Publisher's Summary

Being ripped from her mundane life by a swarm of police officers is not what Rae Chapin expected when she woke up this morning. Accused of a series of murders she didn’t commit, Rae doesn’t have anyone to rely on. Except him. Alec Bronson, the popular boy who broke her heart all those years ago - now a smoking hot man - is her only hope of proving her innocence and finding the person eager to kill everyone she loves. 

It’s been two decades since Texas Ranger Alec Bronson last saw Rae. He shouldn’t get involved, but with one look at his childhood friend behind the steel bars and her proclamations of innocence, he’s convinced to take the case. The battle to keep his renewed feelings for the curvaceous woman hidden becomes impossible when the true killer emerges once again, targeting the only woman he’s ever loved. 

Life-altering secrets are revealed as the evidence mounts, pointing toward the killer who’s determined to make Rae pay for her past. When confronted with the truth, Rae is forced to make a decision. 

His life or hers.  

If you love a little darkness, murder, and possessive alpha heroes with the need for control mixed into your suspense then this series is for you. Please note this book is for mature listeners due to detailed sexual content, foul language, discussion of abuse, and a killer who will stop at nothing.

Another heartstopper!

Another wonderful listen in this series. Its the third book in the Protection series. Each of these characters have a problematic past. One worries they will catch up and the other feels they will never go away. I enjoyed Rae and her tale was woven exceptionally well. Alec has that Texas ranger special power that just blows me away. He seems top of the food chain in law enforcement. He was interesting to watch and see what he would do. I have to give a shout out to Charlie Becker! I loved how he messed with Alec all the time. Their banter was fun and the nickname he called Alex?? I loved it!

The narration was excellent! Teddy Hamilton and Virginia Rose did such a good job. I do hope Charlie gets a book sometime.

Great addition

This book is a great addition to the series. Teddy Hamilton knocks it out of the park as the bad ass Texas ranger and Virginia Rose plays the solitary, librarian with a secret perfectly. I enjoyed everything about this story.

5 stars all around

Teddy Hamilton and Virginia Rose did a fabulous job narrating. I was hooked and this pair was spot on with Alec and Rae’s character. I couldn’t stop listening. I was in such a zone that my kids commented saying that not even a robber could take me away from this audiobook! 5 stars all around!

Scorching and Addictive Romance!

This romantic suspense was an exciting thrill ride with twists and turns, fun banter, and lots of sizzling passion! I was so invested in Rae Chapin, and how she was trying to find a way out of the dreadful circumstances that took over her life. She is out of options when she turns to the only man who she has ever loved, even though he left her, without an explanation, years ago. Alec Bronson is a Texas Ranger, and when his childhood friend calls, he doesn't hesitate to run and help. The long buried feelings Alec and Rae have for each other quickly rise to the surface, and their fiery chemistry is undeniable. Alec tries to put his reemerging feelings aside as he investigates her case. A serial killer is on the loose and all evidence seems to point to Rae, and she is holding back secrets. When Rae refuses to help, she puts all their lives at risk. This third book in the Protection series continues to be a fast paced, gripping story, and an exciting and steamy romance with plot twists that will have you on edge trying to figure out what will happen next. My heart broke over both of Rae and Alec's pasts, but it made them the smart, protective, and passionate people they are today.
I loved the narration by Teddy Hamilton, and Virginia Rose. They helped weave Mitchell's breathtaking tale, drawing me in, making me feel all the extreme emotions, and made the heart-pounding story surrounding these characters even more of a nail biter! I was totally consumed by this scorching and addictive romance!

enjoyable

New author for me and it was an enjoyable second chance romantic suspense story. The plot moved at a good pace and I mostly enjoyed both characters.
I didn't find it to be Dark but just make sure you read the last paragraph of the blurb if you are worried.

Both narrators were excellent. However, as amazing and popular as Teddy Hamilton is, I didn't think he was the right voice choice for Alec - so that is where the 4-star performance came from. Virginia Rose was a voice good choice for Rae.

Second chance love with a twist!

