My best friend’s little sister has always been overprotected.

His family is worried about their little girl going off to college.
So I offer to let her stay with me while she gets settled and keep an eye on her.
But when Emma arrives, she’s not the geeky girl in pigtails I remember.
Gone is that girl. Hello to the curviest piece of @ss in town and I want to take a bite.

It's a safe read but there was to many mention's of his supposedly manwhore past. Plus it got really annoying them always getting water out of the fridge or drink it.... I was like how many times are you going to mention that. 23 times give or take - we get it they like the water. I also started skimming about halfway though. This book just wasn't for me.

This book ends at 25% and there is a bonus book after.

* He's 23 and she is 19.
* As soon as he sees her again there is no one else for him. Ce

Shout-out to me for finishing Overprotected!

I was so bored, I started to skip at some point. The writing was stilted, always telling, never showing.

I used to love the little sister/brother‘s best friend trope but this was poorly executed.

Also, those characters didn‘t feel real. They were kind of plastic for lack of another word.

Very sweet and a little sexy. Not a lot of angst but a lot of emotions, the H was a sweetie who fell hard for the girl he'd known forever. The best part is even though he fought it he didn't fight to the point of stupidity, he quickly realized that he was all in and went for it. Happy endings. 😊

***I decided to review an ARC of this book.***

No tension

I liked the characters and the writing style,
but the plot was uber boring. There was a couple plot lines that could have amped up the tension, but they just collapsed. I was really disappointed.

1 1/2 stars!

Emma has really been smothered by her family, thinking she’s safe with her brothers best friend Jackson, they allow her to move away and in with him. Sparks fly and they end up together in this sexy romantic read.

We get it. She is off limits! How many times can that possibly be said? There was just too much repeated, that it became impossible to enjoy the story. This was just not my cup of tea.

What a Sweet Romance

When 19 year old Emma heads to college in Nashville,, her older brother calls on his BFF Jackson who is there to play football to watch out for her. What happens when Jackson winds up being the biggest threat to Emma. The sexual tension is thick, the romance is sweet and the heartache so painful as Emma deals with her relatives in letting her grow up and experience love.

Romatic Book and Plenty of Bonus Stories!

A wonderful light read, heavy on the romance, light on the drama. But the real treat comes in all the bonus stories after the main event is over!

Emma and Jackson, best friend’s younger sister

They’ve know each other for years. He’s watched her grow up as she’s his best friend’s overprotected baby sister. With him going pro, he hasn’t seen little Emma recently . And he forget when his friend said she’d show at his apt where she’d live temporarily to start university. He was not prepared for the woman at his door, beautiful, curvy and smokin’ hot! Aw lawd, what has he gotten himself into?

This is the best story yet from Lulu Pratt about a professional football player, Jackson, who is known to be a player off the fields as well, and his best friend’s younger sister, Emma, who moves in with him when she starts college away from home. Emma’s brother sets it up with Jackson since he is very very protective of her and since Jackson grew up with him, he thinks that Jackson is her surrogate brother and will protect her just as fiercely. Emma is all grown up now and Jackson notices it, s ...more

Beautiful story of growing up and having a chance with your childhood love. Jackson has been best friends with Greg forever. Greg was super protective over his sister, Emma. Jackson fell into the habit of behaving like a protective older brother, too, until Emma grew up and that crush turned into a wild attraction! Ms Pratt has done a great job of blending Emma's blossoming while away from her family, and Jackson's need to protect her balanced with his desire to nurture her into this amazing per ...more

Lulu Pratt has done it again and written another amazing book! The characters are well developed and the story plays out so well. Emma is 19 and after studying at a community college she transfers her credits and will now be going to the University of Nashville. She's leaving Chattanooga to move to Nashville alone.

Amazing sexy read. Very well written story with great storyline and plot. The characters are well described and develops nicely. They are likeable and I had a great time reading this story. A story with twists that only makes it better and more captivating.
A book with lots of chemistry, passion, heartbreak and emotional ups and downs. It is about letting go and let people make their own experiences.

It is written in dual POV which gives the reader much more of the thoughts and feelings of the mai

This was a great read from Lulu Pratt and Overprotected was the perfect title. Emma has always been protected- by her brother, his best friend and her parents. She is finally breaking free to go to college but the one concession she has to make is to live with her brothers best friend, the one she has secretly had a crush on for years. This is a great book with passion, heartbreak and some subterfuge with an HEA. Loved it. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.

I liked this storyline about Emma transferring to a University and staying with her brother's best friend and pro quarterback, Jackson. As you can imagine they are attracted to each other and play around, but before it heats up to high Emma moves out. All sorts of high jinx ensues. Will Emma and Jackson reunite?

Emma's moving out of her childhood home and moving to Nashville to start college. Her overprotective brother asks his best friend pro footballer Jackson to take care of her and keep her safe from over zealous males.
But who's going to protect Emma from him?!
Jackson can't keep his mind off Emma and eventually his hands off her too.
Overprotected by the brilliant Lulu Pratt is a standalone steamy brothers best friend romance filled with football action and hot sex scenes.
