Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Eric Jerome Dickey sizzles in this rapid-fire sequel to Sleeping with Strangers, which finds international hit man Gideon waking up with his past haunting him and danger knocking at his door.

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.

    "A Sequal at its best!"

    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!

    "Hot, Steamy and Thrilling"

    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.

    "Anticipating the next book in the series..."

    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.

    What about Dion Graham’s performance did you like?

    Dion Graham's performance is AWESOME!!!, Incredible, Killer (no pun intended) etc...... He fits this part like a glove.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely.

    The story is hot as hell (where it was meant to be) and otherwise, was an excellent story line. Dickey is an incredible writer. Between the story and the narration, all I can say is Wow....just WOW!!!

    "You just never know!"
    Where does Waking with Enemies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gideon of course, he's the man.


    What does Dion Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Entertaining male voice. Makes you visualize.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Beware of "Waking with Enemies"

    Gidion because his life is so much worse then mine.


    What does Dion Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Story
    "So pornographic I had to skip entire chapters."
    What did you like best about Waking with Enemies? What did you like least?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Eric Jerome Dickey? Why or why not?

    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


    What about Dion Graham’s performance did you like?

    Love this guy. I'm going to seek out his other books and buy them too.


    Could you see Waking with Enemies being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    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.

    "Action Addiction"
    Where does Waking with Enemies rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is by far the best action mystery book I have listened to. Can't wait to start the third book in the series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The description of the scenes were so vivid, I could truly visualize myself in London's cold rain. Running through the city streets and smelling the overwhelming fragrance of the flowers.


    What about Dion Graham’s performance did you like?

    Excellent. I was never confused when the characters changed. Riveting voice. Loved Lolo's gitty spriited energy.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, I was so upset when Queen Scams was thrown over the bridge. I couldn't stop listening. I felt sad when Lola and Mrs Jones were presumed dead. I also was touched for a moment when Bruce died thinking about his son.


    Any additional comments?

    The twists in the book were excellent. I would never have thought it would have turned around with all of the characters. And I was happy to know Gideon had not let Sam off!
