Under His Protection is Book 9 in Katie Reus’ Red Stone Security Series. I cannot say enough good things about this book series. I know I am a total fan girl of Ms. Reus’ writing, especially her romantic suspense. Under His Protection is the story of Ivan Mitchell and Julieta Mederos. Julieta first meets Ivan when he comes into her lingerie shop with someone he is protecting. He is a new employee at Red Stone but not new to security. Julieta and Ivan come into contact with each other in the next few months. While Ivan steals looks at Julieta – she thinks that he doesn’t like her. Julieta has been warned that Ivan is a “player” and at first she is hesitant to trust him. Ivan discovers that Julieta has a stalker and uses this opportunity to “help” her and also to acknowledge his feelings for her. The suspense is this book was well written. While you may be able to guess who the stalker is there a few paths you could go down to come to the conclusion. The characters are well-developed and there are some cameo appearances from a few characters in previous Red Stone books. There is heat and chemistry between Julieta and Ivan and some pretty hot goings on but that does not take away from the book and it is not the focus of the book – it enhances the way the relationship between Ivan and Julieta develops. There is enough suspense and heat in the book to satisfy both types of listeners. Sophie Eastlake does a great job with the audio character development. She manages to convey the emotions that the characters are feeling. There were no noticeable pauses or grammatical errors in the recording. I listened to this audio book on a solitary road trip, through the car’s blue tooth, and it kept me engaged during the tedium of driving.

This was a simpler story about Red Stone Security but it was a really good story about Ivan and Julieta. They were the perfect couple and, again, the hero just wanted to protect the woman he loved. Julieta’s stalker was seriously deranged and some of his texts to her were so sick and disgusting that you really loved to hate him.
There was some great sexual tension and some nicely written sexcapades near the end of the book. One of the reasons I like reading Ms. Reus’s book is because she writes such exciting stories and wonderful sexual tension throughout her books. She doesn’t just drop a sex scene in somewhere and call it good. There’s sexual attraction from the time they meet until the end of the book.
There was some swearing and the F-bomb was used 34 times. To me the F-bomb was always necessary just where it was used but I know a lot of you don’t mind reading about some guys head buried between some chick’s legs but you don’t want to hear ANY kind of swearing. Go figure. Anyway, you’ve been warned.
As to the narration: I just love Sophie Eastlake's narration. The men sound sexy and her emotions are terrific. Every book she narrates is better than the last.
