Publisher's Summary

Two scarred souls: one physically, one mentally. Both on the mend, hiding from their pasts....

Mace Walker can't wait to get home.

Being buried deep undercover for the past two years, on the most complex case of his career, has torn him down physically and mentally. Now the FBI agent has come home to recover after having his leg badly injured from a gunshot wound. Arriving home late one night, his relief is short-lived as he's faced with a stranger pointing a gun to his head, acting like he is the one who doesn't belong there!

Colby Parks, a biochemist at the local university, had come to town a year earlier to escape an abusive relationship. She vows never to put herself in that situation again.

Then the perfect opportunity comes along: housesitting for Mace's sister while making the house she purchased habitable. But she couldn't anticipate this big snag: the one wearing the tight Levi's and worn leather jacket, looking like he had just escaped prison.

Being forced to share a house creates sparks between them in more ways than one. However, things take a turn when their pasts catch up to them, threatening to pull them apart forever.

Note: This book was previously published under the title Banged Up but has been re-edited for this release.

Mace and Colby!

Mace is an undercover FBI agent who was injured on his last assignment however the emotional damage runs much deeper so all he wants to do is see his sister and get some well deserved rest and relaxation.

Colby moved to town a year ago after escaping an abusive relationship. She has been staying at her friend’s house while she is away as renovations are being completed on her home. After her past, she is not about to trust any man who comes to her door so she greets him with a gun.

As they live together their chemistry grows until it ignites but will they open up and trust each other before it is too late?

This is a great story of two people who are damaged by their pasts but together they help each other heal. I thought the narrator did a great job of bringing the story to life. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book from the author.

Great story!

Damaged is a steam story about Mace an undercover agent and Colby a biochemist. Love the way the author brought these two together and the intense emotions they felt at that moment. The narrator really brought Mace and Colby's story to life. Great writing, believable characters and off the charts chemistry make this a 5-star book.

Completely loved this book!

Another fantastic book by Jeanne St. James! The plot and characters were strong and very well written. I really liked Mace and Colby's story. The narrator did a great job with both male and female parts, even though I'm still getting used to that.

Love This Narration

B.B. Franklin did an incredible job narrating this twisty, suspenseful romance that had me wanting to constantly listen to how the story unfolded. I don't recall if I read this story previously, but I won't forget this narration for a while. With such a strong female lead, and a healing FBI agent, the sparks just flew!

Loved this story!

I loved the story and even got used to a woman narrate the male parts. Mace is an undercover cop back from a long mission. When he goes back home to his sister he finds Colby instead. She is courageous and doesn’t back down from burglars. She babysits his home. She has a dark past and he has secrets and enemies. Both have scorching chemistry. There’s suspense and action in Damage. I enjoyed listening to it very much. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

All he wanted was some rest?

I was gifted this audible book by the author, thank you Jeanne.
The narration is by a single narrator unknown till this book by me, she did a nice job.

Mace an uncover agent wants nothing more than to open the door to his home maybe say hi to his sister go to bed, recoup from his last op, have some down time, and get his head back on straight, but instead of all that he is confronted by a sassy little red headed stranger holding a glock. His plan goes down the tubes along with his heart and other parts of his body.
This story has some drama, intrigue, sex, and lots of humor. You can’t help but love Colby who is very suspicious, outerly determined, sassy, but is completely vulnerable to Mace and his macho musculine wiles, why not he is tall, handsome, sexy and wounded what’s not to love.

Awesome book to listen to

This story was such a great audio book, the narrator brought the characters to life and the listener cannot help but be sucked in. Mace needed to come home to recuperate from a gun shot wound, not knowing that his sister left for her honeymoon and left Colby as the house sitter. Being in such close quarters, the two have instant chemistry that explodes. But will that relationship put Colby in harms way with the men who are trying to kill Mace? Or will the issues from her past relationships keep Colby from falling in love? This was a great story with great characters and a fast moving plot that was a joy to listen to. Another great audible from Jeanne St. James.

Great Story!

I really enjoyed listening to this steamy book by Jeanne St. James. Colby and Mace come together in an unexpected way and had great chemistry from the very beginning. I enjoyed how the author reversed their roles in terms of Mace being jealous of Colby's work hours and co-workers. Colby was emotionally damaged while Mace was physically damaged and together they healed. I thought that BB Franklin did a good performance narrating this book I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

High action & Steamy!

This is my first Jeanne St. James book and it is definitely not my last. With just the right amount of suspense and steam, St. James has brought together two characters, each with their own damaged past. Mace comes home after being deep undercover with the FBI. He needs to ease back into his own reality and recover from a serious injury. When he walks into his house, he expects to see his sister, but instead meets Colby. Colby is house sitting for Mace's sister while renovating her own house. She is trying to start her life with a clean slate away from her abusive past. When brought together, will these two damaged souls be able to heal each other? I love these two characters, each showing how their pasts do not define their future. As the two grow close, and their attraction ignites with passion and steam, St. James creates a romantic suspense thriller you will not want to miss!

B.B. Franklin narrates this story and brings the action to life. She has a great pace, and I enjoyed her female voices. Her male voice was very good, but sometimes the differentiation between male characters in a scene was not clear. I did love her emotion and suspense filled inflections.
