Running into your ex is hard enough without a dangerous stalker in the mix.
Charles Hunter’s team is on a mission to extract an unidentified ATF agent from an undercover job gone wrong. All they’ve got to go on is the rendezvous location — until Charles recognizes the ex he hasn’t seen in years. Their “simple rescue mission” is about to get a lot more complicated.
For Ángel Medina, adjusting to life after his cartel nightmare is hard enough without confronting memories of a failed relationship. All he wants is a fresh start. But when a violent stalker lashes out from the shadows, Ángel realizes his nightmare is far from over.
As the stalker’s obsession escalates and bodies start dropping, Charles and Ángel are thrown together in a desperate search for the culprit. Tempers flare and old passions reignite, drawing them back into the same turbulent relationship that once ended in disaster.
But the stalker isn’t letting go — and the next strike might hit straight through the heart.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
4.5 stars I love stories about trained tough guys (cops, military, etc.) working together and going to bed together. Something about all that intelligence, strength and alphaness just really ‘does it’ for me. Ángel’s confidence is so attractive. I admire how he owns each part of himself. Charles has a beautiful heart. He’s always concerned for others. Their relationship isn’t perfect. It’s realistic. Can’t Hide from Me’s action level is high throughout, and some parts get pretty suspenseful. There are also off-the-chart-hot sex scenes. I figured out the direction things were headed before the end, but I still loved the entire ride. I highly recommend it to those who like thrillers, mysteries and M/M romance.
3.5 stars--I love suspense mixed in with my romance, so Miss Kingsbridge has been on my list for a few months. Can’t Hide from Me is my first book by her, and I’ll definitely be reading more of her works. That said, while there were some things I loved, there were others that didn’t quite work for me in this book. Overall, I liked the writing style, found the physical chemistry between Angel and Charles crazy hot, enjoyed the bulk of the suspense, and really liked the action scenes. Can’t Hide from Me started really quickly, with the first scene being an intense extraction for undercover ATF agent Angel. While the action was well-written, the barrage of character names and aliases coming at me quickly in audiobook form was a lot to make sense of. I think this less than ideal start was one of the reasons it took me a while to really commit to the story. However, I thought the second chance romance plot between agent Angel and one of the agents on his extraction team was promising. Angel and Charles were a couple years ago, but with Charles still in the closet and a dramatic break-up, the bad blood and tension between these two was intense from the get go. Unfortunately, this was where things got a bit dicey for me. There was an obvious physical pull between them and, when they hooked up fairly quickly in the book, the simmering anger led to an explosive sex scene akin to an enemies-to-lovers romance. While there was no denying the author can write extremely sexy scenes, I failed to see any real promise for them to be a functional couple until the tail end of the book. I also grew really frustrated with their refusal to discuss their past and Angel’s constant prowling for bed companions. So, while I didn’t dislike Angel or Charles, I struggled to root for them to make it together. The suspense aspects were up and down for me as well. I ascertained the correct identity of the stalker right away, but there were enough twists and well-done action scenes to keep things interesting. However, some of the law enforcement operations of the plot and the agents’ actions were a little unbelievable- sometimes unprofessional, sometimes just not safe or all that smart, and it ended up taking me out of the story a bit. All in all, Can’t Hide from Me was a good listen that ensured I’ll be checking out more of Miss Kingsbridge’s romantic suspense. I just wish I got more romance and emotional connection in this book rather than an intense physical chemistry that, while hot, had me repeatedly questioning the couple. *Reviewed audiobook for Alpha Book Club*
