    1. Compelling, more than a little beautiful, and sad as fuck.A little clumsy in the beginning; musically measured in the middle; and nearly perfect at the end, which I found almost literally stunning.I didn't see it coming, and I'm glad, because it felt real—as real as the best of what came before.I'd have preferred not to have been in Gabriel's head at all; for it to have been purely Joey's perspective all the way through. It would have heightened the violence of the opening scenes, and rendered [...]


    2. Review completed December 13, 2012"The price of protection is simple. You have to let me touch you. Kiss you. Not every time the lights go out. Not every night of the week. But -- enough."It's kinda strange but after finishing this novella that ended at 77 % (!) I was so stunned that I felt nothing at all. I didn't shed a single tear. I guess it happens now and then that you feel the full impact of a story a day or two after you've closed the book. Anyway, I'm sitting in front of my laptop, tryi [...]


    3. God, this novella! On my favorites shelf this little gem goes.I buddy-read Protection and it’s actually pretty rare for my partners in crime and I to be unanimously impressed. But the author with the misleading penname pulled it off once again! If it’s up to me, I’d say T. Baggins is probably one of the better writers in the M/M genre, and she really deserves to be on your radar. You don’t want to know how many times I’ve heard people mention that they’re surprised or blown-away by t [...]


    4. I so, so, so liked this book.Shock the heck out of me, but I did. I typically can’t handle this kind of violence…prison non-con borders right along my hard limit. But, something about the way the author writes Gabriel makes him sympathetic despite his horrendous actions. Conflicted, lonely, uncertain, brutal - but proving that LOVE can bring out the best in anyone.Reading the relationship between Gabriel and Joey grow from force and hatred to something beautiful was painfully exquisite. And [...]


    5. How to review? Firstly I have to say this is not my normal choice of story. I much prefer my nice safe comfort reads. But saying that, this certainly kept my interest.In the begining I was unsure of this story and almost reluctant to read, but without realizing it I was half way through and totally conected to Joey and Gabe. The begining was hard to get through for me, and I disliked even hated Gabe at that time. He was a conundrum at times. One moment a champion of the underdog the next a mean [...]


    6. Gabriel MacKenna is a hard man. Sentenced to life in prison for a double murder, he is determined to be nobody's boy. He will do whatever is necessary to protect himself; no man will force him into a homosexual act, and he will yield to no one. In 1931 England, prison is a hard reality. And Gabriel will be the hardest man there.Dr. Joseph Cooper enters Wentworth Prison sentenced for a mistake. A God awful mistake. Killing a woman and her unborn baby. He walks into prison with his head held high, [...]



    7. This book does not have a happy ending in any sense, but it is an enthralling read. The historical setting of a prison in England on the brink of WWII feels wholly authentic. The two MC's are unusual, complex and captured my interest from the first moment. Gabriel managed to be a sympathetic character even through events that should have made me as a reader turn against him. The ability to engage the reader to this extent with this man is an amazing achievement for author S. A. Reid. Joey is sym [...]


    8. DNF at 65%My oh my. I'm in the minority here. But I was not even able to finish this very popular on GR novel.In the future I consider to avoid a prison theme in MM books. And if I'll pick something about a prison, then only PWP. In this case I don't need to question a plot.A melodramatic, full of cliches unrealistic prison overly drama without any historical atmosphere, with the stereotypical characters, a very predictable plot, and unappealing sex. Not for me.


    9. Well, this was sad. But also engrossing.I was hesitant going in to this, because prison romance doesn't sound like fun. The violence, the rape, and the inevitable angst are just a bit much for me. But I decided to give 'Protection' a shot, and it was pretty good.The thing that makes this book stand out is that the progression from hate to love went a direction that I haven't read before. In most of the MM non-con books I've read in which the victim falls for the aggressor, the relationship is al [...]


    10. Wow. This book was kind of amazing. I don’t really know what I expected but I certainly didn’t expect THAT. I wasn’t expecting such a heartfelt romance that brought me to tears. What a wonderful story these two men had, given their situation and where they started. They had a shaky start, to say the least. But the way their relationship progressed? *sigh* Even though Gabriel did unspeakable things to Joey in the beginning he really turned out to be a true partner for him. He was loving and [...]


    11. I was dunked in this excellently written short story and ended up feeling a great many emotions, pity, anger, dismay, despair, warmth, happiness, sad, quite a punch in such a short time. Reid writes with no frills but lots of depth and weaves in humanity, brutality, retribution, justice, morality all in one bite.Left me feeling sad but good. The ending tugs at my heart, beautiful, the ultimate.(view spoiler)[ I've gone with you as far as I can. I'll be waiting for you.(hide spoiler)]


    12. ~ ~ ~ This book is completely worthy of an exceptional review. It touched me so deeply and poignantly though, that I'm having trouble with getting my feelings on the page. Bear with me. Maybe a reread will help me see more clearly.EXCEPTIONAL~ ~ ~ Take a look at my Male/Male Romance Book Blog: attentionisarbitrary


    13. Solid 4.5 StarsI knew when I bought this book that I was going to wind up bat sh*t bonkers, after reading it. Why? Cos this story has what I call "The Human Condition" written all over it.I mean this whole book had my emotions everywhere.I was likeA few other scenes had me likeAnd the ending? OMGAWD! The ending had me likeWe've all heard, read, seen movies, even watched the news with the gory tales of what prison life is like for some. Maybe even from loved ones who have experienced it for thems [...]


