The Protector by Jessie G. - #Review #Excerpt #Giveaway @JessieGBooks

The Protector
(Sizzling Miami, Book 3)
by Jessie G

Genres: Gay, Ménage, BDSM, Erotica, Romance
There was a time when Master Saul Alvarez filled his days fighting and his nights teaching willing subs the pleasure of his whip. His compassionate understanding of the masochist mind makes him the most sought after professional sadist in the Miami BDSM community. Neither role invites long term relationships, but he’s comfortable with his solitary existence until he is charged with guarding Durango's prized whore. One look into those terror filled eyes has him vowing to risk it all to save the beautiful man.

Javier Escardo had been praying for death, but never expected the stone cold killer he got in response. One glimpse into those sinful eyes reveals not only the promise of retribution, but a reason to live. Seven years later, free and mostly sane, Javier is determined to take what belongs to him. Saul’s heart. Through hell and back, through layers of pain and shifting realities, that one truth has remained firm. His protector needs saving and he can’t do it alone.

Hidden beneath the public persona, Kyle Jansen is a man who craves to be invisible without being insignificant. He longs to find a Master who will see his need to be taken over without abusing him and a lover who will care about him beyond the sexual games. It isn't until he encounters the smoldering combination of Saul and Javier that he realizes it was never supposed to be just one partner at all.

Can two battered hearts be mended by the love of a third? Kyle becomes the light to their darkness, and he’s willing to risk his heart for theirs, but when the past threatens Saul, will Javier’s sacrifice destroy them all?

Author’s Note: The Protector deals with issues of sexual abuse and forced prostitution. While these acts are not detailed on the page, there are many references to them and the ongoing fight to heal and overcome. This book should not be read by anyone who would be adversely affected by these references.

A voyeur at twenty-eight--how had he sunk so low? In his defense, Kyle couldn't remember ever seeing anything as beautiful as the two men in the corner. Both of Latino descent, their olive skin and dark hair immediately pinged on his radar. As he stood in line to order, Kyle couldn't help but watch as the dominant comforted his partner. That moment when his hand fell to the submissive's neck had been so electric that Kyle felt it across the small café. Then they just breathed together, slow and steady, until they were one breath in unison.

It hadn't been his intention to get the table next to theirs, but by the time he sat, all the rest were taken. Neither looked his way, which was surprising because most people did, men and women alike. Some said he had a look about him, not too tall, not too broad, with that all-American, boy-next-door vibe. Not a bad package that was kicked up by pale blue eyes that had been described as freaky or sexy depending on who was fucking him, and blond hair that could border on white if he stayed out in the sun too long. Having just come back from Mexico, shooting new scenes for the porn house he contracted with, he knew all the normal things that drew attention were amplified by his deep golden tan.

For once he was glad not to be noticed. Their moment was so intimate he wouldn't want to intrude and settled for huddling in a chair against the wall. Yet, as much as he reminded himself to focus on the pitiful grilled chicken salad, his gaze kept straying. When the tip of that pink tongue teased those full lips, he felt his cock swell. Kyle couldn't recall the last time he reacted to anyone without the benefit of some Viagra, and to have it happen now, in a crowded café, stunned him. Then the dominant one leaned in and licked him. No, no, shit, he held him in place and tortured that exquisite mouth so expertly it was a wonder Kyle didn't shoot in his pants just watching.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Jessie G. brings badassery back with the third installment in her Sizzling Miami series. Featuring the unlikely family of ex-cons with unexpected soft sides, I was thrilled to see characters from both books 1 and 2 return to support Saul, Javier and Kyle on their journey.

Saul and Javier have been together for seven years, if you want the easy answer. Despite the unconditional love they have for each-other, their damaged past continues to haunt them, and neither man is able to fully meet the others' needs.

Kyle is a twenty-eight year old porn star who has yet to decide what he wants to be when he grows up.  Undeniably drawn to the contrasting personalities that are Saul and Javier, Kyle's heart recognizes his need for both men to bring balance to his life. Saul and Javier have been walking an unequal road for so long that even the possibility of a third lover who meets both of their needs might not be enough to heal their broken parts.

A story of joy and sorrow, suffering and healing, life, love, laughter and loss; THE PROTECTOR is a captivating story with layers built upon layers. The sharp balance of light and darkness guides readers down into the depths of the character's most painful nightmares and back up again. Powerfully emotional and stunningly sensual, with danger, drama and romance, THE PROTECTOR is the latest must-read installment in a series that keeps getting better.

My Favorite Quote:
"Yeah, but it wasn't just about the money. It was a statement, albeit a stupid one, a coming out. If I was going to be accused of fornicating, well gosh darn it, I was gonna be the best damn fornicator around!" - Kyle Jansen
Coming Soon to B&N!
Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I'd begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: To be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it's a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With two published books and counting, it's been amazing to have made this dream my reality.

I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics and happily ever after. I'm a lover of strong secondary characters and series filled with families, biological or chosen. All are themes you'll find throughout my books. 


  1. Thank you so much! I'm thrilled that you loved my guys enough to share them with your audience. I've heard writers say the put their blood, sweat and tears into their work, and now I know what they mean. This was such an emotional journey for me, but seeing reactions like this make every tear I shed worth it. Good luck to all and thank you again!

  2. I haven't read any of the series, but this particular book hits 3 of my likes: hurt/comfort, BDSM, and menage.

  3. Loved all of the boys, old ones and new ones in both books. I especially enjoyed their interactions and how they all looked out for each other. Beyond excited for book #3!

  4. I've only read book 2 so far and adored Bull and Ian. They are perfect for each other

  5. This is a new-to-me series, but I already love the way this book sounds! Thanks for the chance to win.
