Publisher's Summary

For Landon Greene, managing the band Carter’s Creed is more than just a job. It also means being there to keep his brother safe. When someone begins sending threatening letters to Carter, Landon feels overwhelmed with the need to protect him. He’s relieved when new security is added, until he finds out that the person hired to protect his brother is the same man Landon has spent months trying to forget. Micah Hamilton recently moved back to Chicago to start his own security firm and to be closer to his best friend, Giovanni. He’s ready to leave his past as a Navy SEAL behind and settle into his new life, but his plans change when a friend calls and asks him for a favor. There’s no way Micah can refuse the request, even though he knows it will require him to face the one man he’s vowed to stay away from. Can Landon and Micah put their differences aside in time to save Carter or will their pride leave him at the mercy of a madman? Will they continue to resist the undeniable chemistry between them or will they take a chance and possibly find the greatest love they’ve ever known?  

Protecting the Soul is the third book in the Souls of Chicago series. It can be read as a standalone novel, but is best read as part of the series. 

This book contains sexually explicit materials and is only intended for adults 18 and older.

A Good Protector

This was book 3 in the "Souls of Chicago" series. This is a hot book cover Landon Greene is the manger of Carter's Creed and he is also Carter's older brother. When Carter begins getting stalker fan mail the recorder label hires some new security Micah Hamilton. Landon and Micah who is Giovanni's bestfriend also most hooked up and Caleb and Giovanni's bachelor party. Micah is a hot sexy former navy Seal who comes home after going through something horrible he comes home to start his own security firm. Turns out the letters have been causing Landon to have panic attacks he wasn't eating or sleeping and it was starting to show. This was a really good read and listen Micah and Landon have some hot chemistry when these two hook up all the way this time it was hot. As these two begin to spend more time with each other they find that they like spending time together, but both of them have demons in their past that haunt them. Turns out the stalker is not after Carter but Landon and when he tells them about the things in his past he feels so ashamed and that his family and friends won't forgive him Landon had an affair with one of his professor who turned out to be married although he broke up with the man Kyle and stalked him until he left school. Micah fell more in love with Landon he told him about his past as well he was an abused as a kid and ended up living with Giovanni and his family. I loved how the Greene opened up their heart and accepted Micah as one of their sons. When they figured out who was stalking Landon he was kidnapped and almost killed but Micah did what he had to do to protect his man. This was a really good read and a good edition to this series. This book was well written with no errors in grammar or spelling. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series. I really want to find out what's going on with Rocko.

Beyond Incredible!!

I absolutely love this story. I was thrilled to get Landon's story and I am so happy with his HEA. Micah and Landon are spectacular together, their chemistry is sizzling hot and they each give the other what they need. I love watching their relationship grow and how protective Micah is with Landon. They each have issues but they work through them together and have a great HEA that is so well deserved for both of these incredible men. I really hope the next book comes out in audio soon, I can't wait to listen to it. The narrator is absolutely amazing. He truly brings the story to life and makes you feel like yiu are right there with the characters.

Another great read by Annabella!!

If you enjoyed the first two, then this one will definitely not disappoint you. Although its the same style of writing, the story is completely different from the first two. The characters overlap a bit so that's nice. Story has some twists and turns but at the end it's HEA. Michael Pauley is simply amazing... once again! Many hot scenes... if you're into that??? Hell ya! ;)

I fell in love all over with Landon and Micah. I had read the book but discovered even more as I listened to this wonderful story. You connect so closely with the characters and really care about them. The vulnerability and strength on each is amazing. Another great addition to the series

This was so wonderful andI loved it!

First off I absolutely love Annabella Michaels books and I loved reading Landon and Micah's hea, yet listening to this on audiobook brought it to another level that just made even more fantastic.

One of the main reasons that I love listening to audiobooks is hearing an extremely talented narrator bring the story and the characters, that I love so much, to life. Michael Pauley did an absolutely amazing job at giving these characters that Annabella created to life in such a wonderful fashion. He was completely able to give me such an enjoyable experience that made me feel like even more a part of the story. He made me connect to them on a deeper level then if I was just reading the book.

I greatly enjoyed listening to this and finally hearing one of my favorite families brought to life and getting to experience that. I highly recommend listening to this and I also enjoyed following along with my ebook copy as I did.

Best of the Series So Far

Protecting the Soul is suspenseful and exciting. There are just enough twists and turns in the mystery without overshadowing the romance of Micah and Landon. This is a case of opposites attract in all the right ways. They each need different things from the other and aren’t afraid to ask. I enjoyed their chemistry and how they communicated what they wanted from each other.

As usual, Michael Pauley was delightful in his narration. He adds excitement to his voice during the suspenseful parts, and just the right amount of sexiness during the steamy parts.

Battling inner demons


I love the Greene family and this series of stories. In this story we meet Landon Greene.  Landon has spent his years since college taking care of everyone else, while hiding his darkest secrets from his family.  But just as his younger brother Carter’s music career is soaring, a stalker appears. Sparks fly when the head of security, Micah Hamilton is brought in to protect the band.  Micah and Landon have an intense connection, that both have been avoiding because of their past experiences.  Michael Pauley, the narrator brings Protecting the Soul to life.  From the intense sex scenes to the sorrow filled scenes of Micah’s past, he brings the words to life and brings you into the scene and makes you feel like you are right there with Landon, Micah and the rest of the band of characters.   I will definitely be revisiting this story again and again.
