✱✱AudioBook Review✱✱ The Saint by Nana Malone


The Saint Gentlemen Rogues, Book 3 By: Nana Malone Narrated by: Shane East & Kyo Sija Publisher: Sankofa Girl

Kaya Reynolds is a distraction, a rage-inducing pain in the butt, and an absolute magnet for trouble. But when you're a Rogues agent, you don't get to pick your assignments. Unfortunately, you don't get to decline them either. And that's how I ended up fake engaged to the most infuriating woman I've ever met.

The Rogues Division is a top-secret, highly-classified, "I'd tell you but I'd have to kill you" kind of organization. The kind of organization the government pretends not to love having at its disposal.

Kaya Reynolds is our latest asset. If I want to bring down the man who killed my fiancé, I've got to keep her safe. Thing is, the last time I saw her, she kissed the hell out of me...because she was being chased by his goons and she needed a distraction. But something sparked between us—something I have no business thinking about day and night. Especially when we're only pretending to like each other. Aren't we? Yes we are!

This marriage is just for show. I refuse to be tempted by my curvy assignment's soft satin lips, dark mischievous eyes, or the way she looks at me. Even when we're not playing our roles....But nope, NOPE! I lost someone I loved once. And I'm not letting anybody else into my heart. I'm not going there with the woman I'm only pretending to love. It's all about staying in control. And I won't let her tempt me into losing mine.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

First, you just can not go wrong with Shane East, and he proves that once again with Nana Malone's The Saint. Kyo Sija was completely new to me, but she certainly held her own as the voice of Kaya. Both narrators did an excellent job of bringing out the drama and intrigue as well as the romance.
This is the third book in the Gentlemen Rogues series, and while I haven't had the pleasure of reading the first two, the storyline here is easy enough to keep up with. I do intend to catch up on those earlier books because now that I've met the Rogues, I want all the details. If they're as fast-paced as this one, I'm in for some heart-racing reading and/or listening time. As mentioned, the storyline is easy to follow, and we're given everything we need to know for this book. That said, I still hesitate to call it a standalone because there are some unanswered questions, and the epilogue leaves us with a bit of a cliffy (I'm assuming that's a lead-in for the next book).
Do be prepared for plenty of action with your romance. Kaya and Saint's story has flavors of Mission: Impossible and Bourne Identity combined with a steamy romance that certainly sees its fair share of miscommunication. This pair also sees plenty of danger with some near misses and, of course, a kidnapping - once you start reading and figure things out, you'll understand that mentioning a kidnapping is not giving away the book's secrets. It pretty much has to happen with this kind of storyline.
To sum it up, The Saint is everything I've come to expect from Nana Malone, and paired with Shane East and Kyo Sija for the narration, this one is a must-listen.
