What I’m Talking About:
The saga to find Orrin (Cullen’s dad) continues in this fast-paced continuation of the Sons of Texas series. Seriously. Find. Him! I want Orrin to get a HEA, too!!! Could it be the mousy doctor???
Enough with projecting my own needs as a reader.
I think I liked The Protector better than the first book in the series, The Hero. I liked Cullen and Mia better as a couple because they felt more balanced—they could both take care of themselves.
Both Cullen and Mia have demons. What really pushed me forward when reading was the next squishy middle I’d run across. You guys know what I’m talking about. The hard-core military that project the image of calm, cool, collectedness who show vulnerability.
The Russian involvement and the way the series arc played out in The Protector, I’m champing at the bit for the third book in the series, The Legend, up for preorder & releasing June 27th.
My Rating: A- Enjoyed A Lot
About the Book:
When Marine Force Recon captain Cullen Loughman learns that his father’s been kidnapped, he will do whatever it takes to find him. In order to achieve his mission, Cullen will need to team up with the best of the best—someone who just happens to be the most stunning woman he’s ever laid eyes on…
This isn’t the first rodeo for ex—Air Force pilot Mia Carter. Still, Cullen’s bad-boy good looks and charm are distracting her from duty. . .and it appears that the feeling is mutual. As Mia and Cullen make their descent into a dark, dangerous world, their attraction reaches the boiling point. But is their desire worth the risk when a ruthless enemy is waiting in the wings—or will their Lone Star love conquer all?
