After a heated encounter inside a London hotel room - where he was pursued by three very different women - Gideon finds himself living in a world where there's no one to trust.
Someone has taken out a hit on the hit man - but who? Could it be the man he left alive in Tampa, the woman who taught him to kill, the scorned woman he still desires, or some other unseen enemy?
The clock is ticking as Gideon struggles to find out who from his past may have ordered the hit, while attempting to outsmart the assassin who was sent to kill him - a cold-blooded killer who isn't afraid to harm any woman involved with Gideon and is determined to make his reputation off Gideon's death.
As the hunter becomes the hunted, Gideon's hedonistic lifestyle turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse. He will need to find his friends - and also depend on his enemies - to get out of the game alive.

All i can say is EJD has done it again. This was a great Part 2 to Sleeping with Strangers. I must laugh because i have the hardback book, but after listening to Sleeping with Strangers on Audible, I had to "listen" to Waking with Enemies. The narrator is fabulous. I can't wait to "listen" to more! Great Job!!! A must hear!
I listened to Sleeping with Strangers and Waking with Enemies consecutively. I must say that I loved these first two books of the series. The story was very well written and Dickey has left enough mystery to the the main character, Gideon, to make you eager to learn more in another installment. The narrator did a great job and his tone was just right for the dark subject matter. The sex scenes in the story were very hot and though they may not appeal to men, I think women will dig them and find Gideon super dangerously sexy. I was so caught up in the story that I was sad when it ended and equally chomping at the bit for the next installment.
Enjoying every listen.
I listened to this series & its entertaining. If you like murder/mysteries with a bit of drama this is a series you might like. I have read other books by Eric Jerome Dickey & his style of writing, so I decided to listen to this series. If you are a fan of his take a chance, its not boring at all.
Gideon of course, he's the man.
Entertaining male voice. Makes you visualize.
Beware of "Waking with Enemies"
I like that he found peace with his "mother". I also like the reader and the plot of the story. The sex scenes were not just unnecessary but too long. I had listen to one 15 minutes sex scene after another. Sex with this girl, sex with that girl, then sex with both girls; to which seemed too have lasted a whole hour. I pressed the 30 sec fast forward about 50 times before the sex was over. Then shortly there was more sex. Not to mention the mother was a prostitute who was graphically molesting her son and everybody else. Wait is this an erotic book series? If so, that explains the frequency of sex.
People curse because they lack the vocabulary to accurately express themselves. The same is true for writers and sex. Sex fills the space when a writer lacks the ability accurately stick to, in this case, the assassin theme.
If EJD had left out the sex scenes, this book would be cut in half.
Yes. I'm going to finish the series because I like the plot. I wish he would just lay off the sex a little. Funny thing about it is, in the first book, I think, Gideon claims that it's been a long long time since he's been with a woman, and now all of sudden he's sexing everybody. LOL
Love this guy. I'm going to seek out his other books and buy them too.
Gideon should be Idris Elba. The guy with the broken nose should be LL Cool J. Queen Scams should be Lousy Lou. Thelma should be Thandi Newton. Lola Mac should Bre Kim Kardasian and Mrs. Jones should be Kerry Washington.
Yes, the audio additional was definately a different experince and I certainly enjoyed revisiting this book.
Lola Mack. I thought Mrs. Johnson and Bruno character performances where horrible.
This was my 1st EJD book and I am officially a Fan!! This is a MUST listen! The narrorator is great and the story is great! It's full of action, drams, and sex. I Loved it!! There are 4 books in this series and I can't wait for another one!
The narrator was excellent. The love scenes were intense. Dickey has a way of pulling you into the story so much so that I didn’t want to stop listening. This was a great listen. Looking forward to the next sequel of Gideon’s life adventures.
What began as typical b-grade action-adventure took a long detour to rather tedious pornography for far too much of the second half of the book. None of it is believable or intrinsic to the plot, which becomes nothing but a thin premise for lots of sex scenes.
I will not give any spoilers but I am so fulfilled with this ending. Mr dickey did an amazing job with tying all loose ends and I applaud him for it. I am a true fan and I will give all his books a try.
