While I had mixed feeling on the previous book Dangerous Promise I was still looking forward to starting this one.
That was until I actually started reading then a couple of chapters in I put my kindle down and decided I was done.
One of the problems with the previous book was the seemingly endless one step forward two steps back between Nina and Ewan. I thought we’d moved past that when they finally got together. And while I know that circumstances changed at the end I didn’t expect this to start

She wasn't going to fool herself into thinking this was a new beginning. It was an interlude, no more than that.

I think I've been disappointed in this series ever since I realized it was a trilogy focused on the same couple with an over arcing plotline to tie them together. Even though this isn't a contemporary romance in the strictest sense, seeing as it's set in the future, nonetheless.. it fits the same general terms. And it's pretty rare a couple can be made to be interesting for more than o

I've given this a C+ at AAR, so that's 3.5 stars.

Wicked Attraction is the second book in Megan Hart’s The Protector trilogy in which the three books tell one overarching story – which means there are spoilers for book one in this review.

In Dangerous Promise, the author made a terrific job of building her vision of the world of the late twenty-first/early twenty-second century in which the books are set, and of introducing her two principal characters. Nina Bronson is ‘enhanced’, a human with

As The Protector series continues, Megan Hart proceeds to amaze me with the twists and turns, surprises and amount of love between Ewan and Nina. Wicked Attraction picks up where Dangerous Promises ended and I couldn't wait to get into the story to see just what Ewan had up his sleeve to get Nina to trust him again. I was astonished with where this story took me.

Ewan did pull out all the stops but Nina was having none of it, even though her heart thought that she should give in. It's hard to for

Wicked Attraction is the second installment in The Protector series in which new dangers emerged, and things got more emotional and complicated for the main characters Nina and Ewan.

Poor Nina and Ewan... I had that thought many times throughout the book, especially at the very end. The title of the third book made me suspect the story was headed that way, but, still, poor Nina and Ewan. I had that same thought at the beginning of the book.

In the previous installment, Dangerous Promise, Ewan an

I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I am quickly becoming a fan of this series and I'll tell you why.  Yeah, it's written by Megan Hart and she's an awesome writer.  But this is all about the kick ass heroine of this series, Nina Bronson.  I really like how her character is being developed, how she handles the things that are thrown at her.  I just LI

Wicked Attraction is the second book in the Protector series, set in a not too distant future, and starring the same couple in all three books in the trilogy. You shouldn't read this one without reading book 1 as it sets the stage, and the fantastic world building, for book 2. In the first story we were introduced to billionaire Ewan, creater of technology that was used to create super soldier turned bodyguard Nina. He was under a myriad of death threats and while protecting him they fell in lov ...more

This wasn't as good as the first one for me. There was too much back and forth between the two, and I also thought they needed to communicate better with each other instead of jumping into bed after every argument.

“’You’re in a cage,’ the shadow man tells her without moving into the light. ‘I want to get you out of it. I want to save you.’
‘I’m the one who does the saving.’
The man’s voice fades as he speaks. ‘Not this time . . .’”

This book is the second in The Protector series, and shouldn’t be read as a standalone. It picks up a few weeks after the first book ends. I had some issues with the first book, mainly because I have a hard time with characters who lie, either directly or by omission. Given that,
I love love love books that take place in future there is just so much potential for storylines to go but this just felt tooo drawn out. Yes I get that World building is necessary for the 1st book and that’s why I had more patience with it BUT this one was just too much of the samething...

DNF even though it probably picks up near the end...
Bottom line - MH is one of my fav sexy-time authors so I will go back and finish once book 3 is out.

This one ends on a doozy of a cliff-hanger. So obviously this is not a book that you can read stand-alone. Still not convinced about Nina and Ewan's attraction either.

Recommended to read these books in order. I read the second one before the first. This is the first book of Ms. Hart that did nothing for me. It was just okay. I'm used to having internal conflict with the characters. Something tortuously poignant which makes me sad is what I expect. For this one, maybe because I didn't read the first book, it did not pull me in.

This story was hard to get into. Since Nina has a sort of amnesia, she didn't remember Ewan. The chemistry or relationship between the

Wicked Attraction is the second book in the exciting The Protector series by Megan Hart. A futuristic romance that you won't want to miss! I really enjoyed the first book in this series, but this one felt like more of the same back and forth between the main characters that I thought we would be past. I don't want to give away any details, especially for those who haven't read the previous book, which is necessary to do prior to reading this one. These are not stand alone books, and I
Cliffhanger endings can be brutal, but that’s always the risk with a series that deals with the lows and highs of a single pairing, and especially so if the narrative arc stretches out over all the books. Needless to say, ‘Wicked Attraction’ isn’t a standalone.

