I loved this book - yes their relationship was like a rollercoaster ride of emotions due to their obsessive and dysfunction love for each other. Then the break-up period was just heartbreaking and I felt really sorry for each of them even tho I knew why Gideon was doing it sadly Eva didn't. I won't give the ending away, but I thought the last 1hr was soooo touching.
I think it was a sexually charged, romantic, dark and compelling listen which had great characters who were all involved in a tense but joyous love story that's totally addictive - for me anyway.
My patience is going to be severely tested as I will have to wait until next May for the third installment Entwined With You.
Worth a credit? Yes absolutely and after I finished it I could have listened to it again.
My fellow reviewers have pretty much said it all about this book - it's passionate, romantic, 2 likeable main characters who are facing similar challenges in their successful careers are accidentally but happily thrown together. Trouble is he's sworn off sex and she's looking for some so can she wait or will he give in.
Not as hot as some of her other books but still an adult only listen and very enjoyable.
Worth a credit? I have found all her books to be very creditworthy but come on Audible we want more L.J. to add to our libraries please.
Izzy and Axel were teenage sweethearts and after graduating Axel joins the Marines - they both promise to keep in touch but things go terribly wrong when fate messes up their plans with heartbreaking consequences for them both. Izzy's just out of an abusive marriage however she's emotionally damaged, scared and lost but, with the help of her two very good m/f friends, Izzy's coping and waiting for her husband to sign the divorce papers. But he's not letting her go that easy and starts threatening her so Greg, her male best friend (who's an ex Marine), uses Corps Security which is made up of his fellow ex Marines and.... yeah you guessed it - Axel's one of them.
When the two meet again after years of anger and pain it's dramatic, heartbreaking and raw but their chemistry's still there.... now if only they could calmly talk to each other it might work out but unfortunately neither one wants to listen.
It's an emotional and frustrating listen with two heartbroken lovers with a lot of hurt filled 'baggage' from their past threatening to tear them further apart and there's deadly drama from the ex. Great secondary characters, a handsome, sexy and very Alpha Hero and a Heroine who's been through Hell and it's only going to get worse before it gets better. Very passionate pleas, tear filled breakdowns, hot sex, heart-felt sorrow and pain and a traumatic climactic bloody twist all eventually lead to a sweet and loving HEA.
Dual POV's, dual narrators who both did a great job in bringing the story and characters to life with all the emotions needed in this roller-coaster love story.
Worth a credit? A well narrated non-stop and addictive listen and a great intro into a new series about hot Alpha ex Marines finding love makes this, IMHO, a creditworthy addition to any romance lover's library.
