Publisher's Summary

August

My training? Professional.

My job? Hitman for a government organization.

And my next assignment? Infiltrate Marchand's crew.

Vague information, but a solid job. Why do I care?

Because this family "business" of crooks I'm investigating includes a Bajan little sister....

And she's the definition of sex on legs.

She's trouble, and I don't know if I can stay away.

Natalia

I lead a dangerous life, and so do my brothers. But when my kid sibling is saved by sexy, muscular August Reiss wearing that signature cocky smile, my gut tells me not to trust him. He's good to my brothers... but should I believe everything he says?

One thing's for sure. If my intuition is right, I'm going to put a bullet right between those gorgeous murky green eyes.

August!

This was my first Amarie Avant's book and my first listen to Gregory Salinas. The story is suspenseful, fast-paced and action packed, filled with twists and turns. The first scene is suspenseful and so heartbreaking! I love the story of August and Natalia. They share a great chemistry. Both are great characters. I love the ending. The narrator has a great voice. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Not a Ménage or a love triangle at all!

Love it? It was a great listen.
Struggle to finish? Not really, just a little frustrated at the beginning, almost giving up. However, I'm glad I listened without giving up.

Favorite part of the story: Almost different than any other I have read. Very unexpected!!

Love and Action

August came into Natalia's life just in time to save her. The action and the suspense in this book beyond my expectation. This has been one of the best BWWM books I have read in awhile. A must read.

Great listen/read

Great book. I was pulled right in and the characters, storyline, action and romance kept me captivated.
August and Talia are both such strong characters, you can definitely fell their connection. The secondary characters are also great, especially Grammie and Georgia. I feel like we need more time with August and Natalia.
New author for me and I will be checking out more of her work.

So the narrator made this book for me. I enjoyed all his voice work and growls. He definitely helped bring these characters to life and made this book an experience instead of just a read.

Wow!

Gregory Salinas does an amazing job with all the accents!
Natalia is on the run from her past. A man in Barbados wants her back after she got away. The things that happened in her past make her untrustworthy of anyone except her brothers. They steal to survive.
August has a job to do and it involves getting close to Natalia. He has no plans for a relationship. Not until he gets revenge. When the attraction between them heats up will they trust each other to not get hurt again? What about when Natalia finds out she is just a job to August?

This is such a suspenseful action filled listen and I recommend!

Auggie, Auggie!!

Wow! Riveting, action-packed and suspenseful from the very beginning! This is a definite MUST READ! The momentum of the story keeps you wanting to read more. It is suspenseful with gruesome details; murder, mystery, secrets, lies, intrigue, suspense, and passion continue to keep you glued to the pages of this fascinating story. You will love this suspenseful romance where two people find happiness in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Natalia Marchand is from Barbados, beautiful, sassy, can hold her own with any gun, and she is the glue to hold her family together. August Reiss is tall, arrogant, but sexy as hell. Although he is handsome, he had a nefarious side to him. When August (Auggie) meets Natalia, he likes the feisty, sassy, and obstinate beautiful woman. The chemistry between Natalia and August grows more potent the more time they spend together—the sex is off-the-chart hot! Because of one incredible moment where August’s secret is revealed and there is an unbelievable tension between August and Natalia. What was the secret August concealed? This book was everything I hoped it would be—emotional, angsty, and beguiling from the beginning until the end. There are several surprises and plot twists and turns within the story that makes it interesting with deep and troubled characters. This suspenseful, steamy read with secrets, lies, murder, and suspense—some you see coming, some you don’t…. It will be hard to put this down once you get started!

Action & Love

I really enjoyed August character. There was action from beginning to end. I loved August grandmother! She was absolutely hilarious! I really appreciated the great character development and the supporting characters being just as interesting as the main characters.

Suspense and romance together

I wish I could give this a perfect score. The writing was good, the story was sexy and clever, and the narration was mostly great. The issue, and it was a big one, was 1. the narrator made me cringe every time he tried to mimic a caribbean accent. it was absolutely terrible. And 2. for a book featuring Bajan characters, it would have been expected that the narrator would know how to pronounce that word, which he didn't. It was repeated enough that it made me want to put the book down many times. In respect for the writer, I kept going.

Give It A Try!

August...My training? Professional. My job? I am a hitman for a government organization. His next assignment is to infiltrate Marchand's crew. Because this family "business" of crooks I'm investigating includes a Bajan little sister....And she's trouble, and I don't know if I can stay away.

He's good to my brothers... but should I believe everything he says? One thing's for sure. If my intuition is right, I'm going to put a bullet right between those gorgeous murky green eyes.

When I started this book I was excited and it started out so good but then it kind of fell off and from there it lost me. It was a good story line but needed more action for me. My suggestion also would be to have 2 narrators or for Gregory to use a more womanly voice to help to distinguish between Natalia and August. I encourage everyone to try it for yourself and make your own decision.

An action packed story

The author knows how to grab your attention. This story is full of action , from start to finish . You won’t be able to put it down till the end .
Enjoyed the story of August and Natalia. Natalia is being blackmailed by a man that has abused her terriblely and he wants money . If he doesn’t get what he’s asking for he will abuse her family in ways that isn’t pleasant.
August is a hitman who is given an assignment to take care of Natalia . There is an instant attraction between the two one that is very strong. Both August and Natalia have given up on the opposite sex because they both experienced a painful experience. Grab it and see who wants Natalia taken care of .

I love Gregory the narrator voice . His voice is perfect, strong , clear and he does all the characters perfectly .

Fast paced and full of suspense!

A good hitman story, Amarie Avant has filled us with passion and suspense! I enjoyed August's story. The opening scene left me heartbroken and wanting to know where August would end up. When he is given the mission to stay with Natalia and find out what she is up to, his whole life turns upside down. Not only is he attracted to her, he has no idea what he is looking for. His instinct is to protect and love her. Natalia is a strong woman, loves her family fiercely and will do anything to keep them safe. Will August find what he is looking for? And do the two keep her family protected? There is a lot in this story. August has a great back story, one that will make you look at this dark and dangerous man with a little softness. Natalia has many layers, brought on by the life that she never intends to be a part of. The story is a little dark, very suspenseful and extremely passionate.

With the voice of Gregory Salinas, we get that deep,dark, alpha male in August . He is a wonderfully talented artist and is able to give August's voice just enough tension to make him seem a little aloof, yet when he is with Natalia, that voice is able to change. Salinas is also able to give Natalia a fire in her tone, you know not to mess with her. Yet he can give her the vulnerability she really has underneath. Add in a family of characters using both island and creole accents, and the narration is amazing.
