A former Navy SEAL, Cole Makani Hunter has returned home from a disastrous black ops mission without his best friend, his hearing, or the use of his right arm. So when his ex–commanding officer assigns him to an undercover mission at a rehab center for vets to discover who leaked sensitive military information to an enemy, he’d rather be anywhere but there. Almost immediately, Cole finds himself at odds with Annie Murray—a peace-loving ecotherapist whose dream is to open an animal sanctuary out of her home. While the two seemingly have nothing in common, their spirited arguments soon fuel a passion for each other.
But just as things begin to heat up between therapist and patient, dangerous complications arise. So does the past—and a shocking revelation that puts Cole and everything he now holds dear in the path of a murderous traitor.
I enjoyed this one, but did feel that the suspect was INCREDIBLY obvious. Everything points to him, if you’re paying attention. And I was. But knowing who it was didn’t ruin the story for me – it just made it a lot less about suspense/mystery and a lot more about the romance.
And I did enjoy the romance. I liked the characters and their relationship (although it did bug me that it was highly unprofessional and she kept acknowledging that and still…). The main character loves animals and that was great, since I do too. Everyone seems to like her – I mean she has 3 stalkers within this book. Extreme? A bit.
The audio was good… but the fact that she referred to the hero by his full name OVER AND OVER became a bit more obvious than it would have been if I was reading. That wasn’t the narrator’s fault though and I would listen to Sarah Naughton again.
Overall, I enjoyed it and would read more. Oh and Eco-therapy sounds seriously cool and I want to look into it for curiosity’s sake!
Predictable, but enjoyable! Berls gives Silent Threat 3.5/5 stars Click To Tweet
