About The Protector:Salvation, Pennsylvania. The commune located in the small town was advertised as a modern Utopia: a place to live, share, and learn with other like-minded young people. Cate Pendleton’s sister was one of them. Now she’s dead—and Cate won’t rest until she finds out who killed her. Stonewalled at every turn, she approaches a DC Fixer for help and ends up with Damon Knox, a mysterious man with a secretive past. But Cate soon discovers that she not only needs Damon, she wants him, which isn’t good—for the attraction brewing between them will only lead to complications that can turn into danger . . . Damon has tried to erase the hellish memories and the evil that happened in Salvation ever since he left a long time ago. Still, he can’t turn his back on Cate. As Damon works with Cate to uncover her sister’s killer, he finds himself drawn to her more and more. But how will she feel about him when she learns about his connection to the place? Joining forces to uncover the truth, they must stay one step ahead of a cunning killer who’s bent on not being exposed.
The book was ok and I had no problem finishing the story, but I wasn't feeling compelled to finish the story in order to find out all the answers. I was reading the book at my usual pace and I wasn't as excited as I was when I was reading the third book. This one had some strong moments that I can still remember despite all the time that has passed and others that were very forgettable. Damon caught my eye from the previous book and I continued to like him through the story. We got to see more about his past and everything that made him the person he is now. Cate was focused on finding what exactly happened to her sister and I liked her for that. She risked a lot of things when she was digging into the past, but she never gave up and that's a trait I want my heroines to have. Cate and Damon relationship had a good development and for me, they worked as a couple. They are a good pair and I never felt like their relationship was forced or anything like that. I was happy with them the whole time and that's the reason I will recommend the book. The romance was great and it had some suspense.
