For the last two months, Brianna has discovered something she never thought she would again: Hope. After the horror of being Ian's slave for ten months, a fate she never imagined she'd escape, it feels as if she is living a dream. She has freedom she hadn't expected to have again, and she wakes up every morning not fearing what the day will bring.
There is also Stephan. The man who saved her from the daily torture she had to endure at the hands of Ian and his friends. The same man who makes her heart race with just the thought of him. Life is good. Outside forces are determined to conspire against them, however. When Brianna's father shows up on her doorstep, it sends her world spiraling out of control. He brings with him new information about how Brianna ended up in Ian's clutches, but will it make a difference? Will Stephan be able to find a way to make Ian pay for all he made Brianna suffer? As Brianna and Stephan try to find out the truth, their relationship is tested. She is forced to face her past head on and deal with the ugly reality of what happened to her. Will Stephan's love be enough to see her through her newest challenge, or will the fragile trust they've built come crumbling down around them as the truth makes itself known?

Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Sorry but i just had to laugh at how pathetic Brianna (Lead Lady) was. Being Abused can offer you several choices to take on Life's Highway but for me it left me Scared but Strong (Thank God) not so Weak and so totally unrealistic like Brianna's behaviour was described. All Abused people have there scar's but Brianna was portrayed as a total nutter and should of been under psychiatric help. There was Hot Sex but... I could not connect with any of the story..
I enjoyed the information related to BDSM and the story was ok. However Ana was annoying she lacked so much strength. I felt her strength could have been built up more. Very disappointed there was any finality to this book and there wasn't another book to finish this out. Real bummer😒
The book is pretty sexual but I was so interested in learning why people would choose this life style, I couldn't quit listening to it. I was surprised about the ending. Hoping there will be a sequel.
Good book and story.. I sure hope this is a trilogy... or at least Haas a sequel.
The one down Side to the whole book was the female narrative - she sounded like Brianna was stupid and slow.
While some of the content was enjoyable and entertaining, I found that the heroine, Anna, continued to lack in true character development. At times her childlike understanding and mentality makes Stephen's sexual pursuit of her disturbing. Their relationship is too much like parent/child rather than true D/s. There is too little evidence that she is capable of making any decisions for herself.
The writing reads in such a linear fashion that it can sometimes seem like listening to someone read a list. There are no real subplots and no true insight into any other characters. It's an okay effort for a new writer, but the author needs to display some more advanced skills to be of the caliber that I would expect for a published piece.
Some of the rating goes toward the narrators who I did genuinely enjoy, especially Benjamin Ellis. They cannot be blamed for reading the book as it was written.
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
Although I loved the story I found Anna a bit to scared for me I know she went through a lot. I also hope that there is another book because this left a few unanswered questions like why is her father trying to get her back and what will happen with Stephen and Anna will he get in trouble so many unanswered questions.
I loved that there were two narrators, it made the characters more realistic. I was hoping there was a happy ending to this book so that waiting for book four wouldn't be so arduous, unfortunately that is not the case. I hope Ms Hayes decides to release the next book sooner.
They both have great speaking voices and Ms Burney was able to inflect the childlike quality into her voice whereas Mr Ellis was strong, "dominant" and very masculine.
I cried at the end, I look forward to the outcome and hope to see them together again soon.
