Zavier “Cade” McCade, former Army Special Forces and creator of Custos Securities, finds himself in a situation he never thought he’d be in—he’s fallen in love with Braden Cross, the gorgeous pastry chef he’s guarding. Cade has lived his life as a protector: of his country, his family and friends, his clients, and now, the man he’s in love with. He thrives in dangerous and stressful situations. But nothing could prepare him for Braden’s decision to put himself in danger.

After a vicious attack from his stalker leaves Braden fighting for his life, Cade will stop at nothing to see the man responsible punished. Time passes, but Braden’s attacker hasn’t given up and Cade’s afraid he never will. As Cade and the most trusted members of Custos Securities track Braden’s assailant, Braden struggles to rebuild his life and re-establish the fragile trust he and Cade had worked so hard to build. Braden knows if he’s going to survive the chaos surrounding him, he’s going to have to give Cade everything he has—mind, body, and soul.

More determined than ever to hunt down the man that nearly killed the love of his life, Cade will do everything in his power to ensure that he and Braden will be able to live the life of their dreams with nothing and no one standing in their way. Meanwhile, hidden just out of their reach, an increasingly deranged stalker watches…and waits.

Protecting Braden starts off from the end of first book and continues on to tell the story of how Braden recovers from the situation he was in and how he and Cade falls in love more while navigating the danger they both face. Protecting Braden is a beautiful conclusion to the story of Braden and Cade and how they find their happily ever after.

What I loved most about this book is that what happened to Braden did not become an obstacle that forced them apart but rather it worked as a catalyst that made them closer to each other. Braden is wholly dependent on Cade and needs him to feel safe. What I liked the most is that inspite of Braden facing an ordeal nothing short of horrifying he did not let if affect his life and was determined to get his life back on track and move forward with Cade. I loved the way the author grew their relation and the way their bond deepened in the story. I loved that what Braden faced was dealt it a way which was emotional and realistic. As much as there were moments where I felt my heart in my throat, there were also moments where I was in awe of their love and made me fall in love with them more. Also noteworthy is the secondary characters. They all play important roles in the story and adds to it and makes it all the more beautiful.

Protecting Braden is yet another wonderful story by Luna David, one which will make you love the characters and make you fall in love with the beautiful love story and will make you anticipate for the next book in series.
