Book Review: 'Double Protection' by Selina Coffey
British author Selina Coffey is a romance writer who lives happily in London with her husband and her son - a hopeless romantic and her many books attest to that passion.
Selina takes chances – blending at times inappropriate bonding with crime, but her writing is so on target that she is able to not only use strange twists well but allows them to enhance he erotica of her novels – a trait for which she is especially known. Three unlikely characters – a college student Allison Robb, her Econ professor Daniel Carlson, and a hot policeman Hank.
The synopsis of DOBLE PROTECTION offers a succinct version of this wild romantic venture – ‘How can something so wrong, feel so right? Everyone told me to get a fresh start and enjoy college life. Well, I'm enjoying it even more than I thought I would...Professor Carlson is sexy, young and obviously very smart... and he wants me! I know teachers and students aren't supposed to date, but I think that's what made him even more irresistible. Being with him helped me forget about the pain of my past. He made me happy, until I saw something that I shouldn’t and now my life’s in danger....Carlson vows to protect me, but he alone isn’t enough.’
Selina handles the touchy subject of a ménage a trois well and she has a gift she uses very well indeed. Grady Harp, January 18
