We were 16 the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched. I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering. Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma. Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact. Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets. She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her. I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains: She’s mine.

Spoiler - Rape! I can't believe no one warned me. It's hardly a spoiler because it happens about 10 minutes into the book. It's more than upsetting. If you listen you'll be subjected to the brutal gang rape of a 16 year old girl. The rest of the book deals with the fallout and eventual emotional recovery from the rape. I thought you should be straight up warned.

This is a really bad book. The writing is incredibly juvenile. I was wincing through more than half the book. And Erotica? Ha! This is so far from erotica it's laughable. There were a couple of mentions of the h's 'lady garden' (no really - she said that. More than once. It's supposed to be erotica! Give me a good old p---y or c--t) but thats about as racy as it got. There were scenes that included sex. They were terrible and thankfully short. The quality of the audio was far below par as well. I can think of nothing redeeming about this book except - nice cover art, huh?. Take advantage of the sample listen before buying (if you're still considering doing such a silly thing).

I thought this was a great end to a great series. The conflict was much closer to home than usual which upped the emotional involvement. It took me longer than the others to listen to because I found the conflict unsettling and had to take breaks in the beginning to deal. I do wish we could continue these little visits with my friends but better to end now than watch it go down hill.

They say when you take revenge against another you lose a part of your innocence. But I'm not innocent. I haven't been for a very long time. My innocence was stolen from me. Taken was the life I was supposed to have. The soul I was born with. The ruby heart embedded in a life full of hopes and dreams. Gone. Vanished. I never even had a choice. I mourn that life. Mourn the what-ifs. Until now. I'm ready to take back what was always meant to be mine. But every plan has a fatal flaw. Sometimes it's the heart.

I think that this is probably a good book for many many people but it was far too disturbing for me. I hate the sinking feeling I get in the pit of my stomach when thinking about this book. Rarely do I want to be depressed more than I am naturally.

pretty good. Romance package. This is a test to see if my review win stay after I delete book from library. When I just rate with stars rating disappears when I return, then I have no way of knowing if I've read it before. My memory isn't what it used to be.

Salome knows only one way to live - under Prophet David’s rule. In the commune she calls home, Salome knows nothing of life beyond her strict faith, nor of life beyond the Fence - the fence that cages her, keeps her trapped in an endless cycle of misery. A life she believes she is destined to always lead, until a horrific event sets her free. Fleeing the absolute safety of all she has ever known, Salome is thrust into the world outside, a frightening world full of uncertainty and sin; into the protective arms of a person she believed she would never see again.

Heartless. Ruthless. Stone-cold killer. That's me. I destroy anything in my path to get what I want. Then she showed up. Olivia Bell. She's sweet and innocent and in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now she's mine. My property. I own her. Given to me as a bargaining chip. She's not a part of my plans, but plans change. Her pouty lips and gorgeous curves beg me to break her. Taking her lush, curvy body and ravaging it for all it's worth would be easy, but I want to earn her submission. It's addictive. I want it. I want her.

My name is Emma Knight, and I'm a 24-year-old woman who was moving from Miami to New York to pursue my dream of attending Parsons School of Design. My plan was set in motion. I was packed and already on my way when I met a man and received an email, both of which altered my plans and changed the course of my life.

It's been 12 years since Tru Bennett last saw Jake Wethers, her former best friend and boy she once loved. Jake Wethers, sexy, tattooed, and deliciously bad lead singer, and brains behind The Mighty Storm, one of biggest bands in the world, left Tru with a broken heart when he moved from England to America with his family when they were both 14. Sent to interview Jake for her music column by the magazine she works for, they are both unprepared for the sparks that fly the instant they reconnect.
