Another superb book to add to the Protectors cannon

Redemption (The Protectors, Book 8)Redemption by Sloane Kennedy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t know how Sloane Kennedy does it. She consistently turns out books in this series which not only pack an emotional punch but which suck you into a unique exploration of MM romance.

While there are commonalities, this is a series after all, the relationships all have a unique element and experience which means you never feel like you’re reading a rehash.

In this one the trauma and suffering is almost too much but Sloane also knows just how far to push the reader before it would go into unpleasant territory.

I felt for Levi so much. What’s sadder is that there will be people out in the “real” world who have suffered in similar ways. The way his story and romance with Phoenix plays out is believable and realistic. It takes time to build up trust and it can be shattered so easily.

I loved this pairing, they were gentle, kind and supportive of each other and I loved that they talked! No annoying miscommunication between them to cause any dramady.

The crime element is well done, tight plotting keeps the tensions high until the explosive conclusion. I absolutely adore these books. The sneak peak at Vincent’s story left me begging for more.
And yet again the book is graced with an amazing cover from Jay Aheer featuring Wander Aguiar photography.

Another thoroughly enjoyable addition to the Protectors stable

Revelation (The Protectors, #7)Revelation by Sloane Kennedy

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t know how Sloane Kennedy manages to keep up the enjoyment factor in all her Protectors series but she does.

The basic premise follows a pattern, one of Ronan’s men is given a job to either keep someone safe, or to take them out, but how that journey takes place is always a headrush of hot alpha men finding their true love (or loves on occasion!) in a place where they didn’t expect it.

On route there will be denial, some conflict, either internal through fears or doubt, or from a deadly enemy, Anand there will be bags and bags of sexual tension.

But, while the basic premise may be the same, each story has its own unique spark which makes it fresh and the final payoff is always earned and a just reward for the drama and angst that’s gone before it.

This one had an interesting pair of main characters, both with similar trust issues but those issues coming from quite different places. Ethan found his strength in Cain’s unwavering support, Cain found compassion and love in Ethan’s gentle touch.

And, as is often the case, we get a glimpse of potential new characters whose stories are to come and I cannot wait to read Vincent St James’ and, I believe from hints, pairing with Nathan.

Another great read which does exactly what I want it to do – entertain me 🙂 and a gorgeous cover to drool over.

My favourite one yet

Renewing the Soul (Souls of Chicago, #4)Renewing the Soul by Annabella Michaels

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Finally we get Rocko’s story and discover the painful upbringing which hides behind the outwardly brash and sexually confident drummer.

I loved this one, it had limited angst, more a case of Rocko going back to his roots as Riley, having arrested twice when a drugs overdose put him at rock bottom. There were no annoying misunderstandings or plot points at 70% just to ramp up the tension.

Lachlan was a perfect partner for Riley, steady, willing to be patient and strong, having dealt with his own demons after the death of his brother, captured by insurgents and killed while serving in the Royal Air Force.
I’d been wanting Lachlan’s story since we found out more about him in Mitch and Landon’s book.

This one was a delight, as two men who’d been wounded found the perfect partner to help them restore their souls and give them the strength to live each day in the best possible way.

The sex is gorgeously written, switching between stupendously hot and heart-meltingly sweet, these two knew how to turn on the tension and the heat. The poolside escapade was probably my favourite.

Great addition to the series and now I’m intrigued by the lead in to book five featuring Landon’s right hand man Akio and one of the many Greene family members.
