    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand. Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    Mickey Bolitar’s year can’t get much worse. After witnessing his father’s death and sending his mom to rehab, he’s forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For a while, it seems like Mickey’s train wreck of a life is finally improving - until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley’s trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn’t who she claimed to be.

    neutral.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Mickeys friend. The girl. I cant think of her name (i read a lot) Shes was witty and always there with a comeback. And i liked Mickey too! He was so determined!


    Have you listened to any of Nick Podehl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Well i read the fallow up to this and i liked the first book way better....I liked THIS story line better than the second even though the second is part 2. If that makes any sense


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending!

    Would you try another book from Harlan Coben and/or Nick Podehl?

    I would try another book. In fact i have one of his paperbacks my nanny gave me that sounds better than both of the books in this series.


    If you’ve listened to books by Harlan Coben before, how does this one compare?

    ive only read the first book in this series by him. So i havent not heard anything else or read anything else of his.


    Did Nick Podehl do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I think he did. There were a lot of young characters in the book that i think he tackled the attitudes just right on.


    Did Seconds Away inspire you to do anything?

    Not really lol


    Any additional comments?

    I LIKED it. I did not love it. Keep my interest though. I listen while i walk and jog. I never once found myself not connected to drifting into my own mind while listening. Which is so easy to do while running or walking. Esp bringing along you child. Just not as much excitement as i thought there would be. But i did like it.
