I have to say that this, like the first book in the series, is a fast read. But then that’s probably because it was so intense that I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next and I absolutely COULD NOT put it down. I was walking around like a zombie cleaning house half-heartedly because I had a Kindle in front of my face the whole time. Who needs a clean house when you have the Federal Paranormal Unit? The FPU is so secret that the agents in it don’t even really know what each other is capable of. Brock is the one to fall in this book and I have to admit I was dying to find out more about him. The book opens in the middle of a tense scene that involves an explosion, fire, kidnapped child, and of course the top secret unit that can’t move in with so many witnesses around. And the excitement (and HEAT!) just build from there. I have two warnings, read when you have time to finish the whole book. And read when no one is around except maybe your special one, because you will be moaning out loud! Five very well deserved stars!

Hot damn!!! This is one hot as hell story. The plot is intriguing, the characters amazing, the writing superb as usual. Brock is the leader for the FPU (Federal Paranormal Unit) he and his team all have special abilities. Enter Cynthia his lost love and the new leader of the unit. Cynthia has a family emergency arise and Brock rushes to help her out. Along the way old questions resurface as does their inability to stay away from each other. Awesome story, loved the storyline! Left me guessing on who was involved and what was going on. I was clueless for sure until it was revealed. The plot was full and rich. Brock, Cyn, Ramirez and Jane were once again able to fill this story with lots of laughter, and lots of HOT HOT scenes. "Instead, an insane mental storm of adult rated memories sat at the front of her mind. They were the really good kind too. Incredible memories bombarded her mind, the type where he'd given her multiple orgasms of the screaming kind." "she'd been hooked on him. On his body. His cock. His mouth, and oh that sinful tongue. His hands and body had helped release more endorphins in her than any amount of chocolate." "She had been sexually deprived for ten years of Brock and his orgasm-inducing cock. A girl had priorities." "I love your taste. It's addicting. And so sexy I can spend my entire life with your legs wrapped around my neck." We finally find out what Brock is and more about his abilities. He is one bad ass agent! We get glimpses of Jane Donovan and Ramirez's story and its going to be pretty epic. Definitely highly worth checking out this series. Milly Taiden doesn't disappoint!

Milly Taiden has done it again!! This book was full of action, danger, deceit, lies, sex and an undeniable love! Cyn ran away from the man she loved ten years ago! What happens when she is back and his boss! Brock is shocked to see the women he loves after so long and not knowing why she left! He decides he is not letting her go again and he will stop at nothing to claim his mate! Will he claim her? What happens when secrets from the past resurface? So much to love about this book,its a definite must read! One of my favorite Quotes, " Those pouty lips beckoned him closer. Lust roared through him like a volcano erupting for the first time."

Dangerous Protector is Milly Taiden's second book in her Federal Paranormal Unit series. Each book can be read as a stand alone book. In Dangerous Protector, James Brock is the head of the Federal Paranormal Unit. He focuses on his job and his teammates since the love of his life left him ten years ago. James runs into his love Cynthia Vega during a case and turns out she is now his new boss. An interesting plot ensues with some mystery, intrigue, and some hot hot hot bedroom scenes. I really don't want to spoil the story but wow Milly can write some awesome bedroom scenes!!! I had a love/hate relationship with Cynthia Vega. The plot was intriguing and it was interesting trying to figure out why Cynthia left James high and dry all those years ago. And then once the reason was revealed I was like seriously...hmmm...I can kind of understand but not really cause James is hot but hey she was young and foolish...and she did eventually make her way back to him...but still...maybe some couples counseling is in order. Highly recommend this story and I definitely recommend reading Wolf Protector too!!

I enjoyed this book as much as, if not a little more than I did the first book in the series. Dangerous Protector can be read as a standalone but I would also recommend reading the first book because it was just as good. This book has the perfect blend of mystery, suspense and steamy sex scenes and the chemistry between Brock and Cynthia is undeniable. You will definitely enjoy a few laughs while reading this book and I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.

