Publisher's Summary

There are three things you need to know about Shane P. I.  

  1. P.I. is not her last name, it's her job title 
  2. Her specialty is catching cheaters
  3. She's a superhuman - kind of.  

Gabriel is a security expert for Cipher Security, and a former UN Peacekeeper with a fierce protective streak that finds its focus on the beautiful P.I. Their attraction is like an elephant in a room full of breakable things, and figuring out how to trust each other with their hearts, and maybe their lives, is the most fragile thing of all.  

Contains mature themes.

Extremely slow and boring

I was looking forward to this book. The premise was great, but fell short of an interesting story line. The characters and their stories weren’t developed and they didn’t have back up character stories to give the readers a break from listening to them do nothing everyday. The male characters voice sounded like he was 80 years old with a stick up his behind. I made myself finish and it was painstakingly miserable. Not worth an audible purchase.

Swoooon! And I have a new online bio

SPOILERS AHEAD

Short of it already being taken, I will forever explain in my bios and in person that the type of guy I am searching for is my Star Lord to my Gamora. Now, I just have to be as badass as Gamora and I’ll be halfway there!

I haven’t written a review in a while but hats off for this book being the positive trigger for it. I appreciated that there were bits of real life added to the scene where Gabriel was being interrogated. Of course, if it had been MORE real in the scene leading up to it, I would have likely dropped this book like a hot potato, pulled my hair out and gone running madly into the wind. HEAs and ridiculously, sickeningly sweet is my escape and that would have been a bit too much “real”. I live this issue and so many other social justice issues in my professional and personal life daily and HEAs are part of my self-care routine. That said, I greatly appreciate the acknowledgment of it because that would have left me queasy, too. I also appreciate that the author chose not to have Gabriel express his feelings on the issue. I don’t know anything about the author’s background but I hope they let that hang out there 1) because they can’t really know what he would feel and 2) every experience is unique to that person and it wouldn’t be fair to imply that everyone would come out of the experience in the same way.
As for the build between S.Hane and Gabriel, it was a VERY slow burn and the self-restraint on both sides was almost unbelievable. Having just finished the book, though, I think I need to rest on it a bit. It’s making more sense to me as I think on the characters and there back stories. While reading, I tend to be in the “what happens next” mode rather than the “let me reflect on this” mode.

It’s been a while but I now want to go back and read the knitting series all over again. I’ve fallen in love with those characters all over again. Very excited to listen/read to the other Smartypants books as well. The audiobooks are great.
I’m hoping Sparky, Han, and Van get their own stories, too.

Fascinating story!

This was a very adult story with more swearing and sex than I'm used to reading teen books. The story was interesting and the characters were engaging. I was rooting for both main characters and loved the ending. The narrators did a great job!

I loved it!!

I loved the story, and though Gabriel voice sounded a bit older than it should have, it has to be one of my favorite super women romances!!!
