Publisher's Summary

No one would say Keelie Lockhart isn’t determined. 

Taking on the role of both mom and dad to her two young kids, she’s managing life the best she can. Saddled with a century-old dilapidated farmhouse she can’t afford, a bevy of goats, two dogs, and a geriatric donkey, the last thing she has time for is a man - even if that man is a knight whose shining armor comes in the form of worn-in jeans and work boots.  

Controlled, methodical, and focused - Asa Hollingsworth takes charge of everything in life. Working close to home after years away, he finally has the time to focus on his kids. Little does he know, a chance meeting with a petite strawberry-blonde stranded on the side of the road, would intertwine their lives in a way he’d never want to untangle. 

But when school bullies turn into something much worse, Asa starts to dig around. He never dreams the troubles lurking in the hallways of the local high school would shake his family to its core. With drug dealers lurking, bullets flying, and threats coming from every angle, Asa must do everything he can to protect the ones he loves.

Because in the end, there’s nothing more precious than the gift of life.  

The Killers series is intended for mature listeners.

REALLY ENJOYED THESE TWO FAMILIES UNITING

What a very enjoyable and heartwarming addiction to the series.. because, from the moment 44 year old former Assassin Asa sees Keelie, he’s a man smitten. And thankfully Keelie feel that way too about Asa.. but she’s got a suitcase full of insecurities and emotional baggage that her scum of a dead husband left her with. But she’s got two adorable sweet young children who are their Mom’s whole reason for getting up each day.. well, them and a whole menagerie consisting of goats, cats, a donkey and a dilapidated farm he also left her with. Keelie is a Counsellor at Asa’s teenage son and daughter’s School.. which proves invaluable in the days ahead. So, between them, Keelie and Asa should have lots of barriers standing in their way.. but Asa knows what he wants and very quickly makes himself at home in Keelie’s life and in her home.. and soon introduces himself to her two wee children, befriends them and takes both families out to introduce ‘joint’ family eating.

They were incredibly supportive of one another’s choices.. of the relationship dynamics and boundaries.. and of their children’s delicate feelings while balancing and keeping parental control too. But angst and sinister drama will burst their perfect family bubble and it will bring danger and bloodshed to their doorsteps.. and secrets will come out. Their chemistry is natural and easy-flowing, their sex scenes sizzle and their passion and romance is palpable.

Worth a credit? Yes, this was a smooth listen as Asa and Keelie’s relationship flowed seamlessly to happy town where both loving families merged so well and I really really didn’t want to say goodbye to them. Jason and Kit’s narration was the perfect fit and brought Asa and Keelie’s story to life and they truly gave it the heart it rightfully deserved.

Asa

sigh*** He is the Ultimate book boyfriend.
This is one of my favorite books by Brynne. Asa is such a great character and what he does for Kelee is amazing. how selfless he is, kind, protective. Poor Kelee was put through the ringer from her past and her ability to trust is not easy but Asa is what she needs.
as always Jason and Kit do an amazing job!

Gripping, steamy, and intense!!

Brynne Asher's Gifts was intense, gripping, and heartfelt. I mean seriously, who doesn't love a strong, protective alpha male?! Asa Hollingsworth is that man! Gifts is book 3 in Brynne Asher's romantic suspense Killer Series. I adored Vines and Paths in audio, and I instantly one clicked this audiobook!

Kit Swann and Jason Clarke narrate this audio. These two have narrated this entire series so far, and they are fantastic! Kit Swann really moved me with her performance of Keelie. She does an amazing job of capturing all of Keelie's conflicted emotions, and I was just left mesmerized by her performance! Jason Clarke really inhibits Asa, portraying all his protective, determined, alpha qualities! Yes...the growl is strong in this one! Both narrators are so damn good!

Gifts is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing. Keelie is a single mom and high school guidance counselor, that you can't help but fall in love with. Asa is a single dad, who is super loyal to the ones he loves. These two characters together have off the charts chemistry that is HOT! I'm looking forward to reading/ listening to more from Brynne Asher!

So good, you’ll listen more than once

I love Brynne Asher’s Killer Series. The characters are great. Love that the men are strong but so caring. And the women-they are sent and independent as well. The narrators for this series knock it out ifbthe park each time. I love this book as well as the others I’ve read and listened to each one multiple times…and I feel like it’s new every time. Can’t recommend enough.

My favourite of the series so far

I’ve really enjoyed the ‘Killers’ series but liked Gifts the most - no doubt due to Asa Hollingsworth! I’m in my 40s and it’s nice to have characters in romance books who aren’t in their 20s; I also really just want an Asa in my life! The storyline was gripping and it was so sweet how their families came together. Highly recommended!

FABULOUS & DEFINITELY 5 ⭐️

This was the 3rd book in the killers series and it was as excellent as the previous 2👍❤️

This story ticks every single box and the author hits the mark every time! Romance, hot sex, intrigue, suspense and a fabulously hot hero lead.
The characters have depth, a great back story and fantastic chemistry. All characters are well thought out and likeable, apart from the villains of course 🙂
The story was a perfect length and completed properly and not rushed, like some other books I’ve read/listened to (not by this author)where you’re like ‘is that it?’ And feel a bit cheated. Absolutely not the case here!
This author knows her craft and respects her readers.
Finally, the narrators of these books are perfect and very well chosen. I would go so far as to say, for portraying male and female leads, they are a dream team! Love them ❤️
Thanks Brynne Asher for another fabulous book….this is why I read/listen.

VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I'm loving kit swann

Wow, I thought this book was going to be mild but the gritty topic that's been written about is all to real.
I normally steer clear of stories with kids but when it's a series i tend to follow.
Again like Grady from book 2 I struggled to connect with Asa. He's definitely alpha as he won't let anything slide. And Emma being her age makes this plot believable.
The pace is very domestic and even but the end swings bang on.
I had 2 baddies to decide on and I got it wrong. But it was a good ending.
Jason clarke is awesome at narrating. But I have to say kit swann is absolutely fantastic. Her tone and inflections and different voices are just brilliant.
Love this author. Ms Asher keeps you guessing and keeps the steam and angst moving along. Loving this series
