Attorney Kenneth King can't wait to get away on vacation and leave the courtroom behind. He only has one last errand to do for his boss: drop off a flash drive to fellow attorney Emma James. But as soon as the drive is in his hands, his boss is murdered and Kenneth becomes the next target. With nowhere left to turn, he reaches out to Emma for help, but that only puts them both in danger.
Emma James just wants to settle into her new job and provide a good life for her little girl. That is all threatened when she gets a flash drive with information on it that points to an imminent terrorist attack on US soil. With her choices dwindling and her vulnerabilities made crystal clear, Emma is pushed to the limit by those who want her dead, and the rest of the country to suffer. How far will she be forced to go to save the lives of everyone around her, including those she loves?
Kenneth and Emma have to find a way to work together to stop the terrorists, but it's the most difficult trial of their lives - and the verdict will be life or death.

This review is from my wife:
Have not read the print copy.
Kenneth. Strong male lead always helps. He wasn't ex-special forces or SEALs, just an attorney. Everyday kind of guy with strong sense of morality. Emma was also good but seemed a bit weak at times. Maybe timid is more the right description. She does have her shining moments though. Julia, the daughter, was hilarious.
Never had to wonder who was speaking. The female voices were so much better than I would have thought. I forgot it was a guy narrating during their dialogue. The diversity of voices was great.
Great escape from the daily grind. Lots of romance books feel like soap operas or they have that retarded love triangle. This one did not. The characters were real, dealing with everyday challenges. Made them feel relatable to me. The twist at the end with Kenneth (no spoilers don't worry) was pretty good.
Characters and sweet story!
