Building a future…Knee deep in wedding preparations, Hawke and Tate are celebrating something even more important – Matty’s final round of chemotherapy treatment. As they anxiously await confirmation that their son is finally in remission, both men strive to give their little boy a normal life including a new house, playdates with Matty’s new best friend, Leo, and a new support system of men and women who are starting to seem a lot like family.An important question to ask…Meanwhile, Mav is looking to make things official with Eli despite the young man’s busy schedule with medical school. But before he can ask the man of his dreams that very important question, he has to get past Eli’s family first, including a posse of two overprotective fathers, several intrusive uncles and a little girl who just wants to brush Mav’s hair!Figuring it all out…With Memphis, Brennan and Tristan settling into their newfound relationship and our favorite threesome from New York visiting for the wedding, there are plenty of chances for old friends to connect and new bonds to be formed. The best kind of chaos…And of course, what wedding wouldn’t be complete without a little drama including some white hot sexual tension between a not so old grandfather and a certain cocky bodyguard? Add in some more Barrettis, a couple of precocious kids, several dogs, one spoiled cat and a gaggle of new, hot alpha men and you’ve got the perfect storm for a holiday that only the Protectors could pull off!...

    This is a scorching hot read with plenty of sex to go around. That's what I've come to expect from Sloane Kennedy, and this Christmas special doesn't disappoint. There's a bunch of side plots here that weave together into a story of family and friendship. The main focus is on Hawke and Tate getting married, Mav proposing to Eli (after getting his fathers' blessing, of course), and Ronan and Seth wanting to start a family.Hmmm. I'll take What's the common theme here? for $400, Alex. Kennedy is far too obsessed with kids and marriage. There are other ways to get a HEA!But I still read her books. Because love FOREVA and hot, dirty sex. BONUS: an insanely lickable scene with Mace and his two men (Jonas and Cole) that had me seeing double, and Logan and Dom going at it after nine years together (I never read their story, but they're the godfathers of the Barretti clan, so it was fun to see them together).Of course, all the kids are perfect and talk like little adults. Matty the Wise One is in full superhero mode, benevolently sharing his Spiderman doll.There is little angst here; the OTT drama (and it wouldn't be a Sloane Kennedy book without it!) happens with the kids Seth and Ronan want to foster. There's a "scary" scene and evil relatives. But the dog saves the day! I'm very much looking forward to Magnus (there are far too many M names in this series) and Dante's story, which should be a delicious enemies-to-lovers, bi-for-you feast, as well as Caleb and Jace's story (Caleb, Seth's brother, is not doing well here and is still pining for Jace who rescued him from the mental institution and his abusive father's clutches).

    I loved this extra Christmas story about all my favorite men ;)In this book Hawke and Tate get married, so ofcourse we got more of Matty. I love that kid !!I loved seeing all my favorite couples happy or on the way to find their own hea. I'm very curious about Dante and Magnus, but to be honest I'm even more curious about Caleb's story. Unfortunately, I think it's gonna be a while until we get to his book, since Caleb is still just 17.As always, this book had romance, happiness, suspence and some heartbreak (my heart that is). It also had some very nice steamy scenes :) I hope there will be many many more books in this series and the others !!! I will read them all :D

    ***4.25 Stars***"The hard part was everything that came before we found each other."This was such a wonderful holiday themed extended epilogue for all the previous couples in this series. It's an 8 foot wide, sparkling and sexy red bow of an HEA for everyone! Ronan and Seth are getting a family...Hawke and Tate are getting married...Eli and Mav are getting engaged...Mace, Cole and Jonas are getting double penetration...hey, everyone wants what they want. A little something for everyone. It wouldn't be Sloane Kennedy if there wasn't some over the top drama, but nothing can hold these men back from the lives they want....especially when it comes to protecting their family. And there's nothing fiercer than this circle of friends and extended family coming together to protect and care for each other.The end of the novella set up the next book, which is Dante and Magnus...but what it also did was serve up a big tease for Caleb and Jace (Eli's brother and Mav's friend)....and I have to say....I WANT. I WANT RIGHT NOW!! ***A quick side note: One thing I did notice while reading is that there's not really any women in this series (well, except for Jonas's friend Casey and a couple of moms - - and I don't count kids), but no friend or neighbor or anything? This strikes me as kind of odd. I wonder why this is?

    Yeah : 4 stars because I’m a fan of Sloane Kennedy’s addictive writing and stories and we get all the men from the protectors series.This is not a standalone : you need to have read all the previous books in the series before hand as all the protectors men are there, as well as the men from “Barretti securities”.This book is a follow-up of all the couples as they settle into their relationship and build their families, with a wedding, the addition of adopted kids with a past of abuse and the promise of more adventures.And of course, there is my favorite hero from the series : Matty, a real sunshine, able to put all these hot and sexy men on their knees and bring out the best out of them. “I’m going to marry Leo someday. He doesn’t like broccoli and I don’t like peas. He’ll eat my peas and I’ll eat his broccoli … We both think our daddies kiss too much so we’re not gonna”.It’s fast-paced as usual, very family-oriented, with a lot of hotness and sweet romance.Another nice treat while waiting for the next installment about Dante and Magnus.

