I had a problem with Aiden. His character was someone who used his looks to his advantage. I didn't see that. I don't feel his character was developed enough. When he was upset that someone looked at Devlin with lust in their eyes, he treated them rudely and held on to it like a dog with a bone.
"She laughed. “I didn’t have many good times back then, but I
remember those with fondness……
“Oh, sweetie.” Mick reached across the table and patted her
Oh Jesus. Aiden tried hard not to let his annoyance show. “Ahem. You
know, I was telling Miranda that I don’t really recall any Sub Current
tunes. I definitely remember The Cure, Joy Division and Echo & the
Bunnymen. Actually Depeche Mode was my favorite.”
Paul tilted his head and narrowed his eyes in Aiden’s direction.
“Is that so?”
I liked the character of Devlin right from the start. Even while being dumped he was a "proper gentleman". Assassins are usually cold in personality and they never get too close to anyone. I would not say that about Devlin. He tried to maintain a relationship prior to getting the new assignment, and the conflict within him about turning Aiden over to Ora added depth to his character.
The interaction between the main characters and the sub characters was something I did not expect to read. Dev’s relationship with his brash friend, Miranda is a great example of this. I found sweet moments that he had with her with no words needed.
Miranda is a kick-ass and don't bother with taking names kinda woman. I loved how she protected Devlin and did not apologize for it. She had Aiden handcuffed, ankle cuffed, strapped with a bomb and when he was tired and wanted rest she knocked him out. I almost wish she was into having a same sex relationship, I would love to see her get together with the U.S. Marshall.
I didn't feel as though I was invested in any of the characters but it was definitely a good read. I wouldn't mind reading it a few more times.
I received this book for an honest review.
First time reading from the author.
Once I started reading I was tied up into wanting to know their story. So I couldn't stop reading till I got all the info the book was willing to give me. I loved the book, thought it has a nice steady pace to keep me reading.
Miranda is a friend of Devlin's and she doesn't trust Aiden. She keeps handcuffing, ankle cuffing and strapping bombs on his chest. I was like wow she's not taken any chances with Aiden. Had me laughing at them couple of times. Aiden and Devlin's chemistry clicks right off the bat for the two of them. Aiden and Devlin have their hot steamy moment and didn't seem to want to really come up for air. They both had that itch that needed to be scratch for awhile. Love at first sight and hooked for life. Will want to read more books from the author. Loved their writing.
Thank you for letting me read the first part of the series of Protekt.
