**********

Sworn to protect by Katie Reus is a quick read that leaves you wanting more.  This captivating story was written in a way that even though the timeline was short, it wasn't rushed.  I thought it genius how she developed the backstory so well that the reader got all the details needed.  Some authors forget that to make a good story great, giving enough details for the imagination is key.  

Quinn and Athena dated a few months prior to us meeting them.  Their breakup was due to fear.  An emotion that seems to end a lot of relationships.  People have a fear to commit their lives to another not realizing that that may be the person they were meant to be with.  In this case it was true.  Neither Quinn nor Athena were able to get over each other.  Fate decided they needed anther chance.  However, the relationship might be taken away from them by someone from Quinn's past.  
While he was on the police force, he discovered that his boss Glenn was avoiding his wife.  He saved her life and had Glenn locked away for 6 years.  Working for a security firm after leaving the force he uses every thing at his disposal to keep Athena safe after she was threatened.  Gotten wants to get back at Quinn.  Will he succeed at taking away the only thing that matters to Quinn?  


I was unable to put this book down.  It was a quick read that went by even faster because it was so captivating.  I truly loved this book and regimens it to everyone.  This author has just made it to my favorite authors list.
