The author writes excellent banter and there were more than a few laugh-out-loud moments in the verbal battles between Ginger and Derek. Pretty good romantic suspense from a new (newish?) author I'll definitely read again.
I rated the performance one star. The narrator sounds muddy, mushy-mouthed, unprepared, and inexperienced. I suppose it's possible that this is another narrator using an alias for the naughty stuff, but she sounds very amateurish to my ear. Ginger and her sister Willa have just arrived in Chicago from Nashville. They should have an accent. And they do in a few passages, but mostly not. Actually all characters sound exactly the same regardless of gender, age, agency, or disappearing accent/no accent. Derek in the book is desirable, hot and dominant. Derek in the audio is a cypher. Overall, a disservice to a book I enjoyed.
I am a huge fan of Tessa Bailey and I loved this book! Sweet story with suspenseful moments. I was not a fan of the narrator. Narrator's voice was..Show More » older, extremely nasal, and she seemed to run out of breath. I feel bad for Tessa because the narrator didn't do her book justice.

When Brent confronts Hayden, she is surprised but does not deny it. She leaves him because he believed the evidence instead of trusting her. And then she does something unbelievable.
But I enjoyed the sex scenes.
I really liked the author’s first book “Protecting What’s His.”
