Publisher's Summary

Kason "Benny" Sawyer was the last single man on his Navy SEAL team. He loved his teammates like brothers and respected each and every one of their women. They'd all been through hell and they deserved their current happiness. But seeing the love between his friends and their women made it tough to be the odd man out all the time.

Jessyka Allen had a good life, until it wasn't anymore. Finding herself in an impossible situation, with no noticeable way out, her job was an escape. Working at the small bar and grill put her in contact with some wonderful people, who Jess figured couldn't ever understand what she was going through.

Being a SEAL, Benny thought he knew the true meaning of teamwork and friendship. But Jess would show him that everything he thought he knew about sacrifice, trust, and love, paled in comparison to what she brought into his world.

So different but so good!!

Oh how I loved this story. This one stand-alone is a perfect blend of friends to lovers and military romance. Kason “Benny” Sawyer knew there was something going on with Jessyka. Jess has been their waitress at Aces for years so he could tell something wasn’t right. When he goes to check on her one night he learns more than he bargains for. Jessyka was in a bad place feeling trapped in a situation. She needed a friend and Kason became that friend.

As things develop between them, feelings develop and they become more than friends. He becomes her anchor as she becomes his everything. This book has the usual action and suspense that Susan Stoker is known for but it also has a bit of twist.

Jessyka's awesome

What made the experience of listening to Protecting Jessyka the most enjoyable?

The narrator who does an amazing job of bringing this series to life

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jessyka cause she was so strong even with her handicap and wasn't about to allow her man to be hurt

What about Stella Bloom’s performance did you like?

She does an awesome job with the men's voices some narrators (male and female) don't do a great job with the other sex but Stella does I forget I'm listening to a woman narrator a story and just get into the story

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

When Jessyka is trying to save Bennie

Any additional comments?

I love this series but I'm glad I waited to finish the series till I could get the last few books on audio. I know this may seem weird to some but I started this series by listening to it on audio and really wanted to finish it that way so I had to wait a bit to finish. Susan did not disappoint me at all and this has become one of my favorites of her's that I've read. With every book I've become more and more in love with this family/team she has created for this series. They may have started as a team but along the way they have become a family. I love how Jessyka had to protect Bennie and although she didn't like what she had to do she did it anyways to save her man.
The narrator Susan uses for this series does an outstanding job and when I'm listening to the man's voice in the story I never think that is a women talking like a man I just think how much I'm enjoying this book.

Loved Jessyka and Benny

Jessyka had appeared in all the past stories in this series. Benny was the last of the team guys to find his match. This was a touching story, but also very tragic. Some of the storyline was hard to take. But I LOVE that the bad guy his just desserts. Another outstanding story.

Benny and Jessyka’s story

I love this series by Susan Stoker! This audiobook is the story of Benny (Kason) and Jessyka, who kind of know each other because she works at the bar the team always goes to to unwind. As they are there one evening, Benny notices that Jessyka seems different and is walking and working as if in pain. When he touches her arm, Benny notices she winces. He can’t stop thinking about her and a few days later he goes back alone to check on her. He offers to be her friend and to help her if she needs it. Finally she confesses she’s in an abusive situation with her roommate, who is also her ex boyfriend. He makes her promise to reach out to him when she needs help, and one day she does. The love story is sweet and the plot is well thought out. Narration is excellent.

Protecting Jessyka is my favorite so far.

my favorite so far. Loved the story. Jess is strong. doesn't let her handicap define her. The last Jess summed up everyone at Aces' and pegged everyone spot on.

Way to crass

I liked all the Seal of protection books 1-5. This one was just way too crass, I was upset with the descriptions of sexual violence. This book just wasn’t for me.

Finally Benny has a woman

Love these alpha males - they are categorically too good to be true. Enjoying the entire series- this starts off as a gut-wrenching story of emotional and physical abuse, having a handicap, and being bullied.

Recommended

It was terrific getting to know Jessyka. She has been in the background throughout the series and had me wondering about her, and hoping she would be 'the one' for one of the guys. It was good to see that Kasen/Benny noticed the change in Jessyka and take action to find out why. Jessyka seems to fit in as though she was always there.

Stella Bloom did another awesome job narrating. I'm so glad she has toned down Caroline through the last few stories. She is much more likeable now.

predictable plot

not as much angst in this one but some sensitive topics and awful revelations. I still like a mission based romance like Fiona and cookie. getting thru these seals has been an up and down listen, great,good,meh!
but if you like Ms Stokers writing then like series movies, the theme is the same the plot just shifts.
