I was usually save my credits for more expensive books, but I'm glad I got this one, it's a sweet story with lots of emotion, If your looking for hot sex, keep looking, but if you want a satisfying story with a great narrator this is it. I will be looking for more from this author! One thing though, it's a bit unbelievable how much havoc one lady and a kid can wreak on one mans life. I think I would have told her to get lost several times along the way! but if you can suspend belief as easily as I can It's an enjoyable read.

Superb narration. No complaints on that score. As for the story, it's your typical romantic suspense. I'd give the text about 3.5 or 4 stars. It's enjoyable, entertaining, and somewhat heartwarming, even though fairly extreme, with some plot holes.
I figured out the villain's identity easily and quickly. The author makes everything clear. Not much guesswork needed to comprehend the plot or predict what will happen next. No surprises.
I liked the scenes with the Mongomery brothers teaming up to fight the baddies. Happy to see Zach reunited into the clan. Good scenes with their mother, Anna. The SWOT team sniper, Jasmine, from book 1, plays a small role, too.
Decent romantic relationship development. One sex scene, at about 75% into the story. I liked the hero and heroine, but they both carried around too much guilt and regret. Personally, I grow bored with internal rumination, especially when it's focused on past regrets.
Lots of scenes center around the five year old boy, Sam. If you don't like children in the story, this is not for you. Personally, I do like kids, if done well. Sam's dialogue and characterization is fairly believable here, but not quite right.
Some basic swearing, but not very much, and little or no profanity. One sex scene. Some beatings, violence, and bloody murder.

I just couldn’t finish this one. Don’t waste your money or time. I think it was the worst audio book I have ever purchased.
Well, this is the 2nd book in the series's, and without a doubt fantastically written. The narrator was awesome. Absolutely !oved it. Can't wait to listen to book 3!
So happy with the author's talent and storyline. Kept me on the edge of my seat. Self-doubt, A torture heart, and a life of lies and deceit. A strong women and man to boot. Lots of explosive chemistry and more explosive action!
Just wanted to again thank this talented author for my hours of listening enjoyment with a fabulous narrator. Aloha and hugs.☺💖👍
Really enjoyed this book and so far both books in the series. It's rapid pace and continually developing story line kept me riveted. Couldn't stop until I finished the book. The narrator did an excellent job on the characters, from a small child to a foreign accent, each character was easily distinguishable. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! Can't wait to read the next in the Montgomery brothers series!!
My first book from this author and I wasn't disappointed. It had action, suspense, and enough romance without making it cheesy. Onto to the next book in this series.
This book is part of a series but can be listened to as a stand alone. The main premise is a bit far fetched-movie star is actually a spy using movie shoots to other countries as cover-but that's why they call it fiction, right? The main female character is on the run from an abusive husband who's also a hit man who found out she had betrayed him to the FBI. She has an adorable son who has the sweetest relationship with the hero-hard to resist a guy who loves your kid. There are quite a number of people after these two both individually and as a couple which makes for fast moving non stop action and lots of explosions! It was nice to see the hero's family again(from previous book) and catch up with them and anticipate whose book will be next. The romance in this is sweet and the h/h have great chemistry and not too graphic sex. If you like romance with a side order of spine tingling suspense and an international cast of bad guys (and some good ones, too) you will enjoy this book.
Nick Podehl was outstanding with the delivery of the story.

Loved this book. A lot of the lower reviews didn't like it because it wasn't "believable." Really? Do we really have to have a FICTIONAL mystery/romance NOVEL be believable? If I want believable I'll just pop over to the non-fiction. I know a lot of you don't like the "jumping around" but I do. I get tired of just the hero and heroine being on every single page and reading all about their angsty feelings all the time.<br/>I liked the few minutes of Khalid, that murderous creep. And Farzam, that insane creep. The attempt by the two pilots. The time spent with that killer Brad Walters. All this helped to keep me turning pages to see what would happen next.<br/>All the Montgomery's, Zach, Gabe, Seth, Luke, Jazz, Caleb and Anna were fantastic. And I was so happy for John and Anna, too.<br/>Zach and Jenna were an awesome twosome and I thought Sam acted like any normal 5 year old.<br/>So, I'm off to read Gabe's story, Game of Fear. I know I'll like it as much as I did this one. <br/>Oh, and this had just enough sexual tention and sex to make it a really good read.<br/><br/>As to the narrator: Mr. Podehl did a fantastic job. Not once did I cringe when he did a female's voice. I would definitely listen to him again.<br/>
