Damion West was the boy who stole my young heart and then broke it. That was a long time ago though and I’m not a girl susceptible to hot boys with big egos who just happen to kiss well anymore. Nor have I kept up with Damion West. Okay, I have. Everyone has. He's the heir to West Enterprises.
Everyone knows Damion West.
Just not like I do.
But that's another story better left untold.
It’s hard sometimes to remember that I’m no slouch myself. Confidence isn't exactly my forte but I fake it well. I’ve worked with my parents’ real estate firm catering to the rich and famous for years and I'm now one of the top agents in the country. Blue Enterprises is the name of our firm, which is also my name. Blue. Alana Blue. And now I'm on TV, the star of Selling in New York.
But every family has secrets. Damion's does and mine does as well.
That's why I have the TV show I didn't really want.
Nothing is real.
Except him. Damion. He's real. So is my past with him. But it's the past.
Then one day I get called to a meeting by the studio head, it's all very secretive.
Because it's not the studio at all, or actually, it is. Because his family owns everything.
The meeting is with him. It's with Damion West.
And Lord help me, he's now sexier, and more arrogant than ever.
Also it turns out that what Damion wants from me isn't as simple as a real estate contract.
But it's a contract all right.
I listened to Protege King in audiobook format and loved it. The story grabbed me immediately, the main characters were so interesting and the narration animated. This is a second chance romance and I loved every minute. The narrators were perfect in this dual POV contemporary romance novel. The chemistry between the hero and heroine is explosive, and the story is well written. I would recommend this audiobook for lovers of contemporary romance and this format as a very enjoyable way to experience this book. I am voluntarily submitting this review after listening to an advanced complementary copy of this audiobook thanks to Netgalley and Tantor Audio.
Cliffhanger. Be prepared.
I love the start to this series. Alana is a heroine I can respect and like. She has not had a fair life for the past 10 years and I’m intrigued to find out more to the story.
Damion seems like a hero who is going to come in and save the day for her, but he’s not completely innocent in things. His own father is targeting Alana because of Damion’s love for her. The one thing I wasn’t a fan of was the constant mention of him with other women.
The author did a great job of getting me hooked and wanting to find out how this is all going to play out.
