Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The story is told by many points of view and at first you're a bit confused but once you keep listening it all comes together. It's suspenseful and the ending is so surprising.

In Drake's shadowy world, his enemies would exploit any weakness he had in order to bring him to his knees, and so he's never allowed himself to care about anyone...never exhibited any vulnerability, and it made him a force to be reckoned with. Until Evangeline - his angel. A woman who slipped past his defenses like no one had ever managed. She was his to protect and ultimately, to do that, he had to do the unthinkable and drive the only good thing in his world away.

This book drags on and on and on about nothing. I want to reach into my ear buds and choke both the girl and the guy. I read through half and I just couldn't take it anymore. I'm not even going to request a return as I'm ashamed at myself for not heeding the reviews. Don't get me wrong I love MB but this book should never have been written. Read the first but don't bother purchasing the the 2nd.

When four classmates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they're broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their center of gravity.

Great Series but they changed the narrator in book 6 and ruined the characters personalities. The new narrator isn't bad but different which took a bit to get used to.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

This book is so boring and confusing. I'm glad I didn't download the whole series. I'm just upset that I spent 1 credit on it.
