Summary

He lives to enforce the law. But he’ll break every rule to protect her. 

Nick Clark 

I clipped a shiny, new FBI badge to my belt, thinking I could save the world. Four years later, the shield’s got some dents, along with my idealism. And there’s one cold case that’s come back to haunt me. 

A killer has resurfaced, and all my instincts tell me he’s after the victim that got away. I’ll break every rule in the book to protect beautiful, scarred Meadow. Because I’ve done the most dangerous, most distracting thing an agent can do. I’ve fallen for her. 

Meadow Holiday 

I don’t believe in fairy tales. Not after an attack left me a half a woman. But when Nick swears to protect me from my worst nightmare, his charm cracks my resolve to guard myself. One kiss shatters it. 

But, like the evil villain in the tale, the killer won’t stop until he finishes what he started. And our happy ending balances on the point of a knife.

Nick & Meadow

Sexy meet Criminal Minds, my favourite tv show ever.

This is only my second book by Riley Edwards and I’m in love with her writing, her characters and her stories. Saving Meadow was such an amazing book I struggled to stop listening and do my actual job. What a page turner!
Troy Duran narrates Nick’s character and Devon Grace voices Meadow. Devon is a new to me narrator and I found her reassuring voice a great match for Meadow’s character. Troy’s calming voice was perfect for Nick, the perfect book boyfriend

A Riveting & Thrilling Romantic Suspense!

Riley Edwards continues to wow me with another amazing romantic suspense and the start of a new series featuring the next generation, a nephew of characters in the 707 Freedom series and what a start it is! The story grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it straight to the end. It is definitely a book that once you pick up, you do not want to put it down because you need to know what happens next. The characters are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with, they are easy to care about too. Nick Clark always wanted to serve, but unlike his uncles, he went a different route and instead of joining the army, he joined the FBI. He was a star pupil and was chosen for the Behavioral Analyst Unit, a place he only dreamed of working for one day. The story fast forwards four years when a serial killer who went dormant kills again and these murders are close to home for the team. Meadow Holiday was a victim of that serial, the only survivor because someone scared off the attacker who fled. The attack left Meadow with scars and PTSD and she does not recall much of the attack, so it surprises her when special agents from the FBI come asking her questions about the assault. Even more surprising was that one of the agent was the gorgeous guy she had her eyes in the coffee shop they visit. Nick remembers Meadow from the coffee shop he visits and he had wondered what happened to her since he had not seen her for a while and then when she showed up again she was not herself. Both felt an attraction to each other from a distance, but when they meet in person, they could feel the chemistry between them was real. Meadow has scars and insecurities about them, but Nick does not see the scars, he only sees her beauty and he needs to prove that to her. This is a well written and cleverly plotted story with plenty of drama, both relationship and crime drama, some angst, mystery, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and a slow burn romance. Riley Edwards, thank you for another amazing story and the wild emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the amazing narration, Riley Edwards cast the perfect narrators to bring her story and characters to life. Devon Grace and Troy Duran are wonderfully talented narrators and versatile voice artists. They had a complete understanding of the characters they portrayed, gave each a voice that suited their character’s persona to a tee, sounding believable in every role they played. Troy Duran nailed it as the cool, calm agent Nick was, with a side of bad@ss. Devon Grace grasped every side of Meadow’s personality, from her torment and insecurities to her strength. Both were fantastic playing the roles of the secondary characters as well. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the characters’ emotions and projected them into their performance and had you feeling every single one. These entertaining storytellers are a pleasure to listen to and their narration enhances an already amazing story to another level. Thank you for another exceptional listen.

Suspense with love

I loved this one. It was so lovely to watch Meadow develop and blossom nurtured by Nick's love and support.

The suspense was pretty good too and it took me quite some time to figure out who the killer was.

Riley has a real talent for describing a multitude of personalities along with the ability to create some pretty twisted and dark people. So believable due to the layers she uses to paint them, catching nuances and quirks where often authors miss the mark by making the villains two dimensional.

Another great book.

