Publisher's Summary

His name means hunter.

Once the best assassin in black ops, Cazador is now the best at saving lives. His path has changed from seeking bloody vengeance to running a health clinic in Rescue, Alaska.

He will never again risk loving someone he can’t protect.

His mother and sister were murdered in front of him, his fiancée slaughtered in a war zone. Despite his popularity with women, he’s determined to remain unattached. His heart can bear no more loss.

Unfortunately, the universe isn’t listening.

First, his brother hires JJ, a fiery-haired, tough cop who lives on the edge of danger and has the biggest heart of anyone he knows. And then, his disreputable past returns in the shape of an adorable, foul-mouthed nine-year-old daughter. Now he has two loved ones to protect. An impossible task, because...

Life is dangerous. Especially in Alaska.

So - so listen

I like Cherise Sinclair’s books generally but this one was underwhelming. Took me a really long time to plug through it. Not sure I would recommend

I enjoyed the book more than the audio

Normally, if I enjoy a book, I'll enjoy the audio at least as much, especially when it's duet narration, but in this case, it just didn't work for me. A lot of the audio was stilted, and made me notice the repetitiveness of the heroine's thoughts more than I did when reading it. It seemed like the male narrator was trying just a little too hard to make the hero's "slight" Mexican accent noticeable, without it being exaggerated, (which, granted, is a tough thing to do), and as a result it was TOO exaggerated, if that makes sense?

Overall, still worth a credit, but not my favorite.

Can and JJ are awesome!

JJ is a female police officer who has had her reputation smeared by an ex. The rumors and lack of back up have put her life in jeopardy. Her training officer, who is firmly in her corner recommends she move to Rescue, Alaska to work with Gabe. When she interviews with him, she feels like it is where she needs to be.

Caz is Gabes brother, kind is a player with women, but always lets them know he’s not up for more. When he meets JJ while she’s in town for the interview, he is interested. When she turns him down, he realizes she is different.

This story is excellent. The Sons of the Survivalist series is one of my favorites and I’ve read them a couple of times... this time I listened. Worth the listen with two good narrators at work!!

Needs better research, Geography wrong

Starts 100mi. south of Anchorage near Kenai lake then jumps 30mi. North of it to lynx lake. Otherwise an excellent read.

So good!

Such alphas! Romance plus intrigue, suspense and a little mystery. Love this series! Can't wait for the last two to be available on audible.

Cute

This was so cute. It made me laugh and worried. It had a good balance of ups and downs. I love the brothers and how they interact with each other. Another good one Mrs. Sinclair

Great book, inadequately read

The book as always is fantastic. The reading took away from the book greatly. The male lead sounded like he should be reading book down south as all the characters had the wrong accent and intonation. Totally painful to listen to.

I loved this story..

I thoroughly enjoyed the story of JJ and Caz. It was slow and building, a bit suspenseful, and sexy as all get out.

After suffering from the latest round of sexist behavior and lack of back up from her fellow officers, JJ has the opportunity to move to Alaska where she an start new and hopefully find a place she belongs that values her and makes her part of the community. Maybe Rescue, Alaska is the answer.
Caz loves his brothers and that’s all he needs in life. His brothers, living up to Macko’s mission, and loving the ladies. Taking care of women and children is not in the cards for his life. How interesting is it when he finds both will need him as much as he needs them.

So far, Caz will be my favorite brother. Sure his accent is sexy as hell, but he is the most stable and balanced person I’ve ever known. He likes to talk things out, express his needs and demands, and is extremely protective of those he loves. Watching him and JJ dance around their attraction only to eventually give in was beautiful to see. It was the same way with Caz and Regan. That little girl could melt the hearts of anyone she encounters....and she does. Seeing them all come together with his brothers and Audrey made for a very engaging story where you couldn’t help but wish the best for all involved.

The narration really brought the story to life. With the exception of Hawk and Bull’s voice, the voices match the character and you can truly get lost in the story being told.

Terrific story

Loved hearing more about life in small town rural Alaska. Really enjoyed Jayden’s story, it’s written from a very true perspective about dealing with the brotherhood. Enjoyed the addition of Regan and the storyline bringing in the dangers of earthquakes. This series has such interesting characters, can’t wait to read Bull & Hawk’s stories. Great narration by Mr. Qualen & Ms. St. Claire.

It Had SonMuch Potential

The first story was great but the second book was just flat. There was a lot of opportunities that were missed. The story seemed to skip some places. Like when JJ (how typically tomboy) was going to crochet the scarves. Then she was going to move out because of her reputation then everything is fine again. When did she and Kaz make up?

It was a 3 at best and only because I hope we get better books in 3 forward.
