Publisher's Summary

Romance, lust, suspense, and uncensored scenes.

Darcy Campbell was a laid-off Chicago music teacher who took a job playing at a piano bar out of desperation. She’d had a run of bad luck and was already having another bad day...but it turned disastrous when she was the only witness to a mass murder. She watched in horror as her boss, his son, and other employees were gunned down before her eyes.

The police promised to protect her identity if she testified against the monsters who had committed the massacre. But her name somehow was discovered, and threats immediately fired in her direction. Detective Nick Baker promised to protect her, and when things got hot, he hid her away in his cabin in the backwoods of Wisconsin. Darcy wasn’t sure what the bigger danger was - the killer hunting her or falling in love with the man who vowed to protect her. 

She couldn’t love a police officer. She refused to love a police officer. It was nearly impossible to resist him, though, with his intense, silver eyes and brawny body. He was like a drug, addictive and sinfully potent. Somehow, she needed to protect her heart from him while he protected her from the deranged killers. 

Was she brave enough to confront both dangers? 

Nick is the first audiobook in the steamy Brothers in Blue series.

Warning - These stories contain steamy scenes and are not suitable for all ages. Meant for ages 18-plus.

Great short story and start to the series!

I have a love/hate relationship with short stories. On one hand, I like that I can listen in one sitting (I like to listen at 1.5 speed) On the other hand, I want more! :) Great introduction to this family, good suspense, action and romance / tension. I'm hoping that we get to meet much more of the family in future books. Narration was good!

Can't Wait for the Next Book in the Series!

I loved this short romance story; didn't want it to end. It was actually a mystery and romance in one. The author, Simone Carter, did a great job making me want more! There was a lot of character development that allowed you to get to know and love Nick's entire family, so I'm hoping for future romances for both of his sisters and brothers.
The narrator, Lissa Blackwell, did a great job! I really enjoyed her voice, pacing, mystery, emotion, everything. I actually loved her narration so much so that I will be searching for other books she has performed.

Suspenseful Quick listen

For a quick read the author did really great with developing the story that had plenty of suspense.

Darcy was already down on her luck when she witnessed a horrible murder at her work. This story continued at a perfect pace, not rushed and I felt like it was complete by the end. I would have liked to get a little more character development with Nick but it didn't take from the story line.

Suspenseful and loving

This story has it all: action, suspense and a HEA. Nick was very protective and had a strong presence over Darcy.
I love the first half of the book, parts towardthe end felt a little rushed. I felt that there could have been more detail. The narration was good.

GOOD START!

This is the start of a really good series. I liked it! Although this story is very short, it is full of action, romance and suspense. The narration was great and gives that extra flair to the book. This author gives you entertainment with her characters and plot, many twists and turns throughout. A job well done! I will definitely be reading any books released in this series (can't wait).

Great Read

Nick (Brothers in Blue #1) by Simone Carter was another great read by the author. Darcy is at another day at work. Little does she know by the end of her shift, things are going to drastically change. She see's the mass murder of her co-workers. Nick is one of the responding officers that night and vows to protect Darcy. This was another great read by Simone Carter and I can't wait to read more of this series.

be careful little eyes what you see...

Laid-off music teacher, Darcy, takes a ob playing piano at a bar. All is going fairly well, until she witnesses the brutal murder of her boss, his son and all of the employees at the bar. As the lone survivor, Darcy must be willing to testify against the killer...that is, unless the killer gets to her first. When her identity is leaked, Detective Nick Baker must keep Darcy safe until the trial. After an attempt is made on her life, Nick decides to hide Darcy away in his family's cabin. Neither counts on giving in to the mutual attraction but that is what happens. Nick believes that Darcy is 'the one', but Darcy is holding firm in her commitment to never date/marry a cop. She has reasons from her childhood for this stance. When Nick is almost killed protecting Darcy, will she change her mind and stick around or will this prove her point that life with a cop will only bring heartache? This is a quick romantic suspense, somewhat, with loveable characters and I can't wait for the stories of Nick's brothers! We do eventually get an HEA, after some begging...won't say who begged...lol.

Romantic Suspense with men in blue

You had me at silver eyes! Something about dark hair with that color eyes intrigues me, and when Darcy took a request from the man with silver eyes, I was drawn into the story. When her set is over, she goes back to get ready to leave and witnesses a horrific murder. Now being sought out as a the lone witness, Nick, the silver eyed police officer is going to protect her with his own life. Simone Carter melds the perfect amount of suspense and romance together without that feeling of insta-love. It is an attraction that grows, and as the danger intenses so does their feelings for each other. But Darcy can't love a man in blue. Or can she? The introduction of Nick's siblings adds some depth and humor to the story as well, rounding the book out. This is a great start to this series.

Liisa Blackwell gives a great performance as usual. She is able to give the story the thrilling suspense along with the emotional turmoil. She paces the story well and has a variety of voices to enjoy.

Short, sweet and action-packed!

Simone Carter is quite adept at writing sexy, action-packed, romantic stories that cut out the superfluous details that can weigh a plot down. Nick and Darcy's story literally starts with heated eye contact and speeds up from there. Their connection literally parallels the level of danger that surrounds them.

Of course, boy meets girl, girl is in danger, boy saves girl is too unsophisticated for this story. There is an element of that basic plot structure but also so much more, including bacon grease, a skillet, sneaky friends and a seemingly insurmountable personal history.

This audiobook is easy to listen to and entertaining from start to finish. Lissa Blackwell has a pleasant narrative voice as well.
