This is a really great start to, I hope, a series. Be forewarned that the ending, while a HEA, doesn't wrap up all issues. I really enjoyed this boo..Show More »k overall, although there are some glaring world building holes. In a nutshell, NYC has experienced a catastrophe and becomes this lawless din of sin and crime. The problem is, apparently the rest of the U.S. is intact but turns a blind eye to NY and let's this happen. Maybe this is explained away in future books. But if you can ignore that, the romance and underlying mystery are quite good. This is an enemies to lovers romance between Cade and Nox. Nox is a vigilante trying to fly below the radar for the sake of his son, Sam. Cade is a high priced prostitute who mistakenly falls into a bigger mystery that changes his life and brings Nox into his life. It is very well written and I look forward to the next installment. The narrator does a great job of bringing these characters to life. Worth a credit.

This story picked..Show More » up immediately where “Who Knows the Storm” ended and continued to make me feel tension and anxiety as the story moved forward. That sense of the unknown and that expectation as I waited to know what came next was intense and thoroughly sucked me in. I was immersed fully into this world and plot. I had to know more, I had to know how things turned out.
I loved that every time I thought the author would reveal all, she introduced another bit of information that threw me off my path and I was yet again in need of more information to figure out the whys and hows of it all. I loved finding out what I did but now I need more!!!! The suspense was killer and it was so engaging that I wanted to skip work and just listen to this all in one sitting!
My only complaint is that once again this story is to be continued. But unlike book 1, this ending felt abrupt. It was not a natural place for this one to end at all and it left me, not feeling like I wanted more, but like I was cheated out of knowing how it ended. Will I pick up the next one, Hell Yeah I will, because this story is awesome. I just wish things had ended at a more natural location.
Jonathan Young was a great narrator for this story. His voices were strong and clear and he really brought each character to life. The intensity of the atmosphere was evident and his reading only served to enhance the good of this book. I would gladly listen to him again.
