Clint nearly jumped out of his skin when someone’s strong arm snaked around his waist and pulled him back against a firm body. Warm breath blew in his ear along with the words, “You left the door unlocked again. I could be the neighborhood whack job here to bludgeon you to death after defiling you.”
“You scared the crap out of me!” Clint yelped, trying to squirm away, but it was useless. “You’re the guy on this street with all the big guns.” Behind him Griff chuckled and used one finger to move Clint’s hair away from his neck. He pressed a soft kiss to the spot. Clint glared down at the dogs. “And you two! You need watchdog lessons.”
Griff let go of Clint, turned him, and shook him by the shoulders for a second. “Lock the goddamn doors. Even if someone smashes through the storm door, you’ll at least hear them.” He raised his eyebrows and leaned away from Clint, letting him go. “For me. Please.”
“What you really don’t want is some moron busting up the storm door since you’d have to help me replace it,” Clint muttered.
Griff pointed up. “Hey, I happen to have a deep appreciation for that door. Notice I’m tactfully not mentioning how delightful you are when you work on a construction project?” Clint burst out laughing. Griff’s blue-gray eyes twinkled, and the corners crinkled in the way Clint loved when Griff smiled. “Sorry I’m late,” Griff said, leaning down to pet the dogs.

Alpha Book Club: Mollien gives 4.5 stars and says: Believable Chemistry between these two men that have shared many years together. The pacing is fast and exciting. Dramatic wonderful ending. Read the review.
Archaeolibrarian: Merissa gives 4 stars and says: This was a great story I was really able to enjoy. With plenty of snippets into a writer's life, plus the procedural side of things, there was always something happening for me to get to grips with. I loved how Clint was so strong all the way through, and yet proved himself to be human too. I thought how it was written for both him and Griff afterwards was completely believable, and certainly kept the tension going. Read the review.
Bayou Book Junkie: Tracy gives 5 stars and says: I highly recommend this book. It had mystery, suspense, and even a steamy love scene.

Crystal's Many Reviewers: Crystal Marie give 5 stars and says: Noble sure knows how to add the right amount of suspense and drama into the books. One thing that I love the most about this series is it’s not sex driven — it’s driven by the story itself. Read the review.
Rainbow Awards Judge Comments
Wow. I read this book and was hooked from the first chapter. I smiled. I laughed. I was so tense with the events that occur in the story that my stomach clenched and I wanted to be blue to read faster, but I wasn't able to. To feel that level of tension, that thrilling grip of suspense really reflects the author's amazing writing style. I wasn't even aware that this book was part of a series until the end after the About The Author. Clint and Griff's story was so fully developed, so fully formed, every character fleshed out fully, that I didn't need to read the other books in the series to be able to understand what was going on, though the author's writing style was so engaging that I can't wait to read them. Each scene was so wonderfully described that I felt as if I were there, struggling to escape, caving, or searching for my loved one. This is definitely a book that I can see myself going back to read over and over again. So great.
Multitasking Momma give 5 stars and recommends Jewel Cave: This is story is lengthy for it tells all, but it reads short and fast as the pace set was quite exhausting at times. Add in the intensities rising from the scenes involving Clint's ordeal and all I can say is: WOW. Read the review.
MM GoodBooks Reviews gives 4.5 stars. Pixie says: Oh this is a really good story that has stalking, kidnapping and a rescue, but it also shows the aftereffects and the rebuilding of the closeness that had been lost to time. Read the review.
Inked Rainbow Reads Sarah gives Jewel Cave 4.5 stars and says: I love this book. Noble drops just the right clues in just the right places to keep her audience spellbound and a little terrified. Read the review.
Romancing the Book: Recommended by Lori: A lovely rose and recommended read by Lori: I love a good suspense/mystery book. I love to be scared by the author because of their words, and the way they form paragraphs to create a story that helps the reader become so involved in their world, everything else falls by the wayside. It’s fun to read a scary story and jump at every sound because the author was able to convey mystery, suspense, and scary into a paragraph. Ms. Noble was able to accomplish this with this book. Read the review.
The Blogger Girls: Nikyta gives 4.5 stars and says: Even still, this was definitely the best book in the series so far. I ADORED the characters and how even after a decade and in a rut, they still loved each other so much. I loved it! Read the review.
Rainbow Book Reviews: Christy gives 4 stars and says: A very exciting addition to the series, although I wished it was longer. I would've loved more description and information about caving. It's always been something I've never been sure I could do, so what there was brought an added benefit to my enjoyment. A definite thumbs-up to Elizabeth for the ending. It didn't just stop at the rescue, it continued and dealt with the difficult emotional and physical effects. Read the review.
