By Zarah on 19 May 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
Again, I thought this was an OK read. (I'm seeing a trend.) Cassie has been held captive and experimented on for 5 years, she's attempted escape before, somehow she's established a contact to help her give it another go, and here the book starts. This is all basically explained, but like the prequel, it feels very much like we started in the middle of something. A lot happens off set, so to speak.

I liked the story, I really did. I liked Cassie and Seth, I really did. But believable emotions were relatively scarce in this book. I mean, it pretty much boiled down to, "Oh, you accidentally made me a superhuman...OK, moving on." There was no fear, freakout, anger, really no emotional response at all.

Then there was the 'romance;' if I can call it that. The two of them seemed to have an inexplicable pull towards one another. It felt very much like a standard PNR, 'you're my destined mate' kind of affair, but that's never addressed. Worse yet, it employed the whole 'Oh, I'm having a really erotic dream that I'm somehow mysteriously aware of' trope. When of course, he's awake; of course he's really having real sex, not dream sex. As if that kind of thing EVER happens. It just felt like a cheap plot device to get them past the awkward 'I won't sleep with someone I just met" hurtle.

The sex...it too was OK, though there was a lot of it. There was also a weak attempt to add kink to the sexy bits by "fingering her puckered hole" and blindfolding her, etc. I'll give it props for not being wholly vanilla, but this is supposed to have been a virgin having sex with a man for the first time or two. You'd think one of them would have been a little hesitant and none of that was really necessary in the first place. Honestly, it just didn't feel at all natural.

Well it is def. racy, so much so that it is in danger of being over the top. It swings between the telekinetic, psychic and super powered main characters escape story to their intimate escapades. The concept was reminiscent of Christine Feehans Games series, with genetically altered humans capable of extraordinary powers. I think the writer needs to either decide what type of genre she is writing, romance or paranormal and then tone one of the storylines down, because one overshadows the other in this book. I received a free copy of this book for my review.

2.0 out of 5 stars A good start, but lost it. 1 Mar. 2014
By T.O.Powell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ok, I got this free for my Kindle and I don't normally give negative reviews but I feel I have to weigh in this time. I think the story is fine for those who seem to love it, but I had too many problems with it, and I would definitely NOT recommend it for young readers.

I have to say, it started out really well. I got totally caught up in Cassie's character and in her escape at the very beginning. I was fascinated by the powers she possessed and also her inner strength and determination. I was also intrigued by Seth and the budding chemistry building between the two and was hoping they'd eventually get together (after many problems and interruptions, of course). But then the story started losing me and I eventually just stopped reading.

My issues were:
1. Too Much Sex! Good grief, I know I'm old, but give me a break! Page after page after page of the two main characters having sex with each other - and that's just the "first" time. I swear I skipped over entire chapters because it got so old. I'm not against some erotic scenes in my stories, or even some explicit sex, but I don't need to have it described in every excruciating detail for pages on end. It's good that they fell for each other, but it got ridiculous.
2. Yes, it's supposed to be Sci-Fi, but having sex with a girl can turn you into the "Hulk?" I love a good Sci-Fi, but that was too far-fetched for me.
3. The typos and misused words got a little distracting for me. The author should proof-read more carefully.
4. Plot holes. I got lost several times trying to figure out what just happened, but it was never explained. Events seemed to jump around till I finally gave up.

I apologize if you were offended; that's just my honest opinion. All in all, I think the author has a lot of potential. It could have been a great story, but I was disappointed in this effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superhero meets Romance 15 April 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Cassie is a superhero due to testing that her brother did on her initially to help with her medical problems. She has multiple different abilities to fight others and push other people's minds to do something they had no intent to do. At times, she can hide in plain sight with nobody being able to see her. On the day that she tries to escape the lab once again, she winds up getting Seth involved in her escape. In the process, she also changes his whole life.

As another reviewer stated, this does remind me of the Christine Feehan books. While only a novella, I think this is a good start to her next series, leaving enough questions to try to find out what happened to the others like herself. It moved fairly quickly, and I found it hard to put down for very long. A lot of novellas either rush details, either in plot or character, but I did not find this problem in this one. I look forward to the rest of the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh, come on! It's sci-fi! 6 July 2012
By Jill Marie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I liked this story, even if it was a stretch of the imagination. As for the accusations of it being sex-based, it sort of makes sense. High-stress situations and isolation for years would make someone at least starved to be touched and held. If you buy into the sci-fi theme in the first place, you might as well believe it heightens sex drive, too. We are talking about people becoming supersoldiers and clairvoyants, after all. It's a fast-paced, sexy, romantic, gotta-hide-from-everyone tale. You'll either shrug and go with it or you'll hate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced novella 22 Jun. 2012
By Rhonda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This novella is a fun, quick read and very entertaining. The main characters have great chemistry. There's a little bit of everything in this book: fast paced action, suspense, romance, and paranormal elements that make these two super-heroes. I've already purchased book 2 in this series and can't wait to read more about some of the other characters with these unusual powers. But I hope we get to see more of Cassie and Seth in the future as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for Young Adult Readers 19 Aug. 2012
By KrisSpor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Nana Malone is indeed a good author and she shows that with Reluctant Protector book 1 of the Protectors series. Reluctant Protector contains the real concept of creating 'Human Super Soldiers', a concept that's been tried since at least the time of Hitler. I did enjoy reading Reluctant Protector and think that Nana Malone did a great job. The thrill was there along with the question...would it all that happened be for nothing. I am the type of person who once a book is started will never leave it unfinished even if it turns out not to my liking. Like I said over all Nana Malone is talented and wrote a good book. So why a low rating? I had to skip over an estimated 15% of the book, all of chapter 6 and 2 other parts. I understand sex in books to a point, but the sex scenes in Reluctant Protector are considered pornographic/erotica. I was shocked and appalled to see that in something that is considered Young Adult. Again I understand some authors put sex into books and I am okay with that, but at a certain point it becomes too much and nothing more then erotica. Because I felt Reluctant Protector book 1 of the Protectors by Nana Malone was well written I will give Forsaken Protector book 2 in the Protectors series a chance, I just hope I will not be disappointed.
