Title: The Protector (Sizzling Miami #3)
Author Name: Jessie G.
Publication Date & Length: February 13, 2015 – 325pgs

Synopsis

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. Seven 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 Jansen 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.

So there was a part in this book that had my jaw dropping and I was honestly shocked that Kyle did not run away as fast as he could from this situation..
Let me explain why and I will try to do it without giving away any spoilers. So if someone told me before we even started a ménage.. “yes let me dream that would ever happen lol” anyway that I would need too know I would never be as important as one of the other person in this ménage and he would also be there more for that person than he could ever be there for me.. Yea no thanks to that! That part did stop me up and I almost did not go on because yes I understood what Javier had been through was horrible and I feel horrible for saying this but at least to me it seemed like everyone was babying him instead of honestly helping him. So when I say this for a ménage to truly work for me all three people involved in it need to be treated and cared for equally and it really too me awhile to actually feel like that was happening in this book. I am glad I kept going because the way everything happened with this book and the way eventually Saul opens up more I really did love reading those parts.
So going back to Javier.. Why did no one get him help and what he does at the end and after who almost pays the ultimate price with his life then the next day he is just forgiven. That was one of those really moments to me also.
So this is another one of those times I hate to say this because I really did feel so bad for Javier after everything he had been through but for me at least Saul and Kyle made more sense together then all three of them for most of this book. But by the end I did like them as a ménage so please don’t get me wrong it just took a long time for me to get there..
You get a whole lot of action in this book and angst plus the steam was so hot! You also see a lot of the characters from previous books in this series. I will say I am so excited for the next book to see what happens with Owen and Chris also the other characters.

So all together I really liked this book but there were just a few things I had a hard time working my head around.

I would recommend this book!

AuthorBio

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.
