A Small Salad & Hold the Dressing
The third book, "Montana D-Force" pretty much follows the established formula for the Brotherhood Protectors series. After being medically discharged, former Delta Force soldier "Bear" Parker finds himself wondering what's next. His life and his family have been the Army and civilian life doesn't have a big market for his skill set. But some Army connections hook him up as a bodyguard to screen writer Mia Chastain, who has returned to her childhood home in Montana to write a screenplay about the rape she endured as a teen. The plot is on the thin side and, while the two main characters are easy enough to like, they're a bit one dimensional. And then there's the nearly immediate lustful attraction between Mia and Bear and the rest, as the saying goes, is history. It's all wrapped up nice and neat and so slick it's kinda like having just a small salad for dinner. No meat, no potatoes, and no dessert. It's okay, but not very satisfying.
