Review: Her Enemy Protector by Avery Flynn

Her Enemy Protector


By-the-book secret agent Lucas Bendtsen will do anything to keep his country safe—even if that means blackmailing the stepdaughter of a notorious mobster who is about to sell guns to a group of terrorists. The plan? He'll pose as her fiance in order to access her stepfather's guarded compound and find out the location of the arms deal. The problem? Despite her reputation as a heartless femme fatale, Ruby Macintosh is not at all what she seems.

Only a fool would double-cross the Organisation, but Ruby doesn't have any choice—not if she's going to save her brother and mother from her stepfather. So she places her life in the hands of a man who turns her on as much as he ticks her off…

The fake engagement may be the beginning of a high-stakes game of subterfuge, but when their hearts get involved, Lucas has to decide whether to break the rules or break Ruby's heart.


It was an interesting and fast read for me. I enjoyed the mystery and thrill of a life as spooks. And romance side of the story was no less entertaining. Lucas is a secret agent, right now he is on mission. He must apprehend the most notorious arms dealer and save his country from impending doom. Ruby is just a pawn for him. She doesn't matter, her only usefulness is that she is Lucas ticket to get access to her step-father.  Plan is simple, pretend to be Ruby's fiance, find out when and where her step-father is making a deal with criminals and save his country. But as soon as they arrive at her step-father's island things become more complicated. Apparently it won't be easy to convince everyone that they are in fact engaged.

Ruby doesn't mind helping Lucas. She is not a fan of her step-father. He is cruel and ruthless and if Lucas can help her family to get rid of him the so be it. What she doesn't think about is falling in love with Lucas. Now she is in trouble. She knows that for him only the mission matters but for her that will not be enough. Anyhow for now they need to focus on staying alive. Later they will deal with their feelings for each other.

An interesting read. I loved it. I would also like to that the publisher for providing complimentary copy of this book.
