Publisher's Summary

Government assassin Andrea McNeilly's job normally requires keeping her mouth shut and not asking questions. Not anymore. Despite her sass and unique skills as a Shifter, she's out of luck.
After a botched hit on a Vampire's human servant, Andy's on the run. Right in her way is an over-sized Werewolf Alpha with the attitude of a brute and allure of a Norse god. An assassin requires a heart of stone, but the passion provoked by Wick puts a chink in Andy's emotional armor.
Andy's desire to trust Wick is blocked by her painful past and Wick's allegiance to the very Vampire who now owns her future. Can Andy reconcile her yearnings for Wick and discover the truth behind the kill order? Or has destiny already selected her for a horrific fate?

I think this was a good start to a new series

I think this was a good start to a new PNR/UF series; I liked the secret agent taking out the supernatural aspect. I enjoyed the read somewhat – I didn’t hate it but didn’t love it either. I was actually really excited when I started this book. It immediately pulls you in, with the assassination and attempted escape. The mystery that is Andi and the and her trying to figure out what she really is, what it means all the while trying to find the person who set her up for the latest botched job. Then it started to read like every other PNR/UF out there and I started to get bored with it. I had hope that the romance happening between Andi and Wick would help move things along but no….just a lot of build up, and sexual tension with no pay off at the end. While not quite a cliff hanger ending…..not everything is wrapped up (duh, otherwise you would not have a series) however I don’t really have a desire to move on to the next book. While I listened to the first half of it pretty quick it took me 11 days to get through the last 4 hours

Laurel Schroeder is a new to me narrator and she did an awesome job with the characters and the voices she gave them. I do look foreword to listening to more from her

Over all the writing and characterization were good. The narration was good, the actual story I’m still uncertain how I feel about it….it started out strong and then just kind of lost its momentum.

Audiobook was provided for review by the narrator.

Such a Fun book!

What a fun exciting book! I really enjoyed the twist to the paranormal world! These characters were tough, funny and sexy. Wick was my favorite, I love a strong silent type...aka sexy alpha! The writing was good and even though it had a cliffhanger, it wasn't a bad one at all!

The narration was fantastic! I seriously love Laurel Schroeder's work! I really hope she narrates book 2!

If you enjoy Werewolves, Vamps and more, you'll like this book!
