Published July 19th 2016 by Evangeline Anderson Books
Grav N’gol is many things. Murderer…ex-con…Alien half-breed…
And a Protector.
More than just a bodyguard, a Protector chooses a female to ward for life and swears an oath to die for her if necessary.
Enter Leah Roth. The luscious little Earth female is supposed to be just a quick surveillance gig for Grav. He’ll check on her and report back that she’s okay—it should be easy.
Only she’s not okay.
When Grav sees Leah’s abusive husband hurting her, he swings into action. Before he knows it, he has Leah aboard his ship. When he’s given a dangerous and difficult mission, Leah volunteers to come along and help…and somehow Grav can’t say no.
But as much as he feels drawn to the lovely little human, Grav knows it can never be between them. For in his past lurks a bloody and savage secret that would turn even the most forgiving heart against him.
From his past and from his true nature Leah must be... Protected at all costs.
...Words I never thought I'd utter.
...Words you likely never thought you'd hear. Right?
After reading Sarden's story in book one where we also first get introduced to Grav, I didn't expect to like Grav as much as I did Sarden. As it turns out, I much preferred being in Grav's head. He was, by far, the geekiest of the two.
I needed to stop that shit.
And he's one of those fuckety-fuck-fuck-fuck kinda guys when he speaks, so yes, my corrupted little mind had all sorts of fun with him.
Why is it that I love it when males swear and cuss in books, but find it oh so repugnant in everyday life?
A moment of reflection. Gotta love it.
Although the idea of it is simply adorable, the concept of not being with someone because they're 'too good' for you drives me into madness. I need something more than that to overcome. Thankfully, we're getting that extra oomph in the next installment with Kristoff (bad name, bad bad name) and Charlotte's story.
3 out of 5 stars.
