Publisher's Summary

Jasmine 'Jazz' Parker, Jefferson County SWAT’s only female sniper, can thread the eye of a needle with a bullet. But she carries with her a secret from her past that she thought she buried for good at the age of 15. Two years ago she even drove away the one man she believed she could love - ex–Army Ranger turned reporter Luke Montgomery - to keep her past hidden. But now, in a fleeting second, the time it takes for one clean shot, one perfect hit, to save the life of the governor’s daughter, Jazz’s world begins to crumble around her.

When Luke splashes her face and name across the front page of the newspaper, a vicious enemy from her past returns seeking vengeance without compromise. Jazz is forced to turn to the one man she can never have before she and everyone she cares about pays the ultimate price. Full of explosive action and almost unbearable suspense, In Her Sights is a relentless, steamy thriller surprisingly infused with soul and poignancy.

good start to a series

I liked this first book in the series. I have read a lot of romantic suspense and I think the thing I really liked about it was the author has strong male characters with dangerous occupations and ex military backgrounds and portrayed them as such without every other word being a cuss word or f...ing this and f...ing that. These guys were believeable and very male and dominant guys wothout being crude. My hats off to you Robin P. The narrator was good and I liked the storyline. I will get the next story right away to see which brother is the lead character.

Romantic Suspense @7.34

Jazz is a female sniper on Jefferson County's SWAT team, she has worked hard to not only get the position but to prove that it was the right choice. Jazz has been running for most of her life, never letting people in - it was one of the main issues between her and her ex-boyfriend, reporter Luke Montgomery. After a successful SWAT mission Luke writes an article about Jazz, catapulting her into the spotlight. Unfortunately Jazz has never quite felt that she fits in, by keeping her distance from her team members she has caused a rift, the rift grows bigger as Luke's article brings an enemy from her past into her present. Jazz has to open up about who she is in order to save those she cares about.

I really enjoyed this one, lots of angst and tension and the characters are intriguing. Like most first in series books it was the secondary characters that kept catching my attention and I can't wait for their turn in the spotlight. The parts that stood out for me where Jazz, having cast a female in a typically male profession and having her succeed was inspirational. The Montgomery family on a whole, I enjoyed the glimpses into their lives an their interactions and Joy. I enjoyed her presence in the story.

I found Emily Durante to be just ok with the delivery of the story. Nick Podehl read one of the other books in the series and he was much better. i hope they stick him in future books.

Having said that I was entertained and overall the book scored a sold 4 stars.

Story if a woman sniper and cop

I hate that the author made Jazz a wimpy crybaby. For goodness sake she is a sniper and a cop!! The author makes her into a weak woman who needs a man to take care of her!Also the narrator gives her voice a child like sound that is definitely not what you would hear from a woman who is a cop!!

Great story, poorly executed

This audio book is a great story poorly executed. The story has a great foundation but the dialogue is so trite and corny it ruins much of what could have been great. In the same fashion the narrative could have been great if not for the squeaky and overly gruff attempts at different voices that change throughout the book. If I could ask one thing though, it would be that the narrator never attempt a laugh or a baby voice again while being recorded. The non dialogue narrative is great though, and I’d love to hear something from Emily out of a third person genre. As for the author, I feel her dialogue will get better as she continues and I’m looking forward to seeing her progress from good, to great.

OK book

A little slow at times. Liked all of the characters, and will read the second book to see how the Montgomery 's proceed. Jazz was as strong sniper, but sort of a weak woman. Unexpected more out of her to have the job she had.

I love suspense romance novels

I wish I had liked jasmine a bit more but honestly, even though the story was good and the suspense was prevalent, I just couldn’t care what really happened to her. The narrator was pretty good but too much of a Canadian (??) accent for a story based in Colorado.

The pair team up to solve who is behind Jazz’s stalking as well as find the dirty cop. Will they get out off this investigation alive?

Great Story. Great Mystery

Didn't expect such a good story. The mystery of the bad person kept me fooled.

The narrator was perfect

Female sniper & ex military journalist

A Romantic Suspense with a female sniper and an ex military journalist, throw in a S.W.A.T. team, some cops , a little girl and a psycho and you have an exciting story. I liked Jazz, she had a shady past but had done so much to better herself and she continued her personal growth throughout the story. I was a little surprised that her shady past hadn't come up during the background checks that would have been required to become a sniper, but I'm happy to look the other way because this is fiction and it makes for a great story. The romance was full of tension and steamy. The suspense kept me guessing.

I used Whispersync and swapped between the ebook and the audiobook. I enjoyed the audio more because the narrator was pleasant to listen to and was great at characterisation. She was able to give an authentic feel to each of the characters, ranging from a 3 year old girl to an alpha male.
