Ex-special forces Jacob King is a man who keeps to himself, having learned the hard way that letting people close to you, trusting them, might just get you killed. A lesson he learned when members of his Special Ops team turned dirty while others, men he considered friends, died. He made them pay. He made them hurt. He put them in jail. And so he doesn't trust anyone anymore. He keeps his women hot and fast, his friends few to none, and his clients through the elite Walker Security at a professional distance, but safe. It works for him. Until it doesn't.

Normally, I can ignore the voices and inflections of the narrators. Not this time. They made it unbearable to continue listening. As much as I love all of Lisa Renee Jones’ other books, I just couldn’t with this one.

My name is Savannah Miller. My father is the mayor of New York. One day, after my 27th birthday, I was grabbed from behind. A cloth sack was quickly pulled over my head, and I was taken from everything I'd ever known. I was beaten, starved, treated like an animal, and forced to live in a room with no windows. With no sense of time and no dignity left, I finally gave up hope and made a promise to myself to end it all. Unfortunately, it was going to be a slow process.

I’ve found a new love in Amish romance novels. But I’m not a fan of how abruptly they end. I’ve listened to several different authors and have found this to be true for each one of them.

This author is GREAT with the twists and turns she writes into her stories but this one is seriously twisted.

It may be a bit too much for my taste but it was still good.

Life was great. I loved my bachelor life and working my dream job with the Colorado Springs SWAT team. That all changed the day I stepped into her bakery. Her smile swept me off my feet, and her panna cotta was heaven. Cue my very traditional Greek family. Then all hell broke loose.

Casualties. That's how I refer to the guys who've had the bad fortune to fall for me. They see only long legs that they wish were wrapped around them, a catlike smile, and the reckless abandon to take on any wild dare. It's all a game to me. Show me a bridge, and I'll leap over the side. Give me a car, and I'll race it. Give me a heart, and I'll break it. I always win. I even showed Death who was boss a long time ago. Or so I thought. Now time is running out, and I'm losing fast...and big.

The other nannies in this city don't call him the Sexy One for nothing. My boss, the amazingly wonderful single father to the girl I take care of every day is ridiculously hot, like movie star levels with those arms, and those eyes, and that body. Not to mention the way he dotes on his little girl melts me all over. But what really makes my knees weak are the times when his gaze lingers on me. In secret. When no one else is around. I can't risk my job for a chance at something more, can I? But I don't know how to resist him much longer either.
