Retro Review: Brittany Cournoyer’s Personal Protectors Series
Vow of Protection
(Personal Protectors, Book 1)
Living a life of privilege isn’t always what it seems to be. While Walker has never wanted for anything material-wise, the two things he doesn’t have are his parents’ love and support. Walker tries his hardest to be the perfect son by allowing his father, the Governor, to dictate his life for him. All that changes when an awful day leads to a brutal night, causing Walker to fear for his safety and hire the only person he knows can protect him.
Peace and an easy way of living, that’s all Beckett wants after serving twelve years in the army. Working for his Uncle Rusty’s bar as a doorman and occasional bouncer, the last thing the tattooed man with the take-no-crap attitude needs is to have to save the obnoxious kid who gives him attitude at the door. After ensuring that he’ll survive, and having a not so pleasant run-in with the guy’s parents, he leaves the hospital never expecting to see him again.
Walker and Beckett come from two different worlds. Where Beckett fought for his country and now enjoys the simple life, Walker works as his father’s campaign manager and lives a life of luxury. But when Walker’s safety is threatened, and he offers Beckett a job as his bodyguard, their lives became entwined and the two men begin to find that maybe they aren’t so different after all. Soon bickering and fighting turns to friendship and something…more. The only problem is, Walker’s straight… isn’t he? And can Beckett figure out who is behind the attacks in time to save Walker?
Vow of Protection is book one in the Personal Protector series. This book contains situations for adults only and also talks about past drug use and rape.
Promise to Shield
(Personal Protectors Book 2)
Life hasn’t always been easy for Brice. With his own mother abandoning him when he was a teenager, and his father having a dangerous job, life has been lonely. That is, until his father decides he needs a bodyguard he doesn’t want. So why does he find himself noticing how attractive the broody bodyguard is? And why does he want him to stay, after all?
Staying out of sight is Carter’s specialty. It’s something he learned while in the military and something he put into play while being on the run. Staying in one spot for too long isn’t something that sets well with the surly man. Initially, keeping an eye on the young man isn’t exactly what Carter wants to do, but now something isn’t letting him leave.
Personalities clash and tempers rise with these two men, making every day they’re together more challenging than the last. As the days pass, more secrets are revealed as their feelings for each other grow stronger. But when one man’s past comes back to haunt him, each man will stop at nothing to protect the other.
Promise to Shield is Book 2 of the Personal Protectors series. It is intended for a mature audience with adult situations and language. Promise to Shield also mentions cutting and past abuse.
Oath of Valor
(Personal Protectors, Book 3)
If asked, Larry Armstrong would say that failure isn’t in his DNA, but you only have to look at his relationship with his son to know it’s a lie. Going undercover to catch the country’s worst criminals is far easier than fixing the mistakes he’s made with Brice. It didn’t help his situation any, when he unknowingly sleeps with his son’s best friend.
If asked, Elliot Pritchard would say that he has a type, and its name is Trouble. From hookups gone wrong to being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Elliot can’t catch a break. After a brutal attack nearly kills him, he finds himself staying with the last person he ever expected to—Larry.
Complicated doesn’t begin to describe the situation the two men find themselves in, and things only get harder when Elliot witnesses a violent crime and needs Larry’s expertise to keep him alive. Tempers and tension build as Larry and Elliot try to ignore the chemistry burning between them, but they’d have a better chance of finding a snowball in hell. The two men realize they could have something special if not for two important things: Brice’s feelings and a madman with Elliot in his sights.
Oath of Valor is Book 3 of the Personal Protectors series. It is intended for a mature audience with adult situations and language.

Tense, suspenseful and angst-filled with a bit of trouble and a lot of lust. A great read!
This was my first book of Brittany’s and I loved it! Such a thrilling and suspenseful read. From what I can gather this book continues on from the previous books in the series but even though I hadn’t read them, Brittany did well in re-introducing the backstory so I didn’t really feel like I missed anything (other than Brice and Carters love story, which I need to read now). This book follows Brice’s father, FBI agent Larry and Brice’s best friend Elliot as they fight their attraction for each other. Elliot hears something he wasn’t supposed to at work and is thrown into danger and his connection with Larry is tested and their lives put in danger.
I loved the tension and constant banter between Larry and Elliot and loved Elliot’s sass and sarcasm. They make a great pair and enjoyed the HEA!
This was a thrilling read and did well to set up the next book and I can’t wait for Agent Ross’s story!!
