Seven years ago she broke his heart...
Leaving Vincent was the hardest thing Jordan Alvarado ever had to do, but she had no choice. She never expected to come back, or for the smoldering attraction between them to ignite into a bonfire. But deep down, she knows he'll never be able to understand or forgive what she did, and that being with him will only lead to heartbreak.
He's not letting her go again...
Former SEAL Vincent Hansen never got over Jordan and the way she up and left him without a trace. When she reappears and explains what happened, he's even more furious. He doesn't know what he wants from her, but when she's targeted in a series of potentially deadly attacks, he realizes he's never stopped loving her. Now he'll do whatever it takes to keep her safe and convince her that she was always meant to be his.
Author Note: Protecting His Witness is the seventh story in the Red Stone Security series but can be heard as a stand-alone.

Say something about yourself!
A couple who really love each other makes for an enjoyable read. I wish these books were just a bit longer with more interaction between other characters in the series and maybe some more action. Otherwise its still a nice series.
I loved the story line, the characters, and the narrator was easy to listen to.
I actually loved all of this book, I am a huge fan of Katie Reus and look forward to any books that she writes.
Sopie Eastlake was very enjoyable and kept my attention.
I really enjoyed listening and reading this book, Katie Reus is a wonderful author and I highly recommend this book.
Vincent Hansen met his true love, Jordan Alvarado, in San Diego seven years ago. She disappeared without a word and broke his heart. She's back and so is the love and desire that he always felt when he was with her. Now she's free from witness protection. Do they get a second chance at happiness? Or will the killer targeting Jordan be successful? Can Vincent and Redstone Security save her? Protecting His Witness is a winner. Katie Reus just keeps getting better! The characters are strong-minded and compelling. The action is non-stop and the plot twist kept you guessing. All I can say is I want more! If you enjoy a suspenseful story with an Alpha male and a feisty female, this is the book for you. Sophie Eastlake does a wonderful job narrating Protecting His Witness. Listening to this audio book made for an exciting experience.
This tale is an original take on a second chance at love story. It is a fast-paced, sweet and spicy book, full of high stakes action. Once I started it, I did not want to put it down.
I loved both the characters and they made for an engrossing story. Both of these characters are strong-willed and compelling. Vincent is an Alpha male with a capital A and Jordan is a Fiery damsel in distress with a capital F. Even though Vincent doesn't understand why Jordan didn't give him a chance to decide if he wanted to join her, he's still determined to keep her safe.
I have to mention the villain in this one. He was a stalker who gave me the chills.
The narrator, Sophie Eastlake, delivered a solid, well-paced performance. She has a clear, pleasing voice that is easy to follow. Her performance had me on the edge of my seat gasping at the same time I was swooning. She delivered both female and male genuine- sounding characters and brilliantly differentiated between the characters so I never had an issue knowing who was speaking. I would not hesitate to pick up an audio that she has narrated.
I alternated between gasping and swooning... The scene near the beginning when Jordan re-enters Vincent's life, almost made me cry.
This installment is an emotional riveting rollercoaster. Will the killer targeting Jordan hit his mark? Can Vincent and Red Stone Security save her? Their story will keep you guessing until the very end. I highly recommend PROTECTING HIS WITNESS to anyone who enjoys high-octane, sexy romantic thrillers. You really can't go wrong with any of her Red Stone Security books. This is positively one of my favorites!
Three things made this enjoyable: the likable characters, the interesting storyline, and the quality of the narrator who has a very pleasant and clear voice.
This book is comparable to any other of Katie Reus' romantic suspense stories. There are strong heroes and heroines plus great storylines filled with action.
The narration was excellent; the words very clear, well-paced and easy to follow. Sophie Eastlake did a great job of narration and used different voices for the different characters which brought a depth to the reading and were quite believable for the characters. The change of voice for the male hero though I found perhaps a little too deep. One of these days I am going to listen to a book that uses a man for male voices and/or male POV’s and a female for the female voices and/or female POV’s, that is the only thing that could have possibly made this listen better.
Yes. If I hadn't had to work I would have listened to it all in one sitting. I started in the evening and finished the following morning.
I received a complimentary copy from the author for an honest review.
NUMBER OF STARS: 4
This was my second time reading this book and I had the great pleasure of listening to Protecting His Witness on audio.
I will say that I enjoyed this book just as much the second time as I did the first time.I enjoyed Vincent & Jordan’s story. They both were so in love with each other. But when Jordan disappeared over night Vincent was left with a broken heart and no answers. When Jordan reappears out of nowhere Vincent has a hard time keeping his feelings in check. He can’t decide if he is mad and wants to push Jordan away or grab her and hold her tight so she can never leave again.
Sophia does a pretty good job narrating this book. I think that she told the story very well and she did great justice to Jordan’s voice. But when it came to Vincent’s voice it was a little off to me. I can’t quite put finger on it but there was just a little something off. It didn’t take away from the story, but was just something off.
I look forward to more of Katie’s Red Stone stories. I will be watching for them on audio too.
I received a complimentary copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review. This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.
They are both great!:)So I can't say the audio edition is better than the print when I love both!:)
When Vincent met his love again!*Sigh*
When Vincent met the love of his life again!I was so happy for him!:)
I cried when Vincent met his love again!I wanted to hug him so much!
I recommend this story and the others in the Red Stone Security series,if you love Romantic Suspense!Katie has talent and she will draw you in from the first page!
I am Tammy Payne. I am an avid book reader and I also have a book blog :)
I enjoyed how it brought the story to life. I have read the book and loved it also.
Jordan ~ He is a true alpha male but also has this huge romantic side and he never gave up on what he wanted.
There was no favorite . The Narrator did a fantastic job
hahaha there were times i'd love to have thrown Jordan in a lake
Fantastic story and the Narrator was wonderful and very clear voiced
Katie Reus has very quickly risen in the ranks of my keepers ~ I now own all her books on my Kindle AND in audio, they're that fantastic. In this latest installment in her Red Stone Security series we focus on Vincent and Jordan, who at one time were madly in love. But Jordan witnesses something awful and unexpected ~ and while she and Vincent are crazy for one another, can she really ask him to leave his family, his LIFE behind for her?
It's been years since Vincent has seen Jordan ~ who left him with not explanation. He wants to hate her...but the second he sets eyes on her it's like they were never apart.
FABULOUS story ~ one of the things I like best about Katie Reus is how she can pack a full, emotional love story into a novella. That takes mad SKILLS! And she does it every time, lol. I loved Vincent and Jordan, the way they had to struggle to come back together ~ and the way Vincent was ready to step up and stand for her when she is threatened. Fabulous story, truly great narration ~ you can't go wrong with this one! It'll satisfy your romance AND suspense craving!!
Can't wait for MORE Red Stone Securities stories!
And if you haven't checked out her Sin City series ~ you are SO missing out!!
suspense; second-chances; HEA
As one book in a series, I'd definitely recommend reading the entire Red Stone Security series. The story lines are all different but since they exist in the same world, you have a similar formula... and you often get to re-visit with characters from the previous books, which is always a bonus!
My first Sophie Eastlake performance was on Red Stone Security #7, Breaking Her Rules. I love Sophie's many voices and her interpretation of each character.
