Now this book to me had a slight different vibe and feel to it than book 1 but only very slightly. I’m certain that is only because of following along closely to Rizzo and Sharky and Duncan takes a bit of a back seat until much further on into the book.

Now I cannot review this book without being honest. I had some niggly areas; firstly Samantha has this knack of being rather particular. Sometimes I don’t need particular and that area can detract from the natural flow of text. A lot of our Englis

Now if you read my previous review 'The Duncan Peter Files' you would know I really liked this book... like loved this book! Duncan & Rubin were fabulous and the story was unique and different that is why I'm finding it hard to say this BUT I enjoyed 'The Rizzo Protocol' probably more than I like 'The Duncan Peter Files'. This is your normal boy meets girls, something pulls them apart and a little down the line they are thrown back together again, but what happens is what made it different.

Review by Simone

Well, what can I say, the ever talented Samantha Fontien has done it again.

This book - her third - incorporates characters, scenes, situations and scenarios from her first two novels, yet it moves another character into the spotlight - Rizzo - to tell the next phase of their lives, all from her perspective.

Rizzo is a strong willed, intelligent young woman who knows what she wants and knows how to get it.

She has grown and matured from the young tomboy we firs

We meet Karen “Rizzo” Simpson in the first of the Dragonflies books, but we get to really know her and what makes her tick in this second book of the trilogy, The Rizzo Protocol. I highly recommend that you read Book One, Dragonflies – The Duncan Peters Story before reading this.

Rizzo is a spitfire. She’s unbelievably smart and cunning, and does not suffer fools gladly. She is often the smartest person in the room and is not afraid of showing that. She also has a mouth like a sailor, an ability

I am fan of the Duncan and Rubin from The Duncan Peters Files… but I am absolutely woman crushing on Rizzo from The Rizzo Protocol and Fergal… OMG! We are first introduced to Rizzo’s character in the Duncan Peters Files – book one of the Dragonflies series. She was a young computer hacker that Duncan and Rubin took in. Through the years she became family to them and worked right alongside them at their security company. She’s the kind of woman that tells it like it is, but she isn’t all the bada ...more

I just finished Dragonflies - The Rizzo Protocal and I loved it. This is intended for the Dragonflies series which could be read as a standalone, however reading The Duncan Peters files will get you up to speed with all the characters. As you know Rizzo is Duncans right hand man...or girl (lol), he is finally back with Simone and wants to spend time with her leaving Rizzo in charge. To say that she is ecstatic is the understatement of the world. But she will do anything for him so she does it. W ...more

5 stars!

I loved this book. It was hot, angsty, sweet, and fun! I love Rizzo, I love her strong fiesty attitude but her soft interior. So happy this wasn't as heartbreaking as the first and a little lighter. I did get scared for a minute there. This story primarily revolved around Rizzo, her job, love life (or lack there of) and her relationship with Duncan. Duncan still was a big part of the book and we still got to see glimpses of him and his future which made me

Once again, Miss Fontien's writing style amazes me.
This book is full of amazing characters that pull at your heart strings and have you cheering for them the entire time.
I loved the relationships of the characters and how everything really intertwined.
The Rizzo Protocol is by far my favorite book by this unique and amazing author.
I love everything about Rizzo. Her sass, her fire, the fierceness in which she loves and protects those closest to her.
But mostly I love the way she looks at life

I loved Rizzo in the first books she was such a gobby feisty character so I could not wait to get my hands on her book to see how much her character had changed.

Typical Rizzo nerve loses her feisty sassiness and we see just how far she is willing to go to play a little tit for tat.

Duncan is back lol, that’s right we get to read all the goings on in Duncan life if you loved from the first book then you should defo read this book.

I adored the first books in the series. It really did set the right

Okay I just finished the 2nd book in the Dragonflies Trilogy ! And, I love the ending of the book it is so worth reading. I knew that Duncan was trying to get Rizzo (AKA Kazza by her mother) & Fergel (AKA Sparky) together, but what a roller coaster ride it was and I feel I may have a set of blue balls (well whatever it is called for a woman). Dragonflies - The Rizzo Protocol is HOT, Steamy, Romantic, Fiery and sometimes sappy. Samantha Fontien you had my stomach in knots with this book again!

