Publisher's Summary

She’s a woman on the run and desperate to avoid her hot, nosy detective neighbor.

Artist Savannah Cole has secrets. She can never stay anywhere too long or let anyone get too close. An obsessed stalker has her in his sights, and to protect her family, she can never go home, never share her art, and never fall in love.

But when she plays her music a little too loud, she collides with her good-looking, inquisitive, and far-too-hot neighbor, Detective Hunter Morgan. A man who makes her want things she can never have.

After an injury ended his military career with Delta Force, Hunt Morgan found his place at the San Francisco Police Department. He may not have been there for the men of his team, but now he does his bit to keep his city safe. But his mysterious new neighbor is disturbing his peace. One look at the beautiful blonde and Hunt knows she has secrets….

When a spate of mysterious attacks threaten Savannah’s life, Hunt steps in. He’ll keep her safe and he’s not going to let her run again.

As Savannah’s stalker closes in, she finds herself with her own private protector. Even with his brothers and friends at Norcross Security at his back, she’s terrified he’ll become the next target. But Hunt isn’t afraid of her deadly stalker, because he knows the hardest challenge will be convincing Savannah to take the biggest risk and stay.

Narrators bring this story to life beautifully!

Savannah Cole is an artist with a dangerous stalker after her. She has had to hide her talent, because she knows that her stalker will be able to find her again if she ever exhibits her art in public again. Detective Hunter Morgan is her next-door neighbor, and he believes she is hiding something, but he can’t figure out what it is. When he finally does actually meet her, he is intrigued enough to want to find out more, but she is so used to hiding herself, that she is afraid to open up to anyone.
There are some interesting aspects of this story. Hunt has a very strong support system, while Savannah has no support system. She has had to abandon her family and best friend to keep them out of the crosshairs of her stalker. She moves around a lot as a way of staying ahead of this horrid man. He likes to murder people who look like Savannah, and he is creepy in a very obsessive way. Hunt is pretty sure he can keep her safe, but he doesn’t realize that he needs to keep himself safe as well.

The story flows well, and the pace is fast. There is action at times, which is interspersed with good conversations at other times. The tension ratchets up toward the end; nevertheless, there is a distant feeling of tension throughout the entire story. There is a strong sense of camaraderie among Hunt’s friends, and his friends accept Savannah into their ‘family’ readily. She has been without a support system for so long, that she really blossoms under their care and attention. She gets a whole lot stronger as the story progresses, and it is awesome to observe. Anna Hackett always does an amazing job with her contemporary stories (and all of her stories, for that matter!).

Stella Bloom and Teddy Hamilton do an amazing job with the voice narration for this story. Their voices really bring it to life in a realistic way, which takes it to the next level from just reading it. Reading it is enjoyable as well but listening to it as it is told by professional narrators adds something special to the experience. Well done!!

On the run

Savannah Cole both annoys and intrigues her neighbor, Hunter Morgan. The mystery that is Savannah will take all of Hunt's detective skills, but what a ride it is.

Love the chemistry and realness of the characters. Hate the bad guy and what had to happen in order for these two to meet, but super happy to read all about how they make it through.

Can’t wait to hear more!!

I really enjoyed this series! It was great to see see Hunt find his special someone. Savannah is very independent and self sacrificing but learns the valuable lesson that everyone needs help sometimes. I love how they encourage one another’s individuality. I also like how easily friendships are developed and cultivated. Stella Bloom and Teddy Hamilton were fantastic narrators as always and made me envision the characters as if I was standing right next to them.

Entertaining!

This is the seventh book in the Norcross Security series, a Romantic Suspense. I love this series! Savannah and Hunter's story is entertaining, fast-paced, and suspenseful, filled with danger, action, and twists and turns. They are two amazing characters. Hunter is very handsome and protective. Savannah is smart and strong. She is on the run from her past, and from a deadly stalker. The supporting characters are great. The Norcross Security team is amazing. Stella Bloom and Teddy Hamilton did an excellent job with the narration. I enjoyed it. This is a great addition to the series. Now, I am looking forward to listening to The Medic, the next book in the series.

The artist next door…

Although not quite a member of Norcross Security, SFPD Detective Hunter Morgan is affiliated with the tram…after all, his brother works for them and his cousin is engaged to Vander Norcross. Hunter’s new neighbor, artist Savannah Cole, is intriguing…and has secrets. Secrets that can be fatal for those she loves. None of that stops Hunt from pursuing Savannah…and he pulls in the Norcross team to protect her. Lots of action and great camaraderie. Looking forward to the next book.

So good!

I've read all the books in this series and so, I was extremely excited to read Hunt's book. Hunt is a detective and he meets Savannah when he goes over to her connecting townhouse to complain about the music. The chemistry is electric and flies off the page. I also loved how sassy, strong and brave Savannah is and this book, as usual, is a wonderful mix of romance, steam and action (Savannah has a stalker that she is trying to hide from). All the Norcross men and their women have scenes and I absolutely loved learning more about Hunt's brothers. The best part is that we now get to see the Morgan brothers get their HEA! Bring it on!

For my second time with this story, I listened to the audiobook and my goodness, Stella Bloom and Teddy Hamilton can read anything to me and I would love them. Their ability to master multiple voices and to infuse their voices with emotion make them 2 of the best narrators. Pair this with an excellent story and this was a fantastic auditory experience!
