Publisher's Summary

Bookstore owner Kerry Emerson finally seems to be back in control of her life. Her failure of a marriage firmly in her rearview mirror and her recent business expansion a success, she is in charge of her own future. One that is looking better than ever. 

The sight of the tall man, with the familiar salt-and-pepper goatee pushing open the door of her store, sets her hair on end. He doesn't exactly bring good memories. 

FBI Special Agent in Charge Damian Gomez is just looking for a decent cup of coffee when he walks into the small store offering books and brew. The pretty, feisty woman behind the counter is an unexpected surprise. Not at all unpleasant, especially since her finger that used to hold a wedding ring is now bare. 

Her wild hair, boho style, and silvery grey eyes suddenly hold a lot of promise.

But when his office is pulled into an international investigation into the trafficking of rare books and manuscripts, the straight-laced SAC realizes he has to keep his distance from the woman who might well be involved.

Easier said than done, since fate seems determined to throw them together.

Other than that I like the book.

Keeping 6

Absolutely loved this book! The fact that it’s the beginning of a series is perfect. The characters and the plot, with its twists and turns, are excellent. My first Freya barker book and at the beginning of a wonderful relationship!

Great new series!

Kerry has just opened up her 2nd bookstore and is enjoying her new found freedom, after a disastrous marriage. At the age of 42, she doesn’t believe that love is in the cards for her anymore...until she meets broody FBI SAC, Damian Gomez. Unfortunately, he suspects that she may be involved in a ring of rare book thefts. As the pair grow close, Damian realizes that Kerry is just a pawn but can he keep her safe long enough to prove that love IS possible after 40? Love that this series is focusing on mature characters...a refreshing change from the 20 & 30 somethings.

I couldn't even make it through 2 chapters

the narrators totally stink!
Muffy's cadence of speech is just something I can't listen to.
Fox isn't that great either.

Kerry and Damian

Keeping 6 is an exciting, intriguing and thrilling.. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. Kerry and Damian went through so much and their journey was highly suspenseful but the bond, connection, and chemistry was absolutely beautiful. I enjoyed every single mysterious second of this book. Christian Fox is always fantastic but add in Muffy Newtown and that just made this audio so much better. Simply perfect!

Fantastic Book

What a great book. Lots of unexpected, some laughs, and a great plot that holds interest throughout. I have a new favorite author to add to my list.

The narration was fantastic.

Unnecessary vulgar language

I am not a prude but hearing the F word and others many times in the initial few minutes turned me off from listening any further.

3.5 star story and narration

Think this is worth use of free credit for genre. enjoyed the bit of mystery/suspense as the context for the relationship development, and enjoy that leads aren't in their 20s - but mature people with careers, who gave to figure out a relationship between independent adults. Male narrator was great, largely nailed it. Female was okay - found she often gets the emotional tone wrong for when narrating male voice, and am just not keen on her style of delivery. She has also gone by name of Erin Mallon, and I avoided all books narrated by her after st 2 experiences, has weird/irritating way of ending sentences, often drawn out and dropping at same time. not quite as bad as earlier books, maybe why she is using different name now - I also speed it up, so might help with that.
