Publisher's Summary

Former Marine sniper and current NSA agent Jack Stone has a new face to go with his new identity. But he still has the same tortured memories - which include the woman he let get away years ago. Now his new assignment in Miami will put him so close to the woman he's never been able to forget, he could reach out and touch her - if only she weren't under suspicion.
When Sophie Moreno uncovers evidence linking the medical supply company she works for with arms smuggling - and worse - she doesn't know who to turn to. After a shocking betrayal, she realizes that the only person she can trust is a mysterious new person in the company - a man with hauntingly familiar eyes. As Sophie questions her intense attraction to this man and Jack struggles not to blow his cover, the two of them race against the clock to stop terrorists from killing scores of people - starting with them.
Contains mature themes.

Great Romantic Suspence - No BDSM

Finally, a new romantic novel with a strong, sexy man who DIDN'T enjoy hurting women.

Jack (trained killer and NSA agent) had seen too much violence already, so he had no desire to beat & abuse women (BDSM). In fact Jack liked and respected women, particularly his childhood friend Sophie.

Sophie, a strong & intelligent woman, grew up in foster care yet she was brave and mature with healthy self respect. Although Sophie was extremely attracted to Jack, she would never allow him or any other man to hurt or degrade her.

Sophie was raped as a teenager, which contrary to BDSM propaganda she did NOT find an erotic or exciting experience. Likewise, Jack was horrified by Sophie's assault and felt guilty that he had not been there to protect her.

Targeted had a well written plot, with engaging characters and snappy dialogue. I enjoyed listening as Sophie and Jack met again as adults, renewing their friendship and fell in love. The sex scenes were tender and sexy, explicit without being pornographic, showing exactly how talented Kate Reus is.

Where does Targeted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top of the shelf at the moment. Sophie Eastlake is awesome at bringing Katie Reus' book to life as she reads it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed getting to know Jack Stone in Targeted. I find myself drawn to Levi. Curious about his story and all he is getting in to.

What does Sophie Eastlake bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Sophie brings character. She is an amazing reader..knows just when to pause or raise her voice. You really get a feel for the scenery with her narration.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was drawn in. Did not want to put down my ipad. Found myself emotionally connected to Sophie. She had been through so much.

Any additional comments?

This is a must have in your collection!
