    Breaking rules and breaking hearts.

    Free-spirited Chloe lives life on the edge. Unlike her soon-to-be married sisters, she isn't ready to settle into a quiet life running their family's newly renovated inn. But soon her love of trouble - and trouble with love - draws the attention of the very stern, very sexy sheriff who'd like nothing better than to tame her wild ways.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you're looking for a complex, thrilling edge of your seat, or who-done-it read, this is not the book for you.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I knew it was going to end the way it did!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    It's a new narrator for this book, so it can be a bit difficult to get passed that since the first two books were done by Celeste.

    It's a good listen if you're looking for something not too complex. Simple but enjoyable.


    What about Celeste Ciulla’s performance did you like?

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers. Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family.

    Barely a teenager, Kaylin Neya is a thief, a fugitive and an attempted assassin. She also has a smart mouth, sharp wits and mysterious markings on her skin. All of which make her perfect bait for a child prostitution sting in the city of Elantra - if she survives her first meeting with the Hawks!

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I normally don't read or listen to science fiction, but I decided to branch out and I'm glad I did! At first I wasn't sure what was happening but it didn't take long to figure it out and follow along. I will definitely listen to it again. The diversity of the characters makes it fun. It's a great listen for those looking to try a book in a new genre.

Then, one year later, mountain lions are spotted rather frequently around Maya's home and her reactions to them are somewhat . . . unexpected. Her best friend, Daniel, has also been experiencing unexplainable premonitions about certain people and situations.
