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 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.

Eli & Jen

Who knew that white collar crime could be a thriller!? Ahhh. Elijah Petit. Loved him in Vines. I’m so happy we are able to get his story! And to actually get the Montgomery’s? Starting with Jensen? This just makes me so happy!!! I hung on every word of this book. I honestly tried to drag it out so that it would last longer. It’s a must read/listen - must own!

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.

Potential…

The premise is good, with the usual hurried up hook-up/romance. I guessed the culprit correctly at the start, but appreciated the twists and turns. References to other story lines let me know I was reading this out of order.
The female narrator was superb. Her male voice was so much better than the male narrator’s own voice! His attempt to speak as the female lead…lord have mercy! He sounded like a drag queen. If there is a followup about the youngest sister, I won’t be able to listen.
Listen on speed 1.3 or 1.5 and the male narrator sounds a little better.

Not a good male narrator.

The story of this book was really good. The storyline pulled you along just like it should. The only thing I didn’t like was the male narrator. He started out okay but as the book went along he was so whiny sounding and over feminine when reading the male parts. It really made it hard to finish the book.

Outstanding

Loved this book. I started it, hoping to read for an hour, and instead I read all night. The characters are intriguing including a hot alpha FBI man and a CFO corporate lady who is being targeted. I was caught off guard by the complete reveal of who was responsible for all the trouble and why they did it. I suspected one but the other was a total surprise. The audible was performed beautifully, perfectly. Highly recommend. I hope there is a book two.
