The VC Warriors are an elite group of vampire who protect innocents, whether human or those of their own race. Jared Kincaid, along with other Warriors, are shocked when a fiery red head with a gun and attitude, bring news of young teens being turned into an army of half-breed vampires capable of taking out all VC Warriors. Breaking into the famed VC Warriors compound was definitely not the smartest thing Tessa Pride has ever done, but she will do anything for her brother, Adam. The Warriors held the one person she knew was responsible for her brother being turned into a half-breed and nothing will stop her from getting what she needs to help her brother, not even a Warrior whose eyes could make her melt with one look. Jared and Tessa join forces in a desperate scramble to find who is responsible. With a war between Warriors and half-breeds brewing, suspicions of traitors in their midst put the lives of everyone involved on the line.
Two books into a series of 7 (+1 in the making) of The Protectors series & I am totally addicted. Teresa Gabelman hit a "home run" with this series. Jeffrey Kafer [the narrator] worked this book. I'm greedy in anticipation for the remainder of this series. I thought that Damien & Nicole's story was exciting but Jared & Tessa built on the series like a great musical piece and blew me away! The anticipation of book 3 [Duncan & Pam's story] is painful. I NEED to know what happens next! Yes, I could read all of the series now, but, as I said, Jeffrey Kafer really makes this series come to life even more than just reading it. So, I want to listen to it.
Each book builds on the previous one & includes the prior book's characters. I am totally invested. I loved the ending of book 2 and anticipate the others. All those characters have a story [just from what is written in the first 2] & it's killing me that I can't listen to them NOW. I am not good with waiting...the frustration is building
These are not teen or YA books, yet they aren't vulgar. It is a love story with the excitement of the Vampire Council Warrior's ongoing battle with the rogue half-breeds. There is betrayal from those least expected & help from others who were thought to be enemies. The books will keep the attention of people of all ages who love a good paranormal story.
There is sexual excitement/tension between the lovers & a good plot that keeps you attuned to each word said. These are the type of books that I have waited for. Thankfully, they didn't go overboard with the "50 Shades junk" & actually had a story to tell with enough sexual tension to keep it believable for a romance & paranormal book.
I NEED to know what is happening in all the other character's lives. Although, I got a HEA on Jared & Tessa there is danger surrounding some of the other characters that needs to be resolved.

I loved, loved, loved absolutely everything about this second instalment into The Protectors series about a group of very Alpha Vampire males and the trouble they find themselves caught up in. It reminds me of my absolute favorite vampire series..... J R Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood, no it's not quite as good but it's still early days into this series. However, there's the same witty banter, the same 'brotherhood' feeling, the same 'they'll do anything to protect their mate' and, of course, they're all sexy, hunky and 'take no sh*t' Vampires.
This books starts where the last one left off.... Chad is being interrogated by The Protectors as they're sure he holds the answers to many of their who and why questions but the trouble is Damon just wants to rip his head off for endangering his mate Nicole (story in book 1). The trouble comes when bar worker Tessa, who would do anything for her brother who has been viciously turned into a half-breed against his will, along with many other teenagers, and they think Chad knows who did it. So they cleverly, efficiently and successfully storm the compound to steal Chad from under the very noses of the Warriors...... which annoys, intrigues, fascinates and amuses the Hell out of Jared, along with the red headed beauty who carried it out.
Various POV's all brilliantly done by the sexy deep voice of Jeffry Kafer who made the book come alive.
Worth a credit? Strong willed Heroine and a love-love-loveable charming Hero who had great chemistry between them and funny witty and sexy interactions, good secondary characters and an action-packed continuation of the storyline that has twists, surprises and heartwarming romantic scenes makes this a 'straight through' listen as I just couldn't stop listening. So creditworthy.... you bet!

THIS BOOK COULD BE LISTENED TO IN A COUP[LE AFTERNOONS
Loved the story, but the narrator was bloody awful. Frustrated that the rest aren't available.

This is the second story in the series but also be read as a stand alone story it delves into the insecurities of a young woman who Jared claims and in doing so allows Tessa to bloom into a more confident person
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favourite character is Jill. She is a shy quiet girl who is forced to deal with the problems, whilst dealing with her own problems she interacts well with the other characters and with some pushing from Tessa she emerges from her quiet she'll to become a strong character.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
I enjoyed the fair ground scene the most. The descriptions of all the attractions and booths / stalks gave me a clear picture in my mind

I like Jeffrey Kaffer as a narrator some narrators can ruin a good story, but I like the fact that he has the ability to use different voices for different characters. When I first heard him narrating I was a little unsure as he seemed to have a very monotone voice but once the action started I found his descriptions and intimations were perfect for the story. As a result I now have several books narrated by him.
