Publisher's Summary

Gabe Maxwell is a powerhouse in the boardroom, a man with a dark past he's buried under success and power. He's not a white-picket-fence-and-forever kind of guy and he's definitely not into redheads. That is until one corners him, kisses him, and thanks him for waking her up. Right before she walks away and leaves him. She's gone and he's obsessed. 

Then she walks into his office and back into his life, and he has to have her. It doesn't matter that she's the kind of woman you marry. It doesn't matter that she's everything he avoids because she's everything he wants. 

Only Abbie isn't the good girl she seems. She has secrets and a past, and soon, she'll pull Gabe into her bed, her life, and that spells more than obsession. It spells danger. ​

unfinished

It is extremely frustrating to read a book that ends unfinished, requiring you to buy another book to get the rest of the story.

...just couldn't get into the repetitive dialogue. Ends in cliffhanger.

I usually love Joe Arden and Erin Mallon narrating, but this one took forever for me to get through. The dialogue was very repetitive and I wanted to scream if I had to listen to the characters mentally refer to each other as "This man, that man" or "this woman, that woman". I forced myself to finish it, only to end up with a cliffhanger. Ugggh, now I have to get the second one because I hate leaving the story unfinished.

Gabe Maxwell’s story

The last of the Maxwell siblings finds his match and she is full of mystery. Gabe also turns out to be an animal lover. This is part 1 with a cliffhanger. Hopefully his sister and brother will play more of a role in the last part of his story as he has played in theirs.
Abby, the new woman in Gabe’s life is an attorney with secrets concerning her past. She’s been divorced a couple years from a violent billionaire with his own secrets. Her mother appears to be a sweet, yet intelligent vet who runs an animal shelter, though she too seems to have a hidden past, and we know next to nothing about Abby’s divorced attorney father except that he prefers calling his daughter Abigail and appears have been a bit controlling in her upbringing. Maybe he’s an attorney for the mob? This is the set up part of the book, with fast dialog, some character development for Gabe but little for Abby, a fair amount of sex but not a lot of answers. Abby is not the easiest character to like as she appears very indecisive, somewhat impulsive and weak willed, and because we don’t know her full story, we can’t really tell whether her behavior is because she is scared or manipulative. The series is a good example of romantic suspense; perfect for the former Romance Package but newly renamed Escape Package. Joe Arden does a great job as Gabe and Erin Mallon is fine as Abby but the performance would have been perfect as a duet given their less than perfect opposite sex voices. Looking forward to the next book in series

Great story but wish this was doe in duet not dual

I am a lover of Lisa Renee Jones' books, there are always the perfect read. The characters are well developed, with the male being the perfect mixture of Alpha with tenderness. I love her females as well, the are never weak annoying damsel in distress types. and She always adds the perfect amount of suspense along with the perfect amount of hotness.

I must say I am loving this whole network or characters. Love that we are seeing a bit more of Reid and Cat and Mia and Grayson plus add in the Walker boys in the background, and I think that is why I love this series so much, it's like one great big family or TV series, each one focusing on a specific story.

I loved Gabe, he comes off as the cold alpha never going to marry or fall in love male who quickly finds himself in new territory with Abbie. He's powerful, and can be cold and calculating but with Abbie and as well Dexter we see a totally softer and much warmer Gabe. I really love Abbie's character,, she's strong and independent, with a bit of sassiness to her.. These two from the start had the spark and the chemistry was quickly off the charts. I love the dynamic the author built with this couple

I loved the storyline, once again the author has added the suspense while keeping the romance to the story. The only thing with this one, I found at times it a bit too heavy on the sex, and would have loved to see the story focus more on the story. There were many times I would have preferred to see less detail or it go black and spend more time with the story than the sex. Normally this author has the perfecdt amount of sex to story in her books but the past two books found it way to sex heavy and it really took away from the story for me and had me skimming.

Overall a really great read but warning, have book two ready as this one leaves you hanging.

I enjoyed the narrators but would have loved it more had it been duet and not dual, the female narrator drove me nuts when she did Gabes parts in a male voice

Seductive and mysterious

While the story itself could have been more complicated, the narrators really did it justice and it was a very enjoyable listen! I am looking forward to listening to the second book in this series since this one left so many questions unanswered!

shiveringly delightful

Gabe is a man after my own heart. He's the total package but with secrets that leave me slavering for more. The intrigue in this story swept me away and Joe Arden and Erin Mallon brought the story and characters into blinding reality.

Power plays

Despite Abby's dangerous and ruthless ex, both Abby and Gabe hide their pasts from each other. Finally Gabe has had enough and decides to take matters into his own hands, but so has Abby.
Warning - Cliffhanger
Joe Arden and Erin Mallon execute the characters in this book with ease and yet inflict their own dramatics into some of the more colorful characters.

Secrets, lies, sex & suspense

Lisa Renee Jones has written some of my favorite stories, seamlessly weaving together plots full of secrets, lies, sex & suspense. This story has all those elements, but the main characters insta-love & devotion felt rushed and didn’t connect with me. And even though this book is the first of a duet, I felt like I was missing important connections by not having read the interconnected books. All in all, a solid story with narration by the always engaging Joe Arden & Erin Mallon.

good story

I hate cliffhangers especially when the next book is not published yet. Joe & Erin did an excellent. job in narrating as always they do. can't wait to the next one comes out I'm excited. But in the meantime I will read something else of Lisa Renee Jones
