    Arggghhh I have no one to blame but myself As much as I liked Tex, I thought this novel sucked the big one It was the same rehash as the other ones the same sex, the same I love you and marry me crap, and the same rehash of all the previous couples and how they met, and what each of their woman went thru The only thing different this round were the names of the H h He s of course sex on a stick, and her just the plain jane like all the other females And heaven forbid the starring couple Arggghhh I have no one to blame but myself As much as I liked Tex, I thought this novel sucked the big one It was the same rehash as the other ones the same sex, the same I love you and marry me crap, and the same rehash of all the previous couples and how they met, and what each of their woman went thru The only thing different this round were the names of the H h He s of course sex on a stick, and her just the plain jane like all the other females And heaven forbid the starring couple not meet the other couples or not share the bed in one of their basements I have no intention of reading the next novel in the series which is about each couple two years later I couldn t care less about any of them now, two, five, or ten years later I just want off this shitty merry go round As for the stalker who s been following Mel A total yawn fest, as is the reason for the stalking Tex being able to use his computer skills to help all the other couples, what a shocker he couldn t catch the stalker who destroyed his truck parked right outside Mel s apartment Yes, sarcasm

    The most anticipated book in the SEAL of Protection series is Tex s book, Protecting Melody The reason it is the most anticipated is because Tex has been through everything with everyone since book one He is actually the hero in all the books because his behind the scenes magic is what saved lives As a huge fan of the series, I couldn t wait for Tex to get his book Of course Stoker had to put it towards the end Most are probably wondering, Does it live up to the hype I m here to say tha The most anticipated book in the SEAL of Protection series is Tex s book, Protecting Melody The reason it is the most anticipated is because Tex has been through everything with everyone since book one He is actually the hero in all the books because his behind the scenes magic is what saved lives As a huge fan of the series, I couldn t wait for Tex to get his book Of course Stoker had to put it towards the end Most are probably wondering, Does it live up to the hype I m here to say that it does I m not going to rewrite the synopsis aka blurb, and I m not going to give spoilers Sorry people, you are just going to have to suffer the suspense and read the book I will say that there is an air of mystery that surrounds Tex Who is this guy that is basically everyone s lifeline Some of the mystery is ripped away and we get to know Tex a littleThis is shown through his POV of the time when he was helping Fiona through her panic attack at the mall That was a big moment for them and it created a bond with them Seeing his vulnerability and his fear that he couldn t help her, it added so muchdimension to his character Tex s love interest is Melody If you thought Tex was a mystery, Melody is an even bigger one She has a good reason too I like Melody for Tex She seems to understand Texthan anyone On some aspects she understands himthan his SEAL family We know that he loves Wolfe and the gang but they don t know the emotional side of Tex that Melody gets to see The romance seems fast paced in this book but you have to remember that they have known each other for over 6 months Sure they just met face to face but they have known each other longer It s not an insta love like in other books I was left in suspense towards the end You are not quite sure who did it and when you find out you are doing a double take Stoker sets the reader up very well for this one The suspense also takes an emotional turn It left me needing some Kleenex This book and this book series have not disappointed I found myself eagerly awaiting each book Sadly there is only onebook in this series I wholeheartedly recommend that you read this series It has everything, romance, suspense, and alpha males I received a copy of the book, from the author, in exchange for a honest review

    I do believe this is my favorite book of the series Tex is the protector of the group of SEALs, always in the back ground but keeping an eye on everyone This time around he s found his own woman that needs his help Mel is on the run She has no where to go and no one to turn to when Tex shows up on the scene Together they try to piece out who is after her and why Pretty much kept me guessing close to the end of the book and when you figure it out it s going to throw you for a loop And ev I do believe this is my favorite book of the series Tex is the protector of the group of SEALs, always in the back ground but keeping an eye on everyone This time around he s found his own woman that needs his help Mel is on the run She has no where to go and no one to turn to when Tex shows up on the scene Together they try to piece out who is after her and why Pretty much kept me guessing close to the end of the book and when you figure it out it s going to throw you for a loop And even though I m a cat person too, you re gonna LOVE Baby I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review, but I also pre ordered it after I read it It s a keeper

