This is my second book by this author and while I had issues with the first one I did enjoy parts of it enough to try another one. Unfortunately, those issues seemed compounded here to the point where it was a struggle to finish it.

I did like the characterization of the MC’s, Kale and Aleksi were intriguing men with interesting background stories and they did have well written chemistry and sex scenes so that was a plus.

The villain in the first book I read was over the top insane and so was the
3.5 stars maybe?

Kale is an international male supermodel being stalked by a violent fan. Kale's brother/manager Caleb finally talks Kale into hiring a protection agency. Enter Aleksi, a 6'10" sabertoothed tiger shifter with a dislike for "pretty boys". I liked that despite Kale being a successful model, his character is not presented in a campy or over the top way. Kale is not an airhead and Aleksi soon finds that his preconceived ideas about Kale are wrong. Along those same lines Aleksi definit

The Romance Review

Sexy body guard plus saber-tooth shifter. What's not to enjoy in this paranormal romance?

S.A. Welsh is a new-to-me author and my first taste of her is good. Kale Andrews is an international supermodel who is actually a nice guy. When does this happen? Models are usually narcissistic asshats who believe the world revolves around them. When the much in demand model is in high demand and down to earth, it tends to bring out the crazies.

When a fan becomes disturbingly fixated, Kale's brother forces
I had my doubts at the very beginning, thinking ok a male egotystical male that's going to have to take the hard road..

Quickly get past the mask and see into the real person.. And an attraction to a rare cat shifter. Protection is their life basically.. and with all the advantages of their animal I wasn't crazy about this guy, this stalker, getting past them so easily. This guy has money at disposal for getting military grade stuff so why get fixated on an up and coming model? Of course there's

I'm a little stuck on the rating with this one. 2 stars seems a little harsh so I'm going with 3 but I'm being generous. The amount of editing errors was ridiculous. Maybe it skipped that department. And the entire premise of the book, that Kale is being dangerously stalked, was interesting but why did they never find out the guy's name? They called him Not-Barry the whole time. wtf? Even after he was arrested? Weird. The sex was okay but I didn't really buy into their whole relationship. I don' ...more
3.5 stars

I quite enjoyed this story and liked the idea Shifter Protection Specialists. The world is built around humans and paranormals co-existing together. In a way I guess you could consider this under the whole mate/mine insta-attraction category. Aleksi is a bodyguard and Kale needs protecting from a stalker. There is instant attraction, but the whole "mate" thing takes a while. I liked that Aleksi was a saber tooth tiger, I don't think I have read any books with that type of shifters so it

After reluctantly agreeing to have a bodyguard, Kale Andrews must rely on Aleksi to keep him safe when the stalker escalates to murder in this thrilling erotic m/m paranormal romance. I was completely caught up in the story from the beginning and I certainly think that these sexy shifters promise some thrilling and passionate adventures ahead so I am looking forward to reading the next one.

Reviewed for Prism Book alliance

I am not entirely sure what drew me toward Purrfect Protector. However, after reading the blurb, it wouldn't leave me alone. I hesitated to pick it up for a long time because my last experience with the author's work was not positive. In all honesty, I have had a number of less than stellar encounters with the publisher's work as a whole recently. However, the book just kept cropping up and telling me I needed to read it.

I really enjoyed this book. Kale a snobby model is being stalked. He's in need of bodyguard service and enters Aleksi. I enjoyed seeing their relationship develop. This book had all the elements I love about m/m and shifters.

When his brother drags him into Shifter Protection Specialists Inc. because he has been getting rather increasingly threatening mail from a stalker, Kale is resistant. He doesn’t want a bodyguard. But he takes one look at Aleski, the man being assigned to him, and changes his mind. A little shallow, yes, but that man would made a saint drool. When the danger around him escalates, Kale begins to see that a choice made by what’s in his pants, might be the only thing keeping his head on his neck, b ...more

Caleb is a hard character to get to know. We only are given a glimpse in to the history of Caleb and Kale. However, right away you know that Caleb is the protector. Kale knows that he is in danger, but is resistant to having a protection duty placed on him. Then, in walks Aleksi... Because of Aleksi's extra abilities, he can instantly smell the desire that Kale embodies.