I love these guys! This is the 2nd book in this fabulous series. This is the story of James Brock the leader of this very special dangerous team in the Federal Paranormal Unit. Brock has been a very fearless leader to this special group of agents, but he has also been a mystery because no one knows, or can tell what he is. Brock is a hybrid and a very powerful one to boot, it's what makes him such a great leader for this team. Brock has a deeply ingrained secret though, the woman he has always loved left him the day he proposed to her 10 years ago with no explaination at all. Now to top it all off the team has been assigned a new leader and when Brock meets his new leader, a blast from the past smacks him straight in the heart. This time she won't get away and he will work on it while working close to her trying to find a missing girl. Cynthia (Cyn) made a heartbreaking decision 10 years ago, she still loves Brock, but she is no good for him. How will she be able to work so close to the love of her life, the man that can take her to heaven and back in a blink of an eye, with just a smile? Now she has to be his leader and fight the strong pull he has on her body and soul in order to find her cousin who has gone missing. She can't tell him the reason she left, the truth is too painful, nor that she is going to leave again when the case is over for his own good, she loves him too much to do otherwise. There is much suspense that will keep you guessing. Fantastic mysteries await!

This is the second book to the Federal Paranormal Unit. This book is so hot I could not put it down the chemistry between Brock And Cynthia burned the pages. Brock was wondering why she left him 10 years ago but she did not want to tell him the truth. Brock was so determine to make her understand she was his mate and that he loved her. The animal inside him was always at the surface want to come out and show her who she belong to. When she came back, in to his life he did not know she was his boss of the special unit. I would recommend this well written, great book to anyone who likes hot paranormal romance with strong characters that will keep you looking for more. Author Milly Taiden did a wonderful job with this book she pulls you in with her hot and sexy leading men plus the great story lines to go with them. This book is a must have along with her other books is a must read

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ Stars This is the second book in Milly Taiden’s Federal Paranormal Unit.  It is a reaffirmation of how the shifter/paranormal world really works when mates are involved.  This is Brock and Cyn’s story of love lost and then found and the really smoking hot path they travel! Cynthia Vega has recently accepted an appointment as head of the Federal Paranormal Unit.  The only problem with that is the man that she will now be working with is her one true mate and love, James Brock. It has been years since she walked away from him, but she has always known where he was.  It had almost broken her when she left him; her only consolation was that she was protecting him. Fate has brought them together again and she doesn’t know if she can keep it professional or if she will succumb to the feelings she will always have for him.   She was his mate and he would never love anyone else.  He could not understand how she walked away from the love they shared.  Brock was determined that she would not walk away again.  Cyn was back in his life and he would not let her go again.  They have a job to do.  He will help her find her missing niece and she would tell him why she left him.  Will he be able to protect his mate?  Can she trust him enough to share her feelings and her heart?  Time is on his side, he will succeed. Hero: James Brock 4.5 stars Heroine: Cynthia Vega 4.5 stars Plot:  4.5 stars Steam Level:  4.5 stars Cliffhanger:  Yes Would I recommend this book: Yes!  This was a phenomenal Paranormal Romance!  It has it all, lost love, hot sex, mysteries to solve and don’t forget really sexy alpha male and female! Would I recommend this author: Yes! Milly Taiden continues to amaze me with her imagination and insightful expression of how love really works.  This is a remarkable series that will have you waiting impatiently for the next one to be released!

Is there ever a good reason to walk away from a relationship? I believe there is, yes. But I believe it should be a last resort instead of a first response. Cynthia walked away ten years ago without a reason why. James was left in the lurch without a way to talk to her. Both were hurting then, and that hurt only flared to life when they were reunited. But James’ control over his emotions was incredible. He could’ve ranted, raved, struck out verbally at Cynthia, but he didn’t. Instead, he wore down her defenses with words, reminding her of how good they were together, proving time and again that they were meant to be together come hell or high water. Cynthia’s stubbornness was commendable. She dodged his “Why did you leave?” question so many times I eventually started hoping he didn’t ask again. At this point I was thinking she wasn’t worth his time if she was just going to keep avoiding the conversation. As irritated as I was, I was also glad I didn’t give up on her. Because when James finally found out why she left, I understood. She was doing what any woman would do for the man she loves: protect him. What she didn’t realize was that he didn’t need protecting from what could be. He just needed her to believe they could weather that storm together when it happened. James’ love for Cynthia runs deep, and it shows in his pursuit of her, his relentless reminders of what they had, his promises that she would always be his mate. Their connection wasn’t simply a joining of bodies or a rehashing of old feelings. Their connection was based on a love that endures time and the possibility that their journey together may take a sudden detour should Cynthia’s mental health decline. But you know? The hardships ahead didn’t matter to James. He had her, her love, and it was all he needed. Anything else… Well, they’d face it together. ~~~ “It’s your smile that fills me with pleasure. It’s your hand I want to hold through the darkest and happiest times. Nothing and no one else matter more to me than you. As long as I have you, I don’t need anything else.” – James (ARC 148) ~~~ ***Received from author for an honest review***

