Say something about yourself!
I was given this book for an honest review.
Heartwarming story of two people hiding away with their pain who find relief in one another. The plot is simple. The execution was beautiful with the how's and why's. This has no bad boy and no angst but a lot of emotion and healing with a HEA ending.
I prefer true grit in my romance listens but this is, undeniably, a good romance.
Has both my thumbs angling up!
I like a wide range of genres. Favorites include Horror, SciFi, Fantasy, Thriller, LGBT, classics and history.
A beautiful romance about overcoming grief and the past. The characters felt authentic and real. The story is well executed. Very sweet and heartwarming listen.
The narrator did a decent job however she was somewhat monotone at times.

I got this from audiobook boom. This was a very good story. Two wounded people both, trying to hide from their grief by escaping to an isolated place. But God has something else in store for them. a love that will heal their wounds and make them stronger. They meet as strangers who are brought together due to the sickness of one of them and the other must conquer the fear of a hospital to save the sick one. This story has sex but not too much that it ruins the story. The narration carried the story forward.
I download over 100 books a year. I don't even know how to go about my day without listening to a title. It's my happy place!
This was a good story and a decent listen but I wanted more emotion from the narrator. She had a pleasant voice but there were a few story pivots that needed more emotion than the narrator provided.
I don't give story plots away but at one point, Ian's Mom held Ally and said "Oh sweetheart, welcome back." It was the acknowledgement that Ally's emotional journey was over. It was a tender moment and even reflected back on the book title but was delivered with no emotion.
I liked the story. I even liked the narrator. I just wanted more.
This was an emotional story of two people trying to survive to losses in their lives and the demons that keep them Locked in darkness. The narrator was good I enjoyed listening to this story.

beautiful, tragic, romantic
The hospital. The way they held each other together when they barely knew each other.
I love how she portrays each character! She did a fantastic job!
I love this story and devoured it! I listened to it on Audible and it was only 4 hours and 32 minutes which is really short to me. It is written in 1st person alternating between Ally and Ian. I love this type of writing but sometimes in audiobooks it can go really wrong but not this one. Beth Stewart did a fantastic job at portraying both of the main characters. Taryn Plendl is an amazing author and this story just really reaches your heart and gives you all kinds of feels!
Ally, after having lived through something horrific and losing both her parents moves away from society into a cabin the Colorado Mountains. She has lived alone, not leaving the mountain for 2 years just working on her artwork and getting by. She runs only at night and cannot sleep at night without having horrible nightmares reliving the moment that changed her life.
In comes Ian, he moves to the Colorado Mountains seeking seclusion after the loss of his fiancé. He watched as she transformed into another person and was with her at her deathbed and is still processing all of this. When he buys his cabin the realtor lets him know he shares a driveway with a young lady but he wont have to worry about her because she came to the mountains to get away and he will rarely if ever see her. She happens to be the same realtor that sold Ally her cabin.
Fate throws them together when for the first time in 2 years she is sick and needs outside assistance. So she makes her way to her neighbor’s house and asks for help. Ian brings her to the Hospital which is traumatizing for both of them and they create their own shared communication and stick by each others side even though they know little to nothing about each other. This starts their relationship. After Ally is back home Ian has to stay with her to make sure she recovers ok and they form a very close bond.
This is an adorable story about two damaged souls learn to cope and move on with the support of each other and build from the ground up. I cannot wait to see what else this writer creates.

An emotional and heartwarming sometimes heartbreaking second chance at love story. That's not to imply that you are going to spend the whole book being depressed. Your not. Just watching/listening to the characters emotional journey through the story pulls at your emotions.
Ally and Ian were both great characters. Two people who have lived through a devastating event in their lives and have retreated from everyone as a way to cope with their pain, find a second chance at love in each other they were never expecting.
There is a little bit of "steamy" action so if you don’t like any in your books you may want to skip this one.
Beth Stewart did a really good job with the narration. Nice voice. Clearly spoken. Smooth even pace. Good character voices. Very enjoyable .

It is an emotional listen, The back stories of these characters is the guts of the angst.
The way this story was written, I felt like I could see the movie playing in my head
I liked Ally. I felt like she could be my friend.
There were a few heartfelt moments. When she decided to not pick up the pieces...
I received a copy of this audiobook from Audiobook Boom in exchange for an honest review. This was a great listen and the tenderness in the characters was refreshing.
While not an easy beach read, this audiobook was an interesting mix with heavy on the drama and light on the romance. Usually only one of the pair in the couple is traumatized but it turned out that both Ian and Ally are messed up from different tragedies- and they're both young. I could make fun of the fact that a young woman lives by herself in the backwoods with no car in case of emergency, but I am certain this really happens. The story does move along at a leisurely pace packed with emotional turmoil that is unfolded and weaved from 2 different lives into one that is laced together quite nicely. The couple finally works through their issues and are able to have a love story albeit a hard won victory. So, if your in the mood for some personal tragedy romance, this is your story.
The narrator did a nice job and I would recommend her.
