Publisher's Summary

Tex gave everything he had to his country and his SEAL teammates. When an IED took away part of his leg, and his career, he devoted himself to his country and friends from behind his computer. He's always been the man that can find anyone, that uses his computer skills, legal and illegal, to keep people safe and to put the bad guys behind bars.

But behind a computer is a lonely place to be. While he might put on a good front, Tex can't help but feel he's missing out when he sees how happy his friends are. But when the woman he's been talking to online for the last six months suddenly disappears without a word, Tex knows it's time to step up and use his skills for himself this time.

Protecting Melody is the seventh book in the SEAL of Protection series. It can be heard as a standalone, but it's recommended you hear the books in order to get maximum enjoyment out of the series.

Excellent series

Stella Bloom is one of my favorite narrators so that was icing on this cake of goodness. This series is well written, the characters are strong and the stories deep. I just wish I knew how Benny got his nickname.

Hate the graphic sex

I don’t like graphic sex in my romantic suspense and yes, there are tons of authors who don’t use graphic sex in their books: Irene Hannon, Lynette Eason, and Dee Henderson just to Name a few. Plus these books are much better written!

Same same

The first four books in the series are very good. A compilation of action and romance after that it just turned into a smutty romance which is fine if that’s what you’re looking for but I like the combination better I’ve stopped reading the series.

The quality of this book is so bad.

I’ve listen to all of the books in this series and I like Stella Bloom’s narration. But this book is soooo bad. The quality of the audio is terrible, she sounds muffled and far away.
Which really bums me out since I wanted to hear Tex’s story.

Better than what I have expected

I read a lot of the reviews on this book. and it help my decision not to listen to this story in fear of being disappointed. I am actually very happy that I did finally purchase this book. It was very entertaining. There wasn't a lot of action but you get to know the man behind the computer more and understand him. I'm happy he got his happily ever after. This book is worth the purchase. I love how Susan Stoker gave him the love that he needed and how she didn't let him give up on his self. Tex is one of my favorite characters in the series. I love how he always pops up in her other series. It is nice to hear how he meets his wife and he they got started.

The narrator Stella Bloom always make these characters come to life.

Please give this book a listen. Personally for me it is good. But I will say one thing it is not as stressful as the other books. It is more like who is the villain and then when you start to suspect who it is than you start asking yourself why, what is the motive?

Poor Tex deserved a better story

I was so excited for this book... I have loved Tex throughout the series. I expected a better story for him though. Absolutely still love Tex but this book just lacked. The hashtag thing and the “this is ours, you can’t do it” really just bugged me and felt like a seriously childish especially toward Tex. Not my favorite of the series and the heroine in no way matches up to the others.

Not up to Ms Harber standards

The story isn’t good or bad - it just is. More like a hallmark mystery movie. Disappointing, even I figured out who the stalker was - and the prologue of this story was completely maddening.

Possibly the best of the series

I've waited for Tex story. He has always been one of my favorite characters. His story and the head on realistic look at Military men and their struggle was refreshing.

Tex and Melody

I do love listening to Stella Bloom

This is Tex and Melody's story. We all love a bit of Tex. Even though Tex has lost a leg , the man is still a protector and a Navy Seal all the way .
He and Melody first meet over a chat room and become friends, But once Melody stops replying Tex knows something is wrong and sets out to find out what and how he can help.
We meet baby who is a lovely giant of a dog and see a very gentle side to Tex. I loved the way Melody helps Tex with caring for his leg and sees only the man.
Oh yes there is someone out to hurt Melody, but the woman, thinks on her feet or shall I say fast typing fingers.

nice to see tex in love

again not a particularly mission based, which i prefer and i think tex is way better than what Ms Stoker portrayed him to be in the final chapters ...so this was ok but I still have my fave in this series...protecting Fiona.
