Publisher's Summary

Morton "Jacko" Jackman isn't afraid of anything. He's a former Navy SEAL sniper, and he's been in more firefights than most people have had hot meals. Lauren Dare scares the crap out of him.

Gorgeous, talented, and refined, she's the type of woman who could never be interested in a roughneck like him. So he's loved her fiercely in secret, taken her art classes, and kept a watchful but comfortable distance. Until now.

Lauren has finally found a home in Portland, far from her real identity, far from the memories of her mother's death, and outside the reaches of the drugged-out psycho who's already tried to kill her twice. One tiny misstep, a single photograph, shatters it all. She has no choice but to run again, but this time she'll give herself a proper farewell: one night with Jacko.

Their highly charged emotional encounter changes everything. In Jacko's arms there cannot be fear, there can be only pleasure. Anyone wishing her harm will have to pass through him, and Jacko is a hard man to kill.

Awesome!!

I knew Jacko's story would be great and I was not disappointed. I love how he comes out of his comfort zone to be with Lauren. Will be rereading often!!

Great to have the audio to continue the series

Jacko has been a memorable character from the start of the series. He has matured and his relationship with artist Lauren is very sweet and satisfying. Love the continuation of the characters from the Midnight series but they keep in the background, allowing the focus to be on Lauren and Jacko. Good setup for next story.

Good narration, smooth voice with no annoying vocals to take you out of the story.

SLOW START and a little unrealistic

What does Elizabeth Hart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

a little humor.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, with the slow start, I thought I was going to quit reading it. Finalkly, it got better, even though it was unrealistic.

Any additional comments?

Still deciding on the rest of the series.

Almost Great

Pros: Good action, characters and love story.

Cons: To much repeated inner dialogue from female lead.
Narrator is good but after awhile her voice can put you to sleep. I think it would have been a lot better if there was a female and male narrator. I wish authors would do this when they have both POVs. I would be willing to pay more for the book and enjoy it better. This is the only reason it wasn't a 5 star to me.
