Publisher's Summary

The secret is out....

The secret investigative group that Tate Carlisle works with has just discovered a major piece to the puzzle. Those responsible for trying to steer the governments of the world from the shadows are slowly being unmasked. While Tate has never stepped on a battlefield, she is most definitely in for the fight of her life.

Tate's new job as White House press secretary puts her in the line of fire from all sides. When she finds herself falling for her boss, the president of the United States, Tate is torn between her job, her duty, and her heart. She decides to put all of the cards on the table in a gamble that could end everything she has worked toward her whole life.

Tate finds herself deep in the secret world of payoffs, affairs, and a battle for the soul of the United States. Split-second decisions are now a matter of life and death...but will the next lead story be about her death or those she cares about?

Outstanding - Narration - Suspense - Story!

Dang, I wasn’t really a big fan of book one and wasn’t going to pick up book two but it was under political for a challenge I am doing and thought oh why not.

Well, it only gets hotter and more mysterious. But I loved how the story unfolded and we kind of had two love stories. We get all the characters we love from book one but with so much more.

From the Mr. President to the press secretary to Ex FBI agents, and so much more you’re thrown into the action and you can’t help but keep listening because each piece is just enough to make you want more.

Oh and we can’t forget the narration Therese Plummer KILLS it so freaking good.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Great performance and story!!!

Thus was an exceptional audio book. The Narrator was absolutely rivetting and the story had me on the edge of my seat. An-t wait for the next instalment in the series!!

Awesome read and almost awesome narration..



Wow! The first book introduced all the players, well, most of them, and it showed what kick-butt agents of the President, Lizzy and Dalton were but this book got down to the nitty-gritty. All the bad guys they rounded up, or killed, though still not the "spider" yet. Everyone was just amazing.

And then there was the love story that came about, not only between Lizzy and Dalton, but between Tate, the press secretary, that went from being an airhead beauty queen to being a real asset to the team, and bachelor President Birch Stratton. It was there but neither love story overpowered the true story.

There were a couple of real surprises, that’s for sure. People you thought were bad that turned out OK and people you just knew were good that turned out to be just the opposite.

This was as great as the first one and I hope to hell we don’t have to wait a year for the next book since this was such a BIG cliffhanger. (Just checked and the next book will be out in October. UGH!)

I’m not going to fill this one with all kinds of spoilers like I did the first one. I can only encourage you to read them if you’re looking for a romantic suspense.

There was foreplay, without sexual tension, then fade-to-black. It kind of all fit together just fine. And the F-bomb was used 19 times.

As to the narration: Therese Plummer is almost perfect. Needs to lower her voice a little more for the men but her emotions are absolutely awesome.

Not as good as Book 1

This book is more about Tate than Lizzie, which made it less exciting for me. There are too many characters in it and it's hard to keep them straight, especially when all the men have such short choppy names like Trip, Snip, Flint, Fitz, Crew, Brock, Brent, Birch... Plus the plot is silly, and the President is not a bit presidential.

Worth the credit :-)

I'm quite satisfied with the closure of several key issues. Nice series. Recommend to those who want more of a story.

Great!

I enjoyed listening to Therese Plummer narration. I'm glad she's narrating all 3 stories. This has been an exciting, edge of ur seat type series.
I'm anxious to see if I was right in the "who done it" in the next audio book " Shatthered Lies" , # 3. I highly recommend this series! 😁

Fantastic suspense

This is the second book of the series and it was full of surprises and suspense galore, awesome twists and turns and love all rolled into the mix.

Now I’m needing to find out what happened to Val so I’m onto the next fix, umm, book 🤓
I’m also so used to Therese’s voice doing all the characters that I hope she is on the next book too.

Intriguing story

Intriguing story with well-developed characters
And timely content. It does have a suspenseful story line but also includes a very nice romance.
