All FBI agent Ethan Thomas wants is to come home to his new apartment and enjoy the luxury of his new flat-screen TV and some frozen pizza. Encountering a tiny toddler alone in the hall changes everything for the rough and rugged agent. Relief sets in when the child's mother appears. But when she collapses at his feet just before a blizzard hits Boston, Ethan is in over his head. 

Now, Ethan is changing diapers, playing doctor, and loving every minute of it. The mother and child need a place to stay, and Ethan can't possibly turn them away. But this investigator knows people, and the woman he’s falling for is keeping secrets. Can he uncover the truth while protecting them from the dangers of his job?

Codename Romeo

I enjoy Lucy Leroux’s writing style. Unfortunately, I did not care for this book as much as "Eat You Up." Absolutely loved that book. Ethan owned an apartment building with his buddies and was slowly renovating it. Julia was staying in a studio with her niece Luna. Ethan is an FBI agent and Julia is on the run after her family is killed. There are some really funny scenes with the baby, Luna and how Ethan reacts. I love how everything worked out in the end with Juliette, Luna and Ethan. I am not sure I will continue on with the series. I will wait until a book 2 comes out.

Marie Smith did a good job with the narration. I was given this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

enjoyed it

Would I listen to it again: yes
Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Was I invested in the characters: yes

Story comment: good pace, well written characters and an entertaining story.
I enjoyed watching FBI agent and longtime bachelor Ethan's gruff edges soften as he spends time caring for Julie and learned what to do with her toddler. 😆

Narrator comment: Marie Smith is a new narrator for me and I think she's done a good job narrating Codename Romeo. I had no problem distinguishing characters and her rhythm, inflections and intonations all worked to bring the book to life.

Rogues and Rescuers

Codename Romeo (Rogues and Rescuers, Book 1) is a entertaining storyline. My favorite was getting a viw of characters from A Singular Obsession Series which is a favorite of mine.

Marie Smith single narration would have been better if it was dual narration. Her inflection was fine just not my preference.

Absolutely Amazing!

This book had me hooked from the start! I loved little Luna and the love and nervousness Ethan shows from the beginning. I'm new to this author and will definitely be looking for more of her books.

Great story

This is the first book in the Rogues and Rescuers series and let me say I really enjoyed listening as tiny Juliet was keeping Ethan on his toes while trying to take care of her and little Luna while Juliet is sick. The narrator did a great job

Cute story

Good storyline even though it is a little predictable. The main characters have good chemistry and there is some action/suspense too.

Good

I liked the story
Had a lot of action
Didn't like that the narrator did Ethan's thoughts in her female voice and that her attempts at the male voices weren't good. A male narrator would have been better.

Overall a good read.

Sweet connection with some steam and suspense

Entertaining story with a good mix of sweet and steamy. I wasn't a huge fan of the premise, but I liked both characters and the bits of suspense added to the story. Listening with Audible was a good experience. The narrator did a good job; she had a nice tone to her voice. Recommend listening if you have the chance. Ethan is a nice guy with a sweetheart. Loved how protective and supportive he is of Julia and Luna. I liked Julia okay; she's a bit too much damsel for my liking, but she has her moments of strength. Ethan and his friends have purchased an old apartment building that they are renovating for themselves. Julia and toddler Luna live in the last apartment left with tenants, but Ethan has been trying to get her to move so they can finish renovations. A snow storm and an illness get in the way of any plans of Julia finding somewhere else to live. Ethan ends up being a lot more involved in Julia and Luna's lives than he ever expected, and Julia has some secrets that may prove dangerous. I wasn't fully a fan of Julia dodging her landlords and how she came to live in the US, but the story does have some interesting elements that kept the story entertaining. Overall, a good story that has me looking forward to more!

Great story

Codename Romeo is an excellent start to the Rogues and Rescuers series. It is a well-written romantic suspense story with an engaging plot and intriguing characters. From the start right to the end, I was wholly immersed.

The narration by Marie Smith is excellent. She does a great job with the characters, bringing them to life. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
