4 Heart Review by Ashley
Mine to Protect was my first book by Kennedy L. Mitchell and I devoured it! From the first page I knew this was going to be a twisted ride and the danger was always close by. Cas and Alta's journey was dark and full of loss. But there was also hope and possibility laced throughout all the mayhem.
There was something about Alta that made me root for her. It was in her quirks and her un-routine. Her perceptive mind and caution. How she liked animals more than people. And with very good reason after what had happened to her. But there was something about Cas that caught her off guard and not in a bad way. In a way that made her unable to look away. She was drawn to the mountain of a man, something in him called to her and made her feel safe.
But Cas wasn't without his own demons. He had lived a hard life and it shaped him. Made him bitter, hard, cold. Except with Alta. There was something about her that brought out his tender side. He wanted to hold her and protect her but in the same breath ravage her. And when the threat that brought him to town in the first place shows up at Alta's door, it was all he could do not to lock her away for her own safety.
This book was crazy intense. The build was gradual and it was all leading up to the big reveal of who was behind the murders. And when the final twist played out- whoa! I didn't see that coming at all. I was as blindsided as everyone else at whodunit. Kennedy L. Mitchell got me good with Mine to Protect. It was a non-stop thrill ride that had my heart racing.
