Unexpected Protector by Sloan Johnson Blog Tour

Everyone makes mistakes in life. Unfortunately, Holly Richards has become an expert at taking the wrong path in life. This time, she may have gone so far that she has alienated the one person who has always been there for her. Will she be able to make the right decision for once in her life?
Tommy Reed’s world shifted the night he found Holly Richards lying in a pool of blood on the ground. For reasons he can’t explain, he feels the need to protect Holly from her own past. In the process, he’s hoping to also teach her that there is more to D/s than releasing pent up emotions. Life isn’t easy for the former-junkie and the cop. Some of those closest to Tommy are less than thrilled with his devotion to Holly. Those who pressured Holly into her former life are worried she’ll share what she knows. Is there any way for both of them to come away from the situation unscathed?

5+ stars
I LOVE this book and this series! In the first book Unexpected Angel I admit I thought it was going to be just a bunch of kinky sex and no real story but I was so wrong. She told a beautiful, loving, and respectful D/s story that made me fall in love not only with the alpha male of that book, Dylan but also with the other characters. She has created a whole world of wonderful caring characters. 

Tommy and Holly were introduced in UA and there story picks up in Unexpected Protector.  You not only learn more about Tommy and Holly who are the main characters in UP but Sloan continues to build and tell more about the Isthmus Alliance. Both Holly and Tommy try to pretend or make people believe they are strong and don't need anyone but you can see as the story unfold that they need each other more than the other lets on. It is almost like you fall in love with them as they fall in love with each other. The only thing is will their feeling for each other be able to withstand their friends and their pasts? 



OK now that you have been warned I will go on. This is not a spoiler alert for Unexpected Protector so much as it is for the first book Unexpected Angel. If you HAVE NOT READ UNEXPECTED ANGEL THIS IS YOUR FINAL WARNING. 

Unexpected Protector picks up where Unexpected Angel left off. Holly is in the hospital and Tommy is there with here. He felt a pull toward her the night that she led her best friend in to danger. She was beat and put in the hospital now she has to forgive herself and work twice as hard to make their friends forgive her and prove that she has changed and is not going to go back to being the junkie she was. Tommy has his own demons he has to work on and help Holly stay clean and be the person she wants to be and the person he knows she can be. While doing that he also has to prove to her that she deserves to be happy and she can be loved for who she is. This is a story not only about love between two people but also of friendship, strength to overcome, willingness to let others in and help, and the power to move on and better yourself no matter what others think. It was a fantastic story and I will try to wait patiently for the next book in the series but I really feel like I am missing close friends. 

I nod, my throat constricted by the emotion I’m not used to feeling. “Good girl,” he whispers in my ear before drawing the lobe into his mouth, sucking and nipping. He continues working his way down my neck, biting my collarbone harder than I’m used to. I jerk in surprise, but not in pain. “Don’t stop,” I beg him. My mind doesn’t seem to process the fact that he’s on the wrong end of my body to make my core clench tight. I never knew before now that it’s possible to be driven to climax without any direct contact with either my nipples or pussy. I scream his name as my head falls back, eventually allowing my head to come back to rest on his shoulder. “Such a responsive girl,” he praises me as he holds me close to him. “What about you?” I ask when my breathing returns to normal.
