Summary

Affairs of the heart can be lethal in New York Times best-selling author Eric Jerome Dickey's latest sensual novel.

As a low-level enforcer in Los Angeles, Ken Swift knows danger, but nowhere does he feel it more than in his tangled romances. Divorced from one woman, in love with another, and wrestling with a strong desire to get to know a third, his life is far from perfect, and it becomes all the more complicated when his troubled daughter resurfaces. Marguax is pregnant, and when she demands $50,000 for her shotgun wedding, the tension-filled father/daughter reunion escalates into a clashing of wills and desires that spread far beyond their family. As raw emotions surface, they ignite revenge, love, longing, desperation, and despair...and the flames just might be deadly.

With the strong characters, heart-pounding action, and intense passion he is known for, New York Times best seller Eric Jerome Dickey lays bare a tale of lust and angst that will leave listeners breathless.

Happy for another EJD book!!

I think Dion Graham is awesome! He really brings the characters to life!!! I fell for Jake Ellis!!! Love him and hope he appears again I'm the future!!! The story was good, not nearly as intense as the Gideon series, but I'm a super fan so I could never be mad!!!

Not Dickey's best work

Dion was awesome as always! The story however was quite boring and uneventful. I'm disappointed because EJD is my favorite author of all time and I have never before read a story of his that I didn't like. I didn't hate this story but it was boring. I will say that I did like the use of African characters and the light shed on turbulent relationship between Black Africans and Black Americans.

Great ending

Of course Dion Graham is the absolute best narrator. This story is mild but good. Not a suspense. And a wonderful ending

EJD does it again

The story follows Ken Swift as he handles transactions as a paid thug. The attacker becomes attacked, the cheated contemplates cheating and a father unites with his daughter. Overall, I enjoyed the story. It appeared as if there were many different sub stories within the main theme (all good) and that created an exciting storyline. There were elements of racism, sexism, class, colorism or shadeism and a host of other prejudices. I have always loved to listen to the musings of EJD, but I felt this book’s racial rants were just too much. Despite not liking all the parts of the book, I understand the book is a reflection of the current racial climate, so these things needed to be said. (I just didn’t want to hear it). I found myself skipping through these parts to get back to the storyline.
Oh, and let me tell you about that Dion Graham. That man is EVERYTHING, loved his performance.
P.S, I am patiently waiting on the next Gideon book lol

Good book

I enjoyed listening to this book, it ws great and it made me think and see something's in a different light. I could have use less of Mrs. Garrett, but that's my only quibble. I hope he brings these characters back in another story, maybe more of Jake Ellis.

The complexity of a sweet life vs a suite life

Overall, this was a good read. I had hoped for a different ending and more erotica but we can't always have what we want.
