Summary: Ashlyn: A lonely society princess living in New York City.

Daddy hired you to be my bodyguard.

Colin: Childhood enemy, now her protector.

Daddy thought I’d be safe. He thought I’d never fall in love. He thought he could keep me forever.

Charles: obsessed with keeping her safe, keeping her his, he hires the one person he knows she could never fall in love with: Colin.

Daddy was wrong.



My Thoughts: Another Jennifer Laurens book that I adore! We meet Ashlyn who is 17 years old. She lives with her mother and father who basically treat her like a child. When she was just a little girl, she was kidnapped so ever since she has had a personal bodyguard and is watched over 24/7. The only time she is ever really alone is in her house in her bedroom, and her bodyguard still lives with them. But at least she's free to go room to room on her own. Ashlyn is fighting to have a little independence. She wants to be able to walk down the street on her own. Her latest bodyguard Stuart, has became infatuated with her and is in love with her. She eventually gets him fired. Her dad is too quick to find her another bodyguard.

All Ash wants to do is be normal, she wants to play piano, have friends, go on dates, and think about college. 

Whose her new bodyguard? Does Ash know him? Who is he? She comes down the steps to meet him and its none other than Collin, the boy who tortured her and picked on her when she was a child. She hates him with a passion. She spent years trying to get over him picking on her, and now he's her bodyguard?? NO!

It doesn't help matters that Collin has actually turned nice and hot so Ash has trouble staying mad at him. They spend more and more time together and she starts to feel things she shouldn't be feeling. Remember, she's supposed to hate him.

She's got quite a few dilemmas on her hands, as her parents are fighting, there are always girls at school trying to get Collin's attention, Ash just can't catch a break.

There are also new threats on Ash's life and she has people watching her every move. 

I won't say much more. You have to read the book to find out what happens. The story between Collin and Ash was beautiful. I had been in love with this cover ever since I saw it, and the book did not disappoint me one little bit. I feel in love with it from the very first page.I loved Ash and Collin's story. 

Overall: I loved Overprotected. I'd love to have Collin guard me any day of the week! Swoon! 

Cover: Love it! Its sexy! Her standing behind him is awesome, and he's a good looking guy! Very sexy and awesome cover. 

What I'd Give It:

Wow, I haven't heard about this book by Laurens. I own two of her books, 'Falling for Romeo' and 'Magic Hands', but haven't read them yet.

This sounds really good and the cover is really pretty. Great review! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

I've been dying to read this one since I first heard about it (which is saying a lot, because I actually really don't like the cover and I'm kind of a cover-whore.

The cover is too... self-published-ish. And considering the character is 17, the woman on the cover looks way too old, so does the guy. Good concept, bad execution).

But anyway, awesome review. :)
