Review: Protecting His Asset (Shifter Protection Specialists Inc. #2) by S.A. Welsh

Float like a butterfly. Kill like a swallowtail.

Scott knows his boring day is over the second a bloody and scared George Kelvin crashes into his office, claiming people are trying to kill him. He knows he should pass the case over to one of his brothers, but he can’t seem to do it. The strength and resilience of the man mixed with a quirky sense of humor fascinate him. He may be a human in the company of powerful shifters, but he’s just as deadly and well trained as the rest of his brothers.

With devious CIA agents, foreign forces gunning for what George possesses and George’s power-hungry father, who is also Deputy Director of the FBI, Scott begins to wonder if he’s bitten off more than he can chew.

George always knew his father was dangerous and cruel. However, he never thought that those titles would inadequately sum up the lengths his father is willing to go to, to get what he wants. The only chance he has is using whatever is on file against his father. Staying alive to do that is another challenge. When he runs into the Shifter Protection Specialists, Inc. office, he’s desperate, but isn’t convinced anyone can protect him from his father. Risking more than he’d thought possible, he discovers that maybe he is more than he’s always been taught to believe.

One thing is for certain—his father is not going to give up easily.

“He lived with one goal in mind since he was old enough to understand what hatred was, and he was so close-close enough that he could taste it. Colonel Kelvin wasn’t untouchable. And George was near being able to expose every little dirty secret with proof to back it up.”-George Kelvin

George Kelvin’s life plan is simple: gather information to bring his father down secretly. Well, that was the plan until his psychotic brother dropped off the key that sets the whole thing in motion prematurely. Weeks later, George finds out that his brother was charged with attempted murder on a celebrity model and his shifter boyfriend. It is only a matter of time before his father realizes what George is up to and now he must disappear once again.  So where can a man like George find a place where he feels safe, protected, and loved? Why, the shifter protection agency that helped capture his brother, Frank Jr. a.k.a. Not-Barry, of course.

Protecting His Asset is the second book in the Shifter Protection Specialists Inc. series by S.A. Welsh. It should not be read alone since the sequence of events that led up to this one are essential. This book focuses on the journey that George is thrust upon and the man he falls in love with Scott, the protection agency’s boss.

I was looking forward to this book and I got to say that I don’t love it nor do I hate it. Here’s what I loved about it- the character development and description was well detailed and easy to get into. I felt that I personally knew these men and felt part of their family. Then the scenes between Scott and George, Phew! They were hawt!! I also enjoyed getting to know the other characters a lot better in this book. It gave us a glimpse into the close knit family Aleski (Purrfect Protector Book 1) and Scott are a part of. The nerd and jock jokes were fun to read as it appealed to this little nerd’s heart.

Here’s what I didn’t like- the book had too much going on and not enough explanation to the events that were taking place. Many of the scenes were drawn out and felt at times to take a while to end. It also seemed to have much more melodrama between the characters that had been mainly men. I do not think men, especially shifter men, would act this way. Possessive, yes. Whiny, no. Complain (all men do) and closed off-ish, yes.  Wishy-washy, not so much.

Overall, it was an enjoyable read that kept me interested until the end. If the series continues I will most definitely pick up the next one because these characters are too awesome to ignore. Plus, I love a great M/M romance and this series has great potential!

I was given a copy of this book as a gift from The JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review.
