I didn’t believe the previous reviews about the narrator. I listened to the sample and it appeared fine. Unfortunately, the sample didn’t include the narrator’s interpretation of any male dialog. It was so incredibly bad that I wanted to laugh. It is like a mix of a monster and Sesame Street. With that being said, the story was pretty good (if you can get past the narrator).

This was a pretty good story. It's the first I've read by this author and I liked it enough that I've already bought the second book in the series to read next.
Ali is a very nice woman. She's the sister of one of the Black Knights and was crushed by his death. She's very sweet but TBH, there were a few times when she seemed too soft and sweet but as the story progresses she does show some spunk and backbone that made me like her. Sometimes she came across a little ditsy too but through most of the book she was working on major lack of sleep so it's kind of excusable. Regardless I liked Ali. She met Nate years before through her brother but he always acted like he didn't like her which is too bad because she's always been attracted to him. When strange things start happening to her after her brother's death, she knows she has to go to Nate and the Black Knights for help.
Nate is a good guy but he can be a jerk, especially when it comes to Ali. He's been attracted to her since he first met her but couldn't go there because she was his best friend's little sister. He's acted like a jerk towards her to keep her at arms length but this becomes a problem when they find out that she's in serious trouble due to something he brother was involved with. Nate does have what he thinks (faultily) is a solid reason that him and Ali could never be together so he keeps pushing her away. The problem is that by doing this he's just hurting her more.
There's a mystery to uncover and there's some exciting times trying to track down what Ali's brother was involved in and why someone's after her. Nate and Ali do the back and forth dance pretty much the whole time...one step closer, two back. They give in to their attraction but then Nate pulls the butthole card on Ali the next morning (because of his "reasons"). Things aren't easy for them and on either the personal or professional fronts but they do manage to get the needed info to stop the bad guy and bring the danger to Ali to an end. Unfortunately, as soon as things are settled, Nate disappears and Ali can't get a hold of him at all. Fortunately, someone interferes and helps prompt a resolution that ends happily.
This was a very good story. The characters aren't prefect in their actions but then who is really. I still liked them even with their flaws. The action plot was interesting but not so complex that it pulled away from the rest of the story. I enjoyed this story and will be reading the next book in the series. I'd recommend this book. Thumbs up. :D
*Note - I listened to the audiobook version of this. The narrator was alright but her male voices were very growly. I got used to it after a while but at first it was a little weird.

This was a different book for me, I am still not sure why I bought it, but I really enjoyed it. I altered my work so that I could listen to it in 2 afternoons. A romance but with some well thought out facets to the characters. It puts into words how one hopes our soldiers do react to, and come to terms with, what they do. It kept me interested without being on the edge of my chair dreading what was going to happen next.
