Summary

He lives in the shadows to protect her. But to save her, he'll have to rise from the grave.  

Lily  

The day Shane boarded the plane for basic training, I was happy for him. He escaped a life we both despised. Then he was killed in action before I had the chance to tell him I loved him. Now I write letters he'll never read. Talk to a cold gravestone, heard only by the wind...and maybe that guy in a baseball cap I only glimpse before he disappears.  

Shane  

I didn't need my father's money to become one of the deadliest men on earth: an assassin on an elite special forces team. I had no idea the cost of achieving my dream would be...everything. Now all I can do is watch from the shadows while Lily, untouched by the filth that clings to my soul, cries over my grave. Leaving her was hardest thing I ever had to do. But when her life is threatened, keeping my distance isn't an option.  

Because I'm the only man on earth who can save her.  

Contains mature themes.

Even better in audio!

I loved reading this story but hearing it was even better. Love this series and this author. I’m so happy to finally have some more great military romance audio books.

Awesome Beginning to a Great Series!

I am a huge fan of military and paramilitary romance and this is a great addition to my collection! The plot is very engaging and I love the characters! Not only did I thoroughly enjoy the well-crafted action and suspense, the personal lives of the characters and their interaction are the greatest draw for me, and both of those are written extremely well. Riley Edwards definitely knows how to hook her readers, and Troy Duran and C.J. Bloom do an incredible job bringing her stories to life. Troy has been my favorite narrator for quite a while; he always delivers his very best, and I was extremely impressed with C.J. I am quite particular about female narrators. I have a very short list of favorites, and she's quickly become one.

New author

This author is new to me but I love the 2 books I’ve listened to so far. The stories were great and I loved the characters she’s created. I’m going to get more of her books right away.

Missing details

Good listen but many details missing as it's a short book. Moves to quickly for the story to be interesting.

Disapointed by romance side

Good narration just disappointed by the romance side of this book. My fault I didn't read the info provided in the description more thoroughly. Just wanted the Black Ops type thriller without the "steamyness".
