Publisher's Summary

This title has been previously published and has been re-edited for your enjoyment.
Wendy Warner is a bit of an oddball. Raised in an orphanage, she's found solace and friendship by watching the television show, Space Adventures, and participating in its fan clubs. Twice a month, Wendy comes to work dressed in a costume from the show that she wears to charity events. She's been able to ignore the looks of distain from many of her coworkers, but when the president of the company gazes at her with something more, she knows she's in deep.
Draco Powers rather likes the way the uniform hugs all her curves in the just the right places. He's also a real-life Guardian who told the world that, yes, some people had superhuman abilities, but, no, they wouldn't work for free or without health insurance. Some people refer to him with derision as the "Capitalist Guardian". While Draco doesn't care what he's called, he's also being hunted by a group called the Organization, whose motives are unclear and yet still cause death and destruction wherever they go.
The Organization has decided that Draco's biggest weakness is the way he cares about his employees and has chosen Wendy as their next target. To save her, Draco will have to come to terms with his real feelings and the reason he's long resisted complicated relationships... but he's running out of time.

ENJOYED THE STORY, BUT NOT THE NARRATOR

I have read or listen to a great amount of books in the Fantasy/PNR genre, so I was excited when I read the synopsis of this book. It intrigued me, that idea of a superhero (or Guardian as they are called in the book) having a corporation where he charges for his services. It makes sense, when you are rob, the cops don’t volunteer their services they get paid for their time. But that’s beside the point, of this review. Anyways, so Draco is a guardian and Wendy is her handler. Basically Wendy is his glorified personal assistant. She keeps track of his daily clients, investigates all his clients and their problem before he sits down to meet with them, makes sure he gets enough rest and sees a medic if injured and so on. But Draco’s nemesis soon learns that his greatest weakness is the people closest to him. That puts Wendy in danger and under the protection of her own guardian.

The narrator voice is terrible for this book. His regular voice is just fine but when he tries to do different voices for the characters he fails miserably. I wanted the voice for the hero to masculine, deep, rich and delicious. Instead the narrator’s voice had the texture of an old man speaking and sometimes just downright comical. I don’t want to visualize my grandfather speaking when I think of the hero. I want Chris Hemsworth not Adam West. He made all the male characters sound wrong, so wrong.

IMO, if you can read the book, I would probably do that. It's a great story just not worth the listen.
