Tristan as a character is one hot little number who loves them and leaves them. With his job he really cannot do relationships. Besides there isn’t a women who can keep his attention for long, that is until Rachel who turns his world upside down walks in his life. He really cannot get involved with this woman for a number of reasons at least that is what he tells his self. What he finds out is he is in way over his head as he makes sure her ex stays an ex which keeps his hands full, let’s not even talk about what she does to him. I really liked him because no matter what the job gets done. He will protect with his dying breath, he thinks he really isn’t good enough for Rachel beside his job just would not work with a relationship. He tries his best to talk his self out of it, the pull is to strong he gives in to the demand of his body. Oh what a night like no other it really is going to be hard to walk away from this woman. That is if her brother doesn’t kill him first…..
Rachel is doing what she needs to do to help pay off her father’s bills. If she marries her soon to be husband he will pay them all off. She isn’t really in love but is willing to do anything to help her family. With showing up at the wedding with no groom in site has her rethinking this. Once the groom shows up pasted out well this is just to much and is not going to happen. Then comes along her brother and his friend he tells her to hold on and not let go. OMG where are they and how did they get there. With her whole world turned upside down not knowing where to turn and what to do has her spinning. It just so happens that Tristan has a few things to say as well as show her. Will one night of hot passion lead to more or when she finds out more than she wants to know will she walk away?
I thought Fred Filbrich brought a lot to this audio his voice was clear and smooth, if there was any editing done I could not tell. The audio was clear with no noise of any kind. I thought his voices were great I had no trouble telling who was talking along with being able to tell if it was male or female. His tones were even whether excited or mad he hit them right on the mark. I have not listened to any audios by him and was very pleased with the outcome.
The author throws in a lot of twist that you do not see coming. I just am not sure why the mother was pushing her to marry the person she was. I got a little confused there but it might have been I wasn’t listening as well as I should have. I was setting in a dentist chair having a tooth pulled I am going with I most likely missed something that the author had written. I will stand by my thoughts of I didn’t care to much for her mother. I did like most of the characters each bring so much to the story even those you won’t like adds so much to the listen. I would have liked to have seen more action but as again I think this was more of a build up for the series. I really thought this was a wonderful thought out plot with bring Enhancements of Teleportation and Invisibility into a story that is believable. The author throws in some hot romance for your pleasure which will steam up your e reader. The characters are believable and ones you can relate to with normal issues for the most part. This is a book I want to listen to again when I can really listen to it and give it my full attention. There is a lot of drama with many surprises that will keep you on your toes. A few things that are sure to blow your mind with mother dear reveals a few secretes of many years ago. This was well worth the listen and it will be one I will be going back to revisit soon. This is one author to keep your eyes on with well over 100 five and four star reviews I would say she is one to check out and give a read.
The brothers best friend romance’s are some of my favorite ones to read. I loved how strong willed and fiesty Rachel was. But she was also very self-sacrificing for her family and very inquisitive. An all around three dimentional character. The best kind!
And Tristan was the tall loner that never had as much to lose as Rachel with regards to a friendships and love. Her brother being the closest thing to family in his lonely life. And he has one of the coolest powers ever! What I felt was different about this book is usually the romance is the subplot but in this one the sci-fi seemed to be the subplot and it read differently because of it. In a real good way. It was very underplayed and his powers were very much made an extension of his other qualities, such as his SEAL training.
They were total opposites and boy did they attract! Their chemistry was very steamy and they had a hard time attempting to resist, which I thought was awesome. The back and forth banter between them was like foreplay. Great romance, opening the door for the supporting character’s books of their own. I love these kinds of series.
Tristan works for the D.I.R.E. Agency, a poorly defined collection of super-commandos who supposedly fight international crime (but really seem to be a well-funded excuse for the boss to carry on a grudge match with his old Army-buddy-turned-super-criminal). Old romantic rivalries are involved – it’s a melodramatic and fluffy mess. Anyway, as an agent, Tristan has been outfitted with an implant that allows him to go invisible and teleport. This is pretty fancy technology and there is no real explanation as to why the D.I.R.E. Agency is the only group with access to it. Rachel, the woman he uses his invisibility to spy on, is the sister of one of his teammates. She is preparing to marry a man that she doesn’t love so that she can pay off her deceased father’s medical bills. Given that Tristan makes enough to own a private island, there is no explanation as to why Rachel’s brother – Tristan’s co-worker – makes so little that his sister must basically prostitute herself in order to pay bills. I guess D.I.R.E. has radically different pay scales for different operatives? Whatever the ultimate explanation, Tristan immediately falls for Rachel.
There is a lot of action in this book. This is good because it helps distract the reader from how incoherent the plot really is. Everyone knows everybody else and it’s very “high drama” in an 80s evening soap opera sense. I kept picturing a camera swiveling to a character’s face for a close-up after another dramatic revelation about the past was made. Too much of the plot hinges on coincidence. It can be hard to get the first book of a series off the ground, so maybe subsequent installments will be less melodramatic, but – given the set-up we already have for the second book – I doubt it.