    Fair warning, I have a vastly different perspective of this book compared to every review I ve read so far It might shock you but this is MY review First off, I have to say the storyline of Tex s story completely intrigued me at the beginning and I wasinvested in it than any of the other book plots I was disappointed though that it didn t really last very long I was expecting her to be on the run for a lot longer before he found her I was actually hoping he wouldn t find her until abo Fair warning, I have a vastly different perspective of this book compared to every review I ve read so far It might shock you but this is MY review First off, I have to say the storyline of Tex s story completely intrigued me at the beginning and I wasinvested in it than any of the other book plots I was disappointed though that it didn t really last very long I was expecting her to be on the run for a lot longer before he found her I was actually hoping he wouldn t find her until about halfway Tex has been in the series since the beginning basically being there for the guys at their beck and call I actually agreed with Mel when she said she thinks they take advantage of him It s not entirely true, I know they genuinely care for him, but not once have any of them gone to visit him since the first book Not once has it shown that they pick up the phone and call him just to see how he s doing or just to talk about anything in general Not once has it shown that they do anything in return for him when all he does is give They have him tracking their wives so they know they re safe as if he has no life and nothing better to do It s not his responsibility, I get they re his friends and all but that s just doing too much Putting his life on hold so he can monitor six other girls to make sure they re ok That s not right, it s not normal Which is why I was glad to see him getting his own happy ending The teaser for the book implied that he was gonna put his skills to work for his own benefit this time and as good as he is at hacking I wanted to see him struggle with finding her The chase of finding her seemed promising and exciting but was quickly resolved right away which was a let down It was all so easy for him to get to her and I had assumed from the teaser that he was gonna have to do some work before he caught up with her Guess not I liked Mel in the beginning Her online persona was what you got in person She was real and honest and gave it to you straight whether it hurt your feelings or not in a good way Meeting her in person didn t change my opinion of her, she was vulnerable and scared at first but once Tex came into the picture she became herself again now that she wasn t alone It was nice to see two sides of her and I embraced them both She s a fighter that isn t scared to hide who she is through good and bad times I liked her until the stalker was revealed and the weird reunion scene between Amy and Mel with Tex made sense Who Amy and Mel really were changed everything for me and there was no going back from that They were just another pair of reject Plastics, Heathers, and Flawless girls in high school The problem, they still behave that way as grown women almost in their thirties and I was blind to it because she was our heroine and her loyal best friend I don t condone what the stalker did and believe she desperately needed help but their stuck up bitchy behavior also contributed to the stalker s unstable mentality The stalker as an adult screwed up because they had plenty of chances to get treatment, at the same time, they also had no one on their side to push them to get the help they needed and they snapped The stalker as a teenager didn t do anything wrong and I feel heartbroken for them that they didn t get a chance to live life the way they should have They were lonely and tried to make friends with Amy and Mel who they had assumed were nice girls and would welcome her Instead, they turned up their noses, laughed, and treated that person like trash as mean girls do This is how school shootings happen, the outsider that everyone picks on turns the tables on the bullies and brings other innocent people down with them I don t feel one bit sorry for what happened to Mel, it s karma, but what made it even worse is she got a decent guy in the end as her reward for being the way she is while Amy who s evenworse than Mel has a good life as well I m not saying this writer is sending a message that bullying is acceptable if you re the heroine but expecting us to feel sorry for these two after finding out what kind of girls they were then and still are now No, they re not good people and if we were reading this story from the stalker s pov as a teenager we d be rooting for them to get their happy ending I hate that the writer tricked me into thinking Mel was a good person but at the same time it also taught me to beobservant from now on and to look for little things that seem odd and out of character I guess in a way it s also a reflection of us as people in the real world Appearances can be deceiving, people can control what they want others to see, you may think you know someone so well then one thing can completely change your perspective of them and you can t take it back I honestly wish I could forget this book but in a way, the lesson it taught me was worth it side note The hashtag thing was annoying and juvenile Grown women still reliving their glory days of being high school b tches is pathetic Done

    4.5 Stars I think this just may be my favorite of the SEAL of Protection series so far This story is a little different than the others.Tex is a thirty five year old retired Navy SEAL When an IED took part of his leg, and his career, he still wanted to serve his country He s always been the man that can find anyone, that uses his computer skills, legal and illegal, to keep people safe and to put the bad guys behind bars He has helped all six of his SEAL buddies find their wives at one 4.5 Stars I think this just may be my favorite of the SEAL of Protection series so far This story is a little different than the others.Tex is a thirty five year old retired Navy SEAL When an IED took part of his leg, and his career, he still wanted to serve his country He s always been the man that can find anyone, that uses his computer skills, legal and illegal, to keep people safe and to put the bad guys behind bars He has helped all six of his SEAL buddies find their wives at one time or another but sitting behind a computer is a lonely place to be One day he saw an interesting user handle in a chat room and wrote to her They began a texting relationship but the woman was very leary As they got to know each other Tex confided in her about his leg and how it has affected him, his self worth and his self esteem He sees himself as less than and has a healthy dose of self pity Melody had met a very interesting man online but she is very leary Someone is threatening her When they find her location once again she has to delete her online chat account and hit the road When Tex doesn t hear from her in a week and a half he knows something is very wrong He works his magic and has an approximate location He drives from the east coast to California to try and find her, help her, bring her safely home.I definitely recommend this book Personally, I found it a bit less angsty than the previous books and enjoyed it a great deal Safety Info No cheatingHeroine Some sexual experience but not recentlyHero Navy Seal definitely been around the sexual playground while a SEAL but not recently because of his leg
