It's not going to be nice, and it's not going to be sweet. If you want romance, you've got the wrong fucking guy.

I've been waiting impatiently for Alexis to get her book ever since I finished Falling for His Best Friend. I really wanted that HEA for her. It broke my heart knowing what the two Yeung sisters have been through, but Alexis in particular. Losing their mother to cancer, having the same cancer looming all of them and Alexis paid the ultimate prize with her choice. Ev

I really enjoyed His Lover to Protect, the third book in Katee Robert’s Out of Uniform series see’s Alexis Yeung, take a little trip around Europe. Having featured in the previous book in the series, I already knew a little about her, and the reasons for her leaving the US for Europe without a word to her family and friends.

I have to admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of Alexis or her behaviour in Falling for His Best Friend, so I was interested to see how Katee

Katee Robert has been one of those authors that I instantly gravitate towards since she has a way of bewitching her readers. I always find myself getting entangled with her sexy, steamy and yet beautiful emotional stories. And in her newest release His Lover to Protect , I found myself devouring this sweet, sexy, yet touching story in one sitting.


If you have read the previous book, Falling for His Best Friend, Alexis Yeung's story was one that I couldn't wait to read since
We met Alexis in Falling for His Best Friend and I've been desperate to see her get a happily ever after ever since. She has been through so much having to face cancer and come to terms with no longer being able to have children of her own, throw in the treatment she received from her ex and the way her grandfather calls her a failure it's no wonder she has had enough. She is thrilled that Avery is happy but watching her sister's pregnancy is just too much for her and she decides to head off to ...more

I don't give out my 5 star reviews too often anymore, but His Lover to Protect is going down as one of my favorite Brazens. I absolutely loved the emotional depth that Robert brought to this novel. Sure, it's sexy as all get out, but Luke and Alexis are dealing with some very real and crippling issues that will really make your heart ache for both of them.

His Lover to Protect by Katee Robert is the third book of her Out of Uniform series. Not to worry it can be read as a stand-alone. Katee Robert delivers a smokin' hot read. Two people who have survived life threatening circumstances are trying to figure out what to do now.

Alexis Yeung is a cancer survivor she lived through the same horrible disease that killed her mother. But Alexis doesn't feel whole anymore; the doctors had to perform a hysterectomy and since then her fiance left he

I've enjoyed the previous books in Katee Roberts Out of Uniform series and whilst this isn't my favourite, it's a quick read with emotion and, as is the norm, plenty of sexy-time. With a couple who each have emotional baggage and are handling it the best they can, His Lover to Protect sees Alexis Yeung flee to Europe with no idea her family has tasked former para-rescuer, Luke Jackson with keeping an incognito eye on her.

My Review:
The premise on this one is interesting.

Alexis has had some really hard years, but it comes to a head when her sister becomes pregnant...not that that is a bad thing, but it just points out to Alexis that maybe her life isn't all that she'd hoped or dreamed. She drops everything to go on an impromptu European tour.

Luke has had his own troubles the last few years after an IED blew him up a little over a year ago. Like Alexis, he's a little broken and a lot scarred on the inside and out

3.5 stars.

This was a fun read, although I wanted to kick Luke several times, lol.

Here we had Luke and Alexis. She was traveling through Europe, sorting some personal issues; and Luke was the guy with the task of following her and taking care of her… from afar. Because that was the thing, Alexis was not supposed to know he was there.

Well, things didn’t turn out that way, lol.

Anyway, like I said before, I wanted to kick Luke so many times, the guy was such an ass. I could see why he was like that

His Lover To Protect is a nice addition to the Out Of Uniform series and focuses on Alexis Yeung and Luke Jackson.

Luke, tasked with watching over his friends little sister while she traverses Europe, is having a hard time keeping up. Definitely not something a former pararescuer would ever admit to… and once he gets to know Alexis his job of keeping her safe isn’t really the issue anymore, it’s keeping his identity a secret and fighting the connection between them.

Luke Jackson has never met a challenge he couldn’t take until now… he’s playing a game of cat and mouse across Europe that always ends with him and Alexis tangled up in the sheets in this gripping romance.

After her life goes horribly wrong, Alexis Young flees to Europe determined to face the world on her own terms and the reader can’t help but get drawn into the story as Alexis and Luke get more than they hoped for. The attraction between Alexis and Luke sizzles with intense heat from every page

We first met both Alexis and Luke in Katee Robert's second Out of Uniform book, Falling For His Best Friend. They were in the periphery as Alexis' sister Avery and Luke's friend Drew fell in love. And, it was impossible not to want the same happy ending for Alexis since she and her sister had gone through so much loss and heartache. The best part about His Lover to Protect is Alexis' ongoing search for that HEA. Oh, and an epic road trip.

