Damon DeMasters is a vampire warrior who has taken an oath to protect his own kind as well as humans. As a social worker, Nicole Callahan fights for the right of every child placed in her care. Damon has been ordered to train Nicole and her colleagues against the dangers they now face. Even as sparks fly, Nicole and Damon depend on each other to protect the children of both races.
The VC Warriors are an elite group of vampire who protect innocents, whether human or those of their own race. Jared Kincaid, along with other Warriors, are shocked when a fiery red head with a gun and attitude, bring news of young teens being turned into an army of half-breed vampires capable of taking out all VC Warriors.
Breaking into the famed VC Warriors compound was definitely not the smartest thing Tessa Pride has ever done, but she will do anything for her brother, Adam. The Warriors held the one person she knew was responsible for her brother being turned into a half-breed and nothing will stop her from getting what she needs to help her brother, not even a Warrior whose eyes could make her melt with one look.
Jared and Tessa join forces in a desperate scramble to find who is responsible. With a war between Warriors and half-breeds brewing, suspicions of traitors in their midst put the lives of everyone involved on the line
Book 1: Damon
Damon stopped in the middle of the mat and turned toward her, “Lay down and spread your legs.”
Nicole stopped suddenly, her eyes shooting from his ass to his face. “Ah, most guys buy me a drink first.” At his raised eyebrow, Nicole snorted, “Okay. Sorry. Just a joke. You know you can probably buy a sense of humor on Craigslist.”
“There’s nothing wrong with my sense of humor.” Once she was on the ground, he knelt between her legs. “I just didn’t find that funny.”
Nicole rolled her eyes then gasped when he grabbed both her wrists and held them above her head with one hand. “Hey!”
Book 2: Jared
“Ah, no way. I’m driving,” Tessa shook her head. “This is my boss’s car and if anything happens to it, it’s my ass…literally.”
“Give me the keys, Tessa,” his tone was as firm as his glare.
“No.” Backing away, Tessa stuck them in her front pocket with a smirk, “I drive or you walk.”
Jared grabbed her so fast, sticking his hand in her front pocket fishing out the keys, that Tessa didn’t have time to react. He dangled the keys in front of her, “Who’s walking?”
*This is a joint review of books 1 & 2 (Damon & Jared)*
I am totally loving the VC (Vampire Council) Warriors. So far I have only read the first 2 books in the series but will definitely be reading the whole series. I loved the characters and the story was engaging. Both books hooked me from the very beginning of the book. I actually read them back to back in one day.
The characters (especially the warriors) are just awesome. Their fierce, protective, sweet, comforting, territorial, hilarious, and sexy as hell. The girls (Nicole & Tessa) are fiercely independent, protective of friends and family, have huge hearts, yet both deal with insecurities. Both couples complement each other really well and also fit well together as a group. There were many times I found myself laughing out loud while reading this book but also times I was on the edge of my seat reading as fast I as my eyeballs will move so I can find out what the heck is going on. I feel totally invested in this group of characters and I still have 2 more books in the series to read!
The story line in both books were intriguing and had me trying to figure out what was going on while also rooting for the couple in the story and drooling over some downright steamy scenes. These first 2 books in the Protectors series have definitely got me hooked and I will be reading the other books for sure. They stories flowed really well and scenes and dialogue transitioned smoothly. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series. Fantastic job and a 5 out of 5 books on both stories!
