We start by diving straight into this story as new transfer, Saxon, does not have the best of starts with brothers Dallas and Ozzy after they are given a heads up about the paramedic. Saxon and Dallas clash straight away and it does make for an entertaining read. When Saxon proves himself on the job, Dallas is forced to reconsider and it doesn't take long to see each other as they truly are. Attraction quickly sparks and it's really sweet with how they move forward with a possible relatio

It is saying much when a reader anticipates more for an author and cannot wait for the next book to drop. This one came as a lovely present to me because I have been spending little time online and have been a bad girl in reading emails. So, imagine the one email I opened that day and, "Surprise!", another Protect and Serve book for my enjoyment.

Although I ended up loving Dallas and Saxon together, I'll admit it did take me a while to warm up to Dallas. And for a good portion of the book, I didn't think Dallas deserved Saxon. The way he and Ozzy treated Saxon when he first arrived at the firehouse was awful and it had me feeling quite sad actually. I get that they are a family and didn't want to replace Hal, but the biggest issue was that it was Dallas's ex, Toby, who had "warned" him about Saxon. I mean, Dallas didn't even know Toby th ...more

4.5 stars. The biggest issue I had was with Dallas. He knew Toby all of 5 days & that is if they hooked up on day one of the conference. Then Toby ghosts him afterwards and he acts like he lost the love of his life. 6 months later, Toby cals him out of the blue to warn Dallas about Saxon. He is crushed that he wasn't calling for him. Knowing he's a douche, cause of the ghosting, he immediately believes what he sasy about Saxon and doesn't give Saxon a chance. The minute Saxon walks in the door o ...more

Let me start off by saying... LOVE the cover! *grin*

Now, for the not so loved stuff. ;(
My husband is a paramedic and truthfully I could find no fault with the few procedures that were described... so that was all good and yes there were some VERY emotional scenes (one of the things I love most about Ms. Pine's books is her ability to bring me to tears, whether of joy or of sorrow!) but these three books have been OTT cookie-cutter books that had me questioning why in the world I was putting myse

This book is the third installment in the Protect and Serve series, which centers around the brothers in the McCoy family, and the best one so far. This book focuses on Paramedic Dallas Haynes and fellow paramedic Saxon James who is newly transferred to the Gloucester Firehouse where Dallas and his brother Ozzy work. There are passing references to characters and events from the prior books, but it’s not essential that you read them first.

Saxon's Savior, the third book in the Protect and Serve series, is an awesome read. This Pandora Pine book is easily read as a standalone, but the books are all connected and best enjoyed if read in order.

If you enjoy paramedics falling in love, you'll love this co-worker romance. Dallas and Saxon get off of the wrong foot when they become co-workers. But once the pretenses are dropped, and everything is forgiven, they bond over their similar pasts. They make for a fun couple from the start, bu

Saxon won my heart over from the start. He is an amazing guy, which all the McCoy's realize immediately...except Dallas and Ozzy. Dallas and his brother, Ozzy, were complete assholes to Saxon upon meeting him. I found it odd that Ozzy wouldn't have called to inquire about Saxon from the Chief of the other firehouse. To go off the word of a guy who treated Dallas so poorly just didn't make sense. So when Saxon got hurt protecting Dallas, and then the rest of the McCoy clan showed up to help and s ...more

4.5 stars... This is the third book in the series. It stands alone fine but if, like me, you have Series FOMO (you need to know every proceeding detail) then definitely read the first two books prior to this one. If not, you’ll be fine reading this one on its own.

Dallas is the third of five brothers we will be getting stories about. Four are foster brothers brought up by the 5th one’s parents, Mandy and David. Three of the brother (the first three books) are first responders. Dallas is a paramed

4.5 Stars

The firehouse is still feeling the loss of one of their own, which occurred in book one. Because of dragging their feet, they lost out on handpicking his replacement. The one they were receiving had a ‘reputation’ that preceded him. Needless to say, nobody was going to be getting off on the right foot in this situation.

Saxon had an uphill battle from the moment he walked up to his new firehouse, but he was stubborn enough, and good enough, to prove he was the right man for the job. Dall

Saxon's Savior is the third book in the Protect and Serve series and I have to say that this one was my favorite!  It's now Dallas' turn for his very own HEA but it doesn't come easy and to top it off, it's been a while since one of his own was taken from the Gloucester Firehouse 3, losing a near and dear fellow medic has weighed heavily on the firehouse family and it's no surprise (well actually it is) when Ozzy's procrastination on finding a replacement, has been

Saxon and Dallas make my heart happy. But it took a bit to get there. This is the third book in the Protect and Serve series and is not a standalone - as previous characters play prominent rolls in this book. I would definitely categorize this one as an enemy to lovers story.

I've loved these men from the word go. This is a great series from this author though I feel it's getting a little too focused on the action and how to make each rescue more dramatic rather than remembering the root of the individuals. The McCoy family remains effing amazingly fantastic though, so there's no complaint from me on that one!

