Summary

Of the six Montgomery brothers, Zach has always walked on the wild side. He rocketed to fame playing a hero in a movie, but off screen he’s living in the shadows. Zach’s dark secret: He leads a double life as a CIA operative. When a mission to stalk a terrorist goes horribly wrong, Zach’s cover is blown. He’s on the run and fighting to stay alive long enough to discover whom he can trust - and who betrayed him.

Jenna Walters thought she’d married the perfect man - until she unearthed his terrible secret. Now, desperate to escape his crosshairs, she and her son take refuge in Zach’s secret hideaway. Sparks fly between Zach and Jenna even as danger explodes around them.

From Afghanistan to Turkey to the mountains of Colorado, assassins track them and are closing in. Not only is Zach’s life at stake, but now Jenna and her son are targets in this high-stakes game.

Good Story, Great Narration

I was usually save my credits for more expensive books, but I'm glad I got this one, it's a sweet story with lots of emotion, If your looking for hot sex, keep looking, but if you want a satisfying story with a great narrator this is it. I will be looking for more from this author! One thing though, it's a bit unbelievable how much havoc one lady and a kid can wreak on one mans life. I think I would have told her to get lost several times along the way! but if you can suspend belief as easily as I can It's an enjoyable read.

Good story, but great narration

Superb narration. No complaints on that score. As for the story, it's your typical romantic suspense. I'd give the text about 3.5 or 4 stars. It's enjoyable, entertaining, and somewhat heartwarming, even though fairly extreme, with some plot holes.

I figured out the villain's identity easily and quickly. The author makes everything clear. Not much guesswork needed to comprehend the plot or predict what will happen next. No surprises.

I liked the scenes with the Mongomery brothers teaming up to fight the baddies. Happy to see Zach reunited into the clan. Good scenes with their mother, Anna. The SWOT team sniper, Jasmine, from book 1, plays a small role, too.

Decent romantic relationship development. One sex scene, at about 75% into the story. I liked the hero and heroine, but they both carried around too much guilt and regret. Personally, I grow bored with internal rumination, especially when it's focused on past regrets.

Lots of scenes center around the five year old boy, Sam. If you don't like children in the story, this is not for you. Personally, I do like kids, if done well. Sam's dialogue and characterization is fairly believable here, but not quite right.

Some basic swearing, but not very much, and little or no profanity. One sex scene. Some beatings, violence, and bloody murder.

Covert operative & movie star??

Zach Montgomery has stayed away from his family since the death of his father 5yrs ago. Unbeknownst to his family, he’s not just a Hollywood actor, but also a CIA operative. On the way back from an op in Afghanistan, someone tries to kill him. He survives and makes a quick stop at his Lajoya home and inadvertently picks up passengers. Jenna has discovered that her husband is an assassin and is about to leave when he returns home early...she takes her son and hides in the neighbor’s back yard. Zack only intends to spend a few minutes grabbing essentials to lay low until he figures out who’s trying to kill him. He is interrupted by his neighbor, who is searching for his wife & son. His intuition tells him that something’s off with the guy and he doesn’t do much to help. 16hrs later, Zach arrives at his mountain cabin, only to have his truck stolen by a woman! A chase ensues down the mountain and the pickup crashes. Zach saves the woman and son and recognizes them as his missing neighbors. Now Zach and his neighbors are on the run from assassins...will they survive? Will Zach give in to the growing attraction for his neighbor? What’s the connection between Zach’s assassins and the attempted murder of his mom and family friend, SWAT commander Garrison? So much drama...and time’s running out! Great book and great series so far! Now on to the next book!

I just couldn’t finish this one. Don’t waste your money or time. I think it was the worst audio book I have ever purchased.

Excellent multifaceted storyline!

Really enjoyed this book and so far both books in the series. It's rapid pace and continually developing story line kept me riveted. Couldn't stop until I finished the book. The narrator did an excellent job on the characters, from a small child to a foreign accent, each character was easily distinguishable. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! Can't wait to read the next in the Montgomery brothers series!!

Action packed from beginning to end

My first book from this author and I wasn't disappointed. It had action, suspense, and enough romance without making it cheesy. Onto to the next book in this series.

Great Book Under $10

This book is part of a series but can be listened to as a stand alone. The main premise is a bit far fetched-movie star is actually a spy using movie shoots to other countries as cover-but that's why they call it fiction, right? The main female character is on the run from an abusive husband who's also a hit man who found out she had betrayed him to the FBI. She has an adorable son who has the sweetest relationship with the hero-hard to resist a guy who loves your kid. There are quite a number of people after these two both individually and as a couple which makes for fast moving non stop action and lots of explosions! It was nice to see the hero's family again(from previous book) and catch up with them and anticipate whose book will be next. The romance in this is sweet and the h/h have great chemistry and not too graphic sex. If you like romance with a side order of spine tingling suspense and an international cast of bad guys (and some good ones, too) you will enjoy this book.

Nick Podehl was outstanding with the delivery of the story.

The whole story was just too implausible.

Would you ever listen to anything by Robin Perini again?

I would not be likely to waste a selection.

What three words best describe Nick Podehl’s voice?

Good variaton

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I could find nothing to recommend this book.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your money!