This is my first book by Kennedy L. Mitchell and it was a great listening experience for me. Rae and Alec almost allowed their second chance at love to slip through their fingers. Both were very damaged by the hard lessons of life but managed to dig deep to solve their own individual insecurities and fight for what would make them happy together! Their circumstances were fraught with plenty of evil bombarding them from all sides but they persevered and overcame those obstacles! Teddy Hamilton and Virginia Rose were excellent narrators. Their performances made you feel each twist and turn Alec and Rae endured. The emotions easily showed through the action-packed and suspenseful situations. I look forward to more from this author!

Fun and exciting

I really enjoyed this book, the third in a series but you don't have to read/listen to the first two to understand this one.

In this book, Rae is a suspect in a kidnapping and is suspected of being a serial killer. She needs help to make sure that she wouldn't be unjustly charged so she calls her high school sweetheart, Alec, who broke her heart when he left her when they were younger.

From the beginning, this story started with a bang. Rae has a stalker who is killing anyone that she comes in contact with so it's really a race against time to find the killer before he kills everyone else she comes in contact with, including Alec. There's a bit of push and pull because Alec has some personal issues that led to him breaking Rae's heart and because of Rae's secrets and sometimes, irrational behavior. Additionally, I thought that Rae's constant concern with being plus size was a little outside the scope of the story and made her feel a little weaker as a character to me. Overall, though, I really enjoyed this story and I was at the edge of my seat towards the end! This was such a great mix of suspense and romance!

Teddy Hamilton and Virginia Rose were the narrators of the audiobook and as expected, they were excellent. I am a huge fan of their performances generally so I had high expectations of this narration and they followed through. Great control of their voices, excellent pacing and overall, their narration helped me immerse myself in the story.

Captivating Romantic Suspense! Awesome 🎧📚🎧

Kennedy L. Mitchell delivers another brilliantly gripping romantic suspense, the third in her “Protection” series. I am loving this series, it’s originality and how realistic it is. Each book stands on its own and I highly recommend them all, they are well written with interesting characters and storylines that are captivating from start to end. After meeting Texas Ranger Alec Bronson in “Mine to Save” I wanter to know more about him and I was happy to hear he would be getting his own book. Rae Chapin was basically a prisoner of her own life, no one understood her plight, she kept to herself because everyone she friended faced a tragic ending. A stranger in town made the fatal mistake of talking to her and she becomes the prime suspect in his murder because she was the last one to see him alive. The local law officers treat her like crap, think she has something to do with several deaths over the years but had not evidence to prove it. Afraid of what they may do she uses her one phone call to call the man who left her with a broken heart, Alec Bronson. He was her only hope to catch the real killer, the one targeting everyone she cares for. Alec did not leave Rae because he did not love her, he left her because he did. When she calls he drops everything to help her, he soon finds out a lot more has been going on the the local PD picked up on. Unexplained missing persons and a serial killer on the loose, are they all linked together, is it the same killer targeting Rae’s loved ones, Alec will get to the bottom of it all. He asked a friend, Charlie, an agent to come help him investigate, he is an expert at getting information using the latest technology. I adored Rae, she had an inner strength like no other, all she had been thru, the choices she made in her life include her self imposed isolation for the good of others shows how much of a caring heart she had. I had an inkling of what she was hiding and I was so glad I was right. Alec could be a real alph-a-hole at times, broken in many ways, but his kindness and good heartedness outshined his broken parts, he just needed to see that. Rae did and so did Sherry. I loved how everything played out in this book, like the first two in the series, the story is cleverly and there is never a dull moment. There is plenty of drama, angst, mystery, twists and turns, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and some hot romance. Kennedy L. Mitchell thank you for another awesome story and a thrilling and emotional rollercoaster ride. I hope there is more to come in this series, hoping to hear more about Charlie.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Teddy Hamilton and Virginia Rose were the perfect cast to bring these characters and their story to life. They did an awesome job portraying the characters, performing each role like they owned it. Teddy Hamilton’s Alec Bronson was spot on, he captured his alphatude with perfection, Virginia Rose grasped Rae’s persona completely and mastered her role. Both were awesome performing the roles of the secondary characters as well. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all of the characters emotions and projected them into their performance. These mega talented narrators are entertaining storytellers and versatile voice artist. Thank you for another awesome listen!
