Thirty days. That's all Adam Steinbeck demands of his wife. Thirty days in a remote cottage, doing everything he demands. After that, he'll sign her divorce papers and give her their company. That's how long he has to rediscover the man he once was. The dominant master he hid when he fell in love with her five years before.

Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, you can skip this book and wait for the final book. Not worth the year and a half wait.

What could Sylvia Day have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It was extremely slow. For what we had to wait it was so boring. The other books were so much better.

Which scene was your favorite?

There wasn't one.

Was Captivated by You worth the listening time?

No

For most of my life, I never imagined I’d get married. But Kate did the impossible: she changed me. I think we can all agree I was pretty frigging awesome before, but now I’m even better. The road to this day wasn’t all rainbows and boners. There were mistakes and misunderstandings worthy of a Greek tragedy. But Kate and I made it through with our inexhaustible lust, boundless admiration, and everlasting love for one another intact.

What disappointed you about Tied?

There was no real story. The other books have been great but this one was a total waste of time. The only reason I did not stop listening was because I thought it would get better but never did.

Has Tied turned you off from other books in this genre?

Possibly

Have you listened to any of Sebastian York’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He is fantastic. It's not his fault. Blame the author.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Nope
