Publisher's Summary

Zane doesn't do relationships and Connor is definitely the kind of guy who does... 

Criminal defense attorney Zane Devereaux is on the verge of having everything he's worked his entire life for. He's on track to become his firm's youngest managing partner and he has enough money in the bank to ensure he'll never have to be at the mercy of anyone ever again. He's left his past exactly where it belongs and refuses to look back. And he sure as hell isn't going to risk a repeat of his former mistakes by letting someone as sweet, sexy and endearingly vulnerable as Connor Talbot into his life. His bed maybe, but not his life. 

Connor Talbot has no regrets about serving his country, even if it did cost him more then he'd imagined. Two years after an IED took his leg and left him with permanent brain damage, Connor is still struggling to put his life back together, but he's managed to find a makeshift family in Seattle that helps ease the pain of losing his own at a young age. Unfortunately, a string of bad relationships and an abusive ex have taken their toll on Connor and he's given up on finding the lifelong partner he'd always envisioned he'd have. But a chance encounter with a man he has absolutely nothing in common with except for an intense, white-hot chemistry has him thinking that maybe a no strings, physical relationship is exactly what's called for. 

What begins as two men meeting each other's needs between the sheets turns into something neither one was prepared for but the wounds of the past run deep and both men will have to decide if a future together will cost them too much or if what they could have together is worth fighting for. 

Trigger Warning: This book contains references to abuse that may be disturbing for some readers. 

Although this book is part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. No cliffhangers.

Stupendous

Sloane's characters seem to jump off the pages. He sucks you in right from the beginning and you hang on every word. I can barely stand to stop reading or listening as is the case here because Michael Pauly brings each character that Sloane has created to life!

Hard to say Goodbye

I absolutely loved this series. Sloan Kennedy ended the series perfectly with this last book. Sloane did it again with the different twist in the story. I'm going to miss these characters; and as always Michael Pauley did an awesome job.

Absolutely AMAZING!!

I love this entire series and this book is amazing. Zane and Connor are so hot together but beyond that they have an incredible connection and love. Love watching Zane grow throughout, he is so caring & loving with Connor and it just gets better & better as the story goes on. They are truly meant to be and both are incredibly giving and caring. The narrator is spectacular all throughout and pulled me right in to the story. Love the epilogue!!

Amazing story!

The struggle these guys go through is real. People go through this stuff all the time, relationships with a veteran or someone with a prosthetic due to any traumatic injury is hard. Loved the story and loved the audio book.

Wonderful

This was a wonderful ending to a wonderful series. The overlapping of the different people is brilliantly done. Truly a wonderful series full of life like troubles and emotions and alive with love, anger and even hate. I would recommend this author and series to all.
Michael Pauley gets 5 stars for a great narration. He reads these as if he is living it. There is just enough slight inflection of his voice for the character change . Marvelous !!
Once again Wonderful!!

great story, but not a stand alone

As others have stated, this is a great end to this series, but in order to get the most out of this book, It is better to read the one before it, "Saving Ren." You meat Zane and Connor in that book, and though they are just secondary characters in that one, events follow on from ren, Jagger and Decklin's story into this one. Sloane Kennedy is definitely one of those author's who has the ability to make her readers fall in love with their characters and want the best for them. That may sound crazy, vut that's how I feel. (smile) I hope that more of the protectors series will eventually be available on Audible as the fourth book as well as others in the series connects with the Berretti security series.

Ahhhh...just the book you need to listen to

There is nothing better than a fantastic male/male book, a sexy voice to read it to you and the action needed to keep you enthralled. I love every word this author puts to paper and Michael Pauley is my go to narrator. I can't wait for more from these two.
