Publisher's Summary

Intrigue, romance, suspense....
Defiant supports horse rescues around the world. With every purchase, a donation will be sent on your behalf to help with their mission of rescue, rehabilitation, and education. Together we can end horse slaughter for good.
When love turns deadly, the beloved play dead.
Western Maryland farm girl Kate Fallon wanted more than horse pastures. Now a trial lawyer in the affluent Annapolis law arena and married to multi-millionaire Jack Reynolds, also the US Attorney of Maryland, she's got it all - at least everyone thinks so.
Behind closed doors, Jack is as cruel as he is intelligent, as controlling as he is handsome. When his tirades turn physical, Kate must fight for her life. But her efforts to leave him will take her down a rabbit hole to secrets she doesn't fully understand, and that Jack will kill to suppress.
Two years later, Kate's keeping secrets of her own. Living as Charlie Robertson, a take-no-lip general contractor, she's secure most days knowing her nightmare is right where she left him - 2,000 miles due east under FBI scrutiny. Wielding a nail gun instead of a briefcase suits her, as does the small mining town of Creede, Colorado. With its scenic views and open spaces, life is simple and so are her rules: lock all doors, check for signs she's been followed, and don't get involved romantically ever again.
Unfortunately, retired Navy SEAL and tourist Nick Foster didn't get the memo. Mysterious, sexy, and powerfully attracted to Charlie, Nick typically likes things easy. Only easy isn't in Charlie's vocabulary, and neither is trust. Worst part is, she's right not to trust him, and yet he can't help falling for her. But love won't save either one of them if she discovers his true identity or doesn't give him what he came for. His boss won't tolerate failure.

Incredible romantic suspense!

--I was given this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

This is my my first P J O'Dwyer book, and I was a little concerned that it was book 2 of the series. Let me tell you, it stands alone and keeps you interested the entire 10 hours! If romantic suspense is what you like to listen to, this book is for you. Kate, married to an abusive powerful husand, fakes her own death to get away from him. For 3 years, she is able to escape her past, but as life has it, things always catch up with you. She creates a new persona, comes into her own, has a new life when Nick walks into it. The first man she has let in...can she trust him? What will she do when she finds out who he really is and who he is working for? Will her husband find her? This story kept me going the whole time.

Tara Radcliffe does an amazing job narrating this book. A narrator can make a book, and her performance definitely kept the earbuds in. She created the emotion, fear and happiness throughout the story as well as able to differentiate her characters. Loved this and will be watching for the others in the series.

Ended up loving this book!

Any additional comments?

To be honest I had a lot of trouble listening to the first few chapters I was really confused for some reason.. unsure if it was because I was multitasking I was really hesitant about finishing the book and put it off… I LOVED this book… I am so glad I gave this another chance… It could have been I wasn’t paying attention at first but I ended up loving this book… The narrator did a great job giving each character their own voice…. I felt I was in each location with the excellent descriptors the author used… I am excited to read the other books in the series.
