Morgan Stone will do anything to keep his daughter, Katie. But would he steal? Yes. Lie? Absolutely. Cheat? Most definitely.

When Jeff, Katie’s biological father, threatens to file for paternity, Morgan, blind to anything but the need to protect Katie, strikes back with photographs of Jeff with one woman while engaged to another. With evidence of his ex-partner’s infidelity, he meets Jeff’s fiancée, Kristen St. John. In less than thirty seconds, he destroys her dreams with damning photographs of Jeff in the arms of another woman.

Can Kristin believe the evidence of her fiancés’ infidelity? Caught in the middle of a battle between two men, Kristin doesn’t know who to believe or trust, especially her heart when it comes to Morgan. She finds herself falling for this fierce, loyal man. But when it comes to loving Kristen, will Morgan find it within himself to give up everything, even Katie?

I found myself reading Protecting Katie by accident, but I have to say the mistake wasn’t so bad. Going into Protecting Katie I was a tad skeptical only because the blurb didn’t exactly speak to me. After some self debate I decided to go outside of my literature norm.

I do want to go on record and say that heroine Kristen...SUCKED. i did not like her one little bit. Whiny. Gullible. Unsubstantial. Irksome. Just a few choice words to described her.

My over the top moment was her flipping out on Morgan for wanting to go to the police regarding fraud, but doing such would have caused her father to be arrested too. Really. Really. he is an adult that took part in illegal activity and he KNEW it was wrong. #Icant.

Morgan is respectable. He’s man that has been betrayed and wounded by people close to hm . His now deceased wife cheated on him with his ex-business partner. End result a child that he’s now raising as his own. His number one mission is to protect her from her conning bio father Jeff.

My highlight moment for Morgan. Not only was he’s trying to protect his daughter from Jeff, but he’s also taken up the task of protecting Kristen as well.

Jeff who’s not only Kristen’s flaky fiancee, but also Morgan’s archenemy. he gets the official middle finger award. This guy only cares for his self. I can’t think of one positive thing to say about him.

While I didn’t care for a majority of the characters. Ms. Thomas did a wonderful job with Protecting Katie.She was able to maintain my attention. The man drama was the most refreshing thing I’ve experience in a while. Let me not forget that it was a simple quick read.
