I love books with animals and I fell for Ezio on the first page of this book. Volunteering at the shelter he's found Tabitha a Shephard, Labrador, Husky mix, she will be trained as a therapy dog. She has the perfect temperament. In the meantime Tabitha is helping him with Duchess, an abused border collie mix who's afraid of men. The dogs get along well together and Ezio has been making progress with her. He's about done when he's called by Leo, one of his Night Storm teammates informing him of free food at Kane's. He's only on loan to Night Storm from Omega Team but he will definitely join in the fun at Kane's. The call he gets from Baron, Omega Team's Lieutenant that made me chuckle. Baron's concerned about the way the Night Storm team is finding lasting love, he also wants Ezio back.
The only woman Ezio had been attracted to in a long time didn't live in the area, plus at the time she had recently broken up with her fiancé and he didn't want to be the rebound guy.
As we meet Samantha she's having dinner with her friends David and Toni, they have surprised her with a blind date. A golf buddy of David's who turns out to be the date from hell. This of course leads to much apologizing from David and Toni.
The next night Sam had a fun evening with her best friend Eden. She got advise on a work issue, and ex issue and a heads up that Ezio might contact her. Ezio had found out she's in town at Kane's the night before. Eden was right and Ezio did contact her for a dinner date. Before that date happens her friend Toni springs a plan on her to get her brother back on the wagon again. One that Sam wasn't sure of but couldn't say no to.
I really loved how Ezio and Sam fell into an easy rapport after not seeing each other for so long.
Things go FUBAR pretty quickly with Toni's plan and Sam is stuck in the middle of it all. Oh and just to make things worse her ex shows up.
Plenty of action, suspense, and surprises plus that sizzling romance between Ezio and Sam.
Caitlyn O'Leary had done it again. This is a great book. It has all the feels. Buckle up, it's going to be a wild ride. Ezio Stark and Samantha Brooks met at her almost wedding. He took her for coffee and hasn't been able to get her off his mind for months. Samantha has a huge giving heart and sometimes this leads her to make rash decisions. She is an independent woman and doesn't enjoy being questioned. Ezio is a very protective Navy Seal. He is determined to make sure Samantha is safe, no matter what. When these two forces collide, there's bound to be fireworks. Will they find their way to the HEA they deserve? Get this book ASAP and find out. Sorry, no spoilers. I received this ARC and here is my honest review
Her Intense Protector by Caitlyn O’Leary is an awesome book. This is the fourth book in the Night Storm series but can be read as a standalone. This book had me crying, angry, etc. I had all the feels. This book has action, suspense, drama, heat, romance, Navy SEALs, angst, long-standing love, relationship issues, life or death situation, each of the main characters have baggage they need to work on, secrets. This book was a roller coaster ride that kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading it and I could not put the book down. The book is well written and has very likeable characters. I can’t wait for the next by Ms. O’Leary. I highly recommend this book.
WOW! Another FANTASTIC story by Caitlyn! This story is about Ezio (very intriguing name) and Samantha. Samantha is a kind hearted gal who seems to get herself into trouble. Ezio is the one who saves her and she has stolen his heart as he has stolen her heart. These two were basically made for each other. When Sam gets kidnapped, Ezio is out of his mind and his team helps find her. In the process, they break a case the Vice Squad was having trouble finding the big guy. Once Sam is rescued by Ezio and his team, she recovers at his place. He then shows her his gift to her - Duchess - and a proposal for their happily ever after! FANTASTIC job Caitlyn! I would highly recommend this book! Can't wait for the next book.
From the moment I started to read this novel I knew it was the book for me! Both Samantha and Ezio were very interesting characters because they were older and had settled into their careers. Samantha was the perfect female heroine, she was brave and smart. Ezio was the perfect male hero, he was good looking, smart and a Seal of course!The novel moved at a respectable pace and was interesting throughout! I would highly recommend this novel especially for women who enjoy reading romantic suspence. GO FOR IT READERS!!!
First, I just want to say if Toni and were David were my friends and set me up on a blind date with Larry, I would seriously reconsider our friendship lol. Then to go along with Toni's hair-brained idea of getting into poker game to get her brother out? How many ways of bad to worse could that go? But Ezio is there to get to her before she is seriously hurt or worse? How mad are the guys the first time they have to find her and how many more times does that happen? Will Sam and Ezio finally admit their feelings to each other?
Once again Caitlyn has given us a wonderful read. Enzo was always thinking of one woman. But she was a long ways away. Samantha got herself together and ready for her new life and away from men. However, when she's in trouble a certain seal will come to the rescue. question is will he keep her safe? Will they finallly find each other?
Her Intense Protector is a good story that was filled with humor, suspense and love. Absolutely loved Sam she tried to find good in everything that happened. She also did not put up with Ezio's caveman tendencies. Her one liners were great, I loved the way she avoided discussions. Great addition to the story. Happy Reading!!
