A Step Beyond Protection by Andie Renee

Special Agent Raven Somers, of the United States Secret Service, is finally returning back to duty after having been gone for over ten months because of a frightening incident. Only she isn't the same strong, always smiling and laughing, joyful woman that left. Raven is still reeling from the sudden death of her father, which coincided with her leaving. Her father was the one that inspired her on her path with Jesus, and she is now struggling in the dark because her light has died.

Raven strives to get back into a routine with the only familiar thing she has left, her career, but she is in grave danger of losing that as well, and is plagued by a fear that is paramount to her livelihood. However, at every turn she encounters an elusive group of men, and one powerful man that is always right there in the center of them with his broad shoulders and comforting arms open to her. Her mind screams for her to run away, but her heart begs her to run towards him. Circumstances force her to do the unthinkable every time.

In this first novel of the Protection Series, the United States Secret Service’s Counter Assault Team (CAT) go a step beyond just merely protecting their President and aide him when he delves into Raven’s life at every opportunity. However, President Drake Hawk is forced to cling to his confidence in Jesus while he struggles to wait for her, and humbly finds out that as always only God’s timing is perfect.

About the Author

I am a former United States Secret Service Special Agent that has fallen deeply in love with Jesus. I write Christian Romance Novels that I hope will provide you with a few hours of enjoyment as well as inspire and encourage you in your own personal, intimate relationship with Jesus. In regards to my first set of books that I am releasing, my Protection Series, each Novel stands alone, and they are based on the United States Secret Service. And they may be really different from what you normally read, but I am hoping that you enjoy the uniqueness and interesting situations that they all find themselves in and how Jesus heals their ways and works in each of their lives. May you always put Him first in all that you do, and deeply know the victory that only He can provide as the Holy Spirit guides you and instructs you in your journey on earth while your heart is held protectively, and securely in the hands of your Abba (Heavenly Father).May you find that Jesus is truly enough for you. Others may not understand, they may be looking for the "right words" to heal, speak or say, or the "right actions" that will inevitably set people free from bullies, dangerous situations, problems, or the harsh realities of life in this world that they can physically do themselves. But Praise Jesus because of your deepening relationship with Him the Holy Spirit has led you to a place in Him that you find out that He is truly all you need. That He alone can set you and others free, and that His name stands for victory, healing, power, strength, security. Jesus is our only Savior. The only one that can be your true soul mate and lead you into all truth is Jesus, and all by His loving Holy Spirit. You are bridged back to God and may you be stunned that you actually now have the true answer to all of the problems because in you, you hold the "right words" to heal, speak or say, and the "right actions" that will set people free from all negativity because you are holding onto Jesus! May you help others by bringing their focus back to where it needs to be~on Jesus!

I liked the premise of this book, but I did not get past page 60 or so. The run-on sentences were ATROCIOUS, as was the rest of the grammar, and I could not get past that to get into the book. The conversation was disjointed and stilted, and I felt that the hero was a huge bully. He took liberties with her AGAINST HER WILL, which she clearly stated, (following her around, pulling rank to get his way, demanding things, falling asleep in the same bed, and kissing her quite passionately) when they were complete strangers. I found him more creepy-stalker like than a loving, godly hero. I am thankful this book was free, or I would be very upset. I'm assuming all of these reviews were from the author and/or the authors friends, because this was not good reading at all. I expected more from an author that claims to be a Christian in regard to how fast the hero moved, too.

The ending was so much more unrealistic than what I had expected it to be, who can be that in love with someone just from a picture.

I really enjoyed this story! I loved the way the story between the characters flowed and I had to fight the urge to race through to see the end of the story. Although the story is fiction, stranger things have happened in real life! The development of the character's relationship with each other and with Christ made me laugh and cry. This will be one of my favorite stories for some time to come. You can really tell the author loves Jesus and I highly recommend this book and others that she writes!

The reviews have to have been posted by the author because there is no way that many people loved this book! Beyond ridiculous plot, are you kidding me? I couldn't get past page 50 before giving up. Glad this was free. I gave 2 stars because at least the spelling, punctuation, and grammar were decent.

My prayer is that we could have a president like Drake in office! I would vote for him eveey time. Guess we wont see one of these until after God cleans all the "trash" off our wourld. This is a gteat book , it makes me miss ythe old days when people put God first.

I loved this book. I laughed through most of it, cried through some. cheered through the rest. The bond the CAT guys have is amazing. Drake was the perfect man. Raven's journey from pain to victory was awesome. I highly recommend this book.

I truly enjoyed reading this! I was surprised to read some negative reviews , but I chalk that up because of the world we live in. You can't please everyone. The beauty of that stems from God creating us each individually. No two the same. I found myself only able to put it down once because it was past my time to be sleeping. I loved the Bibical quotes and the character's reliance on Jesus as their center (through thick and thin). Maybe a little off kilter if you are seeking reality, but I enjoy some fun and fantasy in my reading time. It was grear! Thak you for taking the time to write and share your novel.
