Everyone makes mistakes in life. Unfortunately, Holly Richards has become an expert at taking the wrong path in life. This time, she may have gone so far that she has alienated the one person who has always been there for her. Will she be able to make the right decision for once in her life?
Tommy Reed’s world shifted the night he found Holly Richards lying in a pool of blood on the ground. For reasons he can’t explain, he feels the need to protect Holly from her own past. In the process, he’s hoping to also teach her that there is more to D/s than releasing pent up emotions.
Life isn’t easy for the former-junkie and the cop. Some of those closest to Tommy are less than thrilled with his devotion to Holly. Those who pressured Holly into her former life are worried she’ll share what she knows. Is there any way for both of them to come away from the situation unscathed?
“Spanking,” I say, my voice barely audible.
“What was that? You need to speak up.”
“I want you to spank me,” I whisper a little bit louder. I don’t recognize my strained voice.
“Spanking how? You said you weren’t into pain, but now you’re saying you want me to spank you. Do you mean lightly, teasing you as I run my fingers through your pussy. Or are you willing to let me push you to your limit, spanking you hard with my bare hand or possibly a belt, thrusting my fingers into your throbbing core until you come so hard your juices are dripping down your thighs?”
Hearing him list the different ways he could turn my ass red brings my body to life. I feel myself growing wetter with every suggestion, not wanting but needing to feel the sensations he describes.
“I want that,” I admit meekly. As I sit next to him, our bodies barely touching, I resist the urge to climb into his lap, pushing fabric to the side and taking what I need at this moment. “I need you to show me that pain can be pleasure.”
“Are you sure?” He asks sincerely. “I can respect the fact that you said you don’t want pain. I won’t lie and say I don’t enjoy inflicting it to an extent, but if that’s not something you crave, it won’t be fun for either of us.”
I look him in the eye, wanting him to see and feel the sincerity of my words. “You might be the only man I have ever trusted enough to explore that with.”
He wraps his arms around me, nearly pulling me off my stool. “I’m honored that you feel that way, babygirl. What else?” He urges me to continue. I shift in my seat, feeling a damp spot forming in my panties. If the thought of him doing these things to me affects me so deeply, I’m going to be slipping over myself when he’s actually touching my body.

Unexpected Protector is the second book in the Isthmus Alliance series. While I liked the first book, Unexpected Angel, I didn’t LOVE it. I didn’t connect with the characters very easily, and I really didn’t like Holly in that book.
Things changed for me with this second installment. I was better able to connect with Tommy and Holly, two people brought together by some seriously fucked up circumstances. Both of them are holding on to baggage from their childhood, neither quite sure on how to let it go.
I definitely liked Holly a lot more in this book, once I learned more about her past and the reasons behind her deplorable actions in the first novel. I enjoyed following Holly’s journey to becoming more of the woman she truly was, instead of the woman that the drugs made her. It wasn’t easy for her, and she had a hard time letting go of a lot of her defense mechanisms, but once she was able to, you could tell she was in a much better place.
We still haven’t seen Tommy slay his demons, and I’ll be anxious to see if he’s able to overcome his past in future installments.
DISCLAIMER: This book has one HELL of a cliffhanger! I shall now commence doing the pee-pee dance while I await the next book so I can find out what happens!!
