Shirlee McCoy: Protective Instincts Mission Rescue #1

I enjoyed this book but the ending left me feeling as though I somehow missed a few pages I thought the romance happened very uickly but that on it s own is okay though I would ve enjoyed conversations between them I was honestly interested in the secondary characters Boone and Stella in particular and hope to read their respective stories sometime soon I received a complimentary copy of this book I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book which I have done still grieving widow Raina is plunged into a nightmare with mysteriously appearing toys of her dead son sudden appearances of a hooded man who is hell bent on killing her and a hardened protector who makes her heart skip a beat and who inspires a yearning so deep in her that it almost makes her frightened The hard uick beat of her heart reminded her of shy first glances and giddy first words of nerve racking first dates and tender first kisses It reminded her of dreams and hopes and yearnings Who is this stalker and what does he want from Raina What is this feeling between Raina and her protector Jackson Can she hope for a love filled future or is thinking of such things a betrayal of the memories of her lost family Will God show Raina the correct wayThat s what had been missing in her life hope in the future belief that life still had wonderful things to offer trust that God would take the bad and make good out of it This is my first book by Shirlee and I thoroughly loved her book The first thing that attracted me to this book was the blurb and then the cover I read the blurb and knew instantly that I had to read this book The cover is also intriguing and will attract the reader The plot is well plotted and executed Shirlee has a simple style of writing which is very down to earth and instantly connects the readers with the story The story flows fluidly at a comfortable pace and I was kept fully engaged in the story right till the very end The characterization is very beautifully done Raina instantly fills our hearts with sympathy a sense of sadness and loss but also makes us admire her strength She is a woman who has lost everything in her life and has also silently faced the accusations of those people who think that had she been a good wife she would have either died with her family or saved them This type of thinking angers me but I also acknowledge that there are people like this all over the world Humans are same everywhere only the upper polish of their style of living the language they speak and the religion they follow is different Jackson is a strong character with protective instincts He has faced loss in his life and so can empathize with Raina s loss He fell for her while rescuing her in Africa where he was part of HEART the rescue team specializing in getting people out from difficult situations and his feelings have only strengthened over time So when someone threatens her Jackson is all set to have a one on one with that person The slow sensual romantic development between Jackson and Raina is fresh and very beautifully portrayed It touched my heart and made me all fuzzy with the warm feeling of love A day when past is only the past and the future is something to hope and dream about He touched her cheek his fingers gentle and warm A day when everything I ve ever hoped for is standing right in front of me Samuel is another important character and he touched my heart and made me pray for children like him all over the world Children who have lost their childhood their family and their sense of security With no one to look after them these children crave love a warmth of family and a place to call homeThere are other characters like Jackson s brother Chance Jackson s teammates Stella and Boone Raina s boss Ke. STALKED After losing her family and then nearly her life when she was held hostage in Africa grieving widow Raina Lowery only wants to put the past behind her Instead she's finding her son's toys in.

The next one in this new series Definitely give this book a 5 star rating and recommend it to anyone I really enjoyed this story It had great suspense and action with a hint of romance After Raina lost her husband and son she went to Africa with her boss Out of the team that went She and her boss were the only ones that survived the trip Jackson worked for Heart They went on missions If Heart could bring someone home reunite loved ones make one less person suffer loss they d do it No matter what the cost It was Jackson and his team that saved Raina and her boss Kent Once they got back to the states Raina had a stalker Once again It was Jackson and his team there protecting her The buildup of the story was really good I had guessed who the stalker was before the end of the book but I still enjoyed the book I did wish the climax was longer Everything Neimhaim (Neimhaim, just happened so fast I liked Raina and Jackson and the little boy that Raina had saved This was Heroine Raina has a stalker Hero Jackson and the members of the private rescue team he belongs to are there to protect her and seek out the stalker s identity The story never really drew me in and I didn t connect with the main characters or feel any chemistry between them Raina kept putting herself at risk even though she knew she was in danger I also didn t think she was in a place in her life emotionally where she should have been taking on the responsibility of raising Samuel the little boy she had brought over to the US from Africa Jackson seemed way too possessive of Raina after only knowing her for a brief time I did like secondary characters Larry Raina s elderly neighbor and Stella Jackson s fellow team member This is the 1st book I read by Shirlee McCoy I liked the action in this story I was into the beginning of this story Then itumped to something else I got confused I felt this story had too much going on it This story would have been really good if it would stayed with one thing instead of so many things Raina Lowery shouldn t have to worry about being killed after she is rescued from an African mission trip that goes bad After all her husband and son are already dead and she should have been except that the HEART rescue team finds her and brings her homeJackson Miller oined the HEART team after his sister is kidnapped after years of searching he has concluded that she will never be found but neither he nor his brother wants other families to suffer as theirs hasEach of these scarred individuals has strong protective instincts so strong that Raina insists on bringing little Joseph who lost his leg in the rescue effort that saves Raina with her when she is brought home As a nurse she knows what Joseph needs in order to live and his kindness to her even as a child soldier is not lost on her Jackson can t seem to get Raina out of his mind even after she is home and safe When Joseph is ready to leave the hospital he agrees to help deliver the boy back to her and runs headlong in a series of mysterious situations that coalesce into a threat to Raina s lifeWho killed a man in her town Who is stalking her Is it the same person who has stolen a stuffed animal that was her late son s favorite And why This book would have been better had the obvious person turned out NOT to be the crazed stalker Jackson was an okay and understanding love interest I kept having problems keeping to exact time line in mind The romance wasn t an afterthought this time Action was decent Samuel was cute but didn t seem like the traumatized 10 year old they were saying he was In fact he kinda takes a huge back seat to the storylineAll in all it was okay Really wanna know what s up with Stella I think I ll be reading her book next if I can get my hands on it. But now it's personal The hardened protector wants to give Raina and himself a second chance at love But first he has to save heragain Mission Rescue No ob is too dangerous for these fearless heroes.
