Publisher's Summary

This case may prove to be too hot to handle.

There's silver out there: Sabrina Eckhart is sure of it. And when she finds the hidden mine on that big piece of West Texas desert, all of her financial problems are solved. That is, if she can find it. The man with the skills she needs is private investigator Alex Justice - a former navy fighter pilot and a current pain in the neck.

When mysterious "accidents" start to plague their search, it seems Rina's multi-acre inheritance might be more a curse than a blessing. And yet, there's still something sensual about the heat…his arrogance…her stubbornness…being thrust into each other's arms by danger…. But the vultures are circling, and if they don't watch their backs, the relentless desert sun could be the last thing Rina and Alex ever see.

Love, love, love this series!!

Would you listen to Against the Odds again? Why?

Absolutely - the plot was interesting and the characters were well written.

Any additional comments?

One of the main things I really like about this series, is that although the characters are connected, each story is it's own and doesn't depend on the other books to build the story. To me, this series gets better with each book - that's the mark of a keeper!

Good

I'm not sure why this wasn't included in the Romance package bcuz this audio book was just as good as the orher books in this series. More suspense, more story lines and yes a trigger of child abuse/kidnapping/pedophile that ended well. All n All a good listen.

Same Story Different Day

Although Kat seems to be stuck on boys meets girl, boy girl decide to not love, boy and girl fall hopelessly in love - she still tells a great story. I kept holding my breath waiting for the next twist and being surprised when it happened. I have enjoyed all in this series to this point and are planning to enjoy the next ones. Waiting for Kat to extend the Brodie series, I am sure the couples or all of the brothers can find trouble and intrigue.

Kat Martin's series " The Raines of Wind Canyon"

Would you listen to Against the Odds again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to the entire series again, all 7 books. Beautiful romances & stories which leave you wanting to know more of the relationship of these former Marines. The books were filled with mystery, investigations and new romances.

Have you listened to any of Jack Garrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to many of Jack Garrett's performances, such as all the books by Linda Miller that he performs for, and I have many more in my library, that I am eager to hear.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

lots of smiles and a few teary eyes at time, but it was a wonderful read.

Any additional comments?

I hope Kat Martin is not finished with this series, I would love to hear more...and narriated by Jack Garrett, of course.
