Emerson just made her dream come true as a professional cheerleader for her favorite pro football team. But even though the plus-size athlete is breaking down boundaries, she still has to contend with the massive rulebook. Carbs? Nope. Chocolate? Definitely not. Still, Emerson loves her curves, and she'll rock the hell out of this job even if it kills her. Except for one mandate that is easier read than done... No fraternizing with the players.

Libby Reed is over it. Or that’s what she tells herself. She’s lusted after one of New York’s bravest for years, but firefighter Antonio Moretti has doused her interest for the last time. As much as she wants the jerk, they can’t even be in the same room without setting each other off…which might be a problem now that she’s volunteered to help out in his family’s restaurant. Antonio’s been burned before. Now he knows better than to trust a pretty face and follow another pair of long legs into heartbreak. But while Libby might rub him the wrong way, he can’t deny the heat between them.

I've had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones - the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones - all included him. I was 10 years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.

I read this in two days and I absolutely loved it! The characters captured my heart and I was rooting for them til the last page! I completely loves the spiritual aspect of the story regarding lost loved ones as that's something I rarely see in the romance genre! So refreshing and very welcomed!! The last paragraph gave me chills. Thank you for that sweet ending, Heather Wilds! Will definitely recommend!

Fourteen years ago, my life changed forever. My sister disappeared. That day I was selfish. That day I chose myself over her. And that day, I lost everything. Including Nikki Walters. She's the girl I've loved my whole life. She's gorgeous. Caring. Every single thing I've ever wanted but denied myself. She was my sister's best friend, and I destroyed any chance of keeping her. When her safety is threatened, I have a second chance to do the right thing. But as soon as she moves in, I want her in all the wrong ways. All it takes is a brush of her hand, and I'm losing all control.

I did not care for this storyline. So many times I'm thinking 'did she really just say that?' or 'oh please?!' especially the last hour or so. I love these two narrators, however, and will continue to look for audiobooks with their narrations.

I received this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review. I listen to A LOT of audiobooks and this one was just okay for me. I liked it, but I didn't love it. Maybe it was the suspense of the mystery, but it felt slow and just dragging on to get to the bottom of the mystery. I was bored in all the self-dialogue of Maddy's thoughts on maybe this and maybe that, and what about this, why oh why.... etc, etc.I felt like this could have been an 8 or 9 hour story instead of an over 13 hour listen. The romance was there, but I think I wanted more, as that's the genre I listen to most. The narrator did a good job. I wasn't crazy about her voice for the male characters, but overall I enjoyed her. Thank you Kellet Ernst for the free code.
