Tour Stop Slade, The Protectors series by Teresa Gabelman

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.



I've been waiting for this book for a long time now. The teasers we got to read throughout the series drove me nuts. I wanted Slade and Jill's story, like last year. 

I couldn't wait to jump into it and read it! I even pushed aside the book I was then reading for my girl-crush, Jill.

Well. Let me put it like this, it's going to be an I liked/disliked review, something I've never written before.

What I liked:

Jill: she's still a badass and so awesome. Her family kicked her out when she became a half-breed, and while that devastated her and broke her, she managed to pick herself up and make something of herself. She's not one to  shy away from things and she's up to any challenge.
The Warriors: they're still funny and they still kick major ass.
Slade: though it's kind of 50-50, because there were times I wanted to smack him bad.

What I disliked:

It seemed to me like the thing between Jill and Slade was done in a rushed way; like the emphasis wasn't really on them. There was all that built-up in the previous books and OMG scenes - hello, Slade Train - and when it got down to it, to them finally becoming a couple, it was kind of a letdown for me. I don't know why, but this one wasn't as good as the previous books. Something was missing and it didn't rise up to my expectations. Hopefully, the next book will be better.

So, as much as it hurts, I'm giving this book 3 1/2 stars.
