This is only the third book I have read by this author, and I have to say, I have become a fan forever. This second, stand alone, book in the ACES series, belongs to Chance Evans and Jane Singleton. Chance is part of the new ACES group, now stationed in Abu Dhabi. Jane, is a nanny to a sweet boy whose parents are wealthy, only interested in their popularity and will do anything to attract attention of the media and paparazzi. On their way to Abu Dhabi they get abducted and ACES is hired to rescue them. During this rescue, Chance meets Jane , whom he aptly names Mary Poppins/MP. She will do anything to protect her charge, Teddy. Even if it means risking her life. That alone, impresses Chance. Circumstances brings them together and a relationship develops. But all is not smooth sailing as some characters have ulterior motives, bad guys abound, and the damsel in distress is a strong woman whose values and care will impress us all. The plot is engaging from the start as you will fall in love with the main characters. Aside from the plot, it’s also a story about family dynamics, how we perceive ourselves and how the actions and words of parents do in fact affect the individual even when they are adults. I am looking forward to the next book in ACES. I was entrusted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Cristin Harber has done it again. Another great book that I didn't want to put down. The Protector could apply to either of the main characters, which is great. Chance “Midas” is the Aces team member that rescues Jane, whom he dubs “Mary Poppins”, after Jane's employers decided that Syria was a great place to have a so-called family trip. The only reason that Jane stays at her job is for Teddy, the little boy that is her charge. She takes it upon herself to give him a sense of normalcy and love, because his parents sure don't. After life resumes as best it can, they're brought together again. Jane's employers however are just as crazy as they were before, and it only gets worse. There were times that I wondered about their mental state, and it was definitely more than once. Twists and turns abound, and just when you think things might be ok, nope! All aboard the train to Crazy Town. Of course, everything works out the way that it should in the end. Little glimpses and cameos of Team Titan here and there made me giggle. I just love stuff like that.

Wow, What An Awesome Story! A captivating little boy, a devoted nanny, and dangerously insane parents set the stage for the entrance of a modern day warrior, and boy does Chance Evans fit that role to a tee! I loved every emotionally thrilling second of The Protector and I can't wait to read more of the ACES book series.
