I don’t do love. Hearts, flowers, dates, girlfriends, it’s all pointless. Why tie yourself down to one person when you can have a different one every night? Sure there have been a few that have intrigued me but none ever made me think about hanging around. No one ever haunted my thoughts after I left.

Until Her.

I just wanted one night of freedom. A chance to live without pr

There is ones real reason I will always read an Alexis Noelle book and that is because even though her books are on the shorter side and are quick reads, they surely do pack a punch!!! Protecting Her was no different.

Protecting Her gets right to the point in the first chapter and it keeps you going all the way through. This story was filled with action, mystery, suspense, laughter, and romance. I wil

Amazing read! This is a new author to me and I was thoroughly impressed with this sexy, sweet, and suspenseful standalone. This book grabbed me from the beginning and devoured me whole by the end. This book was a sexy romance that was edgy and super intense at times.

This is Samantha and Hunter's story. Samantha has it all . . . well not really. She is a sexy and seductive pop star by profession but that is not her. Living under her mother's rule, she is alone and not happy. She wants to

Wow. Oh my God. The beginning of this book just dove into the story right off the bat, which I really appreciated and loved. Sometimes, it's the best way to catch your readers' attention and keep the interest of the audience. And for me, it really worked. I found it hard to stop after I started. It won't drag you through boring introductions or narratives.—you just jump right into the lives of Samantha Baker & Hunter Stone. Oh! And since the start of this one dives right into the story, a couple ...more

I almost gave up on this book.

Recently, I decided that it's ok to give a book a DNF rating. I try hard to at least skim a book I don't like to find something to write about. Maybe the plot was good, just not written how I'd like. Maybe the characters were fairly rounded, I just couldn't connect with them. Just because I don't like a book doesn't mean I can't find something that somebody somewhere would like.

Fantastic read. I really need to read more of this authors books as the ones I've read so far have been brilliant.

Hunter is a one night stand kinda man. He doesn't want to love anyone so he refuses to get close to anyone. Then Sam enters his life. His whole life changes when he meets her.

Two great characters. Although Hunter was portrayed as a twat at the beginning he gradually took a piece of my heart. I was so rooting that Sam would grow a backbone and stand up for herself.

Protecting Her is the story of Hunter and Sam. Hunter's a self-proclaimed asshole who never sleeps with the same woman more than once. Sam is a superstar signer who never lets anyone in. Together, they build a relationship with lots of obstacles along the way. They're both afraid to let someone on because they don't want to get hurt. I loved this story. Alexis Noelle definitely knows how to keep you guessing until the very end. I hated, loathed, despised, Sam's mother, and totally loved, then ha ...more

One of the best books I've read!
I was addicted with this book!
Hunter and Sam are amazing.
At first, I was kind of pissed at Hunter because of the way he treated women but as the story goes, I fell in love with his character.
Because of an unexpected job, Hunter and Sam met again.
As the story goes, things will get interesting and more intriguing as the stalker is worming its way to spook and threatened Sam.
Hunter will do anything to protect her...but will his effort be enough?

Alexis is a new to me author. I picked up this book and Keeping Her at an author event I went too.

If you want something fluffy, heartwarming, sweet and super cute, this is the story for you. I don't want to give away any spoilers so I'll keep this short and sweet.
This story gripped me, I couldn't put it down. Alexis was able to keep me entertained. I laughed out loud, and my heart weeped for the characters. If you're in the mood for a sweet love story, this is the book for you.

"Most people tell me I'm an asshole, and honestly they're right. I have no interest in taking a chick out on a date, pretending like I give a shit what she is talking about and then lying, and saying I'll call her the next day. I would rather go to her place, fuck her good, and leave with no expectations of speaking to her again. If you think about it, I'm doing these chicks a favor by not leading them on."

I have become a huge fan of Alexis Noelle and this book just confirms my devotion – the woman has this writing malarkey nailed!!
Protecting Her is the story of Hunter and Samantha and they while they are the strangest of bedfellows the have more in common that you would originally think.
Hunter is hired by Samantha’s mother – what as I her you say – well I think the title of the book really should have you barking up the right tree – he is her bodyguard.

