Steamy, captivating and developed characters. Get yourself lost in this book! :-) You won't regret it! What I love most is that being stuck in traffic now seems like a get-away!
First of all the narrator is great! The book had some pretty good twists in it too. It's almost the same storyline as 50 shades of Grey so that wad kind of annoying but it still wad a very good book. looking forward to reading the next one!
Narrator did a great job! The storyline it's not original but keeps you entertained and interested. Worth listening. I was as curious as Sarah
I loved this book and I am so ready for more! Sara and Chris and what is up with Mark! The intensity surely makes your heart race and other places ------. I'll let you figure it out for yourself.
Steamy, suspenseful romance
Not my typical read
A terrific voice for reading, kept the story going
It really leaves you wondering and is not predictable.
This book has a little bit of everything; romance, mystery, suspense, and steamy hot love scenes. You really get into the main character, knowing her thoughts and feelings. What I enjoyed most is that the book was not predictable, and I wondered many times what would happen next.
Chris and Sara two tormented souls which have spent there lives running away from their insecurities, nightmares, and the darkness of the past. The deepest darkest secrets one holds tight to ones heart and guards them for eternity. Fate had a different plan for them. Together they shall find a way to overcome the torment and darkness from the past.
The author has a spectacular way of describing the characters emotions and entwining them with the past and present through Rebecca's journals, Mark's Art gallery, Allure and music. It's a roller coaster ride and if you're ready for the adrenaline rush step on but be warned, you will be changed forever.
The excerpt below is from the book and I loved how she used a few songs to describe Sara's internal struggles and emotions.
Spellbound, I walk forward,enchanted by the twinkling night lights and the haze surrounding the distant Golden Gate Bridge.
We are above the city, untouchable, in a palace in the sky. How amazing it must be to live here and wake up to this view every day. Lights twinkling, almost as if they are talking to one another, laughing at me as they creep open a door to the hollow place inside me I've rejected only moments before in the elevator.
I swallow hard as the song "Broken" from the band Life-house fills the room, because Chris doesn't know how personal it is to me. I'm falling apart. I'm barely breathing. I'm barely holding on to you.
This song,this place with the words, and I am raw and exposed, as if cut and bleeding. Who was I kidding with the refusal to hide anymore? This is why I have hidden. The past begins to pulse to life within me, and I am seconds from remembering why I feel this way. I refuse to process the lyrics and shove them aside.I don't want to remember. I can't go there. I squeeze my eyes shut, trying to seal those old wounds,desperate to feel anything but their presence.
His mouth is next to mine,his clean male scent all around me. "You need to know that right now. You need to know that won't change."
But the song does change, and this time to another track of what must be a Lifehouse CD. "Nerve Damage" begins to play. I see through your clothes, your nerve damage shows.Trying not to feel....anything that's real. I laugh bitterly at the words, and Chris pulls back to study me. And I am not blind to what I see in the depths of his green eyes, what I've missed until now but sensed. He is damaged as I am. We have too many of the wrong things in common to be more than sex, and the realization is freedom to me.
All I want is the here and now this piece of time.
Some part of me realizes the window behind me is glass and all things can break. He knows this, too, it's in the dark glint of his eyes, and he wants me to worry about it. He's pushing me, testing me, trying to get me to break. Because I slid beneath his composure? Because he really believes I am out of my league? And maybe I am, but not tonight. Tonight, as the song has said, I am broken, and for the first time perhaps ever, I am not denying the truth of all of my cracks. I am living them.
No favorites. The characters have there unique personality.
Grace Grant is a talented narrator. She is able to capture the characters persona.
I have now read this series including Rebeccas Journals and I would read these all over again. I have been telling my friends all about this series and also gave my cousin 3 books for her birthday. This book had me hooked!
I really enjoyed Mark Compton. He was so secure in himself and had such confidence that made him so sensual. He was the one who kept me interested. Such mystery.
Listening to a book helps me since I visualize from the way she spoke. This really helped with trying to understand all of there characteristics.
I can't wait for the next books!!!!
