Ex-marine and former combat trainer Trent Reed has been shot and placed in war zones behind enemy lines for most of his Marine Corp career. But when his best friend, Logan, calls in a favor, he is faced with one of the hardest decisions of his life - to be or not to be the best man in his wedding.
His turbulent past with races other than his own have him at odds with Logan's new African American fiancée, Katie. When Trent accepts the position against his better judgment, it's done with a heavy heart and the understanding that his friend is soon to be out of his life - for good.
Teal Lofton is finally warming up to Logan, her best friend's fiancé and an ex-convict. As maid of honor in Katie's wedding, she will have to put up with budget issues, mind-numbing tasks, juggling the bride's secret pregnancy, and, worst of all, dealing with Logan's jerk of a best friend and best man.
When shit hits the fan during the groom's dinner and Trent disappears with the wedding rings in tow, Teal flips her lid and chases after him into the worst snowstorm of the decade. A serious accident sets Trent and Teal on an inevitable course of self-discovery and passion like they've never experienced before.

I have repeatedly. It's fluid, funny and hot! Inger pulled this off well. The only problem is being ghetto does not require young ladies to say the F word (or any other foul language) repeatedly. It didn't t fit the fluidity of the story.
Trent. Quiana has come a long way in her narration. She makes Trent so believable and hot you totally forget he s not real. He's funny too.
In the cabin when Teal gives him a hard time.
Yes and did. Over and over.
When I first heard Quiana Goldrum in A Heart Not Easily Broken, I said I would never listen to anything she narrated, but I really wanted this after Incarcerated. I m glad I did! She has grown so much. She pays attention to punctuation/pause time. Also, everyone isn t always skipping through daisies. She creates a character and really tries to stick with it. Each character has a different voice. Little advice: she should focus on NO MORE than four characters for distinguished voices.
Say something about yourself!
I was GRACIOUSLY provided this audiobook at no charge by the author so I wouldn't have to skip a book in the series after receiving "Indelible" in exchange for an unbiased review.
First I want to say that I disagree with the negative reviews of Quiana Goodrum's male narration. I found her interpretation for Trent's accent to be eerily similar to a small coastal southern town in which I lived. I felt drawn to Trent from the beginning by his soft-spoken, slow & patient voice.
I'm still riding the high from the story as I just finished it an hour ago. The tale spun was delectable and I ate up every piece. Things have to happen fast in a 6 hour book so my most common complaint is disbelief in how fast they fall for one another. I get over it, though. There was the topic of PTSD that I thought would play some role but it wasn't mentioned as the book progressed. Maybe I'll see it rise it's ugly head in the next installment. One other point kept niggling me. Trent's concern over Harper's consent to see his son. As Marcus is now 20-21 years old, Harper's opinion isn't important. From the start, Trent talked as if his son was younger.
The book made me laugh, made my heart pound, made me "hot" and completely entertained me. I'm starting on "Indelible: Beneath his Ink" tonight!
TWO HAPPY THUMBS UP!
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
More audible versions please!!!!! LOVE the stories and situations the women find themselves.. I have enjoyed the books now i'm in love & very loyal the any and ALL audio versions.. Can wait for the next book in this series... Applause, applause for these great stories of bwwm....
I enjoyed this story and came away with good feelings for future stories from this author. The. characters and storyline were very well written and flowed smoothly. Once I got past the "twang" in the Narration of the H and the "hood" persona of the h, the story came together. Overall, it's a sweet and touching read that proves Love conquers all.
love the story, I completely disagree with reviews on the narrator she did a great job potraying teal and trent. being that both lead characters were from the south, she did a very good southern accent period I do not think she did a good job with Logan and Katie's voice however great story great performance check my attention the whole time
Love audiobooks w/ a passion! Romance and fantasy tickles my fancy! Especially IR, AA, NA F/F romance &Urban fantasy, oh and YA contemporary
Trent's backstory because it's hard to imagine being in love with a black woman and then suddenly you join the KKK??? Like that is a crappy set up for a romance in my opinion.
I would have forgone the southern accent because her Kentucky accent wasn't convincing to me.
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I can see how this book had great potential, but between underdeveloped characters and story-lines, and sub-par narration, this audiobook had a difficult time holding my attention. The writing didn't flow smoothly and seemed to be rushed in some areas, like how the main characters hated each other, and then all of a sudden were so attracted that they couldn't keep their hands off each other. The narrator had a high pitched voice for some characters that was very annoying and then the portrait of the male characters was equally annoying to the point of distraction. Overall, I think the story has potential, and the narration might have helped if performed by another narrator, but instead it hurt the story's flow.
I read the book before listening to the audio and I have to the audio version was very entertaining. Teal and Trent's personalities clashed from the moment they met, only to find out later that they were more alike than different. This led to a a fiery passion between the two of them that became harder to ignore the closer they became.
My favorite scene was when Trent and Teal could no longer deny the chemistry that was sizzling between them.
I enjoyed the narrator, although sometimes I think her performance of Logan and Trent was a little to overacting as far as the southern accent.went.
