It was supposed to be simple. All Navy SEAL Nathan Malone had to do was rescue three young girls from a Colombian drug cartel, then allow himself to be captured just long enough to draw out a government spy. That was before his mission went disastrously wrong… and before his wife, Bella, was told that Nathan was never coming home.
Bella’s mourned her husband’s death for three long years, having no idea that he was still alive. Forced to assume a new identity, the man Nathan was is now dead. If he can get back to his wife, can he keep the secret of who he really is… even as desire threatens to consume them? And as danger threatens to tear Bella from Nathan’s arms once more?

This was a great listen. It's typical Lora, and purely enjoyable.The characters are good, story good....
The only issue I had with it at all is that it seems to follow the now very popular formula of Broken x2 = hot sex life.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Yes, it was not what I expected. It was more! When I read the summary I got the impression it would be somewhat boring. I read reviews and saw so many liked it, so I finally decided to try it. I'm glad I did.
I think it's a little like the Wicked Lovers Series by Shayla Black.
It's one that I'll enjoy again and I already got the next book in this series before I finished listening to this one.
Don't waste a credit on this one . . . and definitely don't pay $19.++ for it. The name of the series is Elite Ops so, with some romance thrown in, I was looking forward to it. What a mistake.
If you read the synopsis, you've got all the story there is. With almost 16 hours of running time in 2 parts, I couldn't make it through the first one. There was absolutely no believeable mission going on and the supposed "romance" was nothing but graphically descriptive pornography . . . page after page after page.
I can't believe that this was written by a a woman and I'm not sure what she was trying to accomplish but she failed on every measurable level. The narrator had a soft, calm voice which made it even harder to listen . . . the voice DID NOT match the words coming out of her mouth. If they put the real book in the sample, it would be a non-seller.
I really liked how strong the heroin turned out to be at the end of the novel. The story itself was interesting with plenty of twists and turns to keep you listening. I must say the sex scenes alone made the book worth reading. You could almost say it was excessive but they were so well written they didn't get boring. I didn't like how long it took for the truth to be revealed either. It made a somewhat believable story overly dramatic and irritating at times.
I've read the second book in this series and in my opinion it was even better than this one. It's next to impossible to find an extremely well written erotica novel but Lora's are far from the worst I've encountered.
I've always enjoyed Clarissa's voice. I think she struggles a bit through sex scenes and I did find myself cringe once or twice but I highly doubt I could do any better. Either way I find her pleasant to listen to and she has a way of making a story exciting.
If you're looking for a sexy escape from every day life definitely get this book.
I have been waiting for more of Lora Leigh's books to come out on audible. I cannot wait for more of this series. This is an awesome book. Lora Leigh does romance like few others can and this series fab. There are some great twists you won't see coming. I can't say too much because it would spool the story. If you like Lora Leigh you will like this book.
Woman, 33 years old, Attornay at Law, DK. In order for a book to be truly great, it must inspire, intreague and a keep me up till dawn.
I just did not like it. The language was too much and unless you are into porn and hard core male dominacne stay away!!
Great story, wonderful love story. I enjoyed listening.
Sebella and Noah great love.
Loved the narration.
She did a very good job. I had no problem disguishing between characters.
Entertaining book full of laughs, tears, "hot flashes" and suspense.
Good story line but the graphic and over the top sex acts that continuingly show up, when they don't contribute to the story line, in this book make you want to tune it out. If you stick with it, it's not a bad story overall.
I absolutely loved the story line snd the main characters. This was a very good read to me. There are a lot of sex scenes but they do not take away from the plot but enhance it. I had already read the second book in the series before I knew it was a series. Now I am ready for the remaining books.. I hope they are as good as the first two. This is strickly adult content and Noah and Bella will be in my mind for a long, long time.
