Review: Protecting His Assets by J.K. Coi

CEO Steve Nolan is wealthy, successful, and in danger. Now, thanks to his business partner, he has a bodyguard—a rigid, controlled woman with a smoky voice that invites steamy thoughts of rumpled sheets and oh-so-satisfying sleepless nights. So if Steve has to play the game, he's going to make damn sure he's in charge of the rules...just as long as no one finds out.

April Porter has met incredibly handsome, high-powered men before. Guys just as smooth, who didn't take her seriously, and who broke her heart. So she's just here to do her job and stay focused and professional.
Even if Steve Nolan isn't just another rich jerk.
Even if the sexual spark between them keeps getting hotter.
And even if protecting his business and his ass(ets) means April could lose her heart in the bargain...

Expected publication: December 7th 2015 by Entangled Publishing, LLC (Indulgence) 
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Kristine's Thoughts:

** I received an advanced readers copy from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!**

I want to say that this book was an insta-love book but it was more of an insta-lust book. April was hired to protect Steve by his partner after he received a bunch of threatening notes that could jeopardise their company. There was an instant opposites attract/lust at first sight thing going on between the two of them. Both of them had pasts that jaded them and made it not so easy to trust each others intentions and the added suspense of a mysterious stalker made for some pretty quick turning pages. It didn't take long before the heat turned up and some serious steam was rolling off the pages.

This book was a fast and easy book to get through. It was a typical contemporary romance that didn't offer up any real surprises but was entertaining all the same. There was the usual denying of attraction and battle of wills and lets not forget their histories that complimented these behaviours. The stalker aspect did add some additional intrigue above and beyond the usual romance but it was a tiny bit anti-climatic.

Fans of contemporary romance will be sure to enjoy this book as I did. This was the first book by this author for me but it certainly won't be the last. It was exactly what I need to satisfy my romance fix.
