When his best friend and fellow Navy SEAL, Evan Prescott, died in his arms on the battlefield, Logan Kincaid gave his word to watch over Evan's widow. But for two years he kept his distance...torn between honoring his solemn vow and succumbing to his secret love for his fallen comrade's wife. But when Dani Prescott desperately reaches out to Logan for the help only he can give, he rushes to her side - determined to fight for her safety as fiercely as he fights against his own buried desire.
Someone claiming to be her husband is stalking Dani and her infant daughter, making them virtually prisoners in their remote country home. Logan's elite military training and high-risk security expertise have outmatched more dangerous enemies. But the real challenge will be the burning temptation that threatens to overcome Logan whenever Dani is near... especially when she reveals her own hidden passion.

I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
This novel purports to be the first in a series. The stalker plot is solid and has medium level of conflict and tension. I like they way Owens evolves the story in that is not heavy handed in either message or foreshadowing; she also places a good deal of emphasis on developing the hero.
The novel is written for two view points: Dani (widower) and Logan. The narrator offers a solid performance. If you enjoy you romance with a touch of a thriller, then this novel is for you. Give it a read.
I enjoyed the overall story, but I have found that as I get older, I have very little patience for all the "man/woman" bullcrap...all the "OH YES! oh, wait, NO! oh touch me, oh, get away from me"...ugghh. The ridiculousness of all of that does take away from being able to really enjoy the story. I hate head games in real life & in books as well.
I'm so glad I ignored the 32 one and two star reviews and went with the 376 four and five star reviews. I loved everything about this book. I especially loved Logan. What he went through with with Lovey-Dovey was just awful. I loved Dani, too. She was so strong and sassy and funny. Loved little Regan, too. Had some great secondary characters too: Maria, Buchanan, Ken and Barbie and poor Eli. And then there was Ballard! What a creep he was.
It had some nice sensual, sexual moments that were nicely written. I would definitely read this author again.
As to the narrators: They did a spectacular job and the voices. THAT being said,
I think the whole thing was just stupid! I was exicited to hear a male and female narrator, thinking she would read the female parts and he would do the males. Umm, NO!! They just took turns reading a chapter or a few paragraphs, doing both the males and females voices. WTH was the point in that, I ask you? It wouldn't stop me from listening to two narrators again but I just don't see why they would have two narrators for one book.
Was a good story. Needed more pizzazz. Overall great narrators!!! Good listen. Overall an okay book.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I feel like I've heard this story before. There was nothing that engaged me in this story and I found myself skipping forward waiting for something to happen.
