Publisher's Summary

When paramedic Nick Swain responds to a shooting in a seedy neighborhood, his entire world is thrown off its axis. His life is threatened...twice. Allegations of racism and medical neglect threaten his career and his ability to sleep at night. Not that he'll be sleeping any time soon after the incident throws him into the path - and arms - of Detective Andrew Carmichael.

One hot night after another with Andrew may help Nick relieve some work-related stress, but sex won't solve every problem in his life. With the media hounding him and the city watching his every move, he starts to wonder if the world is out to get him.

The world may not be out to get him, but someone is.

And that someone wants Nick dead.

Great Story

Strong, well-developed characters, a good plot, and good grammar and punctuation combine to make stimulating read that will bring the reader back for more. I now own three series from L. A. Witt. And so far, I haven't found another author who tell a story as good as she does.

Overall grest!

This was such an exciting book when they weren't having unnecessary dialogue. It probably could've been shorter but overall really great. You get to a small glimpse of the life of a paramedic and the hard decisions they have to make. It's filled with those decisions that make you say you are damned if you do and damned if you don't. It's a must buy though. Just be patient for some parts.

Oh My God!

I don't know how L.A. Witt knew about the boys in my head .... the cop and the paramedic; but she certainly brought them deliciously to life.

Nick and Andrew met at a crime scene. Nick a paramedic, and Andrew a cop meet up when Nick responds to a call with multiple casualties. Nick is helping save Andrew's partner.

The results of the call bring the two together. Nick is put into danger from the call, and what starts out as a one night stand develops into something deeper.

The end had me in tears. And full of suspense. L.A. Witt is masterful in her writing. I didn't want to stop listening, or for the story to end.

Charlie David gives a wonderful narration that brings Nick and Andrew to life with a lot of emotion. His voice is calming, yet commanding, powerful and emotional.

Narrator was just too TERRIBLE!

After 2-hrs, I couldn't listen anymore. I LOVE L.A. Witt's writing but this narrator got on every last nerve and I finally gave up. Returning this series w/o finishing even the 1st book! So disappointed.

Great beginning and ending but the middle was slow

The first few chapters were so exciting and I loved them - the last few chapters were also really exciting and I loved them. However, the middle part kind of bored me. Then there was the fact that Nick already had so many issues dealing with trauma that I have a VERY hard time believing he will get past his guilt and trauma for the way things went down at the end of the book. He isn't willing to get help and I just feel like that will greatly impact his relationship.

Very sexy thriller

A little bit on the long side, but this sexy tale of a paramedic in danger after witnessing a shooting, and the detective determined to protect him, and solve a homicide, is a nice thrill ride.

The characters are well fleshed out, and there's just enough action, drama, humor, and romance to keep the story interesting, without veering off course into angst-ridden foolishness. The Cover Me series only ran for three books before Witt brought it to an end, but this one can be read as a standalone.

It's betokened by a strong opening, and tear-worthy ending, with a thrilling climax in between, and Charlie David's narration was equally solid.

as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

I wanted to like this

But I like fluffy and this left me really sad. It's a shame because I really got into the characters and just feel a bit bummed out about the whole deal.

Extremely suspenseful and encouraging

Amazing and courageous men who work on the teams to make sacrifices for us. And out of it all love sometimes finds its way through the difficult times. Great reads!!!
