This story centered on a group of private and government security or law enforcement workers w/ varying paranormal abilities. The action-filled openin..Show More »g with a relationship conflict made for an enticing start. And the action-filled momentum continued. I enjoyed the strong heroine, Keira, and what—from my novice view—the law enforcement, tactical specifics the author included. The author seemed to know what she was talking about and added enough specificity to add flavorful layers and depth to the story. The addition of spoken Greek was another positive. I don’t understand it, but it added great realism. And the narrator seemed to do great with it; of course, I wouldn’t know if something was mis-pronounced, so…. The story was also full of witty dialogue. And it had well-developed characters and interesting side stories. More realism came from reference to some real cutting edge psyche-surgery with appropriate detail and usage. Keira is the best heroine ever, and the last, elongated action sequence of the book was SUPERB! I had ants in my pants, sitting on the edge of my seat, literally. This story might be a little bit heavier on the action than on the romance, though the author really did a great job of having them both continuously intermingled. The chemistry between Keira and Luke was amazing. The sex was romantic; no explicit terms used. And there weren’t numerous sex scenes. When they finally got together—and it wasn’t until the 2nd half of the story—it was worth the wait. The story was romantic w/o being mushy. It was a pleasure to watch Keira and Luke get to know each other better and express what they feel for each other. The one negative—very slightly negative—came near the end of the tale, with maybe 2.5 hrs left or so, when Keira reneged on a final decision thereby returning to an earlier decision. This vacillation is explained reasonably, but it got a bit tiresome. Still, it meant little in the overall story and my experience of it. Bring on more Joan Swan. And the narrator worked well for this story. Her depiction of the little boy speaking Greek was the best. Children can be hard to do, it seems, based on my experience having heard other narrator’s fail at it. An added bonus at the end is 20+ minutes of the 3rd book in this series, Rush.
