I mean, what's not to love about macho men, romance, mystery and comrades. I also was very pleased that the narrator did a great job! This is the first time I heard Brock perform and I'll be adding him to my favs list!

Any additional comments?
I must admit, I might have enjoyed the narration for this more had I not listened to it back to back with Shock & Awe.
I'll also admit I'm still confused as to who's who and doing what, which, being this is the second book in this new series, I should not be having these difficulties at this point. This is not a "friendly to new readers" series.
There's mention of a transplant Nick had? He donated half his liver to his dad? What? When?
While under the influence of Dilaudid and ketamine after the surgery Nick apparently asked Kelly to marry him, but Kelly never answered and it's a thread that's dropped after that bombshell.
Why was Nick on Dilaudid and ketamine for the surgery? I mean I think it may have something to do with Nick having some weird super tolerance for alcohol and pain meds...but I'm just guessing. Am I right? What?
Kelly works at a camp? As what? A counselor? What?
Also, when is all this going on? How long is this between the first book and this one? What's my frame of reference for time?
It all makes me want to scream at Abigail Roux, "I'm sorry I haven't read your precious Cut & Run series but can you give me some details, please? I'm new here!! FFS! Can you give me a break and let me in on the details?"
This is literally like coming into a series starting at book 8 or 9 and trying to figure out what the f*ck is going on with barely any reference to past exploits or situations.
I mean, would you please not market this as a standalone new series if it's not one?
Then there's the narration. Which is okay, if lacking in certain accents (I was really looking forward to hearing JD's accent and felt a little let down), but it's totally off to me because the character voice Brock Thompson uses for Nick is yet again different this go around. That brings the total to three different voices for the same character over two books. WTF?
Once all that bitching is out of the way there's the story, which was okay, but was a little too heavy on the cop shop, history and treasure hunting at times, though that's mainly because I would have liked more on the relationship/romance end.
I liked seeing Julian Cross from Warrior's Cross again (he's so cool), I really liked the glimpses into Nick's background, I loved seeing Nick and Kelly together (even if it was too little in between everything else), and I super loved the sexy times.
All of which will bring me back for book three of the series. Maybe then I'll finally be able to catch up.
