Tyson develops an online relationship with Michaela, a young woman, with whom he has not yet had a face to face encounter. She resides in Bucharest, Romania while he calls Colorado his home. Michaela is an attractive and open-minded young lady. Tyson is a "gutsy" young man in his early 30s, who has never been afraid to dream. Through many months of e-mail correspondence, they share the details of their lives. Relying on daily e-mail letters, the characters develop feelings for one another as they candidly communicate about themselves and their lives, and most importantly about their values and their feelings.
Tyson, who is honest from the start, explains to Michaela that due to an unfortunate accident in his early 20s, he is a quadriplegic. He describes his physical limitations, but more importantly he shares his ability to hope, to dream, to create, and to imagine. Once they meet the roles of hunter and prey begin to slightly blur, and money and betrayal begin to contaminate their prose.

Gripping and Compelling!! I couldn't take my ear buds out. The story was masterfully written but with a very unique and powerful personal touch. Some of the best narrating I've experienced yet. I loved this book!
The way the author put you inside the minds of the characters.
The main character Tyson was especially interesting because of his rare combination of strength and vulnerability.
The risk and reward of blind passion.
Powerful story that I recommend to everyone!
Unique Romance Betrayal
I liked the way the narrator, Funda Duval, changes her voice, tempo, cadence, and accent so perfectly. It really helps to distinguish the various charters dialogs. I liked the contrast of dreamy written love letters and harsh cold reality.
Favorite scene was when Tyson has a bizarre dream while visiting Romania. The narration is outstanding, it created movie like visuals in my head.
One of the main characters is disabled and he attacks life with a confident attitude. This inspired me to view my life and issues from another perspective.
This was only my fourth listen to an audiobook and it held my attention well. Funda Duval does a magnificent young Romanian female accent.
