Publisher's Summary

A social experiment (a scary but exciting concept): marry a total stranger, live together for six months, and journal everything.

Feelings. Fights. All of it.

After six months, we each get $50,000 in exchange for our journals, whether we stay married or not. But the goal is to commit to the experience and see if the relationship experts could put together the perfect matches.

I have never been lucky in love. This was my chance to find my soulmate. I couldn't wait to meet the man the experts felt was perfect for me. My hopes were immediately dashed when I saw him at the altar. I married my worst nightmare. Right?

Contains mature themes.

    Love listening to audiobooks, and being swept away by a great story and narrator. It's my therapy, and I need it daily!

    "Not As Intense As The Others In The Series...."

    ….but still an AWESOME story!

    All I can do is ditto all the other positive reviews. I liked Talon because he was a happy confident person who wasn't broken or scared which was a refreshing change. I loved his teasing personality. The only negative for me was, this story's plot wasn't as captivating or as intense as Storm's, Vandal's or Lukas's story but was still well worth the time and credit. Can't want to see what Carian Cole brings to audio next! ….

    Story
    "More than 5 stars and the moon!!"

    Talon is a standalone story in the Ashes & Embers series.

    "Then don't be a star, Talon. Be the moon. Shine above all of them."

    I listened to the audiobook of Talon for a re-read. I already loved the book, but the story really took on a new life, a whole other dimension through some amazing narration.
    Talon is a member of the rock band Ashes & Embers. He is beginning to feel like his life is too shallow and he longs to find his soulmate.
    Asia has been unlucky in relationships and has begun to feel like maybe she just isn't enough.
    They both sign up for a social experiment that attempts to make the perfect match. Marry a stranger that is chosen for you and stay together for 6 months.

    "Marrying you doesn't change who I am."
    "No, but it changes who we are together," I grab her hand to stop her fingers from nervously circling on her leg. "Together, we're supposed to be better."

    This story is beautiful, both heart wrenching and life affirming as it deals with some tough issues. The book is sexy with a swoon worthy rock star Hero and an amazing sweet heroine. It is an emotional story that brought me to tears, but also made me laugh.

    "I love you too, jelly bean. With every one of my f'n' heartbeats."

    Carian Cole has fast become a favorite one-click author and Sean Crisden & Elizabeth Hart are now among my favorite narrators!

    Story
    "Unusual, upbeat rock romance!"

    I read the series and am now making my way through the audible performances. I really enjoyed this unusual aspect of this story. The H/h marry without knowing each other. Their relationship takes a journey that is sometimes humorous, angst ridden and ultimately has you cheering for their happily ever after. Talon is a flawed, but caring husband Asia (I spelled it wrong I know) is dying to be loved but has trust issues. Their journey to love is a fun listen and I think most people would enjoy this light hearted banter!

    Story
    "WOW I loved this book"
    If you could sum up Talon in three words, what would they be?

    Not only was it sexy but the story was great. It made you want to cry in some parts and it makes you oh so happy at the end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The development of the people in the story


    Which character – as performed by Sean Crisden and Elizabeth Hart – was your favorite?

    Talon but I really did not like the voice they used. It took me a few chapters to get into it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could not wait to get back in my car to listen, I even listened to it a few times when I would have been watching TV because I just had to know what happened next.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this story

    "Yes..."

    I have not loved the book this much in a long time this place gets five stars all the way around. Possibly even 10. I love this storyline and how it was put together. I love both of the narrator's the guys female voice is a little questionable but I'm okay with it.

    "another amazing journey that this author takes you"

    I absolutely loved every minute of thid book even when they all thought the notion was crazy in the beginning. I love this family and how they strong for each other in times of need. Its nice to know someone always had your back.

    The relationship these two developed wsd totally unexpected. They are essentially from different world. What happens when an amazing writers places two complete strangers together. Everything of course. This writer has such a penchant for writing these over thetop characters completely lovable. Time to go start Torn now.

    "Wow!"

    This was genuinely a well written story that translated perfectly into audio format. It showed heart it showed passion it showed comedy, which I thoroughly enjoyed. The characters personalities truly shined through and it developed so well throughout the story. This is been a really good story to listen to I listen to this one first instead of listening in the reading order. But now I'm hooked and just purchased the book one
