Review: Jax (The Protectors, #8) by Teresa Gabelman

JAX

Jax Wheeler has been fighting his own demons for as long as he can remember. One of those demons is from his past, a brother who wants nothing more to see Jax suffer. Working closely with the Cincinnati Branch of the VC Warriors Jax never thought he would find someone who could help him ease his pain, but he was wrong.

Having a past of her own, Caroline Fitzpatrick has survived being put into a trance by a madman who wanted to control her sister, a abusive relationship, communicating with the dead, but nothing has prepared her for Jax Wheeler. From the moment she saw him the attraction was immediate, but the attraction was not mutual or was it?

The more Jax tries to stay away from Caroline, the more he finds himself at her door, in her life. All he knows is that every minute he spends with the beautiful school teacher, the more danger he puts her in. His brother’s vengeance of wanting him to suffer has put Caroline in the line of fire and only Jax can protect her.

MY REVIEW

Jax by Teresa Gabelman
Jax & Caroline
FUNNY, CUTE, AND SEXY
4 Stars

First and foremost I totally love this series! Some books more than others and this one I didn’t completely fall in love with like I did others. Don’t get me wrong I liked it a whole bunch, but it just didn’t make me fall in love with it. It has humor, wit, and charm, and even some pretty steamy sex scenes. I think if you like this series you’re going to like this book.

Jax is your typical alpha male vampire who has an enormous chip on his shoulders. A chip the size of his ass wipe brother Mika! Of course he can’t be near the one he wants to be near for fear of hurting her physically and mentally. Sometimes I almost felt like he was too serious and needed to lighten up just a little bit more, but I still love him none-the-less.

Usually I fall more in love with the male character then I do the female character. Not in this case! I completely and utterly love Caroline. She’s comical, she’s serious, and despite her tiny frame she’s tough as nails! Caroline is still renovating that old piece of shit farmhouse that she bought and she’s so determined that you just want to hug her and grab a paint brush and help her out. I like the fact that she doesn’t beat around the bush where Jax is concerned. She’s definitely a strong female lead character.

The supporting character cast is vast to say the least. I always love to see some of my previous book boyfriends show up and their better halves. I seriously cannot wait to read Sloan’s book. He’s such a crab ass that I can’t wait to see who takes his ass on!

All is all, it’s an extremely well written book. The pacing is good, the dialogue flowed. I just didn’t feel as connected to this book as I have to others in this series. For me it was good, but not great. I think maybe there wasn’t enough tension built up throughout to make the climax stand out sufficiently. I still can’t wait to read Sloan though… I’m sure that one will knock my socks off!

A Warrior Wedding by Teresa Gabelman
Jill & Slade & the rest of the gang
I LAUGHED, I CRIED, AND I FELL IN LOVE!This is the 7th installment into the insanely rockin’ series of The Protectors. It’s got a little of everything in it. Although it focuses on Jill and Slade and their upcoming nuptials, it also dabbles in the rest of the warrior’s lives. This is still packed with much action, steamy hot sexual content, and some uber funny shit!Jill is sick. Not just any sick… she’s incurable and according to everything being researched, she doesn’t have much time left. Of course Slade is working his fingers to the bone trying to come up with a solution that won’t effect Jill adversely or the other half-breeds that are coming down with the same illness. Jill on the other hand has moved up her wedding from 3 weeks away to 1 week away and is now going to share it with all her sisters.. Tessa, Pam, Lana, and Angelina! She’s also more concerned with everyone else rather than her own well being! Jill is truly a noble human being!

The storyline has so many twist and turns and introduces a new Ex-Warrior Blaze.. ooo-lah-lah. This guy is dark and mysterious and I can’t wait to read more about him.

I was pleasantly surprised at the way Jax is turning out! He seemed like such a dick in the last books that I was almost writing him off… not now… now I think I love him! In fact, I know I love him! His book will prolly make me cry my eyes out, but I’m sure will be well worth it. Caroline will most definitely give him a run for his money… and his heart!

So, we get to see more of Hunter, the wolf shifter from the Lee County Wolves series and holy hell… that dude is rockin’ the humor and hotness! I bet his book will melt panties! At this moment he’s getting more ass than a toilet seat, but something tells me he’ll be blindsided by some hottie in no time!!

Steve is so damn funny… I can hardly type this about him without laughing my ass off… I loved ALL of his dialogue. When Blaze was attempting to set him on fire… Steve grabs Jill’s napkin, patting his forehead… “Shit, it’s hot in here. Are you hot? I’m burning up.”

To wrap this up, I was glued to my kindle from cover to cover. This books has everything you’ll need for a well rounded story. Love, hate, humor, action, sex, and did I mention humor? Bwahahahaha… too many laugh out loud moments to mention! The characters were very relatable and their dialogue flowed and felt natural. There’s plenty of tension and an excellent climax. I love Teresa Gabelman books and have yet to find one that wasn’t a complete five star read!

♥MY REVIEW♥

Forbidden Hunger by Teresa Gabelman
Garrett & Janna
MARKING MY TERRITORY NOW!! GARRETT IS MINE!!

I was given a copy by Teresa for an honest evaluation. Let me see, where to begin… I read this in one afternoon. It’s not a short read nor is it uber lengthy either, however it’s that good that I could not put it down for one second until I read the last words. This story comes complete with an enormous alpha male, a hard-hitting and hilarious female lead, and loads and loads of action and suspense.

Garrett Foster is the pack leader of the Lee County wolves and holy smokes is he divine. When Garrett is presented with a young woman and two small children trying to enter his town of course he’s going to question them and find out exactly what their reason for being there is. That first meeting gave me chills up and down my spine, I just knew I was going to adore him. He rules with a firm hand and a soft heart and it doesn’t hurt that he is drop dead gorgeous.

Janna Lawson is all kinds of a ooey gooey goodness. She’s a tiny little thing but can hold her own. She’s on a mission that would make most of us cringe. Not Janna, she trembles on the inside but stay strong for herself, her mother, and the two cutie pie kids she picks up along the way. I didn’t always agree with some of her decisions, but in my heart I knew why she made them. Definitely an excellent heroine!

Outstanding supporting character cast. Garrett’s brothers Marcus and Hunter cracked me right the hell up. I just love stories that pepper in such good humor to make you chuckle in the face of danger and what story wouldn’t be complete without a villain. Jasper and Evan Simone. They scared the shit out of me at times. it’s just made the story that much richer.

All in all I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read. It was sexy, scary, suspenseful, and adventurous. I haven’t read a paranormal in quite some time and this little novella seemed to pull me right back into the genre. The writing style was effortless to read and the pacing was perfect. I have loved Teresa Gabelman’s books since first reading her VC warriors books. Great job Miss Gabelman, keep up the good work.
