The Protective Groom (Billionaire Marriage Broker #5) by Lucy McConnell {Review}

The Protective Groom (Billionaire Marriage Broker series #5) by Lucy McConnell
Kindle Edition, 216 pages
Published March 4th 2016 by Pepin Publishing Company
Noah Baker is about to meet the toughest woman in Texas—right before he marries her. 

Harley Wilson, of the Texas Wilsons, is being stalked by an unscrupulous creeper who is intent on doing her harm. In order to protect herself, Harley asks Pamela Jones to find her a groom. She needs someone who can hold his own in a firefight and happily sign annulment papers when this nightmare is over. 

Noah Baker thinks he’s hit the jackpot as a Billionaire Marriage Brokers’ groom. The position is the perfect opportunity to move forward and put the past behind him once and for all. However, Noah must dig into his training as a police officer and doing so brings up demons he buried two years ago when he left the force. 

Time runs short for Noah as his list of suspects grows to include an almost fiancĂ©, a twisted cousin, and Harley’s step-brother. With Harley’s father breathing down his neck, Noah finds himself falling for Harley in a way that makes this assignment as personal as—well, marriage.
My Review: 5 Stars
It's interesting how a story can draw me right in from the first page and keep a smile on my face until the end. I love a marriage of convenience and this one has a lot of swoony chemistry as an added bonus. Harley is from a very well-know and wealthy family. When a stalker threatens her, it's decided that a round-the-clock bodyguard can best protect her and Noah is hired to marry and protect her. 
For all her fame and fortune, Harley is genuine and sweet. She has a spunky streak, as Noah learns from the start, which gives the story a little spice. These characters become very comfortable and let their guards down with the reader, which allows for some vulnerability and I love that. Noah is amazingly human in all aspects of his life and that really drew me in even more. 
I love the chemistry and passion that arises from this couple's interactions. I would have loved to see the characters developed even more, but I was completely satisfied. The element of mystery and suspense really added to the story and I loved the twists that kept me guessing and engaged to the very end.
Content: mild, swoony romance; very mild violence. Clean!
