In this gripping thriller, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life.
She used to work for the US government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn't even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.
Now she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They've killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon.
When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it's her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous.
Resolving to meet the threat head-on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of.
In this tautly plotted novel, Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why she's one of the world's best-selling authors.
"Even with Archer's outstanding portrayal of Alex, secondary characters Kevin and Val still steal all their scenes, thanks to Archer's memorable voices. Pack your go bag and enter Meyer's breathless romantic suspense." (AudioFile)

I just kept thinking, "who cares?"
Yes, I should've known better than to trust Stephanie Meyer.
Dear god. A couple twists and plot would be great.

I'll always read her stuff...but
This was an easy read (listen) but I honestly felt it was overwritten. There were passages that went too long and too descriptive. I also felt like the "love story" was a bit forced and implausible. While we all expect a love story in Meyer's books, this was "too easy" and neither character resisted it much.
For identical twins, there was more hierarchy between the brothers than seem natural. Kevin calling his TWIN "kid" was annoying.
While this was an easy listen and entertaining, if I were reading it, I would have skipped big paragraphs of description and "telling". She does a whole bunch of TELLING and not enough SHOWING. This makes sense for a Young Adult novel, but this was meant for an adult reading audience...thus why no mention of the vampire books on the cover......
