Government secrets are being sold, and the newly sworn in president of the United States already feels out of options. Without knowing the full scope of the scandal, the president decides to turn to the one person he knows he can trust - former FBI agent Elizabeth James. Her deep distrust of the system is rooted in her unfair discharge from service. Now she sees a chance to restore her reputation and send a message to those who would use their power to destroy others' lives.

Jenny's single-parent life revolves around her kids and her job, which means that hours of Animal Planet and strings of computer code are about all she has time for. Not that Jenny's looking for adventure or romance - she's the type of woman who believes in playing it safe. When Jenny is called upon to do some consulting for the Bourbon Street Boys - a New Orleans private security firm - she knows she should stay away.

This book had one of the weakest female leads, I found myself getting annoyed by her and her reactions. I couldn't get into the book at all.

The narrator could have been heaps better.

Caleb Barnes is on a mission. He's retired from the Army, but he's waging his own private war now. And though the men of Burnout are his former brothers-in-arms, Caleb fights his battles alone. Caleb was tainted from the moment he was born. He's always been alone and he'll always be alone. The world has no place for a man like him.

Honestly I can't give an honest review of the book as the narrator was absolutely horrible, I couldn't get into the book at all. I'm not sure if the story line was ok or not. The narrator almost spoke in a monotone voice and you couldn't tell the difference between the characters

Vinny Malloy, dedicated to his brothers while working for Alvarez Security, loved life the way he loved his music...loud, hard, and fast. When his friends and twin brother settled down, he continued to be devoted to his easy weekend conquests...until his next mission, when he discovers that opposites can attract. Annalissa O'Brian, a shy harpist with the Richland Symphonic Orchestra, is constantly being told where to perform, regardless of her desire to teach music.

Homeless. Hungry. Desperate. Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from. A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don't want to cross unless you're prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, sex, or a combination of all three. King's future hangs in the balance. Doe's is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go.

You're not supposed to want the one who torments you. When my stepbrother, Elec, came to live with us my senior year, I wasn't prepared for how much of a jerk he'd be. I hated that he took it out on me because he didn't want to be here. I hated that he brought girls from our high school back to his room. But what I hated the most was the unwanted way my body reacted to him.

This book is one of my all time favourites, if not my favourite book so far in 2015. It was well worth all the lost sleep. I liked how you heard the story from both sides and you don't have to wait for the next book to come out to hear it from the man's point of view.

Honestly this book bored me. I found myself listening to the first two chapters then I skipped to the last chapter, even then I didn't listen to the whole thing. Not worth the time I wasted listening to this book and I'm a huge Lori fan.

Enter special ops captain Robert Tate, a man who had seen too much. Ruthless and taciturn, Tate couldn't be more different from Eva. But they had one thing in common: revenge. Tate had seen his brother die by Cruz's hand.

Honestly I found this book a boring and found myself skipping parts to get to the end. When the two leading characters are rescued from the bunker, it was really uneventful and unbelievable. I wouldn't waste my time with this book.
