US Marshal Frank Castello is on medical leave and feeling restless. While at his friends' wedding, he finds himself attracted to Sydney Peele. Problem is, the cute, sassy blonde is the photographer for the wedding. Frank hates photographers. They're a hazard to his profession, especially when he's on witness protection duty.
Sydney Peele is intrigued by the grumpy Marshal at her friend's wedding, even when the big, sexy man begrudgingly offers to take her home afterwards. Her pleasure is short lived when her home and life is literally going up in flames. Her brother had been staying at her home, and there is no sign of him anywhere. When Sydney goes into a state of frozen shock, finely honed instinct has Castello rushing her from the scene to safety at his home.
A visit to the fire scene the next day confirms his suspicions, when the firemen on the site confirm it a case of arson. As Frank and Sydney search for answers about who might've started the blaze, questions arise about her brother, also a photographer. Was he responsible for the fire? Or has he exposed his sister to something far more sinister?

So, this was pretty good but it was way too long. I did find myself skimming, trying to get to something interesting or exciting. This book didn’t really have to be 424 pages. I did like Sydney and Frank, and they did add a lot to the story but still…
I also liked seeing the Edgars brothers and their friends: Matt, Lucas, Dave, Jake and Doyle. They were fantastic characters, as was the adorable Jontae, Sydney’s BFF.
It was a good story about murder, dirty politicians, hired hitmen, sex and love. Everything you could ask for in a book, but not so much useless information was needed.
There was definitely sex in this book, very explicit sex but not erotic sex. And the F-bomb was used 10 times.
As to the narrator: Hmmm.. I guess he was ok. I mean, really, when you’re sitting in a restaurant talking about who killed a cop and what’s going to be done to take down the killer you shouldn’t be yelling about it, and Paul Boehmer did just that. His women’s voices were just ok, too. I wasn’t impressed with his narration but if I wanted to listen to a book and he was the narrator I would listen to him.
