The Object of His Protection | [Brenda Jackson]

The Object of His Protection

Investigator Drey St. John never dreamed helping the Braddocks discover the truth behind their father's fatal crash would lead to his own mother's shocking confession: Senator Braddock was Drey's biological father. Determined to solve the case, Drey enlisted all-work-and-no-play Charlene Anderson's help. But the more time he spent with the beautiful forensic scientist, the more he realized their sharp banter fronted a simmering mutual attraction that wouldn't be denied.

Publisher's Summary

With a body as solid as his reputation, private investigator Drey St. John never dreamed helping the Braddocks discover the truth behind their father's fatal crash would lead to his own mother's shocking confession: Senator Braddock was Drey's biological father. Determined to solve the case, Drey enlisted all-work-and-no-play Charlene Anderson's help. But the more time he spent with the beautiful forensic scientist, the more he realized their sharp banter fronted a simmering mutual attraction that wouldn't be denied.

Charlene's career left no time for exotic playboys. Then she found herself under Drey's roof, in need of his protection - and a victim of his seductive charms. But when the late senator's secrets - and Drey's true identity - were uncovered, would Drey face the betrayals in his past, and his future as a Braddock, with Charlene by his side?

    "Couldn't finish"

    I could not finish this book. I quit on the eighth chapter. The author spent the entire first seven chapters writing about the sexual tension between the two main characters. Enough already...let's move on and develop the storyline!

    "Good..but I feel I need more."

    Brenda's a great writer but her books are kind of wham baam! I enjoyed the read but wasnt ready for it to be over :-). I just happened to get two of her books with the character in the same "state" which I thought was odd as well.

    "Entertaining"

    I enjoyed this listen. And the ethnic voice quality of the reader was a treat. The other 2 by Brenda jackson, however, have readers who you couldn't imagine being black. It's a distracting turn off. The richness of the actual voice quality is not there. Just as only a few male readers make the female's sound right and only a few female readers make the males sound right. It's not the speach pattern, it's the voice quality. But, at least they make their respective characters sound like a male or a female. In most other non- ethnic books that happen to have a latino or black character in them the readers think trying to use some stereo typical speach pattern makes the character ethnic (many non ethnic writers, write these characters that way too.) I appreciate that these readers didn't try to adopt some stereo typical accents or speach pattern. But, wow, the quality and tember of their actual voices is no where near what it would be for the typical black person. So, my mind can't see what I'm reading. I can't get a mental picture. Just as when most people hear radio announcers they get an image of what the person looks like (even if it's completely wrong) my mind can't put these voices on black faces.

    "Disappointment"

    This book should be classified more erotica than romance/suspense. Disappointing.
