Harley
My best friend asked me to be his best man at his destination wedding.

 

With a demanding and stressful job with NYPD life for me was all work and no play, but a
week-long trip to Hawaii to celebrate Jameson’s nuptials sounds like the perfect excuse to get
away.

 

Leaving work behind wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be, though.

 

That was until she walked up to me at the bar.

 

After a night of unbridled passion, I discover…she’s the maid of honor in Jameson’s wedding.

 

Raylynn
My best friend asked me to be her maid of honor at her destination wedding.

 

After finding my now ex-fiance in a compromising position, escaping to Hawaii is the perfect
excuse to find myself again.

 

With nothing to lose, I approach the hottest guy in that bar and take a chance on getting my own
groove back.

 

There’s just one hiccup…he’s actually the best man in Liv’s wedding.

 

It was only supposed to be a fling, but when returning home leads to chaos and one relocation to
New York, can these two love birds go from fling to forever? Time will tell.

 

Afterall…425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

*My Review*

Welcome to my stop on the release tour for another fantastic installment in the 425 Madison series, Love Under Protection! This time around, Jameson and Olivia are getting married so their best friends Raylynn and Harley are joining them in Hawaii for the festivities. Harley is looking forward to unwinding from his job as a police officer in New York City and Raylynn is trying to forget all about her recent disasters and disappointments surrounding her break-up and the loss of her job. Each arriving in Hawaii early, Harley and Raylynn meet in a bar and decide to have a one night fling which is fine until they realize they are best man and maid of honor in the same wedding. 

I absolutely loved this addition to the 425 Madison series! Love Under Protection has chemistry and romance, but also plenty of conflict and suspense. Trying not to give spoilers, one of the things I loved and that made it so real for me was Harley’s reaction when he sees Raylynn again. It wasn’t this fairy tale romance but real reflection and it took some time for things to get back on track for them. Actually, there were numerous relatable and realistic moments throughout this book that made me enjoy it all the much more. 

Harley and Raylynn absolutely sizzle together while also forming a strong friendship. I highly recommend this one to fans of contemporary romance, especially those that love romance with obstacles and suspense. Although I always recommend reading the entire series, this can easily be enjoyed on its own if you are new to 425 Madison.

*Thanks to Forever Write PR for providing this ARC in exchange for my honest opinion!

 

 

Excerpt 
Copyright @ 2020 Aubree Valentine


Raylynn gives me a once over then bursts into laughter.

I look down to see what’s so funny and nearly lose it.

Son of a bitch.

There’s a huge white spot on the crotch of my shorts. It doesn’t help that I’m hard as a rock too, because of what she’s wearing.

“I didn’t mean to interrupt. You could have said you were busy.”

“Funny. Get the hell in here so I can get these off,” I grunt.

She steps inside my apartment and looks around. “Nice place.”

“Thanks. I’ll be right back.” I dart toward the bedroom. “It’s paint by the way,” I call over my shoulder before shutting the door.

Last goddamn time I go paintballing with Jameson and Liam too.

“That’s what they all say,” she yells back.

When I come out, I’m dressed in a nice pair of jeans and a polo shirt. Raylynn gives me a whistle and motions for me to spin around.

“Forget it. You’re not objectifying me.” I grin. “And that paint. Ask Jameson what happened.”

She holds up her hands and snickers. “I’ll pass, but thanks.”

“You good to walk in those?” I point to her shoes. “We’ll need to take the subway.”

“These old things?” Raylynn lifts a foot. “I could run laps in these.”

“We’re not running laps, but I’ll take your word for it.”

She reaches for my shoulders and starts massaging the muscles. “Aww, you’re tense. Are you in a mood?”

I’m tense because she’s standing in my apartment looking like a whole damn snack, and I know nothing is going to happen besides a few drinks.

“Sweetheart, the only mood I’m in is the mood to get out of this apartment for a while,” I lie.

“Well then , let’s get the fuck out of here!” she cheers. “Ooo. Wait a minute. Harley Wagner , are you wearing a gun or are you happy to see me?”

“Christ, I’m tense, and you’re in a really good mood.”

“Seriously, are you wearing your gun?” I sigh and slip my keys into my front pocket. “Yes, Raylynn. I’m packing heat.”

“Well, that I knew.”
