The story could have been so much better. I kept waiting for something big to happen but nope. Syd was just an annoying, stupid girl making idiotic decisions for no good reason, overreacting and being dramatic. ugh. Can't believe I listened to the whole thing. 😑

Victoria Vitucci was the only light in my dark world. She's forbidden, but so am I. I'm not free to be with her, but I want her more than anything. My secrets will shatter her. But I underestimated my little Mafioso Princess. There is a reason she is the daughter of the most feared Cosa Nostra godfather. Maybe I will be the one shattered in the end.

Awful. Just awful. I was hoping this book would be better than book 1, but no! It's just as cheesy and predictable. Even worse, the male narrator is HORRIBLE! He tried waaayyyy too hard to sound seductive and breathy and ended up sounding like a tired old man - all while breathing in your ear. Gross! I only made it to the middle of chapter 3 before I shuddered and called it quits. I definitely will NOT be listening to anything else from this author and definitely not from either of these narrators.

I fell hard for the Mafioso at the tender age of 11. This beast of a man who I knew made people disappear - and probably enjoyed every second of it - was also the 16-year-old boy who had picked me up after I'd fallen flat on my face during my dance recital and told me I was the best ballerina he'd ever seen. He's watched over me, protected me like I was the most precious thing in the world to him. And then he sent me away.

The story was very predictable and a bit juvenile for my taste. I downloaded book 2 in the hopes it'll get better but we'll see. The female narrator's voice and tone was kind of annoying and I think didn't go well with the characters.

We fell in love on a beach, got married in paradise, and rode off into the sunset. It should have been perfect, but saying "I do" doesn't guarantee a happily ever after. Two years later, I barely recognize either of us behind the walls we've built. It's time to bring it full circle. Back to a tropical paradise. Back to find out if we can still make this work. I'm not willing to give her up, but to save us, I have to risk everything.

Picture this - I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I'm good and ready this time around. After all, if you're going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops. There’s only one little problem. My college girlfriend isn't the one who shows up when I play my "I'll do anything to win you back" tune. The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore.

Verity Michaels is new to New York City, but even she knows riding in a stolen cab is not a normal way to meet someone. Damn it if that tattoo-covered would-be felon isn't everywhere now, and lighting everything on fire under her skirt. His name is Hudson Fenn, and he's frustratingly impossible to pin down. He works as a bike messenger, but has the manners of a prince - along with a strange tendency toward breaking and entering.

Winter Perri never truly understood love until she met Austin Carlyle - the man who would rock her world to its foundations and give her something to believe in. But the night before they were to be married, the fairytale shattered. Thirteen years later Winter is pulled out of her seclusion only to have a painful past confront her, and when it does, she's left questioning reality, because the impossible is looking back at her with the face of a destroying angel, and piercing eyes in too familiar shades of blue.

What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing. Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I'd be lost if it weren't for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who's slowly finding her way into my cynical heart. I keep reminding myself that I can't fall for someone when we don't have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things.

It took me nearly a week to get to the last chapter and then I just gave up. I already knew what would happen from the second or third chapter. The book was full of so much filler and got repetitive and stale. Honestly, I was bored throughout most of it.
