Love should burn slow, but with Ezra "Ethic" Okafor it is always fast and fleeting. After an accidental killing affects Alani, the woman he loves, she thinks he's a monster. Separated by tragedy, the pair endure a loss like nothing they have ever felt, and their connection is impossible to repair. Ethic is reduced to misery and raising his children alone once again. With Morgan in the throes of a passionate love affair and Bella in need of guidance that he can't provide, Ethic is in turmoil. He's failing as a man, and the fingerprint he is leaving on the world is a bloody one.

Escaping from a madman should have been the end of her nightmare. Instead it was only the beginning...Lizzy Gardner was just seventeen when she was kidnapped by the psychopath known as Spiderman, a serial killer terrorizing her California hometown. Imprisoned and tormented for months, Lizzy narrowly escaped with her life and Spiderman vanished without a trace. But if she thought he would forget her, she was dead wrong.

Ethic has power, but love has always been evasive. After ordering the hit that mistakenly killed the love of his life, Ethic is haunted with guilt and refuses to love again. Focused on being a better man and keeping his family safe, he is raising three children, one of which is a defiant teenage girl, Morgan. No matter how hard he tries to keep Morgan away from the streets, she is determined to defy him. When Morgan finds herself in a vulnerable position, Ethic is pulled back into the deadly game where he was once king.

Let me first say that I usually love this author but she slipped up with this sequel. In book 1 (Moth to a flame) Mo was an outgoing, talking, hearing able little girl. But, this book starts with Mo being a deaf mute, and says she's been that way since birth. How is That? If she wasn't in book 1? Also there is no mention on how, when, why Ethic moved to Flint. Story just starts out with him living there. Was a lot of unexplained differences from where Moth to a flame ended.
The narrator did a good job with voice changes and giving each character there own flare BUT, the pauses were way to long and way to many. It was so annoying and frustrated, so many times I kept looking at my phone to see if I paused the book or something (That's how long the pauses were after every 3 or 4 sentences.)
Now that ALL the negative I feel is spelled out, let me say the positive.
The storyline is good, kept me interested and wanting to see what happens next. From trifling fake friends to hard core gangsters having a soft side, this book touches bases with them all. I was laughing at times and crying at times. If you don't get caught up with facts from book 1 not adding up in this book, and you get passed the annoying pauses so often and long, this book will be a great listen in my opinion.
Can't wait for book 3....but PLEASE Mrs. Antoinette don't change up things with the characters that weren't in this book. And please let the narrator not pause SO Much and SO LONG in Ethic 2.

I don't usually take time for reviews but, this needed it! Nikki Sex has a way with touching the most unwanted topics to talk about and turning it into a topic that once opened, no one wants to stop! Child abuse in ANY form is despicable however, sexual abuse is so tabu that every one makes it a crime to talk about. therefore children of sexual abuse turn out to be adults of sexual abuse with so many mental problems that they are labeled crazy or mean.
This book really shows how after opening up and confronting what happened or is happening, that a new beginning can happen and is possible.
Now let me say that this book is not for the faint of hearts, some parts are hard to listen to (weather or not you have been a victim of child abuse) but it gives great understanding as to why it has been so easy for prediters to get away with it for SOOOO long!
There are some very detailed sex scenes (between consenting adults) that will make you tingle and seek out you significant other...lol. And some scenes that will make you cringe and maybe cry. No matter how you look at it, you WILL end this book with a lot of thoughts.
I do recommend this book to all ESPECIALLY those studying criminal law or counseling or psychiatry.

This is not a romance. This is not a pat little ending about Jonathan and I riding off into the sunset. I knew I was never destined for that, but no one warned me about the pain. No one told me about the hurt. No one told me what I'd risk for him.

I am an avid audio books listener and have hundreds of books in my library. I rarely if ever leave a review but after this series, I must! I have never felt so connected with characters in any book as I have with these. Through this read (listen) I laughed, cried and felt like I was right in the moment. This series is not so extra with gory details of the sex scenes so it made it even better of a listen. And the narrator with GREAT!

No connections. Play it safe. These were the rules Ivey lived her life by. Until she hit Mustang, Colorado, a perfectly imperfect town where the citizens were welcoming, and one of them included the tall, beautiful, macho-man rancher cowboy Grayson Cody. On the run for a decade, Ivey knew she was supposed to play it safe. But she was tired of being on the run. She wanted normal. She wanted real. She wanted a home. And she wanted Grayson Cody. And Grayson Cody wanted Ivey.

keep my interest from beginning to end! Love the characters, in this book, I hate reading/Listening to a book where every person has no financial hardships and everything is just peaches , Not with Kristen Ashley's, they seem to know hardships and struggle for what the have! It just makes it more easy to relate to the characters when life seems to be real and not all millionaire living!

All I want to say is.....I am SO proud of these 3 ladies and their story is only proof that God prevails over the devil, it may take 11 years but no matter God comes thru!
Also, As a mother of bia logical and an adopted child, I understand why the adopted parents do not want to disrupt Joey's life, however after ALL that Michelle endured and the only thing that keep her going was thoughts of seeing her son again, I would think that the adopted parents would at the least, let her see her son!! they do not have to reveal who she is to him, just that she's a family friend!
