**Same story...updated cover!**
Matthew "Wolf" Steel hated flying commercial. Luckily his job as a Navy SEAL meant he didn't have to do it very often. He'd been unlucky enough to be assigned a middle seat on the cramped jet, but fortunately for him, the woman next to him was willing to switch seats with him. Hoping for a relaxing flight, Wolf was pleasantly surprised at the good conversation and sense of humor the woman had as they flew 36,000 feet over the countryside.
When Caroline boarded the plane to Virginia to move across the country for her new job she never expected to be seated next to the hottest guy she'd ever seen. She also never expected he'd be so easy to talk to. She knew he'd never be interested in talking to her if he hadn't been trapped in the seat next to her, but it was a nice way to spend a long plane ride.
Neither Wolf nor Caroline were prepared for a terrorist hijacking of their plane, but if Caroline thought that would be the last time she'd see, or need, Wolf, she'd be sorely mistaken.
**Protecting Caroline is a stand-alone love story. It's Book 1 in the SEAL of Protection Series.**
Stoker's bland, short novel consists of story sequences that never cohere into a satisfactory work. Matthew "Wolf" Steel and his team of five other Navy SEALs are traveling on a commercial airline on a break from their missions. Wolf's seatmate, chemist Caroline, detects drugs in the beverages served to the passengers; she warns Wolf, who manages to foil a plot to hijack the plane, but her actions draw the attention of the terrorists' allies on the ground. When they come after her, Wolf and his team ride to her rescue, despite their only perfunctory (but intense) previous interactions. Stoker's writing is at its best when she describes the characters' emotions for one another, but those nuggets are not enough to redeem the overall low quality of the prose, pacing, and structure.

I thought this book was super unique and interesting and was really excited for it, but half way through I got bored because everybody kept calling Caroline “plain”. I love the idea of the book, but it seemed super unrealistic. Caroline and Wolf’s relationship was weird and forced. Really annoying how Caroline insisted on calling everybody their real names instead of their nicknames because then you have to remember so many more names. The ending was rough, and predictable.
I was skeptical that this book was as good as any of the reviews said it was. But I kept reading and realized it was the prologue where the characters were introduced that had me in a lull. This story is much more than the “strong man saving the helpless woman”. Caroline is far from helpless from beginning to end. But you’d need to read this book for yourself just to see how strong she really is!
Cute and sweet
The woman might have needed rescuing but I love that her character was so kickass. An awesome twist to a stereotypical man in uniform story.
