Publisher's Summary

Kidnapping victim Alex Throne literally drops into the arms of security specialist Reese Holt, pulling Holt into a battle against a ruthless drug cartel, personal betrayal, and a specter from Holt's CIA past. Holt agrees to put his team of specialists on the trail of Alex's assailants while he takes on the personal job of protecting the life he inadvertently saved, motivated, in part, by a romantic attraction. Keeping his mind on protecting Alex could prove difficult, especially when he can't keep his mind off Alex's body.

Difficult to put down.

This was the first book I've heard by Laura Baumbach. I really enjoyed it. Though the villain was pretty easy to predict, there were still details left to surprise the reader.
As far as the narrator, I will pretty much listen to any book narrated by Joel Leslie even if it's a book I might not be totally interested in. He is absolutely fantastic!

Loved the story but the narration not so much

This is really a great story but the experience would be so much better under different narration. Actually maybe Joel just needs to take a different approach. It comes off so much like "the name is Bond...James Bond" in a deep husky voice throughout the whole story, never just getting real. I've like much of his other work, however. Looking forward to what's next in this series!

Great story, gritty main character

I enjoy gay romance with more than just a romance, angst filled storyline and this book delivered that. Reese was consistantly portrayed as emotionless but came into his feelings for Alex both sharply and slowly enough to be realistic. Characters were deep enough and visuals detailed enough I could see scenes in my mind, which are both important.

Of course, being narrated by Joel Leslie only brought more depth as usual!

Stunning

I loved this in the book form! The plot has plenty of action right from the start. Alex is a fabulously complex and unspoilt character, Reese is very much a product of his life's experiences. They make a fantastic couple and I hope we get more from them soon. I could see these guys being as long lived ( in the book series sense) as Eve and Roarke in the In Death series.
Then we come to Joel Leslie's inspired narration. Every character has a distinct and recognisable voice. It is as always a joy to listen to words I've already read and hear different annotations. I would listen to this man read the phone book and enjoy it!
I would definitely recommend this audio to.... well Everybody really!
