He was the last man in the world she wanted to see. But he might be the only one who could save her.
Ten years ago, Matt Girard did something he shouldn't have. When sweet Evangeline Baker offered him her virginity, he took it. Then he left town and he's never looked back.
Until now. His future as a black ops soldier with the Hostile Operations Team is in jeopardy, and he's come home for a few days before going back to face the consequences of a mission gone wrong.
Matt still makes Evie's heart pound, but she wants nothing to do with him. She's had enough of men who lie and promise things they don't deliver. But when her sister goes missing and her ex-boyfriend turns up dead, she's in need of Matt's special military skills.
With time running out, Matt will put everything on the line to protect Evie and find her sister. Even if it means sacrificing all he's worked for with HOT. Sometimes, the reward is worth the price. Especially when it's the one woman he can't forget.

"Action adventure with romance"
The action storyline was well developed and interesting. However, I am one romance novel fan who needs lots of erotic romance sizzle in the story and that was limited in this story. The narrator Aiden has such an awesome sexy voice I expected the author to give him more erotic sexy lines. Aiden's narration was perfect as usual. This a thoughtful and reflective romantic story where a past hurt was resolved with true love. This audiobook definitely worth a credit.
"Loved the story. I couldn't stop."
This book was a wonderful read. I really loved the story. Lost of action with tons of romance. I did not want the story to end.
"My Gut Feeling is...This Book is Great"
Aiden Snow's narration and deep voice, accent for Matt made this listen very enjoyable. He constantly drew me in when he lent his voice to Matt's character and he was able to handle Evie's voice without turning me off. Great job Mr. Snow.
I really liked moments she got to spend with her sister and Matt's conversation he had with his superior at the end. These both stuck out at me as life changing moments.
I don't think I can wax poetically enough to describe Aiden Snow's performance so I will just say that he took my listening pleasure to another level.
Definitely the beginning of the book that set Matt's background and reason for coming home for a while.
"Fantastic Military Romance! Great Cajun Accent!"
I think both editions are fantastic and I love the way that Aiden Snow brough Matt Girard to life.
I really liked Evie Baker because she was a very strong heroine from the get go. She was independent, smart, and funny and had learned several life lessons for her age. She had been a victim of something horrible and came out of it stronger than ever.
Aiden sounds just as I would imagine Matt does. He really brings to the life the cajun experience in the story that you might not pick up on in the book. I also really enjoyed the way that he changed the audio when Matt was speaking with his team via radio. It sounded like I was really listening to a conversation with two people over a two way radio.
Yes. I wish I could have but then I also liked having Matt and Evie be a part of my day as I drove to and from work.
I am really excited to listen to the other books in this series and have really enjoyed Aiden's narration.
"my first book from Audible.com was a winner"
I bought this last week and loved it. I'd already read Hot Pursuit on my Kindle and love it as well as the rest of the HOT series. i figured it would be a good book to try out Audible.com and I was right. i think the man (Aiden Snow) did a good job narrating this book. I love Cajun accents and he did a pretty good job with that when Matt is speaking. I've purchased several books after this one and was not so pleased with some. I returned one after 10 munites cause I couldn't stand the voice used for the character speaking. Very satisfied with Hot Pursuit!
"Love this series"
I love this book, I have read and reread it but OMG Aiden Snow as Matt Girard is pantie melting.
the whole book
yes if life didn't get the way.
I can't wait for the whole series to come out in audio
OMG! This is my first audible book. I couldn't stop listening. This will be the third time reading this book. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. Aiden did a fantastic job reading. I love Lynn Raye Harris' books.
I got this on a super sale and figured I'd try out a new-to-me author and narrator. What a great military, second-chance, action-packed romance. This was well-written and held my attention throughout. Loved the H and h. He's a good guy. She's a great gal. None of that, "He's a jerk but not to me," or, "She's sassy and smart yet stupidly runs away from her protection" crap. This was awesome. It had the perfect amount of romance, action, drama and suspense and gave a nice set up for the series which I cannot wait to continue.
Aiden Snow has a smooth, comforting voice with great tone and inflection. His female voices are subtle and well-done. They don't sound like a man's impersonation of a fish wife. He pronounces words correctly, uses accents appropriately and performs the material with the right amount of emotion, with no over-acting or robotic delivery. In short, he's awesome. Worth a credit or cash? DEFINITELY!
I really enjoyed this story. The interaction between the 2 protagonists was charming, even with the hurt he caused her 10 years ago. The narrator did a good job differentiating the voices, which I require to give a 5 star rating on the performance. Thumbs up!
This book was very entertaining on many levels. The story keeps you hooked from the beginning to the end.
