An enemies to lovers romance suspense!

This is Book 1 in a four book series that must be read in the series order. Georgia is a young detective working for CID in New Scotland Yard. Working as a female detective she has to face Male Misogyny and hold her own. Her new boss is handsome and downright hot, but us appeal is spoiled by his attitude towards her. He has something again her from the very start. Together they must team up to hunt down a dangerous serial killer. This was well written and engaging. The world building was compelling and the book ends on a cliffhanger, setting the scene for book 2. Crystal Crockett's narration was smooth and her accent was easy to understand.

This was a good story

Right up front, I don't care for Romance books. I was skeptical when I got this. I was surprised. I actually liked it. The story was good & the narrator did a great job. I will have to check out #2.

A fast connection with a cliffhanger

Georgia is a young police officer who can hold her own quite well on the force. When Walker becomes her new boss, he is immediately turned off by her, though, because her dad is the chief (or the British equivalent), and he thinks he’s dealing with nepotism and not skill. As they are forced to work closely together on a serial killer case, he soon figures out that she is very capable in her job, but that he also is falling for her and wants to protect her. He’s pretty much a complete misogynist and jerk in the beginning, and it took a bit to warm up to him, even after he started changing his tone towards Georgia, but eventually I got on board with the relationship. Since this is book one of a 4 part series, it’s a quick read, and has a cliffhanger ending that will lead well into the next book.

A good cliffhanger serial.

This is the first book in the series and ends on a cliffhanger. A tall, sharp one! I listened to this book on Audible. The female narrator did a good job performing even the male parts. She is a easy listen and didn't over emote. This story of a female cop and her new boss was very entertaining. Their snarky bantering with obvious attraction makes for a fun read. With murder, danger, mysterious notes, stabbing and stubbornness, attraction, and caring, I recommend this book, if you want to read a series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from Story Origin.

good, but would have been better with 2 narrators

The story and the characters are interesting, and the narrator did a good job with the male voices. I don't understand why the choice here was to use only 1 narrator, instead of 2 - for the male and the female POVs. I would like to read more of these two detectives. I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Worth the read

Uggg! Cliffhangers will be the death of me! Had I known this ended in the cliffhanger I would have skipped it. This book is so short, it is a bit ridiculous it was split into 2 books. That being said, I’ve been sucked in and will be continuing on. Because it is a fabulous read (or listen). I love Georgia and Trent! The start of their story is action packed, fun and sweet. Georgia is a tough, workaholic cop, who falls for her new boss. As this book is very much British, I assume it isn’t as much of an issue on that side of the pond. It isn’t at all taboo for them to be together. Georgia doesn’t want anyone to put themselves in danger to help her. Trent wants to protect her at all costs. The narration is good. Crystal does great job at reading both povs. Overall I highly recommend.

More Please

Holy cow! I need more! This was awesome, the story, the plot and the romance kept you guessing. Be advised that is ends with the cliff hanger that will leave you broken in pieces. I enjoyed the whole story and the narrator did an awesome job with the performance. You have a sassy lady and a dominating man they hate each other but you know there is a thin line between love and hate. It is definitely worth the listen. I received a free copy of this audiobook from Story Origin for an honest review.

Detective Sargent Kentley & Her DCI

The story... let's start there. I loved it! The characters are brazen, a bit arrogant, and well written. The story starts with a VERY awkward scene and a little slow but things are just warming up. One maniac followed by another took the plot through twists and turns that kept me engaged. The workplace relationship between Georgia and Walker heats up as does Georgia's defiance of the men in her life, sometimes putting her safety in jeopardy. The cliffhanger is just plain mean (mostly because I hate cliffhangers). I need to know what comes next! Onto the narration. Crystal Crockett has a great voice for narration. She has great enunciation and pace. So why my lower rating? The book is set in London with constant references to The Yard / Scotland Yard, making it hard to forget that it isn't set in the American South and Crystal definitely has a Southern accent. I really like it but not for this book.

Wow

I came upon this when I won an ebook from Hanleigh Bradley and love it. It has wonderful characters, strong female MC, lots of intrigue and good story line. Narration was great and I cannot wait to hear book 2. It was a short listen but I couldn't stop listening. I definitely will be checking out other books by the offer.

Really intriguing police romance

This was an excellent book with a very interesting plot and well developed characters. The police work is realistic feeling and keeps you thoroughly engrossed. The cliffhanger is steep and leaves a hell of a book hangover but hopefully the next book is out now or will be soon.
