Under the Lawman's Protection by Laura Scott

Book Description:


As a skilled SWAT team negotiator, Isaac Morrison has defused many a crisis situation. But safeguarding Leah Nichols and her young son may be his most challenging mission yet. Leah's brother—his best friend Shane—has gone missing while working undercover. Now it's up to Isaac to protect mother and child from Shane's enemies. He doesn't know whom they can trust, but he's determined to catch the gunmen threatening their lives. Isaac knows he needs his best protection skills against their formidable adversary. Because he can't risk the consequences to the little family who has stealthily claimed his heart. 

My Thoughts:
Good book!  Isaac (Ice) gets a call from an old friend saying that his sister and her son need protection.  Isaac doesn't hesitate but goes straight to Leah's house to protect her and her son until her brother can get there.  When he has to take them into hiding, the bond between mother and child tug at his heart and make him wish his life were different.  Leah wants her brother found and alive, but since his cover is blown he wants to keep them away.  She must trust Isaac to keep her and her son safe because the ones after her brother and trying to use them to get to him.
I really liked Isaac.  He is the kind of friend I would want if my family was in trouble.  As soon as he got the message from his friend, he was on the road to do what was needed.  I felt for him when we find out what his past is like but that just makes him better.  Leah was a good, strong character.  I like that her son was always first.  If she wasn't getting what she wanted, oh well, her son was safe.  The romance in this was secondary to the suspense but I have to say that I liked the ending!
Solid 4/5 for me.
