His Lover to Protect
He's never met a challenge he couldn't take...
Alexis Yeung did everything right....only to watch everything go horribly, horribly wrong. Broken and angry, Alexis high-tails it to Europe, determined to face the world on her own terms and without consequence. Which includes a mind-blowing night with a sexy, scarre...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more

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 ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
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.
I have to say that while this w ...more
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 ...more

Alexis Yeung has survived things that would have taken a lesser woman down, but she didn’t survive them unscathed. Suffering from more than just a broken engagement, Alexis runs off to Europe to regain her self confidence and take control of her life again. One night with a sexy stranger seems like the perfect way to start too, but unknown to her, the ...more
After losing her ability to have children and watching her ...more
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.
When Alexis Yueng finds out her little sister is pregnant she escapes to Europe to prove to herself she's alive and vibrant and not scared of anything. In her mind it ...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 ...more
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.
Luke Jackson has just been discharged from his job as a Para rescuer due to medical reason (read: bad knee!) when his friend Ryan requests a very huge favour – his sister in law has left home to ...more

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

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 ...more
