Publisher's Summary

Benjamin Stone has an unrealistic determination to rid the streets of New York from any and all drug dealing scum. That determination quickly moves him and his partner, Rob Withers, up the ranks to Senior Narcotics Agents within their precinct. A new case assisting the FBI has Ben facing the ghosts of his past. Those same ghosts are the very reason he moved to New York to become a cop.
Ella Parker is bright, beautiful, kind, and severely damaged as a result of one tragic night in her past. Having lived an idealistic life that horrific night sent her pretty castle of cards crumbling down. Forced to start over, she leans on her best friend, Andrea Hensen, to help her move on. With Andrea's help, Ella quickly settles into her new life in New York City. It's a safe and comfortable existence, albeit very boring.
Their paths may have never crossed, if it hadn't been for their meddling best friends. Rob and Andrea believe that Ben and Ella are soul mates that were meant to be together, a perfect match. There's one slight problem. Ben and Ella want no part of this matchmaking scheme. Funny thing about fate, it's inevitable.
Or is it?
Can a truth cause the possibility of a happily ever after to crash and burn? Ben and Ella learn that sometimes truth isn't the best answer. Sometimes ignorance is most definitely bliss.

Hot Romance with a Mystery thrown in ....

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that it was a romance with a solid mystery thrown in also. Some books can be good in one category ~ romance OR mystery but A.M. Madden has shown that they are equally good at both. I am looking forward to more of their work.

Which character – as performed by Lynn Barrington – was your favorite?

As usual, Ms. Barrington hits this one out of the park. Each of the main characters: Ella, Ben, Andrea and Rob are well voiced. She makes each character stand out and shine at the right moments. Ms. Barrington keeps you in the story and makes you want to come back for more. Its always sad when a book that she narrates ends. You just want more!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Ella was in the hospital and Ben was by her side. The dedication he shows is what you want to see from a partner/lover/spouse.

Any additional comments?

I received this book from the author, narrator and/or rights holder in exchange for an honest review.

Lovers, Secrets, & the Mob

Really enjoyed this audiobook. Well developed characters (Andrea my favorite), very interesting story, and exceptional narration. Loved the nicknames (Batman & Robin, Ken & Barbie, and Superman). Told in alternating chapters by Ella and Ben~two people who have been scarred by violent crimes in their families~brought together by their best friends, Andrea and Rob. A real age turner to the very end. Strong language and graphic sexual situations.

Audiobook provided for an honest review....
