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.

Smart sassy waitress finally grabs the SEAL

Would you listen to Protecting Jessyka again? Why?

I would. This story had a tiny bit of a different spin with the others. It also showed the good guys didn't always follow the good guy rules with civilians. Also, it wasn't instant attraction. The team had been around Jessyka for a long time and it when it became clear she needed help did one step up to help her.

What does Stella Bloom bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is a very good narrator and her voice inflection really helps the feeling of the story.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book like all the others and it was nice to see one of the team's women had a physical disability that didn't help her appearance but would have made any other man think twice. Disabilities on women aren't usually front and center - she was a real character, not a runway model.

This Series Rocks!

Seals are always hot, but there's nothing like a hard as nails, take charge woman. Jessyka, despite physical disabilities was smart and used those sharp wits to save herself and her man from a psycho. Don't miss her story.

Jessica and Benny

Another great Stoker SEAL of Protection book. I highly recommend listening to the books in order.

You'll have to read/ listen to Protecting the Future to finally learn the source of Benny's nickname.

Good narrator.

Love the book

I love the story, the characters, but too much bedroom for me. ( yes it said it before I got it) I fast forward past that part. But I also cried because the book was that good. I would love to see more books like this, and love the story line.
