Indy Savage is the daughter of a cop, a bookstore owner, and a wild child. She's loved Lee Nightingale since she was five years old. Once she was old enough, she would practically throw herself at him, only to be rejected. After feeling humiliated by the last rejection, she made sure to avoid him for good and move on. Now she's in trouble because of her coffee 'artiste' Rosie who apparently has some diamonds these men want. He has dealt pot to the wrong people and now they seem to be after him, which in turn means her too. How do they know? They get shot at. The only one who can help them is the one she wants to keep at arms lengths, Lee.
Lee Nightingale is well... who the hell knows. But he is an alpha bad-ass and has a command center, nuff said... Lee has wanted Indy for quite some time. He was waiting for his moment where they would both be more stable and not crazy hormone ridden teens. Unfortunately Indy has been avoiding him for a decade. Now, he has a chance with her and he isn't giving it up. He will do anything to protect her *sigh*, and anything to have her. I will admit, I was not impressed by him in the beginning. He came off as a total A-hole and he could be too blunt. But as I kept listening, he grew on me. Plus, he was really sexy and delicious, so it wasn't hard.
This book had some action, some quite hilarious moments, Cool Action, a bit of steam (nothing too crazy hot and that disappointed me a bid), and of course some sexy alpha bad-ass men. I was so frustrated, these two, were interrupted SO many times throughout the book while they were 'trying' to get it on. I felt their pain... All of the characters were a bunch of oddballs but together they were all perfect and the banter was just awesome. There were a few moments however, that I felt the story dragged on a bit, which had me wondering in my mind but then the story would redeem it's self once again.
All in all it was a Ok listen but i'm not sure that i will continue with the series.

DNF at 50% (7 hours of listening). I give 1 star for the book plus an additional star for the narration, which was actually pretty good.
If you are a hard-core, die-hard Kristen Ashley fan, look the other way! Shield your eyes from this review because, I promise you, it will only make you mad!
I honestly don't get the appeal of KA. This is my 4th book from her and they ALL feel the SAME! The SAME! Those staccato sentences, the way the heroines are always wrong and figure out that the man was right all along, the helpless females... I actually think that her books have turned me off from "alpha males" for a long time.
Aside from the recycled plot, my biggest issue with this was Indy. I haven't met a heroine that personified "Too Stupid To Live" so perfectly in... maybe ever. How many times can a person get kidnapped? How many times can someone run into danger all for some coffee-weilding acquaintance? How many times can someone try to "leave the cops out of it" because she wants to handle it on her own? I just can't any more...
I wasn't even interested enough to see how Indy and Lee got on as a couple. And I can't stand how KA leaves in so many mundane details. This book was hours/100 pages too long. Just endless boring scenes...
I'm going to have to wait a couple of years before attempting another book by this author. I risk dismemberment by her fans and disownment from my friends who love her work every time I try to read another one of her stories.

A great Series! I started by reading the series in book format. After reading the whole series a number of times (yes its that good!!) I ordered these to listen to in the car on long journeys.
I found the narrator really good and believable, and i appreciated aspects of the story,that i had obviously missed by reading it.
I hope that audible bring out the other series's of Kristen Ashley, as the books are naturally funny and Susannah Jones reads them so well, that i find myself smiling and laughing in the car.

I loved this book and the story. Everything about it was amazing but parts I was disappointed about firstly Lee could be a total dick at times and be very hard to like even with his smouldering sexy badass I'm macho and in change attitude.
My other complaint and the reason for 4stars is Lee's and Idie final get together after you've been tease within an inch of your sanity. It was left lot up to reader to image a sexy dirty things Lee had been promising to do to idie. Other than that I'm totally in love with this series and I'm only first book in. Can't wait for more.
Okay, here's the thing reading is my addiction, reading a book gives your imagination unlimited power and it's hard for any narrator to keep up with unlimited power. Having said that this came damn close. I'd call it a draw!
It's not a point of what you like best but there is so much to like or rather there is not one negative thing to say about the entire series!
I had never listened to any of Susannah Jone's other performances - Love finding a new narrator i like.
This series is a sure thing! Every single title in the series is fantastic, in fact they get better as the series progresses because you get to revisit all the characters you have already fallen in love with.
Kristen Ashley was without a doubt the best kept secret in the romance genre - I have been a fan since I found her on Smashwords and impatiently await every book she publishes. Never disappoints - NOT ONCE!!

Really loved this book. It's funny and easy to get through. Nice light entertainment. It's the beginning of a series. It's not something you have to think to much to listen to but it isn't so boring and predictable you don't want to finish it.
