What would have made Protecting Fiona better?
I felt like Cookie was so overpowering. He declared Fiona "mine" so many times I was starting to wonder whether he would eventually isolate her and then abuse her. Furthermore, I don't mind when characters are meek or lonely, but I had a hard time imagining a woman could be so repulsive, shy, weird, or whatever, that she would go on vacation alone and not a soul on earth would look for her.
What do you think your next listen will be?
I will continue the series because the first few were better and I liked her other series.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Stella Bloom?
What character would you cut from Protecting Fiona?
No one. I would improve Fiona and Cookie.

ok this book started off with the formula and then broke away. The seal is in a situation and there was an opening for the chick to "save his life" and she takes it. She's super bad ass in the beginning and then her issues come out to play leaving her a mental damsel in distress and only her big bad SEAL can save her. THis book breaks the formula slightly because there is no danger or drama in the end to threaten the couple's relationship. Her issues are all in her head. She suffers from PTSD.
NOW the reason this book gets 2 stars is this. Our heroine was kidnapped and was kept in the jungles of Mexico. She was there for THREE MONTHS. I'm not spoiling anything since this information is given in like the first or second chapters. WHile in captivity with sex traders for 3mos she is 100% ABUSED. She immediately trusts (crap i can't remember which dude he is because there are so many freaking names in the book for each character so now i gotta go look it up.) Cookie and he totally jumps into insta-love with her. one week and a few days after her rescue they are doing some pretty heavy petting. All my mind kept screaming was THIS IS SUPPOSE TO BE A RAPE VICTIM!! WHY DO YOU THINK IT"S OK TO STRIP DOWN NEKKID AND CUDDLE WITH HER?!?! WHY ARE YOU ENCOURAGING HER TO GIVE YOU A HAND JOB!!! SHE"S A FREAKING RAPE VICTIM!!!
But as I said her issues came out in the end and they dealt with it. I'm hoping the next book breaks up this whole formula because if not i may not be able to go on.
