An explosion in the jungles of Guatemala left Marine Zachary Johnson completely blind. While struggling to come to terms with his disability, a strange phenomenon starts to happen: whenever he stands in front of a mirror, he sees snippets of the future.
As man with a dark past, Zach is recruited by the secretive and elusive Joe Smith to help in the underground war against a clandestine faction of the government only known as Group Nine.
Zach finds himself partnered with Ella Frolic, Joe's old lover; a cold, angry woman with a chip on her shoulder. As they work together toward their end goal, Zach is able to thaw Ella, bringing out her true personality, and both find themselves caught up in a whirlwind romance neither ever expected.
As the last phase of Joe's plan falls into place, everything goes terribly wrong, and Zach ends up in the clutches of Group Nine.
Will Ella save her lover, or is she the one responsible for his capture?

I bought this book late last evening and read all the way to 97%, until, at 3:35am when I couldn’t keep my eyes open anymore.
I absolutely loved Zach but Ella took some time getting used to. Boy, she was sooo mean when Zach got to her house with Joe. I could see her having been mad at Joe when “it” first happened but, good grief, 7 years had passed and she still dwelled on it? That’s holding a grudge for a long time. And what she did to try and hurt Joe was kind of unforgivable. I wasn’t crazy about her after she did “that.”
However, with Zach, Savannah, Joe and Thomas in the story I could forget about her most of the time.
Again, there was no sexual tension in this book but Zach said a couple of things to Ella that were really super sexy, but that was all, and there was explicit sex, which could have been better with some tension involved, something that led up to it.
This started out with Zach being an assassin and I loved that he killed the man he did. BUT I was totally surprised by who had hired Zach. The people in this story all deserved killing, IMO.
There was swearing. The F-bomb was used 30 times.
As to the narrator: He was pretty good. He did whisper and laugh when the book called for it but he seemed to whisper during the entire book. His male and female voices were just OK for me. There wasn’t any emotion in his reading but I'd listen to him again. I wouldn't go out of my way to find his books but I've heard a lot worse.
