Living a life of privilege isn’t always what it seems to be. While Walker has never wanted for anything material-wise, the two things he doesn’t have are his parents’ love and support. Walker tries his hardest to be the perfect son by allowing his father, the Governor, to dictate his life for him. All that changes when an awful day leads to a brutal night, causing Walker to fear for his safety and hire the only person he knows can protect him.
Peace and an easy way of living, that’s all Beckett wants after serving twelve years in the army. Working for his Uncle Rusty’s bar as a doorman and occasional bouncer, the last thing the tattooed man with the take-no-crap attitude needs is to have to save the obnoxious kid who gives him attitude at the door. After ensuring that he’ll survive, and having a not so pleasant run-in with the guy’s parents, he leaves the hospital never expecting to see him again.
Vows of Protection is the first book in what appears to be a fantastic new series, Personal Protectors, by Brittany Cournoyer.
When we meet Walker, he's upset on having caught his best friend and boyfriend together. Soon he ends up at a bar, gets into a fight, and is helped by Beckett. And what a man Beckett turns out to be! Not only is he a former military man who has PTSD, he is the perfect man to help Walker.
Someone is targeting Walker, so he hires Beckett to be his bodyguard. What follows is a gripping adventure that involves danger, mystery, suspense, and a whole lot of emotion.
Together, Walker and Beckett make for a superb couple. Both men are suffering in their own way, but they each manage to help the other through their pain, embarrassment, shame and fear.
The writing is fantastic, grabbing my attention immediately, with a story that flows so damn well, and extremely developed characters. Brittany has a beautiful way with words, as her descriptions are accomplished. She really knows how to paint a scene.
And with Walker and Beckett, we are treated to a whole lot of fun bickering and some great sarcasm as well.
In a short time, Brittany Cournoyer has made her way onto my list of favorite authors. She has great stories to tell, uses a great writing style and manages to keep me reading late into the night with each book. Do not miss out on this new series that starts with Vows of Protection!
