The first story in the Passion Patrol Series introduces sassy female sleuths, romantic adventures, and thrilling mysteries.

An exciting romance thriller

Two people meet on a rainy London night, one a professional champion fighter, the other a Scotland Yard/Interpol Inspector. Both have secrets they are keeping from the other. A novel grabbing the reader and not letting go until the very end. Continuous action and unexpected directions taken keep attention on the story. Love this author! The audio version is well done adding to the interest. I received this free and am gladly voluntarily writing a review.

This will keep you guessing and listening!

Give me romantic suspense and I am a happy camper. Emma Calin is a new author to me, and I am glad to have listened to this gem. The thing that caught me from the start is that is stars a very strong female lead. Anna Leyton is not only beautiful, but she is smart and full of energy. When she meets Freddie, the chemistry is there, but an a deeper connection is immediate felt. Many times this kind of relationship feels forced, but Calin has written the story so well that it feels believable. The next thing you know, Anna is assigned a case and who is the person she needs to watch? This action packed story takes us all over the world and keeps you guessing with a whodunnit feel. As it progresses, I didn't feel any closer to the answers to the questions she was looking into which I loved. Books like this are a pleasure, they make you think and keep you on the edge. And the romance between these two is steamy! A win win for me!

With the strong woman, we need a strong female narrator. This is my first listen of Rebecca McKernan. I enjoyed her accents, but at times her voice was a little harsh. I do think her overall performance had a good pace and her voices for the characters easily distinguished and understandable.

Anna & Freddie

This book was about a police Inspector assigned to a Metropolitan Police Task Force which is working with Interpol to bring down Mobsters and Crooked Sports Personalities prior to the London Olympics of 2012. Anna has left a cushy life where she could work for her family business, Layton Marine selling Luxury Yachts. She has worked her way up to the rank of Inspector which has not all been smooth sailing. Her ex-lover, who dropped her like a hot potato when she was the subject of an inquiry is leading this Task Force but heaven only knows why because he comes across as a toady fool!

Freddie is a boxer, he is also World Champion with a fight looming in the States. They literally bump into each other one evening when they both hail the same taxi which they end up sharing. She has no idea who he is and wants to chat with this attractive man without him knowing she's a police officer as this puts a lot of people off.

The attraction between these two is instant and hot and soon leads to more but as Freddie is part of her investigation how far can this attraction go? Well without giving spoilers I really can't say but it was an enjoyable read/ listen.

I purchased the book and then downloaded the audio version and my review is written voluntarily.

Romantic Suspense

I'm not sure why, but I had a hard time getting into this story. It actually was pretty good but I think the accent made it hard for me to comprehend. It moved along at a good pace and wasn't boring. Rebecca did a good job narrating this book. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Great story!

Anna was a great character as a cop being in the position of investigating Freddie who she was involved with. Plenty of steam and some action with a great storyline as Freddie was a fighter and she was looking into the mob involvement in the fights. Freddie was also likeable and a great character. Some secondary characters were also well developed and likeable. Great story all around. As for the narrator, Rebecca McKeman, she was wonderful. Great accent and helped to bring this story to life. Also she read this story at a great pace and made it very enjoyable to listen to.

Worth the Ride

The narrator did not do it for me but the story was worth the listen. Organized crime, police drama, family drama, love based on deceit, betrayal on many levels all fill this story with several complications. The story spans the globe and the many interstices involved in human interactions. There was a lot of descriptions of her dressing and undressing. Freddie is cool to me though. This is a twisted tale. I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review.

Enjoyable

Audiobook: Narrator – Rebecca McKernan

As a Texan and not widely traveled, I struggled with the accents used for this audio-book. I tried slowing the speed down but it still just never did work for me. When the hero’s voice changed from Californian to French at no understandable whims, I was lost and frustrated because I really did not like the French accent. Mostly because it was so much harder for me to follow. If strong accents don’t bother you, then I think you’ll enjoy this one.


This was a bit insta-love/insta-lust and these characters were pretty much in love after spending only hours together. Wasn’t expecting that since the heroine is an investigator for Interpol and I thought she’d be a harder nut to crack. There’s a lot of outside drama going on here. The heroine is hiding her true purpose from the hero so when that is revealed we then have relationship drama, trust issues and bad guy drama. The steam level here was about a medium and the angst was pretty low, in my opinion.

This had a good pace to it, the characters were likable, plenty of secondary characters, and lots of little paths coming off the main road of the story-line. Altogether an enjoyable read.

I was given this free review copy audio-book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
