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
It's been three months since Bleu ran from Sin and, for every day she's been missing him, he's been hurting too and hunting for her - now he's lurking hidden in the shadows watching Bleu, missing her and his need to hold her is growing. But he has to step into the light now and claim back what's his because his Uncle is coming for revenge on Bleu and Sin just can't and won't let that happen. Bleu is heartsick - her Dad is reaching the end of his battle with Cancer and the Cancer has sadly won and she's also full of regrets over having had to leave Sin - the only man she'll ever love. She's trying to be positive but when an old flame reappears in her life she knows that's not going to happen any time soon..... which is just as well because she gets the shock of her life after she says sorry not going to happen and goodnight to her old flame.... because lying in wait is Sin.... as sexy and handsome as ever despite the anger that's oozing from him.
They argue, toss verbal daggers at each other and tension rises but that only fuels the sexual chemistry between them and it's not long before they're confessing their undying love and kissing. Sin has a plan and a proposition for Bleu but the clock's ticking and their escape time is slipping away and so too is her Dad's life which has become critical however Bleu has no intentions of walking away. So Sin, the kind, thoughtful and loving man that he is, is left with no choice.... he'll stay and get to know Bleu's family - but there's a shocking request asked of him which will end in tears.
When the couple eventually return to Scotland (and The Fellowship) not everyone is pleased to welcome Bleu back, his Uncle is still scheming and is determined to destroy Bleu, she is consumed once again with finding out who murdered her Mother and a health scare causes some serious discussions, decisions and plans have to be made. All these topics cause angst, turmoil, grief and heartache.... but nothing like the retribution that's about to come too close when a rival gang's action leaves one Hell of a Cliffhanger ending. Book 3 here I come.
There's sex, romance, drama, tears, bloodshed and death in this one but there's also some celebrations too (no spoilers) so another entertaining and enjoyable listen. Dual POV's but once again the narration, IMO, let this book down big time because neither narrator did the opposite sex's voice well which is something I had to get passed.
Worth a credit? Oh YES, it packs a lot of events in, there's action, drama, sex and romance and the third book is calling my name so I'm off to discover who the murderer is, how Sin and Bleu are going to get out of their current dangerous and very different situations, what other trouble the Uncle is about to stir up, how is this talented Author going to wrap the story up in a HEA ending..... and I'm sure there will be much much more.
Narrations are lackluster, dry storytelling.
The novel was decent, though boring at times. Until the last five chapter, when things got interesting. I hope the next story is the best.
The male narrator speaks with an English accent.
When he speaks as Sin, he uses a Scottish accent.
When he speaks as Bleu, he uses an innocent southern belle accent.
When the female narator talked, she uses a generic female voice.
When she talks as Bleu, she sounds pretty much the same.
When she talks as Sin, she uses a Scottish accent.
It's constant battle of wait when did I start listening to Scarlet Ohara.
Enjoyed the book but the narrators nearly killed it.
Eight year old Stella Bleu Lawrence is the sole survivor after some Scottish thugs broke into their house attacking her, her mother and her dog.
She remembers bits and pieces of that violent night and now she has dedicated her life to avenging the attack. Her adopted father, an FBI helped fake the death of that eight year old girl and in her place was a new-being Bleu MacAllister. While normal 12 year olds played with friends, Blue trained with her father to be think and behave as an assassin.
At age 24, Bleu is ready to infiltrate the organization known as The Fellowship and take out the monster that has haunted her, their leader Thayne Breckenridge. With the help of her father, Blue has both law enforcement and FBI training.
Obviously this isn’t unique plotline nor can I pretend the ending wasn’t anticipated. However, I really enjoyed it. The writing had the right amount of tension, uncertainty and romance. I figured out almost immediately the villain’s motive, but I was pleasantly surprised by Sinclair. I appreciate that the author didn’t make sex the focal point of the story. So the romance really took front and center with Sin and his “Bonnie Bleu”. For a cold hearted killer, he was remarkably flexible, fair and forgiving. I don’t know how great of a mafia leader he would make because he’s kind of a nice guy underneath it all. His reaction to Bleu after discovering who she was spoke volumes of his character and what he felt for her. It showed the passion and inner struggle that made this story compelling.
The story ended on a predictable cliff hanger and I have already begun book 2.
The narrator was okay, but his female voice took some getting used to.
