Publisher's Summary

Brice

Life hasn’t always been easy for Brice. With his own mother abandoning him when he was a teenager and his father having a dangerous job, life has been lonely. That is, until his father decides he needs a bodyguard he doesn’t want. So why does he find himself noticing how attractive the broody bodyguard is? And why does he want him to stay, after all?

Carter

Staying out of sight is Carter’s specialty. It’s something he learned while in the military and something he put into play while being on the run. Staying in one spot for too long isn’t something that sets well with the surly man. Initially, keeping an eye on the young man isn’t exactly what Carter wants to do, but now something isn’t letting him leave.

Personalities clash and tempers rise with these two men, making every day they’re together more challenging than the last. As the days pass, more secrets are revealed as their feelings for each other grow stronger. But when one man’s past comes back to haunt him, each man will stop at nothing to protect the other.

Promise to Shield is the second book of the Personal Protectors series. It is intended for a mature audience with adult situations and language. Promise to Shield also mentions cutting and past abuse.

Dance With Me

Carter is hired by Larry to guard his son Brice since Larry has a dangerous job and fears someone might retaliate against him using his son. During the course of his job a problem from Carter's past finds him and puts everyone in danger. Overall I enjoyed this audiobook, I liked the characters and the story. I think that sometimes Brice came across a little younger than his 24 years but that may have just been the snark talking. I think Brice and Carter had good chemistry and I liked the side characters. I especially liked Kenneth Obi's depiction of the characters and that truly enhanced the story. Recommended.

I won a copy of this audiobook but this is my honest review.

great read

Promise to Shield is the second book in Brittany Cournoyer's Personal Protectors series. Brice and Carter are steamy together. The story is highly entertaining with action, funny moments, sweet moments, hot times and some angst. The two main characters clash and then come together with passion... and the supporting cast of characters are intriguing as well. Definitely makes me want more from this series.

Kenneth Obi narrates this story and does a fantastic job bringing the story and characters to life. Loved it.

I loved it

This was book 2 in the "Personal Protectors" series. I loved this book. Brice Armstrong is the son of Larry the undercover FBI agent from the first book his mother left him and his father works a lot when his father gets him a bodyguard they don't hit it off. Carter has been running a lot never staying in one place for too long so when Larry offers him a job he takes it. Brice and Carter don't get along Carter finds him annoying but he knows that Brice is lonely and he sees that his father is not there for him. When these two hook up its hard and fast and explosive. I liked both of these characters a lot Carter takes his job seriously and when one of Bruce's co-workers starts hitting on him making him uncomfortable he deals with it turns out Walt was just a plant. When Brice falls and hurts his ankle after they have sex the first time Carter gets mad because he didn't tell him. When Carter's past catches up with him he hides out with Brice with the help of Rusty the bar owner from the first book and Beckett's uncle. When Brice and his friend Elliot are kidnapped by the man who is hunting Carter he finds out who his friends are and with the help of Beckett and Rusty they get Brice and Elliot back but they are hurt bad. I loved that they stop kidding themselves and fell in love. This book also had a surprise turns off the older man that Elliot talked about was Larry and Brice didn't take it so well. This was a good book that I loved I read and listened to this book. This book was well written with no errors in grammar or spelling. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series. Larry and Elliot

intriguing and sexy


This is my first book by Brittany Cournoyer but won't be my last(really want to read the first book in this series) This is the second book in this series but it does work okay out of order. I followed quite well however I would have liked to have known a bit more about Carter and why he was guarding Brice, and Larry Brice's dad. All that was probably covered in the first book and didn't really take away from this.
Carter has been living with Brice as his built-in bodyguard for a year or more now. Brice doesn't like it and is quite the brat.
I like the Growly Carter and Bratty Brice. I loved the back and forth fighting that led to hot sex. I thought the story was a perfect mix of tension, intrigue, mystery, suspense, and romance. I loved it!

Kenneth Obi added a great flair with unique voices for each man. You could hear Carters growls and grunts and the snark in Brice's voice. and the sex? OH MY! if you have the opportunity get the audio, it really does bring the book to life and make boring chores much more fun.

1st Read by this Author & I'm in Love!!!

This Read had it all!

The perfect plot to entice all the senses.

The banter between the MC's was the delicious foreplay to the ultimate explosiveness that was Carter & Brice.

I heard this read because Kenith Obi is one of my top 5 favorite Narrators, and as always, he did not disappoint.

An amazing story filled with sexual tension, angst and suspense. A thrilling ride that I wish had been longer, but was throughly satisfying.

Thank you for the escape!

Fun Read

If you like action/adventure with your romance, then you will enjoy “Promise to Shield”. Carter was a bit over the top alpha for my taste, but the story was interesting.
Kenneth Obi’s narration is very good. He gives each character their own voice and brings the story to life with his expressive style.

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the top 5 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B
