Publisher's Summary

Seventeen years of buried secrets and a divorce stood between them.

It started with her estranged father's murder. The last thing LA detective Gabby Woodward needed was the custody of her entitled half-brother. She was jaded and overworked. A nurturing soul she was not. And he was a reminder of him. Her ex-husband. The man who crushed her heart and trampled on her love. 

Ex-mercenary Declan Roarke had hit rock bottom. His new assignment mentoring teen actors was the gateway to hell. And the last thing he needed was to be near his ex-wife. The woman who trampled on their vows and ruined his ability to trust. 

Working together exposes feelings for each other that never died. It also uncovers the conspiracy that tore them apart. Lies. Murder. Plot twist. Welcome to Hollywood. 

The Ex Assignment is book one of the Rogue Protectors series, but it can be heard as a stand-alone.

sappy

Story line was ok but it was pretty sappy. I'm ok with romances but could've done without the very detailed sex scenes and the much overused F word.

Need a better narrator

I really like the story but the male narrator was terrible. He can’t do different characters. It made it hard to finish the story.

Fantastic Story & Awesome Narrations

I am always skeptical when it comes to audiobooks but this one... this one was a WINNER! It is an absolute fantastic story and the narrators did it justice.

The narration by Emma (aka Gabby) was particularly brilliant in conveying Gabby's emotions as well as (when needed) voices of other characters in the story.

I have been a fan of author Victoria Paige's books for a long while and yes, have read this book but that didn't spoil the audio version for me. I enjoyed it thoroughly - the feisty-ness of Gabby and the fierce, JP protectiveness of Declan held my interest once again from start to finish.

Brilliant work by Victoria Paige and both Emma Wilder & Rock Engle as narrators. I can't wait for the next audiobook by this author!!

What a book!

This story takes you from love, Hollywood,
marriage, kidnapping, betrayal, lies, murder.
It takes a murder to bring out the truth,
get ready!

Great story

Thanks for an intriguing story! Love the characters but need a little more depth to some of the outlier characters. Keep writing, your work is great.

A little bit of everything

This book really does have a lil of everything. And it definitely keeps you wanting more. The only problem is the female narration. She was too breathy and desperate sounding.

DNF

Too many twists and turns immediately with too many characters whose s voices all sound the same. I couldn’t keep track of who was doing what and who was saying what.

I Love Plot Twists

Listening to this was like reading three boos at once. I respect any author who can keep so much going in a book and make it work.
There truest aren’t that many live able characters in this story. Having said that, I enjoyed getting to know them. I remained interested in what was going to happen to each of them and I cared about them. I will recommend this boo to others and I am going to go listen to the next one in the series.

Happy Listening

Heroone's a bit whiney but great story

I found the heroine to be whiney, rather than female strength it came across like compulsive complaining. The over all story was really good but somehow got lost a bit in translation. This could also have been because of the actors/narrators.

way too convoluted and difficult to keep track

this story has more twists and turns than a Helter skelter. it was hard to keep track of characters and who was mad at who and why. I gave up about half way through when I realised there was 5 hours left.

An action packed listen

Not read/listened to anything by this author before, so didn’t know what to expect.
This was an action packed, fast paced listen.
Lots of plot twists and turns, intrigue, suspense, drama and hot sex scenes.
It was very well narrated. I’ve encountered both these narrators before, and they seem to do a great job every time in bringing the story and characters to life. 👍
However, I did get a bit confused by all the characters and stuff going on to begin with, and did think I must have missed bits, so ended up going back to listen again. I hadn’t it was just like that 🤔
I also thought that it was a little unbelievable with just about every conceivable scenario thrown into one story. All that aside, it was still enjoyable and worth the listen.
I would still recommend 👍

Great listen

Great listen, no needless narrative, the story just kept moving along. Loved all the characters, except those I wasn’t supposed to of course. The narrators were great too and sounded like the characters as I imagined them.

awesome mystery.

first time read of this author and I really enjoyed the plotline.
there was a lot of magical bed hopping and you had to keep alert as the shaping and background of the story was a lot.
it unfolded really well and you can see where book 2 is leading.
loved the narrator's Emma's voices are awesome. and I enjoy Rock's tone and inflections
looking forward to book two
