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?

    They should have used someone else to read, took me a while to get into it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Quincy Tyler Bernstein?

    The erotic scenes and the way they were described.

    Story
    "Pamela B."
    What did you love best about The Object of His Protection?

    I liked that Drey was torn between doing his job and protecting his mother. He also had a inner fear that the new family would not except him but being the manly man he was he could not face that but Charlene saw through the brave front.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I've always liked mystery and suspense. I tried to figure it out before it was revealed. I was right. I would love to go digging around and try to uncover evidict to solve a crime.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Quincy Tyler Bernstein?

    Yes, she was pretty good.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Drey discovered that Charlene is a virgin he continued to make her first time special. And kept his word to please her throughout the night.

    "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.
