Jared, The Protectors Series by Teresa Gabelman
The VC Warriors are an elite group of vampire who protect innocents, whether human or those of their own race. Jared Kincaid, along with other Warriors, are shocked when a fiery red head with a gun and attitude, bring news of young teens being turned into an army of half-breed vampires capable of taking out all VC Warriors.
Breaking into the famed VC Warriors compound was definitely not the smartest thing Tessa Pride has ever done, but she will do anything for her brother, Adam. The Warriors held the one person she knew was responsible for her brother being turned into a half-breed and nothing will stop her from getting what she needs to help her brother, not even a Warrior whose eyes could make her melt with one look.
Jared and Tessa join forces in a desperate scramble to find who is responsible. With a war between Warriors and half-breeds brewing, suspicions of traitors in their midst put the lives of everyone involved on the line.
My introduction into Ms Gabelman’s world of the VC Warriors was not with a whisper but with a shout and the second installment in this series is EVEN BETTER!!!! In the first book I truly had a “fictional character crush” on Jared now it is full on “LOVE”! Of course he is all the things we all look for in our vampire heroes. He is alpha to the core, strong, courageous, confident, smoking hot, sexy as sin, but Jared is also quite the character. He is funny, a practical joker, and a real pain in the ass when he thinks it is funny! He is the guy/vampire every guy wants to be friends with and every girl just wants!
When Jared meets Tessa it is under circumstances I never thought I would see in a vampire novel. I do not want to ruin the surprise for you but I will say that from the get go Red, Jared’s name for Tessa, gives Jared a run for his money and this is only the beginning for this amazing couple. Theirs is not a love story for the faint of heart. It is a love story that will keep you guessing and rushing to devour every word just to see what will happen next!
Ms Gabelman has an incredible ability to write a strong amazing Alpha hero and then create his perfect compliment in her compelling, fiesty heroine. Their chemistry is off the charts and the love that ensues can only be describes as EPIC! Having read both Damon and Jared, I can tell you that her character development is among the absolute best I have ever seen. Tessa is such a brilliant against all odds woman that has kept her brother and her Gramps together since his worthless father hit the road. She is absolutely the type of woman Jared needs! Fate really knows what she is doing, doesn’t she?
Once again Ms Gabelman has proven why her books are nominated for the best of the best that Indie has to offer. I cannot wait to see what comes next in her series that rivals any I have read to date!
