[Review] Overprotected by Jennifer Laurens + Giveaway

by Jennifer Laurens
Publication Date: April 29th, 2011
Paperback, 243 pages
Publisher: Grove Creek Publishing

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.


My Thoughts:

This is my first time reading Jennifer Laurens book I got this from one of her twitter giveaways. I got instantly hooked while reading it! The story is engaging and really keeps me reading throughout the whole chapter. First I thought of this book while reading its synopsis is that it’s just your typical High Society Princess and Body Guard who fell in love with each other end of story. But I was wrong for me it was beautifully written and the characters and plot is really good. You may realize that the plot maybe something familiar but in the end you’ll be surprise of what the ending is. It was really an enjoyable read for me and its really great that I get to read this wonderful story.

This book has made me feel that it is always possible to be in love with someone no matter who they are; no matter what they’re position in life is, even if your parents forbids it. When it comes to love you’ll do anything just to protect your love ones. You can do everything just to protect them but when it’s you who gets Overprotected you’ll feel that you need air and thus makes you rebel from the ones that only thinks of your safety.

It always intrigues me what it’s like to be living on a high society, but then I always think that I might not survive it for the fact that freedom is one thing I really like. Freedom of speech is one thing I practice and I believe everybody is entitled to their own opinion. If I ever live in a high society like Ashlyn maybe I’ll be timid about my thoughts just because everyone is looking out for what are you going to say, and if you’re going to make mistake.

Plot wise it is really great the story of Ashlyn and Collin is one of few story that I won’t forget. Her Daddy hired her worst enemy as her bodyguard; Collin is bound to protect her. Will they find each other in the midst of hating each other with what happened with their past? Will Collin be able to protect Ashlyn from the threats that even her dad cannot see?

All in all this is a great book, one book I tell you not to miss reading! A story that I really wish I was part of. I want to say kudos to Jennifer Laurens for capturing my heart with this wonderful story.

  1. Hello! I'm dakotagirl16. I love your review. I was interested in Overprotected before, but now know for sure that I want to read it. Thanks for the chance to win!

  2. Hi there! 🙂 I read your review and I have to say – I'm curious as to how Jennifer made this one different. We get lots of YA books with rich, pampered, popular girls who fall in love with someone that their parents don't approve of. Great review! PS. I can't seem to follow you guys. I've tried 5 times now. Something is wrong with blogger. :S

  3. It's cool to have a body guard. Sometimes I think living on a high society, being a princess would be great. But, as you said, there's no freedom and you are in the spotlight. I'll be timid too if I were in that situation. Anyway, Thank you for the giveaway!

  4. Thank you for great giveaway! 🙂 Trailer is amazing and I think, that theme of this book is different like others 🙂 I am really glad for this.

  5. Just wanna say thanks for the great giveaway Mr. Merlino Atanacio, Ms. Maricar Operario Mari and Ms. Era Penera u are all awesomehahaha :))Merlino ALAM NA! LOCAL giveaway to
