Publisher's Summary

As a Navy SEAL, Rick Mann fought his way to hell and back, but he's never faced a challenge quite like protecting Sierra Cox. She's spoiled, she's annoying...and he's never wanted a woman more. That's a problem for so many reasons. At the top of that list is he needs to keep his head in the game because even though Sierra doesn't take anything seriously, including Rick, the threats on her life are very real.

Also, don't miss Rick's SEAL brothers in Night with a SEAL, Saved by a SEAL, SEALed at Midnight, Kissed by a SEAL, Loved by a SEAL, and Wed to a SEAL in the USA TODAY best-selling Hot SEALs series.

One fine day

This was my first romance audiobook. Once I started it, I couldn't stop. Hence the fine day! I've read the previous books in this series but having this one read to me by Craig took the experience to a whole new level. There are editorial reviews in the other versions, and Cat's again given us a fine romance wrapped in an intriguing story, but I'd like to comment on the audio. I'm a fast reader, and realized as I was listening that I have a tendency to skip over stuff, and while the sentences carry meaning, my mind doesn't always interpret what they express. It's hard to explain. Listening to Craig breathe life into the words added another dimension to the story. I wasn't sure how hearing it in only a man's voice would be, but he his Sierra was great! I found myself smiling and laughing more with his inflections. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to listening to more, especially if narrated by Craig, in the future.

another winner in the series

Rick as a part of GAPS is hired to protect Sierra Cox from a crazed stalker. This leads to him taking her away from her cushy environs and out of her comfort zone. However, she is drawn to Rick despite her best efforts to resist the 'Neanderthal'. Still, he is there to protect her.
A good tale that has an interesting series of turns of events leaving you guessing to almost the bitter end. Well worth the read/listen!
Still a great narrator too!

Another great book in this series

Love this book. great narration. Rick and Sierra have the typical stereotypes for each other even though Sierra is way off on her assumptions about Rick. Sierra is a movie star that needs protection from a crazed fan but she is not taking it as serious as she should. Rick is her security detail trying to keep her safe. What happens when they decide to have sex just to relieve the stress of the situation?

Another HOT story in the series

The new company GAP (Guardian Angel Protection) is starting to get clients and when starlet, Sierra Cox has a stalker, and needs protection, GAP is hired.
Rick Mann, whom we have met in previous stories, is not happy with his full time job in security, quickly volunteers to take the job. Little did he know he would have his hands full dealing with SIerra.
While for me, Sierra might not have been the most likable character up to date, I really loved Rick.
His sense of responsibility in keeping SIerra safe, while trying to please her, was sweet.
But of course the danger is always around the corner especially when least expected. Will Rick get his HEA or will Sierra be just a memory?
The audio and the narrator brought the story to life.

Great story

Loved this book. It’s a great story with hunky seals who have retired. They work for GAPS a personal protection service.
My only complaint is the book ended too soon. I enjoyed the story so much I wanted more. I will definitely continue with the series.

SEAL Protector

Cat Johnson does it again! Protected by a SEAL totally hooked me, and didn't let go until the end. Rick and Sierra were fabulous characters, I really enjoyed their dynamics. Once again, Craig Jessen nailed the narration. Overall, this was a fantastic listen, one I'll recommend. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Series keeps getting better

I like the Hot SEALs series even more as it continues. While this is book 5 in the series, it can be read/listened to as a stand alone. There are characters from previous books, however they only make brief appearances.

I also like the narration by Craig Jessen better as the series goes on. I like the different voices he uses to differentiate between the characters.

Best one of the series so far

Liked Rick. It's an enemy to lovers so obviously Sierra was gonna be a pain. Typical Hollywood starlet heroine. IDK, I kinda liked her. She did have great GAPS acronyms. I also thought Rick and her had the best chemistry of all the couples so far.

The story flowed well and had a beginning, middle, and end so there is that.
It's the same HFN ending and I guess they have another book later in the series to continue their just started relationship. I'm not really a fan of that.

Definitely HOT SEAL!

Rick Mann is a former Navy SEAL. He is bored in his current security job and misses the excitement and danger of his previous employment with the SEALs. Rick jumps at the chance to be busy with a job for the newly established GAP security company, but Sierra Cox might be more than he bargained for. This is definitely an “Insta-lust” story...hot, hot, hot!
I enjoyed this story on audiobook. Good narration kept me entertained.

Sierra & Rick

Rick is about to go stir crazy and needs some action in his life. He finally gets a chance to help with the security company his teammates put together. He has to guard a diva movie star that has someone stalking her. They have to go into hiding until they catch the wrong guy, while she is unprotected things go wrong. I have Thoroughly enjoyed this entire series the narration was great I especially liked when he slowed down through the love making scenes. Some people rush through to show emotion but this narrator slowed down. Everything was great I definitely recommend this book.

Fabulous

I really wanted to slap Sierra so many times but as annoying as she could be by the end of the book I really loved her.

A fantastic listen loved everything about this book