I really liked this story. It was full of mystery, twists and turns and kept me on my toes. Kale and Aleksi - Whew! HO
Original Blog Post: eARC Review: Purrfect Protector (Shifter Protection Specialists Inc. #1) by S.A. Welsh

Don't shoot me, but I really found this a cute little story even if the subject matter is one humongous sabre toothed tiger and a male model who was larger than life. Oh, and there was the stalker who just would not give up.

So Kale Andrews receives not just a disturbing mail from a stalkerish fan, he receives an eye in a box. His brother, who also is his boss and agent, takes the mail as it

Pretty is as pretty does or is it? In SA Welsh’s Purrfect Protectorwill Aleksi be able to look past Kale’s profession to see the man behind the pretty face? Can Kale learn to trust Aleksi to protect not only his body but his heart as well? Kale maybe a top male model but he knows it is fleeting and he intends to milk his popularity while he can. He will not allow some sick fan to control his actions or cause him to live in fear. But for his brother’s peace of mind he will hire protection. Aleks ...more

Kale has a stalker, who starts out slow and builds up to truly creepy and dangerous. When he gets sent an animal eyeball, his brother/manager finally calls in the big guns for protection. They go to Shifter Protection Specialists, Inc. There Kale meets Aleski. Aleski is a huge man, but then he has to be since he is a saber-tooth tiger.

I loved Aleski right from the start. How cool to have a saber-tooth tiger shifter. At first, I was not really drawn to Kale as he had the cool diva act down pat. B

Well, this was a tad bit disappointing... but not a bad read! Aleksi and Kale, a big bad cat and a stunning model are brought together in a fairly predictable manner... and the story that ensues is more entertaining at some points than others... but overall the story worked for me, but I found the preview for the next book in this series to be much more promising... so I am sure that I will be watching for it to be released!!!

3.01 stars. Only because after all the huffin' and puffin' I don't get to find out what happens to the friggin' psycho crazed stalker and I didn't get to friggin find out his name... wtf "the not-berry" guy was called that throughout the rest of the book. Lame, but I got my daily dose of hot sexy shifter guy that was 6feet 10 inches tall with a big huge @%&*# and nice muscles! shallow? nah!

Great shifter story! Will definitely read the next one. The action kept the book interesting and the "mine" kept it sweet. Instalove played a part here, but I'm not mad at it - a possessive saber-toothed tiger is a hot saber-toothed tiger.

I would have gone with 4 stars but for the editing problems.

I really enjoyed this one, its my first Sabre-Tooth Tiger shifter story. Its funny, sexy, fluffy and easy to read. I can easily see myself rereading this one in the future if I am in the mood for some light hearted and angst free fun.

The bad guy was slightly blah blah blah and unbelievable but the action was okay and I could just unplug and enjoy reading.

I may change my rating to a 3 star later, but I'm on the fence and leaning towards a 2. I don't how I feel exactly. Didn't hate it and a 2 star from me definitely doesn't mean it was bad cause I'll be reading the next ones. More like I just won't ever be rereading this one.

The story is pretty straight forward model needs a bodyguard. Model and bodyguard fall for each other instantly ie are mates. I like straight forward. What I don't like is when people randomly show up very conveniently and ad

Every once in a while, (ok, more than once in a while) I love to sink my claws into a sexy-shifter-finding-forever-mates type of book. BUT, only when it's done well. The characters have to be interesting and not just sex sex sex all the time. I also really dug the bodyguard aspect of this book. I've read a few stories where the stoic, usually immensely physically intimidating bodyguard gets stuck with a pretty and outwardly vapid seeming charge. They discover, not only do appearances not tell th ...more
