Publisher's Summary

For Blayne Keller, being in the wrong place at the wrong time just might turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to her. Once she stops running for her life.
A typical day at a Chicago travel agency turns deadly when Blayne Keller witnesses a mafia murder. Overnight, her life is turned upside down and she is thrust into WITSEC, the Federal Witness Protection Program, against her wishes. But the mob is determined to keep her from testifying and has someone on the inside leaking information about her every move. Only Alexi Nikolos, an alluring but dangerous WITSEC Inspector with an agenda of her own, can keep Blayne alive - but it's not an easy task when the sparks between them are flying faster than the bullets aimed at their heads.

So much sexual harassment, almost rapey

Audio quality: Very inconsistent quality with multiple obvious dub overs. Also, the "Greek" accent of one of the main characters was questionable and hard to get past for me.

Storyline: Author's efforts to create sexual tension rely almost solely on sexual harassment, digressing at times into assault. That's not sexy. Apparently no means yes and if you push hard enough you will get the girl? This kept me fairly uncomfortable throughout the book.

Then, the final culmination was based on an impossibly unrealistic meeting of characters, and seemed to just be tacked on the the very end of the book.

It earned that second star because I did actually finish it, and the writing quality and character/story development was pretty good aside from the points mentioned above.

A Collection of Cliches

It wasn't a total disappointment I suppose, but it wasn't anything I'll listen to again w/o a complete loss of memory. Blayne while being way impulsive and totally lacking in maturity stumbles into the middle of a mob murder. Thus we're now treated to the written version of a TV crime show. The plucky, irrepressible amateur is convinced that she knows the situation and can protect herself much better than the professionals are able to. Then there is of course the compromised officer of the law keeping the mob apprised of the witnesses movements. varied assassination attempts are escaped and the two lesbians being thrown together will of course become very close. This seems to be rather unlikely given that Alexi is gorgeous, wealthy , sophisticated, educated and intelligent. Blayne on the other hand seems to be more of a pain than anything else, her constant sexual harassment of Lexi reminds me of a scene from Madmen. It feels wrong that such ridiculous frat boy come-ons would appeal to a woman like Lexi nor does Blayne come off as a particularly likable human being. I speak particularly of the manner in which she pursues whatever she wants in the moment without regard to either her own safety or anyone else's. I am a fan of the author's Alaskan series and the author is good at keeping the story moving so I decided it was close enough to 3 stars to round up.
