There are two things Navy SEAL Jazz Zeringue knows:
1) his black ops team will always have his back, and
2) there's nothing more enticing than a woman of mystery
When the best of intentions gets Jazz arrested overseas, he couldn't be more surprised to find Vivi Verreau ready to spring him out of jail. Obviously more than the civilian she claims to be, he's sure Vivi is hiding an agenda...and he's determined to stick by her side until he uncovers all her secrets.
A covert agent who shrouds herself in disguises, and who fearlessly jumps into dangerous situations without thoughts for her own safety, Vivi has no need for a protector. But if she is to have any hope of completing her most important mission, she'll have no choice but to recruit Jazz and his men.
And when everything explodes around them, they will need each other more than they ever imagined...

My commute is between 2.5 and 3.5+ hours a day so I listen to ALOT of audiobooks. I have been waiting for this series for a long time and it did not disappoint. Definitely one of my top favorites audiobooks.
This is part of a series with characters who show up throughout Ms. Low's books. She is such a delicious writer. She brings out different and compelling reactions to each book she writes and characters she introduces. Her main character focus in this novel is Jazz and Vivi. Sexy, sexy, sexy. A Cajun accented hero and a French accented heroine with a sizzling attraction, but Ms. Low also teases us readers with appearances by T, Hawk, Shahruhk (my most intriguing hero-crush), the hottie Jed, the bold Cucumber, and many other characters her fans LOVE (and want more of).
I love the scenes where Jazz meets with Grandmamasan. I won't tell you why to spoil the surprise, but it's funny. His relationship with Grandmamasan sets the rhythm for the growing relationship between Jazz and Vivi. I also enjoyed the scenes where Vivi - and now Jazz and his Seal team - try to defeat the child sex-traffickers. It's a tough situation but an amazing read. The idea that poor parents push their daughters into the sex industry to help out the family and many time are ashamed of them for doing that work while they take the money… well, you know it happens, but Ms. Low took me into their world and showed me the total desperation of their lives. Not only has she entertained me with her writing, she has educated me as well. I love books where I learn something new that makes me Google new topics and expand my mind.
I loved the scene where Jazz tries to help a young girl who works in the sex industry. His morals, sense of injustice, and kind heart made him make a decision to help a young girl in the worst possible of situations and he ends up getting into trouble for doing the honorable thing. No regrets. It is just what you do. Who doesn't want to know someone who fights for justice, even if it inconveniences them?
The voice over actor Kevin Foley did a great job. His transitions from one character to the next was seamless, especially doing the the women's voices. He flowed through the different accents and male/female voices like a pro and trust me, after listening to hundreds and hundreds of books it is not everyone's forte, but he pulled it off. Listening to her novels is such a different experience than reading it. Mr. Foley brought an even deeper richness to the story line that I hope he does the rest of the series and soon (because I'm a greedy book lover).
The thing about Ms. Low's books is that each book is apart of her "epic" story arch/series. I think the readers who may struggle with it expect it to be like every other Romantic Suspense and that's indeed is a struggle. Ms. Low writes outside the "formula", plus she writes with a very strong masculine POV (she's a roofer in real life and works predominantly with men, so she's been let into the male world in a way most women are not). Some of readers might not immediately gravitate towards this type of grittiness, which is too bad for them. I say, give it a try and enjoy a different kind of suspense novel. You will fall in love with her work and you too will be hounding her for more of "her men".
