Elena Navarro is running from an abusive husband with criminal ties. Terrified to trust anyone, she finds Josh's tender care a miracle, but his fame could be a death sentence for them both. When echoes of a shared past life threaten, Josh questions his sanity, but he's a white knight to the core and cannot stop trying to help her, even at the risk of his life.

Wow! This book had a lot of inner turmoil and conversations about how they didn’t belong in the same world. It kind of went on and on. So, it’s like a book on angst, and I do hate an over-abundance of angst. This is the biggest book in the series and there wasn’t any point to making it so long by adding so much angst. I found myself skipping page after page when Elena started her thoughts that she didn’t belong in his world and Josh’s thought of having to go back to LA without her because the people there would eat her alive. It became very repetitive. From the time they met it was these kinds of thoughts and they did become boring after about 150 pages, yet still they continued thinking this.
I wasn’t crazy about her dreams/visions, either. I think that’s what made the story soooo long. I realize they were soulmates but the dreams/visions were kind of boring. I was more interested in the husband, Richard, and Guzman, and what was going on in that arena. As it turns out, the worst thing about this book was that Richard didn’t get all that he deserved. He was such a vicious bas*ard
And I have to give Josh kudos for being soooo patient with Elena. Richard beat the backbone right out of her. I didn’t think she’d ever get any of it back. After 200+ pages of her being scared of her own shadow I was beginning to think the book would end that way, no matter how many times Josh proved to her that she could trust him.
I will continue to read Ms. Brashear but I’ll stick to her 250 pages-or so books. I’ve read 8 of her books and this one is my least favorite.
There wasn’t much sexual tension but the sex was good.
As to the narrator: As always, Eric Dove did a great job. I never get tired of listening to him. All the women sound like women and all the men sound sexy.
