Publisher's Summary

Beth Jamison had a rough start in life. She survived a childhood abduction, but her emotionally traumatic past still haunts her, and she suffers from anxiety and issues with intimacy. Beth doesn't know it, but the man who kidnapped her has just been released early from prison. When her brother hires McIntyre Security, Inc. to protect Beth and conduct surveillance on her kidnapper, she has no idea she has secret bodyguards keeping her safe 24/7.   

With his money and good looks, CEO Shane McIntyre has never been short on feminine company, and he's developed a reputation as a "love 'em and leave 'em" kind of guy. But everything changes when Shane meets Beth. Their mutual attraction is instant and intense, and Shane falls hard for Beth. Shane has his work cut out for him if he's going to gain her trust and get past her fears before it's too late. This alpha protector is determined to keep Beth safe, but he's also determined to make her his.

Protecting Beth

I enjoyed listening to this book. I think the narration was well done. Plenty of action, and suspense.
I was given a free audio copy and I voluntarily leave this review.

Do not fall for your client!

This should have been Shane McIntyre’s refrain, except when he meets Beth Jamison, he can’t help himself! Great bodyguard falls for client story that will keep you on your toes. Beth discovers her backbone in her journey of self discovery and falling in love. Lots of steamy moments, an overprotective brother and a stalker. Excellent narration! Looking forward to learning more about the McIntyre clan!
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

Strong start to a series

This is the first book that I have read or listen to by this author and I think it is a very strong start to a new series. Beth is an easy character to fall for and sympathize with, she has had a rough start and you really just want the best for her.
When Shane’s security company is hired to watch out for Beth, he has no idea the lure that she will have on him. While things seem to end well with Shane and Beth, I can’t help thinking and hoping that there must be more to the story. Hopefully we will get answers in the next book.

A beautifully told story

I had previously come across April by chance starting out with the story of Sam and Coop before going back to start with Vulnerable on the kindle. I have always loved the story but there is something so Captivating about the narrators voice that made this a dream to listen too. Can’t wait for the remaining books to go live in this series. In the mean time I’m off to start Tyler’s Audi books! Can’t wait!

Little secret reading.....

I really enjoyed listening to Ava Erickson , a great narrator . Pulls all the parts together.

We meet Beth and Shane. Beth who suffers with anxiety and panic attacks after a traumatic incident in childhood. Shane's company is hired to keep an eye on her, as her kidnapper is being released.
The two meet 'by accident' and the two form an instant connection. We have an alpha male protector who wants nothing more than to love and protect her. I did at times want to shake Beth, but that is me...

I loved listening and need to get the next book , to find out what happens to these two.

A perfect start

I absolutely loved this audiobook. Beth and Shane are a near perfect couple to read about. Engaging and dramatic, this book keeps you turning the pages. Although completely opposite in many ways, both Beth and Shane share a strong love of family and loyalty. Can't wait for the next one. This is the book that starts the ball rolling and you will not regret the journey.
The narrator also does an amazing job. She manages to instil emotion and humour when needed without it being over done.
This is one of my favourite series and I can't wait for thecrest to come out in audio ❤❤❤

enjoyable HFN - duet + story

Be aware this is part of a series and the plot and these characters continue into the next book. I'm not really a fan of duets or multiple books with the same characters but will still read them on occasion. I actually didn't know this was part of a duet + storyline when I started - oops. I wish this one would have been resolved in one book. I enjoyed it and think most romance readers that enjoy damaged heroine stories will love it. I will probably skim the rest of this couple for the side characters as they are more interesting at this point and I'm bored with Beth and Shane. I can't imagine what else can happen to poor poor Beth at this point.

I love love love Ava Erickson, she is my new favorite female narrator and will continue to try new authors with her narrations, but this audio could have been better with both male and female narrators.
