Personal Threat is the exciting conclusion of the Protection, Inc. series by Kimberly Rose Johnson. Set during the Christmas season, this book is quite the appropriate read as our own holiday season is quickly approaching.

Having read the previous books of this series, I enjoyed reading about familiar characters and catching up with what was going on in their lives. I also enjoyed reading Sally’s own story that revolved around a threat to her adopted daughter, Emma. Repeated attempts by Emma’s biological father to snatch Emma made it clear that both Sally and Emma were under increasing danger. Police officer Dillon Brady was determined to protect them, even though Sally’s experience as a bodyguard convinced her that she really didn’t need his help. After all, she knew from previous relationships that men could not be trusted.

The plot of Personal Threat moved along at a steady pace with ample action, danger, suspense, and a developing romance to hold the interest of most readers. The relatively short book can be easily be read in one evening. I loved the family type relationship the members of the team had with each other and the way they had each other’s back. A fitting end to a good series, Personal Threat is a book I would be happy to recommend.

I voluntarily reviewed a digital copy of this book provided by Celebrate Lit. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.

Bodyguard Sally Wilson has become the target. Can she save her own life as well as her daughter’s?

Christmas is supposed to be the happiest time of the year, but when Sally’s young daughter, Emma, becomes the target of child traffickers, and the little girl’s biological father wants Sally dead, the Christmas season takes a dark turn.

Police officer, Dillon Brady, responds to a call for help at the home of his friend and Protection Inc. bodyguard, Sally Wilson. When their relationship tips beyond friendship, Dillon is determined no one will hurt Sally or her daughter again. Will his resolve be enough?

Sally is drawn to Dillon. He’s a natural with Emma and appears to care about both of them. Sally’s been fooled before by a man she believed loved her, but what if it’s an act? Can Sally learn to trust again and follow her heart, or will Dillon get relegated to the friend zone?

Every year since I signed the contract for my debut novel, a book set at Christmastime, I have made it a goal to write a Christmas book, usually a novella. This year, Personal Threat is that book.

I wrapped up the series with Personal Threat. My husband came up with the title for this one because the threat in this book is very personal for one of the Protection Inc. team members.

We first met Sally in book two of the series and it seemed only fitting she starred in a book of her own. We also get to know Dillon better in this book which for me was super fun to write. He’s played an important and growing role as the series has progressed and is one of my favorite characters in the series.
