Eloise is a woman on a mission. She needs to find a date for the annual hospital ball, and fast.

 

The trouble is she's not only man-free but, after her bastard of an ex has a nasty little curse hurled her way, no human guy will touch her with a barge-pole—not after one of her dates ends up with green acne, another with a nose like Pinocchio…the list goes on.

 

Out of options, Eloise ends up at the offices of the Paranormal Protection Agency. She's not sure what to expect, but she certainly doesn't expect Jared Stone. No one expects Stone…

 

Publisher’s Note: This title has been previously released with another publisher.

Please note: This is a short erotic story in the Paranormal Protection Agency series and is intended for individuals over the age of eighteen.

~ 2 Protect and Service Stars ~

 

Protect and Service is book three in the Paranormal Protection Agency by Mina Carter. It can be read as a stand-a-lone.

 

Unfortunately, this one did not work for me. It had to do with the hero, Jared, and heroine, Eloise, not having any type of history together, before they end up meeting at the PPA headquarters. I need my hero and heroine to have a prior history together for it to be believable and work for me. I never felt any connection to our leads nor did I believe they would feel anything more then just a physical attraction.

 

Protect and Service is quick, down and dirty sex. It’s smut. The sex scenes are hot, dirty and well written, but I need more.

 

Protect and Service was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.

 

Note: Some of the books in the PPA series are short stories like this, while others are much fuller.

 

*Disclaimer: I purchased this book for my own consumption. I was not given any type of copy for a review. All thoughts, comments and ratings are my own.

Better than "Between a Rock and a Hard Place" but still not there yet
Protect and Service (Paranormal Protection Agency) - Mina Carter

A hot, short, enchanting read. Definite improvement from the last one.

Plot: Eloise was cursed by her ex, Pete. All of her boyfriends are involved in some incidents or they get an ailment or some freak habit they hadn't had before so she never gets a second date. Since the annual ball is a place where you absolutely must have a plus one or you just might lose your position as Executive Administration Manager, she goes to Paranormal Protection Agency as a last resort. Before she has a chance to speak with the boss, Iliona, she is overpowered, pressed to a wall by a large, hot as hell werewolf, Jared Stone. He seems to like her on some primal level. Iliona finally makes him move away from Eloisa. Eloisa receives him as a hired date for the hospital's charity ball. Jared is a werewolf who knows what he wants and he makes sure everyone see that.


This book is a definite level up from the previous one. This isn't just a scene anymore. Eloise comes with a background and for the most part of the story she is handling a big problem. It's certainly a short story that is very amusing and hot.

Eloise is portrayed as a short female with dark hair and large breasts. While I have nothing against large breasts, the way the author continuously uses that as a demonstration of a female's beauty (almost the same in two previous stories), makes me wonder if that is the author's fetish, desire or is she simply a great fan of a hentai ideal woman.

Also, I don't know if the author never met an eloquent man or she believes it is better for them to simply show their desire with actions but all of her male characters can't seem to say anything nice in a prolonged sentence or anything that seems romantic more than simply a combination of curse words and grunts. Her gargoyles in first two stories were as eloquent as a man who was raised by the wolves and was never near humans all of his life. The werewolf was a bit of an improvement because he could actually use verbs as well as nouns but he didn't do it too often. He mostly grunted. And cursed. And took action before he got a permission. The sentences mostly used by the main characters: Fuck. Me.

One inconsistency that I've noticed. In the first chapter, Jared's eyes are described as ice-blue eyes and later on she describes them as „eyes the colour of a warm tropical sea“ which do not resemble an ice-blue eyes if you ask me.

The author continues to use the language in a manner I really like when I want to read something that will make me laugh and amuse me enough to shake off the worries from my mind for a little while.

„He's an ass but he's the best I've got. Whatever you need, he'll get it done.“ She grinned suddenly. „Or I'll have him neutered in the morning. With a blunt spoon.“


The one thing that really bothered me was Jared's behavior towards Eloisa. He seemed to jump on her as soon as he saw her which might be alright because he's a werewolf and a womanizer if he didn't ask her to marry him right then and there. Out of the blue. A complete stranger, sure hot, but a stranger nonetheless. As if that wasn't enough, he repeated the same question the following evening in the midst and after a sexual encounter between those two. And she was inclined to say yes.

“But be warned, I’ll keep asking it until you say yes. I told you before, I’m a wolf. And we always get what we want in the end.”

All in all, erotic part of the story was great. And I mean really great. The tension, the leading on, the building need, the actual act when they got home... it was absolutely enthralling and steamy as hell. If not for that marriage proposal and so few words spoken by Jared, I just might say it is one the best erotic short stories I've read in a while.

Protect and Service (Paranormal Protection Agency)
Protect and Service - Mina Carter Protect and Service introduces us to Jared Stone, a werewolf, who at the beginning of the story is getting reamed by the boss for servicing those he's meant to be protecting. We also meet Eloise who goes to PPA for some assistance. Turns out, her vindictive ex, Pete, put a curse on her. Terrible things happen to any guy who gets a second date with her making her "un-dateable". Pete, however, has no such problem and has a date for the hospital's upcoming party. Jared gets assigned the "oh, poor baby" task of escorting her.