Here, the rift between Nina and Ewan widens, though that doesn’t stop both of them from dancing around each other, getting into the same arguments and eventually into bed. Rinse and repeat. She tells him off tearily but says she can’t eve

I liked the first book enough of this series to have a go at the second book, plus it’s a Megan Hart novel. Known for her erotic romances mixed in with drama, this sci-fi romance is definitely different from her usual books. But, of course, there are hot and steamy scenes to be expected. Just like the first, we get to follow the story with Ewan and Nina’s alternating points of view. While I find them likeable enough at the start of the series, here, they mostly came off whiny and indecisive whic ...more

part two picks up when book one ends. Nina being duped into an assignment for and by Ewan. He doesn't need a bodyguard when something a little more encumbering would work. I didn't care much for Ewan, at all. He shows his backside in book one and book two brings us much of the same. I didn't really think he'd try and not be such an a@@ but a girl can hope. Pfft.
Throughout this book we see the story evolve and it seems it is Nina who is in danger, leaving Ewan scratching himself. Does this man no

Wicked Attraction by Megan Hart is book 2 of the trilogy dealing with the near future issue of human enhancements. While mostly a suspense romance, it also shows the influence of that enhanced abilities could have on personal lives as well as society. This is a series best read in order since it is the continuing story of bodyguard, Nina Bronson and billionaire, Ewan Donahue. The plot certainly thickens in this new addition to the series.

This isn't a stand alone novel and the cliffhanger will pull some readers in and leaving others uninterested.

The story doesn't seem to flow well many times leave readers wondering if the are missing a part of the story in editing or if the author did it on purpose.

Many times I flipped though the pages finding the information repetitive or boring. Megan Hart also tries hard to make the story very political but ends up leaving readers wondering which side of the debt the author is on. Ewan and N

I went into this book with an open mind, even though I had mixed feelings about previous the book Dangerous Promise. Unfortunately, this story seem to pick up where the last one left off with the continual “one step forward, two steps back” relationship between Nina and Ewan.

However, after a terrible start and a review rating I wouldn’t normally bother to print, the second part of the story took flight and raced forward at a sprinter’s pace, keeping me totally glued till the end. The biggest pr

Ewan and Nina do not make falling in love look easy. The first half of this book is just him trying to get her to forgive him! And the second half is a TON of crazy action. It was quite a ride.

This is not a stand alone sort of series. Do not read this before book one. Oh, and that happy ever after? Well we haven't earned it yet I guess.

This is not my typical genre- some of this stuff is straight up weird to me, and not like anything I've read. It's in the future, a LOT had changed. But I'm so

Boy oh Boy, this series is getting better and better. I could not put this book down so much was happening but I just had to keep watching because what else could I do? I felt like this was a really well though out plot line, because I could not guess who the good and bad guys were. I was wrong at every turn, which I was actually happy about. I have to say that though throughout the book there was this new tension between Ewan and Nina, I was so happy to see how they were working everything out. ...more

Wicked Attraction picks up just about where the first book (Dangerous Promise) left off. Ewan and Nina's relationship up in the air as it begins you tend to wonder what will come of them. Ewan and Nina are sweet and sexy. Even with the rollercoaster ride they go through together you are rooting for them. I loved the twist with this one. And just like the first book there is a big old cliffy that has you wondering what will happen next for Nina and Ewan. You can tell in this one that Nina is star ...more

This one ends in another cliffhanger… and I’m done.

This second book is less awesome than the first. In this installment, the villains (yes, plural) were pretty obvious to me as a reader and I have a hard time believing that a super solider, even one with a few foggy and missing memories, wouldn’t see them coming a mile away.

There were better bits, particularly the sex scenes and interactions with the other super solider featured in the story. However, ultimately, dragging this out over several b

Wicked Attraction is the second book of this series and can I just say it just keeps getting better!

Following the same characters as book 1, we see Nina struggling to keep her emotions under control and at the same time she has to learn to trust Ewan again, something that is hard after all she has learned.

I loved the pace of this story, the intense chemistry and of course the same fantastic dialogue between the characters. Was completely unable to put this book down, and oh boy that ending! Ca
