Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Sandra Brown jolts the listener from the first minute of this heart-pounding story of corruption, treachery, and ceaseless deception...where nothing is what it seems and every truth brought to light exposes a darker lie.
When Jordie Bennet and Shaw Kinnard lock eyes across a disreputable backwater bar, something definitely sparks. Shaw gives off a dangerous vibe that makes men wary and inspires women to sit up and take notice. None feel that undercurrent more strongly than savvy businesswoman Jordie, who doesn't belong in a seedy dive on the banks of a bayou. But here she is...and Shaw Kinnard is here to kill her.
As Shaw and his partner take aim, Jordie is certain her time has come. But Shaw has other plans and abducts Jordie, hoping to get his hands on the $30 million her brother has stolen and, presumably, hidden. However, Shaw is not the only one looking for the fortune. Her brother's ruthless boss and the FBI are after it as well. Now on the run from the feds and a notorious criminal, Jordie and Shaw must rely on their wits - and each other - to stay alive.
Miles away from civilization and surrounded by swampland, the two play each other against their common enemies. Jordie's only chance of survival is to outwit Shaw, but it soon becomes clear to Shaw that Jordie isn't entirely trustworthy, either. Was she in on her brother's scam, or is she an innocent pawn in a deadly vendetta? And just how valuable is her life to Shaw, her remorseless and manipulative captor? Burning for answers - and for each other - this unlikely pair ultimately make a desperate move that could be their last.
With nonstop plot twists and the tantalizing sexual tension that has made Sandra Brown one of the world's best-loved authors, Sting will keep listeners on the edges of their seats until the final minutes.

Good, but long

I enjoyed Friction and mean streak better. I didn't think the chemistry was developed well. The story was good, with good twists... But it took a long time to get there. There were times I thought it went on.

The narrator has a great voice for a gruff manly man. But fir the women, wish he didn't make the female character sound winey. She needed to be a little more snotty instead of weak.

Children and fireplaces do not mix well!!

I like this book and thought it moved along at a good pace. There really weren't any lulls nor did it get draggy so I would say that makes for good listening!
There was some predictably in the story however in the end that was removed because I never saw it coming. This book has the kind of climax that makes you sit back and just shake your head because the way this was written there is no way to even make a guess.
**SPOILER **Initially I found the story to be a little transparent and some scenes kind of silly. Woman is kidnapped and threatened with death if someone doesn't pay up but is having sexual fantasies about kidnapper! Who does this? Then kidnapper is injured and hospitalized and he is fantasizing about the woman and checks to make sure everything is in working order just in case the opportunity arises (no pun intended!). Really? While handcuffed to a hospital bed and IVs and pain meds and this is what he thinking about? Sorry, I get hung up on the little things.
Anyway it all comes down to a sisters guilt. As young children her and her brother got into a fight right next to an open fireplace and his pajamas went up in flames scarring him for life. She feels guilty and he takes full advantage.
I thought this was a very good book otherwise and purchased it on sale for $4.95. If you read this review within the next few days (written 9/15/17) I would Recommend purchasing it for that price, however it is a good book and would be worth a credit.
