Review: Overprotected by Jennifer Laurens
Author: Jennifer Laurens
Goodreads | Review List
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.
I first heard of this book over at Jennifer Laurens' blog itself. I wasn't much interested in it until I started following her on twitter and read all the teasers she tweeted. The ones that really got me going was lines from Overprotected. I was sooo excited to read it and it didn't disappoint me one bit.
The book was written beautifully with a touch of simplicity. I adored Ashlyn, she was a character I could connect to completely. The poor thing had to go through her entire life without freedom. Its so sad. I kind of know how she feels. But instead a bodyguard I have a chaperon.
This was my first time reading a YA Romance that had nothing to do with anything paranormal or dystopian and I loved it to bits. Colin is such a hottie that I know every one will love. The plot was predictable but it still kept me reading and reading until the very end of the book. Jennifer Laurens really knows how to write 'em.
Overall, you have to read this book. It was short and awesome. The connection between the two main characters and the background and scenario will really keep you occupied completely. :D It was unputdownable and soft! 5/5 stars Now, I have a book to lend people when they ask for a book without anything paranormal. :D
