This is a really good story with all the right ingredients. Love, sex, tragedy and drama. Perfect hero with a heroine that is not the typical "I'm not good enough" attitude. While she has personal fears they do not prevent the couple from being together. Good story and performance that I will definitely listen to again.
When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!
This story has been done in so many ways over the past few years. I'm tired of the same old same old, overly wealthy man that has a bad history, young girl that is in experienced and naive. Gag.....
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
I'm not a fan of the 'instant' in a romance book and, as the mixed up and still grieving Allison accidentally meets a handsome, kind, thoughtful and caring Damien it's instant attraction, followed closely by lust, sex and love which was all very touching and cute. But as the story develops so too does the mystery, suspense, intrigue and danger. Damien is haunted by an unresolved tragic event in his past which makes him cold, emotionless and snappy to others but with Allison it comes out as possessive and an over-the-top caring for her happiness and welfare and later we're given the heartbreaking reason why he's so protective over her.
At first the Heroine comes across as a little too young, sickly sweet and naive however the unfolding psychological drama (together with a six-pack wielding, handsome, rich, Alpha Hero) makes up for it. A mixed bag of secondary characters and somewhere in amongst them is a delusional murderer, the sex scenes were romantic, there was a lot of character and plot development and the love story was sometimes challenged but remained sweet.
However, although the romance didn't have a cliffhanger.... the Epilogue certainly did which suggests things aren't going to be the HEA for the H/H after all. Narration was ok but, IMHO, Allison's voice sounded a bit too young.
Worth a credit? It was a lukewarm listen to begin with but the romance, plot twists, questions and action soon kicked in so YES creditworthy and I need to know just who the villain in the story is so I guess I'll be using another credit to find out.
I just have the audio version
Because of all his money, he is so loveable and down to earth, a caring and Loving person and very generous to Alley
Don't understand that ??????
yes, but I listened to it in two sittings
Be sure to get all three series
luckily I am driving while listening to my audio books or I would have said totally wasted my time. Saw too many similarities story line as the 50 shades books.
will listen to the other 2 in the series and hope for better.
the narrators had no emotion put nothing into this to enhance the story. Mickey and Minnie would have done a better job.
Oh wow I'm on the edge of my seat fantastic read. gripping,romance and sassy exciting read.
My only criticism would be I finish it too quickly, I wanted more!... loved it.
"a very good read and addictive"
enjoyed this love story. Iv read many a book and it was nice not to have to hear the VERY worst of the vulgar words that are normally used in these type of book. looking forward to book 2
