Found a story on Kindle Unlimited that was well written! The story grabs you with a fumbling hero who really is anything but a fumbling hero and a heroine who doesn’t need a man to take care of her. An interesting story after so many duds on Kindle Unlimited.
While Protecting What is Mine is listed as a standalone story, it really has threads from some of the authors other standalone stories. This isn’t the first and sometimes I felt a little lost not knowing the characters that were introduced all at once. It left my head spinning. But that is only a minor part of the story that got me confused. I will list the books below that I feel you should read before this one, but there are mostly a guess as I haven’t read them myself.
Lincoln Reed didn’t become the Fire Chief for getting tongue-tied, but that’s what happens when he meets flight trauma surgeon Mackenzie O’Neil on the scene of a bad accident. Injured himself, he calls upon her good nature to get him home…only to find out their are neighbors. Linc is known as the local player who leaves women happy, but never commits more to them.
Mackenzie is only filling in for a short time for a doctor. Having just left the service, she is looking to change her life when she realized she only ever felt anything when the adrenaline was rushing to save a patient. But small down doctor isn’t at all what she expected. Most of her patients on a trauma flight aren’t expected to give a family medical history before she saves them. Expected to know the patient while also treating them and the illness they don’t tell you about is changing her world in ways she is not sure she is ready.
Linc and Mac show up to all the same family gatherings as if pulled together, but his charm and her badassery give them both what they need in each other. Linc is protective, Mac is no wilting flower. Mac doesn’t know what love looks like, but Mac has all the family examples needed to fall in love with this woman. Finding peace in each other is what they both need and want, but are too stubborn to find.
Circumstances kick these two in the rump and they learn that maybe their view of their world has been viewed with glasses not for their prescripted life. Fighting for what you want may mean overcoming a past that can’t seem to let go.
