Audiobook Review: Penny’s Protector (Icehome, #10). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Penny’s Protector by Ruby Dixon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

S’bren doesn’t realize what a mess he’s stepping in when he steals me away. He just wants to resonate. Sweet, right? But his methods are all wrong and resonance doesn’t look as if it’s happening anytime soon for either of us. 

So I’m going to use this time away from the camp as an opportunity. We’re going to go exploring and not return to the beach camp until I’m good and ready. It’s one part punishment for him – being my guide – and one part adventure for me. We’ll have fun, swing from some vines in the fruit cave, and then return to ‘ICEHOME’ when we are good and ready. 

What’s not part of the plan? Falling in love. Matters of the heart are tricky when khui gets the final say. . .and mine is totally silent.

The heroine: Penny – she is one of the human females that was abducted from Earth before the ship crash landed on the Ice Planet. Penny has more curves than some of the other women, but has a sunny personality and takes things as they come. She loves to flirt, but is sort of over the fact that many of the men are basically fighting with each other over the unmated females.

The Hero(es): S’bren – Big and very awkward with a huge crush on Penny. He is of the tall horn clan and many of his clan mates treat him like he is stupid, but really he is shy and quiet. He watches Penny closely and keeps near her. He has always been the muscle in the tribe while others are more clever. This never bothered him until lately when his tribe has been interacting with the females.

The Story: Penny pities S’bren because he is awkward and latched on to her. She likes to flirt and he isn’t good at flirtation, he just comes out and says what he wants with no bones about it. She thinks he is a big goober with a big heart. Though she starts to think differently about him when he saves her and takes care of her while she recuperates.

Penny enjoys her independence, she likes hunting and being out in nature and is very easygoing. When S’bren drugs her and takes her away from camp to be alone with her because he fears she will resonate to someone else, she is angry with him but understands that did it without any malicious intent and she accepts the fact that he regrets what he did. The two decide to use their time away as an adventure and a vacation.

Like all the other books in this series, this one was told in dual points of view by dual narration. Which means the male narrator does all the voices in the chapters told in S’bren’s point of view and the female did all the voices in the chapters told in Penny’s point of view. I do like duet narration better, where the male does all the male voices and the female does all the female voices. However, Sean Crisden and Felicity Munroe do a great job and I like their voices. The story lagged a bit in the middle though. I guess I wanted a bit more conflict in the book. It did pick back up though.