    This is a special holiday story for the men of The Protectors Series, their families, friends, co-workers, and even the pets! I really enjoyed this story and it had little glimpses into all our favorite damaged men and their significant others. It was great to see life moving forward for them all - changes happening, new people being added to their families, and of course a great set up for the next book in the series! This book is about love & life, about living a life you may not have thought you deserved (most of these men in the series felt they should be alone and miserable for their life to atone for sins), and about new beginnings. We get to see a lot of new beginnings in this story and they are all pretty emotional. I think this quote from the story sums up the feelings of each couple as they remain devoted and committed to each other.“Nothing will ever change what we have. We may be tested by whatever the future brings, but we won’t be changed by it, do you hear me? We’re in this together until the end.”I can't wait for the next book in the series - I love how Sloane Kennedy brings these tortured men together. It looks like Magnus and Dante are going to be a couple with a lot of fireworks, so hang on! 5 Stars!

    I'm holding off on rating this as I read out of order. I thought it would be a light fluffy holiday book. My bad. It was good but I was confused which is totally my own fault. I didn't realize this book has couples from three different series the author writes - too many storylines going on. I'll read again when I'm up to date

    I'm a sucker for Slone Kennedy and her stories, I do not care what she writes, if my boys are in it I'm going to read it and probably love it. This Christmas novella was perfect to catch up with the old couples and even get a glimpse to future stories! I am dying with excitement with all the information we got from here. I saw at least three new couples/threesomes here and I'm over the moon. The last part with Logan and Dom was perfection.

    This was great ! Spending time with the various couples, their families and friends. I really enjoyed this and especially loved the Matty moments- particularly when he announced he would be marrying his best friend Leo for so many practical reasons ! A great read ❤️

    We get to catch up with all the wonderful men in this series and I loved it. There are quite a few different stories going on at the same time but it isnt hard to follow at all plus you get multiple point of views. I also have to say that certain parts of this story made me tear up. The love between Seth and Roan makes me smile. They become a real family and work your way into your heart from the beginning. Hawke and Tate's wedding scenes made me smile to see them so happy and in love. The children in this story plays a big part and it is great to see Matty doing so well now.Mav and Eli are a great couple. The love they have shows and how they make it work. We dont get to see enough of Memphis, Brennan and Tristan but what we do get is them living their lives together.The love scenes as usual per Sloane are hot. The chemistry between this whole family is amazing. They would do anything for each other and it shows through out the whole story.I cant wait to read the next book which I know will be great and see what she has in store for this group.*ARC provided by Author in exchange for an honest review.Reviewed by Jodi from Alpha Book Club

    4.5 stars. Loved this one. There may have been a few sniffles too, and I defy anyone to read it and not feel the love, which we definitely need after the events of the last week!!Set around Tate and Hawke's wedding, this instalment moves several threads along in the series. Still have to say little Matty is a huge fave of mine, and who knows, with his declaration towards the end of the story, he may be amongst the next generation of Protectors.

    It was great to catch up with everyone again even if I had trouble remembering who is who! As much as I like this series, I do find it strange that they all are rushing to get married and having children. Even Tristan, Brennan and Memphis! Sorry guys, but I'm not sure how many DPs you can have when you've got rug rats running around.

    This book is a holiday book with the Protectors Series. I loved this book. Everyone is in it. Christmas is a time of holiday cheer with family and friends, all of our loved ones. I loved how everyone was in this book. I loved seeing these men moving forward in their lives and their old and new families. We even get kids and pets. We get weddings engagements new people introduced. I loved little Matty and naked Leo. Its is told in multiple view points. Seth and Ronin they have such big hearts. I think Ronin and Seth were my favorite couple in this installment. I love all these men and the extended families. I loved watching these big men, who feel they may not deserve what they have, with such turmoil and drama be happy and watch them grow and set up their futures. I love how these big alpha men turn into a puddle of goo with kids around. Makes my heart flutter. Plus it is about the time of year of laugh, love, and cheer. These men love their families. Just because they aren't blood doesn't matter to them. I have loved Sloane Kennedy for a long time and can’t wait to read more of her Protector series. Actually I can't wait to read whatever she puts out. I believe this book is also setting up for the next installment in series with Magnus and Dante.

