choice but to return to America Jacob Ryder is the man charged with protecting him from his family s many enemies but who will protect Ryder from Luca This is the slowest slow burn to ever slow Or burn.Is it perfect Hell no It s long AF Some of it is repetitive There s some stuff that prolly didn t need to be in there because it doesn t advance the story.But it would be a big, fat, honkin lie if I said I didn t get consumed by this story staying up too late, getting up too early, neglecting my jungle of a yard that is literally crying for a mowing, but I just could not stop reading this.Granted, I was somewhat disappointed by the conclusio This is the slowest slow burn to ever slow Or burn.Is it perfect Hell no It s long AF Some of it is repetitive There s some stuff that prolly didn t need to be in there because it doesn t advance the story.But it would be a big, fat, honkin lie if I said I didn t get consumed by this story staying up too late, getting up too early, neglecting my jungle of a yard that is literally crying for a mowing, but I just could not stop reading this.Granted, I was somewhat disappointed by the conclusion of the suspense storyline As a reader I like to have a viable shot at figuring out who the bad guy is that doesn t really happen However, I was really caught up in the action adventure of it all, so there is that.Luca and Ryder and their dynamic are what makes this story so addictive, though I think CK s greatest authorial gift is characterization Both of these men are fully realized And they got under my skin.Luca s a complex character He struggles with anxiety and has historically self medicated with sex His need for control coupled with his ruthlessness has gotten him expelled from three different boarding schools in Europe Thus, he has to return to the states and since he s alienated members of his close protection team with his behaviors his mother appoints ex Army soldier Jacob Ryder to head his team.A boy scout to a fault, Ryder is so consumed by other s perception of him so much so that he oftentimes finds himself settling for less He s a classic people pleaser and protector which makes him pretty square while also appealing He s also submissive insert big RAWR here The chemistry between them once it happens is ridiculously hot There is a YUGE size difference between them Ryder is big and brawny with a massive cock who wants nothingthan to please his partner with it It s no problem for him to pick Luca up and Luca is super bendy so happy sigh yeah Luca being intelligent and perceptive picks up on Ryder s kink quickly and they start playing with power exchange, biting, light humiliation, rough sex and some bondage That bondage scene y all I m pretty sure it s at least partially responsible for global warming Also, EPIC RIMMING If you re familiar with this Twitter hashtag FineMenThatEatAss Ryder would break the interwebs if he posted his pic which would then ripple out and result in him being made Commander in Chief of all the fine men eating ass for all time It s no contest This is the best rimming I ve ever had the pleasure of reading.Things that will prolly be auto noes for people 1 Both MCs have sex with other people No cheating occurs, but they do the Hibbity Jibbity with others before they get together.2 Luca is 18 and still in high school and Ryder is 28.Trigger warning for recreational drug usage and attempted rape.Lastly, I have to mention how much I really RULLY liked Luca s mother I know, I know she s an ice queen and most of the decisions she makes regarding Luca and his care are presumptuous and sanctimonious but she s a fucking BAMF Fuck with what s hers and she will fuck you right, clean up and not even break a sweat By the end of this thing it was a toss up who I had a bigger crush on Ryder or Evelyn.So, this epic saga is a commitment, certainly will not be for everyone but I don t think I ve ever been this connected to a CK narrative I even got choked up a couple times DAFUQ For that reason alone, I can t rate it less than 5 stars And now I m off to read the ficlets Because obsessed They were connected in every way two human beings could be connected, in ways that went far beyond the physical 4,5 starsThis story played with my head A LOT It s very hard for me to rate and review this book It had such great parts and I really didn t expect it to surprise me so much But in the same time I had a hard time accepting the MC s habits and choices.Ryder new head of Luca s bodyguard team Tough and introverted.Luca only 18 but he already had so many experiences to last him a lifetime Promiscuous to say the least This book has almost 900 pages When I started reading it, I thought it 4,5 starsThis story played with my head A LOT It s very hard for me to rate and review this book It had such great parts and I really didn t expect it to surprise me so much But in the same time I had a hard time accepting the MC s habits and choices.Ryder new head of Luca s bodyguard team Tough and introverted.Luca only 18 but he already had so many experiences to last him a lifetime Promiscuous to say the least This book has almost 900 pages When I started reading it, I thought it ll take me some time to finish it Well I really didn t expect this story to keep me up all night and call in sick the next day just to finish it I read it in 24 hours and this happened to me only withIn the Company of Shadowsby Santino Hassell and Ais.I must admit this story was VERY INTENSE and REALLY HOT But I struggled a lot with the fact that both MCs had A LOT of sex with others, forthan half of the book I loved the suspense and the fighting and shooting didn t get me bored But after