Book Review: Protect Me (Donovan Family Book 6) by Margaret Watson

The Donovan Family Book 6
Title: Protect Me
Author: Margaret Watson
Series: Donovan Family #6
Pages: 329
My Rating: ❤❤❤❤

Police officer Mia Donovan is studying for the detective's exam when her captain offers her an assignment – be Finn O'Rourke's personal bodyguard for the next three weeks. He's in town to film a movie, he has a stalker, and the threats are escalating.

Mia isn't interested – she's focused on the looming exam. But her captain convinces her that successfully protecting Finn will look very good on her record when promotion decisions are made. So, reluctantly, she takes the assignment.

Finn isn't the arrogant, egotistical actor Mia expected. There's more than meets the eye when it comes to the 'most hated man in America', Finn's nickname since he cheated on his girlfriend, a beloved pop star.

But his stalker is lurking and the threat is escalating. Although Mia's feelings for Finn are growing, her job is to protect Finn, not fall in love with him.

*I received a free copy of Protect Me in exchange for an honest review*

Besides reading, one of my favorite things to do is watch crime shows. From NCIS to Criminal Minds and everything in-between, I watch it all. So, when this books description offered romance and some cool crime action, I knew that I'd like it! 

I absolutely loved both Finn and Mia! They have this banter that is extremely entertaining. They actually remind me a lot of Castle and Beckett from one of my all time favorite shows, Castle. It's hard not to see the similarities. A witty woman with a badge pitted against a charming "ruggedly handsome" celebrity. You know that's the perfect recipe for something great!

Okay, so combine that idea with the fact that Mia is so close to her cop family, and you get a sort of cross between Castle and the tv show Blue Bloods. Mia's family even meets up at least once a month to eat dinner together. This was my first Donovan book, but from what I've seen, Mia's family is absolutely great! I couldn't imagine growing up with four older brothers! 

Overall, this was a good fun read! The dialogue between our two protagonists was great and truly entertaining. And the stalker plot line also helped keep things interesting. Also, I'm ready to try some of that Oscar's Mac-and-Cheese (trust me, you will too after you read this)!!

"She thinks you're stalking me."
"Why the hell would I do that? I see too much of your ugly mug as it is."