Saxon's Saviour is the latest in the Protect And Serve series. This time it's Dallas who's given the Pandora Pine treatment of extremely well written action, family drama (or maybe Dallas might say helpful family interference) and romance.

Dallas just can't seem to help antagonising or insulting Saxon when they first encounter each other...theirs is not a romantic meet cute in the slightest. Once Dallas has gotten over his hangups about Saxon joining his crew at the firehouse, and Saxon can ackno

This is a favorite author and I’ve really been enjoying this series. I love the brothers and strong found family that steps up to welcome and support new members, plus the camaraderie overall all in the first responder community that they are all a part of.

Lots of strong, heartfelt emotions in this book. Dallas and Saxon struggle some with their connection. I think they are so alike in experiences but so different in how they have handled those and matured that it is a connection but also an obs

I received this book for free from Gay Romance Reviews in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Saxon’s Savior had everything I was looking for in a gay romance story. There was chemistry for sure. There was also drama in the form of a natural disaster. Lately, there was a slow heat meaning their feelings were built and not instant.

Dallas Haynes’ life has never been easy or simple. Losing his mother to a drug overdose, made him wan

Another McCoy finds love.

This, the third book in the series, tells the story of Dallas and Saxon.
Dallas had an than ideal childhood, until it wasn’t, and he was then fostered by the McCoy family. Saxon’s upbringing wasn’t stellar and although he and Dallas share this commonality, they certainly did not have the perfect start to their relationship.
Both are very likeable characters who work together as paramedics when Saxon is transferred to Gloucester Firehouse Three. They are at the very begi

Another exciting story in this series.

Saxon's Savior is the third book in Pandora Pine's Protect and Serve series. The story kept me on the edge of my seat for a lot of it and I loved it. While this is the third book in the series it actually would stand alone pretty well. I do think you'd enjoy it more if you read the series in order, though.

Dallas and Saxon are paramedics who end up assigned to the same firehouse. It definitely isn't love at first sight. I wouldn't exactly call this an enemies

Dallas Haynes is a paramedic who ended up in a tough situation. A position must be filled but he thinks it can b done on his time. Dallas is less than thrilled when the vacant paramedic's position has a new name and face. Imagine the demeanor of a man who is not amused.

Saxon James wishes to make a good impression as a new employee. He needs this - a bright new spot in his life. Especially since his last place of employment left him with an unpleasant moniker. Leave it to his new boss to throw co

This is intense, dramatic, emotional, sweet and romantic. Saxon has been pretty much on his own since he was 20. When his parents died, his big brother took off out west, and his sister turned to drugs. He talked to her and his neices once a week, and saw them regularly, until the man who was harassing him at work managed to get him transferred. That's when he met Ozzy, his boss, and Dallas, his partner for the ambulance. They're also brothers, and things didn't start off well between the 3 of t ...more

Dallas is the paramedic of the McCoy brothers and a bit of a closeted romantic. You think he is going to be this playboy, but he really just wants to find the one, without realizing that is what he wants. Like all the McCoy's he has a tragic past that pretty much shapes how he reacts to current issues.
Saxon is the new paramedic on the scene. He doesn't get a warm welcome from Ozzy or Dallas, due to an old coworker spreading lies. He is made out to be "know it all" and not a team player, but it i

Superior Saving Skills. In this continuation of the new (non-paranormal) series from Pine, a lot of people need saving in a lot of different ways, and everyone saves everyone else in their own ways. :D Along the way, yes, Saxon does find a Savior - in more ways than one (though religion is never mentioned, for those worried about that either direction). But you get all kinds of other things too - superheroics during a traffic accident gone bad (think: severe accident, 80s movie style action ;) ) ...more

This is an excellent addition to the Protect and Serve series and I really enjoyed it. I love Saxon but it took me quite a while to get past how badly Dallas treated him in the beginning. Why Ozzy and Dallas would believe Toby's lies about Saxon didn't make a lot of sense especially considering the history Dallas had with him. After Saxon had to prove himself things were better but Dallas still held back even though he was falling for him. When the worst happens and Saxon's life changes dramatic ...more

Saxon is starting over at a new fire station and after a not so warm welcome receives devastating and life changing news.

This is a great addition to the Protect and Serve series. I love the brothers and their parents, and it makes me happy to see each man find his perfect match. This time, the focus is on Dallas. While I think Dallas treats Saxon unfairly often on their quick road to love, I still think he's a good man who deserves happiness.
Saxon is sweet and caring, and his interactions with his nieces melt my heart. He goes through so much during this story, I hurt for him. As usual, it's wonderful to see Dall

The choice is taken out of his hands by the higher ups. Saxon is sent to take the fallen teammates position. He has been branded a troublemaker and NOT a team player by the higher ups.

This is a similar book with similar problems. Well there were other issues too. There are parts I like but the instalove is annoying.

Saxon was a paramedic at another house, with lots of homophobic members. He was repeatedly sexually harassed by a coworker, Toby, but wasn't really able to report it nor did he want to "shit where he ate". But he was willing to be whined & dined by his supervisor, Dallas.
