Publisher's Summary

Phenomenal #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents a spine-tingling novel about a female cop who walks fearlessly into danger - but must draw on her courage to let love into her life.

Police Lieutenant Phoebe MacNamara found her calling at an early age when a violently unstable man broke into her family’s home, trapping and terrorizing them for hours. Now she’s Savannah’s top hostage negotiator, who puts her life on the line every day to defuse powder-keg situations. 

After watching her talk one of his employees off a roof ledge, Duncan Swift is committed to keeping this intriguing, take-charge woman in his life. Phoebe’s used to working solo, but she’s finding that no amount of negotiation can keep Duncan at arm’s length. Especially when a man throws a hood over Phoebe’s head and brutally assaults her - in her own precinct house - and threatening messages begin appearing on her doorstep. Duncan backs her up every step of the way, as she establishes contact with the faceless tormentor who is determined to make her a hostage to fear - before she becomes the final showdown.

Narrator was annoying and story was corny AF. I listened to all of it so wasn’t horrific but def wouldn’t recommend anyone go out of their way for it

Meh +

It was a pretty good story, but there was so so much repetition of points. I actually skipped about 3/4 of the the listen, but had to listen to the end chapter to find out what was going on, not one of my favourite Nora Roberts.

Great story and great performance

I really enjoyed not only the story but the performer who was very good at changing voices and feeling like we were right there.

It's okay.

I probably was not the target audience for this.

The good guys were too flawless and the villains too stupid for me to enjoy the conflict or the romance. The narration was great though.
