I have no idea why I cannot find myself advancing in my likeness of author Donna Grant's, "Sons of Texas," series, but I don't love the series. The latest "The Protector," did not improvement my opinion.
I was slightly caught off guard when I found this book read like a film script. I felt like the characters were entirely pushed into certain circumstances that allowed their reunion. Sadly neither Cullen nor Mia was that interesting as mostly the book is military action or at least military thinking with the romance highlighting the backdrop of the story.
Per usual contemporary romances that deal with a solider theme Cullen was rough around the edges and a risk taker. I respect his military background, but I did not need all the hype to convince me that Cullen himself possessed the ability to be a hero.
Mia's character seemed distant and she tried too hard to be a tough gal. Mia was far too busy trying to convince Cullen as well as herself that she could take care of herself. To put it simply both characters were a little boorish for what was supposed to be more of a thrilling, dangerous romance.
After giving some thought I think I plan to cut my losses and move on from this series as I am not finding it to live up to my own expectations of what I want to see in modern romances of any theme.
