My name is Lyndley, or Sarah I suppose, depending on who you ask. My once amazing dream of a life had all been taken away from me one tragic night. A night that I wouldn’t soon forget. I knew my job was a dangerous one, but it never crossed my mind that one day it could all just disappear right before my eyes.

Now I was trapped in a never-ending nightmare and living a life

Where do I start? I have been trying to figure out this review for the past week. Words are failing me.

SAY WHAT?

Yeah I know. It doesn't happen often. But with my review for Protecting Lyndley, I want it to be prefect because I loved this book.

I love sex in books. I love hot, dirty, every page you turn there is a scene that makes your panties melt. But you know what, sometimes I want to read a book that has a story, that has writing so amazing that you have to know what will happen and you just

Disappointing

Lindley isn't intelligent, she's willfully pig-headed and behaves stupidly. Ky's a poor drunk if he gets so soused on a couple of beers and I cannot see the Marshal service hiring or retaining someone like him. Witness protection doesn't take people and put them in high profile jobs, I don't think. Bank VP? Store owner? Not likely. Lyndley must have amazing recuperative abilities to recover from bullet wounds so rapidly. One more thing, the word "revelry" is not the same as "reverie

Loved the book. There was just the right amount of suspense, drama and emotions wrapped up in a beautiful book. I loved how Lyndley and Ky "worked" together. She was in wittness protection and he was a Marshal who protected her. He tried to do everything in his powers to make her feel save. But not everything goes as planned. Lots and lots of twists and turns in this book, that makes you turn page after page, just so you find out what happens next.

Can`t wait to read the next book in this series!

This should have been a good book. But it just wasn't. I rolled my eyes constantly. The main characters were rude to everyone all the time. The plot should have worked, but there was just entirely too much in this one book. It's like the author had a list of ideas for books and put them all in this one. It was just too much and was completely far fetched. I didn't like either of the main characters. There were spelling & grammatical errors throughout the book. It just didn't work...none of i ...more

I am hooked on this new series by Amanda Bennett. I can not wait until the next book in the series.

Lyndley and Ky are smoking hot together. Thrown together in an unusual situation, Ky and Lyndley must figure out what they have is real or just part of the circumstances sounding their life on the run.

An absolute page turner for me! Highly recommend if you are looking for some adventure with love.

Protecting Lyndley

We are huge fans of Amanda Bennett's writing and this book did not disappoint. Told in dual POV we are taken on a journey of two strangers thrown together.

Lyndley is working on the notorious Nelson's Brothers case. Every person involved in the case was assigned a Detective to watch over them. Lyndley and her best friend Reese had been working late one night when tragedy struck. In a few short hours Lyndley's life had changed, her life as she knows it is gone, done, finished.

I was super excited to read this book … It was my first Amanda Bennett read and after meeting her at a book signing and falling in love with her sweetness I was anxious to explore her work.

Because of her job, Lyndley Caverly winds up the target of some very bad people. She goes into witness protection where she is in the care of US Marshall Ky Wakely. There is an immediate attraction but Ky resists the pull he feels for her because it is, afterall, his job to protect her. Well, he lasts for abou

Boy oh boy did I enjoy this book. Amanda my love you have done it again. There was not a slow start to this book, Amanda threw us in the cross fire and just went with it. I loved it.

Lyndley or Sarah what ever you want to call her watched a horrible scene unfold right in front of her, thanks to her lovely new job. She is immediately put into protective custody with the U.S Marshalls. As much as she wants to fight it, she knows that she needs to be safe and Ky is her best bet.

Ky has had his heart

Lyndley was just a lawyer working one of the biggest cases she'll ever get, taking down the Nelson brothers. The Nelson brothers are the two biggest crime lords of Chicago so just taking on the case was a big possibly lifethreatening deal. She soon found out that she'd be leaving her family and friends behind by faking her death in the hope of keeping her life safe. Little did she know her life may never be safe while the two men she was trying to take down w

Protecting Lyndley is a story about putting your feelings on the back burner to protect the one that means the most to you, but there’s one big problem. You’re not suppose to fall for the one you’re protecting.

Lyndley is a young lady who has witnessed a horrific event due to her current case she is working. When this happens she is forced to leave behind everyone that is important to her, lead them to believe that she is dead, and have a husband who is a total prick.

Ky has been dealt a rough set

3.5 Stars

This is the first book that I’ve read from Amanda Bennett and overall I thought it was a good story. Lyndley (Sarah) is a witness in protective custody and Ky is her handler. I have a high tolerance for suspension of disbelief. I’m able to say ‘yep, that’s far fetched, but works in the story’ and that’s exactly what parts of this book screamed. There are some over the top situations and some aren’t entirely believable, but they add to the back story for the characters.

Protecting Lyndley was a sweet, romantic read. It had quite a few twists and turns that left you in suspense and wanting to know what was going to happen.

Watching your best friend get murdered in front of you and then leaving your life without any good-byes would be extremely hard for anyone. The emotions one would feel would run the gamut and Lyndley wasn’t any different. Through fear, she learned to trust and eventually love.

My only complaint was that I didn’t feel like the relationship betw

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

There is a carefully thought out story in this book - but in places it seems too far fetched. Although I liked the differing povs, and the back story that came out, I found the use of language strange in places. It may be because I am not from the USA.

I will be interested to watch this author's progress with this series.

This didn't work for me at all. I didn't really like tha characters, they were rude. And as far as I'm aware the U.S. Marshals don't actively hire alcoholics or people without an ounce of professionalism like Ky. I also found the writing style to be rather jarring. The ideas behind the story were interesting ones and COULD have worked if I had been able to appreciate the characters more, but leads who spend all their time whining about how awful their lives are and how they NEVER whine just do n ...more

I have been a big fan of Amanda Bennett books since the beautiful series. I love how she gets you hooked on the book from the first few chapters. I was hooked, I could wait to find out what happen to Lyndley. No spoilers but a really great story.

This is easily a 3.5 STAR. I really do get involved when there is so much on the line. This story wasn't overly dramatic, it wasn't an easy love, and not all ends were tied up, leaving many possibilities for the future.
