The Protective Groom by Lucy McConnell


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: 4.5 Stars

Harely Wilson is beautiful, sassy, rich, famous and being stalked by a creeper. They need a plan to either draw the creeper out to be caught or make them forget about her and move on. Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on who you ask) there is only one option. That option?! Get married! Harley has no desire to be married to a fake groom but it's the only way to keep her and her family safe and get rid of the psychopath once and for all.

Noah Baker needs to put the past behind him and make a fresh start with his life. What better way to do that than to become a BMB groom! He has been waiting for a few months for Pamela Jones to reach out to him for a bride. But when the time finally arrives he's not sure if he can do it or not. But one look at Harley's picture and he knows that he must do this. He just couldn't live with himself if anything happened to her because he was too afraid of history repeating itself.

From the very beginning sparks start to fly and there is chemistry aplenty between Harley and Noah. Harley does her best to fight it but even she isn't immune to Noah's charm. ;) But they can't move forward with where their relationship might lead until the stalker is caught. Noah has to stay alert and on his toes. He cannot afford even the smallest of distractions like Harley's smell, laugh or kisses. Harley realizes that she needs to be on her best behavior for her husband's sake. But once the stalker is caught?! All bets are off and she will not hold back when it comes to making her husband hers forever.

These two! *dreamy sigh* The Protective Groom is definitely one of my favorites in the series! I first fell in love with Noah while reading The Country Bride and by the end I was really, really hoping he would get his own book. You better believe I squealed like a teenage girl when I discovered he would! And his story did not disappoint! I absolutely loved it! So why only 4.5 stars? Yep.. you guessed it. The book just ended! An epilogue would have been perfect! I am dying to know what Noah ended up doing with his life when all the danger was behind them. 

This series is definitely one of my favorites! I fell in love with it before I even finished the very first book! I cannot wait for the next book in the series to come out! I am secretly hoping that Jackson gets his own book. If anyone needs/deserves a HEA, it's him! ;)

And can I just tell you that I absolutely, 110% LOVE my casting?! These two are perfect in my opinion! ;)


  1. Great review! I can't wait to read it! As always, perfect casting.

    1. This series is seriously SO fun! I can't wait to hear what you think! I really, really hope Jackson gets his own book! ;)
