My Protector (Bewitched and Bewildered #2) by Alanea Alder

Gavriel Ambrosios has been dreaming of his accident prone mate for weeks. Now that he is nearing the apex of his vampiric transition, she has made her way to Lycaonia, just when he is at his most dangerous.

Elizabeth Monroe was planning on staying in Lycaonia while humans forgot about the swan dive she took out of her boss’s office window. Little did she know that this short side trip was about to become permanent. Gavriel is the mate she has always dreamed of. Even as he sweeps her off her feet his need to protect her has him pushing her away. She’s both concerned with and drawn to his darker nature, but is determined to see him through his transition.

In the shadows their enemy has targeted Gavriel when they know he is at his most vulnerable. They creep ever closer to the Alpha estate putting the men on high alert.

But as the days get shorter and the nights get longer Elizabeth begins to wonder, which is the bigger threat? The enemy or her mate?

First of all, let me tell you how this review is written: after reading all 10 books in a row because I couldn’t help myself to take a break and write the review, I re started reading them again, one by one so I can write this. Crazy? NO!! that is just my excuse to re-read this series as much as I can.

I started reading the “Bewitched and Bewildered” series when I was in a hunt to read some very hilarious books, and in every single thread somebody mentioned Alanea Alder’s books. Just let me tell you that they made me laugh out loud, got banned from reading them at night because my husband would lose his sleep from my laughter! Or ship me to another room and be quiet!!!

Kind warning:
During my time making this review I have noticed that there are 2 sides of fans for the series: 1 part of which I am also an active participant which absolutely loved the books and find it hilarious and the 2nd part which gives reviews with words like immature, ridiculous and couldn’t even finish the first book to find out more that happens during the series. Well, I don’t blame which side you are, everyone is entitled to an opinion!

From my point of view, the story is so clever written that I absolutely am in love with every little detail. It is one of my all-time favorite series and can’t wait to see what happens next!
If you are a reader who prefers only books with a reality check and hates the dose of silliness written all over, I don’t think this book is for you. Usually when I read books, I borrow all it has to offer, so for me, personally, I loved being part of that world, and actually did not mind that much the down parts that maybe someone would categorize these series as a DNF (insta-love for instance or too much “Doctor Who” references).

My Protector is the story of Gavirel Ambrosios, the vampire that soon meets his mate, Elizabeth Monroe. They are such a great pair! Beth is a niece of the Vampire Elder in Noctem Falls. She soon figures that Meryn is more then we think and that whatever is coming to them she needs to support and protect her since her role is bigger than they can think of.

In this book we find out that Meryn is expecting a baby so that means the “boring” life in the Alpha estate is becoming less and less!

“E-Liz-A-Beth, you’ll take me to Noctem Falls won’t you?” Meryn begged giving her puppy dog eyes.

“Of course I will. We can go there after DragonCon next year,” she promised.

“Oh no. She talked you into that convention thing.” Aiden glared at his mate.

“It’s perfectly safe. Think of it this way. It’s an event where thousands of people just like Meryn get together for a couple days and live it up,” Elizabeth explained. All five men paled.

“Thousands of people,” Colton whispered.

“Just like Meryn?” Keelan asked.

Elizabeth looked around. The men had that deer in the headlights looks. “Maybe not just like her.”

“Thank goodness. One Meryn in the world is enough,” Colton teased, looking relieved.

“It’s because I’m a ‘Limited Edition’. Y’all should be grateful for even knowing me,” Meryn huffed.

“We are, my love. We are.” Aiden scowled at his men over Meryn’s head.

“We wouldn’t trade you for a sane version any day,” Colton reassured her.

Meryn smiled then frowned. “What do you mean ‘sane version’?”

In My Protector, Elizabeth Monroe is one key character, since now they see the war coming. They anticipate that all the warriors will have their mates soon, meaning their old-fashioned system has to be updated. Little by little, measures of precautions are taken, but unfortunately, not enough. Meanwhile fighting an invisible enemy.
