Hide by Lara Adrian
John "Ranger" Duarte was one of the Phoenix program's deadliest operatives, a man with a dark past and a ruthless sense of justice.

HIDE by Lara Adrian
I don’t know if I’d call Lisa TSTL but the author should have written her time with John a little longer if she was going to have Lisa get all PO’d at John for not telling her about Kyle. She thinks of him as a liar and he was keeping secrets from her. AND they had only been together for 2 DAYS, after being apart for 5 years. AND they were busy killing an assassin who infiltrated his mountain, then driving fast and far, then taking a chopper to an island safe house. And what, during all this John was supposed to stop and say, “Oh, by the way Lisa I have some suspicious news about Kyle. AND on the morning of the third day when John did tell her about Kyle she goes to her room ALL day and pouts like a ten year old.” Authors try so hard to write a very short story that they write stupid crap in it. This will be my least favorite, I can see that. I did like John and Alec but I didn’t like the way Lisa was written. However, it did turn out to be an exciting story: good guys that were drug dealers and the military that were the bad guys. Go figure.
There were a couple of explicit sex scenes and between BOTH stories the F-bomb was released 89 times.
SEEK by Tina Folsom
This was definitely my favorite of the four stories BUT I can’t find any more books in this series and it’s been over a year since this was released. Wow, talk about being left hanging. Had I known there was soooo much left of the series that was unanswered I would never have started it. I mean, it ended with Ace finding Nick and Nick saying, “Come on, we’ve got a lot to discuss.” The End. Oh, Nick and Michelle got their HEA but this really was a cliffhanger. Who is Mr. Smith? What’s with all the precognitive members of Phoenix team having the same dream, only a little bit different? Together it has to mean something but how long do readers have to wait to find out what it all means.
There was 2 or 3 explicit sex scenes in this book and in BOTH books the F-bomb was let lose 89 times.
As to the narrator: Eric Dove did a marvelous job. His voices, his laughter and whispering are ways that show he knows what he’s doing. He gets better with each narration he does.
Self Proclaimed Audiobook Expert...lol.
I didn't like this set as much as the first book. I just didn't "care" about the characters and weren't too interested in the stories. The first book had that special spark that had me wanting to know what happened. This book was just "meh" yeah phoenix group, blah blah esp, blah blah explosion and blah blah find out what's going on....lol. I still want to know what the big event is about and why each guy is only getting pieces of the vision. I'll still get the next book to see what happens next because I'm a sucker for a good trainwreck.
"Hope at last?"
Aimed at mature readers, it is amazing how, even when In mortal danger, these men manage to find women ready to tag along. Why have none of these men ever crossed my path, I wonder?
Like the first two stories, these two are fraught with terror, danger and hope. The ultimate betrayal in 'Hide' was hard to believe. The heartache even more so. The skill sets, willingness to walk straight into the lion's den and the inherent danger in 'Seek' made it an exciting audiobook.
The variations on the nightmare is becoming more intriguing and one cannot help but wonder what the others see and who is on the other end of the glass of iced tea.
The surprise at the end of 'Seek' leaves you and the Phoenix with hope.
Eric G Dove always manages to capture the characters and events in a believable way.
I cannot wait for the next instalment.
