Publisher's Summary

Every assassin has an exit strategy - their ultimate plan for leaving that dangerous life and disappearing. They just never expect to live long enough to enact it. Gabriel Prescott was no different. But everything changed when he met fellow mercenary Justin Mallory.

Now, he’s racing across Europe with Justin to put to rest old threats before they can end both their lives. Of course, it will also mean coming clean to Justin about exactly who he is and who wants him dead. Gabriel can only hope that Justin will still want him when the truth comes out.

Dark but oh so good

I really dig this series. It's pretty dark and so freaking hot. I really love this series. I love Gabriel and Justin. They are such a cute couple who would do anything for each other. I love Kenneth's narration. So so good.

His white knight

Justin comes to the rescue of Gabriel. The story is one that you don’t want to stop. Kenneth Obi does an awesome job of keeping the listener on the edge of their seats. I recommend this series to everyone!

better than book 1

Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Were there any parts I found annoying: no
Did I feel an emotional connection to the characters: yes
Would I listen to it again: yes

I listened to the 3 books in this series back to back. Each book was better than the one before it and overall made for an enjoyable series.

Vengeful Lover: I enjoyed this better than Book 1, the story was better developed and flowed more smoothly, the pace was good, the 2 MC's continue to come together building on their relationship and are working better as a team - lots of action and drama with a bit of betrayal thrown in for good measure. The story line does reference the novella that was set between books 1 and 2 but it isn't necessary to have read it.

I continue to enjoy Kenneth Obi's narration, he's done a great job bringing this series to life. Each character is voiced consistently from the previous book, their personality comes through and all the emotions are there adding to the audio experience

exciting , witty and sexy

This is a book two of the Exit Strategy series and must be read in order. This one takes place after events that led to Gabriel taking off settling scores and removing threats to their future together. But who is Gabriel really and why do they end up taking on the Russian Mafia? Then a twist and why is the CIA interfering and who is Justin? Will Justin and Gabriel be freed and have a future together or is this just another attempt for Gabriel to get rid of his past and maybe Justin too?
Oh boy are there twist and turns in here! Lots of action, drama, and a little betrayal. I was sitting on the edge of my seat.
This is a great book, but Kenneth Obi gives each character great voice and I loved Gabriel’s Russian accent and Colton’s southern one. I cannot wait for the next book!

5 stars across the board.

I wondered how the first one could be topped and this is it. The story moves at a great pace, lots of action both in and out of the bedroom. Will start the next one immediately. 5 stars all around.

fast paced and a fun read

I enjoyed this read, I found it easy to get into. I enjoyed learning more about Gabriel and his past. However the action part, being a more heavy element in the story, didn't have any real stakes and I needed them in this one especially as the romance wasn't so strong in the book

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the top 5 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

More please!

Everything about the two stories was perfect to me and the narrator too ... If there will be more gay but if not I think the ending was brilliant!
