She thinks she’s a normal college Senior. He knows she’s anything but.
Ariya Adams has no idea she’s descended from blood so powerful and rare that her life is infinitely more precious than any ordinary woman’s—especially to James Rymer.
James enters her life and stirs up feelings she can’t explain. He becomes a part of her world almost overnight, but Ariya senses he’s hiding something, and she’s determined to figure out what it is.
When “normal” becomes a thing of the past and fantasy enters Ariya’s reality, she’s soon faced with dangerous revelations, the least of which is that everyone she loves has been keeping secrets from her. With a paranormal evil she’s only beginning to comprehend threatening her and her friends, Ariya will have to choose between duty and love. Through it all, she’ll learn to never underestimate the power of blood.
Read the series fans are calling “captivating,” “page-turning” and “not your typical vampire story.”
"Protected (Ariya Adams Trilogy, #1)" Reviews
Protected is book 1 in the Ariya Adams trilogy from author Anna Applegate. This is my first read from this author, and I can't wait to explore the rest of this world that has been created within this book. This read is filled with mystery, suspense & romance and to top it off, it's got it's share of paranormal beings! This was a different take on vampire/ werewolves read that I normally read but none of the less I really enjoyed this book. This is a well developed & written book with amazing characters and a compelling storyline that leave you reeling with twists and turns.
The mystery surrounding this book, keeps you hooked, and then when secrets were then revealed it made you, even more, hooked all for the pure fact you wanted to find out how things carried on. These characters are written wonderfully by our author, from the start you can't help but really connect with Ariya, it is then made even better with the introduction to James, who you immediately connect with and want to find out more behind the mysterious gorgeous boy! But it isn't just the main characters to make this read that even more satisfying, but the secondary characters that are within along telling Ariya’s journey. Each of these characters brought depth to this book and each had their own thing that made each of them connectable and lovable, but I think it was James who stole the show. I live how in the beginning his protective nature was brought out in the simplest of ways yet the most memorable. They have an undeniable attraction between each other but something is holding James back that little bit more. I loved the dynamic between Ariya and others in this book too, the friendship she has with Caroline is one everyone would wish to have and have Caroline as a best friend, the flirty and back and forth banter with Riley, all of these are relationships that impact this read just that little bit more!
I can't wait to delve deeper into this world, I can already tell will be a brilliant one, and this was an incredible start to this series!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review by the Author and the “Lovers of Paranormal” Group on Goodreads.com
I thought the story started a little too slow and too many things were repeated over and over. However, once I got further into the book the story started flowing nicely.
The story is about vampires and werewolves but it was more focused on the characters and their personalities and not about them being vampires. I like the characters and the "feel" of their personalities and they developed.
The book starts slow but give it time and you will enjoy it!
This is the first book I have read from this author and will not be the last. I love a good paranormal romance but this talented author exceeded all my expectations. This is the first book in the Ariya Adams Trilogy. I was hooked on the first page. These characters kept me up all hours of the night. It only took me a little over a day to devour this incredible book.
