shame on the editor... "this man"

I finished this book because of the story. I cannot bring myself to continue with the next book however. The OVER use of "this man" is like nails on a chalkboard.

Repetitive much

This book drove me nuts, you can only talk about your past & your control blah blah so many times I had to fast forward a couple
Of times just not to hear it again. I only finished it because I had to know how this
indecisive story and ends.

Good

I enjoyed the story but I found the protagonist irritated with her constant repetition of her doubts and insecurities. The plot of the story itself was interesting, the ending was a bit of a surprise for sure. And I although I like the narrator, I feel she tends to keep the same monotone through all of her reading. She has a great sexy and seductive voice, but it does not very with everything that is happening in the book. It is still a good read.

One of my new favorite series so far

Lisa has always been able to write Beautiful stories and always pick amazing narrators to tell her story!

But this one I couldn’t stop listening to I finished it in just one night and can’t wait for the next two books! Worth the credit to listen but warning cliffhanger but Lisa is always good at making you want more and it’s always worth the wait!

Read her other book instead...

The premise and beginning of this book are great but it goes downhill fast. I am not sure why, she had plenty of story, thrill and romance to use from the plot concept to make this an amazing trilogy, it makes me angry that she didn't use any of it. It's a watered down version of her earlier series, The Secret Life of Amy Benson, which is an amazing trilogy that I would recomend on it's own (it's on my read once a year list) and a million times better than this.

This is a story about a woman and her brother who have grown up in hiding, keeping their family history a secret, they work and live next to eachother above their store. All that makes it sound like they'd be close, but her brother disappears with no contact and she thinks he's in trouble and is desperate to find him in the beginning of the book, she is tracking people down, making a plan and thinking about hiring a detective. Then all of a sudden she just decides he is off tresure hunting and ignoring her (and all of his clients for WEEKS?) and isn't in danger anymore and goes out of town for a weekend vacation with a guy she has barely talked to... HUH???


Spolier

She is desperate to get to an auction of a violin bc her brother got a letter stating it might contain the secret formula to make their family's violins right before he disappears. She thinks he might be tracking it down or have drawn attention from the wrong people and was tricked, possibly kidnapped. She does all she can to get into this auction, but upon finding out the violin is a fake a little before the auction, she does not even bother looking through the people who attend it to see if her brother is there. She does not even stay for the auction to see who bids or who wins but leaves early with a guy who has been hot and cold this whole book. She then goes out of town with him instead of hiring a private detective to help find her brother like she had planned.

Good performance

Aria and Gio Alard had to keep their identity to themselves. Their ancestor created the formula for making the famous Stradivarius violin. Each violin was unique and now worth a fortune. But the cherry on top would be the secret formula, the pinnacle to anyone who found it. They have no idea what happened to their father but presumed him dead. Fleeing Italy with their mother, she warned them before her death, never pursue music, and to leave the Stradivarius formula alone or risk certain death. Aria and Gio have settled in New York and are now antique collectors. Gio goes missing, presumably chasing the formula. Aria finds a note from a mystery woman that leads her to the prestige auction house, called Riptide. Riptide had a secret violin up for auction. But not just any violin, presumable they had a Stradivarius. Aria needed an invite to follow the bread crumbs that would lead her to her brother and the formula. And in turn, she meets the rocker violinist, Kace August. The chemistry ignites and the attraction grows. But was there more to Kace than Aria knows? Especially since the man owns three Stradivarius violins. Aria can't help wonder if Kace was only after the formula. And with a certain man warning her at every turn, she needs to take heed that not all was as it seemed. Can she find her brother? Can she find the formula and can she trust Kace? The story grips you from the very beginning. Secondary characters come into play, but also leave you wondering who Aria can trust? The story is complex with twists and turns and Ms Jones has left us on a cliffhanger that leaves us begging for more. Well performed and easy to listen to

Ready for the rest of the story

This story is romantic with a nice edge of suspense that Lisa Renee Jones writes so well. The cliffhanger left me ready to get the next book.
