This is the first book in PJ Fiala’s Big 3 Security series.
I love that Ford & Megan are in their 40s and the balance of suspense and romance was nice, but definitely leaned heavier on the romance. The blurb made me think there’d be more action than the story delivered. This is best when you’re in the mood for instalove.
There's a forced proximity which means the Ford & Megan have a lot of time to get to know each other. Even though the story only lasted a few days - it was obvious they were a great fit beyond just sex & physical attraction. The ending was kind of meandering, but sweet.
I enjoyed Troy Duran and Rose Dioro’s performances. They were a great fit for the characters and easy to listen to.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, PJ Fiala chose the perfect cast to bring her characters and story to life. Rose Dioro and Troy Duran are superbly talented narrators and versatile voice artists. They had a complete understanding of the characters they portrayed, gave each a voice that fit their character’s persona to a tee, sounding believable and just as I pictured the characters to sound. Troy Duran played Ford’s role with perfection, grasping his alpha badassery completely. Rose Dora did the same for Megan, grasping her sweetness and innocence and then her strength. Both were great at performing the roles of the secondary characters as well. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to.
