The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ would take the slums out of people, and then they would take themselves out of the slums.
The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature.

Gina OVERPROTECTED REVIEW:

Where do I even begin? Overprotected is an AMAZING book to put into simple words. The style of Jennifer Laurens writing is so easy to connect with and is very raw. All the emotion and conflict capture you and keep you until the very end.

Overprotected is about a girl named Ashlyn, Her daddy is a very well known lawyer and is very rich. Ashlyn was kidnapped by her nanny when she was 5 years old and ever since then daddy hasnt let ashlyn out of his sight without protection. Ashlyn is a 17 year old girl growing up in the upper east side of NYC. She wants to experience life without a bodyguard everywhere, to see and experience what love feels like other than reading about them in her romance novels. Her bodyguard Stewart is fired after 3 years of working for her father because he admits he is in love with ashlyn. Daddy doesnt want his little princess to ever leave him and any sight of love between her daughter and a guy ends very quickly. Then comes Colin. Colin is your typical very sexy guy that you actually never see on the streets but always read about lol. Him and ashlyn were neighbors when they were kids and colin was always very mean to her. She hates colin and is affraid of him. Daddy knows this and guess who becomes the new body guard? Yup you guessed it, Colin.

So now befor I reveal anything else just know this story doesnt end as you may think and the relationship between Colin and Ashlyn is so beautifully crafted. This is a MUST READ people! No dought about it. So go to amazon or any sight that sells books and pre-order this book. This is a must read by Jennifer Laurens! This is her BEST book yet!
