Protect Me, the 6th book in The Donovan Family series and the 3rd one I have read was pretty good but I liked the other two better. I felt this book was much slower then the other two books I read and there wasn't as much action. Although I never got bored I wish it would have flowed a little bit better. I like Mia a lot. Finn on the other hand didn't really wow me. He was just there. I guess standing next to yummy twin cops with sexy, protective, alpha personalities
She was given an offer she couldn’t refuse, not if she wanted to make detective on the Chicago police force. At first it seemed like babysitting, being an undercover protector of a fluffy, no-substance movie star, but Mia knows she is a capable officer, in spite of what her older brothers, of the Donovan family of law enforcement officers think. What the beautiful and very competent Mia found was Finn, a down-to-earth, caring hunk of gorgeousness whose stardom has been tarnished by an old scanda ...more

PROTECT ME checks off the boxes on all my favorite things when it comes to romance: suspense, law enforcement, engaging characters and strong family connections. Ms. Watson is a new-to-me author, but I enjoyed this book and her writing so much that I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.

Police Officer Mia Donovan is the baby of the family and only girl with four older brothers, all in the business of law enforcement and is determined to get her detective's badge as soon as possible

Wow! This may be my favorite book so far in the series! This is Mia Donovan's-the feisty little sister-story. Each book brings us wonderful character development and a deeper look at each lead. For some reason, this one grabbed me and wouldn't let go. I actually called in late to work so I could keep reading.

Mia is assigned to protect actor Finn O'Rourke from a stalker while he is in Chicago for work. She isn't happy about this and tries her best to keep her feelings all above board. The unrave

I don't read too many cop books, but at the hint of a female officer posing as a bodyguard, posing as a girlfriend... I couldn't resist!

Margaret kept me on my toes throughout the entire book. I would keep guessing who the stalker would be. At first glance, I did think it was kind of predictable; however, that is not the case! I had to know what happened next! Protect Me is extremely well written, and the characters are complex. Even for an actor

Mia and Finn are something else! Shockingly enough,

This is my first romance book away from Nora Roberts and Janet Evanovich and I have to say that Ms. Watson is an excellent writer. Without having to read the first five books in this series you immediately are brought up to date with the Donovan clan.

The main character of this book is Mia Donovan, the youngest of the Donovan kids. Mia is assigned to the protective duty to Finn O’Rourke, she doesn’t really want to do this, but her captain

Mia wants to make Detective and when a protection job is dangled in front of her, even one she really isn't interested in, she'll accept it in order to better her chances. She may be the baby Donovan sister, but she's just as good as her brothers and she wants to prove it, if to nobody else except herself. She spunky, determined, and quite feisty.

I've made it pretty clear that I'm a "judge a book by its cover" type of person. This one wouldn't have garnered a second glance from me based on its cover alone. Instead, I read the description of this one before I ever saw the cover... I was intrigued. Boy, am I glad I read this! It was such a good book!

Protect Me has it all. Solid, sharp storytelling, dynamic, believable characters, sexy romance, thrilling plot, and a close knit family you immediately want to get to know.

Mia Donovan and Finn O'Rourke shine as this book's hero and heroine. Mia is a tough, determined police officer who doesn't let the badge hide her soft femininity, letting the reader know you don't have to sacrifice one for the other. Finn is billed as a typical Hollywood actor, but what Mia finds instead is a man who do

This was the first book by Margaret Watson I have read and I enjoyed it very much!! This book is for mature readers only due to graphic sex scenes. This book is getting a strong 5 stars from me!

In Protect Me, actor Finn O'Rourke needs protection from a stalker. Officer Mia Donovan is assigned to his case. At first she seems skeptical of him, believing the rumors that his ex-girlfriend spread that she caught him cheating. As she spends more time with him and gets to know him, she begins to doubt the rumors and start to see Finn for the person he is.

Both Mia and Finn were great characters. On one hand Mia is sweet and surrounded by people who love her, and on the other hand she's hard an

Besides reading, one of my favorite things to do is watch crime shows. From NCIS to Criminal Minds and everything in-between, I watch it all. So, when this books description offered romance and some cool crime action, I knew that I'd like it!

I absolutely loved both Finn and Mia! They have this banter that is extremely entertaining. They actually remind me a lot of Castle and Beckett from one of my all time favorite shows, Ca

Protect Me (The Donovan Family, #6) by Margaret Watson I was given an ARC of this book and was asked to give an honest evaluation. I am happy and honored to do so.

I had read one of the Donovan brother's stories awhile back, and after reading Protect Me, Mia Donovan's story, I am going to go back and read the whole series. I really liked the characters and plot of this book. In particular, I liked the Donovan family theme and the relationships among the brothers and sisters and their mates.

The thing about ebooks is that you never know when the end is coming. I didn't want this one to end - I want more Mia and Finn!

Mia is offered a protection detail on one of the worlds most famous actors as he is being stalked. His godfather is also the superintendent of Police so he has some pull with getting the right protection for his family. Mia is happy to oblige because it'll look good on her record, it's only for 3 weeks, and she wants to make detective so this should help.

Mia is asked to take a job protecting the Police Superintendent's Godson from a stalker. She may have taken the job to help her reach detective by 27 like her brothers who are in law enforcement.

Someone is stalking a movie star and the Superintendent of Police in Chicago has decided to assign a body guard 24/7 for the period of time Finn O’Rourke will be in town. Mia Donovan has mixed feelings about taking the job but for career reasons she agrees and then settles in to do the job to the best of her ability. Neither Finn nor Mia expect the immediate intense chemistry and with a three week limit to their time together how could a relationship ever be more than an affair – fun then done?

With that being said this is part of a series but definitely be read out of order and you absolutely know what is going on.

First off, the grammar was spot on and I loved that Mia was the one doing the protecting. #girlpower. The negatives are plain and simple...It was boring.

He's in Chicago shooting a new movie and Mia is assigned to protect him, by going undercover as his girlfriend. Being together 24/7 fans the flames of desire and Mia is fighting to keep her heart intact as the stalker gets closer and more dangerous.

The characters are well written and established. Mila, is the daughter of a cop and the sister of four police detectives. She has had to be tough her whole life. Up for the detective exam, she is lobbed a hot actor in the midst of a scandal with a stalker.

This romance started out as a job, with two very different personalities thrown together. One actor from Hollywood and one cop from Chicago who wants to be a detective. What could possibly go wrong? Oh and I can't forget the stalker. Things get real interesting with this person. Just you wait...things are just heating up. Settle back and enjoy. I did receive this ebook free in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Stalker, a cop, and a movie star sound like a start to a bad joke? Not this time! It is the storyline for a book. I read this book only in the series and thought it was fun and action packed. It is a stand alone book in a series.

I was given an ARC for a happily given review.
I cannot wait to read more from Margaret Watson.
