Publisher's Summary

RITA Award Winner, Best Contemporary Single Title, 2000

When Alessandra Lamont is nearly blown to pieces in a mafia hit, the last thing she wants is to place her trust into the hands of sexy, loose-cannon federal agent Harry O'Dell, who'll do whatever it takes to bring the mob down - even if it means sticking like glue to this blonde bombshell who unwittingly married into it.

She needs him if she wants to stay alive, and he needs her if he is to exact his revenge for the death of his wife and son. But staying alive is nothing next to the explosive attraction that threatens to consume them both - and places them into the greatest danger of all...falling in love.

akward early effort

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I am a big fan of Brockmann's other books -- especially the last five or so SEAL Team series. On that basis, I thought I'd try this novel, one of her early (earliest?) efforts. Everybody starts somewhere, after all.

This is not a bad novel, but it is awkward and strained in tone, and the characters are less well rounded than those in later books. The narrator handled all the different regional and social dialects well.

Somehow it just didn't gel for me.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Hmmm. I'd rather see Izzy Zanella on a big screen, I think.

Excellent Story

Well written and a great ending. As always a Brockmann book is worth reading. Worth the money.

Good performance, but predictable

I started with a blonde bombshell, who acted dumb. I finished with a better perception, but not by much. Story was predictable. Harry was just as stupid as Ali

Really good and Enjoyable

I don’t like the crime story books but this was not the usual story. I really enjoyed the story an the sub story. Any book that holds my attention like this one is a must read. Just could not put it down.

Well done!

Suzanne Brockman is one of my favorite authors and this book is an example of why. The pictures she paints with her words light up the characters into believable people who I loved and hated. This book scared me to death, made me cry and filled my heart. The narrater did a wonderful job. I just didn't want it to end!

Couldn’t stop listening

This was a wonderful audiobook. It sucked me right in and I couldn’t stop listening. There were a lot of tense moments and I just knew there would be no way out alive. I liked the romance part and I’m curious as to whether George will pursue Kim after this. The only thing I didn’t like was toward the end, there was just so much usage of GD . I can handle just about any language except that, especially when a kid says it. I understand why he did at first, but the next time I cringed.

The narrator was excellent. Really knew how to bring a book to life.

Brockmann at her best!

Suzanne Brockmann was my favorite writer through many books, but then I thought she lost some stream and I moved on. I chose this because I had to choose a second book from a small set. Once I started on it I couldn't leave it alone until it was finished. I love the characters and the storylines were interesting and unpredictable until the last page.
