Review: Mine to Protect by Cynthia Eden

He agreed to protect her…not love her. 

Victor Monroe left behind a brutal past when he decided to become an FBI Agent. He knows that other agents think he’s too cold, that he has ice in his veins, but he doesn’t care what folks say about him. He gets the job done—always. No matter the cost. 

Then he’s blackmailed into guarding…her. 

Zoe Peters, ex-showgirl, daughter of a mob boss and drug dealer, a witness who wants to vanish. Zoe is wild, beautiful, and on far too many hit lists. It’s now Victor’s job to keep her safe—a job that Zoe makes damn difficult. But keeping her alive is his mission. It's supposed to be strictly professional between them. Just another case. Only… 

He never counted on falling for her. 

Zoe is not the woman he expected. She isn’t cold or hard. She lights up the room when she walks into it, and despite the hell surrounding her, Zoe is good. Probably too good for Victor because Zoe doesn't know about the secret deal that Victor worked out with her father. Zoe doesn't know that Victor intended to use her for information and then turn her over to waiting operatives. 

Desire wasn't supposed to enter the equation. The white-hot lust he feels for Zoe should have never threatened Victor's legendary self-control. But she's under his skin...melting his ice...getting to him... Soon Victor doesn’t care about the law or about the lines he has to cross for Zoe. She is his priority. No one will hurt her, not on his watch. Victor will not rest until every threat to her has been eliminated. And then… 

Zoe will be his.

Zoe is a woman caught between a rock and a hard place. And it her father's fault. He a mafia boss from hell and since he was caught all of the bad guys are trying to get back at him by hurting her. Also the government wants her too but they want her to rat out her father. And it's Victor's job to keep her in protective custody and she keeps trying to get away and disappear.  Unfortunately someone has put a high bounty on her head and Victor's caught up with her again which put them both in the cross hairs of sneaky killer. I loved that though Victor is an FBI agent he's not goody goody. He is definitely falling for Zoe and is determined to do whatever he needs to protect her but Zoe is no slouch in the brains department herself and she is determined to fight for her future. i am not going to give away the ending but needless to say its a HEA. I was given this book by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I give this one a 4 star review. If you wish you can purchase it here.
