Grace Meredith is the CIA's most deadly assassin. Too bad she's gone off the grid and become a mercenary for hire. After the death of her daughter by a sniper's bullet, Grace can no longer stomach the demands of agency life or keep herself from blaming the only man she's ever loved. Her mind and body are fragile, and she knows she's just a step away from breaking down completely.
Gabe Brennan holds the weight of the world on his shoulders. As one of the most brilliant black ops agents the CIA has ever employed, he knows it's no one's fault but his own that his child was gunned down in cold blood. He might not have been able to save his daughter, but he's determined to save his wife. He only has to find her first.
Sexual tension crackles between Gabe and Grace from the moment they're reunited, but between the man who is hunting them, a secret that's been buried for eighty years, and a turbulent past - the odds are stacked against them.

I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I love the 007 genre and this is very 007ish to me. It does have a little difference in that Gabe is in love with Grace and not every hot female that walks by, but that makes it even better. Don't worry though because theres more team members that love to chase the women.I know I'm going to love hearing about these sexy men in the next books in this series. Theres not many loves scenes but those that are in it pack a punch. This book is packed with all kinds of action like you would expect in a Bond movie, and for me thats all kinds of good.
This is the first time I've heard NML narrate and I must say he does a fine job. I love the timbre of his voice. He does a very good job with the various characters. I'm looking foward to hearing more of his work and Audible keep him for this series!!
If you haven't figured it out from my review so far, then YES it's worth the credit. My ears were thrilled with this one.
Michael did a great job narrating/reading this book. He made the listening experience much better.
Mission impossible meets La Femme Nikita. If you like action, spy, and romance, this is a good 1st book of a series. Even though, it's a series, I think you can read it as stand alone b/c each book is base on a different agent. This book was about Grace and Gabe.
Without giving too much away, here is the gist of the story. Grace and Gabe were married to each other and worked for the CIA for a long time during undercover works. Their daughter was murdered by one of Gabe's enemy. Their marriage fell apart after that. Both left CIA. Gabe started his own agency and Grace worked as a mercenary. Gabe got Grace to join his agency and help him with a mission to save the world from being killed by a nerve agent. Through this mission, they worked out their marriage.
Is it worth a credit? Definitely.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Gabe Brennan, "Mr Yummy" Grace's ex husband tracks her down and offers her a position on his team because she's the best sniper around and he needs her help. Sparks fly immediately between them and she tries to fight it but her body has always wanted Gabe. After dismissing his advances she finally agrees to take the position when he promises to help her track down the man who killed their daughter. Grace is a badass, broken down female character I wanted to hug and high five at the same time. Not only could this woman bring down a target over a mile away but she could grapple with a grown man in hand to hand combat. At first you start to think she is super human when she is able to shut off her emotions but during several scenes you get to see her vulnerability and I loved that. When she first comes to the group Gabe recruits her into she doesn't allow herself to joke or have fun and laugh because she feels guilty that her daughter is gone but she isn't. The group really comes to depend on her when the danger begins with her sniper capabilities and she ultimately becomes the hero. I really enjoyed this book. It has lot's of action and smoking sex scenes. I'll be snapping the next book in this exciting series :)
Excellent. Well written and entertaining story line. I liked the characters and loved what they were as much as who they were. I read at least 50 Romantic Suspense novels a year and this is my favorite for 2013. Can't wait for the next one!
Really liked the narrator.He did a very good job. I'll look for more of his narrations.
it was read by a man who does a very good woman's voice.
this had romance and 007 type of story which is not easy to do. Author did a very nice job of staying with the theme of the book. Very refreshing listen after so many 50 SOG type books.
first time,and it would depend on the story he reads...I can not put my finger on what made me not fully crazy about his reading style. I think the reader did not make our hero sound as ruthless as everyone says he should have been. He did make Jack's character rich so next book should be even better.
I did listen all the way in one day
Nice lead into jack's story...I love his character. Author will have to make the tempo and read in the same vain as this one.
