Warrior by Keira Blackwood

Posted January 27, 2019 by Marsha in Shifter Connected, Shifter Series / 0 Comments

Hard, inked, huge—all anyone sees is the warrior.
But not her.

Cora knows I need excitement and the thrill of a fight because she craves action, too. 
She knows I chat romance books with women twice my age, including her grandmother.
She knows that I’m more than the bodyguard–because she is, too.

She’s struggling to get her new security firm off the ground while setbacks pile up and threats loom. She needs my help, but I’m torn between duty to my pack and allowing myself to embrace what I truly desire.

I’ve always wanted her from afar, and once she’s close, I can’t deny my feelings for her.

Even if she doesn’t know it yet, Cora is my mate.

Title:  Warrior
Series:  Protectors of the Pack #4
Author:  Keira Blackwood
Published:  January 7, 2019
My Rating:  4.5 stars

I’ve never hidden the fact that I love Keira Blackwood’s work, I envy her imagination and I’ve always been entertained by each book she writes…. but my stars above – I’m about to fight Cora for Dax, and while I know full out that I’d lose big time, he would be worth the effort.  I mean, come on – big, strong, sexy, a protective nature, steamy moves in the bedroom… and he reads romance novels and is devoted to the grannies in his romance book club.  How the hell am I not going to fall totally in love with this guy?

So, yeah, I was completely captivated by “Warrior” which is the fourth story in the Protectors of the Pack series.  Dax and Cora are both bodyguards, good at what they do, capable of defending anyone to the death if need be.  Yet things are changing as the Alpha (who Cora has been a bodyguard to) is turning over leadership of the pack to his son… and Cora’s position is now done.  She grabs the opportunity to begin her own security firm, but that means moving to the next town over.  This brings complications in the form of discovering that Dax is her mate, competition in her new location that isn’t above dirty tricks to get the new blood out of town… and figuring out what to do with one handsome, supportive, sexy man who will not turn away from his mate.

I had a blast with “Warrior”.  Loved Dax and Cora together… but the grandmothers, the romance book club meetings, and the shenanigans that these feisty, spry older ladies get up to are a pure delight and hilarious to read.  If you love a good story, characters you can like and cheer on, some danger, a puzzle to figure out, great secondary characters… and one very unique romance reading hero, then you’ll absolutely love “Warrior”.  I’d not hesitate to recommend this story or this entire series to any Paranormal Romance or Shifter Romance reader.  I had fun, and that’s the whole point of getting lost in another world.

I read this title through my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
