Review by Fern
She can cover him with one hand tied behind her back. Maybe two.
Hauberk Protection, Book 2
Sam Watson excels at keeping other people safe. Now a stalker is targeting him, but so what? A few doctored photos and a couple threatening phone calls are no big deal. He can watch his own back. Then again, the view from behind the sexy spitfire assigned to protect him isn’t so bad…
Rosalinda Ramos has managed to keep her attraction to Hauberk Security’s owner tightly under wraps. It’s just as well he doesn’t know. One slip—in the bedroom or on the job—will cost her her heart and her career, so she’s got only one thing on her mind. Protect Sam, whether he wants it or not.
The stakes—and the heat—rise exponentially when she discovers Sam belongs to an exclusive sex club—one she must investigate for potential suspects. Suddenly she finds herself immersed in a world that pushes her boundaries.
Sam delights in leading Rosie deep into his sexual shadows—until they go one game too far. Making him wonder if he can allow the woman he loves to take a bullet for him.
Warning: May incite the reader’s protective instinct, forcing her to throw herself on the nearest man.
When it comes to body guards, mystery, and a sizzling heat factor, everyone should be so fortunate to have their very own Personal Protection. This is a story that has it all–incredible characters that are not only well developed, but absolutely hilarious, an intriguing whodunit plot that will keep you guessing, and a whole lot of mind blowing sex.
As someone that appreciates the value of a good belly laugh, I was tickled pink with this story. Sam and Rosalinda are inner snarks, but they are equal opportunity detractors, even when it comes to admitting their own personal failings. Listening in on their inner dirty thoughts and fantasies is only usurped by getting an eagle eye view of their deliciously uproarious dark senses of humor (a Lisa Simpson hair reference is absolutely brilliant). Leah Braemel writes some of the best dialogue out there, and you’ll laugh out loud time and again.
The introduction of the BDSM lifestyle was well done, and added to the already combustible chemistry between Sam and Rosalinda. I really enjoyed the progression in their relationship, as well as the catalysts that push them apart only to bring them back together again. You’ll bounce back and forth as the story plays out, and by the time you reach the end of the ride, you’ll be one-hundred percent sa-tis-fied.
I loved Personal Protection, and plan on purchasing the first in the series, as well as any future installments Ms. Braemel has to offer. I would suggest that anyone with a devious sense of humor and a fondness for BDSM do the same. You won’t be disappointed.
