Colder Than Sin by Toni Anderson
Publication Date: October 22nd, 2019
Top FBI negotiator Quentin Savage is hurled into his worst nightmare when a terrorist attack on a luxury hotel propels him from esteemed keynote speaker to powerless captive.
Haley Cramer is co-owner of a private security firm and prides herself on her independence, but she is shaken to the core when gunmen attack a conference she is attending. She survives, but only because Quentin Savage pretends she’s his wife.
Together Savage and Haley plot their escape from a ragtag army of brutal but efficient thugs while struggling to figure out exactly who the enemy is. Why was the conference attacked, and why was Quentin a specific target?
This is my first read by Toni Anderson and I do not regret one bit. This book is filled with action, adventure, mystory, and some pretty hot sex. Everything in this book felt so real and vivid. I could clearly picture out everything that happened, like a movie playing in my head while listening to this audiobook. With that being said, please note that this book is not suitable for all readers and there are many trigger warnings (see the end of this review). Please be wary before reading. This book felt different for me, it was very refreshing and such a page turner. I really enjoyed both Quentin and Haley. Both are such badasses and ready to take on the world but also are put through the ringer after being abducted. Yet, they stay so strong and ready to kick ass whenever the time comes. The narrator of this book is Eric G. Dove. This is the first audiobook I have listened to with him narrating and at first his voice irritated me for some reason. I am not entirely sure why, but it just did. After a while I got used to it and ended up really not minding his voice.
Overall, I really enjoyed this audiobook and would definitely pick up another book by Toni Anderson!
I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review and all thoughts are my own.
Trigger Warnings: Sexual assault, murder, kidnapping/abduction, terrorist attack, and death.

Originally from a small town in England, Toni studied Marine Biology at University of Liverpool (B.Sc.) and University of St. Andrews (Ph.D.) with the intention she’d never be far from the ocean. Well, that plan backfired and she ended up in the Canadian prairies with her biology professor husband, two kids, a rescue dog, and a laid-back leopard gecko.
