3.5stars! hmmm I really enjoyed the romance part of this book. the hero was great! He was sweet and loving! heroine was ok at times and better other times. some things bothered me a bit. I felt like too much was going on in this. Too many different ideas were thrown in where it would make things unbelievable . at times it was like they knew each other but then they really didn't. we didn't get too much history. Also I didnt know who Chase was for a while . lol I thought he w
2.5 stars

This was just an okay read for me. I did like the romance especially how sweet the hero was with the heroine. However there was just too much going on with the rest of the plot and I felt it was a little unbelievable that all these characters had so many horrible things happen in their past. However I would definitely consider reading more from this author.

Protecting His Forever was the first book in the Forever series by LeAnn Ashers.

Kane and Sydney met when Sydney was in trouble and called her brother, Ethan. Ethan and Kane served in the military together. Kane saved the day, literally. It was an insta-love story.

Protecting His Forever was written with a dual POV. From the relationship perspective it was sappy sweet mixed in with a suspenseful plot. I loved that the drama was never about the relationship. There was drama but it was all from exte
This book had potential, the 1st chapter was even great that I wanted to keep reading, but at about 14% I gradually lost patience, and then too many things happened to almost everyone (including h's mother, h's best friend …), and it was just in the 1st half of this book! So I got headache.

This book would be better if it mainly focused on H and h, and her stalker. The secondary characters' past, trauma, or threat just distracted me.
No rating. 30% and I'm SO done with TSTL females, I can't take any more. I'm out.

I really did try to finish this, but it just didn't work out unfortunately. I honestly think that this story had potential, but had poor execution and delivery.

This story started out fine for me. As I got further into the story, that's when issues started coming up. I believe that there were way too many ideas thrown in that I felt the author couldn't decide which plot she wanted to focus on. The story was all over the place to say the least.

Additionally, I think part of why Protecting

Beware of Spoilers!

Star Ratings:
Heroine (Sydney): 3/5 – to be perfectly honest I don’t know how the H put up with her as she was so naïve and stupid
Hero (Kane): 5/5 – he was awesome!
Plot: 3/5
Grovel: none
Cheating: none
HEA: yes – love babies and the epilogue was 15 years later which was great
Triggers: h was attacked and almost raped

Average score: 3.5/5 – stars deducted due to speed/pace and sheer stupidity at times

Best Line: h: “It’s sad when a woman is afraid to eat in front of a man.” I am defi
Sydney never really dated, she saw no need to because she figured when she met the one she would know. While out shopping though she finds herself being attacked and when her brothers best friend Kane rescues her, she knows she has met the one. Kane will do anything to keep Sydney safe from a threat that keeps coming, he is building a life he never had and he knows Sydney is everything he ever dreamed of having.

This was good but it did have a couple head scratching moments that made me wonder. I

My first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. Sydney is attacked in the parking lot of the mall and Kane saves her. Kane pretty much sticks close by her after that, despite what her brother, his good friend says. Quite a bit happens in this book, we get to find out more about her and her brothers dad (which is kinda scary), her best friend that went missing a few years back (also scary) and surprise family members of his. There was a lot going on in this book, it was pretty busy. I reall ...more

Thanks but no thanks !!!
Can’t finish this book ! Maybe the story has some potential but there isn’t one thing developed right !! LeAnn described every event without display any emotion, every chapter goes on from “Month later” to month later ....and other things that I don’t understand and don’t like !

What the hell did I just read? I gave it 2 stars only because I liked the story line and plot but it just wasn't executed well. The writing is very choppy and stilted and I wish there was more dialogue.
There were a lot of things that bothered me. No one in this book worked! Not one person ever went to work. It's mentioned briefly that Sydney is an indie author but no elaboration. The only thing said about Kane is that he's extremely wealthy and owns multiple businesses. That's it. I have no ide

DNF'd around 30%. I'm giving it 3 stars though because it had tons of potential. With a good editor it could be really great. In fact the first chapter was great. I might even give other books by this author in the future a try. This is the authors debut novel. I was going to keep going with the story since I did like what the author was going for but then I got to this part that just rubbed me the wrong way and it pushed me into DNF'ing Here is that part

Wow LeAnn, what a journey. From page 1, I feel in love with Sydney; she experiences something traumatic which introduces her to someone who will change her life.
Kane, that sexy protective alpha man, who is so wonderful, & that man is HOT in the bedroom. He appears to have a fondness for his woman's behind. I loved their banter back and fourth.
I admit, this book is so much more than I expected, you get to experience so much with these characters & you will feel for them. The suspense wa

This was definitely an interesting read with a lot going on within the story, but overall I really liked what I was reading. The two main characters definitely had some serious chemistry, and there was something about them that couldn't be denied. That connection continued throughout the entire book, and I definitely enjoyed getting to experience that.

This book definitely had many twists and turns to it, and along the way I loved getting to know all the different characters. What Kane and Sydney

WOW!!!!! This book is FREAKIN' AMAZING!!!! From the start up to the last, I was hooked on the story and the characters. Sydney and Kane are easy to relate with and love. Their story made me cry and fall in love. Too many interesting and heart felt scenes that makes the story great.

I love Sydney because she's an amazing woman. Kind heart, understanding and will do anything for the people she loves. Also Kane is an amazing guy! Despite he looks big, he's a softy and ver

I loved how it started and went on to be such sweet and so deep love story. I loved that there was no drama between the couple but all the drama came from the villains. I loved how Kane loved Sydney and how much he adored her, protected her. In spite of so much pain in past and what they were facing, I loved that the couple as strong were strong enough to overcome anything. Sydney was an amazing woman who had so much love in her heart.

Wow! This book is a-maz-ing! That's right, three syllables, amazing, lol. Watch your hearts when you read this book, ladies. Kane will steal it away from you and you won't know what hit you. Sydney was so great as well....but I don't sway that way, so Kane was my main attraction. But, seriously, as far as heroines go, Sydney had it all. Feistiness, sexiness, friendliness, loveliness and all the 'nesses' you can think off. This book is Author LeAnn Ashers' first baby and she delivered with a BANG ...more

I loved this book from page one all the way to the end.

Sydney is someone who goes after what she wants, has a heart of gold, is very protective of those she loves and just an all around amazing person.

Kane is an alpha and very protective but hes also a very big softy.

There are twists in this book you wont see coming. Someone is after Sydney and you will never guess who that someone is or why they are after her to begin with. and when you find out... you will be shocked to say the least.

What an incredible story! LeAnn Ashers debut novel is absolutely amazing! I was chosen to read this ahead of release and I can not stop talking about it! Kane and Sydney complete each other. Someone is after Sydney and it is not whom you lead yourself to believe. Kane, oh, Alpha and marshmallow surprise rolled into one *Swoon* Sydney's family is amazing and you will not believe the amount of strength they give and receive from each other.