all the things these two suffered I wish we d get to see them togetherYes, the sex was intense, but I really wish they d get their HEA Overall I think it was a great WIP book and this author really got me to hold my breath many times Awesome writing style But I can t give it 5 FULL stars because somehow I wantedat the end Small power bottom manhandling a big hunky guy at his taste Hot sex Plenty of smexy times What s not to like The book is very long, but it doesn t feel that way Imagine, 890 pages I had to charge my kindle because the battery didn t last not that I always remember to charge it, anyway My mother words You read this book and it never ends but you can t stop reading, and when you are not reading it, you think about reading it I think that thought is compatible with my own.If I judge the Small power bottom manhandling a big hunky guy at his taste Hot sex Plenty of smexy times What s not to like The book is very long, but it doesn t feel that way Imagine, 890 pages I had to charge my kindle because the battery didn t last not that I always remember to charge it, anyway My mother words You read this book and it never ends but you can t stop reading, and when you are not reading it, you think about reading it I think that thought is compatible with my own.If I judge the book with a minimum of objectivity I have to admit it sounds like sci fi if not like soap opera I criticized in Play Me, I m Yours, YA, that one of the MCs was into BDSM before beginning the relationship with the other MC But in that book it felt like an eyesore it wasn t meant to be there Here Luca has been controlling men around since he s 16 and he has slept withpeople than he can count But his personality matched up his actions His confident presence was displayed in cocky and nonchalant provocations and shameless manipulations He exploits his looks, charm and charisma to play with people s desires, in a praying mantis sort of way He has such a remarkable personality I never doubted of his power to handling men like puppets He was the whole time taking the lead and he has everybody wrapped around his little finger.That s why his mother only hires female bodyguards or ugly males except for Ryder, what was she thinking Ryder is a righteous and honorable person and professional to the bitter end, so he doesn t bend to Luca s insistence, which doesn t mean it s a piece of cake to reject Luca s insinuations An ex soldier himself, he is strict and assertive, and his principal looks for new ways in his repertoire to push all his buttons, trying to shatter his impassive attitude.Which was fun as fuck.Don t get it wrong It s a tar baby, of course But this story was also oh so very sweet I didn t expect it Yes, my mother kept telling me I had to read the book because they were so cute and she knows I can t resist cute characters It s my weakness And when the sweetness is in a mature sort of book meaning, not YA , I just gotcurious.Luca has just been expelled from his third boarding school in Switzerland due to improper behavior and you can guess which kind of No other school accepts him so he is forced to come back home in the States, which is dangerous as hell, as menaces arereal than in Europe That s when Ryder becomes the leader of the bodyguard team and has to prevent those menaces from coming true If that wasn t enough, the shit hits the fan when Luca begins receiving letters and presents with connections to his past from a person who calls himself the Admirer , and his modus operandi suggests he s serious about his intentions and that he is supported by a mole in the house.The mystery doesn t call my attention as much as the love story Luca has never been exclusive, and he demonstrates it Ryder tries to distance himself from Luca but at the same time he can t help himself from sharing his opinions about Luca s definition of a hobby Jealousy and possessiveness take place in a normal basis, from both sides When one of them wants, the other one gives his back When the roles are reversed, it happens equally This dance sounds frustrating and childish but it s not There are issues Luca and Ryder have to sort out, inside their heads and in the core of their relationship Ryder can t think about being the boyfriend of a 18 year old, whereas Luca doesn t think he can control his need to control and sacrifice an important part of himself At first you believe there is no way for them to find a common path, to reconcile their desires and feelings But the advantage of having a book so long is that there is enough time and space for the characters to evolve and change coming to terms with their consciences and natures Did I mention the sex is hot There are power exchanges, too Just saying.Don t let the length of the book discourage you It s worth it.You re the Only One I Want It s very tough to rate this It s looooong 250,000 words 50 sizeable chapters Because it s been posted as an ongoing series it s unwieldy and could do with a hell of a lot of tightening The

