Title: Rebel’s Karma
Author: Rebecca Zanetti
Series: Dark Protectors #13
Release Date: June 8, 2021
Benjamin Reese has spent the past three years searching for the beautiful blonde who is a part of the Kurjan nation. She is his mate and he is determined to save her, but what will he do when he realizes she is a spy?
I have been waiting for Benny’s book since he was introduced. This crazy and hilarious man clearly deserved a happy ending with a wonderful woman. I was a little leery of starting this book because I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Karma but I was completely wrong. Karma is a strong, determined woman who is a survivor. She is the perfect partner for Benny because she balances him out. I also loved that they both loved cooking and would cook together.
There was more to Benjamin than I was expecting. He puts himself before the other members on his team frequently because he knows they have mates to go home to. I loved his determination to protect his brothers. Karma throws a wrench in these plans and he struggles to deal with his feelings for her. I enjoyed his struggle to deal with his feelings and his duty to the Seven, but it does work out in the end. Also Benny was surprisingly adorable with the kids.
One of the things I love about this series is that while they are fated mate romances, the love is not instant and it develops over time. I really enjoyed Benny and Karma’s relationship and how they put off mating for so long. It really made for a richer relationship in my opinion.
For the overall story, there was a lot of development between the Kurjan and the Seven. They found out new information about the Kurjan leader and were able to strike a couple of blows to them. Ulrik is still a threat to the world that keeps getting closer. I can’t wait to pick up the next book because things are getting intense and I need to know what is going to happen next.
