This is the third book in the Sizzling Miami series about a self-made family of ex-prisoners with hard exteriors but softer on the inside! This is Saul and Javier story which to my surprise also introduced Kyle to the mix.

For the past seven years Saul and Javier have been together through a horrific and disturbing past and are now going through a period of recovery. Although they both have an unconditional depth of love for each other,

This was a 4.5 star for me but rounded up here.

Seems like we have been waiting forever for this latest installment to the Sizzling Miami series, The Protector, by Jessie G. It hasn’t really been that long but when you are invested in the characters, it’s hard to wait. However, the wait is over, and Holy Hell, it was so worth it. This author has a way of taking damaged, broken men, and giving them something to cling to, something to hope for, and ultimately, the chance of love.

They're getting even better

Others still the odd grammatical mix up but plot wise, this series is just getting better and better and this one had a cracking good story well executed.

It's not easy to write a good menage and get the balance right so it feels equal. It's harder still to introduce a third into an established pairing. Jessie G does that with some deft handling though in this fast paced action story.

Each of the three men bring their own hopes and desires into the relationship but it ta

This author certainly knows how to write a story about broken and damaged characters. She's got a great knack of portraying her characters as real.

Saul and Javier are the main characters. They've been together for seven years. Both are struggling with their past. It's only when things start moving forward for these two that they meet Kyle, a porn star.

Although this read is angsty I was gripped to it & ended up reading it in a day. I love how we got to read about characters we met previousl
Another wonderful book from Jessie G. There was angst, passion, pain and insecurities. I loves the family that these men created, the trust they had between them and the way they showed Saul what he meant to them. This is a story of three men who came together at the right time, and fed the parts of themselves that were starving for too long.

Saul and Javier have been through so much, they are almost as one. But due to this deep bond they share, it overshadows the issues they don't want to ackno
Original Blog Post: eARC Review & #Giveaway: The Protector (Sizzling Miami #3) by Jessie G

This begins with a blast from the past and it is a truly painful scene but it does set the stage three men step into. A journey they never expected to survive or ri find love at the end of the tunnel.

Wow, sounds mushy doesn't it? But seriously, if not for the violence, the sexual abuse Javier endured and survived, the killer path Saul gracefully dons and shrugs off as just the normal course of life, the

3.5 out of 5

I had to think about this rating for awhile. This book worked great with the previous two in relation to the main story. I loved seen the other characters and what was happening at the moment.

Unfortunately, the main love story was a disappointment. I wanted more between Saul & Javi. They were great before and deserved their HEA. Kyle was a likeable character, but didn't add much to the relationship.

The whole Triad didn't worked for me. They needed a more defined relationship an

Love the series and the guys...I have to say I was a little confused about some of them 2/3 of the way when it was reaching the conclusion...the back and forth between all of them was a tad confusing...I've read all the books but I was still a bit confused. Be that as it may, I still loved it and would have liked to have seen more page time with just Saul, Javier and Kyle because I just loved the chemistry...they fit! I'm looking forward to more books in this series!

The protector (sizzling Miami # 3) by Jesse G

Master Saul Alvarez is known for teaching submissive guys the art of the whip. He has a compassionate manner as a master and he is the most sought after professional in the BDSM world. Javier Escardo has been praying for death but was completely shocked with the cold killer that responded. Now seven years later he is quite determined to take what is his which happens to be Saul's heart which is no eas

Jessie G. brings badassery back with the third installment in her Sizzling Miami series. Featuring the unlikely family of ex-cons with unexpected soft sides, I was thrilled to see characters from both books 1 and 2 return to support Saul, Javier and Kyle on their journey.

Saul and Javier have been together for seven years, if you want the easy answer. Despite the unconditional love they have for each-other, their damaged past continues to haunt them, and neither man is able to fully meet the othe

I love all of Jessie G's books. I knew Saul and Javi's story was going to be unique, and it did not disappoint.

Saul and Javi "coming" together finally was beautiful and sweet. When they add Kip/ Kyle to the mix, Javi's tenderness, and Saul's need to dominate, intensify. Kyle completed them by making them confront their demons, especially Saul, and recognizing Javi's strength. I hella liked Saul as a Dom and his moments with Kyle were sizzling on a nuclear level.

The writing was good. The story wa

Hmmm... Is it just me or do Clay, Evan and Tory seem familiar? I think there used to be a link on Jessie G's website with their story but it is not there anymore :(

I'm not sure what to think about this story....

