Publisher's summary

Four years ago, Dylan made Alex's heart race and her blood pound whenever he touched her. The high school quarterback was everyone's dream boyfriend. Then Alex's dad caught them in a compromised position in her room and sent Dylan out of their house and out of her life. Dylan left town a few weeks later, saying he'd never be back.

They're about to learn you should never say never.

When they meet again over a mummified corpse in the blazing Arizona desert, what secrets is Dylan carrying, and why does he have to look so damn good? Before long, the town believes the death was murder, and Alex, now a college student and aspiring investigative journalist, can't decide whether she'd like to find out what she missed all those years ago, or help put Dylan behind bars.

What's going on in this tiny Arizona border town? Will Alex get the chance to make up her mind about Dylan, before she's marked for murder herself?

Thrilling story

I was surprised by how much information was given away early in the story, it meant there were less surprises than I normally expect but this didn't make the story less gripping.

I really enjoyed the characters, they were complex and interesting. The setting was beautifully described and I could 'see' it in my mind. The plot was engaging and kept me up way too late listening when I should have been sleeping.

The narration was a disappointment, the character voices were not believeable and both male and female voices were difficult to tell a part. The overall delivery was OK mostly natural but with a few odd pauses.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Never say never

Never say never. Dylan and Alex were caught by her father and Dylan promised to never return. Four years later, they meet again over a corpse. Alex is an inspiring investigative reporter who is searching for the facts surrounding the corpse. But she is distracted by her need to know the answer to what could have been.

This book is a romantic suspense novel. Dylan and Alex have such chemistry that keeps the romance hot. The who or what that is involved with the corpse keeps the reader guessing. The book does not slow its pace so it is easy to read in one sitting. It does end leaving the reader with questions not answered yet.

Tom Johnson was. a good narrator for this book. Mr Johnson was able to change his pitch to separate the characters so that the listener could follow along easily. He narrated with animation that helped bring the book to life. Mr Johnson helped make this story more enjoyable.

Young love gets a second chance

How can you not root for Alex and Dylan pulled apart by her father when they were younger. Dylan is forced back home to take care of his dying mother and to get custody of his younger brothers. Alex is a budding reporter who knows what she wants for
the rest of her life. A case brings them
back together and the chemistry is hotter than ever between these two. I'm new to this author so I can say I look forward to reading more from this
author in the future.

Cute Story

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I thought the book was worth listening to. It has a light story. There was only a short part that was suspenseful. I would have liked a little more substance, but I will reserve that final opinion when I have listened to another book by this author. I didn't really care for the narrator. I had trouble distinguishing between the characters. Some times the women sounded like men and the men sounded like women. I don't think it flowed naturally. Probably just needs a little more experience.

Nice

A great suspense and mystery filled story with just the right amount of humor. It's not too mushy on the love but it is sweet. Tom did a good job with the narration although could use a little work on the Spanish spoken. Highly recommended.

Fatal Exposure Review

This was my first book from Jessa Jacobs and I was not disappointed at all.
This was an amazing book and both Tom and Jessa bring the characters to life in the best ways imaginable.

I laughed, gasped and actually said WTF a few times while listening. Great cast of characters and a good plot line, I look forward to hearing more from both the author of this amazing series and the voice behind the narration.
