Publisher's Summary

When Sloan Reynolds beats criminal charges, Melissa Jones stops believing her wealthy, connected ex-husband will ever pay for what he did to her. Derek Alexander can't accept that - a tiny silver scar won't let him forget… until the body of a former call girl turns up dead. She's the breakthrough Derek's been waiting for - the link to Sloan's sordid past that he needs. Derek is ready to do whatever it takes to protect his family when his partner Patrick Knight devises a plan that changes everything. It's a plan that involves coloring outside the lines and taking a walk on the dark side. It goes against everything on which Alexander-Knight, LLC, is based. And it's a plan that Derek is more than ready to follow.

OH HOW I LOVE DEREK & MELISSA!!

There is something so sweet and HOT about a very strong, disciplined man like Derek who falls in love…like madly-helplessly-effortlessly in love with a great woman like Melissa. And the listening experience from this audiobook was effortless. This is a continuation in the romance between Derek and Melissa, as well as their best friends, Patrick and Elaine. Consider yourself getting a 2 for 1 deal with the parallel romances.

Let me say that I LOVE Derek and Melissa together. They make a beautiful couple. Throughout Melissa's pregnancy, Derek is so tender and gentle with her and you could feel the weight he carried on his shoulders to make sure she was kept safe from her dangerous, vindictive ex-husband. Derek and Melissa both have quite a few things they are still working through in their relationship as they move forward to a more permanent place for their growing family, and it was endearing. The love scenes were lovely--they were emotional, intense and erotic. This book ends with some really somber issues that Derek has to make sense of, and many other unfinished situations for the other couple that will make the next books something to look forward to.

I liked how the surrounding characters introduced from the previous books were brought forward and expounded upon, like previous escort Toni, Kenny (baby momma), and Sloan (Melissa's crazy ex-husband).

I can't wait to continue to follow the romances of both of these sweet, yet insatiable couples…..

Narrators: Lucy Rivers and Christian Fox were wonderful. WIth such great vocal talent, this listen was quite a treat!

loved it

I chose this story because of the narrators. I'm glad I decided to give it a chance. I actually ending up loving this story. I've listened to this dual narrators and they have great chemistry. Even though I have no complaint with male narrator because he did such a good job, female narrator was even better. Her voice was so smooth and effortless, sometimes, I find myself in tears from listening to her telling the story. All in all, they portrayed the characters perfectly and didn't disappoint me. The romance between the main characters were super HOT. I highly recommend!
