Publisher's Summary

Only two things could make former Navy SEAL Leo Anderson return to the world of weapons and warfare. The first is a capsule of chemical weapons lost on the ocean floor. The second is a plea for assistance from the one woman he can't seem to forget - CIA Agent Olivia Mortier.

Now, working together to race against the clock and a deadly terrorist faction, Leo and Olivia must find the missing capsule, all the while battling the intense desire burning between them. If they manage to survive, can their growing attraction become more than just a momentary flare?

Over 3 hrs in and I'm calling it quits

I've tried to get into this book for over 3 hours now. Nothing has caught my attention and I normally find something to look forward to. The characters are flat, to me it seems the bombs and weapons are better described. A quarter way through and I'm moving onto the next book in my lineup. The narrator was not the best and didn't have much inflection between the male and female voices.

Horrible narration..

I’m LMAO wondering how this person got anything but 1 star. These are all Navy SEALs and every one of them sounded just like a girl, even Romeo sounded like a Spanish girl. AND they were ALL supposed to be sexy sounding. Good grief, one of the guys was 6 and half feet tall and I sure can’t see him sounding like a girl, but he did. This book should have definitely been narrated by a man. I mean the beginning of the book was 4 or 5 guys sitting outside on the beach and the one telling the story about the sunken treasure sounded so girly it wasn’t even normal. It was horrible narration.

I would also like to say that the description tells us what the book is about or we can zip over to Amazon and look at reviews. This is AUDIBLE! What we need to review mostly is the narrator, and an honest review. Does he or she suck? Why? Is he or she too nasal-y, too sweet for the kind of book he or she is reading, to gruff, too bland, too robotic, lacks emotion. Is he or she doing nothing but reading the book? Not changing his or her voice for the male and female voices? Is the narrator sounding the same whether she or he is reading a whisper spoken, a yell, a laugh, whatever? Most of us on AUDIBLE don't really care what the book is about. We want to know about the narrator!

I gave the Story and Overall 3 stars because I'm not finishing the audio and I want to be fair to the author.

Never underestimate the value of Love

When you said goodbye you never thought you would be seeing her again. When deadly weapons fall into the wrong hands there's only one person to retrieve the weapons

if you like long hot sex scenes this is it.

storyline was excellent, the characters were interesting, the narrator was outstanding. I didn't care for the long exaggerated hot sex in the middle of a good storyline. but you can skip through it.
