Called to Protect Reviews
Wow, this book is chock full of exciting moments and it is a suspenseful ride from the get-go. I enjoyed getting to know Chloe a little better and Blake and Rachel were great additions to this series. The mystery/suspense part of the plot flowed well an kept me invested throughout the book. Another winner for Lynette Eason!!
I received this book from the publisher and was not required to post a positive review. All thoughts are my own.
Well, I loved this book a lot more than I thought I was going to!
A relatively minor gripe--I didn't feel like the blurb matched the story that well. The romantic tension was so light I'm not even sure it was there. Yes, the romance was there (very light and beautiful), but the whole "can't trust another man" attitude just never seemed right for the Chloe I saw. Yes, she'd been hurt, but that didn't stop her from reaching out to Blake or from accepting his attentions when he started offering them ...more
FTC DISCLOSURE: I received an electronic copy of this book from NetGalley. A positive review was not required. These are my honest thoughts and opinions.
My favorite two things about this book were how much the talents of K-9 officer Hank were featured and that the human trafficking angle was handled so expertly as to highlight the dangers of it while not delving into the nastiest parts. The author handled both of these things like an old pro, with lots of grace, spot-on details, and creativity.
Lynette Eason knows her game when it comes to writing suspense. Even though her novels are titled Romantic Suspense, they are heavier on the suspense than romance, which is how I like my romantic suspense. In her newest series Blue Justice, the second book Called to Protect is a fast pace hunt for teenage girls, and Eason has me flipping through the pages hunting for the resolution.
Eason knows her research or at least how to find information with actual police officers to make her story ring tr ...more
My thoughts: Lynette Eason is one of those authors I just can't put down. CALLED TO PROTECT is the second book in this series, but it stands alone so readers do not have to read the first book (Oath of Honor) in order to understand this one.
Having teenage daughters this book was kind of hard to read since it is about the sex-trafficking ring and shows how easy it is to lure girls in. While Rachel may not have trusted the man who took her and her friend, she did go with them, and that is where sh ...more
'God, why is this happening? Why do you hate me? What did I ever do to you?'
In this second installment of her Blue Justice series, Eason shines! Chloe St. John and her German Shepherd Dog partner, Hank, are a team. He is probably the only male that she likes. She is so over romance.
Deputy U.S. Marshall Blake MacCallum is assigned protection duty to a judge who is trying to get stiffer sentences for human trafficking. When Blake's daughter is kidnapped with orders that she will not be released u ...more
Called To Protect is the second book in the Blue Justice series that takes place in Columbia, South Carolina. The series revolves around the St. Johns family of law enforcement and the medical profession. It is a large family and I am happy to think that maybe that means a long series is in store. The matriarch of the family is the Chief of Police and the siblings work in the same police department as well as the FBI. This is the story of Chloe and her K-9 Partner, Hank, and a family friend, Bla ...more
