Wealthy socialite Olivia Barton never imagined her fiancé would disappear on what was supposed to be a routine business trip. She's even more heartbroken and confused when a hired private investigator tracks him half a world away, to a seaside town in Colombia. But the country has recently been ravaged by a massive earthquake and deadly tsunami, shutting down outside communication and making travel all but impossible. Still, Olivia is determined to make it to Colombia to find the answers she so desperately seeks. What she needs is a guide - a mercenary.

I was glad to hear Carson Stinger mentioned because Stinger is my favorite Mia Sheridan book of all time. This book was good but I felt like the ending was rushed and you didn't really get a picture of what their life was like after reuniting. I enjoyed the narrators.

He loves me, and he doesn't even know my real name. The limelight that follows him could expose everything I'm hiding. But even knowing the risks, I can't force myself to stay away. I'm going to break his heart, but mine will shatter right along with it. Will we lose it all when I reveal what's beneath this mask?

I expected dark and was ok with it but Damian was just violent and full of rage. He cut off her finger! That wasn't just dark it was violent and sadistic. His character had some real sociopathic tendencies and in real life women should avoid men like this because they don't actually change. I could enjoy the book because I LOVE Zachary Webber's voice and the way it was written made him seem more human. I just couldn't forget that she was permanently disfigured by this man yet she loves him. What message did that send to Sierra? Damian was a bad guy. The kind you should avoid like the plague in real life.

Ty and Miranda have always considered themselves cousins, due to the fact that they both share a common relative - Colt - even though they aren't really related at all. After helping Miranda deliver her baby in the backseat of a car, Ty becomes closer to both she and her baby. Their long-distance friendship keeps them platonic, even though in the past they both have wondered if there was something more happening between them. When something happens, and Miranda is forced to leave Kentucky and stay at Ty's parents farm, sparks start to fly.

If you have a character with a Southern accent, please just get a Southerner to narrate. I like John Lane as a narrator but him trying to emulate a Southern accent just sounded ridiculous and almost made me just give up on the book.

The narrator grew on me in the first book. Initially I thought I would not listen because I didn't like his voice but I actually feel he was the perfect narrator for this type of book. In this book, I felt so conflicted about what Frost did. While it was indeed the right thing I didn't know if it was the best thing. But I know that if things like what Jess did is allowed it could easily be a slippery slope. Then I was mad at Maria Lopez because surely you could have waited until conditions were better to take a run. This was an excellent book. Kept you guessing and feeling so many emotions as you listened.

The male narrator was great but his voice was far too mature for Jude's character. That is a pet peeve of mine. I think it's important to make sure those who narrate match the character.

Once, I was nothing. Hungry, abandoned, wandering, and alone. An adolescent street rat fighting for crumbs. Then a chance encounter changed my entire world. A man in an expensive suit asked me how much my life was worth. I didn't have an answer because I didn't know. He asked if I thought it was worth killing for. Impulsively, I said yes.... He found me, then fostered me, and, in the interim, turned me into a killing machine.

Wow. This book had so many twists and turns you never knew what was going to happen next. It grabs and keeps your attention. You don't immediately know just how psychotic Simon is immediately. The part about what he allowed to happen to Billy had me holding back tears. He was evil through and through.
