Detective Sergeant Mackenzie McAllister leads a team of police investigators. When the new kid, Drew Bradley, joins the squad, Mack is bound by duty to show him the ropes. The chemistry between them is immediate, but with Mack being 12 years older, she fights becoming entangled with the young, sexy detective.

Drew enters the unit not only to help with the investigation they are conducting, but to find out what is really going on inside its walls. Working with the intense and strict Sergeant Mack is invigorating, but between the need to protect her and his second shield, he is at a loss and falling hard.

Together they will uncover the evil from within and try to deny the passions that rage between them. Who in her unit is trying to keep her from finding out the truth? Who will take a life that will draw them closer? And what are the secrets hidden behind the shield?

Fantastic listen!

Stacy Eaton pulled me into this and had me listening all night! What a story! Mack is on the case, investigating the recent stolen car ring in her town. New to the department, rookie Drew Bradley is working with her as he acclimates to the job. Being twelve years her junior, the chemistry is palpable, but work and romance don't mix, especially with a "kid". As the investigation begins, there are roadblocks and danger lurking around every corner. Unpredictable and exciting, this story had me on the edge. The element of danger, the blooming romance, the secrets and deceit are all building into a culmination of unexpected results! It's complex, it had me constantly trying to figure out the secrets and the answers, and I found my heart racing as the suspense was building. This is my kind of book and has left me wanting to know more of Mack and Drew's story!

Haven R Powers is a new to me narrator, and I enjoyed her narration. Great pacing and good voices had me invested, but I loved her ability to build the feeling of suspense. It's a fantastic listen!

Good story

Although the story grabbed me from the start it took me a bit to get into the way the back and forth between chapters went. In the past the duo perspectives ive listened to continue the others view from where it was left off. These characters back track sometimes to depict their side of the story. I wasn't used to that style of writing, once I wrapped my brain around it I enjoyed it more.

I also found the narrator's stride with the characters got better as the Book progressed. I found it a little choppy at the beginning.

All in all I enjoyed the Book as this was my first from both the author and narrator I would definitely read/listen to something from them again.

Fantastic Story & Listen🎧📚🎧 Gripping & Intense!

Stacy Eaton does it again, she delivers another fantastic book, I love how she manages to balance several genres into her novels and perfect each one of them with her creative and well thought out storylines. This is what you call an addictive page turner, one you can not put down because you need to know what happens next. I enjoy Ms. Eaton writing style and how the story is told in alternating POV by the two lead characters, Detective Sgt. Mackenzie McAllister aka Mack and Detective Drew Bradley. Drew is newly assigned to Mack’s squad and she will be his training partner as he learns the workings of the squad. Mack notices him and how good looking he is, there is an instant attraction but he is much younger and she is his boss so the attraction would not go anywhere. Drew can hold his own and it turns out there is more to the man and behind his shield. Mack is working on a complex case that is involving stolen cars which escalates to more. This book is thought-provoking and keeps you on your toes, you know there is something going on behind the scenes but you do not know what or who is involved. The story is cleverly plotted with plenty of drama, both personal and crime drama, as well as mystery, some angst, action, twists and turns, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and sine hot romance. Stacy Eaton, thank you for another fantastic novel, I am looking forward to what comes next for Mack and Drew.

🎧📚🎧 And for the terrific narration, Haven R. Powers did a great job bringing the characters and their story to life. She set the perfect tone for the story, captured the character’s emotions and projected them into her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the great listen🎧

greed and lack of value for life

Mack's overly fixated on the age difference was off putting and frustrating, especially since she was frothing at the mouth over the boy!!! Fact #1
never lie to yourself. Lie to others, but not to yourself. Because of jealousy and stupidity Mack almost lost her life turning the phone volume down. Smh!! Sometimes I think Mack's
tstl !!!!! Some very gutwrenching minutes. Gary was such a pig! Not happy with the ending and not going further. It's over in my mind!!!! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job bringing it to life.

Fantastic Book

Ms. Eaton kept me glued from page one til the end with her perfect writing. I loved the characters. Drew and Mac were cemented from the moment they met. It was refreshing to read about older woman/younger man trope. This book had lots off suspense and intrigued. The narrator did a fabulous job. Well done!

Engaging story

This author is a master of getting the reader/listener, involved in the story from the beginning to the end.
The story revolves around Mac/Mackenzie McAllister and Drew Bradley.
Mac is a Detective Sergeant who is surprised and not too happy to be assigned to show the “new kid” the workings of their squat.
Mac is unaware that Drew is more than it seems, an FBI agent sent undercover to investigate the squad.
Sparks fly between the two which troubles Mac since Drew is 12 years younger.
Classic Ms. Eaton, the story is told in the POV of both characters.
In the midst of the action and danger, feelings develop.
I am not a fan of cliffhangers, so I was a little disappointed at the end. That said, I did enjoy this audiobook.

Love listening to Haven R Powers.

Even though this great book ends on a cliffhanger, promise you will love it and will find yourself wanting to listening/read the next. Honest.

Old strong female police detective and her younger recurit in the department.
The chemistry is brilliant between them.
Uncover FBI , corrupt police officers, action and steamy scenes. Bliss

A Thrilling Romance

The second Shield is a wonderfully written, thrilling, and riveting romantic suspense. The storyline is entertaining, fast-paced, suspenseful, passionate, with the perfect balance of romance, mystery, twist, and turns to keep you thoroughly engaged. I Love the main characters; they were well-rounded, captivating and with emotional depth and vulnerabilities. Together, they had a pretty solid connection and a charged chemistry, and I really enjoyed listening to their journey. Excellent narration! Haven R. Powers did a fantastic job with the characters and their emotions, bringing them to life. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of this audiobook, and one I'm definitely recommending.
