Book Review: A Protectors Family Christmas (The Protectors, Book 5.5) by Sloane Kennedy

Book Review: A Protectors Family Christmas (The Protectors, Book 5.5) by Sloane Kennedy

It’s the holidays for a group of very special men who’ve managed to become a family in the last year and while all the guys are coming together to celebrate Hawke and Tate’s upcoming wedding, a few of them have big plans of their own…

A change of plans…
Newlyweds Ronan and Seth are settling into married life as Ronan considers his return to medicine and Seth starts dreaming of a future that may include the pitter patter of little feet a lot sooner rather than later.

Building a future…
Knee deep in wedding preparations, Hawke and Tate are celebrating something even more important – Matty’s final round of chemotherapy treatment. As they anxiously await confirmation that their son is finally in remission, both men strive to give their little boy a normal life including a new house, playdates with Matty’s new best friend, Leo, and a new support system of men and women who are starting to seem a lot like family.

An important question to ask…
Meanwhile, Mav is looking to make things official with Eli despite the young man’s busy schedule with medical school. But before he can ask the man of his dreams that very important question, he has to get past Eli’s family first, including a posse of two overprotective fathers, several intrusive uncles and a little girl who just wants to brush Mav’s hair!
Figuring it all out…
With Memphis, Brennan and Tristan settling into their newfound relationship and our favorite threesome from New York visiting for the wedding, there are plenty of chances for old friends to connect and new bonds to be formed.

The best kind of chaos…
And of course, what wedding wouldn’t be complete without a little drama including some white hot sexual tension between a not so old grandfather and a certain cocky bodyguard? Add in some more Barrettis, a couple of precocious kids, several dogs, one spoiled cat and a gaggle of new, hot alpha men and you’ve got the perfect storm for a holiday that only the Protectors could pull off!

5* An amazing Thanksgiving present for fans of SK and her men. But, Logan and Dom still rule!!!

I'm lucky enough to have beta'd this book and it was EVERYTHING I could have wanted in a catch-up tale and for SK's men, who continue to win my heart with each new release. I'm a massive fan of SK's, a massive fan of her men, a massive romantic and absolutely love HEAs in my romance, and this book delivered on every count.

We get to see SK's men loving each other and living life and living their HEAs. We get to see even more commitments being made. We get to see love, family, caring and sharing, and we get to be party to an amazing wedding with some of the most heartfelt vows I've ever come across. And, we get to see more of a few characters who're scheduled for their own tales, though for one couple in particular, there'll be a it of a wait, but SK gave us little glimpses to tide us over and to let us see the bond between them that distance and time haven't lessened. We also get to see a glimpse of Magnus and Dante in a scene that takes the latter from being a bit of a d*ck to a guy who, as little Matty puts it, is "...really a good guy, but sometimes he just does bad things.”

And, we get brilliant news about little Matty, who's perhaps the most perfect, sweetest yet most non-obnoxious child ever created in a novel and who's perhaps a bit of an angel here on earth - love that kid and looking forward to his own tale one day. Hint. Hint. 

There's a bonus at the end of the tale, featuring my all-time fave SK leads, Logan and Dom, some nine years into their relationship, which I *know* was written just for me, though SK doesn't play faves and hasn't confirmed this. It's sweet, romantic, sexy, loving, a little sad-sweet and very real, very them, very my kind of HEA.
