This is the second book in the Isthmus Alliance Series, if you haven't read Unexpected Angel (Dylan and Tasha's story) yet, I highly recommend you do so before reading Unexpected Protector (Tommy and Holly's story).
This book picks up where the first one left off with Holly lying in a hospital bed and none of us knowing if she will live or die.
Tommy an ex marine, now a cop (on leave pending an investigation), and Dylan's best friend finds himself at a loss. He really doesn't know Holly (Tasha's best friend), but since he found her bleeding to death on the sidewalk and he shot her attacker, he can't seem to leave her hospital bedside. No one including himself can understand why, yet everyday he sits there and talks to her, rubs lotion on her arms, and prays that she will wake up.
Holly can hear Tommy, but has no clue who he is or why he's sitting with her daily. Holly has not had an easy life and always seems to take the wrong path. She chose drugs to dull the pain, but this path caused her to betray her best friend Tasha and almost causes both of their deaths.
Once Holly wakes up and learns who Tommy is and remembers what her actions almost did, she decides that she needs to get her act together and since Tommy is willing, she accepts his help.
I am not going to get into full details, but please note that this book is AWESOME!!! All of the characters are into light BDSM, they are more like family than friends, all have their share of problems, but will ALWAYS be there for each other.
This book has just enough of everything...HOT, HOT, Alpha Dudes, kinky sex scenes, tear inducing scenes (YES, I cried), scenes that made me want to scream, scenes that made me want to reach through my kindle and bitch-slap someone, tender-loving scenes, some moments I didn't see coming, and reader-grabbing scenes.
Tommy, Dylan, Zeke, Jeff, Tasha, Holly, and Mary will stay with me for a long, long, time and I can't wait to read Zeke, Jeff, and Mary's stories.
Reader beware this is a HUGH cliffhanger, but so, so, worth the read.
I LOVE Sloan Johnson and can't wait for the next book in this series.
Dylan, Tommy, and Zeke are so sexy amazing... If only they existed for real...sigh.
I'm not giving a minute of this or the first story away...you just need to read it you will not be appointed. It's not hard core BDSM, just for the sake of BDSM (which I enjoy as well), but a real relationship, love, trust, honesty, angst, pain, sorrow, make mistakes and forgive to love even more...
I really like the interaction between Holly and Tommy. I like how he never was like "I'm the Dom, I'm in charge, you do what I want, not what you want." I liked that he asked her opinions and her wants and needs to really listened to her. I liked that Holly opened herself up, but didn't change over night. I hate when in a book, someone messes up bad, and the other person is telling them to forgive themselves and they're just like "OK, I forgive myself." It was nice to see the progression.
OK, Now for what I didn't like. "Throbbing core." It's one thing to have a character think of it as that, but it's entirely different for the man to say the words out loud. I was waiting for her to laugh.
Overall, I loved the book and cannot wait for more!
I'm not going to lie, I was disappointed in the end. I don't mind a cliffhanger. They usually leave me thinking about the book and watching for the next. This story ended with so many questions and all of the characters relationships seem up in the air. I am left hoping for a speedy release of the next in the Isthmus Alliance series!
How Holly grew from that scared once junky to a confident woman ready to start her life. And Tommy was there every step to help her, protect her and love her.
They were on the road to happier times. They were making amends and forgiving themselves and others for past mistakes. Then bam! We're left wanted more. Never saw the cliffhanger coming.
After that ending I'm glad I started this series recently since I don't have to wait long for the next book. I need to know what happens and can't wait to read Zeke's story.
Sloan Johnson writes sexy, hot books that grab you and keep you wanting more.I look forward to more from her.
