Highly trained VC Warrior, Dr. Slade Buchanan’s, role between lifesaver and lifetaker has been a constant battle, but nothing prepared him for half-breed VC Warrior trainee, Jill Nichols. Slade realizes his struggles from the past were nothing compared to the difficulty of resisting the woman who could never belong to a man like him.
Being the only female VC Warrior recruit, Jill Nichols, has an uphill battle. Falling for the sexy doctor, Slade Buchanan, has not made the battle any easier, especially when he constantly reminds her and others there will never be anything between them. Working harder than any male recruit, obstacles are thrown in her path, and with each challenge, it becomes clear that the two things she wants most may never be.
Slade (The Protectors #6) by Teresa Gabelman
Slade & Jill
ALL ABOARD THE SLADE TRAIN!
I received this book free from the Author for an honest opinion!
I’ve been waiting for this one. Been waiting, drooling, and panting for Dr. McHottie’s book to come out. Ever since Slade was introduced into this series, I’ve been lingering on the edge of madness to get a piece of him. All that fingernail biting ended on the day Slade got delivered to my kindle! Mmmm… Slade! Lemme tell you people, it was worth the wait and the crusty nubs left of my fingers! This books is so much more than I thought it would be. It’s got your hot VC Warriors, the equally hot and sexy women, and so much humor that I (as well as my hubs) found myself laughing out loud more times than I can count.
Well, I’d like to tell you that Slade melted my heart, buuuuut…. just kidding… he did just that and so much more. With every story Teresa writes that Slade is in, my love grew more and more with every written word about him. He’s mysterious, he’s bossy, he’s outrageously brawny, and he’s oh so damn sexy! One thing that kept me from throwing my arms around him and claiming him for my own was the fact that he was still denying his feelings for Jill. I hate that… made my heart hurt! God this man drove me crazy.
“I’ve wanted you, against my will, from the first moment I saw you. You have haunted me, but I’m warning you, Jillian, once you are mine, it will be body and soul. Do you understand me?” ~Slade
Jill on the other hand. This is a girl with a purpose. A need to show everyone and anyone who she is and how hard-hitting she can be. From where she came from and where she’s going to, her story is one that almost broke me. Even with a few minor set backs and derogatory comments, this girl never loses her sense of humor. She runs with the boys, she’s better than the boys, and she’s not afraid to show it. My kinda girl! That flashing yellow light part… O…M…G!!!!
“Well, if my boob is supposed to pop out as well as my ass cheeks, then this should do just fine.” ~Jill
Great supporting character cast. Sid is his same funny bunny self! Always throwing out zingers at everyone! Adam and Steve have wormed their way into my heart with their over protective nature where Jill is concerned! Love those two! All the girls, Pam, Lana, Caroline, Tessa, Nicole, and Angelina… boy if I had all those bitches in my corner I’d be grinning from ear to ear. That stripper pole tutorial was the best! Of course Teresa’s villains are outstanding and make this story that much richer even though I want to set their faces on fire and put it out with a fork. Especially that evil Alice. Wow, never thought I’d actually hate a character that much!
To sum this one up, it’s superb in its storyline and keeps you glued to its pages with its compelling story and powerful characters. The dialogue is just right, amusing, and persuasive. It flowed with grace and beauty. It was effortless to read and the pacing is perfect. I never thought I’d say this, but I’m totally looking forward to reading about Sloan. He kind of pissed me off a bit and I wasn’t sure about him, but now all I can think about is the woman who will bring him to his knees! It’s 299 (kindle version) pages long and just right for this reader!
