Book Review: "Protecting Fate" (Katee Robert)

An unwise career move lands Sara Reaver in serious trouble, as the prime target of some very unfriendly people. Her brother Garrett enlists his best friend and former military man Zebadiah "Z" Loreto as her bodyguard, to keep her safe by whatever means necessary, apparently not realizing that what Sara might need the most is someone to protect her from Z.

Sara thoroughly resents being locked away for her own good and decides to seek out something ... physical ... from Z to try to forget her predicament and feel better. Z would be willing, especially when he finds out that her unconventional desires mirror his own, except that the last time he lost control with a woman, he landed in prison for it. No guarantees that won't happen again.

Lovers of kink and BDSM, take note! Entangled Publishing's Brazen imprint presents Protecting Fate, by Katee Robert, just released this month.

Character Sara Reaver is as different and unorthodox as they come, a walking dichotomy. She manages to be strong, courageous, and self-contained on the one hand, she harbors a secret longing to be dominated, to submit to someone, to lose all control. And she's determined to get her way, even if she has to seduce Z to make it happen.

Z, for his part, is a natural-born control freak and leader, making him the perfect choice to give Sara what she wants. That he's been burned before by his participation in the BDSM lifestyle, though, becomes painfully clear the longer he works to keep Sara at bay (and, true to form, she doesn't make it easy on him). He's also a man of integrity and honor, torn between his desire for Sara and his loyalty to her older brother.

Sometimes, finding oneself between a rock and a hard place makes every doubt fade away and everything come clear in one's mind.

In true Brazen imprint format, the sexual content torches off (quite literally) an open door to a deeper relationship between the characters. If you like your romances Fifty Shades of Grey unorthodox, you may be disappointed, but even this slightly softer side of BDSM proves mind-blowing.

And then there's the snark between Sara and Z, and later with Sara's brothers when they get involved. The story is worth the read for the quick comebacks and devastating one-liners alone.

Prepare for a scintillating read, thick with desire, control, submission, and erotic romance ... probably more than you bargained for.