    14. I read this well over a year ago and thinking about it now still punches me in the gut. I never rated it because at the time I just read, never reviewed and so having just seen it on GR decided to add my 5 stars A little late but there you go! There are any wonderful reviews out there that give this the kudos it deserves so I'm not rehashing but I will say it was a real emotional wringer and to be honest I don't think I could put myself through it a second time - but I'll never regret reading i [...]


    15. Gabriel is a brutal killer, locked up for life with no hope of parole but you can't help but have sympathy for him. I really enjoyed the prison setting, especially during the 1930/40's, it made a refreshing change. Loved Gabriel and loved this book. 5 solid stars!


    16. Bloody fucking brilliant. Heartrending.I'm bawling.Edit:And damn it, the Coda is a bloody tearjerker times 2!


    17. I have a new crush. Surprising because he is a convicted murderer, a rapist, and I'm completely in awe of him. Gabriel MaKenna is one of those men that win you over no matter the bad they do.If you enjoy dark erotica, you will enjoy this book. If you like to read unusual love stories, here it is. I highly recommend this book to those of you that can get past rape in your fiction.


    18. ^^A MUST FREAKING READ!^^4.5S.A Reid is definitely a fave author of mine, and this heartbreaking tale makes her an author to watch out for. Something Different was the first book I read by this author and I loved it so much. Protection is another winner, though both books are as different as night and day.Gabriel Mackenna is serving two life sentences, with no chance of parole. He knows he will live and die in prison. He decides he's going to rule his permanent home, because he refuses to become [...]


    19. Enjoyable well-written novella from T Baggins aka SA Reid. Set in an English prison in the 1930s, this is a the story of Irish murderer Gabriel McKenna who becomes obsessed with new inmate Dr Joey Cooper Don't neglect to read the Coda, it will destroy you.'I'm losing my mind, Joey thought, not for the first time. Maybe I'm dead. Maybe the train crashed on the journey to Findley. The person I took for Dr Pfiser was really Satan, and Wentworth is really hell.'


    20. Wow! That was not at all what I was expecting. For a story that started out so brutal, I did not expect to be rooting so hard for Gabriel and Joey. Heartbreaking, but such a good read!!


    21. Initially, I didn't give this book a rating, because I couldn't decide whether to give it one star or five. Now that I've had a day to mull this over, I'm giving it a five. Just be forewarned that it's a difficult read, thematically, and might not be to everyone's taste.This is a fascinating story. The author has clearly done some research, and the historical details are very interesting. This is a gritty environment, and there's no glossing over the realities of prison life. It's well written a [...]


    22. This was a short, touching story that had me in tears even though I could see what was going to happen. It portrayed two men finding love in the most unusual of places and circumstances. A truly riveting read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I only wished it could of been longer.


    23. Full disclosure - I only read this book because it was offered as a free review read. I am so glad I did and will look out for more of this author's work. It's a sweet, yet sad story that I really enjoyed. The writing style worked for me and I bonded with the characters. When I say sweet, I don't mean gushy, sugary or lovey-dovey. It's set in a 1930's prison and has all the things you expect from such - violence, hatred, rape But the underlying story is one of grudging respect that becomes much [...]


    24. 5 stars, right up to just before the ending and thenft.but I can't give it less than 5 stars because the rest of the book is simply stellar. Could have easily been one of my fave books ever. I guess the ending is realistic, but that didn't mean I liked it.Be aware, there is no hea here. If you're like me, it may help to know that before you start. There is an epilogue here which may help you, but which didn't help me in the slightest lol.Still I cannot stress enough how awesome this book is. I c [...]


    25. What a great story. Aside from the initial "bad" scene, and a few gory moments here and there, it was a beautiful story. I am not a huge fan of historical books, and I'm saddened to say that I consider a book of this time period as historical. Nevertheless, this was so well written that I was sucked right into the lives of Gabe and Joey. With Gabe being in for two life sentences, I had a hard time believing this could end well right from the get go. I loved these two together though and was root [...]


    26. Outstanding. And I am now undoubtedly forever tainted by the crème de la crème of short prison m/m romances ever written.An incomparable masterpiece for engaging and pacing a sensually-complex- narrative in approximately 120 pages or less. And a story that releases the reader eternally ruined for any and all others left in its wake.


    27. I nearly always enjoy prison stories, not sure exactly why, but there it is. And this was no exception. Such a sad but awesome story but do take the time to read the Coda at the end! That's really changed my perception of it so much and brought it back up to a five for me after the sad end.


    28. I wanted to like this book more than I did. Weird right? Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t dislike it, in fact I enjoyed it. But it needed more. Here is the thing about starting a romance with a rape: you have got to sell the hell out of the believability angle. There has been only two authors that have been successful with this sale. Voinov and Marquesate. And they had to collaborate to do it; in a 409 page book. Protection was 122 pages, it could have used a few more to expand the progression o [...]


    29. I did not hate this book, but it could have been so much more. I am intrigued by prison stories as they create an atypical environment for relationships to develop. The idea of men becoming your 'girl' and protection is fascinating. Protection definitely explored this universe. This is a bittersweet story and the main characters Gab and Joey were compelling. I especially liked Gab, even though he was a double lifer, he had many redeeming qualities, charisma, and inner conflict.Where this book (r [...]
