DEA agent Eve Taylor has had her fill of alpha males. When Resolutions operative and former lover Dillon "Mac" McKenna, threatened her hard-earned independence, she ran. On a mission to gather evidence against a Colombian drug-lord, Eve discovers the drug-lord is helping terrorists plan an attack on American soil. Before she can escape with the vital information, she's captured and comes face to face with her mortality….
As a teen, Mac watched his family fall apart after his mother died doing dangerous U.N. work. The possibility of losing Eve to a mission ignited an overwhelming need to protect her. When he forced her to choose him or her job, she walked away. Two years later, it seems all his nightmares have come true and he's tasked with rescuing her from a Colombian prison. Mac has never stopped loving Eve, but does he dare risk his heart when he's so terrified of losing…?
On the run, Mac and Eve must learn to trust each other again in order to stay alive.
Within the first 15 minutes I couldn't listen anymore. The narrator sounded more like Strawberry Shortcake than a female operative. Truly the wrong genre for her to narrate for. The story seemed to be written well and I will finish with the e-companion book I purchased. Disappointed
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Resolutions was an actioned packed read (or listen in my case) from beginning to end. Drug lords, undercover operatives, twists and turns, its all here.
Eve Taylor is a DEA agent working to take down drug lord and terrorist Mendoza. When things go wrong in the jungles of Columbia and Eve is captured her old flame, Resolutions Operative, Mac is called in to head the rescue mission.
Eve is strong willed and tough as nails, Mac is a total alpha male. It are these similar personality traits that tore the couple apart to begin with. Eve wanted to be in the action while Mac wanted her safe and protected. When the two come face to face again old feelings and fears which never really went away resurface. Mac and Eve must now work through their emotions and the past all while trying to take down Mendoza and ultimately survive.
If you are a fan of action packed books that this is one for you. While I did enjoy the story I felt as if the action overshadowed the romance and love aspect. I needed a bit more backstory for each character, some more dialogue and a little more softness in place of the hard action.
For those listening to the audiobook, I found the narration to be a bit stiff. I did get used to her voice as the story went on but it did interfere with the flow of the book for me.
An exciting and sexy thrill ride, Resolutions has it all: a super hot alpha male hero, a bad ass female lead, steamy sex, suspense, surprises, and a satisfying second chance romance.
I love romantic suspense, especially when our female lead is a kick ass operative who stands toe to toe with dangerous drug lords, fights alongside her sexy male counterparts (and saves their asses!), but still has a touch of sexy femininity. With their intense chemistry and rocky past, Eve and Mac are a fun couple to follow as they do their jobs as operatives and still manage to find time for some hot sex. Though it seems pretty clear they belong together, they certainly struggle to get it right (but when they do, it's worth the wait!).
The plot is action-packed, with violence, suspense, intrigue, betrayal, and plenty of unexpected twists and turns. It a sexy and exciting story with fun characters and even a dose of humor. A great read (or listen)!
I listened to the audiobook version and did not read the actual book. I was fine with but didn't love the performance. The narrator was a bit robotic and it made the dialogue sound a bit stiff. It didn't interfere with my listening experience, though a different narrator could have improved it.
