It’s rule breaker Emily Foster’s birthday, and like everyone at The Jungle Room, she just wants to get some action. Unfortunately, she stumbles on the wrong kind, witnessing a mob hit. To protect her, she’s entered into the Witness Protection Program with by-the-book Special Agent Jake Ward as her chaperone.
When the location of their safe house is compromised, Jake stashes Emily deep in the Texas backwoods. The city-girl might be safe from the Mafia, but she has to contend with a psychotic rooster, a narcoleptic dog, crazy cowboys, and the danger of losing her heart to the one man she can’t have.
Jake’s as hot as he is infuriating, and she can’t help but push all his buttons to loosen him up. Their mutual, sizzling sexual attraction poses a dilemma: Jake’s determined to keep her safe and out of the wrong hands; she’s determined to get into the right ones—his.

Emily is put in the Witness Protection Program after witnessing a mob hit. Jake is part of her detail, duty bound to protect her with his life. What neither expected was to have to guard their hearts too.
I had so much fun reading Rules of Protection, it was action packed with the right amount of sarcasm injected. And I fell in love with all the characters (minus Germy, I didn’t like him).
Emily was just amazing, she was so witty and full of sarcasm. I knew every time she opened her mouth I’d be giggling away to myself and I was right. She just didn’t have a filter, she said what she wanted as soon as it popped into her head. It was so refreshing, and it drove Jake crazy which was a HUGE bonus.
Jake, that man drove me batshit crazy. I didn’t like him at first but warmed up to him eventually, I think he’s one of them who you love to hate. He’s yummy, a smart ass and a control freak, he’d take a bullet for those he loves and would do anything to protect what’s his.
Cowboy has got to be mentioned! I loved that man, he was funny, flirtatious, gorgeous, loyal and protective. He had me swooning a lot, especially towards the end when he told Jake to fuck off and leave Emily alone, he was my favourite character by far. Even if he is a ladies man 😉
Rules of Protection had a bit of everything; action, murder, fighting, romancing, love, sarcasm, hurt, betrayal and sexy men (can’t forget them). If you’re a fan of romance you should definitely read this one.
