Danger once again laps at the shores of Barkley Sound, the Graveyard of the Pacific....
It may be summer, but schoolteacher Anna Silver's trip to the coastal town of Bamfield is anything but a vacation. She's on the run, desperate to stay one step ahead of her father's murderer and determined to track down the one man she's been told to trust: her father's old cell mate, Brent Carver. But when she finds him, she discovers not a kind, elderly artist but a dangerously hot alpha male with blood on his hands.
Loyal to the core, Brent would never turn away his friend's daughter when she comes seeking help. He can't deny Anna his protection...just as he can't deny the instantaneous attraction he struggles to keep in check. But as their passion blazes out of control, a sadistic killer is on the hunt to stop Anna from uncovering his dark secrets.

"Exciting, thrilling, suspense"
Suspense, excitement, growing and learning of the characters, putting faith and believing in ones self.
When she found out her father was one of the good guys, it put faith and love back into her family and brought them back together
Brent, I loved the voice she gave him, the passion she put into it. Emily made him seem real, his pain, sorrow and he coming to realize he did what he had to do to protect those he loved. His forgiveness of his self.
This was a book that my husband and I could listen to together to give us some us time that we did enjoy very much. Toni gives so much to her readers as she tells a compelling compassionate story of lose, love, pain, sorrow, forgiveness, starting over and learning to live again while she keeps you on the edge of your seat with her suspense, the chase.
Anna has been through so much and still has confidence not only in herself but those around her. Most would have fallen and let the world take over. Anna is a very strong character who grows through out the book to become a women she can be proud of. She refuses to become a victim but take the bull by the horn as she is in a race for not only her life but others she holds dear as she tries to find the clues to who killed her father before they find and kill her.
Brent is pulled into the fast pace suspense when his friend sends his daughter to him for safe keeping as he falls to his death. He works through the clues as he races to keep his best friends daughter alive and prove her father is innocent. Brent is a strong character who would do anything for those he loves as he has done in the past. He is hiding from the world but all that is about to change with one women who rocks his world in more ways than one.
Both Anna and Brent have a very painful past they want to forget but can never forgive themselves or others. They learn to grow into wonderful characters and come to realize that sometimes you have to do what you have to do but this does not make you a bad person. You need to grab life and live it like there is no tomorrow as these who wonderful characters find out.
Toni is one of my favorite authors who grabs you from the first page with thrills and suspense you do not want to put her books down. The things I love about this story is the characters they must forgive themselves, learn to become the people the need to be as well as letting others in their life. We have no control of those around us we can only do as we feel is best and hope for the best. Mistakes might be made but that does not make us bad, we pay the price and learn but in most cases we would do it all the same again because of those we love as Brent found out. I loved watching these character develop as only Toni can do.
Toni always has me so into her writing as her narrators gives me chills with her telling of the story. Emily Beresford is an outstanding narrator who has a smooth voice with such passion. She brings so much to her audio's that you can feel the pain of each character.
Between the two you never know what is coming next and are always surprised at what Toni has in store for you. She gives you a pretty clean read with lots of steamy passion, two characters have a strong pull and attraction which is written in a way that compliments the story. You feel you are part of it as the author gives her characters meaning and makes two worlds right again. I have been hook on Toni as an author since the first audio of hers I listened to. She knows how to keep you on the edge as she pulls you in and keeps you hanging. I know Toni will always give me an outstanding read of suspense, and excitement that will get my heart pumping with thrills as she takes me on a wild ride of who done it and why.
Really enjoyed this book. I definitely want to read more by this author. The narrator did a good job too of distinguishing between characters
First time I listened to this author and I really liked the book. Will watch for more from same in the future.
"Narration tough to listen to..good story"
The story was good, though predictable. However, the narrators voice was extremely tough to listen to. Each time she portrayed Brent's voice, I wanted to stop listening.
"Wanted to love this"
I just finished this second book in this series and frankly, I was anxious for it to be over. I was really eager to listen to this audiobook and hear the story of the Brent, the brother of the main character from book one, who spent 20 years in jail for accidentally killing the father that abused his younger brother. He was so hard and untouchable in book 1, so I couldn't wait to get into his story in this book, but goodness did Anna ruin it for me. The author could not have written a more selfish and irritating woman if she tried. I was so annoyed with her most of this book that i still could not give her favor once the writing turned in her favor. She makes me think hard of the saying "common sense ain't that common". It's a decent read, especially if you read book one, which i liked more only because i was less irritated with the female protagonist, but there are more twist and turns, all of which become pretty obvious 1/2 way through the book, if you have common sense :-).
Good story. Profanity was a little overkill but not too offensive, possibly trying to appeal to a younger audience. This was an easy read/listen, without too many characters or subplots. this was a first time read for me with this author so I can't compare it to other works. I would consider it a romantic suspense.
Another fast paced romantic suspense. A little more intense than book one, but just as well written.
I loved this book and its predecessor. The people were so well constructed that you get sucked into the story and don't want to stop reading. It's gripping and tender in all the right places. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romance, a little danger, and a well written story.
This was an Audible.com recommendation. The synopsis sounded interesting, as did the narration sample. The reviews were favorable too. Why not. If I didn't like it, I could return it. I'm glad I did as I throughly enjoyed the listen! And now it's in our library waiting for my husband turn.
If, like me, you've done the above, you only await my verdict. I do recommend this book...with one caveat: there are some X-rated scenes. I mention this because some readers are very sensitive. I did not feel the scenes offensive based upon the histories of the main characters.
This book was Just ok because it wasn't what I usually like. First let me say that Davis Silver got a raw deal in this book and if I were him i'd be haunting the CRAP out of a few people.
I'm not used to the Hero in romance books having their hands tied and not able to totally just wreck shit and level the world for his woman. I'm not saying that Brent was a wuss but he was cautious while still trying to do stuff the legal way.
Anna was a HUGE pain in my ass. Yeah I get she was traumatized and a victim of her past but hell woman!! She, and her mom were cut from the same cloth. They didn't care about anyone else and only had tunnel vision for what was going on in their own world. At one point I was cheering the bad guys on hoping he'd shoot one or both of them. For me Anna was just unlikable. SHe was very hot and cold and one minute she's all no no no don't touch me then the next she's like dude make me see stars. No Bueno.
story - 2
narrator 2.5 - I didn't like the narrator for this story. Her male voices were totally lacking in effort.