Nick and Meadow

Riley has out done herself with this one I absolutely loved every moment of it. I normally avoid if I see FBI attached to a book. it just isn't normally my type of thing but this has made me re-evaluate that completely. I loved Nick and Meadow was so soft and scared but watching as she came out of her shell was beautiful. I loved the story and the writing. Thank you for a wonderful ride Riley! the Narrator's performed it perfectly too which really brought the story to life. I can't wait for the next one

A quick read

A quick read, full of suspense and a good dose of romance. Nick and Meadow had been eyeing each other up in a coffee shop for a few years before their paths crossed for real. I liked the fact that neither of them held back when they first got together. Meadow had her insecurities but Nick had her back and I loved how he stood up for her.
The plot was very predictable. There were no surprises with who the murderer was but I enjoyed the journey to finding them. Also, I loved the dog who was a real hero.

Captivating!

This is the first book in The Next Generation Series, a spinoff of The 707 Freedom Series, a Romantic Suspense (I need this series!). You do not need to read The 707 to enjoy The Next Generation but it is recommended. Nick and Meadow's story is fast paced, and entertaining, filled with action, danger, romance, and twists and turns. Nick, a FBI Agent, is very handsome, and protective. He is such a great man! Meadow is a strong survivor, smart, and resilient. She is a beautiful character. I liked Sally, the service dog. She definitely is a great addition to the story. The storyline is emotional, and captivating. The world building is very interesting. This is an excellent introduction to the series. Looking forward to listening to Chasing Honor, the next book in the series. Troy Duran and Devon Grace did an outstanding job with the narration. Troy Duran already is on my list of favorite narrators. Devon Grace is a new narrator to me. She has a beautiful voice, pleasant to listen to. I enjoyed it. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. If you like Romantic Suspense, this one is for you.

A short, fast, gripping listen

Having read the author before, I had an idea of what to expect, but I was still surprised. In a good way, because I enjoy a good detective story with a crazy serial killer. But it isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, so be prepared for disturbing content.

As the name of the series suggests, it’s a sequel series, but there’s no need to read the previous series to understand this one. Major events are explained enough to get a feel of those side characters and their stories, and don’t distract from the current plot.

Nick is a FBI agent investigating a gruesome murder that reminds him of a past case that was never closed. By re-opening the case, he discovers that there may have been a survivor, the killer’s first victim, and she might be the key to find the murderer. The victim, Meadow, was left disfigured by the attack.

For a FBI crack team, Nick’s team missed a lot of things during the first investigation, if they’re now able to find lots of new information. While necessary to the plot, this bothered me a bit. The author covers it by insisting Nick was a new agent, but he wasn’t alone in the team. But whatever. Also, even though it was needed to develop the love story, the coincidence of Nick and Meadow knowing each other was a bit too much.

What was nice though, was the fact that Nick was attracted to Meadow despite her scars. Of course, he knew her without them, and thought she was beautiful already. Still it encouraged him to have positive things to say about them. That Meadow needed a man’s validation to feel better was a bit annoying too. Since the victims’ beauty is the motive for the murders, it’s understandable that physical attributes are at the center of the story and a plot device though. The whole message is positive, so I didn’t mind.

The murder plot itself was quite good. The author slips little hints that keep the reader guessing who the culprit is. Though the revelation isn’t a major twist, the mystery is kept for a long time. Since it isn’t a long book, it doesn’t hold for too long either. The story is paced well, with quieter moments–usually about Meadow and Nick’s relationship–and some investigation, with a slight acceleration toward the end.

The narration was mostly good. Both narrators did their character well, not so much the other’s character. It felt like they weren’t voicing the same character sometimes. The female narrator was good for Meadow’s quiet demeanor, while the male narrator’s deep voice was perfect for Nick. Still a short, fast, gripping listen.

quick

Quick and okay story - not as much mystery or complexity as I was expecting. Meadow is so understandably defined by her past and appearance - this makes it hard to see why Nick is attracted to her other than physically. Sally, the service dog, is a good addition to the story.


Listened to the audiobook:
Narration well done and made the book more enjoyable.

A fabulous romantic thriller

Wow, I listened to this in one sitting - I didn't want to stop. Great character development. I Loved Nick!!! Meadow has some self-esteem issues and Nick never gave up on her. The serial killer plotline was great and I loved how unique it was. Recommend.

This series follows the kids of the 707 Freedom Series but is completely standalone (but I would recommend going back).

The narration brought the story to life. Fabulous narrators.
