Usually, I would start with a brief retelling of the story. But, while R.J. and Dean have the most page time, they are not the only main characters.

Serve and Protect is an unusual story, in that it is more of an ensemble piece than a traditional romance.

Basically, best friends fall for fraternal twins. None of them are looking for romance, but literally from first sight, they just click. All have to work through some issue to take a chance. And other than a couple of on page kisses, it’s pretty

I’m not sure how I’m managing to do it, but I feel like I’ve been getting the cream of the crop when it comes to newly published first time writers in this genre! With Shelly Connors’ book, Serve and Protect, I’m happy to say that the track record remains unchanged. I absolutely loved this book! It is a whodunit type of book, complete with police detectives, an evilly homophobic mother and tragedy. Happily there is also some romance. If you’re looking for hot sex scenes,

Twins Kolby and Kaleb own a establishment called Here To Serve which is where they meet detectives R.J. and Dean. A employee being beaten in the parking lot and a disgruntled patron lead to them seeing a lot more of the employees.


Okay first off I loved the authors pretense of this story and the characters she created in this book. It was very different for me to read a book where we get two different couples. One being a M/F and another being a M/M which I really did love.


Now this is where I a

Detectives Dean Davis and R.J.Kennedy are partners of two years and altough R.J. didnt want to have a new partner, they are getting along great. I loved their easy banter, the humour and generally who they are. Of course they are described as gorgeous but their inner self matches the outside. They are such caring persons which shows in so many ways….I want to have them in my life.

Kolby and Kaleb are twins who owns the restaurant Here To Serve. That name fits prop

It's wonderful when I find a new, enjoyable author and this one by Shelly Connors delivered just the right amount of enjoyment without it being a cliche. RJ and Dean make a great team of detectives and Dean's falling for Kaleb is well done.

I enjoyed there being a straight couple as well, Kolby and RJ, which made for a well balanced book.

A nice enjoyable read between my angst filled, alpha male regular reading and I will definitely read the second one in this series.

I really enjoyed reading Serve and Protect! I found myself watching the page count, not wanting this book to end. The characters pull you in and don't let go! You want to be a part of the extended family that makes us the characters in Serve and Protect. You will be happy with the romance and the mystery in this book. I can't wait for the next one!

This book was a little different for me. It just wasn't about the two main characters but also all the secondary characters. I loved it!
The slow burn between the twins and the detectives is really refreshing! A lot of dancing, a little mystery, some angst but not to much. Jason's pain and loss hurt my heart. He is such a sweetheart. I do hope that the next book also revolves around the Here To Serve restaurant/bar!
