This audiobook seals the deal, I have become totally hooked on anything Ms Reus writes.
This story is part of the author’s series Red Stone Security, and if like me , you haven’t read them, rest assure that it’s a stand alone.
The main characters are Kell and Charlotte. He is a member of the Red Stone Security company, a former SEAL and FBI agent who a year ago spent an unforgettable night with Charlotte. Charlotte, whose deceased husband had been an FBI agent , left that night when Kell made a confession. Now a year has gone by and he sees her at a party the Red Stone Security has been hired to keep the safe. A shock for both , but an opportunity that Kell will not pass up . He wants a chance to talk with her.
Little does Kell know that Charlotte has kept a secret from him.
Things get even more complicated when she witnesses a murder.
This is a fast paced story filled with suspense, murder, bad cops, the Cartel, a crazy woman, a baby, hunky guys and of course , romance and the possibility of second chances.
I must add that the narrator did an excellent job with the voices and his intonation.
I was gifted this audiobook. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
I only listen to audiobooks while I'm doing my household chores each week and honestly, I try not to spend too much time in those chores each week. As a result, it can sometimes take me over a month to get through a full audiobook. That's a bit too much time to invest, but that's where this audio was perfect for me. I'm a romantic suspense girl and with just over 3 hours of audio on the unabridged version of this story, it was perfect for me.
And in this book, that shortened story worked for me simply because Kell and Charlotte have their history behind them. Kell loved Charlotte for years, but she was married to his best friend. A best friend that she found out was cheating on her after his death. In the midst of the confusion of her husband's death, they got swept away with desire and had a one night stand. Kell wanted it to be so much more. Charlotte couldn't handle that and fled. Then she had a baby...Kell's baby.
This story takes place when that baby is three months old...so basically a year after their single night. Like I said, I'm not sure if this shortened story would have worked for me without their history. Charlotte also realizes that she did Kell wrong by not getting in touch with him when she got pregnant. I love that she owned up to that and instead of bristling at Kell's edicts, she agrees that he has some valid reasons for his demands. That was such a turnaround from most hidden baby stories and I liked the change. Also, the high drama of the situation (she stumbles on a murder) makes their sudden closeness even more believable.
I liked this one. I think the narrator did a great job on the audiobook and I love the short time needed to commit to this book. I plan to listen to more of the Red Stone series this way. I hope they all play out as well for me. I think that they will.
