Two years ago, everything changed for the remaining members of the Seattle rock band Tempest. Two years is a long time. Too long to keep on remembering. Not nearly long enough to forget. In trouble with nowhere else to go, songstress Lace Lowell seeks refuge with the band during their stop in New York City. It's a risky move for her because they are both there, two impossibly good looking men whose lives are inseparably entwined with hers.

This is the first audio I've listened to with sound effects. I found in places it added to the story,but sometimes I wish they'd left them out. Story wise I was happy to see the author give Lacy the ability to become her own person. And Brian's narrator has that low sexy growl down to a science..

Maxwell Knight was dangerously good looking, seductively charming, and definitely trouble. He was everything Jeanella Mefferd did not need now. Fresh out of college, life was predictable and comfortable for Jeanella. She had the strength of her friends and the security of her job, and she was dating a reliable man; it was all smooth sailing. That was until one night, when she met someone who made her feel things she'd never felt before--dangerous, heart pounding, breathless heat.

Ok, but not outstanding

Overall

Reviewed: 06-23-18

The story was pretty much like every other romance book, but not as well written as I would have hoped. It felt like the author was lecturing on the ways of life instead of showing us what life was like. Sometimes a really skilled narrator can save stories like this through their performance, but this narrator didn't have the skill. All in in all this was an average book.

I really hate when now end like the first one ... In the middle of the story. Most of the time I refuse to purchase the next book, thinking it was done that way simply for sales. This time I broke my rule and was happy i did. I liked the way the Jake character was able to rea!use his feelings especially being a very macho character.. And this narrator was perfect. I hope to find more books by him.

This is an incredible book. I loved the story through all its turmoil, the description of the suffering that people endured pulled at my emotions. However, about half way through I found myself thinking that a good editor could have improved and shortened this saga by about 10 hours.
