When U.S. Navy SEAL chief Wes Skelly was sent to L.A. on assignment, he agreed to go on a blind date with beautiful single mother Brittany Evans, sister-in-law of a fellow SEAL. After all, he had been secretly in love for years, albeit with a woman who belonged to another man. So what did he have to lose?
Plenty, it turned out. Because suddenly the woman he'd thought he could never have was available. However, so was Brittany - and not only that, she was in danger. Because of him. He knew he could keep her safe. But why was he increasingly certain that he was the one in danger?

U.S. Seal Wes Skelly, who you've met in previous books, goes on a blind date with Brittany, sister-in-law to U.S. Seal Harlan "Cowboy" Jones and sister Mel. Both dread the date and it begins with Brittany putting him at ease by saying "Let's just say we're not going to be interested in each other and enjoy the night out." With the pressure off, they become friends, learn a lot about each other and work together to catch the stalker of the sister of Wes's long time crush. A lot of good romance, insight into their own characters with a mystery/thriller in the background. Reminds me of some of Jennifer Crusie/ Bob Mayer co-written books like "Don't Look Down."
I liked the book, but sometimes it dragged....also the Skully voice could of sounded more like a man than a munchkin. But good read.....good ending
Good story, as are all Suzanne Brockmann stories.
Iliana Kadushen, Renee Raudman, They have great, light voices. Hendrix's voice is a bit dire.
I've read the book umpteen times and love the story. Now I can listen to the characters. The plot line is believable, especially in this day and age of crazy people. Wes Skelly, the conflicted Navy Seal, has a compelling back story. Britney Evans, the ER RN and mother of an adopted son is pretty determined to not get involved. There are twists and turns and sub-plots as they travel their different ways but manage to end up realizing the same thing is important to both of them.
When Wes realizes Britney is in serious trouble and he races to get to her. Then she is the one to save him from the crazy fan/stalker.
She does a pretty good job of vocalizing differently for each character. I've listened to books where you have to read the paper edition to figure out who is saying what; e.g. the men all sound the same as do the women.
When Wes finally opened up about the death of his younger brother.
Good book. Get it!
It is good, but the story line is similaqr to others of her book.
It is a continuation of other books of SB with Navy Seals as hero. The story is good but the canvas is known from her other books. One does wonder if all Navy Seals are good in bed, we already know that they are intelegent and superb fithers. It is a nice story.
Naration is very good, you feel the story
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Very well written and at the end I made myself a promise to read more by this author.
I usually love to escape to Brockmann but the narrator didn't fit with the story this time. It isn't Brockmann's best, either, so the unappealing performance coupled with the slightly disappointing character development drops the score for me.
I LOVE Wes and Britt's book. to read how Wes came into his own and found his inner strength and self worth with Britt's love and help was amazing!
Retired tech writer/editor. Mensa. Pgh Steelers/ Penguins fan. Lib Dem/feminist. Grew up reading lit--M.A. English--now read mys/thrillers.
Yes because the narrator does a great job with the various voices. It's like having the whole story acted out for you.
It was wonderful when Chief Wes Skelly called for help & the SEALS mobilized to provide backup. Love this team almost as much as Trouble Shooters.
Tremendous job giving voice to various characters and making the voices unique and ring true. Especially enjoyed this narrator. And happen to be reading another Brockmann now & different narrator & really wish it wasn't.
Yes, I could have enjoyed that. But not enough time!
I worried there would be too much keeping of feelings to self so that the two main characters would work at cross purposes, but this didn't happen. Only other comment is that Brittany is SOOO nice she's almost a saint but I loved her.
