Personal and professional stakes are raised as a counterterrorism expert and a terrorist assassin race against time and their enemies, toward a second chance at love. No matter how far and how fast you run, the truth is never far behind.
CIA counterterrorism expert Manuel Ramirez has spent the last three years looking for the woman he loves, who disappeared without a trace while on a postgraduate trip to France. Then, as suddenly as she disappeared, Jules Trehan turns up in a small-town Colorado hospital bed, injured in an explosion that killed her parents. Manny is shocked by the change in the woman he once knew. Kidnapped by a shadowy organization, Jules has been forced to become the very thing he's pledged his life to defeat - a terrorist assassin.
Knowing her testimony will finally bring down the organization, Manny races to get her to Washington in one piece. But just when there's a glimmer of hope of overcoming her past, Jules must pull off one last job or Manny's life will be forfeit. It's a mission she must complete…even if it means betraying the only man she has ever loved.

No, I usually like Maya Banks, not this one. Sorry but I barely got through.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Long Road Home
I love, love, love this book. It is more like MB KGI series then the Sweet series. More action, adventure and enough romance to keep you interested if you are the romantic sort.
I am unaware if this is a book in a series. I hope so because it is a good start. If you have listened to a lot of MB books you will notice some of the phrases and terms that are familiar, but not too many. The story is a standalone. I do hope she continues with this though.
Narrator, Rebecca Estrella I have heard before. She has narrated one of my favorite series. The trick with Rebecca is that you need to set your reader to a faster speed. I find that 1.5 or 2X is the best for me.
Rebecca is able to give each character a voice. I do think she did a better job with this book than the others I've listened to. She is a narrator, not a performer. She is steady & I do think she stepped it up a notch this one.
Note: Mature themes, strong language and some violence
Credit/ $ Worthy: Yes, yes this is creditworthy and yes worth to pay cash. MB's books are usually pretty reasonable to inexpensive.
The story was pretty good. I thought I knew who the villain was going to be but I was wrong. Not as steamy as Maya's other work. More of a romantic suspense.
The relationship between the h and h was very sweet.
Anything would have made it better. If she had gotten hiccups in the middle it would have been better. It sounded like it was being read by a robot...a robot whose batteries needed changing.
No. It was just a good read story.
Save your audible money. Read this story when you have time to sit down with your Kindle. The narration took a lot of the enjoyment out of a nice story.
