And as the case escalates into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, it turns out Ashley isn't the only one with something to hide.
If neither can trust the other with their secrets, how can they trust each other with their hearts?
This was a great story, I really enjoyed every bit of it.
I liked Lucas and Ashley together, they had some good chemistry and there were a couple of hot and steamy sex scenes, not erotica just steamy.
The story line and plot was great. There was murder, human trafficking, serious bad guys and a bit of mystery. Lots of action with the FBI and BAU trying to catch the bad guys.
A couple characters from the previous books like Alex Parker and Mallory.
As for the narration... Well it's Eric Dove! Which means it was excellent! He is one of the best male narrators ever! Love him. He does the women's voices so well, and he has an amazing reading voice!

Another addition to the FBI series from an author who knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat! You won't want to put this down until the very end.
This book is the story of Lucas Randall, Ashley Chen and the trafficking of sex slaves. Some of the details are disturbing but need to be. This is a fight every step of the way to find the clues that will lead them to the criminals they both want to put behind bars. Their attraction is immediate and they try to ignore it but it is a losing battle. It's not all roses and some lines will be crossed that could well destroy the fledgling relationship. Lucas & Ashley will have to use every tool at their disposal to fight these near ghosts and to find their own hea. Eric G Dove is amazing as the narrator for this series. I'm looking forward to the next in this series.

What made the experience of listening to Cold Secrets the most enjoyable?
Cold Secrets is the seventh fast-paced romantic suspense book in the Cold Justice series written by one of my favorite authors, Toni Anderson. I received a complimentary audible book for a fair review from the author. Great narration and storyline. I highly recommend it.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Ashley Chen. She is a dedicated and patriotic FBI agent.
Have you listened to any of Eric G. Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, the ending was especially poignant.

Always a delight to hear another story in this series.
I’ve been waiting for Lucas to find his love. I was happy with the story and the fact that it wasn’t apparent as to who was the mole in the agency leaking out the information.
Really happy that the two youngest were saved from the Asian gang and able to return back to mostly a regular life?
A pretty good read. I almost guessed the whole plot before I read it, but I love a happy ending, and these books always promise it.
Absolutely loved this audio book!! This narrator is one of my absolute favorites to listen to!!
I loved the beginning of this book. It was thoroughly exciting from Lucas entering the brothel to the explosion that killed so many. Though I didn’t feel the least bit sorry that the madam was killed, but I was glad he saved the two young girls.
Also, I just finished a book about two pedophiles just before this one then opened this to see it was the same kind of story, only a little worse. This one is about human trafficking involving kids AND about the bad guy, Yu Chang who’s 73, who was so excited because the niece who had faked her own death is still alive and he wants to screw her so badly. YUCK! And the computer nerd who works for the bad guy was repeatedly raping the 13 year old girl who had been held in captivity for 2 years, after her mother gave her to them to pay off a gambling debt. Again, YUCK! This was working on being good story for a while but I was beginning to think it was a little too much for me. I just wanted to get off the kids and screwing the niece and onto something else.
When I finished this book I was so glad it was over, and even though I’ve read 12 or 14 of Ms. Anderson’s books this would not be one of my favorites of hers. It was just too, too much about child rape, child sex slaves, child abuse; you were beat over the head with it constantly.
Plus, at 92% Lucas was sooo in love with Ashley but he was still arguing with himself about whether or not he really trusted her. Really?
And there was soooo much prejudice going on around Ashley it was utterly ridiculous. Jeez, how long have American men been marrying Asian women without any problem whatsoever? You’d have thought Ashley had just came over from China and been flagged as a spy instead of her being an FBI agent for the past several years. The remarks about and to Ashley made the book less enjoyable.
The bad guys, Yu Chang, Andrew, Brandon and Rabbit were some of the most evil men I’ve ever read about so Ms. Anderson did do a good job with the evil-doers. Who all got what they deserved at the end.
There were a couple of explicit sex scenes in this and the F-bomb was used 64 times.
As to the narration: Eric Dove is awesome! With voices and emotions.

Cold Justice Book Seven.
Ashley Chen is very aware that she looks young for an agent and her Asian heritage doesn't help her avoid stereotyping, but she is sick of being underestimated. When Lucas Randall joins the ranks of those who don't believe in her skills, she is determined to set him straight. However, she knows there is a fine line between Lucas seeing her for herself, and betraying her true identity to the world. When Lucas is sent into a brothel only to have it blown, Ashley knows that her past is coming back to catch her. Can she trust Lucas, or is he working for the very people she has been running from?
If you've been waiting for Randall's story, you will not be disappointed!
As always, Eric G. Dove captures the personalities and voices of each individual character without going overboard.
Deep characters, a story that keeps you guessing, and a hero to make you swoon.
