Publisher's Summary

A group of women walk into a bar....

Sounds like the start of a crude joke, right? Yeah, well, the joke's on me because I'm investigating the gorgeous one in the heels with the great body. Jensen Montgomery.  

Now, I'm treading that area between right and wrong, good and bad, where sin and honor meld to become gray. Not that I haven't been here before. Hell, I've made my career in the gray. I never hesitate going to battle when my gut tells me I'm right. And right now, my gut - among other things - is speaking loud and clear about Jen Montgomery.  

She's in a bad situation. Not just bad - deep and black and ugly.  

And I'm about to make it worse. She just doesn't know it yet.  

Contains mature themes.

Holy heck! Talk about romantic thrillers!

Audiobook: Narrators - Stephen Dexter & Lidia Dornet

I love doing a reread via audiobooks. I already loved this book, but hearing it come to live through the talent of these narrators was freaking amazing! They both did a wonderful job of the characters and both did well doing male/female voices which is where I struggle some of the time. Not so here. So glad I got this on audio!



Holy heck! Talk about your romantic thrillers! This is definitely one to check out!

Jensen and Eli will for sure be going onto my favorite heroine/hero list. I absolutely loved everything about them. Jen is fierce and independent with a bit of sass but man oh man, she’s got trouble up the wazoo. Talk about a bad situation. This is that into infinity. Eli might be the man to help her out of her troubles but he’s also carrying a boatload of his own so there’s no telling where all the crazy that’s going on around them will end.

I adored the fact that Eli was so completely dedicated to helping Jensen from pretty much the first moment they met. He’s in a precarious position himself but as someone who is quite comfortable with life’s gray areas, it’s something he may just be able to make work. If his protective instincts towards Jen wasn’t enough for me to love him, then his possessive jealousy pushed me right over and made me giddy at finding a new perfect hero.

This book starts out pretty fast and it never slows down. I couldn’t get enough of this story and found myself consuming each page voraciously, never skimming or even wanting to skim. There is no repetition and the writing is fresh and crisp with a hint of humor to balance out the drama. The steam is off the charts and by the time this couple fully consummate their relationship I’m sure my Kindle was in danger of a complete melt down. Secondary characters are freaking amazing without taking over the story and I’m now that fan that is never satisfied with the last book…I need the next one NOW!

I’m definitely recommending this to any and everyone who loves their romances with some suspense, a bit of a twist, plenty of steam, and a hero and heroine who will steal your heart.

SIMPLE.

Great listen!

Love this book - we first met Eli in Paths as an undercover FBI agent and Jenn in Athica Lane, Cam's sister. They've come together due to a "bad situation." Narrators do an excellent job.

Not The Killers

I bought this thinking it would be like the Killers. which I stumbled upon and enjoyed for its beach read mindlessness. It isn't. The second half of the book improves in terms of plot development, but its not worth a credit. A lot of the problem is the narration. Stephen Dexter is all wrong for the character and off-putting. And every time I looked at the cover art my stomach almost emptied. UGH Skin crawlingly creepy.

Story: Yea - Narration: Nay

The story was good. I especially liked the twist Ms. Asher provided on the over done wealthy, hunky dominant man saves independent but not as wealthy, beautiful or dominate woman. I’ve enjoyed several of Ms. Asher’s novels, this one was a little more difficult to get into. It is my opinion that the narrator(s) can make or break a story. In this case, the narration made the story Meh.

not my favorite


I'm so sad that I didn't love this one! The story was good but I kept losing interest in the middle of the book. I'm clearly in the minority here and usually love Brynne Asher's books. I look forward to what she does next and will still continue with this series because I'm curious about the rest of the family.

Hero’s & Bad Guys

I loved this book, had me wondering who the bad guys were going to be. Sex yes but not to graphic, thank you. Hope to find a book 2.

Great promise

I loved the idea and the start of this book. It just ended up having a very long middle…and ending.
It felt like there were a lot of things thrown into the mix and there were vague answers at times.
I guessed what would happen and though I wasn’t completely right and pleasantly surprised I was wrong, there were still a few things left hanging.
I overall liked the storyline and as looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

The narrative part of this book wasn’t great. The female did a much better job than the male seeing as how at times you couldn’t tell who was talking, but she at least made it clear with emotion. His feminine voice would pop up when it was supposed to be him or another male talking and it became very confusing.

Male narrator needs work

A good story - love Brynne Asher but she was let down by Stephen Dexter who I find has a very odd style. Lydia Dornet could have handled both parts. I won’t listen to the second book because it’s the same team. But I will read it.

I'd forgotten how good Brynne is

I listened to Brynnes 'KILLER' series and was waiting for the next book so was sidetracked.
the roller coaster ride brynne takes you on is literally the up and down of a wild ride.
just when it gets suspenseful she eases you down the ride and gives you normal family drama, then away you go again. there were red herrings thrown in everywhere and I had 2 suspects lined up for part of the plotline but nope, I didn't see that baddie coming but I had the other baddies on my radar.
even the Chicago plot I thought was a uh oh! but again it wasn't what I expected.
so in saying that it's a no brainer that the pace is fairly moving and the alpha H is gorgeous yet has a vulnerable side we discovered. this was a wonderful change having the h taking the lead and the H although important and scrumptious is almost secondary.
the steam was up there and the slow burn left me impatient.
the family drama near the end I get a feeling leads into book 2.
narrator's..just awesome
