Penny…I really liked her, even when she made the same mistakes that many women of in a certain situation make. Admittedly, there was a moment where I was disappointed in her. It couldn’t be helped even though I understood her reasoning. It hit me hard and made me hope for her triumphant HEA. I wanted to cheer her on as I watched her heal her broken pieces together and show the strong and sassy woman underneath.
Shapiro…what can I say? Who doesn’t love a flawed man with a beautiful heart and protective soul? There were times I wanted to hug him, other times I wanted to shake him, yet other times I wanted to knock him upside his head. Yep, I loved Shapiro.
The addition of Niki and Nina gave the story the much-needed moments of humor. I swear, Penny was so lucky to have both of them in her life. The way they brought Penny to life was a beautiful thing to “see.”
Thank you, Cary Hart, for showing a side to a serious problem that many forget exists because it’s not obvious and because people make talking about it taboo. And thank you for showing that a real, beautiful, and selfless love exists, even after the harshness of life takes a toll.
Penny is in a toxic relationship and can’t get out of it on her own. Someone finally “sees” her and helps her escape. She makes a friend in Niki, Nina and Shapiro. They are going to help her get away from her boyfriend and start over. Shapiro leaves her in the care of a family member and pretty much leaves her alone because he is attracted to her and he knows that in her current state he can’t act on it. When Shapiro checks in he finds out she left the care of his family member and went back to her boyfriend and that the cycle started again.
Shapiro brings Penny back to his apartment over Spotlight where he can keep a better eye on her and help her get back on her feet. Luckily Niki and Nina are there to help Penny start to feel normal again. Shapiro and Penny spend a lot of time talking and they learn things about each other. Penny loves to bake and dreams of having a bakery to call her own. Shapiro is kind of obsessed with Kool Aid and that it is like a security blanket for him. It takes him back to a time in his life when he was happy and it has become a habit for him to always have Kool Aid on hand. Penny’s baking is the same, it calms her and brings her peace.
After a particularly difficult talk that Shapiro has with Penny about his past she finally comes to terms with what was happening to her in her relationship with her ex boyfriend. She knew what was happening but couldn’t accept that it was what it was.
I loved the epilogue. It was exactly what this couple needed. I had a smile on my face while I read it because Shapiro and Penny finally found what they both were searching for.
Penny is lost in the beginning. A shell of herself. She is given a chance to start over and try to rebuild her life. She meets Mama Ang who is a strong, comforting force of hope. As she starts to gain confidence and move forward, her past pulls her back. The consequences are brutal and leave her in shambles. Shapiro is front and center in trying to help her pick up the pieces.
Shapiro is strong and gentle. Intense and considerate. Protective and supportive. I fell for him hard! He is enlisted to help protect Penny. The connection he feels towards Penny is magnetic and he is determined to help her flourish. However, Shapiro is harboring a secret from his past. One that threatens not only himself but Penny too.
Penny and Shapiro must fight both internal and external battles. They have to build trust within themselves and with each other. There are some wonderful moments of intimacy and vulnerability between them. I laughed and cried and felt their yearning. If I have a complaint, it is that I felt a conflict in the story was resolved too neatly and quickly for my taste. I wanted more drama and/or depth to the resolution. Protect Me will pull you in and wrap you up tight in its embrace.
Penny has been in an abusive relationship for years. Once she makes the decision to leave, her protector becomes her world. Shapiro is doing everything he can to protect Penny but he also needs to protect himself.
This book is filled with a lot of emotion. I cried a lot. But the journey Penny and Shapiro take made each tear completely worth it. No one deserved a happily ever after more than these two!!
This is the thing that Cary Hart does so well, writing stories with purity and heart. This is hands down Hart's best book to date.
Everyone thinks Tyler is after Penny but could they be wrong ?
I love this book I can not wait to see what will be next
