Genre: Suspense Romance
Seven years ago she broke his heart…
Leaving Vincent was the hardest thing Jordan Alvarado ever had to do, but she had no choice. Now she’s back and looking for forgiveness so she can move on with her life. She doesn’t expect the smoldering attraction between them to still be there, burning hotter than ever. After the way she hurt him she knows things will never be the same again and that in the end, she’s the one who will get her heart broken when he walks away.
He’s not letting her go again…
Former SEAL Vincent Hansen never got over Jordan and the way she up and left him without a trace. After she suddenly reappears and explains what happened, he’s even more furious. He doesn’t know what he wants from her, but when she’s targeted in a series of potentially deadly attacks, he realizes he can’t give her up again. He won’t. Now he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe and convince her that she was always meant to be his.
I enjoyed Protecting His Witness but overall, it didn’t stand out for me. The action was fast paced and the suspense was excellent as always with the perfect amount of romance thrown in. Initially, I worried that there would be a lot of focus on Vincent’s anger toward Jordan but I was happily surprised by how quickly things worked out. Others may have disliked it but considering why Jordan disappeared, I felt that Vincent couldn’t hold onto his anger forever. I do wish that Jordan had moved on a bit more after 7 years but instead she’s pretty much stayed devoted to Vincent. I can understand that in the first few years because I’m sure she hoped to go back home but after so much time it just seems a bit unrealistic. I did appreciate that Jordan never criticizes Vincent for moving on and sleeping with other women.
Both Vincent and Jordan were such passionate people and they really fit each other so well. When Jordan first shows up again you can feel all the emotions they’re both going through and Katie Reus does a fantastic job of pushing that emotion into the reader. One element that really jumped out to me was Vincent’s sister, Zoe, who really made an impression on the page. I can’t wait to get to her book in the series.
3 stars – it was good
