The Protective One: A Billionaire Bride Pact Romance by Cami Checketts
Kindle Edition, 159 pages
Published September 2nd 2016 by Birch River
Betrayed by an FBI agent while in protective custody, MacKenzie Gunthrie escapes a crime lord and is left hiding from the authorities and her enemies. She finds solace in the peaceful mountain town of Crested Butte, Colorado. With help from a longtime girl's camp friend and a new identity, she's starting to feel safe. The only problem is the overconfident and much too good-looking Isaac Turnbow. Protecting identity has become second nature, but Isaac poses a threat to her heart. 

Isaac Turnbow has an undeniable need to convince MacKenzie he’s someone she can trust and kiss, but when well-armed men arrive to disturb their budding relationship, he must prove to her and himself that he can protect her. 

This fast-paced, clean Billionaire Bride Pact Romance is a fun and touching read you won’t be able to put down.  
My Review: 4 Stars
Cami Checketts always writes such fantastic romantic suspense books and this one is no exception. For the most part, this Billionaire Bride Pact series has been fairly light-hearted, but this one jumps right into a very tense situation that had me wondering what in the world was going on. MacKenzie has witnessed a horrific murder and is now on the run. Her old camp friend, Haley, offers her some protection in a beautiful, small, Colorado town. 
I cannot even imagine having to constantly look over my should, as MacKenzie has to do. She's a very dedicated person and one who thrives on routine, which resonates with me, as I'm a creature of habit. Isaac, Haley's older brother, is very overprotective--almost to a fault. But can that trait be a weakness when her best interest is at heart? I'll tell you that it can be--especially when that flaw causes some very swoony moments and sparks of chemistry. I loved the banter and flirting, but felt that at times, MacKenzie was a tad bit rebellious towards the advice given to her. She was very fickle with her feelings and decisions.
I wanted to see just a little more of the other camp friends, but thought it was great how different relationships gradually grew, or fell apart, throughout the story. This is a good installment in this fun series. I love how individual each story is.
Content: mild, swoony romance (kissing, some innuendo, a vague mention of rape); mild violence (murder, attacks--not graphic). Clean!