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Dangerous Protector started out with a bang.  It was action packed from the beginning.  Milly did a great job of keeping me guessing until the very end.  I couldn’t understand why Cynthia would leave Brock.  They were so in love.  I also couldn’t understand why Brock let her go so easily.  He never tried to find her. This book took so many twists and turns that I had to keep reading. I loved how easily the people  of FPU interacted. The team seemed to accept Cynthia right away as their new boss. I also loved that  Brock finally decided he wasn’t going to let Cyn leave him again. He finally decided to keep his mate no  matter what. That thinking had me totally falling in love with Brock. That’s what I want to see in any  shifter book. Overall, this was a good book that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. 4-Bombs Reviewed by Tracy

If you have never read a book by this author trust me you’re definitely missing out. Not only are her covers gorgeously done but the story lines are amazing. This is the second novel in the series of the Federal Paranormal Unit; however, each can be read alone because the author has a way of making her stories based off characters and sub-characters (who may be able to have stories to themselves). This definitely makes me even crave her writing more. Brock is sexy and passionate about his work, team, and only one women (even though she left him without explanation). Cyn Vega was just that women, she made decision years ago and has had to deal with it even though she has not forgotten Brock. When faith has brought them back again but with a cruel way with Cyn being his boss will they be able to forgive and overcome the hurts in the past and move forward to a life together? The story line is flawless and will keep you reading all the way to the end wanting more. It has all the parts that one should have the meeting of amazing characters, freaking amazing plot, sexy steams that will have your kindle steaming. Oh and let’s not forget the twists that she threw in here, they will keep you guessing. I loved this novel and highly recommend this book to all you paranormal lovers, trust me you won’t regret it!!

I enjoyed reading Dangerous Protector. Cynthia knows she's in trouble when she see James at the rescue of a little girl. She has a big secret she does not want to tell James and it about what she found out about her family 10 years ago and that is why she left. She tries to keep her distant a from James, but finds it difficult to stay away. Then her 16 year old cousin comes up missing and she has to go and help her Aunt Clara find her. James insist on going with her and he's not taking no for an answer.  The next morning she find James outside waiting on her. He's determined not to let her go this time. James wants to find out why she left him 10 years ago without an explanation.

I’m going to start off with the couple things that bothered me just a little bit, before jumping into my gushing.  She focused a LOT on how sexy Brock was instead of the case.  It felt a little juvenile and almost even out of character.  The only other thing that stood out was that I don’t remember finding out what Brock’s “specialness” was in the last book, but it sounds more like we already knew throughout this one. Now for the fun.  I absolutely love Brock!  His playful side is adorable and his protective side is fierce.  The chemistry between him and Cyn is great and their story is very sexy.  The mystery part of the plot is exciting and exceptional.  It’s been a REALLY long time since a plot truly and honestly surprised me, and this one did.  There are a couple little things that I guessed, but the big picture was a total shocker – I loved it!  We get just a little of the others on the team, and it leads me to believe that Ramirez gets his story next, which I’m very excited for. Dangerous Protector is the best mystery I’ve read maybe ever!  If you’re looking for a sizzling romance that will also keep you guessing with the suspense, go grab this awesome read!

This book was just as hot and steamy as any of book of Milly Taiden's!! Wow, be ready to read some steamy action! Brock, wow! he sounds so fantastic in bed and out!! I get why Cynthia was running, but the girl really should have come clean to Brock why she ditched him 10 years ago. I mean come on, they could freakin' melt asphalt as hot as their life was/is!! And the woman is clearly still in love with him. This book is still very suspenseful, and at least Cynthia and Brock both acknowledge that they have to work together, and get their love life straight! So many twist and turns. There is no way you can guess who did the crimes. And love the little shocker thrown in the mix too! Although this is book 2 in the series, you don't have to read book 1 to follow this story. I was given a copy by the author/tour host in exchange for an honest review, for the book tour.

Another great book from Ms. Taiden. I seriously love her writing! She makes you really feel for her characters and invest in the stories, and this one is no different. It's full of lots of mystery and intrigue and a really hot love story. Cyn left James 10 years ago because she thought it was best for his happiness. Now she's back as his new boss and he wants answers. I adore James! He's always loved Cyn. She's his mate and even though she left him without an explanation he's willing to forgive her. I love how determined he is that Cyn is going to stay. He knows that she still loves him and he won't give up on her. Cyn is a really great character too. I was frustrated with her because she loved James so much but is afraid to be with him. I admired her reasons why she shouldn't but they are such a great couple. And the sex between them is HOT! I can't wait to get more in this series.