someone won a purple heart sorry about that Thank you, Ayanna U.N.P.U.T.D.O.W.N.A.B.L.E I have only one complaint about this book it was over far too soon I virtually can see your incredulous looks right now, because I know exactly what you think how can a book with 890 pages be over too soon Lol But this is my own goddamn fault, because I might have set a new personal record with this one I have read Close Protection within four days and considering my limited reading time, this is saying something Well, I have to admit that I have read a U.N.P.U.T.D.O.W.N.A.B.L.E I have only one complaint about this book it was over far too soon I virtually can see your incredulous looks right now, because I know exactly what you think how can a book with 890 pages be over too soon Lol But this is my own goddamn fault, because I might have set a new personal record with this one I have read Close Protection within four days and considering my limited reading time, this is saying something Well, I have to admit that I have read a few pages on a QT at the office yesterday and no, not at lunch break cough so please don t tell my boss, okay The mc s were absolutely adorable Both being traumatized from events in their past, I just wanted to hug themoften than not.Ryder, the bodyguard Tall, broad shouldered, heavily muscled, but having brains was once again exactly my type He could be my close protection detail any time, but after reading this story I m so glad I don t need one I can t imagine how it must be being imprisoned in your own life You can t leave your house, can t do anything impulsively without heavy planning and without a mob of bodyguards But that is the life of Luca, son of a billionaire, who has to live with the constant threat of being abducted or worse.Luca I had my qualms before I started to read Close Protection because he is so young and normally I like my characters being a bit older, but I didn t have to worry His personality has so many layers, it was really fascinating to see them unfold one by one But all in all he is vulnerable and strong at the same time and I really loved it The whodunnit was absolutely thrilling There were enough twists and turns to make me dizzy and when I thought I have figured it out, I was proven wrong in a heartbeat But I had a general idea who was involved and I did a happy dance when I found out that I was right, even if the motive was vague until the end.As to the sex scenes One word HOT I m not a fan of an open relationship and technically, this was not the case here, because it took a while before there even was a relationship, but you should know that there are sex scenes with other partners beforehand which were equally hot.I can t recommend this book high enough, but I hope you belong to the lucky ones who have already downloaded this freebie, because the author removed all her free stories from the internet a few weeks ago They might get published one day, but I guess this will take some time 4.5 stars I enjoyed the hell out of this story and Ryder Luca Yes, I did Luca D Amato, though barely 18, is hardly innocent He s very sexually experienced and well versed at how to get what he wants and he pretty much lets no one stand in his way He first came off asthan a little spoiled and bratty and it s easy to see why He s spent the last 6 years in European boarding schools with very little actual discipline and parental supervision And after three expulsions for sexual 4.5 stars I enjoyed the hell out of this story and Ryder Luca Yes, I did Luca D Amato, though barely 18, is hardly innocent He s very sexually experienced and well versed at how to get what he wants and he pretty much lets no one stand in his way He first came off asthan a little spoiled and bratty and it s easy to see why He s spent the last 6 years in European boarding schools with very little actual discipline and parental supervision And after three expulsions for sexual misconduct, you might think it s past time to rein him in and you would be right.Jacob Ryder is 10 years older than Luca and has been assigned as his head of security, upon Luca s return to the United States And if Luca has a type Ryder is it Ryder, though very much attracted to the beautiful and young Luca, is determined to not sleep with him He thinks it could compromise his ability to protect Luca and also would be seen as Ryder taking advantage of his charge But, Ryder never stood a chance Close Protection had some grittiness to it, which I pretty much always love Our guys do make it through the threat at hand, but man do they both suffer along the way I loved the UST and I really loved their dynamic once Ryder finally gave in Luca is not the slightest bit submissive He gets off on control and he discovers, with Ryder, just how amazing sex can be when paired with the right partner Ryder has also longed to be able to just let go but never was really able to get that with anyone else They were deliciously dirty and I loved that Truly.I do have to say, though, that the whole suspense plot seemed way over the top, especially considering what supposedly triggered it and the complexity and the layers upon layers it contained I don t really want to saythan that, and give away key pieces, but it did strain credulityor at least mine But I don t really read romantic suspense for the realism, so I will easily forgive that It was a fast paced story and clocking in at nearly 900 pages, I didn t think it felt too long, at all Once I started reading, I was hard pressed to put it down, even just to sleep That s when I know I m enjoying a story.The one thing I really wantedfrom, was the ending It seemed a bit too tenuous I would expect an HFN type ending, considering Luca s age, so that was fine, but the ending was a touch abrupt, and though Ryder and Luca are definitely a couple at the end, I wanted just a littleview spoiler Their relationship is still under wraps and I would have preferred that even if they have to keep things on the down low in Ryder s professional world, that at least the people most important would have been let in on their happiness Ryder won t tell his parents and I found that to bethan a little disappointing, considering how close he is with his family hide spoiler 4.5I ll do anything to make you happy, Luca Anything That s a dangerous promise to
