The story line was great but I would have probably enjoyed it more with a different narrator. The cadence and tone of his voice makes everything seem sinister, didn't feel any sexiness in the hot scenes at all.

When Eliah Al-Saud and Matilde Martínez meet on a flight to Paris, they have little in common. Eliah is the rich and powerful owner of a French security company - actually a front for mercenary and espionage services - while Matilde is a pediatric surgeon from Argentina whose only dream is to work in Africa helping children in need. Despite their differences - and their current relationships - an undeniable attraction swallows them whole, driving them into a whirlwind romance and placing them at the center of an explosive international conflict.

Any additional comments?

I see why this book is over 20 hours long, the majority of the story is description of past events in waaaaay too much detail, and they had nothing to do with the character building of the main characters, just mindless filler. I will admit, I did not listen to the book in it's entirety, I couldn't get past the first 6 hours. I kept waiting for it to get better and it didn't! I finally just gave up, don't waste your money or a credit on this one!