James Brock works for the Federal Paranormal Unit of the FBI. Ten years ago his Mate and the love of his life left him with no explanation after she accepted his marriage proposal. He has not had any type of social life since then. But now she's back and he is not willing to let her go again, but in order to keep her he has to find out why she left him the first time. Cynthia Vega loves James with everything she has. But after she finds out some news about her family she has to leave him. It's what she feels is best for him. Now ten years later she is back and she is his boss. She cannot let her feelings for him take over. When she finds out her niece is missing she needs to go look for her. James insists on going with her. How is she supposed to fight her feelings for him if they are going to be together constantly and does she really want to? My Opinion: I really enjoyed this book. I like that James was not just a werewolf but that he is a hybrid. I think that Cynthia should have talked to Brock all those years ago instead of running, but it could be considered a selfless reason also. I gave this book 4.5 Hearts. I have loved all of Milly's books that I have read so far and this one is no different. As I have not read book 1 yet, I can say that although this is the second book in a series it can be read as a stand alone. This book is well written, has great characters, and some pretty steamy scenes also. I definitely recommend reading! 'Read and Reviewed by LSK Sweetheart Reviews'

OMG ... Brock is one POWERFUL protector This is book #2 in the Federal Paranormal Unit series. Be sure to read Wolf Protector first to meet the team and read Erica and Trent's story. The team is on to their next case. This one hits very close to home! The hero and heroine have a very strong history and are drawn to each other, but trying to keep the lines professional. The sexual tension is extremely high and unlike many Milly books, we have to wait quite a while for the lines to be crossed ;) But this isn't just about the sex scenes. This is a mystery... think Intelligence meets The Originals. There is a boss the team can't stand. There are bumbling idiots. There is a missing girl out there. The visions and nightmares about what may have happened keep you second guessing up to the end! And now a bit about the story... Brock has just lead Galvez to another missing child. Luckily they found her in time and she was still alive! But when the agent who recovered the girl comes running out of the burning house he can't believe it - it is her! She had left him and now here she was back in his life! Cynthia Vega in the flesh. They both tried to ignore the other, until another case brought them together again. Cynthia's niece is missing and the local police aren't investigating. Come visit the small town of Holy Oaks and see what happens next. Trust me, Milly will not give you any mercy. ;) Favorite passages: - “Sorry, cariño, but there is no time to be worried about your delightful ass bouncing on the seat when we have to find a missing kid.” - She rolled her eyes. “I’m your boss.” He grinned. “You’re my everything.” - But it was useless. This man—this hybrid, was the only one who made her feel…anything. - “You don’t only own my heart, love. You own me fully. There’s one thing you need to get through that beautiful head of yours,” he tapped her temple. “I’m not letting you go again. You’re mine, and you’re staying mine.” - "Boss lady, how are you holding up with big and grumpy?" Ramirez greeted. - Then they were going to have even more trouble because Ramirez would find out she was a screamer. Not something she needed him to know. Ever. - Pleasure roared inside him. He tugged her closer, draping her on his lap. “The bureau doesn’t see it that way.” She rubbed her lips lightly over his. “That’s because they’re stupid. And scared. You’re big. Sexy. Strong. Too much for them to handle.” “You think I’m sexy, love?” - She would never think of honey in the same way again. Ever. - “I came to take back what’s mine.”

First I want to state that I did receive a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. Now, that out of the way...  I absolutely loved Brock's character since his first appearance in Wolf Protector. He carried that "Don't mess with me, I can squash you like a bug" vibe very well. So of course I've been eagerly awaiting his story. In typical Milly Taiden fashion, the main characters of course have some sort of back story to them. A shared past that has led to their current situation and although she throws hints here and there throughout the book, Ms. Taiden drags out the tension until this reader was ready to pull her own hair out.  I have to admit that although I was aggravated that Brock seemed to suffer from what I call PCS (post coital stupidity) I found myself thoroughly enjoying reading this book. I felt that Brock let her off the hook to easily. The big, tough, take no nonsense Other let himself be led by his hormones and I’m not sure how I feel about that. However, my personal feelings aside, I felt Dangerous Protector was well written and definitely worth the read.
