Regan: I never really knew what misery was until the day I was kidnapped and sold for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Two months later I'm at a brothel in Rio when I meet Daniel Hays. He says he's here to save me, but can I trust him? He's the only safe thing in my world, and I know it's wrong to fall in love with him, but I can't seem to help myself.
Daniel: For the last 18 months, one goal has dictated every action I've taken. I've left the army, turned paid hit man, and befriended criminals all across the globe to find my kidnapped sister. In every brothel I raid and every human trafficking truck I stop, I hope the next face I find is my sister's. In a hidden brothel in Rio, I find Regan Porter.
I should leave her behind or send her home because the last thing either of us needs right now is to get involved. But with every passing minute, I find I'm less able to let her go.
Contains mature themes.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Right from the start the hard hitting storyline grips you as the story picks up from book 1 after Reagan had been kidnapped, repeatedly raped, kidnapped again and then sold and is now in a dark basement chained up, treated like an animal and 'servicing' men. But her spirit isn't broken as she recites Zombie Movies in her head whilst things are being done to her body and somehow it's often her they are afraid of. But then one day in walks an American who has bought her for a little while and is taking her out, out to daylight and out of her Hell hole. She doesn't know if this is finally the end for her..... but she plans. Daniel has actually come to save her, and his Sister, he's gone through 18 months searching, rescuing and killing and he doesn't intend to stop until they are all back home free...... but fate has a different plan for them all.
This is an intense journey and your emotions go from euphoria to despair in a heartbeat and then laughter to tears in the next as these two damaged people find romance and love amongst the backdrop of chaos, murder, gangs, the Russian Bratva, bloodshed and destruction which somehow makes their bond unbreakable.
Writing a Review for a book you loved is so easy because Reagan and Daniel's story was all kinds of terrible, all kinds of shocking and all kinds of wonderful too. It was so well written you could picture each thrilling, chilling or romantic and tender scene and each and every character that made up this brilliant listen. The narrators did a great job with the many voices and emotions called for and it was a dual POV listen that had plenty of romance, sex, dirty talking and loving in amongst the violence.
Worth a credit? When you're in the mood for a more hard hitting love story then they don't come much better than this series dedicated to men who have somehow lost their way in life and have become, for whatever reason, Hit Men but are saved by love. Very creditworthy, the next book is already downloaded for when I next need a hit.
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
I did not read the print version. I did enjoy the audio. This is a brutal love story. The characters experience so many negative (for lack of a better term) and brutal situations .... it's a wonder they are able to stay strong.
The scene outside of the American Embassy.
I don't think so ... but I did like the performance in this story.
I would not make a movie about this book.
If you like angst ridden love stories this is the book for you. The heroine experiences so many brutal situations .... and still manages to dig deep down and stay strong in spite of everything. In the first book (which I recommend reading first) she did not seem to have the fortitude that she has in this book. I am looking forward to listening to book 3 when I finish this review. Worth a credit or a sale.
only gona write reviews of books i can finish, and love.
an emotional tailspin!
dude was popping caps in their...
when she thought she was too broken to ever feel again.
the thug in the alley
i want to listen to this story again. and again.
I can listen to this over & over, it is that good. Daniel & Reagan were made for each other following the trauma that Reagan went through Daniel helped heal her & eventually they both loved one another.
Reagan, because she was so brave through everything she went through,
The expressions of the characters, They brig the characters to life.
It made me laugh many times when Daniel would tease her to get a rise out of her & keep her from feeling down. I felt bad for what Reagan went through but she was a fighter not a loser.
It was a great listen & well worth a credit.
Just an ordinary gal who loves reading and writing romance.
Book two with Daniel and Reagan's story was unique and heartfelt. How the came together and stayed together is real. Authentic story full of laugh out scenes in some very dangerous situations!
I can't wait for the next book in the series!!!! And as usual the narration was PERFECT! I laughed...cried...cursed...and loved every minute of it!!! You gotta read this series!!!
A mother, wife, sister and good friend who enjoys the simple things in life. Country music is my preference and the beach is my escape (other then my books). LOL!
What a great story. Had a bit of everything action, sexiness, adventure and the whole love story thing.