I guess my main issue is that I hated that Saul did not believe Javi when he told him he loved him but seemed to have no issue when Kyle told him the same. To me it seemed that neither Saul nor Kyle loved Javi very much...

One of my main issues with threesomes is that one personal always
Lukewarm on this book. I really LOVED parts. But mostly was just ehh. Honestly I REALLY could've done with Javier. I feel bad saying that because I did like, I felt for him. But seriously. Kyle and Saul were so great together, I was really digging them together and they were such a great match. But having everything CONSTANTLY be about Javier and him and his needs (imagined or real) always coming first was annoying. Supporting cast of characters was great. I loved how everything played out with ...more

Love the series

It started out slower than the other books. I love the characters in this series and want to see where the author is going to take them. Saul and Kyle really work together. Javier was kinda disappointing in this book he seem almost child like. In the second book he was more mature. I gave it four stars because of that. It almost seems like Saul is only putting up with Javier. The series makes you think that he is Saul's soul mate then in this book it's like Saul is a father to Jav

I really like Jessie G.'s writing, but this one just didn't do for me what Tricking Chase did. Still worth a read.
I almost DNF this but I did at least manage to skim the last 40%. I felt no connection to the three MCs, and I didn't feel like they had a connection with each other either. Disjointed plot and a number of editing/ typo errors. I know this book had a lot of great ratings but I just can't agree.

I started reading this series because another series by the author caught my eye and this one had to go first. I think I'm going to stop here and maaaybe check out the first one of the other series but I'm pretty sure I know what is waiting for me there by now and while it's not bad it's also nothing that blows my socks off.

The tops are all overprotective, growly and "dominant". I put dominant in quotation marks because while they all talk a good game so far in three books not one of them really

I Loved this book. This was an emotional story to read at times. I admit I cried. Although there is a section that was very confusing for me. It introduces characters that will make much more sense if you read Tricking Chase (Devils Pride MC) book 1 right after book 3. It's a spin off series. So much is explained. I love this author.

Hot damn. You could really see the love and trust building between all three men, and them grappling with their (and each other’s) demons without letting it break them apart. Overall a comforting story, charged with enough electricity to give it just the right kick ;)

OK, I loved the characters, both old and new... but, what I didn't love were the "missing" words! I couldn't keep count of how many times my brain had to go back and re-read a sentence and fill in a missing word... grrr Oh, well... maybe this little flaw will be fixed in the next book! *grin*

I will say that I felt like this book left me wanting more! More details... more 3-way sex... more, just a little bit more. I'm not needy... just greedy! LOL!!!

This series just keeps getting better. The emotions of the characters leap of the pages at you.
The Protector, what a perfect description of Saul. For years he has been protecting Javi, from not only his past but also his future. Being a Master in the BDSM scene for years, he is well known for knowing how to give his subs what they need while giving himself the release he needs. Leaving that lifestyle to protect Javi and himself is something he deals with daily but he doesn't have the p

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars

I found I quite enjoyed G.’s writing and really liked these characters. This is definitely a “lovable bad boy” type story (and probably series), where we see these rough men who love and care for one another, share their feelings, and are total softies under their hard exteriors. It probably skirts the edge of too romanticized, but I found I liked it and it worked perfectly here.

This incredible story is gritty, gripping and triple decker hot. Once again the third book in this epic series is as deep and intense as the books before. Saul, the strongest of all the characters is in constant conflict with himself. Being the unknowing hero, he believes that his faults will bring them all down. Innocent, broken Javier the love of Saul's life, must be protected at all times, at all costs. No exceptions! Enter sweet, unassumi

The book had started with so much promise, but in the end, the triad of Saul, Javier and Kyle just didn't deliver.
The reason why it didn't quite work for me.

With how Saul and Javier were connecting, tentative and fragile because of their shared history, the introduction of a personality such as Kyle's should have bridged them together faster, bonded them tighter.

Saul fighting for Javi and not believing he is worthy of bring loved and trusted. Javi, bent but not completely broken, needing to come to terms with what happened to him and find the strength to be the man he needs to be.

OMG this book was just so heartbreaking. You can feel the pain and love flowing off the pages.

No one should have to go through what all of these men have went through. The relationship between Saul, Javier, and Kyle was epic as Kyle would say. They worked together and knew what each other needed. I was happy that Saul was able to let go and be himself with Kyle and the way that Javier grew with the both of them.

I want more of the badassery. I hope, hope, hope the next story in the series is Chri
