Summary

Will saving her bar cost him his heart...and his life?

After being run over, shot, and stabbed one too many times, Ace Montgomery left law enforcement for private security. When he’s hired as a bouncer in NYC, he’s ready to kiss Kentucky goodbye and leave his painful past behind. How rough can a bar called The Hole in a yuppie Brooklyn neighborhood be anyway?

Sailor Kingston, the bar’s rich, gorgeous owner, is an exhausted wreck when he arrives. All Ace has to do is train her useless bouncers, drive out the troublemakers, and make the place safe for high-class patrons. But it isn’t that simple. Something darker is at work that could cost both of them their lives. Ace is drawn to Sailor, but she's his boss - will his heart be the first casualty?

Sailor thought owning and managing her own business would free her from her late parents’ shadow. She thought wrong. The Hole will become her grave if she can’t survive the bitter legacy they have left her. The former cop from Kentucky is the last hope of her business - but the hunk with the scary past soon means more to her than that.

Sailor has never trusted anyone but herself before. Can she put her trust in Ace?

If you loved Patrick Swayze in Roadhouse, then you'll love Ace as the kick-ass, battle-scarred lead bouncer who's just what Sailor's bar (and Sailor) needs. Listen to this fourth and final book of this hot new series from award-winning author Mysti Parker and co-author MJ Post! Each book is a stand-alone read with no cliffhangers. HEA guaranteed!

Another great book in the series

I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

I enjoyed this book it was short but glad I got a copy as i don't normally go for short audio books but this is well worth a credit. The Narration was good not the best I have listened to but still good.

an enjoyable listen

I enjoyed the story line , it was a nice light listen parts of the narration felt a bit robotic in places tho I can't tell if that's down to the narration or the story itself, I would read the other books in the series tho so it hasn't put me off

Great Chemistry

All the books I've read in this series have one thing in common, great characters and great chemistry between the lead female and lead male characters.

Sailor is probably my least favorite lead female in this series, I found her reactions a bit over the top at times, but I have seem people react more extremely in less extreme situations so it's not over dramatized, it's just not within my normal.

The narration is well done again, the delivery is smooth and flowing and the character voices are clear and distinct.

In this book sparks fly between ACE and Sailor, I loved the way that they interact. The tension between them builds naturally over the course of the book and I didn't want to stop listening.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Ace of a listen

This is a great audio series. Have listened to the three that are out . Book 4/and the end of the series. .
This story has lots of heat , layers and action. It will have you glued from the begging till the end .

Hero is Ace. Heroine is Sailor .

What does Sailor need to do to keep her bar save. That when Ace steps in. He becomes security for the bar.
The chemistry between Sailor and Ace is instant hotness , they are attracted to each other . What will Ace do. . Ace was planning on leaving but now with Sailor in the picture.
Sailor sees Ace as more than a saviour for the bar .
Grab it and see the chemistry but also a great story

The narrator is great . Her voice is clear , storing and the characters were brought to the front

Ace in the Hole

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This book had a much quicker start than the previous in the series and have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The action in this book was fantastic, but the backgrounds to both Sailor and Ace were tragic. It was nice to see how sailor was able to help Ace when he needed it and that Ace was able to solve the problem that was following Sailor around. This book can be read as a stand-alone if you haven’t read the others before, but I still recommend that you do because they are just as awesome.

Ace in the Hole

I so enjoyed this book by Mysti Parker and MJ Post. The City meets country series is fun, short and hot. Opposite characters that have a connection are a favorite storyline of mine. I loved how the authors added in some humor to this story, along with having great imagery. Audra Cook performed this book flawlessly. I love the emotions she adds to her narration. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by these authors and this narrator. This is the third book in the series that I have listened to, and my favorite of them to date.

hot security guy & sexy bar owner...combustible!

Ace Montgomery quit his job as a LEO after one too many injuries on the job. Now Ace owns his security company and has accepted a job to analyze and secure a NYC bar that seems to have run into a rash of recent problems. Sailor has inherited the bar from her no-good, sleazy business man father upon his death and is burning through her money trying to run the place. Recently they have had a series of incidents that seem to be staged...bar fights, etc...that may be geared to running Sailor out of business. In rides Ace to the rescue...literally...on his bike. As Ace begins his investigation, he fights the growing attraction to Sailor and vice versa. Will they be able to work together to uncover who is behind trying to put Sailor out of business while fighting the chemistry between them? This was a quick read/listen with some steamy moments but lots of 'bad guy' action as well. Love the series!

Gotta like Ace!

For the most part, this was a good book. Nice story, good characters and good narration too. My biggest problem with this book was all the "hashtag" this and "hashtag" that. It didn't fit in with the story and I found it to be annoying and distracting. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Great, quick read!

I really enjoyed this story. The narrator had a great voice, and did a good job with the female and male characters. The author did a great job with story development in a short amount of time. I was pulling for Ace and Sailor throughout the story!

I want some Ace!

I immediately fell for Ace, the main male character, and he kept me through the whole book! The only annoying part was all the hashtags throughout the book.

Audra Cook did a good job with narration; she has the voice for different parts.
