Human. Angel. Demon.

Three species that have coexisted since the beginning of time, although humankind is Necromancer Riley Stone doesn’t care about anything but getting the job done and getting paid. There are few people who willingly associate with the likes of him. Most humans don’t know that the demon world exists, and, on the other side of the veil, the angels and demons in charge consider him a lower life form despite his ‘special skills.’ 

Her name has been Paige Matthews for the last three years. Before that, it was Jane Doe. Before that is nothing more than black hole after a mysterious accident wiped her memories away. Her dreams are filled with blurred images of terror of something that won’t rest until it finds her. 

When Riley saves Paige from a demon bounty hunter, both are faced with an uncertain path before them. With no memory of the supernatural world that parallels her own, Paige is vulnerable and alone. Despite Riley’s natural inclination to not get involved, he knows that unless he intervenes Paige will wind up dead. 

Now Paige has a guardian who is far from an angel looking after her. Only one thing is certain. The way to save her life is by first finding out who she really is. 

Protect Her was an okay read with a few good laughs and witty banter. Gotta love that witty banter! However, I will say going into this book (parts 1–3) I didn't know that there was more. I was expecting the entire thing to be over by the end and was not happily surprised to see that it wasn't. When I accepted this for review I wasn't informed of this, but if I had done a little research I might have known. Oh well! It's a done deal now!

Though I liked the MCs of this story, Riley and Paige, I did not like their insta-love. In two days, they were falling head over heels and I can't buy that. I DID, however, believe in their instant attraction. They were two sexy people and I could see the appeal each had to the other. Riley was a bad ass necromancer who seriously wasn't scared of a damn thing. Except maybe a particular angel and demon, but besides that dude could summon the dead. Not much to be afraid of after that! Paige was brave and strong though her initial reactions to everything happening to her were normal and extremely girly. I liked how she wouldn't let Riley boss her around even though she knew he had good intentions. But she was smart and usually went along with Riley's plans for escaping the demon army that was after her for the bad ass demon-get-dead powers she had.Though this was a paranormal romance there wasn't a lot of sexual activity. I'll leave you to discover why, but there IS a reason, and it has to do with the story not the author. 

I liked the writing well enough, but it wasn't spectacular or anything. It flowed nicely and accomplished its purpose, and I have to say the action scenes were well written. A lot of details and time went into writing them and I could tell. So a good thing there.

Overall, just an okay book for me. I could continue the series, most definitely. I will recommend it to those readers who are into the whole angel/demon thing and don't mind a little insta-love. It's worth a read.
