Publisher's Summary

When her life is threatened, keeping her safe is the most important job he'll ever have.

Smith: When my old partner calls in a favor, I agree to keep an eye on his baby sister while she's in town. I owe him my life, so keeping her safe is the least I can do. But once I see her, I find I want to do way more than just protect her.

Mellie: I've been living in fear, but I'm content with my secluded lifestyle and my cat...at least that's what I tell myself. So when a grandfather I've never met leaves me an abandoned house, I have no choice. I set out on a journey I never wanted to take and meet a man determined to tear down the walls around my heart, all while shielding me from danger.

This romantic suspense is the first in a series of stand-alones and contains sensitive topics and adult situations.

It was okay-

So the story isn't bad; both narrators actually made the story come to life but I dont think I would've been as invested in the characters if it wasn't for them. Ava and Jacob are FANTASTIC!! As far as the story goes, it does have a HEA but that's not even the best part; it was the progression of the main characters physical connection. Outside of that; hmm...It was just alright.

I actually cried listening to this book!

This book made me feel so many emotions that I don't even know. I felt impotent as to what the heroine went through that I even cried when she decided to go with the fucking guy. Sometimes I asked myself how someone so innocent and kind-hearted attracts such fucking assholes. At first I felt that she was overprotected, but then I realized that there was actually danger lurking around. Those guys needed to be taken care of before she could have a normal life without being scared out of her mind. Moreover, the author handled the trama well in my opinion. I felt that it was going at the right pace since both main characters started to build friendship and then a relationship together. I guess when you know what you want, you just know.

The performance was great for both Jacob and Ava, they are my favorite. They are my go-to when I'm looking for something new and different to listen to.

Love love love

A story filled bite your nails intensity, love that fills your soul, action that keeps you guessing and heat that warms your cockles.

Anna Brooks is a new author to me and I was so pleasantly surprised. Although I felt like the subplot was teased a bit too much without any fulfillment, the main story was so perfect and I loved it so much.

Jacob Morgan and Ava Erickson are a great match. There were a few points that Jacob Morgan pulled away from the mic when he shouldn’t have and that was a bit awkward but it only happened 3 or 4 times and it really didn’t deter from the story, just pulled me out of the narration a bit. Other than that, everything was perfect.

I can’t wait to explore this author more.