From the first chapter to the last His Lover to Protect by Katee Robert was intense and sexy with complex characters who despite the situation that brought them together find in each other exactly what they need. I very much enjoyed this installment in the Out of Uniform series.

His Lover to Protect by Katee Robert is a steamy, fast paced, unexpected romance. Alexis is hurting from what life has thrown at her and when she decides to take off for Europe sending only a text message to her sister, her sister and brother in law decide to send someone to watch over Alexis. Luke is only there to make sure Alexis is safe. He's not happy about it, he has enough going on in his life. Hurt physically and emotionally, he does not want to be trailing around Europe following Alexis, ...more

His Lover to Protect, the third book in Katee Robert’s Out of Uniform series, is a standalone read. However, readers of the series have been waiting for Alexis Yeung’s story to be told. After losing everything she ever wanted, her ability to have children, her fiance, and the respect of her grandparents, Alexis is broken. Watching her sister Avery have everything Alexis has wanted is too much to bare. In a spur of the moment decision, she packs up and heads to Europe fo

I received an eARC of the book via Entangled through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

To be honest, I love Entangled titles – their romances do always pack an extra zing to get my interest flowing and I almost always finish their books in one sitting and this book was no exception to the rule.

This has been a great series for Katee Robert, and I was looking forward to Alexis Yeung’s turn, given we’d met her in her sister’s story; Falling for His Best Friend (#2 in this series)

Alexis had been dealt a major bad hand, and was still coming to terms with the fallout. She decides that travel will help her work things through, and slips away in the dead of night, leaving her distraught sister, Ave

His Lover to Protect by Katee Robert was a good solid read for me. This is the third in her Out of Uniform series and it showcased Alexis, Avery’s sister from Falling for His Best Friend.

When Alexis takes off for Europe on her own to try to work through some issues, her sister and their friends send an ex-military pararescuer after her to make sure she doesn’t get into any trouble. Luke attempts to stay on the down low, but Alexis notices him following her and confronts him about it. Luke is not

I was really looking forward to reading Alexis' story. At the end of the last book, Falling For His Best Friend, Alexis had left the country when her sister's pregnancy had been the last straw for her fragile mental state. I could understand this. Alexis had fought, and won, against cancer, but she will never be able to have a biological child. She really needed to get away and find some peace.

Her sister and her husband, and his brother, were worried about her so they sent a "babysitter" after h

I was super excited to read Alexis's story, as we got to know her a little bit in the previous book and she definitely had one hell of a story to tell.

In this one, we find her back packing her way through Europe in a bid to feel closer to her mother as well as come to terms with all that has happened in her life. She not only beat cancer, but by beating it, it took away the possibility of her ever having any kids. Add to that, the fact h

I am new to Katee Robert and the Out of Uniform series but I must say that I did enjoy this book.  Alexis is running from her demons and taking a long vacation in Europe. Her family is worried enough about her that her brother-in-law has Luke Jackson (a fellow pararescuer) tail her without her knowledge. Luke helps out his friend by following Alexis and making sure she is safe. Of course Luke and Alexis end up sharing some very steamy nights together without her knowing who he really is.

Katee Robert is a guilty pleasure of mine, I haven't read a book of hers that I haven't enjoyed. His Lover to Protect is a great addition to the Out of Uniform series.

The book focuses on Alexis Yeung and Luke Jackson. We have previously met Alexis in the second book of this series, Falling for His Best Friend (FFHBF), she is the elder sister of Avery. If you have already read FFHBF you'll know that Avery
I enjoyed this book and the unique plot of Luke and Alexis backpacking through Europe. Luke was hired by Ryan and his family to make sure Alexis was safe while traveling. Alexis needs this trip to get her life back together. Neither Luke or Alexis thought they would heal one another while on this new and beautiful adventure. They both have emotional and physical scars. This brings them both together and they begin to understand one another better.

I really liked how sassy Alexis was and I loved

Alexis Yeung's life seems worthless at this point. The cancer that has left her barren also caused a broken engagement and half a family that holds her responsible for being unable to bear children. So she has to "runaway" on a soul searching journey of self discovery, to find purpose to her life once again.

Former para-rescuer and loner, Luke Jackson is tailing her undercover, at the behest of her sister and his friend. While keeping an eye on her, they strike up and "un"easy friendship that has
