Publisher's Summary

Romance, lust, suspense, and uncensored scenes.

Darcy Campbell was a laid-off Chicago music teacher who took a job playing at a piano bar out of desperation. She’d had a run of bad luck and was already having another bad day...but it turned disastrous when she was the only witness to a mass murder. She watched in horror as her boss, his son, and other employees were gunned down before her eyes.

The police promised to protect her identity if she testified against the monsters who had committed the massacre. But her name somehow was discovered, and threats immediately fired in her direction. Detective Nick Baker promised to protect her, and when things got hot, he hid her away in his cabin in the backwoods of Wisconsin. Darcy wasn’t sure what the bigger danger was - the killer hunting her or falling in love with the man who vowed to protect her. 

She couldn’t love a police officer. She refused to love a police officer. It was nearly impossible to resist him, though, with his intense, silver eyes and brawny body. He was like a drug, addictive and sinfully potent. Somehow, she needed to protect her heart from him while he protected her from the deranged killers. 

Was she brave enough to confront both dangers? 

Nick is the first audiobook in the steamy Brothers in Blue series.

Warning - These stories contain steamy scenes and are not suitable for all ages. Meant for ages 18-plus.

Great short story and start to the series!

I have a love/hate relationship with short stories. On one hand, I like that I can listen in one sitting (I like to listen at 1.5 speed) On the other hand, I want more! :) Great introduction to this family, good suspense, action and romance / tension. I'm hoping that we get to meet much more of the family in future books. Narration was good!

Nick and Darcy


As this book starts Darcy is working at a piano bar, to make ends meet whilst looking for a more permanent position as a music teacher. Three very attractive guys come into the bar and one requests that she plays an Elvis song "Can't Help Falling In Love" as she plays it she becomes lost in the music so she closes her eyes but when she opened them the men had gone.

After she finishes work that night she is in the ladies room when she hears gunshots, she looks out in time to see every member of staff being shot dead by a cartel hit man. When she calls 911 to report it the police officer who turns up to investigate is Nick, the guy who earlier requested her to play the Elvis song. Darcy, she is able to recognize the killer from police 'mug shots' only to find out that this is not his first kill but that no witness has ever made it to court.

Although Darcy agrees to testify, a brave thing to do, she has no idea that the hitman will be able to find her and when an attempt is made on her life she and Nick go into hiding in a remote cabin in the woods. Whist at the cabin her feelings for Nick start to deepen but Darcy has always had a rule she will never date or marry a policeman. Why you ask - well when she was a teen her father, also a policeman, was killed in the line of duty and her mother went to pieces totally ruining the rest of her life and also Darcy's childhood.

Nick is a cop, as are his brothers and his sisters as well as his own father so as far as Darcy is concerned HE IS OFF LIMITS but their attraction grows! As the story developed I did feel that a woman strong enough to testify against a killer should be strong enough to love someone, even if he is a cop.

The story is told totally from Darcy's perspective, which I admit is not my favorite, I like to know how each person is feeling but that said I did enjoy listening to this one. Although I had previously bought and read the book, I did find listening to it to be a much nicer experience the narrator, Lissa Blackwell did a wonderful job with it. I'm not going to say more because of spoilers but I would like to listen to Nick's brothers' stories if they ever get to audio.

I received this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

A Good Boy Sexy Short

Don’t expect Nick to be the troubled past bad boy. He’s a cop from a family of good men. The beginning disaster seemed so rushed that it took away from the sheer magnitude of the incident. There wasn’t any connection to the people so I felt little remorse. But it was good that there wasn’t instant puffy hearts seeping from either Darcy or Nick upon their first meeting. When the danger picked up they found their lives joined in hiding. Which lead to joining in other ways, even though Darcy has a reason not to fall for a cop.

A sexy, steamy short story. Narration was spot on for the female voices but I didn’t care much for her male renditions.

👏🏻 Applause for entertaining me for 3 hours.

A Steamy Listen

Oh my, oh my, oh my!! A man in uniform rescuing a damsel in distress! Yeah, it's a great story with some steam! I really enjoyed listening to this book and thought it was well written with great character development. It's exciting from beginning to end. I think this is a great start to a new series and am looking forward to hearing about the other two brothers!! The narration was good as far as voices go but I felt like Lissa Blackwell needed to read it a time or two more before recording. She does add to the story but I feel like it could have been a bit better. Overall, an excellent story with good narration, well worth your time!

Short and Hot!

Simone Carter definitely delivered a short and steamy story! I was immediately pulled into this romantic suspense book. Nick is definitely more than a hot cop with a big heart. I thought the author started this Brothers in Blue series with great characters. I look forward to hearing more of his siblings. Lissa Blackwell did a great performance. She added the right emotions and had distinguishable voices for the various characters. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Great Romantic Suspense!

This is the first book in the Brothers in Blue Series. This is a short Romantic Suspense. I like short stories! The plot is interesting, suspenseful and kept my attention from the first page to the end. This story is well developed despite its length. Darcy is a strong and sweet woman. Nick is a handsome detective who protects her after she received threats. He's handsome, gentleman and very protective. Their chemistry is strong. I love their HEA. The secondary characters are also interesting and I hope to see them again in the other books in the Series. I can't wait to listen to thes stories of Nick's Brothers. The narration was great. Lissa Blackwell has a sweet voice, easy to listen. I enjoyed my listening. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Yummy Policeman

Who wouldn't want a hot sexy policeman in protective mode? No idea? Me either.

Poor Darcy is in one hell of a pickle but luckily Nick is more than willing to protect her, and the chemistry? Hot, really hot!

But things are far from easy with a mob connected murder trying to prevent Darcy from testifying against him. It also doesn't help that Darcy is convinced that falling for a policeman will inevitably bring loss, so the romance is far from smooth sailing.

There's a good balance of romance and fun with tension and worry, I'd listen to it again.

The delivery is well done, good pacing and the character voices were great.

Everyone loves a man in blue

Darcy swears she will never fall for a police officer, but can she hold out against a sexy cop?

Lissa Blackwell is the perfect choice to narrate this audible.

narrated perfectly , worth a listen

I loved the narrator in this , she really told the story well even the male parts were told really well , the only downside to the story was all the work up to keeping Darcy safe from a criminal and then when things actually happened we heard nothing else after , it was a bit like that part of the story had just dropped off and was forgotten , it was still a good story but I would have liked a bit more , glad Nick and Darcy finally worked things out tho
worth a listen

Short, sweet and action-packed!

Simone Carter is quite adept at writing sexy, action-packed, romantic stories that cut out the superfluous details that can weigh a plot down. Nick and Darcy's story literally starts with heated eye contact and speeds up from there. Their connection literally parallels the level of danger that surrounds them.

Of course, boy meets girl, girl is in danger, boy saves girl is too unsophisticated for this story. There is an element of that basic plot structure but also so much more, including bacon grease, a skillet, sneaky friends and a seemingly insurmountable personal history.

This audiobook is easy to listen to and entertaining from start to finish. Lissa Blackwell has a pleasant narrative voice as well.
