Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the kind that makes her obsessive and stalker-crazy. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she's determined to break down the remaining walls between them so they can build a foundation that's based on more than just amazing sex. Except Hudson's not the only one with secrets. With their pasts pulling them into a web of unfounded mistrust, Alayna turns to the one person who knows Hudson the best - Celia, the woman he almost married. Hoping for insight from someone who understands all sides of the story, Alayna forms a bond with Celia that goes too far - revealing things about Hudson that could end their love for good. This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn't spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway....

Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Be prepared to be torn up,wrung out and emotionally fucked... Once again Laurelin has me an emotional wreak by the end of this book. This is twice now that I am left with a book hangover that is sure to affect me for quite a long time and with Carly Robins addictive narration you will get drawn into every word spoken... Seriously, this couple will consume you so if you are looking for a new obsession, well here it is !
I must say that the angst that goes on in this book will put you under it's spell, grab you and keep you 100% emotionally involved... I am so nervous for book three in this series. I mean, I feel like Hudson and Alayna are solid. They made a lot of ground in this book. They are committed to each other and I don’t see that changing, I am just nervous about what they will have to face next. I am worried about how much glorious torture Ms.Paige is going to put me through...
I am so committed and dedicated to this couple that I don’t think I will ever get enough of these two... If I could I would hold Laurelin hostage and make her create an endless series of Hudson and Alayna... how totally yummy that would be... :)
It ranks about in the middle.
This is part of a series, something that seems inevitable these days, so I do not feel as if there was a real ending.
There isn't one that stands out as exceptional. I really wanted to get through this book. It suffered from the middle lag that many trilogies do. It was definitely my least favorite of the three.
Absolutely not. I actually stopped listening and read the ending, It was quicker.
I like the narrator. She's good, but this story was just too long.
I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.
I don't know that I've ever written a review before finishing a story. All I can say is that the word "amazeballs" was uttered and I choked on my lunch. The sad thing is, as a grad student teaching the younger generation, I know that these girls exist. This girl is a flipping idiot. Which in a weird way is interesting... a protagonist who is openly vulnerable to psychotic stalker tendencies and obsessions.
What I wouldn't give for a woman in one of these in-love-with-a-billionare books that actually has a brain on her shoulders and uses it. Alayna is hot but has an MBA. She should act like it. Stalker issues aside, she makes the most asinine choices and is easily duped. No MBA pro (as she is portrayed) should be duped the way she is. Within a few hours of listening she's been coerced by one person to lie to the man she promised to be open with, and let herself be blackmailed all the while keeping that a secret too.
But then... are we really here for the story of a strong independent woman? Or is it the hot steamy sex? But to be honest, it's a bit of a turnoff when the person is lying so much that you start to feel sorry for the guy. And I really do wonder why he's with her.
Mixed feelings on this one.
I don't have time to sit and read, but I have plenty of time to sit and listen! :)
Sorry, couldn't come up with a headliner.
This book is a continuation of the relationship for Lanie and Hudson. Now that she's moving in she has someone else set on breaking them up. Of course you don't have to throw stones very far as this series has several characters putting the odds against them, of course.
I thought it was a lot of the same. They get in a fight, they have sex and make up for 5 minutes. Then she's upset again and they fight and have sex again. It pretty much goes like that until the climax of this story.
I think if your looking for a lusty novel that keeps your ears and face burning, this will do it. Great series.
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
Hudson and Laynie are an interesting couple, yet I felt as though I had to have as much patience with the couple, Laynie in particular, as they did with each other while working on their relationship. Laynie made a lot of stupid mistakes in this one. Mistakes that were "no brainers." Hudson would set a boundary saying, "let's not cross this line (so to speak)," and what does Laynie do???? She crosses the dam line!! But, I felt for Laynie because although Hudson was loving toward her, he still kept secrets on the lock down and with Laynie's curious nature & history, that was not a good combination. I felt for Laynie because she's really trying to make this relationships successful, but struggles due to her past issues, so she over-analyzes and scrutinizes everything much more than the typical heroine due to her obsessive-type of disorder. In this book, the dominant theme is trust. Laynie will learn what women in Hudson's life to trust, at the same time as she's building trust with Hudson himself. The best parts are when Hudson and Laynie come together for their sexy-time and when they overcome emotional hurdles together. Both Hudson and Laynie learn major lessons in this book, but again as we go into the next and final book, I feel as though Laynie has not learned from all of the lessons in this book. For that reason, I'm going to hold off on reading the final installment, until I feel patient again.
Narrator: Carly Robins was excellent and delivered in her performance.
I liked the way Alayne and Hudson understood each other's weaknesses and still were able to love each other. The way they met and then the way they overcame the flaws in their characters.
I liked the way that Hudson let Alayne knew his love was for her. He had never had a woman in his penthouse but he asked her to move in. I liked the way the book started out and the way their love for each other deepened. You could see them both grow more secure.
Alayne was my favorite. Even though she was damaged, she was aware of her limits and sought out her therapist when she felt herself spinning out of control. She was much stronger than she believed and this became more revealed as the story continues. This is the second book in the series of three but may be my favorite.
Yes. I always want to listed to a book in one sitting. I like the way the characters get into your psyche and make you want to learn more about them.
I like Alayne and Hudson and know anyone who likes romance and flawed characters who still manage to stay together with like these books. There are explicit sex scenes so some who prefer plain themes may not enjoy.
yes but only to certain people
the fact that Hudson trys to fight his feelings
when i thought Hudson was going to believe Lainey but he didn't
enjoyed it just as much as book one
