Publisher's Summary

Ember Harris has sworn to save lives. Joseph King is an assassin. Death is their common ground, only they stand on opposing sides.

A dead man’s plea pushes Dr. Ember Harris headfirst into a swirling mire of drugs, death, and political corruption. The Cartel boss who murdered Ember’s friend will stop at nothing to get the information entrusted to her. After all, finding and killing a mere woman in order to claim the evidence should be easy. A matter of a contract, time and money. Terrified, alone, and on the run, Ember reaches out to the only person she knows she can trust.

Joseph King is an assassin. He’d just unpacked his bag from an assignment he probably shouldn’t have survived. Life as an assassin comes with an expiration date. Sooner or later, your competition or your target will get lucky. Out of spare lives, Joseph knows it is time to hang it up and walk away while he still can. Best laid plans, right? One phone call from the only woman he’d ever cared about successfully sidelines his disappearing act. Protecting Em will be his last mission. This time, he’ll risk anything, including his life, to keep her safe. For her, he’d stroll through the sin-stoked fires of hell and gut the devil himself.

clever clever clever

i was a little daunted by josephs character, especially when ember didnt portray the grit i almost certainly thought he needed.
his mild bouts of something akin to BDSM made me feel a tad uncomfortable even though the heroine seemed to like it. he just came off as a bit too hedonistic. I get that it was almost a given due to his character Kris had created....he was an assassin with savage needs, urges and thoughts so I guess his actions fit the profile. was hoping ember may have stepped up a bit ....but hey, they worked.
the mission was well thought out and not hurried which I'm glad of especially as some authors tend to wind everything up quickly.
now for Adam. have had mixed reviews not sure yet.....

🌻I cried, a lot!🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansad🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Wow, this was much more of an emotional ride, then I thought it would be. Joseph, the oldest brother, has a gift that has resulted in his life being a life of Isolation. He has been hardened, by the life he has chosen. For her safety, Joseph has to even give up the love of his life and perhaps his life. Both the Hero and the Heroine are tormented by all the things that must keep them apart. This is tough listen, if you want to keep your eyes dry. Although, it’s so worth it! This is definitely the best book, of the series, thus far. Definitely, a credit worthy listen.

She captured his heart

Ember is missing something from her life and when a friend gets killed after giving her information that could bring down a deadly drug cartel, she reaches out to the only man she has loved. Joseph King will do anything to eliminate the evil in the world especially when it threatens the only woman he has ever loved.
The narrator did a brilliant job revealing the personalities of these characters in his performance. I loved hearing the feelings behind the words when it comes to the interaction between Joseph and Ember. The Guardian series is a well written set of stories and having them in audible brings so much to the author’s work. Look forward to more!

Joseph-Dark, secretive and desperate for more!

I adore this guy. Jason feels like he’s alone, that he needs to protect everyone no matter the cost to his own personal life and desires. He is wounded, physically and emotionally but will not allow anyone close enough to see, until he has little choice in the matter. Ember is perfect for him, able to give him everything he knows he needs and a lot of what he was unaware of. The two are perfect for each other but do they get their happy ending or has he lived in the shadows for too long?! Not gonna spoil it for you because it’s a whopper!! A brilliant book, one of my favourites and I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you love family, strong men, stronger women, suspense, secrets and action you will love this entire series. Oh and there is heaps of sarcastic banter which is fantastic! Lots of family taking the mick and ribbing each other. Read in order for the full effect and I promise you will not be disappointed!

keeps getting better

Joseph is the 2nd of this series by Kris Micheals.
It's a bit edgier Joseph is a strong character. Not much humour and the sex scenes wont be to everyone's taste but Ms Michaels writes them well. Ember is believable and I like the way that she is portrayed as a strong independent smart woman who can enjoy letting her man take charge.

Simply brilliant

This narrator got Joseph's gravelly, dark undertones just as I imagined them. It was perfect
