Publisher's Summary

Some secrets are worth dying for...Military historian Trina Sorensen has a nearly impossible task before her: get recalcitrant but tempting former Navy SEAL Keith Hatcher to reveal what happened during a top secret Somalia op five years ago. Recent history isn't usually her forte, but the Navy wants a historian's perspective and has given her the high security clearance to get the job done. Keith isn't just refusing to tell Trina about the op, he's protecting a national secret that could destroy the lives of those he cares about the most. But not wanting to talk about a covert mission doesn't mean he isn't interested in spending time with the sexy historian, and the first time they kiss, it's explosive. When the past comes pounding on Keith's door, he'll do anything to keep Trina safe...Anything, that is, except tell her the secret that could get them both killed.

Another great listen

Rachel Grant just seems to get the balance right. She tells a great story where there is drama, sex and well developed characters. This book was no exception. While not my favourite book from this author, it was still a fantastic listen. One of the things I like best about Ms Grant is her ability to write intelligent, capable female leads. She holds the men in her books accountable for their actions as well as the women. I love that the hero is intelligent, but also has emotions that makes him less than perfect. I love that the heroine is ‘allowed’ to just like sex - no shame, no body image issues, no issue around does this make her a slut or that she has to only like sex if her emotions are involved. I gave this story 4 stars just because it is a bit slow in places and the female lead was a bit more annoying than usual - but still great.

Withholding Evidence

I've read the previous 2 books in the series. Narration and storylines are good... great mysteries in general. I'd seriously consider buying more from this author. The romance is corny, falling in love SO quick... not just falling in love, but falling into bed in the first 30 mins. Why do good writers feel the need to cheapen their story with your instant love and very graphic sex scenes? How about a little less sex and more romance? I'm not sure I'll be reading the rest of the books.

Deadly Secrets

When Military historian Trina Sorensen is tasked with getting information on a top secret Somali op she never thought it would bring Navy SEAL Keith Hatcher into her life. As infuriating as he is gorgeous Keith refuses to reveal what happened. He can't when he's protecting a national secret that could destroy lives. Keith knows he should stay away from the sexy historian, but he doesn't want to. As they draw closer it becomes apparent that keeping his deadly secrets could cost him everything, including the woman of his dreams. He will do anything to keep Trina safe...Anything, that is, except tell her the secret that could get them both killed. I really enjoyed listening for free with Audible Escape to this Hot Military Romantic Suspense with brilliant narration by Nicol.

Same theme, different characters.

I really enjoyed the first 3 audiobooks I listened to by this author (flashpoint series), so I quickly started a "catch-up". After 3 more... this is like an audio soft porn... same detailed sex ...think I'll return. Sad, seems like there is a creative mind for some of the stories, but maybe I'll wait till a new novel and see if it continues.

Grabbed me in the first few minutes

This is a fast paced book, as is the style of Rachel Grant. The reader/listener is quickly thrust into the midst of, she needs to do what??? and can that sexy guy step over here for a few minutes??
She is a military historian and he has a story to tell - but won't. It's fast, fun and sexy. Quick twist at the end.
It's fun to listen to this type of book. Not brain surgery, but captures my attention.

Exciting

An exciting and suspenseful story with secrets best kept that way and love that can complicate things.
Ms. Zanzarella did captivate my attention with her passion with which she narrated the story. A little more differentiation between the characters would have been better though.

This book had it all

It was action packed with just enough corky romance and heated passion to keep me wanting more. I can't wait to dive into the next in its series.

Withholding

This was the best of the 3 Evidence books that I've read, in that the hero wasn't a jerk 100% of the time. The two made a good couple & while they sometimes reacted badly, they were adult enough to think it thru after a while & forgive each other. Thumbs up!

Great story

I’ll admit I’m a fan of Rachel Grant, she writes good characters, interesting stories with creative plots. This book does just that, I really enjoyed the banter between the characters. They were witty, funny and I particularly liked how Trina wasn’t cowed by any of the male attitude she faced - credible considering she’s working with the military. There’s some great plot twists, lots of action and a brilliant narrator. A really enjoyable read.

I have just discovered this wonderful new author

What did you like most about Withholding Evidence?

I liked to intricate plot and fascinating characters. I have enjoyed all the books in this series by this author.

What other book might you compare Withholding Evidence to, and why?

Though the themes are not the same, I think that her books remind me of books by other favourite authors of mine such as Cynthia Eden, Mary Burton or Karen Rose. She has the same well-developed characters and meaty plots.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I enjoyed the scene in the car. Trina is a determined and resourceful heroine.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, because it keeps you on the edge of the seat.

Any additional comments?

I have now downloaded ALL the books by this author in the Audible Library as well as those available on Kindle but not available in Audible and have not been disappointed in any of them.

Secrets

A slightly shorter read, but longer than a novella. This story is set in Washington DC, but involves residue from Somalia about five years ago and an anti government conspiracy group. Familiar characters from previous stories help Keith and Trina work out who is actually the target and get them their HEA. Bombs, gassing and kidnapping are all part of the thrill ride that is part of this story. What I really like about these books is that the heroine is always proactive in solving the case even though she also has the help of the hero. The pairs become partners, not just rescuer and rescued.

Evidence withheld till last moment

Another great story by Rachel Grant. Very gripping storyline that keeps you guessing till the very end. The activities of the characters in the bedroom descriptive as always! Highly recommend this!
