Haunted by his time in Iraq, former soldier Schwartz Patton goes off the grid, retreating deep into Montana’s untamed wilderness. Now, ten years into his self-imposed solitude, his brother tracks him down and asks for a favor. A woman is in danger, and she needs help...and Schwartz is the only one who can protect her.
Designer-loving city girls like Janelle Keebler don't belong in the wilderness. Unless, of course, they're witnesses to a murder by their psycho drug-trafficking ex-husbands. Still, Janelle can't help the immediate physical response she has to her sexy-as-sin protector that leaves her wanting more than she could have ever imagined. Even if he does make terrible coffee...
Every word, every touch, every kiss ignites a need Schwartz thought he’d lost forever. He can't stop the desperate attraction simmering between him and Janelle, even if he wanted to. Even if it means it could get them both killed.
I know when I read a book by Tawna Fenske I am going to get some laughs, some romance, a couple eye rolling moments, and over all a good book to pass the afternoon or night with. Protector For Hire had all of those things and didn’t disappoint. On a side note, if you haven’t read this series from the start you can get away without missing too much but you would understand some of the histories and dynamics of the group if you began by reading the first book.
I have wanted to know about the reclusive Swartz since I started this series and he was honestly kind of like I pictured him in my mind, hard outside but a soft and warm center on the inside. There is a reason for his seclusion and as a wife of a former military member I felt for him because I know that is always a huge fear for anyone going into a war zone. Yeah I am not saying what that is because I want you to read it for yourself. I liked Janelle’s character as well, she was what Swartz needed in his life even if he did fight his feelings.
Overall Protector For Hire was good for some laugh out loud moments, those eye rolls I told you about (but they weren’t a bad thing I promise), a feeling that love can help heal old wounds, both physical and emotional, and that everyone deserves a little happiness in their life.
