But when some of her female students are viciously murdered, Lila's shaken to the core and unsure of whom she can trust in New Orleans. When the police detective assigned to the murder case comes to investigate, she's even more surprised to find herself staring into the eyes of the man who made her toes curl last year.
In an attempt to move on from the tragic loss of his wife, Asher Smith moved his daughter and himself to a new city, ready for a fresh start. A damn fine police lieutenant but new to the New Orleans force, Asher has a lot to prove to his colleagues and himself. With a murderer terrorizing the Tulane University campus, Asher finds himself toe to toe with the one woman who haunts his dreams. His hands, his lips, his body know her as intimately as he's ever known anyone. As he learns her mind and heart as well, Asher wants nothing more than to keep her safe, in his bed, and in his and his daughter's lives for the long haul. But when Lila becomes the target, can Asher save her in time, or will he lose another woman he loves?

Wish It Lasted Longer
Short novella was a good addition to the Boudreaux series. I wish it were longer because there was so much to explore with these characters. Narration was well done. Another good audiobook in the series.

YES IT'S SHORT... BUT KP PACKED SO MUCH INTO IT
College Professor Lila accidentally fell into the handsome and charming Asher's lap while on a plane to New Orleans - instant chemistry, instant attraction but apologies and goodbyes were said. Fate then had them drinking in the same Bar and they eagerly and quickly picked up where they'd left off..... and took it to the next level by sharing one hot night together. But no surnames or numbers were exchanged.... which they both later sadly regretted.
Then, six months later Asher came walking back into her life but on a professional basis because he was a Police Lieutenant following up on the grizzly murders of three of her female Students. Asher knew the Killer had left notes suggesting that he was about to target Lila and his protective instincts took over.... well that an the sexual chemistry that was so obviously bubbling between them. Asher took Lila under his wing, introduced her to his sweet 10 yr old daughter, shared histories, had more sex and they quickly became a little family unit. But then the Killer struck again and it was even more gruesome than before and this time he left a chilling note that he was coming for Lila next.
This was a very sweet, touching and friendly romance, there was drama and suspense as to who the sick Killer was and if he would be able to get to Lila, there was passion and sex and a handful of secondary characters. Dual POV's, good narration and, although part of a series, it's easily a standalone.
Worth a credit? No but only because it's just 2.47 hrs long and cost a mere $3.95. I usually don't like short listens because you don't get the depth and detail to a story or they feel rushed. But, as it's one of Kristen Proby's books, I knew I was going to enjoy it whatever the length - and I wasn't wrong because she delivered on so many levels.... the characters, the storyline and the drama.
