Protecting His Own by Cherise Sinclair
Erotic BDSM Romance. Does not stand alone.
Protecting His Own by Cherise Sinclair is Book 11 in the Masters of the Shadowlands series…a series I absolutely LOVE. In Protecting His Own, we get the chance to revisit Beth and Nolan as they struggle through the ups and downs of trying to start a family. When Beth gets the news that she is unable to conceive, she is devastated. And with that devastation comes old insecurities of not being good enough.
“I’m sorry. Sorry.” She dissolved into tears again, wanting—needing— to apologize. My body is worthless. I’m hopeless, never good for anything, not—
There was a crack of sound and pain scorched her bottom. The shocking sting splintered her thoughts into fragments. Jerking, she met his annoyed dark gaze.
Oh, God, she’d been speaking out loud.
“If I hear any more of the crap Kyler shoved in your head, I’ll lay you across my knees , and you’ll get a spanking session that’ll leave you unable to sit down for a week.”
Beth works at a shelter for abused women and children. Through the shelter she creates a bond with two young boys who have seen tragedy early on in their lives. And when further hard times come their way, Beth and Nolan are there to lend a hand.
This story comes with tears and heartbreak, but most of all it creates warmth and beauty in the form of unconditional love and joy. There is also a fair amount of suspense….just the way I like it! And let’s not forget the incredible HEAT that Cherise Sinclair brings to every book she writes. The scenes she creates are intense and off the charts erotic.
It was simply wonderful catching up with the Shadowlands Crew…we get glimpses of everyone, including a couple of new Masters I am more than intrigued to get to know. Cherise writes Doms in the most beautiful way…all growly, possessive, and tough, with soft centers reserved for those they cherish.
“You taught me the difference between empty fucking and making love.” He gave her a slow kiss. “I’m not interested in going back.”
Protecting His Own does not disappoint. I adored Beth and Nolan in Breaking Free and I fell even more in love with them during this book. Overall, another fantastically balanced read from Ms. Sinclair. If you have not indulged in this series yet, do not wait another minute!
Rating: 4.75 stars for storyline 4.5 flames for heat (scenes were SMOKIN’, but that wasn’t the focus of this story)
