Summary

August

My training? Professional.

My job? Hitman for a government organization.

And my next assignment? Infiltrate Marchand's crew.

Vague information, but a solid job. Why do I care?

Because this family "business" of crooks I'm investigating includes a Bajan little sister....

And she's the definition of sex on legs.

She's trouble, and I don't know if I can stay away.

Natalia

I lead a dangerous life, and so do my brothers. But when my kid sibling is saved by sexy, muscular August Reiss wearing that signature cocky smile, my gut tells me not to trust him. He's good to my brothers... but should I believe everything he says?

One thing's for sure. If my intuition is right, I'm going to put a bullet right between those gorgeous murky green eyes.

Great listen!

Plenty of romance and a good dose of suspense made for a highly enjoyable listen. Great narrator as well, I really enjoyed his performance. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

It was alright

I liked this story enough to listen to the entire thing. I thought the characters were interesting. I enjoyed listening to the narrator and would listen to another book read by him. I enjoy reading BWWM romances. I think others will enjoy it more than I did. It is a book I could take or leave. I would probably listen or read another book by this author because it wasn't boring it just isn't on my list of favorites.

Loved, I would give 4.5 overall stars

This book has drama and action. I really enjoyed listening to this book, in my opinion the narrator did a good job in bringing the story to life. My only real complaint would be that sometimes if I wasn’t paying extreme close attention I would lose track of which character was being portrayed. This is a story where two people must overcome their past horrors in order to find the love they have for each other and be able to freely express it. It is worth reading or listening to!!

Suspense and romance together

I wish I could give this a perfect score. The writing was good, the story was sexy and clever, and the narration was mostly great. The issue, and it was a big one, was 1. the narrator made me cringe every time he tried to mimic a caribbean accent. it was absolutely terrible. And 2. for a book featuring Bajan characters, it would have been expected that the narrator would know how to pronounce that word, which he didn't. It was repeated enough that it made me want to put the book down many times. In respect for the writer, I kept going.

Give It A Try!

August...My training? Professional. My job? I am a hitman for a government organization. His next assignment is to infiltrate Marchand's crew. Because this family "business" of crooks I'm investigating includes a Bajan little sister....And she's trouble, and I don't know if I can stay away.

Natalia...I lead a dangerous life, and so do my brothers. But when my kid sibling is saved by muscular August Reiss wearing that signature cocky smile, my gut tells me not to trust him. He's good to my brothers... but should I believe everything he says? One thing's for sure. If my intuition is right, I'm going to put a bullet right between those gorgeous murky green eyes.

When I started this book I was excited and it started out so good but then it kind of fell off and from there it lost me. It was a good story line but needed more action for me. My suggestion also would be to have 2 narrators or for Gregory to use a more womanly voice to help to distinguish between Natalia and August. I encourage everyone to try it for yourself and make your own decision.

An action packed story

The author knows how to grab your attention. This story is full of action , from start to finish . You won’t be able to put it down till the end .
Enjoyed the story of August and Natalia. Natalia is being blackmailed by a man that has abused her terriblely and he wants money . If he doesn’t get what he’s asking for he will abuse her family in ways that isn’t pleasant.
August is a hitman who is given an assignment to take care of Natalia . There is an instant attraction between the two one that is very strong. Both August and Natalia have given up on the opposite sex because they both experienced a painful experience. Grab it and see who wants Natalia taken care of .

I love Gregory the narrator voice . His voice is perfect, strong , clear and he does all the characters perfectly .

Fast paced and full of suspense!

A good hitman story, Amarie Avant has filled us with passion and suspense! I enjoyed August's story. The opening scene left me heartbroken and wanting to know where August would end up. When he is given the mission to stay with Natalia and find out what she is up to, his whole life turns upside down. Not only is he attracted to her, he has no idea what he is looking for. His instinct is to protect and love her. Natalia is a strong woman, loves her family fiercely and will do anything to keep them safe. Will August find what he is looking for? And do the two keep her family protected? There is a lot in this story. August has a great back story, one that will make you look at this dark and dangerous man with a little softness. Natalia has many layers, brought on by the life that she never intends to be a part of. The story is a little dark, very suspenseful and extremely passionate.

With the voice of Gregory Salinas, we get that deep,dark, alpha male in August . He is a wonderfully talented artist and is able to give August's voice just enough tension to make him seem a little aloof, yet when he is with Natalia, that voice is able to change. Salinas is also able to give Natalia a fire in her tone, you know not to mess with her. Yet he can give her the vulnerability she really has underneath. Add in a family of characters using both island and creole accents, and the narration is amazing.

There is never a dull moment in this book, it has it all, romance, mystery, suspense and lots of drama! Thank you Amarie Avant for the great read!

I listened to the Audible Version of the book. Gregory Salinas does a nice job with the narration, performs the voices of all the characters brings them and their story to life. Thank you for the great listen!

Love and Action

August came into Natalia's life just in time to save her. The action and the suspense in this book beyond my expectation. Natalia was one bad a$$ chick, but her family was her weakness. This has been one of the best BWWM books I have read in awhile. A must read.

Steamy 💋

I like the fact that you could truly get to know each character. August and Natalia came from different backgrounds but become a perfect love connection. The plot leaves you on the edge of your seat and eager to read more. The steamy parts were not rushed, not too much but just enough to keep you engaged. Great job.
