Publisher's Summary

McKay-Taggart operative Riley Blade has no intention of returning to Los Angeles after his brief stint as a consultant on mega-star Lyle Tarpin’s latest action flick. Not even for Natasha Black, Tarpin’s sexy personal assistant who’d gotten under his skin. Why would he, when Tasha made it absolutely clear that - attraction or not - she wasn’t interested in a fling, much less a relationship.

But when Riley learns that someone is stalking her, he races to her side. Determined to not only protect her, but to convince her that - no matter what has hurt her in the past - he’s not only going to fight for her, he’s going to win her heart. Forever.

The Lexi Blake Crossover Collection features a new novel by Lexi Blake and five books by some of her favorite writers: Close Cover by Lexi Blake, Her Guardian Angel by Larissa Ione, Justify Me by J. Kenner, Say You Won't Let Go by Corinne Michaels, His to Protect by Carly Phillips, and Rescuing Sadie by Susan Stoker.

Nice Suspenseful and Romantic Novella ☺

My 1st novella of J. Kenner and I enjoyed it immensely. I've always enjoy stories on "The Whodunnit" and with adding romance to it makes it even better. "Justify Me" definitely filled my appetite and hitting both on the suspense and on the romance + giving me the HEA that I always look for in the end.

Narration was weird

I generally don't write reviews, but this one I had to say something about. It was a good Stark story and I really liked it, but the narration was weird. I really didn't like a male voice narrate a female part. At times, it got confusing as to whose point of view it was. When a female narrates both parts, they can make their voice different enough to know who is speaking, but a rich, deep male voice for the whole thing just confused me. His voice and narration were awesome for the male part, just not the female part.

Too short and not really a blend of the Taggert/Stark world!

Of all of the novels, in this project. This novella blended the least, with the original series. The main characters from the Stark series, were not only involved; most weren’t even mentioned. Basically, J Kenner just used the setting, from her series, and had a few interactions, on the edges with her characters. Therefore, it didn’t really come across as a true blending of the two series. It was just an Ok short story. Had this not been part of the Romance package, I would want a refund.

Narrator sucked

The story is not bad, but the people all sounded the same. It would have been better if there was a difference between females and males.

Tense switch frustration

I didn't love this one. The main female's narrative was done in the present tense, and the main dude's was in past tense. I found that so distracting that it was really difficult to stay immersed in the story.

Although other reviewers mentioned they didn't like Ryan West's reading, I actually thought it was good, and the tense switching was what I didn't like.

The storyline overall was okayish, though somewhat unbelievable as a part of the MT world (showing up to the club already dressed, somehow being able to afford beachfront property in Malibu)...maybe it was just that it didn't seem well researched? I'd still listen to it to not miss out on a MT storyline, but I wish I would have been more mentally prepared that it would be one to slog through.

Good concise story with terrible narration

Ryan West is normally a pretty good narrator but he did a terrible job with this audio book. For large sections of this book it is difficult to determine if it is the hero or heroine who is speaking except for the fact that the heroine speaks in 1st person. I am surprised that this was released this way however since it is in the Romance Package it cost nothing more than the monthly subscription. This is also a clear example of why duet narration is a solution for these types of struggling performances.
The story was concise and a decent read so the ebook is a better choice for this story.
