Beacon news reporter Lindsey Fox is on the verge of breaking a huge story of political corruption that will make her career and make her famous journalist parents proud - or she could be thrown in jail and fired. It really could go either way.
Her recent streak of bad luck continues when Lindsey finds herself facing a bogus contempt charge - and attorney Ben Gillespie is appointed to get her out of the slammer. They once had a bad date of epic proportions - stilted conversation, food poisoning, burglary, towed car. Then there was the incident with the pepper spray. Lindsey never believed she'd see the sexy lawyer again.
Ben can totally believe that Lindsey is behind bars. The woman is trouble. Now he has to get his new client out of jail, keep her out of the grasp of a crazed bike messenger and a shady P.I., help her save her job, and convince her to put down the pepper spray and give him another chance.

I really enjoyed this audiobook. It was very different than what I'm used to but It held my attention from beginning to end. It was very suspenseful and full of twists and turns. There was mystery, drama, action, suspense, danger, and a bit of romance. The characters were well developed and the story moved at a good pace.
The narrator did a good job bringing the story to life. There were a lot of ups and downs in this story and Denice portrayed them well.
The main characters are a journalist and a lawyer. There is quite a bit of friction and conflict between them but they find themselves involved in a pretty dangerous situation.
I'm looking forward to book 2!

I am addicted to books. Nothing makes me happier than crawling inside a good book.
This was a good story it just wasn't for me. I've loved other books by this author so I was surprised I had trouble getting into this book. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
Ellie Ashe and Denice Stradling are both very talented. The story was gripping and had some unexpected twists and humorous moments. The romance in the book was an added plus. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher. This story does not end in a cliffhanger but with a happy ending.
I would definitely listen to this book again.
This story is fun! Some times I feel a little out of it and don't want ANYTHING to do with mystery. Other times, I want it like chocolate ice cream. And A LOT of it. This story grabbed my attention with the blurb. The characters are well developed.
I must say that though the narrator and the audio were fantastic, and don't hold me to this, because I don't even know how to say it. Something fell short for me. But feeling pushed aside, I really liked this book.
No, I'd say I would prefer to listen to it er a few days.
I almost thought I wouldn't have finished listening in time. My family was in the middle of house-hunting, we were all packing our stuff. So, my mind was not fully focused on what I was listening to. But I hopped right back into it a few days ago, started over and listened to the parts I needed more detail from.
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Ellie Ashe. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
Love all things romance but willing to take the chance on something else.
Riveting, Enjoyable, and Suspenseful
This was my first book which Ms. Stradling has narrated. I enjoyed listening to her but couldn't associate her voice with the main character, Lindsey Fox. Her voice didn't fit with someone that's supposed to be young. But that didn't stop me from enjoying having Ms. Stradling read to me. I liked the fact that she didn't attempt making a man's voice by deepening her tone. It would have sounded a little weird if she did.
I wouldn't say that I had any extreme reactions but it did have me chuckling every once in awhile. I enjoyed the mystery and suspense which made it hard to stop the book when it came time to get some work done.
This story made my drives to and from work more enjoyable. Also helped when I had errands to run. I can take or leave mysteries but this author did a great job of grabbing my attention and left me wanting more. The romance didn't overtake the mystery that got Lyndsey in trouble in the first place. Ben's character was believable - the author didn't make him out to be a pompous lawyer. He also comes to be impressed with how Lyndsey handles her job. Their relationship is secondary to what actually brought these two together. This audiobook made me a fan of this author's work. Can't wait to see if this series continues.
I voluntarily reviewed an audio version of this book.
I loved this book. The protagonist Lindsey is being stalked and no one believes her. Ben witnesses her attacks and finally she has someone to believe her, but that doesn't help. She is ridiculed by her colleagues and her boss. All of this is happening, because she is getting too close to a story.
I love the layers Ellie Ashe brings to the characters. Lindsey is doing her best to live up to her renowned parents, but she is doing it in secret. She doesn't advertise that her mother is a world famous journalist and her father is the editor-in-chief of a major Los Angeles newspaper. I respect her for that.
I also love how Ben is on a journey of self discovery. He's trying to figure out if he wants to be a corporate lawyer drone who helps insurance companies win cases or does he want to be more proactive.
One advice I would give anyone who listens to this is to make note of all the characters in this book. There are no small characters. There are a lot of moving pieces that comes to a satisfying climax.
I received this book for free for an honest review.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining story from beginning to end. It pulled me in immediately and kept my attention from start to finish.
Perfect mix of suspense, romance, mystery, action and intrigue. Bonus a HEA.
What does it take to bring down a corrupt city government.
Being a reporter can be a dangerous and sometimes deadly job.
Lindsey Fox is trying to make it on her own without relying on her famous parents reputation. Her investigating has caught the attention of certain people who don't want her digging any further. She not about to give up her digging and she doesn't shy away from situations that may get her into a bit of trouble.
What starts out as a simple investigation quickly turns into a much bigger and much more dangerous story.
While Lindsey is pursuing leads for her story, all Ben can do is keep her out of more trouble, protect her and try to help her figure out who is after her. All while trying to stay out of the way of Lindsey's favorite weapon- Pepper Spray.
Lindsey and Ben were both really likable characters. Especially Ben. He was a great guy.
This is the first Ellie Ashe book that I have read. I am looking forward to reading more of her books in the future.
Denice Stradling did a great job with the narration. This is the first time I have heard her narrate a book. Pleasant voice, easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Good character voices. She brought the characters and story to life through her narration. Very enjoyable. I would definitely listen to more books she has narrated in the future.

This is a lovely romance and mystery combination. The characters, Lindsey and Ben are very likable and real. The author does a great job at leading the reader (listener) through the twists and turns of the trouble Lindsey is facing. The character of Ben is amazingly understanding considering the hell he’s been accidentally put through by Lindsey. This is one of those audiobooks I will listen to frequently. The narration is also very good and keeps the story interesting.
I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.
This was fun to listen to from the very beginning. The narrator did a great job with all the characters. It was funny and I loved that there were so many characters. cant wait to listen to more. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
I love listening to Psychological Thrillers , and Suspenseful or Action Novels..
“A fascinating and complex murder mystery that keeps readers involved and guessing till the exciting climax.”I like a good mystery & this one kept my interest all through the book. The characters seemed real to me & fairly jumped off the pages. I was sorry when the book ended, I wanted more.
