    Romantic Suspense

    The Guardian by Anna del Mar A Wounded Warrior Novel #3 Take one plucky persistent photo journalist and plop her down on a game preserve in the Serengeti where the Game Warden is the strong alpha silent type who expects his orders to be followed and you have…a story of intrigue, poachers, science, infiltrators, undercover operations and more…and a romance both Jade AND Matthias fought for as long as they could. Jade has a background that makes trust difficult for her. She is used to working as a team member and able to take orders BUT she also does not like hearing the word “no” – especially when it infringes on her work. She thinks quickly on her feet but needs to when she finds herself in dicey situations. She and Matthias don’t hit it off well as the story begins but over time they grow on one another. The supporting characters are good and bad with some that are supposed to be good proving not to be good at all and vice versa. The story has quite a bit of action, some suspenseful moments, some camaraderie, some romance with a steamy encounter or two (or three) and ends with a bang…well the bang is near the end anyway ;) I enjoyed the book but had trouble relating to Jade and Matthias as easily as I did to the main characters of the first two books in this series and am not sure why. Perhaps they seemed more like superheroes than real people? Anyway, I enjoyed learning more about Africa and feel that poachers deserve their own corner in h*ll for the atrocities they perpetrate. I loved the interaction with Bibi, the elephant matriarch, though I wondered how real such an interaction might be. In fact, the reality factor related to the interactions with poachers, Chinese Cartel and in fight scenes left me thinking…really?...more times than not. Other than that – the story was a fun fast-paced read that will appeal to many. I really liked Rem and Mei and am interested in finding out what might happen to them in the future – IF they have their stories told. Thank you to NetGalley and the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars

    Loved it

    'The Guardian' by Anna del Mar is Book Three in The "Wounded Warrior" series. This is the story of Matthias Hawking and Jade Romo. I have read the other books in this series (and Loved Them!) but feel this can easily be a standalone book. Jade has come to Africa to do a possible story there. Jade is the founder of Mission Protect and a celebrity in the conservation world with her Social Media sites...even to have a show on NAT GEO. Matthias is a wounded ex-SEAL who now is the Head Game Warden for the area. Matthias doesn't want her doing any of her dangerous stories here. But when Jade gets into trouble with some poachers Matthias is in full protective mode. Another Hot Exciting Story by Ms. del Mar."My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

    An African adventure

    Combine poachers, endangered species, the plains and landscape of Africa with an ex-seal Guardian and A reporter and the reader is treated to a book that you can't put down. Enjoyed this story line and characters for an interesting tale. This is the second book I've read by this author and I will be looking for more in this series. Ebook from Net Galley and publishers with thanks. Opinions are entirely my own.
