Ren didn't know the meaning of love until he took Della for his own. To begin with, he hated her, but as the months bled into years, he learned the opposite of hate, dedicating his life to giving her everything. Every sacrifice, every gift, he gave wholeheartedly. But then love turned to lust and ruined everything.

I'm not normally a fan of duet narrations, but these two were fantastic. I felt every emotion with them and they brought life to Pepper's words. It'll take me awhile to get over this book!

When Agent Mercedes Ramirez finds an abused young boy on her porch, covered in blood and clutching a teddy bear, she has no idea that this is just the beginning. He tells her a chilling tale: an angel killed his parents and then brought him here so Mercedes could keep him safe. His parents weren’t just murdered. It was a slaughter - a rage kill like no one on the Crimes Against Children team had seen before. But they’re going to see it again. An avenging angel is meting out savage justice, and she’s far from through.

I really enjoyed this one. I liked the emphasis of overcoming your childhood vs. perpetuating the cycle. I would have liked to know a bit more about the children, but maybe that will show up in the next book.

Absolutely loved the story! The chemistry between Ava and Jackson was great and hearing the words cone to life was even better. The narrator played a wonderful Jackson, but had a harder time with female voices. Female voices were not as distinct, missing a softer lilt. The... other...voices were well done.

The world might think billionaire Xavier Gaines has it all, but he's got a big problem. His successful software company is about to sign a government contract that'll land him smack in the glare of the public limelight, and his lifelong battle with social anxiety has marked him as a cold, uncaring bastard in the eyes of the press. To dispel the unflattering image, he needs help, and there's only one person he trusts with the job -- Peyton Smoke.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No, I truly enjoyed the story itself. I like the way Xavier and Payton developed their relationship and really supported the each other's quirks. It's such a small thing, but the use of the word "honey" was refreshing. I feel like I hear the same endearments repeated in book after book after book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kory Getman’s performances?

Unfortunately, no. The narration was entirely too flat, coupled with mispronunciations and over pronunciations. There was also an odd editing error in the middle.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Sure! In typical Kelly fashion, she has built up the minor characters to be engaging as well. I'd love to see them depicted on the screen.

Any additional comments?

I would love to read a follow-up book, but will probably read rather than listen in order to correct more deeply with the characters.

If you could sum up The FREE 3-Chapter Sampler of Consequences in three words, what would they be?

A great start!

What aspect of Romy Nordlinger’s performance would you have changed?

The book needs a stronger male voice. Anthony Rawlings is a strong, alpha male and I had a hard time with Romy's portrayal of him.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend the book (and have, to many people!) and I found this to be a nice complement to it. I'm not sure I would enjoy the book as much if this was my first introduction to it.

The entire series was recommended to me, so I thought I would at least try the first book. It was amazing! I didn't want to hit pause/stop and listened every chance I had.

Going to download the second book now!
