When you make an enemy of a man like Vitaly Karahalios, there is nowhere on Earth you can go to escape his wrath. He'll find you. He found me; he found Roth. He found Layla.
He found us, and now the unthinkable has happened. Someone I love has been kidnapped.
This isn't a fairy tale.
Not everyone will get a happily ever after.
Sometimes we can't just walk away from the past.
Love doesn't always save the day.
The beast won't always get his beauty.
But maybe, just maybe, we can get our happy ending.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
The story picks up where Beta left off.... with Kyrie, Roth, Harris (the Bodyguard) and Layla (the best friend) sailing around the world on the super-yacht Eliza and they're desperately trying to outsmart the ruthless Crime Lord Vitaly in his quest for savage retribution. I was happy I got to hear more about Kyrie and Roth and their eventually HEA which this book clearly delivered however this is primarily about Harris and Layla because Layla ends up being collateral damage in Vitaly's deadly game of revenge.
Jasinda Wilder packs so much drama and nail-biting action into this listen which starts off at the end of the world... quite literally with a very frustrated Layla who's going stir crazy after 8 weeks on board ship and she's going to get cabin fever if she doesn't get off soon and.... erm 'interact' with others. But be careful what you wish for girl because Layla's life suddenly takes a terror filled and frightening turn when Vitaly's thugs catch up with them and she becomes a frightened pawn as she's manhandled, fondled and threatened back to an eagerly waiting Vitaly. And the only man that can save her is Harris but the chances of that are slim because just they don't get on, disagree at every turn and throw vicious looks at each other..... but still she prays over and over again "Harris is coming, Harris is coming".
Apart from the gripping action and chilling suspense Jasinda has created a strong, sassy and fiercely independent heroine in Layla who's got a wicked sense of humor and a determined streak that she'll need to enable her to fight for her life when the time comes with the help of her close friend Mr. Papermate who she's become intimately acquainted with!!! And Harris is a super-sexy, super-hot and super-Alpha hero who is more than capable of single-handedly rescuing his damsel in distress.... even though she's no meek and mild timid virgin. Thrills, chills, intense drama, exhilarating car chases, speeding bullets, kidnapping, danger, thugs with machine guns, witty banter, humor, passion, a push/pull romance and lots and lots of hot sex because this woman knows how to write about broody sexy men with insaciable libido's, hungry sexual appetites and the stamina to back it up!!
Worth a credit? This story is really in two parts so there's four POV's, it's an exciting third part and the conclusion of a trilogy, great narration, awesome characters, insanely hot with maybe a little too many sex scenes (never thought I'd say it) and a storyline that'll leave you breathless. Jasinda has delivered yet another amazing book which was definitely creditworthy.
I thoroughly enjoyed this series and know I will be listening again. This story had it all, suspense, intrigue, smoky sex scenes, twists and turns, and a wonderful set of characters. I highly recommend this series and look forward to more from Jasinda Wilder!
I love Jasinda's books when she use uses male AND female narrators
The action and hot love scenes
If she wasn't reading all the male parts
I wish they would stop using women to read the male parts. It makes it very hard to picture a sexy , hot, gorgeous male when a woman voice is used. It really hurts the concept of what the author is trying to put across to the reader. I try not to purchase a book with only one narrator.
Loved the content of the book. Great story. Loved the narrator. Made me laugh though, she doesn't know how to pronounce gyro or Livonia. But I guess being from the Mitten gives me an advantage.
I tend to listen on my way home from work. It makes the drive home through traffic something I don't mind. I found myself this time excited sitting in traffic since it meant I was able to get more of the story in before I got home. After the first two books and then starting Omega, I thought this was going to be a "lather, rinse, repeat..." I was glad that I was proven wrong. I very much enjoyed how the author thrusts these secondary characters from the first two books into the spotlight, giving you a different perspective. It was a welcome change of pace.
valentine has no voice in this book why?he was in 1/2 but not in this one. this spoils it for me can't imagine why he would not be here shame
