. But something about Luke makes her want to settle down in this small town and make his house a home. When she’s in his arms, she finally knows what it’s like to feel safe. Protected.
One night of sharing a bed turns into something much, much more… and soon Luke can’t keep his mind off Harper’s wide gray eyes or his hands off her luscious curves. He never thought he’d feel this way about a woman again. But he knows that he can’t tell her the truth about his dark past. And she can’t reveal what she’s running from.
At least this isn’t a real relationship. It’s only for a month. It’s only pretend. Until it isn’t…
Another stunner from Lucy Score. I am straight addicted and de finitely couldn’t get enough of Luke and Harper. I love how Lucy always can combine romance, family, suspense and a lot of spice!!
Luke is just what a man of dreams is made of. I love how he’s protective yet kind. He’s hard-working. In the army and a leader. And of course he’s sexy AF. Ugh, just love a man who is slightly broody but still wants to take care of the people he cares about.
I really connected with Harper in this. Not with constantly moving and being a foster kid, however desperately wanting something that always seems out of reach. I love her story and how she’s always looking forward even when a rough patch hits. She’s strong and sure of herself worth and I adore it.
The side characters and family we see also help make this book what it is. And I’m so excited to see more of them in future books. I am a Lucy Score fan for life.
