Ex-DEA agent Jason Anderson is trying to rebuild his life after being held prisoner by a sadistic drug cartel. With a little help from his friends, Logan Wright and Jared Monroe, he's starting a new business and moving forward. He only thinks about the past during the long, dark nights. It's then that he feels most alone.
Brinley Snow has moved into her dream home. It's everything she's wanted and more, although she faces a mountain of renovation work. Luckily, it came with the bonus of a sexier-than-sin neighbor. One sultry summer night, Brinley gathers up her courage and asks Jason to join her for dinner. They're instantly attracted to one another, but the evening quickly goes downhill when she ends up in the interrogation room of the local police.
An unknown dead man had her address clutched in his hand. The authorities - and Jason - think she's the key to finding a cold-blooded murderer. With a first date like that, Brinley's not sure she'll survive a second. Then again she's never met anyone like Jason. He's not the typical boy next door. He's all man. And with a little luck, he could become all hers. They just have to stay alive long enough to catch a killer.

Self Proclaimed Audiobook Expert...lol.
I liked Brinley and Jason. I loved that Jason could sing...lol. I appreciated the fact that they didn't do stupid shit. They didn't have all that angst stuff either. I liked that Brinley put all her issues out there for Jason to see. While Jason had his own issues he laid them out even though he still had to deal with them. The suspense part was good. I did feel as if I missed something. The other two guys on Jason's team had stories and the way they and their families were mentioned made me feel like this wasn't book 1 of the series.
Liked the story and would totally read West's story if it comes.
story - 2.75
At least 5 different reviewers said one thing or another about “hot sex,” and they are so wrong, as far as I’m concerned. At 36%, page 101, Jason and Brinley had been with each other since almost the very first page and there hasn’t been even a thought of a kiss, much less any kind of desire. At 38% the word arousal was used and then they had sex. How boring is that?
I did manage to finish the book. After they had sex there were still no thoughts of wanting or desire then they had sex again. It was ridiculous and I can’t see myself reading this author again.
AND it was so obvious who the bad guy was from the beginning. There were a few suspects but he stuck out like a sore thumb.
I did like Jason’s friends, Logan and Jared, and I liked his brothers, West and Travis and his parents, Peter and Marie. Nice friends and family but a really boring hero and heroine. I have no idea why they fell in love, the author showed no chemistry between the two at all. Telling each other about your family and all your secrets does mean you’ll fall in love but that’s what this author wants you to believe.
There was sex and swearing and the F-bomb was used 18 times.
As to the narrator: Lance Greenfield was just ok. The females spoke with little too much masculinity and he reads without emotion. He neither laughed nor whispered when the book called for it.
Damsel in Danger is the first book in the Danger Incorporated series by Olivia Jaymes. It is a great start to the series. She introduces a lot of characters and settings that are important not only in this book, but the rest of the series as well. It never feels like exposition though. That's not easy to do. The H and h are both likable and make you root for their HEA (which of course they get). No cliffhanger.
Narration by Lance Greenfield is well done for the most part. His deep voice lends itself very well for the male roles. He does seem to have some difficulty portraying the female but not enough to make it disruptive to the story. He did sound as though he may have had a cold at times. This is the first book I have heard him narrate.
I love romances! Historical, Westerns, suspense, military/security, paranormal (werewolves, psychic, angels & demons).
Story was great, the narrator not so much. I mean, he read it well, he just didn't use voices & I couldn't always tell who was speaking just from listening.
I would recommend this book wow, wow!!! I loved every minute I devoted to it, the characters were superb and the narrator did an amazing job bringing each and everyone of the characters to life. I can't wait to listen to more from this author.
I couldn't put this book away. The story was complex and interesting with just enough side trips to keep you guessing about the who-done-it. I highly recommend this book and will be looking for more from this author.
The narrator had such a deep voice the woman's sounded the same as the mans. The story was good but would have liked 2 narrators in this case. Strong female lead was nice to see. No whining, nice strong story.
While waiting for my next free credit, I got this, as it looked interesting. It's a good book, but the narrator sounds like the dog from the movie Up!
This book has enough twists that you find yourself second guessing 'who' on a regular basis. With a male lead who many females would like to spend some quality time with, and a female lead who doesn't play the typical 'annoying or useless' female, it was a great listen.
I would recommend this audiobook to all my friends who like mysteries with a little bit of romance. It is well narrated and the story has a good pace. I liked the narrator's tone of voice and expression. He has a nice voice, easy to listen to.
I liked the story and will definitely be looking out for the rest of the series. The mystery was good and interesting. The many twists and turns kept me entertained and had me guessing right to the end.
Both Jason and Brinley are well developed and likeable characters. They each have a detailed and interesting back story. Jason also has good friends and brothers who supported the story and I liked their teasing banter which added some humour.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
