I was in a reading funk, for months and months. For some reason everything I picked up, I couldn’t get into. That is, until I read the debut release by Amanda Lee Dixon, Protect Forever. Not knowing what to expect going in, I was so blown away that this is the first book in her Peak Valley series. Needless to say, I am hooked and can’t wait for more from this small town. This book right off the bat reminded me of Virgin River. Dawn is running from something in her past, but that secret is kept tight with her and I found myself trying to pull together different reasons she’s be running, only to be completely wrong and amazed at how well this story developed.
I simply love Clint and Dawn. Clint was so swoon worthy right from the start and I fell in love with him immediately. I love his character and how he treats her. He is such a surprising Hero in this story I just didn’t anticipate. Dawn is strong and determined, but still fragile from her past. Their chemistry is so innocent at the beginning but develops into something that was simply a Netflix worthy mini-series!
Bravo Amanda on your debut and I can’t wait for the 2nd book in the series, Fight Forever. I always love following series when authors give you glimpses of the other books, so I am hoping that is what we get in the upcoming Fight Forever release.

“Do I owe you… for your help?”
If I thought he was scary before, I saw a
glimpse of something nightmares are made of flash across his face.
“Like dinner?” he asks, raising an eyebrow. He looks angry.
“Yeah,” I reply just above a whisper.
“I don’t know what kind of guy you think I am, but I won’t twist your arm to have dinner with me.”
My stomach drops at his words.
“That’s not what I meant.”
“But you thought it,” he retorts, tucking the
rag back into his pocket, and with one long stride he is standing right in front of me. I have to tilt my head back to see his strong jaw as it clenches.
My heart begins to pound, and I’m at a loss for words. I never was good with them.
“You aren’t the first to think the worst and, you won’t be the last.”
