Protector Of Convenience (Rogue Protectors Book 2) by Victoria Paige 

Description

A marriage of convenience will protect her life, but will it protect her heart?

Love is a lie and families don’t last.
They die a brutal death.
Ariana Ortega knows this more than anyone.
With her brother’s enemies stalking her, she contemplates a deal with the devil.
Until the man who betrayed her returns with an offer that is hard to resist.

Love is real and family is everything.
They’d die to protect each other.
Migs Walker knows this more than anything.
When the life of the woman he craves is threatened, he’s ready to make a deal with the devil.
And protect her at all costs.

As the cartel escalates into violence, ghosts from the past and specters in the present collide.
Unless Migs can convince Ariana to trust the love between them and around them, history will repeat itself.

* Fast-paced romantic suspense that can be read as a standalone.

Book 2 Protector Of Convenience 

My Review …… 
Ariana is or was the sister to a crime boss!! Now he’s dead, she’s got no one, her business is in tatters, nobody is returning her phone calls, and being told by so called “friends” she’s no longer welcome, has brought Ariana to her knees. 
What this experience taught her was that friends and money were temporary. 
Ariana had to rely on herself to survive. 
Her shoulders pulled back and her chin inched up. 
She was an Ortega. 
She had the blood of a Sinaloan. 
They were survivors. 
Getting to her feet, she padded to her office. Her desk was the only remaining furniture in this space. Most of the drawers had been emptied. Her business was computerized and left little paper trail by using a cloud service. 
Pulling open the bottom drawer, a brief smile touched the corners of her lips as she lifted the comfortable flats she kept there. Putting them on, she walked back to the reception area and took one last look at the surroundings. The movers would come tomorrow and transfer the rest to storage as Ariana figured out how to rebuild her life. For now, she was leaving the old one behind. She walked out the door and left the stilettos where they lay. “Excerpt from Protector of Convenience”
She’s forced to swallow her pride and ask a favour of the man who wants her as a trophy wife! She’s not a fan of his, but her friends daughter has been taken, and unless something is done, Leah will never be seen again!! Getting into “bed” with a potential snake isn’t what Ariana wants to do, but there is nothing and no one else she can turn too!! 
Miguel “Migs” Alcantara Walker, is not a fan of desk jobs, paperwork or analyst’s but here he is…… 
But all of that is thrown to one side when he hears Ariana is in big trouble. 
He won’t let her down again!! 
So he throws the only thing he has into the ring, his protection. He’ll take her to his family home and protect her there. 
But family have a habit of Interfering, and they do, with hilarious results. 
(I loved his family and want to move in with them)  
A marriage of convenience to keep Ariana safe seemed like a good idea at the time, in fact Migs is definitely up for it, if he has his way Ariana would be a proper wife, but he’s agreed to a fake marriage with divorce at the end of it!! 
But trust between Migs and Ariana is going to take time. They might have a sizzling chemistry between them, but without trust that sizzle will eventually fizzle out!! 
Ariana I felt had a sheltered life, she knew what her brother was, she knew what he did, but I think he protected her from the ugly he had to deal with. And now he’s dead, she’s having to make hard choices. Her only option is to ask an old family friend to help, but that favour could backfire and cost Ariana more than she’s willing to pay! 
I got the impression that Migs didn’t want to leave Ariana, but was forced to abandon her to her fate (which at the moment is total financial and personal ruin!) it seemed like he was biding his time, then he was going back to see her. 
Is there something missing? Yes, there is mis time (they knew each other in the past, was this in the first book?) 
Do we find out about the past relationship between Ariana and Migs? (Yes we do, it was bodyguard/job, then friendship grew, nothing else, but the potential for more, until Ariana finds out Migs works for the CIA!!) 
The action kept going at quite a furious pace, lots going on, double crossings, mistrust and the ever present feeling of death!
