Publisher's Summary

Tracy Brandt considers himself a lucky man. He has a wonderful family, good friends, and a dependable job. His love life, however, features a cheating ex who, though out of the house, is not yet out of the picture - with a past that just might get Tracy killed.
Homicide inspector Cord Nolan wants nothing more than to show his best friend's little brother that he's a reliable man, but to do that he'll have to get Tracy to look past the player he used to be. It'll be a tough sell; reputation is everything, and Cord's is tarnished by his past indiscretions.
Tracy and Cord have spent five years trying to suffocate their fiery attraction under a blanket of grudging antagonism. When Tracy finds himself with a target on his back, Cord finally has the chance to ride to the rescue and break through the dam of Tracy's reserve. But he'd better be careful: if Cord is breaking the floodgates to wash away the past, he's going to have to hold tight to Tracy to make sure they're still standing when the tumult recedes.

Any additional comments?

Michael Anthony had some good moments. There were times when he really got into the flow of things and his narrating was as smooth as an eighteen year old scotch.

But other times it was bad. Like...bad. He changed character's accents, or garbled their voices so I couldn't tell who was speaking, and at one critical point he switched the character voices around...talk about confusing!

The good outweighs the bad, but not enough for me to recommend to others.

Gotta go 2.5 stars on this. And it kills me, because I am a HUGE Mary Calmes fan. But there were two major plot points that I just couldn't get over.

Other than that...I like that Mary Calmes creates similar characters (beautiful, cut, ripped, gorgeous, stubborn, sarcastic, etc.) and that works for me....usually. But something with this one just fell flat.

Save yourself and read Acrobat, or the Matter of Time series, or, hell, *any* of her other contemporary romances.

Matter of Time Lite

If you liked A Matter of Time you will like this book. It is complete with a "Jory and Sam like" MCs, namely Tracy and Cord. It has a good murder mystery and protector vibe, a loving family on Tracy's side, and all round fun listen. Although there are a couple of characters that seem to go nowhere; which leads me to believe there may be a sequel. The narrator does a good job overall and really kept me engaged. I actually like the audio better than the ebook. Worth a credit.
