Publisher's Summary

Former Navy SEAL Nixon Swagger is home. After 12 years of service and twice as many deployments, all Nix wanted was quiet. He’d sought the solace of the land he’d grown up on and found the peace he needed to silence the noise and figure out his next move. 

Nixon’s stay was supposed to be temporary. He wasn’t supposed to meet a feisty, headstrong woman who made his pulse race and set his body on fire. Falling in love hadn’t been part of his plan. Taking a government contract to stop a homegrown terrorist group hadn’t been, either, but when the organization threatens to attack Philadelphia, he had no choice but to accept.

McKenna Wilson was living. Every day was the same. Raising her two teenage siblings didn’t leave time for much else. Most days, she was okay with that. Then, she bumped into the sexy war hero and, in an instant, her world changed. She had no idea falling for Nixon would be so dangerous. Now, she was going head-to-head with the small-town’s dirty sheriff who was hell-bent on ruining Nixon and avenging a 15-year-old grudge. She’d lost her heart, but losing her life wasn’t part of the plan.

Nixon Swagger had learned a few things as a Navy SEAL - adapt, improvise, and overcome were among the many. In the middle of an inferno, so ominous even Dante wouldn’t buy a ticket, Nixon must adapt to his new surroundings and overcome multiple threats before he loses the woman he loves.

Great Romantic Suspense…Phenomenal Narration

Audiobook review: I really enjoyed this book. The story was so great and the narration was phenomenal as always with Erin Mallon & Joe Arden.

Really loved how Nixon helped with McKenna and her siblings. I really loved the connection he made with Zach. He was the man Zach needed in his life and he taught him how to work.

While Nixon and McKenna’s attraction was immediate, their relationship grew slowly. They didn’t rush into anything and both wanted to make sure her siblings were ok with their relationship. I loved how she was able to come in and help him with his team and their mission.

I’m definitely excited to continue this series and I truly hope Erin and Joe narrate the other books.

Nixon's Promise

First for me by this author.
I was pleasantly surprised, to be honest with you I wasn’t sure what to expect but I sure did enjoy these characters.
McKenna has just become guardian to her two younger teenage siblings and it isn’t an easy transition.

Nixon lives next door and fines out that his new next door neighbour is McKenna and her siblings.
I love that he takes her brother under his wing.

It did feel a little like insta-love but I am not mad at it because so much happens from the time they meet until the end of the book it’s understandable why we get that feeling.

I like that McKenna understands Nixon’s job what was great was how McKenna became an asset to the team too. I wasn’t expecting that and quiet liked it.

Narration, I love Erin’s narration she just does the voices so well she gives everyone their own sound I love it. Joe isn’t my favorite but I still enjoy his work.
Think I might have to invest in the rest of the series.

Good Plot and Great Steam

The first book in this series was fantastic! It had had just the right amount of complexity, a realistic love affair and relatable characters. The tone was also good in moving from one story’s climax as another plot was unwinding. I liked the military parts but also how well they all tried coping after leaving the teams. And the sec-whew, I loved the lead’s demand and need as well as the female lead’s making him work for it.

Great start to a series

This is the first book that I've listened to from this author and I thought it was a great start to a series. I really like the premise of former SEALS coming together to form the Gemini Group and I look forward to the rest of the series.

Tiresome

This book is reminiscent of many I listened to several years ago, but I think I’ve just matured way past them now.

This book both tries to challenge sexism, and completely reinforces sexism at the same time. It’s so conflicted. The alpha male traits are just so tiresome. The fact that he won’t ride “b*tch” or be a passenger in a car made me eye roll. Beating someone up and seeing it as a fix for being a sexual predator, rather than also bringing about actual consequences that might last. One conversation with troubled kids and all their problems are over because he’s a magic fix. The heroine is admired for her independence, yet also the hero does the domineering approach and threatening to spank her for wanting to do her own errands. I know people are into traditional gender roles and I don’t mind people being into that - but the whole book came across so contrived, and I didn’t feel the genuine alpha natural confidence. There should be calm confident and very natural dominant vibes for it to work.

The whole book was very predictable and full of the same old tropes. Didn’t feel the emotional connection, and I got really bored lots of times.

Why do all their names finish the same way? Nixon, Holden, Chasin, Jameson, Weston.

Lesson learned. Avoid this genre of books like the plague.

yay I just loved it

was so excited after reading red team, and then I discovered Nixon. it was just the right amount of angst, ops and security romance.
love the way it moved along at a good pace and the plot line was awesome.
some of Riley's stories are novellas and I don't see the price is worth the hours of listening so was glad to have a good length.
so enjoyed the narrator's they are awesome as always.
looking forward to more from Riley.
