I think I've found a new book boyfriend. His name is Ryan! Oh wait, you don't know what a book boyfriend is? Think about it. How many times have you read a book and thought, "wish I had a guy like that"? Well, that's a book boyfriend. A character that you just fall in love with.
So let me tell you about Ryan Dixon. He is perfect! He's gorgeous. (I know, it's a book and I can't really see him. But trust me, the image that I have in my head when I read about him is GORGEOUS!) He's smart, owns a very successful business, so he's rich too. He's a former Army Ranger so you know he's fit! And he's funny and sweet, yet still all male. Who wouldn't fall in love with someone like that?
Abbi certainly fell for him. But she doesn't think he'd ever be interested in her...a George country girl who up and moves to L.A. to start over. She works in a club, which is where she first meets Ryan, who is providing security to some rap musician. That's his business...protection.
When they meet, they are both drawn to each other, but they both try to fight it. Neither seems to think they are good enough for each other. Abbi because she's just a country girl and Ryan is so successful and probably considered one of the most eligible bachelors in the area. And Ryan doesn't think he deserves Abbi because of the things he's done in his past, specifically while in the military.
When something horrible happens to Abbi, Ryan realizes that he needs to stop fighting his feelings. All he wants to do now is protect her. But can he?
Protect Me is the first book from Jennifer Culbreth and at times, you can tell that she's working things out, but she still writes a great book for a beginner and I know that she's only going to get better. You'll find heat and passion, suspense and danger and love and family all wrapped up in this story. I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars.
And I have high hopes for her next release, Cherish Me, which will be out later this year. It's going to be even steamier and I suspect that Jace will soon be added to my list of Book Boyfriends.
Here is a teaser from Cherish Me:

Abbi Hastings had never been fearless. She'd been firmly tangled in her small town roots her entire life until an unexpected inheritance provided her a chance to escape. As she took the only chance she’d have to get out, Abbi left all of the what if’s behind as she boarded the plane with her one way ticket to Los Angeles.
Relentless to not fail and fighting for her own independence, it all goes to hell when fate throws a curve in her path. Everything changed the day she accidentally falls into the arms of Ryan Dixon. The tall, dark eyed, and handsome CEO of LA’s hottest bodyguard service who is fighting his own dark demons.
Can Abbi let go of her fears to take a leap of faith and allow Ryan to protect her? From what, she doesn’t yet know…
