Publisher's Summary

Four years ago, Dylan made Alex's heart race and her blood pound whenever he touched her. The high school quarterback was everyone's dream boyfriend. Then Alex's dad caught them in a compromised position in her room and sent Dylan out of their house and out of her life. Dylan left town a few weeks later, saying he'd never be back.

They're about to learn you should never say never.

When they meet again over a mummified corpse in the blazing Arizona desert, what secrets is Dylan carrying, and why does he have to look so damn good? Before long, the town believes the death was murder, and Alex, now a college student and aspiring investigative journalist, can't decide whether she'd like to find out what she missed all those years ago, or help put Dylan behind bars.

What's going on in this tiny Arizona border town? Will Alex get the chance to make up her mind about Dylan, before she's marked for murder herself?

    "Okay story but not great narrating "

    The romance - suspense story was okay, but the narration almost destroyed the book. Unfortunately, it's rather difficult to understand the story well when the narrator often speaks with a woman's voice when it's a man and sometimes the other way around too. It made it quite difficult to enjoy the story.
    It doesn't end in a cliffhanger, but the story continues in book 2, so you have to read/listen to both books to get a (happy?) ending on the love story.

    Story
    "Suspense and Second-chances in a Small Town"

    Dylan and Alex were high school sweethearts. With a 3 year age difference, things didn't work out for them and after one awkward event they haven't seen each other in 4 years. Alex is now working with her Dad as a reporter for the local paper and going to college with intentions to get out of Dodge. Dylan is back as a Park Ranger with hopes of staying and adopting his two younger brothers and look after his dying Mum. They meet again over a mummified body found in the desert.

    The story gets more complex from there, including murder, attempted murders, possible cartel involvement, dirty cops, reservation casinos, kidnappings, and so on. It all gets too much for this not-so-sleepy Arizona town as the chips seem stacked against Alex and Dylan who could easily rekindle their feelings for each other.

    This story is complex but moves quite steadily along until suddenly the plot speeds up. I wasn't too thrilled with the narration but I did enjoy the story over all.

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "Fatal Exposure Review"

    This was my first book from Jessa Jacobs and I was not disappointed at all.
    This was an amazing book and both Tom and Jessa bring the characters to life in the best ways imaginable.

    I laughed, gasped and actually said WTF a few times while listening. Great cast of characters and a good plot line, I look forward to hearing more from both the author of this amazing series and the voice behind the narration.

    "Good Romantic Mystery"

    I love romance, especially when combined with mystery and suspense. Fatal Exposure offered all of these elements and was an enjoyable listen overall. The story had enough plot twists to keep me guessing and I particularly liked the vivid description of the scenery. Being so well written, I could very easily picture the story in my head. In general, the narration was well done but I didn't particularly care for the female voices. Still, I quite enjoyed Fatal Exposure: Desert Heat, Book 1 and would recommend it.

    "Mystery Infused With Romance"

    The story itself is wonderful. It's a mystery that sends the reader on a journey that's filled with murder, lies, toucher, and love. There is a lot of story lines through out the book that keeps you engrossed.

    The Narration was awful. The voice that was suppose to be the female was just irritating, at one point it just sounded comical and just didn't fit with the story. It really did take away from what is a wonderful story.

    Overall, I would suggest to anyone to actually read the story, because it's good one. Leave the audiobook alone and actually pick up the book.

    "1 star"

    I’m sorry I couldn’t finish listening to the book. The narrator was horrible. When he did different female voices they sounded comical, wasn’t bad at first. I didn’t realize the main female character was so young, so some of her actions made the story a little confusing to me. I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Great Romance and Action!"

    I love both romance and action stories. This book hit it with both. I thought the author did great with the imagery in this book and the emotions were conveyed so well by the narrator. I loved the twists and turns this book had. This review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I requested a review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would definitely look for more books by both the author and narrator.

    "Couldn’t finish it"

    I’m big on narration, I couldn’t get pass the narration on this book. Horrible women’s voice and changing to the different characters was hard to stomach for me

    "Thrilling story"

    I was surprised by how much information was given away early in the story, it meant there were less surprises than I normally expect but this didn't make the story less gripping.

    I really enjoyed the characters, they were complex and interesting. The setting was beautifully described and I could 'see' it in my mind. The plot was engaging and kept me up way too late listening when I should have been sleeping.

    The narration was a disappointment, the character voices were not believeable and both male and female voices were difficult to tell a part. The overall delivery was OK mostly natural but with a few odd pauses.

    I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    "great book!"

    So this book was pretty great. I loved all the detective work! a good HEA is always good too 😀

    the audio was good. the man trying to do the female voices was a little distracting. but over all it was good.

    I would recommend!

    "Cute Story"

    I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I thought the book was worth listening to. It has a light story. There was only a short part that was suspenseful. I would have liked a little more substance, but I will reserve that final opinion when I have listened to another book by this author. I didn't really care for the narrator. I had trouble distinguishing between the characters. Some times the women sounded like men and the men sounded like women. I don't think it flowed naturally. Probably just needs a little more experience.
