Publisher's Summary

President Jack Spiers fled Washington DC on the heels of a devastating attack on CIA headquarters, masterminded by one of America's own, former General Porter Madigan. While the world believes Jack was killed in the bombing, he embarks on a wild infiltration mission, smuggling himself into occupied Russia to rescue the love of his life: former Secret Service Agent and First Gentleman Ethan Reichenbach. 

Reunited, Jack, Ethan, and deposed Russian president Sergey Puchkov, along with President Elizabeth Wall - the only person left in Washington DC who Jack trusts - must work together. They piece together a desperate plan, hunting Madigan to the ends of the earth and the bitter frigidity of the Arctic, where Madigan's world-shattering doomsday plan comes together. 

Outnumbered, outmaneuvered, and outgunned, Jack, Ethan, Sergey, and the rest of the team struggle to put a stop to Madigan and his army. In the desolate extremes of the Arctic, their resolve, their strength, and even their love is tested, pushed to the absolute limits as choices must be made: choices that pit the fate of the world against the love in their hearts, and the loves of their life.

Contains mature themes.

Perfect end

What a series. Honestly, secret service agent and president fall in love? The premise should have been ridiculous. But damn can Tal Bauer write. Not only was this story thoughtful & engaging. It swept you up with side characters just as engaging as the main characters. It was a roller coaster of emotions, but I will buy tickets for this ride again and again. I’m so happy to have this story in audio format. I hope his whole catalogue of books gets the same treatment. Fantastic.

Fantastic Suspenseful Action Romance Series

5 Blue Roses
4 Blue Flames

Narrator John Solo scooped it up and ice lollied the shit out of this performance. Listeners will lick every drop of nervous tension, suckle on the cold anticipation, and nibble on the endless torturous outmaneuvering of mad-psyco Madigan. This talented narrator has the ability to carry a listener away and into the story, submersing listeners fully into the ice-sculpted world; Tal Bayer created.

For the love of Siberian snowmen or Nenets, what an arctic adventure it was! I will say it again!!! I love audiobooks that are longer, and I feast on audiobooks that are 20 hours long. Creating this excellent audiobook must have taken a massive amount of blood, sweat, and a massive amount of creative fuck words, and I salute this author/narrator team by nominating them for the Goodreads audiobook and narrator of the year!

Not once did I think OMG maybe headbanging the garage door would be more exciting, or kill me already hell sounds less torturous.

No, this series is so far up the quality ladder, it makes Outlander look like a kids’ backyard pretend war game. People who don’t see that, pull your blinders over your clappers and move on.

The skillful narration and dramatization drenched us with enough adrenaline to light up a small city. Listeners, grab onto your snowmobiles and pack those RPG’s, you’re gonna go hunting in the Arctic. This frozen vanilla custard pie was beautifully done with three cherries on top (PUN totally intended). We got tossed with three gay couples, their love is nervously sweet and tangy. My favorite couple is the Russians, I found them very entertaining. Hardheaded and stubborn, is how I would describe them.

I have no clue in what year this series played out. It’s absolutely fiction. The author managed to build a world that is totally political, without any danger of connotation to our reality. I enjoyed it for that reason so much more.

I do recommend this audiobook.

Happy Listening

Great conclusion of an epic adventure

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

📖 Story comment: If i'm going to ask "how much can one Author put his characters through" - I think this series is my new benchmark 🤣.

I've thoroughly enjoyed this concluding story of the Executive Office series. It's had all the elements of an epic adventure keeping me glued to my earbuds at every opportunity. My only negative comment (and why the story is more a 4.75 and not a 5 stars) would be the "people cloning", just pushed my realms of reality a little too far, on what was a story that has been so relatively grounded in reality and could have been set in any year of any current (or not too distant future) day.
I very much appreciated that this book didn't just end at the "saving of the world" with a fast wrap up HEA, but we got actual conclusions and glimpses into the lives of the characters as they become the best versions of themselves and get the lives they are due.

🎧 Narrator comment: John Solo's masterful performance has been a big factor in my enjoyment of this series. His characters have remained consistent across all the books, i've felt all the emotions, action, adventure, torture, heart pounding terror and joy - its been a journey of epic proportion, that I will happily experience over and over again. 👍👍

I struggled at times

Strong men, hard willed and successful become vulnerable and risk taking because they find their love of their life in another man…..and I struggled with the character shift.
It doesn’t change the quality of the tale too much - just impact on the voracity.
Still truly enjoyed it!

I wish the author had left out chapter 17,

After 2 books of Ethan and Jack going crazy to be with other I felt completely grossed out hearing the intimate scene with Jack and Sergey. I don't care that nothing happened, I didn't appreciate it at all. I'm not even sure I want to finish this now. Ugh. In fact the entire direction Sergey's character was going in this book has been grating my nerves, and then chapter 17 happened. I'll probably skip anything to do with his parts now, which I hate to do, but that one scene ruined the whole damn series for me.
Everything else is so good though.

Loved this series.

How much can one man take? How much as President of the US? This story does take place a little bit into the future with being able to create clones parts to heal injuries or even whole people but still was a good story line. Jack is a widow his wife served and died in the military. 16 years later he becomes President. He doesn’t have a lot of friends. So he befriends his secret service agent Ethan. Ethan know the rules never get close, nothing personal. Personal feeling get involved and they develop into more. Then chaos comes raining down on Jack head. He’s in way over his head but he has Ethan by his side to weather him through it. They need to stop a mad man trying to take over the world. Armageddon is happening now.

Mind Blown....

This series has felt like an epic climb up to the summit of the Himalayan mountains !

I feel like I've lived with Jack, Ethan, Sergei, Sasha, Scott, Adam, Faisal and so many more men for months. I thought the story would never conclude ! But what a heart stopping story it is, non stop action and treachery in many forms.
10 stars for the story and 10 stars for the story teller. If there were any mistakes I never heard any, it was so good .

Just where IS the Artic Mr Solo??

Well, John kept doing it...Artic instead of Arctic, Sosha and then Sasha, but overall a good ending [??] to this monster of a series.

***Book Review***

5 stars for the series as a whole. I did guess who the traitor was in the White House, so go me for that one, but as far as Adam's team was concerned, not a bl**dy clue I'm afraid 😏.

Tal must have spent months researching all of the different aspects of the story, and congrats to him and his team for doing such a stellar job.

Far fetched but great fun!

Have really enjoyed this series. V. Nicely written characters with an action packed storyline. Did find it all got a little silly but I just embraced it in the end. Some great twists and turns to the point where I literally exclaimed out loud in surprise at one point. Narrator did a great job, Russian accent was questionable but tbf better than mine! Thumbs up!

Enjoyable

I have absolutely loved this series. Great balance of action, varied plot lines, character development, relationship development, theoretical plausible situations delivered in a Hollywood action thriller way. Compared to the previous books I found myself sometimes rolling my eyes at things like the trust they put in enemies, and Adam’s behaviour, and occasionally my attention drifted off when the book lulled. However, those times never lasted for long and it would have been a five star book otherwise. I really hope this author publishes more audiobooks as they’re a very talented writer. Highly recommend this series.
