Hello I am addicted to Audible!!! The addiction is real and I need help...more credits that is.....
Tess of course. She was awesome and had guts. She was definitely not a weak woman and I loved how she just jumped in like a special agent.
I loved the narration of this book. The inner dialogue of Tess was great and I thought the narration was done well so I could distinguish the different characters.
I was given this book in return for my honest unbiased opinion. I really did enjoy this book and was able to listen to it while I did house work making the time fly by. I am a new fan!!
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I thought Lorelei Moone did a great job of grabbing you in the beggining and keeping you entranced until the end. It was a cute short story that had all the thrill and a little romance to keep it interesting. You had to read until the end to figure out who was the good guy and who was the bad guy. You just knew that Liam had to be the good guy. Tess hung in there, doing her part in the intrigue. Enjoyed this book. Audrey Lusk is not my preferred narrator, but she always does a good job.
Your car is stuck in traffic. Suddenly a handsome man jumps into the back seat and begs you to get him to the airport so he can stop a bomb from going off. What do you do? That's the basic premise of "Man of Mystery".
Given the title, I've decided Ms Moone was consciously writing with tongue firmly in cheek. What with the British setting and all, it feels very James Bond-ish to me. However, lest I mislead you, *this* British agent does not have all the impossible, high tech gear that Q provides Bond with. What he does have is a terrorist organization to fight against, a traitor somewhere in his own organization, and a sudden, inconvenient passion for the lady whose car he has hijacked.
So this is an anti-terrorist story, a mystery, a romance, and perhaps a bit of a spoof of spy movies from the 1960s and 70s. Enjoy it for the entertainment it is.

This was a fun audio to listen to. Well written and easy to follow. LOVED the ending!
I liked the narrator, but, I'm not used to accents. With that being said can't imagine the story without the accent. Audrey Lusk for the most part was very articulate and did a wonderful job with her narration.

I was gifted a copy of this audiobook for an honest review.
This novella, which I understand is part of a larger body of works, was extremely fast paced and I have to admit, sometimes I had a hard time following the storyline. The chapters moved quickly and changed points of view just as quickly. If you weren't paying close attention, you could find yourself not knowing what was going on.
Tess meets Liam when he jumps into the back of her car and demands to be driven to the airport and insists he must go there in order to stop a terrorist attack. Tess, who up until this point, has led a rather hum drum life, does as she is told and thus begins an adventure into espionage and hot sex.
In my opinion (and of course, that is all it is) this story just moved way too fast for the listener to get a handle on it. Though Audrey Lusk did well narrating, I still found it challenging to follow the arc of the story. I think the author was trying to cram too much in not enough space. Kind of like the creative writer professor telling their student "ok, you have to write a story which must include this, this and this and it has to be this many words or less."
It's a quick listen, just make sure you pay attention!

The story is complied of three shorter stories. It has this couple going on one heck of a suspense ride.
I would say Tess. She has a spine of steel.
I enjoyed the story however the performance was lacking in : The characters weren't expressed as how I would have liked.
One night in Liams Arms.

I strive to give unflinchingly objective detailed reviews so you don't need to waste your time and money, unnecessarily, on mediocre titles.
This is a compilation of three novellas. I wish they had trimmed the end credits off until the last chapter!
This would have been a great full length novel. It had well thought out action, mystery and attraction between two people who started as strangers. It wasn't just lust, they genuinely liked each other and saw a better future if the other one was in it.
Having a longer view of the characters and would have made this a wonderful book, the story contained so much courage, detail and imagination that it rivaled a thriller/suspense novel. The sex wasn't gratuitous nor terribly graphic. It made the connection between these two more real.

This audiobook is made up of three short novellas that comprise the complete romantic suspense story of Tess and Liam, from their unconventional meeting through their harrowing adventure to thwart a major terrorist plot in the UK, on to their eventual discovery of their love for each other.
Man of Mystery 1 introduces the reader to the main characters, Tess and Liam, as Liam jumps into the backseat of Tess’ car as she is stuck in London traffic on her way home from her disappointing job. Liam, a counter-terrorism agent is being followed and is trying to lose his tail and get to Heathrow Airport to meet up with the rest of his team and stop a terrorist plot from being carried out.
In Man of Mystery 2 Tess is kidnapped by the terrorist group and Liam must somehow rescue her. He is becoming more enamored with her and yet he realizes that his involvement with her is what has put her in the hands of the terrorists and he feels that once he rescues her he must end their relationship to keep her safe.
Man of Mystery 3 reveals the terrorist plot and turns the tables, Tess must now save Liam from the terrorist’s sinister plans. She must also convince Liam that he needs her in his life as much as she needs him.
Each novella is approximately an hour long and they mesh together seamlessly, with well- written storylines and interesting characters. Each novella contains just the right amounts of humor, mystery, and sexual tension between the characters to keep the listener interested from beginning to end. The narrator does a good job of defining the characters personalities with her voice and is very pleasant to listen to. If you love romantic suspense you will definitely enjoy Man of Mystery.
"Quirky romantic suspense novella"
This story is a blend of suspense, wit and romance. I don't usually associate humour with suspense but somehow Lorelei Moone has made it happen. The story comes in three sections and ties up in a pretty bow at the end. There are a few moments when what is happening feels far-fetched but for the most part it was entertaining with the quintessential HEA.
