Summary

Former Navy SEAL Nixon Swagger is home. After 12 years of service and twice as many deployments, all Nix wanted was quiet. He’d sought the solace of the land he’d grown up on and found the peace he needed to silence the noise and figure out his next move. 

Nixon’s stay was supposed to be temporary. He wasn’t supposed to meet a feisty, headstrong woman who made his pulse race and set his body on fire. Falling in love hadn’t been part of his plan. Taking a government contract to stop a homegrown terrorist group hadn’t been, either, but when the organization threatens to attack Philadelphia, he had no choice but to accept.

McKenna Wilson was living. Every day was the same. Raising her two teenage siblings didn’t leave time for much else. Most days, she was okay with that. Then, she bumped into the sexy war hero and, in an instant, her world changed. She had no idea falling for Nixon would be so dangerous. Now, she was going head-to-head with the small-town’s dirty sheriff who was hell-bent on ruining Nixon and avenging a 15-year-old grudge. She’d lost her heart, but losing her life wasn’t part of the plan.

Nixon Swagger had learned a few things as a Navy SEAL - adapt, improvise, and overcome were among the many. In the middle of an inferno, so ominous even Dante wouldn’t buy a ticket, Nixon must adapt to his new surroundings and overcome multiple threats before he loses the woman he loves.

Great Romantic Suspense…Phenomenal Narration

Audiobook review: I really enjoyed this book. The story was so great and the narration was phenomenal as always with Erin Mallon & Joe Arden.

Really loved how Nixon helped with McKenna and her siblings. I really loved the connection he made with Zach. He was the man Zach needed in his life and he taught him how to work.

While Nixon and McKenna’s attraction was immediate, their relationship grew slowly. They didn’t rush into anything and both wanted to make sure her siblings were ok with their relationship. I loved how she was able to come in and help him with his team and their mission.

I’m definitely excited to continue this series and I truly hope Erin and Joe narrate the other books.

fantastic!

This is my first book by this author and it won't be my last! Awesome story and narration. Suspense, passion, and I really liked the push of the message against sexual abuse. Can't wait for the next book!

Great start to a series

This is the first book that I've listened to from this author and I thought it was a great start to a series. I really like the premise of former SEALS coming together to form the Gemini Group and I look forward to the rest of the series.

Nixon's Promise

First for me by this author.
I was pleasantly surprised, to be honest with you I wasn’t sure what to expect but I sure did enjoy these characters.
McKenna has just become guardian to her two younger teenage siblings and it isn’t an easy transition.

Nixon lives next door and fines out that his new next door neighbour is McKenna and her siblings.
I love that he takes her brother under his wing.

It did feel a little like insta-love but I am not mad at it because so much happens from the time they meet until the end of the book it’s understandable why we get that feeling.

I like that McKenna understands Nixon’s job what was great was how McKenna became an asset to the team too. I wasn’t expecting that and quiet liked it.

Narration, I love Erin’s narration she just does the voices so well she gives everyone their own sound I love it. Joe isn’t my favorite but I still enjoy his work.
Think I might have to invest in the rest of the series.