    **** This is a transitional story of all of our series characters gathering during the holidays. Wonderful Christmas time tale, but so much more. We get heartwarming events, lots of sex by different couples we already know and love. We also get the deep core of the giving hearts of our "family" of men. A wedding, children saved, and hearts renewed. Not meant to stand alone. Absolutely lovely !ENJOY !!==========

A chance to catch up with our favorite Protectors, and a chance to celebrate not only the holidays, but love, joy, peace and surrender. At the end of the day that is what these strong, willing men bring. Christmas is coming and love is in the air. One of the couples have decided to go beyond the "I love you" and make an everlasting commitment. Who doesn't love a wedding after all? One click and get a special invite to the Protector wedding to end the year. As the men reminisce about their meeting and journey toward forever more, the author takes us on a journey of acceptance, wonder and remembrance. A lifetime of firsts.As Maverick prepares to make a lasting commitment to Eli, with an intimidating ask the father (Dom Barretti) for permission, Ronan and his husband Seth find themselves moving their family forward in addition, even with Seth's anxieties. "Nothing will ever change what we have. We may be tested by whatever the future brings, but we won’t be changed by it, do you hear me? We’re in this together until the end."-- Ronan."A Christmas wedding," he murmured. "What were we thinking?" -- TateAll this couple wanted was to express their love and commitment in front of friends and family. With the prospect of their wedding being postpone, Hawke was going to make sure that never happened. Tate was finally happy and Matty was cancer free and being the child he never got an opportunity to be. It took wonderful friend like Ronan to offer the perfect venue to make their dreams come true.As the day gets closer, Seth and Ronan find themselves opening their hearts and their home to three underprivileged kids who needed the men just as much as the men needed them. Friends and family banned together as Ronan and Seth almost lose the family that have landed in their lap. You have to read to understand the enormity of it all.Our resident ménage à trois Brennan, Tristan & Memphis offer support, while proving that their love is just as strong as ever. The same as Mace, Jonas & Cole. We are reintroduced to Eli's brother Caleb and his protector Jace, whose story I am waiting patiently on. And let's not forget out resident grandfather Magnus as he continues to ignore Dante, whose story ATONEMENT jumps on the scene in 2017. I don't think I will ever get tired of Sloane's men. Especially little Matty who claims of Zane and Connor's son: "I'm going to marry Leo someday." Be still my heart. Out of the mouth of babes.I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this book without bias or persuasion from The Author.Reviewed by Cee from Alpha Book Club

    Could it be more perfect?!The perfect mix of pleasure and pain brings a Christmas gift from Sloane Kennedy as we catch up with the beautifully crafted men of her Protectors and Barretti stories.No one writes thruples better than Sloane in my opinion and we get a wonderfully emotive glimpse into Mace, Cole and Jonas' powerful connection with each other and a sexual encounter which puts the temperature into the stratosphere.I can never decide which of her beautiful men I love the most but Ronan comes close to the top of a very delicious tree and this Christmas special sees him and Seth receiving the most special of gifts.But then we get Hawke and I'm torn all over again. The feelings that Sloane evokes simply by having Tate call him Michael is difficult to articulate but it breaks my heart while simultaneously warming my soul.The rest of the guys all get a catch up too as they move onwards together, Mav and Eli take the next step on their journey and Memphis, Tristan and Brennan see that their unconventional relationship can be as committed and perfect as the rest.There is also a bonus hint of what's coming next with Magnus and Dante, and a potential new relationship focus with the firm's IT girl and two of Ronan's top guys which intrigued me.Hopefully it won't be long before the next Protectors novel is out.

    4.5 StarsOh I loved catching up with the characters, seeing how they're adapting to life together, the families they're building...and the sex! Oh my! So hot.I'm still gonna have to read a few of the books in two of her other series to cement the family structure/participants in my head, but man I can't wait for the next installment of The Protectors. (Which I think is Dante/Magnus. Jace/Caleb is gonna be hard to read when that one comes around, though, given what Caleb's been through.)Also, I really, really am hoping that SK does as she's hinting with an eventual MMF for Cash, Sage & Daisy. *crosses fingers* She's done MM and MMM in her series, now it's time for my favorite kind of permanent triad! (Not counting Logan's Need because, well...what happens to Sylvie.)

    You know when you meet up with a friend that you haven't seen in ages but you are so in-tune with each other, it feels like only yesterday - yeah? that is what this book was like for me.I LOVED seeing everyone again, even though with such a big family it's sometimes hard to remember everybody, their names and their stories - where's Matty when I need him, lol.Having said that, I didn't really need him - the way the author carefully slipped in the snippets needed to remember, was very clever and made me happy whilst reminiscing with them.5 big fat, they-protect-as-only-they-can, stars from me.Highly recommended.