I love this author and I love this story. I didn't even send any hate e-mail to her during or after reading this !! She almost went easy on us !! Just when I got comfy and was blissfully happy with how things were going BOOM out of nowhere we get slammed with a twist and a gut wrenching event. There was a topic in this story that is sadly such a real life issue it was great to see an author tackle the issue and have the character come out on top of it.

OMG! I so love Alexis Noelle and her books! I’ve not read one that’s bad! This series is so awesome!!!!

Keeping Her is Brian and Julia’s story. It’s soooooo good. Lies, misunderstanding, attempted murder, romance, sadness. It’s really got everything you could want in one perfect story.

Protecting Her….OMG Samantha & Hunter. WOW! This one is explosive! Sam is feisty in her own right but Hunter is a class A jerk! At least at the beginning. Hunter is the perfect one night stand, never the same girl

When I first picked up this book and started to read I thought OMG not another book just about sex. I wondered if I would be able to finish it and give a review. After I got through the first few chapters the author really pulled the story together for me. She even throw in a few surprises that I didn’t see coming.

Hunter has a different girl each night why have just one when you can have almost any you want. He is up front they know the score. They say we are the way we are because of things fr

“Hunter presses himself against me. He grinds into me as he kisses me, his tongue slipping into my mouth, coaxing a moan to slip out of me. I try to lift my hand and reach Hunter, who is standing in front of me, pressed against my legs, but it’s like I’m glued to the wall.”

Hunter and Samantha are two people who would only cross paths in the way they do in this book - he starts working for her. Hunter is hired by Samantha’s mother to be her new bodyguard. They actually have a previous connection that neither of them is ready to admit to each other - or anyone else for that matter.

However, just because their paths wouldn’t have crossed, doesn’t mean that they don’t have plenty in common. They are both scared to open themselves up to anyone because t

Hunter doesn't do love, dates, girlfriends anything that's more than one night. Why tie yourself down to just one girl when you can have a different girl each night? It wasn't until he met her that he wanted more than one night with someone.

Samantha just wanted one night of freedom where no one judged her or pryed into her life. Just one night...
But she met him and he hypnotized her. She got caught up in him and after it felt like the biggest mistake ever. He was cold to me after. I felt cheap

This was a good story. I really liked it. No need to recap you can read the synopsis so I will just jump to it and give you my opinion. So let me start with the 2 main characters. You have Sam, the rock star and Hunter, the self proclaimed asshole. I liked Sam's character and felt almost sorry for her. She was easy to relate to if I was a late teen early 20 something rock star who just wanted to be loved by her mom. Now for Hunter. Yep I hated him at first. He was cocky and arrogant and

This is the first book by Alexis Noelle that I have had the pleasure of reading. I have now added her to my must read list. I was very impressed with this book. I had problems putting it down and read it in one day. It has a little bit of everything in it and will keep you on the edge of your seat for most of the book!

I liked this story very much. It pulled you in immediately and at first you wanted to hate Hunter but he turned out to be the best thing to ever happen to Samantha. Samantha is an aspiring beautiful actress, doing personal appearances, modeling, etc. and because she is famous she needed a body guard. In walks gorgeous, sexy Hunter. Since she wasn't the one to hire him, imagine both their surprise when they both know each other from a one night hook up. The chemistry between them is like firework ...more

Hunter the man that loves them then leaves them never to come back for more. Yeah, until he had no choice but to see his last conquest again and again.
Sam just wanted to be seen as her not the person that everyone else sees and judges she wanted for some one to notice her. What she didn't want was to be used and tossed aside. She thought her little excursion disaster for her freedom and anonymity failure wouldn't haunt her again, until she meets the new body guard.

Protecting Her is my first book by Alexis Noelle, so I had no idea what to expect before diving in. I will say that I had no problem following the story and it was easy to read, as there were no spelling mistakes or anything distracting like that. I also really enjoy the cover, I could see people buying this book based on that alone.

However, I did not like either character. I have no love for Hunter or Sam. Hunter is an a-hole and

Samantha Baker, aka Sam is a well known pop star and Hunter Stone is hired to be her security guard due to the fact that she's being stalked. Much to her surprise and dismay, he also happens to be the guy she just had a one night stand with the night before. Add to the mix that he left her with a "wham, bam, thank you ma'am", and there are sure to be some sparks . Sam is also dealing with a mom/manager from hell. Will Sam ever stand up to her mom?