Samantha does not disappoint in creating a story that captures your attention and does not let you go. This series is amazing and this installment did not disappoint. We run into many characters we have seen before and they were enjoyable and loved them. Rizzo was my favorite. She is so strong and feisty. Everything I love and adore in a character. The story of course in true Samantha fashion we have many highs and lows. Twists and turns and a cluster of differen't emotions running through us fr ...more

Unfortunately I was not able to read Duncan's story so I had some gaps but that did not in any way take away from the book. Samantha has this ability to tell a story with such detail but not too much to make it feel like filler words.
The Rizzo Project tells the story of fiesty Rizzo. She is not the loving type but she sure love a good all nighter full of sexual satisfaction.
Duncan leaves Rizzo in charge of the company and she is not happy about the Mr. Nichols situation. Will Rizzo be successf

I was given a copy of this book for a honest review. Dragonflies- The Rizzo Protocol is the second in the trilogy picks up were the fist book left off. Rizzo was introduced in the first book when Duncan and Rubin discovered she was the one behind the problems an old SAS buddy was having. Rizzo is a computer genius and with the help and tutelage of Duncan she is now an executive. This is her story as she tries to help out Duncan. She steps up to run the company while Duncan tries to get his perso ...more

The Rizzo Protocol is book 2 of the Dragonflies Series. Once again, the character of Duncan Peters is integral to the story but the main focus of this book is Karen Simpson, aka “Rizzo”. Rizzo is thrust into take Duncan’s place at Blackcard. She must actually act like an adult; especially when it comes to NOT sleeping with the employees. Duncan orders that Rizzo must have a driver/security with her at all times to which Fergal or “Sharky” is assigned. Rizzo and Sharky have a history; we follow t ...more
The Book Fairy Reviews
Starting off right where The Duncan Peters Files leaves off you get to know Rizzo in more depth. As with her previous book Samantha goes into detail with her characters painting a picture that is so beautiful you can't help but be drawn into the story. I specially like the fact that we get more of Duncan and Simone so I would continue to get my Duncan fix as I became closer to Rizzo and Mr. Nichlos.

Part 2 of the Dragonflies Trilogy brings us The Rizzo Protocol. Once again, Samantha Fontien has put me on an emotional rollercoaster and made me ride it for a while. It was great to get to know Rizzo, that we first met in part one, The Duncan Peters Files. I see a lot of me in Rizzo. See it and say it like it is, kind of gal. This book has some majorly hot sex scenes, so definitely not for those under 18!! Women of my age will fully enjoy them though. This story, just as part one, is a very wel ...more

Well Ms Fontien has done it again, an excellent book with strong characters. We first met Rizzo in her first book of the Dragonflies series The Duncan Peters files. The Rizzo Protocol tells the story of Rizzo aka Karen Simpson. She is a strong woman who takes no prisoners when it come to her men.
Samantha tells a good story, with just a twist to keep you hanging and to make you want to read more. I loved this book it had all of Ms Fontiens usual characteristics of telling a good story I give this

What a great second book of this trilogy. I loved Rizzo a spunky fiery characeter who gives as good as she gets. I like the Star Wars references in the book a nice fun addition. Plenty of hot scenes and the story just flowed really well. After reading Duncan's story this was a refershing change to read a female pov story but. The romance is off the scale great i could not get enough, and i love it when more than one person wants the female lead.

Dragonflies-The Rizzo Protocol is book two in the series and after book one this was needed.
Rizzo's story redeemed the author for me after my love/hate relationship with book one.
Rizzo is a feisty chick, I absolutely loved her story. While Duncan is still around, he's handed over control to Rizzo, whether she wanted it or not!
We get more of Duncan and Simone's story as well. The Rizzo Protocol has me excited about the third book.

I wasn't sure how I was going to like this book. But it did not disappoint!! Rizzo is a alpha female LOL! She takes no shit and makes sure you know where you stand or don't with her. I can't say that I like parts of this book because I was too busy bawling!!! Samantha does an impeccable job at making me want to throw my kindle on the floor! Sassy, sexy, smart assy, Rizzo is my kind of gal!
