First, I don't know if it was the download or what but I had to change playing speeds with each narrative. The female at .75 and male at 1.0 once I did this the narration was great. Otherwise the female sounded rushed or the male sounded slow idk why. Ok now to the book.

Now please people remember this is a dark romance and fiction. There is some low level violence against our h by our H in the beginning before feelings get thrown in. If it's not your thing then I would move on to another book. Me I like escaping into all sorts of stories.

Our H Peter is dead inside has been for years and is on a personal mission to even a score. That is where he comes across our h. She was only supposed to be collateral damage but ended up being something much much more.

I am on pins and needles for the second book.

I don't know I haven't even finished the book. I couldn't suffer through the narrator Nikola is Russian right? But narrator is giving him the most horrible French accent. I think I'd like the book better if I just read it.

But Hart has sacrificed much to keep his brothers safe, first from their brutal father, and then from the world. He's also suffered loss: his wife, his infant son, and the woman he loved with all his heart, though he realized it too late.

Though Ian McKenzie will always be my favorite out of all the brothers I did enjoy Hart's story. We see that behind all the bluster stern looks harsh words that Hart has a soft side. We see all the turmoil that he went through to protect all that he loved. At the very very end of the book they try to explain Harts darker likes and wants and I think that they did so in a very gentle way according to the fact that this is a period book. Though for some of us who like a lot of steam and naughtiness perhaps a little bit more would've been wanted.

I really like these books. The story is great, angsty. I love an alpha male but it's the third narrator and that just throws me off. The whole point of audio to me is having the narrator bring the story to life. And I like getting used to my H & h voices or sounds. And it drives me nutz when there are different narrators because they each read differently and put different inflections on words. I would much rather read the trilogy then listen to 3 different people read the 3 separate books.

I really like how the story is progressing. I like the plot twists. I don't however like this narrator they changed it from the first and she just didn't seem to express in my opinion what the characters were saying correctly. For example the words would be having the characters talking reluctantly yet her voice was almost excited sounding. I want to see who this mysterious K is so I'll get third book but I really hope they changed the narrator

I just love T.Gilbert. She really brings stories to life. I enjoyed the story very much. But and I hate to say it but it almost has a twilight feel to it only a lot steamier. Ethan is drawn to Sara he doesn't know why can't stay away. Has to have her be with her. You get where I'm going. But it was still an enjoyable story and tavia really makes awesome to listen to.

Ethan Frost is everything a woman could want in a man. He's rich, gorgeous, powerful, and one of the most eligible bachelors in the world. But that's not why I'm with him. I love Ethan for all the things no one else gets to see: his innate kindness, his reckless spontaneity, his unwavering determination to use his brilliance for good. I love the way he looks at me, the way he touches me, the way he makes me forget the wreckage of my past and the twisted fear that still lives inside me.

I was definitely not expecting these twists and turns that the author threw at us wow I was floored. It has me hooked as to what will happen. Frost's possessiveness comes out more in this book which I love. I knew he was an closet Alpha in the first book. Glad to see he is no longer hiding it.

Ethan Frost is a visionary, a genius, every woman's deepest, darkest fantasy- e ven mine. And, somehow, I am his. He stole into my life like a dream. He turned my reality upside down and made my every desire come true - especially those I never knew I had. He demanded everything I had to give and gave me everything of himself in return. But dreams don't last forever, and ours is no exception - because my nightmares are darker and my wounds deeper than I could ever reveal.

The narrator really brought this book to life and wow it was an incredible book but the emotion she put in it was just draw dropping good. The heroine is strong-willed she's determined to move on make it on her own which is exactly what I love she's also just you know got that soft spot too. Mr. Frost I think is like a closet alpha male which I absolutely love he gets his way without being overly domineering. My only complaint about the book was that I may be the only one that got confused to whether the past ex-boyfriend's name was either Brandon or Chad because they kept going back and forth I will definitely be getting book two

This book definitely kept my attention it was very interesting with the twist and the turns some where predictable some not so much the tension was great. I love the barrage of characters. None were annoying to me I love the narration bringing each of those characters to life and their own unique way. The action drama the love it was all very good I think I will definitely keep this writer on my list as one to look for.
