Title: Montana D-Force
Series: Brotherhood Protectors #3
Author: Elle James
Publisher: Twisted Page Inc.
Published Date: May 3, 2016
Genre: Romance/Military/Suspense
Page Count: 202


Medically discharged from the army, Tate “Bear” Parker, former Delta-Force soldier, now works for Brotherhood Protectors as a bodyguard. Gruff but outgoing, his in-your-face cheerful exterior hides wounds invisible from the outside. He hopes to keep those scars undercover and get on with his life and his job, with no one the wiser. 

Mia Chastain grew up in Eagle Rock, Montana. Now a successful screenwriter, she’s hit a brick wall writing a movie script about a young woman struggling to come to grips with her life in the aftermath of a brutal attack. Mia returns to her hometown to face her own demons and write the script she knows she must. A secret she’s kept buried for a very long time makes her fearful of facing her homecoming alone. When her old school friend suggests she hire a bodyguard, she jumps on the idea, determined to stay the course, with the help of a strong, ruggedly handsome guardian. 

In the performance of his protective service, the damaged soldier falls under the spell of the shy screenwriter. They forge an unlikely bond in an effort to keep her safe as the secrets of her past come back to haunt her and threaten to destroy the life she’s built.


Mia returns home after so many years to finish her current project for work. She has stayed away because she is hiding from a secret in her past. Mia was raped at a young age but never told a soul. She never saw her attacker. When she was old enough to leave, she left town in hopes of putting her hurt behind her.  Now that she is back and strange things begin to happen, she fears that maybe keeping it a secret was the worst decision. She seeks help from her friends who suggest that Bear become her bodyguard. She feels safe with Bear and trusts him. Bear worries that he will be enough. Bear was injured while serving in the Army. Like most military men, when injured they feel like less of themselves. Mia puts his mind at ease and let's him know he is more than enough. A romance blossoms between them. is is skeptical of her blossoming romance because in the past, she could never become intimate with a guy. It's like she's been waiting just for Bear because he is the guy to show her that sex doesn't equal pain. Things start to crash down around them when Mia's rapist tries to prevent her from knowing the truth. The story is full of suspense with that touch of romance that leaves you wanting more. 

I enjoyed reading this book. I think that James did a great job with it. The story concept worked and the author stayed consistent throughout. The only issue I had was toward the end. It felt almost unfinished. It went from the climatic end to Mia and Bear briefly closing up the story. I don't think every book should have an epilogue. I just wanted an ending that felt complete. 

Overall it was a great book and I could definitely see myself reading the other books in the series. 

4 out of 5 Stars
