Publisher's Summary

From their first encounter, she knew he was trouble.

A top operative in her field, Elise was trained since youth to be one of Earth's most elite soldiers. But nothing could prepare her for Tyrminus and the deadly aliens taking over the city. She is given one job: Find the Grayhart team of explorers that have disappeared within the undercity and bring them back alive, a seemingly impossible mission. There is one rule: Stay away from the alien bounty hunters, especially their terrifying and hypnotic leader, Nezka, who has been assigned to hunt down the mysterious criminal overlord now ruling the undercity. As much as Elise would gladly abide by that rule, fate had other plans.

Now, Nezka is her only hope of surviving. Despite how wicked and dangerous he may seem, the ruthless hunter claims he will aid her in the fight to save the others and escape the city. Because protecting her suddenly seems his top priority. But Nezka carries dark secrets, including a separate mission that could destroy the growing bond between them.

Can she trust him? Or will he be her end?

Great book. Some cliches.

As female ex special ops, there are many cliches involved with Elise. Thing is, under fire, you go with the flow to increase likelihood of survival. And not getting shot in the face. Not question why your partner is “switching sides”. Tactical reasoning is not in place on the heroines side despite being a military type specialist. Other than that, and getting over my military fogged brain, I LOVED this book. This entire series even. Especially the first one!

disappointment

I must admit I chose this book because Mason Lloyd was one of the narrator's. I was very let down by the story and the performer.

Excellent Book and Expertly Narrated

Well written and executed book. Everything to keep you engaged….action…drama…romance…adventure…and tugs at the heart strings. Both narrators did an excellent job…very talented artists who bring many authors books even more to life, especially for those of us who like to listen instead of reading. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it for those who love the sci-fi romances that are meaty and have lots of substance and a bit of all of the above mentioned to round it out.

Good, but…

I really enjoyed this series so far but not so much with this book. It just seem to be a lot of fighting and Elise getting hurt. And, to be honest I could not develop any empathy for our hero Nezka. I’m not a big fan of romances in which one of the partners is keeping dangerous, damaging secrets from the other. I know that it’ll all work out in the end but while it’s happening, I hate the feeling or sense of betrayal. I don’t know why they keep changing the narrators but these two did an excellent job.
