If there was ever a time when Jameson Grant wished he was a different sort of man, it was now. The sort of man who had it in him to accept the promise of tomorrow from a sweet woman. But he wasn’t the kind of man who liked sweet. The former SEAL didn’t like much of anything or anyone.
His past had taught him that people where liars and cheats, and his time as a Special Forces operator taught him people also killed and manipulated. So, Jameson did what he did best and walked away from the sexy blonde, with legs that were every man’s fantasy. But when she comes back in desperate need of help, he cannot turn his back on the beautiful Kennedy Lane a second time.
Kennedy Lane was in trouble, and she only knew one man who could help. But when she went in search of her childhood friend, the owner of Gemini Group, she found his sexy teammate Jameson, instead. The man was positively broody, brash, and most certainly rough around the edges, and possibly the most distrusting person she’d ever met. He was also hot, and bossy, and when he forgot to be a jerk, he was sweet.
The problem was, he wasn’t interested in her - not personally. Jameson had one mission - keep Kennedy safe - a directive he’d made crystal clear. As the pressure to sell her land increases, the team quickly realizes just how far the greedy land developer will go in his quest to steal everything Kennedy loves.
Nothing is off-limits, and no one is safe. Lines blur when Kennedy’s life is on the line and Jameson can no longer deny he’s fallen for the woman he never dared to dream existed. Now time’s running out - literally - and it’s up to Jameson to save the woman he loves.
This is the second book in the Gemini Group series, a Romantic Suspense. Jameson and Kennedy's story is entertaining and fast-paced. Kennedy is beautiful, strong, and caring. Jameson, a former SEAL, is handsome, protective, and supportive. They are perfect together. The storyline has mystery, suspense, action, and twists and turns. I loved to see the characters from the first book. This is another great story in the series. Joe Arden and Erin Mallon did an amazing job with the narration. They are perfect as Jameson and Kennedy. If you like Romantic Suspense, this one is for you! Looking forward to listening to Weston's Treasure, the next book in the series.
Reminding me why I love Romantic Suspense
This is the second book of the Gemini Group series but it can easily be read on it's own. What you need to know about the past is given to you, but it's always a richer experience to read in order. This series is really reminding me why Romantic Suspense was my go-to trope when I was younger.
Jameson is grumpy and emotionally secluded. He's got his trusted brothers, but even they are held at a distance. Then he meets Kennedy. She's all sunshine and trust, even when she shouldn't be. He doesn't want to taint her light with his darkness, but he can't stay away when she needs help.
Kennedy isn't good at asking for help. She's fiercely independent and self reliant. She tries to ask for a little help from her childhood friend Nixon (book 1 hero and Jameson's teammate/business partner). But it turns out her situation is more complicated and dangerous than she originally thought and even when she insists she can handle it, the guys (especially Jameson) will have none of it!
The audiobook is performed by the dynamic duo of Joe Arden & Erin Mallon. Erin is wonderful as Kennedy, she's light and happy but also strong and firm since Kennedy is fully capable of handing a lot on her own. She brings a great vulnerability when she realizes how out of her depth she is. Joe is a great grumpy alpha protector but what really gets me is the emotional extremes he's able to bring. There is a wonderful scene where he's narrating dialogue from Kennedy that is so emotional, I was in tears. Anytime a narrator can pull me out of whatever situation I'm in and make me feel the story, it's stellar.
I requested and was provided with a copy of the audiobook. This is my honest review.
Fast-paced and thrilling
Jameson’s Salvation brought us back to the ex-military Gemini Group universe. Jameson and Kennedy’s romantic suspense story was packed with mystery, danger and love. I loved the dynamics between the couple in which they brought out the best in each other. The comradeship between the group was heartfelt. Joe Arden and Erin Mallon did a great job in bringing the characters to life which ensured a great listening experience.
