He’s working undercover for the good guys. That doesn’t mean he’s one of them.
HE’S A KILLER.
Thorne McKelvey knows exactly how Nadia sees him—as a brute and a killer just kinky enough to play her sexy games. And that’s how it has to stay. Leaving her was the hardest thing he ever did, but his undercover mission could blow up at any second. No way will he drag Nadia down with him.
SHE CAN’T RISK HER HEART.
Maybe it was foolish to fall in love with her late father’s deadliest henchman, but Nadia Volkov’s not sorry; without Thorne she wouldn’t have their beautiful little boy. There’s nothing she won’t do to protect Benny, which means she must hide his identity—especially from his father.
Now Thorne has burst back into her home, searching for clues to a gangland mystery…and stirring a hunger Nadia hasn’t felt in two years. But Benny’s identity isn’t the only secret she’s keeping, and things are turning deadly. Can Thorne and Nadia trust each other long enough to stay alive and have a chance at happiness?

First Thought when Finished: Into the Shadows by Carolyn Crane was another excellent addition to The Associates series. I have a wishlist now of peeps I would like to get a story.
Quick Thoughts: You know that moment when you finish a book and you have to wait? That is how good this series is! I love it in audio so I am having to wait a little longer than the print crowd. Thorne and Nadia just made my heart a flutter. Their past, their present, their secrets–all combined made for one of those stories that you cried, laughed, and wanted to shake someone (both characters brought that out in me). Secret baby storylines are usually a troupe I avoid but somehow Carolyn made it work! KUDOS!
Narrated By Romy Nordlinger / Length: 10 hrs and 41 mins
Romy is quickly becoming a “narrator I can count on”. She has done an excellent job with this series. Her pacing, voicing variations, and emotion hits just the right note. Very well done!
Final Thoughts: WAITING SUCKS!
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
