Dax Marshall isn't the type of man a woman takes home to meet her parents. He's a business shark who has never let anything as insignificant as caring stop him from taking over a company. Some call him heartless, but he doesn't see the value of caring about anyone or anything until he meets Kenzi. Her happiness becomes his obsession.
Kenzi Barrington has tried to be the person her family needed her to be, but she doesn't want to lie anymore. When she can't hold a dark secret in another day, she turns to the one man she knows is strong enough to hear the truth. What starts as a simple attraction becomes a friendship that changes how they both define love.

I have other Ruth Cardello books and have enjoyed them. This is too heavy on the drama (and although some of the subject matter is intense) , the fact that the family is so focused on a tragedy that many people deal with that they become this dysfunctional is a little overwhelming.
The way the story is written, I don't know that it could have be any better or worse.
I'm not sure, but I don't think I can take this narrator. Unless you are fond of someone talking like an overly breathy Marilyn Monroe, she's not for you.
No. In fact, the narration is so annoying, I'm returning it for my credit. I think for this series , I'll stick to the ebooks.
I found that not only was the narration bad, the story didn't have any real depth. Family members had some bad things happen, but really? To have someone have to be so coddled to for fear that her fragile emotions would break is too much. For gosh sakes, get some counceling
Everyone has had something bad happen to them, but you go on.
Like the first book in this series, the story is good, characters well developed. I just can't take the high pitched, monotone voices of the female characters. Most female narrators do just an ok job with male characters. Ms Rowan is great with male characters. I just can't listen to another minute of Mini Mouse when I'm trying to believe in a strong female lead.
Ruth Cardello is an excellent writer and this is a good story. However, the narrator's version of Kenzi's voice is sometimes that of a ten year old and at others, it sounds like an imitation of Marilyn Monroe in Some Like it Hot. I found that distracting.
