Review 'Rules of Protection' by Alison Bliss’s rule breaker Emily Foster's birthday, and like everyone at The Jungle Room, she just wants to get some action. Unfortunately, she stumbles on the wrong kind, witnessing a mob hit. To protect her, she’s entered into the Witness Protection Program with by-the-book Special Agent Jake Ward as her chaperone.

When the location of their safe house is compromised, Jake stashes Emily deep in the Texas backwoods. The city-girl might be safe from the Mafia, but she has to contend with a psychotic rooster, a narcoleptic dog, crazy cowboys, and the danger of losing her heart to the one man she can’t have.

Jake's as hot as he is infuriating, and she can't help but push all his buttons to loosen him up. Their mutual, sizzling sexual attraction poses a dilemma: Jake’s determined to keep her safe and out of the wrong hands; she’s determined to get into the right ones—his.

My Review:

A couple of weeks ago Alison Bliss approached me with through email with the question is I wanted to read and review her book ‘Rules of Protection’. After reading the book description I couldn’t believe how amazing this book sounded. I mean the words – Special Agent – Texas – Crazy Cowboys – are like alcohol to a struggling alcoholic. I just really needed to read this book. So off course I emailed Alison right back and this week I finally started reading it.

In ‘Rules of Protection’ we meet Emily Foster. Emily is celebrating her 28th birthday with her two best friends when she witnesses a murder. Scared out of her mind, Emily finds herself being chased by the criminals who committed the murder. Thankfully Emily is saved by handsome FBI special agent Jake Ward. When Emily goes into the Witness Protection Program, Jake is the one who gets Emily to her new home and helps her start a new life. But what they both didn’t expect is that the danger doesn’t end when Emily is in her new home and soon Emily and Jake are forced to hide in Texas, the state Jake is from. Although Emily would never admit is she soon finds herself getting more and more attracted to the hot and charming special agent. Unfortunately, Jake doesn’t seem to share her feelings, atleast that’s what Emily thinks. Even though Emily doesn’t see it, Jake isn’t as untouched by the beautiful and feisty 28th year old as he pretends.

This book was really incredibly amazing. ‘Rules of Protection’ is the kind of book you start reading and just never want to quit. This book is full of romance, action and it’s just really funny. It has been a while since a book made me laugh that much. I couldn’t get enough of Emily and Jake. I loved there fights and the chemistry between them was just so… so… so.. WOW!!! Yeah.. I definitely fell in love with this book.

The character I loved the most was definitely Emily. I loved her stuburness, her big mouth and her temper. But mostly I loved how insecure she was and how scared she was of losing another person she loved. These things just made her more real to me and I could definitely connect to these things. Emily is definitely not perfect and I loved that about her. And she was just really really funny!!
And Jake was just really swoon worthy!

‘Rules of Protection’ is definitely one of my new favorite books. This book needs to be on a bestseller list because it really is that good. I just really want to read it again!
If you’re a fan of Jamie McGuire, Jodi Linton, E.L. James etc. you should definitely read ‘Rules of Protection’. I promise you it will not disappoint!!

About the Author:


As the youngest of five girls, Alison Bliss has never turned down a challenge...or been called by the right name. Her writing career may have started out as a dare by one of her sisters, but Alison hasn't put her pen down since.

She grew up on a small island off the Texas Gulf Coast, where most of her childhood vacations consisted of camping or hunting trips to the deer lease. Although she'll always be a Texan at heart, Alison currently resides in the Midwest with her Iowa farm-boy husband and their two sons. With so much testosterone in her home, it's no wonder she writes "girl books."
She's an animal lover, a closet video game enthusiast, and believes the best way to know if someone is your soul mate is by canoeing with them because if you both make it back alive, it's obviously meant to be. Alison's an avid romance reader who enjoys penning the type of books she loves to read most: fun, steamy love stories with heart, heat, laughter, and usually a cowboy or two. As she calls it, "Romance...with a sense of humor."
