The Protector Final - 700H 

  The Protector Sizzling Miami #3 by Jessie G.

GGR-LB Blurb

There was a time when Master Saul Alvarez filled his days fighting and his nights teaching willing subs the pleasure of his whip. His compassionate understanding of the masochist mind makes him the most sought after professional sadist in the Miami BDSM community. Neither role invites long term relationships, but he’s comfortable with his solitary existence until he is charged with guarding Durango’s prized whore. One look into those terror filled eyes has him vowing to risk it all to save the beautiful man.

 Javier Escardo had been praying for death, but never expected the stone cold killer he got in response. One glimpse into those sinful eyes reveals not only the promise of retribution, but a reason to live. Eight years later, free and mostly sane, Javier is determined to take what belongs to him. Saul’s heart. Through hell and back, through layers of pain and shifting realities, that one truth has remained firm. His protector needs saving and he can’t do it alone.

 Hidden beneath the public persona, Kyle Jensen is a man who craves to be invisible without being insignificant. He longs to find a Master who will see his need to be taken over without abusing him and a lover who will care about him beyond the sexual games. It isn’t until he encounters the smoldering combination of Saul and Javier that he realizes it was never supposed to be just one partner at all. Can two battered hearts be mended by the love of a third? Kyle becomes the light to their darkness, and he’s willing to risk his heart for theirs, but when the past threatens Saul, will Javier’s sacrifice destroy them all?

 Author’s Note: The Protector deals with issues of sexual abuse and forced prostitution. While these acts are not detailed on the page, there are many references to them and the ongoing fight to heal and overcome. This book should not be read by anyone who would be adversely affected by these references.

Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I'd begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: To be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it's a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With two published books and counting, it's been amazing to have made this dream my reality.
I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics and happily ever after. I'm a lover of strong secondary characters and series filled with families, biological or chosen. All are themes you'll find throughout my books.

I absolutely loved the second book of this series and found that I wasn't missing anything for not reading the first one, so I eagerly signed up for this one!  I enjoyed this book but was definitely missing not having read book one.  There were references to other characters which left me floundering to see the connections. That being said I love these characters!  

Saul is bending under the weight of his relationship with Javier. He has to keep him safe and has a very regimented way of keeping their lives going. Javier is wounded but he's ready to start living again and Saul is holding him back from taking control of his life. Both men love each other and but find themselves missing a big part of themselves. In walks Kyle, the porn star. He sees Saul and Javier in a diner and marvels at their connection. They are exactly what he wants and when they meet at a club later he feels they may be the answer to his desires. Kyle is the answer to Saul and Javier's relationship as well. He comes in with no preconceived notions and allows each man to be himself. He allows Saul to finally see that Javier is stronger, and for Saul to let out his inner dominant.

The three still have to deal with life threatening circumstances and turn to their friends for help. This is where reading book one would have helped me with the background. The climax to the book comes when Javier and Saul's life gets thrown back in time and how the three make it through together.

I'm giving this book 4 stars but it probably would have been closer to 5 if I had read the first book.

  1. Thank you so much for hosting my guys and for that great review. The deeper I get into this series, the harder it's going to be to call them standalone books. There will definitely be a follow up book for Saul, Javier and Kyle. They are all at a new chapter that none of them could have predicated and, as Javier grows and heals, so will their relationship. I can't wait to write that :)

    Good luck to all who enter the raffle. I'll be checking back regularly, so if anyone has any questions about the book or the series, please ask.

  2. i love this series..keep up the great stories jessie
