Hannah Rhodes has just gotten out of a long-term relationship, and she isn't looking for a new man in her life. But after a night out with the girls and one too many tequila shots, her plans to stay man-free are blown all to hell. She finds herself in bed with the smoldering stranger from a party six months back and immediately knows she's in trouble, big trouble. And the last thing Hannah needs is more trouble.
Her last relationship took her out like an emotional freight train, and she's trying to piece back the stability her life once had.
Greyson Holt's biggest fear in life is to end up like his father, like the man who left him as a child and broke his mother's heart. He vowed to never be responsible for that kind of carnage. Men could be cruel, and that kind of brutality was in his blood. He never allows himself to get too close to anyone, until he meets Hannah.
Something about her makes him want to try, but a man can't change overnight.
Will Holt be able to catch Rhodes every time he lets her go? Or will their chase end in heartbreak?

I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
This story is an okay beginning for a new series. That being said it was not an overwhelming story, and one that I would consider an average love story.
Hannah and Greyson are the main characters of the book, but I found the sub-characters entertaining. Hannah first meets Greyson when she is in a committed relationship.She met him at a party and then apparently forgot about him. Fast forward a few months and she is single and after a night of bar hopping with her friends finds herself waking up the next morning in Greyson's bed. No memory of what occurred the night before.
Greyson and Hannah end up beginning to date, but from the beginning he shows jealous tendencies and what the book refers to as "alpha male" behavior. Hannah's previous relationship failed because of her bf's manic behavior. Greyson begins to exhibit some of the same tendencies and Hannah has to determine if she is up to the challenge of fighting the demons that have shaped Greyson's behavior.
The story attempts to bring to light some of the baggage that can occur from an abusive childhood, but as I stated earlier the story just did not capture my interest. It was a good listen, I used a credit, but I would suggest waiting for a sale.
Addicted to any type of Romance/Erotica audio books.
I really enjoyed this book. Just at a time when I needed a good fun-loving story this popped up and it was exactly what I needed. No it wasn't angsty, it wasn't really deep but that is exactly what I was looking for . This was a fun, very sexy book with a great couple and just as great secondary characters. I love a bossy alpha male and Greyson is so good at it. I can't wait for the next book on audio!
The narration was great! I love Duel narration but these two even did good with the opposite sex voices!
Audio Reviewer under Audio Flow. I enjoy delving into the imagination of writers and hearing it read aloud by seasoned and new audio actors.
I own this entire series in paperback, but had no time to read it. I am so glad I gave it a listen.
The lives of Hannah and Grayson would never be the same after the first night. This book shows how relationships can seem perfect, but still have problems when one or both parties have pasts to overcome.
Such good writing by Anne. Her sense of humor was felt throughout the story and the sex scenes took me to tingle town!
The characters had depth and the secondaries played key roles which I loved because they weren't placed there for background noise.
Perfectly narrated by Lucy and Aiden. I believe it was my first time hearing them. Great work!
“I love that girl more than life itself and I’ll chase her to the ends of the Earth before I’ll let her go again.”
This is a story about finding love that makes you feel like you are coming home.You know in the beginning of a relationship when you're so obsessed with one another that you just eat, sleep & BREATH the other person... Greyson Holt & Hannah Rhodes bring you all of those feels and more! Along with crazy, magnetic attraction, petty fights where you just want to reach inside the book & give the characters a good shake !
I didn't like this story. The male part narrated by Aiden Snow was good but he only got 2 chapters in the whole book. He was the only reason I bought this book. If I had known he had such a small part I wouldn't have purchased it.
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
I've read this book and was nervous that the narration wouldn't add to the book, but I had nothing to fear because Lucy Rivers and Aiden Snow did this book right.
Greyson is a damaged man that has a hard time letting good things happen to him and Hannah is a strong woman who learned through experience that she can't lose herself to a man. They fall hard and fast, but can Greyson keep his demons at bay and can Hannah be patient enough to wait for Greyson to get his shiz together?
I love the heat and spark of these 2 characters and I love how real the story is. Awesome book all around.
