Publisher's summary

A USA Today best-selling novel.

Years ago, we were in love. She was an up-and-coming superstar and I was the security professional hired to keep her safe. We fell hard and fast, no matter how much we tried to resist one another. But not everyone around us was happy about our relationship, and a string of lies and deceit destroyed what we once had. I moved on from her and didn't look back.

Now, I've taken the helm of a nationally renowned protective services company, and I'm looking to rebrand my career. The newly crowned Jameson force security is moving from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas to the mountainous steel town of Pittsburgh, and the last thing I have time for is to deal with my past.

More than a decade has passed since our split, but even a bruised and battered heart remembers its first love. So when Joslyn Meyers comes to me for help, I reluctantly agree to keep her safe from a terrifying stalker who keeps threatening her life.

As the danger continues to intensify, it becomes clear that I'll stop at nothing to protect the woman who turned her back on me all those years ago. Because one thing is certain - no matter how hard I try to convince myself otherwise, Joslyn still has my heart.

JUST MEH! DIDN'T LIKE THIS COUPLE.

This always frustrate the heck out of me...

If you are supposed to be badass enough to belong to the equivalent of military special forces, you are supposed to be "good" at it. Then why oh why do characters that are supposed to have special skills are written as inept fools?

The main characters handling of bad situations is just not acceptable. The hero acts like a peacock showing off, while failing at what he is "peacocking" about. If you are supposed to be "the best" a character should be written as "the best!" And our heroine, who is supposed to have hired "the best" to do a job, doesn't give him the chance to do the job.

These two people were written as dimwitted fools.

Shane East is always a pleasure to listen to.

This story was not for me.

Good story, great male voice, terrible female voice

This is a tough one for me...I LOVE Sawyer Bennett. She is a one-click author for me. I have read all of her books at least once. Love her. However, this story was not my favorite. It was very good, very well done and a great start to the series. I waited awhile after I finished to review this so I could think about my reasons for the less than stellar review. So here goes...
The story was good. I got distracted with other things frequently though...hence my reflection before this review. I think the reason I was unable to focus 100% was the excruciatingly overacted narration by Imogen Church...NOT the story. Had the female narrator been different, this would’ve been an easy 5 star for me.
Shane East...what can I say? He’s always such a pleasure to listen to. His tone, inflection, pacing and overall delivery is impeccable. And that accent. Swoon...
Imogen had a few scenes where she wasn’t so over-the-top and it was such a relief. Those scenes were good. But the other 95% of her scenes were brutally overdone...to the point of being squeaky and cartoonish. She’s a talented actress. She just overdid it in this book.
It’s worth a listen. I’m in the middle of the next book in this series and am enjoying it immensely.

Ahhh <sigh>

Finally Kynan’s story and I wasn’t disappointed. I like how they quickly resolved their issue from the past and we didn’t get any of the angst typical in romances. Good narration for a good story, ready for book 2.

This was an awesome story filled with excitement and adventure. The narrators did an excellent job of giving each character their own voice. I cant wait to read more in this series.

Romantic suspense at it’s best!

It’s hard to find a good romantic suspense but Sawyer Bennett provides just that in this book! I’m loving her writing and these narrators are fantastic! Shane East has a real British accent (just an fyi) and both did a great job.

Great Story, Bad Female Narrator

Let me start by saying this is a great story. It's exciting, the characters are well developed, and it's very well written. For me however, the female narrator ruined the audio. She tried to, over act, the voices and it absolutely took away from the story. I got so distracted and irritated by her voice that I lost track of what was happening in the story. The male narrator was very engaging, without trying too hard. his parts I was captivated, which is honestly the only reason I kept going. I'll read this book over and over, but I definitely can't sit through listening to it again.

The story and male narrator were 5 stars, but the female narrator drops this to 3 stars

The story and male narrator’s performance were excellent, but the female narrator’s performance was not good. Her pattern of speech, the frequent warble in her voice, and her tone were like listening to nails on a chalkboard. It was so bad that I ended up going back and buying the eBook so I could enjoy the story without having to listen to this female narrator. I really liked book 2 in this series and will listen to book 3 if they choose another female narrator for that book.

Terrible performance

Imogene sounds like she’s high. I couldn’t get past the 2nd chapter! It so hard to enjoy it.
