Publisher's Summary

Way too young, 11-year-old Tucker Creed and his six-year-old neighbor, Sylvie Bissenette, find they have something awful in common. Creed then decides he's going to do everything in his limited power to shield his Sylvie from her ordeal. So he does, and Creed and Sylvie form a bond that grows and blossoms with their ages. They plot to leave their lives behind, the town they live in that will hold them down, and the histories they share that, unless they break free, will bury them. Sylvie goes to their special place; Creed never shows, and she doesn’t see him again until it’s too late. With Creed gone, Sylvie is forced to endure a nightmare and do the unspeakable to end it. To deal, she develops a hard shell with sharp edges through which very few can break. So when Creed again finds his Sylvie, he discovers the girl he loved is locked away, and he has to find his way back into her heart without getting shredded in the process.

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    "Very good story. :)"

    4 stars

    This was a very good story. I liked Sylvie and Creed, their past is painful but I'm so glad they finally ended up together after getting years stolen from them.

    I really liked Sylvie. She had a tough life but made her way and still managed to be a good, kind woman....even with her being a bad ass. Sylvie grew up in a home with an abusive father and a drunk step-mother. She was 6 years old when she sneakily leaves the house to avoid hearing the fighting and ends up meeting Creed. He's 5 years older than her but he has a bad home life too and they become friends. She finally has someone that understands and will be there for her and that makes all the difference for Sylvie.

    Through the years Sylvie & Creed grow up and there's a special connection between them. They finally become involved when she's 17 (although he wont go all the way physically until she's 18) and make plans to run away together when she turns 18. Unfortunately things don't work out as planned. Creed doesn't meet Sylvie when they're supposed to leave town and her life becomes hell.

    Creed didn't want to disappoint Sylvie and loved her a lot. Sylvie was everything to him and Creed was a man of his word...even that young he was a good man. I can't say why he didn't show up for Sylvie but I will say it wasn't his choice and I felt so bad for him and Sylvie.

    Fast forward 16 years and Creed and Sylvie meet back up. He has certain ideas of what her life was after their "split" years before that end up not to be true. She has no clue why he never showed and is very hurt (even after all these years although she tries to bury it). She's very resistant to talking to him but she's been brought in to work with him on a job. She's unwilling to look affected by Creed so she pretends it doesn't affect her and works with him. Fortunately this gives Creed an in and he's able to talk to her (eventually).

    Once Sylvie & Creed start sharing what happened with their pasts, things get better between them. They work on re-establishing their relationship and bonding again. While all this is going on they're working the job and dealing with life. I really was happy to see them grow together again. What they lost and went through was so sad it is great to see them building happy times and a future. There are multiple issues to work out but once their back together Sylvie & Creed are solid and I loved seeing it.

    This was a very good book. I really enjoyed it and was very happy for Sylvie & Creed. They deserved a happy ending. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I'd recommend this story. Thumbs up! :D

    "I know this because..."
    What about Mackenzie Cartwright’s performance did you like?

    when you forget about the reader - that's a sign that she's not doing anything distracting. Ms Cartwright's performance was consistent in tone and character differentiation - very pleasant voice. In the future, if she is the narrator of a book, I'd probably check it out.


    Any additional comments?

    I've been enjoying this author, but there are a few phrases she repeats so often in ALL of her books, I can't believe they aren't edited out. Is she getting paid by the word? How many times the sentence after the character notices something starts with : "I know this because..." It is driving me crazy. It's a redundant phrase, "He was happy. I knew this because he smiled." "He was upset. I know this because he was glaring at me." "He really loved me. I know because he held me." It is maddening., I love her plots and characters. but I just can't tune that out anymore. PLEASE, Miss Ashley - get a RED PEN and ditch that phrase.

    "Powerfully breathtaking!"
    Would you listen to Creed again? Why?

    I would listen to "Creed" again most definitely! Just as in the first book of this series K.A. pulls you in and won't let you go. This book really gets into what true love, should and can be, found and held onto in the darkest and brightest of hours!


    What other book might you compare Creed to and why?

    The first in this series "Knight" is as intense and drawing as "Creed." Don't start this series with the sense of a silly love story.....way beyond that!. Both books so far are topping my list of the best ever written and most entertaining to listen to. They draw you into the mechanics of lifetimes filled with power , money , control , loss , and love...unfathomable love.


    What about Mackenzie Cartwright’s performance did you like?

    She just becomes the people she is portraying. From childhood innocence to adult situations she doesn't let up and can swtch from one to the other without losing the momentum of the story line


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I could not turn this audio down for a break at all. This book is jaw dropping at times , maddening and frustrating at others and compelling enough to make you want to stand up and cheer! No single moment was better than the next


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the remaining in this series carry on with the same idea of good girl bad guy , bad girl good guy feel to them . Cant wait to listen to to the next one!

    "Nice addition to the series"

    At first I was not sure that I would enjoy this book. I really liked Knight, but was hesitant on ordering Creed after reading the publisher's summary. The story of a six-year-old girl and 11-year-old boy didn't appeal to me, and I was not sure how the story was going to unfold. Boy was I wrong, and I ended up really enjoying the story of Sylvie and Creed.

    "Best so far"

    I actually really liked this novel. I liked the fact that the lead female didn't get so scared, she couldn't speak. She must be a hell of a gal because she was able to get over, what I felt, was an intolerable act by her man. I liked the originality of this story.

    I do not agree with the negative reviews, that were written; not at all. As a matter of fact, I believe that this is one of the better KA novels. So enjoy!

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I usually enjoy KA books, but this one failed to get my attention. I didn't get past the first two chapters.

    Story
    "Bad Porn"
    Would you try another book written by Kristen Ashley or narrated by Mackenzie Cartwright?

    No


    What was most disappointing about Kristen Ashley’s story?

    There was the nub of a story in there but it was marred by almost incessant, badly written porn scenes. The female characters were all portrayed as passive, sale-able objects.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Mackenzie Cartwright’s performances?

    no


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation at the multiple, unnecessary, horrendous sex scenes and the truly appalling attitudes towards women.

    "BAD ASS STORY ON ALL FRONTS!!"

    Sylvia is as bad ass and powerful as all the alpha males Ashley creates, whilst suffering through a bad past at the heart of this book is an endearing love story that originates at childhood. This series as a whole is much darker and haunting as the characters battle their pasts. Therefore it's not quite as funny as Ashley's other ingenious series (Rock Chick Series). Whilst I find this delicate romance story touching as you hear it progress over years and years ever since Sylvia was six - yet that was the one annoying part about this story I didn't like the constant flashbacks although I can see how they are vital to this story.
