Review: Protecting Melody by Susan Stoker


Tex gave everything he had to his country and his SEAL teammates. When an IED took away part of his leg, and his career, he devoted himself to his country and friends from behind his computer. He’s always been the man that can find anyone, that uses his computer skills, legal and illegal, to keep people safe and to put the bad guys behind bars. 

But behind a computer is a lonely place to be. While he might put on a good front, Tex can’t help but feel he’s missing out when he sees how happy his friends are. But when the woman he’s been talking to online for the last six months suddenly disappears without a word, Tex knows it’s time to step up, and use his skills for himself this time. 

**Protecting Melody is the 7th book in the SEAL of Protection Series. It can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s recommended you read the books in order to get maximum enjoyment out of the series.


I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. 

Side note: If you're curious about the format of this review, all will be revealed when you read the book.


Protecting Melody has been my #mostanticipatedbook since Protecting Fiona. In all of the previous Protecting books, Tex has made an appearance. And every time I would see his name, I would get #superanxious to know his story. Well, now #mydreamshavecometrue.


Tex is a retired Navy SEAL who lost part of his leg on a mission when a bomb went off. He still helps out the team a lot with his #computerninjaskills. If someone is missing, #Texwillfindthem. Truthfully, the team would be lost without Tex. #Texisthebomb #Tex4ever 

Even though he is the #perfectmalespecimen, Tex has some hang ups about his prosthetic. His past encounters with women have left him insecure and embarrassed about his scarred amputation site. Let's just say their reactions weren't nice. It #brokemyheart to see him struggle with it.


Thank goodness Melody doesn't feel the same way. #sexonastick #neverlookatboxersthesamewayagain #sixpackunderthatshirt 

Jesus, Tex, I know you're nervous as hell and you really, really don't want to share this with me, but you are sex on a fucking stick. Seriously.


 And when the 2 of them finally #getdowntobidness....



 The #sweetest part of the story was #Baby.


  Sorry. I couldn't help myself.

Baby is Melody's #sweet, #loyal, #protective, and #incrediblysmart coonhound. I loved her interaction with Tex.

I was a little worried that Tex's story wouldn't live up to #myexpectations but I #shouldhaveknownbetter than to doubt the #ninjawritingskills of Susan Stoker. You don't have to read this book in series order, but really #whywouldntyouwantto

I have but one complaint.... I need to know who Tex's #favoritedisneycharacter is! Why must you torture us like this, Susan?