    It was great to catch up with the whole group including Dom and Logan. Nice to see everyone moving forward with their lives either together or slowly wanting to figure out how to move on (Caleb). Like most there was a little bit of angst but it did help solidify Seth and Ronan and the kids. Moving on to Dante and Magnus (should be interesting) and simply can't wait for Caleb and Jace!!PS - the sex....DAMN

    ✨✨✨✨✨5 Protecting the Families Stars✨✨✨✨✨I seriously do not think I have ever read a more perfect 'update/wrap up' of a series such as Sloane Kennedy provides her readers with A Protectors Family Christmas! If you haven't read the series yet, you may be just a little confused, but if this short, steamy, adventurous 'update' of the series is your first book to read, you will, guaranteed, want to read the rest of them, starting with, Absolution, Salvation, Retribution, Forsaken, Vengeance, and the upcoming Atonement!Each of the installments introduces the reader to a different couple or trio of men who come together under extreme circumstances and find true love. A Protectors Family Christmas brings all of them together not only for the Holidays, but to celebrate the marriage of two of their own, Hawke and Tate. Ronan and SethSeth discovers a young sister and brother brought in by the police to the hospital. They don't speak, seem malnourished, and cling to one another. Seth feels an affinity with them and brings up the possibility of fostering them to his new husband, Ronan. They agree to start the process. Ronan to Seth“I wake up every morning thanking God for bringing you back into my life.”“I wake up every morning thanking you for not letting me walk out of it again”Hawke and TateTheir young son, Matty, finally gets to come home after being cleared by the hospital after his chemotherapy treatments. But they are also very stressed trying to plan their Christmas wedding.Mav and EliMav is very stressed about asking Eli's father's approval to marry his son.Ronan was right…Eli would say yes. And I was using Dom as an excuse…the only one really standing in the way of me finally getting everything I’d ever wanted was me. But that was going to change.Sloane Kennedy writes the words that just brings the intense passion these men feel for each other to life and the reader absorbs those words and feels the same emotions. This brilliant writer infuses such raw emotions into the story that the reader is feeling exactly what the characters are.Then WHAM! The reader is thrown down a dark hole with a horrible tragedy that occurs while Ronan and Seth are taking custody of the young sister and brother, who we now know as Jamie and Nicole.Continuing the story spotlights Ronan and Seth's struggle to provide a stable family for Jamie, Nicole, and older sister Willow.And just like that with a shared meal and all of us piled onto one couch with bowls of popcorn between us, we’d become a family.Dom and LoganThe realization of two of them loving each other so much!“When I do let you go, it will only be because there’s no life left in my fingers to hold on to you, do you hear me?”Sloane Kennedy writes a wedding for Hawke and Tate that will bring tears to your eyes! Minus the hilarity of the dog and cat chase through the wedding processional!In Ms. Kennedy's tradition, she then highlights a few teasers of potential new couples that may be brought together by fate and love. Atonement cannot come soon enough, and I believe there is so much more for Sloane Kennedy to write about and keep this series going!✨✨✨✨✨I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book✨✨✨✨✨Reviewed by Barb from Alpha Book Club

    REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCEChristmas stories are not my thing and as such I made a decision this year to avoid them as much as possible – that rule doesn’t stand however when it’s a Christmas story about my favourite men from the Protectors series that drags in children, animals and the Barretti’s and also gives us a glimpse into couples that I am sure are going to get their own stories soon enough.Nobody really features in this book – instead we get to look in on all the men and their stories merge into one. There is a real family feel to the overall story but that is something noticeable in all Sloane’s books that I have read so far. Along the way we have marriage proposals, weddings, more visits to the hospital, someone gets shot, more children are added to the mix and you can foresee at least two future stories both of which are sure to be amazing.If only love was as easy as who was going to eat the Peas and Broccoli – this is one of my favourite bits and is a conversation between Matty and Magnus – In our current and very altered world I just loved the simplicity from a child’s point of view. For fans of this series this one is a winner – I am now very much looking forward to Jace and Caleb and Magnus and Dante

    It's no secret that I love all of Sloane Kennedy's work, but these men from the Protector's series are by far my favorites. Without giving to much away, this is a much needed catch up on all of your favorite couples, plus....a hint at the books to come. Seth and Ronan-the love these two have for each other. I am so in love with this couple. And my heart still breaks for Seth and the pain he has endured in his life. Hawke, Tate and little Matty-seriously, how many times can you make me cry Sloane???? Happy tears, of course, and I loved every minute of it!Mav and Eli-Eli has come a long way, as has Mav-but he's still fighting insecurities he knows are unfounded because Eli is so in love with him, there will never be anyone else!Memphis, Tristan and Brennan-still going strong, still very much in love, and still perfect for each other.Mace, Cole and Jonas-Gawd, these three....my first book by Sloane, my first m/m/m and Gah. Mace. just....hot.And, of course, the underlying story throughout is heartbreaking, hopeful and a perfect little piece to the protector's family.I really do love these guys. If you haven't read any of these books, I highly recommend them!
