ARC Review: The Protector by Anna Hackett

Title: The Protector

Author: Anna Hackett 

Series: Norcross Security #9

Pages: 245

4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

One minute Saskia Hawke is dancing on stage, and the next she has been abducted by a very wealthy and powerful man who is determined to keep her. She is determined to escape, and hopes that Camden Morgan will come rescue her. 

The final Morgan brother finally falls in love! I have been eagerly waiting for Cam’s book for a while now and I am so happy it’s here. I loved every minute of Cam and Saskia’s story. Cam is still struggling to readjust to civilian life and suffers from survivor’s guilt. He doesn’t believe he is good enough for any woman, but especially Saskia. I really enjoyed seeing Cam heal a little and open up to love. 

“I will only ever see the hero, even if he’s a little battered and dinged.”

Saskia is a dedicated ballerina. She is determined, strong willed, and extremely compassionate about Cam’s struggles. She is a true friend to Cam and lets him set the pace of their relationship for a long time. The kidnapping accelerated things and it makes them both realize how much they want each other, and how quickly it can be taken away. Saskia was just a wonderful heroine who was the perfect partner for Camden. 

“When you dance, you bring emotion to life and bring beauty into the world. That’s your gift. Mine’s to fight, to kill, to protect.”

These two’s relationship was filled with a lot of action, tension, and a lot of intense kisses. It was just the perfect blend for me. I am a bit sad that this is the last Norcross personnel to fall in love but it’s been a great journey. I also can’t wait to learn more about Killian and the Sentinel Security team!

Trigger warnings: kidnapping, survivors guilt, death of a friend referenced, PTSD, death of a parent by overdose referenced.
