Review of Overprotected by Jennifer Laurens


Ashlyn: A lonely society princess living in New York City.

Daddy hired you to be my bodyguard.

Colin: Childhood enemy, now her protector.

Daddy thought I’d be safe. He thought I’d never fall in love. He thought he could keep me forever.

Charles: obsessed with keeping her safe, keeping her his, he hires the one person he knows she could never fall in love with: Colin.

Daddy was wrong




For months I have been reading half way through books then putting them down and moving on to the next one I couldn't find a book to thoroughly enjoy and want to know what happens next. I won the Arc edition of Overprotected from Jennifer Laurens and I'm not going to lie I wasn't sure whether to read it.

When my sister  kept going on about this book Heavenly I thought I'd check out the author and that's when I saw Overprotected know the saying 'don't judge a book by it's cover' ? Well I do! It sounded so good I decided to try and spam Jennifer Laurens twitter up it didn't work but eventually she must have saw my tweet as I won!!  :)


I was sooo excited when the book came I couldn't wait to go to bed and see how this planned out. I am still surprised that on the second page of reading (no lies) I knew I'd found the book to get me out of my rut.


Reading about Ashlyn and the way Jennifer Laurens writes it is beyond me, It was so captivating the love between Colin and Ashlyn seems so real I was yelling at the book at some points 'Kiss her' but as he said he worked for her daddy and couldn't. I was so disappointed as they couldn't have been together or Colin would have been sacked for being Charles' employee.


Stuart I disliked from the moment I first read about him. He freaked me out and gave me the creeps I was so glad when he was out of the picture.


Colin was of course the guy Ashlyn fell in love with which proved her Daddy wrong. The way Colin was described was so dreamy why can't he be real? Hmm . . .  Might have to keep an eye out for him.


The relationship between Ashlyn and her mother near the end I felt got stronger, I just hope she doesn't rely on her rockstars to much now. When she hurt her arm I would love to have known what she was trying to do . . . I don't think she was going to kill herself.


The friendship between Felicity and Ashlyn I loved it was so true and real. Felicity knew everything about Ashlyn and still stuck by her the same with Colin as bonkers as some families can get these relationships I loved.


I hope this makes sense :) I'll read over it and try and fix it up a bit if it needs to be. have you guys read it? what did yous think? Comments please.
