They're back - the boys you go out looking for precisely because your mother warned you not to - the bad boys every good girl needs at least once, if not twice! Raphael "Rafe" Santiago may have left the streets years ago, but the street has never left him. A rough childhood in the Bronx taught him never to let his guard down, to keep everything in order, and always to trust that little voice in his gut that tells him when someone's got something to hide.
Horse trainer Elena Caulfield, is definitely hiding something, and Rafe intends to find out what it is and take care of it - his way. But his way wasn't supposed to include feeling an intense attraction to the tomboyish Elena. With her mud-caked boots, quiet strength, and gentle manner, she's nothing like the flashy, seductive, overtly feminine women Rafe usually beds. The closer he gets to her, the harder it is to control that fiery passion he's worked hard to keep cooled, the kind that can catch a man off guard and leave him open to danger - because whatever secret Elena's protecting, it's big - and worth killing for. Because when you're from the Bronx, you take care of what you love - or die trying!

No hiding this great story!
- Terri C.
Good story but not so good narration.
For the most part. The narration made this slightly boring.
Added a female narrator as well. York is pretty much a one-note performer.
While I generally like Sebastian York's voice in other audiobooks, there was very little inflection or tonal changes. Hero is of Hispanic heritage yet there is no accent whatsoever even when he says the one Spanish word ever uttered in the entire book, "mijita" (little girl), never mind the exceedingly boring representation of the heroine.
Just an 'ok' read overall. Would not re-listen to.
