Summary

FBI agent Alex Sandoval has never forgiven himself for not protecting a young girl who was gravely injured and her mother killed before her eyes during his first hostage negotiation 12 years ago. Now Jade Butler is a cop herself, assigned to a prestigious multi-agency task force hunting for the killer of several young girls in Austin, Texas - and Alex is the agent in charge of the case.

They never met all those years ago, but Jade recognizes his voice as the one she still hears in her dreams, the voice that has comforted her through many a terrifying flashback. Her role on the task force is undercover, serving as bait for a madman, yet Alex cannot stop trying to protect her as he was unable to do years ago. Tensions ratchet between them as old memories vie with a powerful new attraction, and when Jade is taken hostage by the killer, it's Alex's worst nightmare as he must negotiate once again - only this time, it's to save the woman he loves.

Excellent series!

Jean Brashear is a favorite author of mine!! I love the world she's created and can lose myself reading/listening for hours. This book is one of my favorites of hers. I didn't want to pause when needed. It can be read as a standalone, but is great with the series. I loved the NCIS/Criminal Minds feel to this book.

Eric Dove is an excellent narrator. His talent exceeds so many others. Love his smooth voice.

Jade Was Not My Favorite

I listened to the Audiobook and thought Eric G. Dove did a great job. I honestly liked the narration more than the book. No, not more than the book, just more than Jade. I would give this 3.5 stars.

I found her to be so irritating at times. I understand how you have to assert yourself in a male dominated field. Jade was so focused on proving herself and Alex was so focused on feeling guilty that they couldn't see the forest for the trees.

I think what irritated me about Jade was her defensiveness. Alex's issue with their past, and her age got to be a bit much also.

The actual story was pretty interesting. The culprit was no great mystery, but that didn't take away from the story. There was mystery, suspense, some action, romance, and a couple of steamy scenes. Jade gets the things she has missed most in life. Alex and Jade get their HEA.

I voluntarily listened to and reviewed this Audiobook received from the author.

Alex & Jade

Alex and Jade have a history. Alex is also overprotective and tries to fight his new attraction to Jade. Both act immature and avoid speaking about their issues. I always enjoy the narrator, Eric G. Dove.

Loved it!

Each time I listen to a Jean Brashear audiobook, I am treated to a fine story. It’s a romance with a angst, secrets, suspense, danger, and above all love and family. I really loved listening to the story of FBI Agent, Alex Sandoval and young cop, Jade Butler. This is book 3 in the Lone Star Lovers, a subset in the Texas Heroes Series.
I received a complimentary copy of this audible. And I have chosen to leave an honest review. I highly recommend this audiobook or ebook or whatever form you’re accustomed to for your reading pleasure!

A great suspense romance

This standalone audiobook is a wonderful suspense romance story.
PBI Agent Alex Sandoval met fifteen year old Jade Butler during a stand off while she and her mother were held hostage. Her Mom died and Jade, ever grateful to the man that saved her, though he thinks otherwise, was whisked away.
Twelve years later they meet again. She is now a respected cop in Austin, working in the same mission as Alex. Feelings erupt and when danger comes and Jade is kidnapped by a killer, it might be too late for them.
This was an action packed story, filled with suspense and whodunit. Add romance , and you have a winner.
Kudos to the narrator, Eric G. Dove, for his delivery and bringing the story to life.

Captivating!

Jean Brashear has a powerful, distinct writing style that draws you into her stories and makes you feel as though you are living with her characters. This 3rd book in the Lone Star series is captivating from beginning to end. There is a blend of romance & suspense with unforgettable characters you can't help but fall in love with.
I love Jean Brashear’s books and always enjoy listening to Eric Dove bring them to life!
