Publisher's Summary

Ryan O'Conner has the world at her fingertips. She's strong, feisty and has everything she's ever wanted, except the right man. Jared Blake represents everything Ryan doesn't want. He's controlling, overbearing and now he's moving. Having had a crush on him for years, Ryan decides to seduce Jared. A goodbye thing. However, her plans change when someone starts stalking her. With her life on the line, she turns to Jared for protection and finds the not so perfect man is the perfect man for her.

Restless and bored, NY State Trooper Jared Blake accepts a transfer from his position in Lake George, NY. Jared craves the rush of adrenaline and his current post is too tame. As soon as he moves, his career will take off, but his plans are put on hold when a friend is threatened by a stalker. Jared has exactly two weeks to find out who is behind these threats. And in two weeks, Jared will lose his heart forever...

This is my 1st book by the author & I'm hooked!

Ryan loves her small town of Lake George, NY, loves her job...and has had a longtime crush on her landlord/neighbor/brother's best friend, Jared, With Jared moving away to accept a promotion, what better time to get him out of her system? NY State Troop, Jared has always resisted his feelings for his best friend's sister. She has been through a lot in her young life and he wishes her well...now if he could only resist her advances for his last 2 weeks in town... Except, when a stalker sets his eye on Ryan, Jared's protective nature kicks in...big time! Can Jared keep Ryan safe and continue to deny his feelings? Will Ryan admit that what she feels for Jared is more than lust? Fast paced story with great plot line. Looking forward to the stories of the other state troopers!

A great narrator can elevate a bad book...

...a bad or mediocre narrator can't do a thing for a bad or mediocre book.

I don’t often fail to finish a book, but this is definitely one of those that I could not finish.

The story itself is one we’ve seen before. It can be done well, but it doesn’t quite get there for me. The FMC consistently asks the MMC “Why?” and then tells him that he doesn’t answer her questions. It’s done so much so that it’s a thing. The FMC also asserts often how she is an adult and not a child, but it’s hard to tell that from the book. Yes, she has a good job, but it doesn’t feel like she’s earned it.

My dissatisfaction came from the narrator. She was just the wrong person for this book. Right away you hear how crisp her Ts are. Enunciation is grand if you’re doing Shakespeare, but if you’re reading dialogue coming out of a 23-year-old’s mouth, it doesn’t fit. So she's got an old lady's voice with a young person's words, and she still can't resolve in the middle to be a convincing 23-year-old.

This narrator was also not good at making the different character voices sound different. That doesn't always have to be there for an interesting audiobook, but when other things are failing this is just another "sin."

After about 3 hours into the audio, I had to stop. I was going to try to finish because I did pay for this title and I try to get my money's worth... but I couldn't do it. There are other books I have ready to go that I am sure will be more worthy of my time.
