Book Review: Order of Protection by Lexi Blake



To high-end defense attorney Henry Garrison, Win Hughes is a woman he met during one of the most trying times of his life. She’s soft and warm, and he finds solace in their brief relationship. But Win has a secret. She’s actually Taylor Winston-Hughes—born to one of the wealthiest families in the country, orphaned as a child by a tragic accident. Win moves in the wealthiest circles, but her lavish lifestyle hides her pain.

When her best friend is murdered in the midst of a glittering New York gala, Win’s charged with the crime, and the only person in the world she wants to see is Henry.

As the case takes a wild turn and Win’s entire life is upended, she must look to the people she’s closest to in order to find a killer. And Henry must decide between making his case and saving the woman he loves…

Order of Protection started out slow for me but then grew into a great story. It had murder, suspense, and a hot couple. Normally I don’t go for these sorts of books but I’m glad that I gave this one a try.

I will start off by saying that I thought that Henry was a huge jerk. He seemed to want be the boss of everything and never gave Win a shot at being the brains of the operation. She was an intelligent woman and I thought that he was overwhelming her. However, once I started to learn more about him I saw how he balanced Win. And that is the key to any good romance, the couple has to compliment each other.

The who done it part of the story definitely had me trying to put the pieces together. Although, I did manage to figure out who it was that killed Brie, I wasn’t prepared for the twist Lexi Blake threw at me. The killer definitely isn’t in the background and some side story that gets lost. Lexi makes sure to tie any loose ends up.

This book is the first in the series. I am curious to see what characters will be getting their own books because quite honestly there are a lot to chose from this book. I am kind of hoping that Noah, one of the strong secondary characters in this book will get his own story.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
