Summary

A new stand-alone contemporary romance that's faster, steamier, grittier...but with the emotional impact you've come to expect from New York Times best-selling author Mia Sheridan.

Wealthy socialite Olivia Barton never imagined her fiancé would disappear on what was supposed to be a routine business trip. She's even more heartbroken and confused when a hired private investigator tracks him half a world away, to a seaside town in Colombia. But the country has recently been ravaged by a massive earthquake and deadly tsunami, shutting down outside communication and making travel all but impossible. Still, Olivia is determined to make it to Colombia to find the answers she so desperately seeks. What she needs is a guide - a mercenary.

The man named Thomas arrives in shadows, an unmistakable air of danger about him, promising to help lead her through the ruined, crime-infested country. But when Thomas and Olivia find themselves fighting an undeniable attraction, danger takes on a whole new meaning. Then again, in the lush jungles of South America, all the rules are different, and Thomas and Olivia are about to discover that sometimes the thing you seek isn't necessarily the thing you find.

Enjoyable listen

More of an action romance and a bit different to Mia Sheridan’s usual stories, but still enjoyed it a lot. Similar to Jay Crownover and Tillie Cole action romance books, though those have the brutal action on the page, whereas in this story the brutal bits are only referred to by characters.

Not one of Sheridan's Best

I'm not even halfway through listening and know this story is not one of Sheridan's better stories. A bit disappointing as some of her other stories I've listened to are much better. It could be in part due to the narrators chosen as they are maybe not the best choice. I do wish writers would not write their female characters out to be so--- dense? Unintelligent? I'm not sure of the exact word but for gosh sakes, write them to be a bit smarter than what she has this Olivia chick. I don't care if you're a city or country girl- if you're going to a country such as Columbia, for gosh sakes write the character to do some research about the land, people, crime, etc. Wouldn't that just be common sense? I don't care if she's going for pleasure or to find the long lost fiancé, give the girl some brains.

What an adventure!

I have always enjoyed Mia's books! My favorite being Leo. I couldn't resist and used my credit on Seek. I have listened to all of her books and enjoy her Sign of Love (Zodiac) series. It's a shorter listen for me, but I LOVED it! Leo is still my favorite, but I rank Seek in my top 4 of Mia's books. I was not disappointed with this suspenseful, Columbia adventure trip. A stranger from the past (from one of her other books) makes an appearance. The steam occurs towards 3/4 of the book. Yes, worth my credit!

Animal abuse

The story was good , but I almost didn’t listen due to animal abuse. I skipped forward quite a bit. There were dog fighting rings....so unnecessary for a good story .

great book

For being a shirt book, I loved the depth of story and characters. The path to love felt rushed though. and the guy who read shouted the intimate scenes which was distracting.

Great story

I was glad to hear Carson Stinger mentioned because Stinger is my favorite Mia Sheridan book of all time. This book was good but I felt like the ending was rushed and you didn't really get a picture of what their life was like after reuniting. I enjoyed the narrators.

Crashing wave from a Luke warm ocean!

I really liked the first 25% of the book but then it started to fizzle a bit for me. The H is standoffish and the h is interested but keeps reminding herself of her sort of fiance who has been missing for a long time.

Cheating on the h side? Perspectives differ but since her 'fiance' had lied about his whereabouts, then disappeared without a trace for months, my take on it is no cheating.

Cheating on the H side... Yes/No/Wake up moment.

TSTL moment? Only one major and I am still scratching my head.

The ending? Ends faster than a Hallmark Movie!

Quick and fun plot

This was a quick listen with an interesting plot. It didn't play out quite like I thought and I liked the twist. Olivia is a strong woman who's never really known love and now her fiance has disappeared in Colombia. She hires Thomas to take her through the country to his last known place and they have an instant attraction. Thomas had a terrible childhood and sees a kinship in Olivia. I liked their interactions and the romance was well done. The audiobook had great narrators and the quick pacing of the story kept me engaged.

wish I had ignored the reviews and listened sooner !

I agree with the reviews that point out that it seemed rushed and the story went from 0 to 60 BUT Mia’s story depth doesn’t disappoint . Liked this book a lot partially because it’s wasn’t 12 hours of angst and back & forth.
