Great story

Codename Romeo is an excellent start to the Rogues and Rescuers series. It is a well-written romantic suspense story with an engaging plot and intriguing characters. From the start right to the end, I was wholly immersed. The narration by Marie Smith is excellent. She does a great job with the characters, bringing them to life. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Codename Romeo

I enjoy Lucy Leroux’s writing style. Unfortunately, I did not care for this book as much as "Eat You Up." Absolutely loved that book. Ethan owned an apartment building with his buddies and was slowly renovating it. Julia was staying in a studio with her niece Luna. Ethan is an FBI agent and Julia is on the run after her family is killed. There are some really funny scenes with the baby, Luna and how Ethan reacts. I love how everything worked out in the end with Juliette, Luna and Ethan. I am not sure I will continue on with the series. I will wait until a book 2 comes out. Marie Smith did a good job with the narration. I was given this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Cute story

Good storyline even though it is a little predictable. The main characters have good chemistry and there is some action/suspense too.

Good

I liked the story Had a lot of action Didn't like that the narrator did Ethan's thoughts in her female voice and that her attempts at the male voices weren't good. A male narrator would have been better. Overall a good read.

enjoyed it

Would I listen to it again: yes Did the story keep me engaged: yes Was I invested in the characters: yes Story comment: good pace, well written characters and an entertaining story. I enjoyed watching FBI agent and longtime bachelor Ethan's gruff edges soften as he spends time caring for Julie and learned what to do with her toddler. 😆 Narrator comment: Marie Smith is a new narrator for me and I think she's done a good job narrating Codename Romeo. I had no problem distinguishing characters and her rhythm, inflections and intonations all worked to bring the book to life. <I received this book from Audiobooks Unleashed in exchange for my unbiased review>

Sweet connection with some steam and suspense

Entertaining story with a good mix of sweet and steamy. I wasn't a huge fan of the premise, but I liked both characters and the bits of suspense added to the story. Listening with Audible was a good experience. The narrator did a good job; she had a nice tone to her voice. Recommend listening if you have the chance. Ethan is a nice guy with a sweetheart. Loved how protective and supportive he is of Julia and Luna. I liked Julia okay; she's a bit too much damsel for my liking, but she has her moments of strength. Ethan and his friends have purchased an old apartment building that they are renovating for themselves. Julia and toddler Luna live in the last apartment left with tenants, but Ethan has been trying to get her to move so they can finish renovations. A snow storm and an illness get in the way of any plans of Julia finding somewhere else to live. Ethan ends up being a lot more involved in Julia and Luna's lives than he ever expected, and Julia has some secrets that may prove dangerous. I wasn't fully a fan of Julia dodging her landlords and how she came to live in the US, but the story does have some interesting elements that kept the story entertaining. Overall, a good story that has me looking forward to more!

Swoon!!

Give me a hero taking care of a baby girl and you've got me hook, line, and sinker. Especially since Ethan had no clue what he was doing and suddenly he's taking care of a sick mom and baby girl. His learning curve was very entertaining but to see him fall for that little girl and how sweet he was with her made me so happy. I think Ethan's bachelor status in previous books made him less interesting to me as the other guys in this series. So I love that the author throw a curve ball his way that ended up bringing out such a sweet and caring man to fall for. Juliet started out as a bit of a weak character, however the longer she was with Ethan, the more her confidence grew. She shed that weaker girl and became what I prefer to see in a heroine. I like how the storyline forced these three to spend so much time together. My favorite part to any book is to see how a couple handles things together. I really enjoyed this couple and baby Luna.
