Publisher's Summary

Levin Crowdley is engaged to the man of her dreams, or so she thought. That is, until a stranger appears on her doorstep to suggest Alec, her adoring fiancé, is anything but. 

No one has ever left Alec. More precisely; no one has ever left Alec and lived to tell about it. 

Levin's life is now about survival, a game of cat and mouse as Alec pursues her. 

And the second he catches her, he’s never letting go. ’Til death do them part.

Great Psychological Thriller

This was my first Marin Montgomery's book and won't be the last! Somehow, this story reminds me Sleeping with the enemy, a story I had absolutely loved! This story is a Psychological Thriller. The story is fast-paced, intriguing and captivating. The length is perfect! Enough to well developed the plot, without stretching the story unnecessarily. The storyline is suspenseful. Levin's story is heartbreaking and scaring. Alec has a narcissistic personality disorder. He is a control freak, psychopath, and a killer. The survival game between them is breathtaking! The narration is so well done! I like Wally Schrass's voice. He is a great storyteller. He has a great voice, well paced, with a great range of voices. I really enjoyed my listening. I'm looking forward for more books written by this author and more audiobooks read by this narrator. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Left me wanting more

Relationships needed more depth. Plot was rushed. The swiftness of the story didn't bode well overall. I enjoyed the snarkiness of the lead male, as well as the narrator. But overall, glad it was over.

Good and Suspenseful

I really enjoyed this book As someone else said, it does remind me of the movie “sleeping with the enemy” but that was also a good movie! Highly recommend.

Not a bad thriller.

Levin is in an emotionally abusive controlling relationship with Alec her fiancé. It opens up with Levin preparing to leave him discreetly and throughout the book there are a few flashbacks to explain the reasoning for her decision to leave. The man she loves may be a killer. The narration is well done and it is a character POV per chapter, one from Levin’s perspective and the next Alec. It definitely held my attention and I whipped thru it quite quickly. Definitely a good cat and mouse tale with a twist here and there. I look forward to more by this author and narrator.

Thriller

This book is more for adults due to the situation the characters find themselves in and the author is not scared to use profanity or crude language. This actually gives you a picture of what the main male character is like.
However, I found it is not for me. I liked the description and I knew there was going to be profanity but I found it hard to listen too.
This is a personal opinion and others might disagree with me and love it. There is nothing wrong with the plot, it is just not for me.
If you don't mind significant amount of profanity and love thrillers then this book is for you.

pretty good

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, this was a great psychological thriller about an obsessed ex. It reminded me of that movie Single White Female but with roles reversed and a lot more cat and mouse action. The narration is done well but I think it would have been a bit more impactful if it was a narrated by a female. If you want a well done thriller, this would still be a good choice.

Engaging and a page turner

It's a "page turner" I know there are no actual pages but the story kept me engage the whole way through. It's not a complicated read whatsoever. But what is there is read that is brisk and fast paced. I was also a scary read and it kept me up at night.

Great Read

Because You're Mine was another great read by Marin Montgomery. Levin decides to leave her fiancé when he murders her best friend. Unfortunately for her Alec will not allow her to get away that easily. He stops at nothing to have Levin in his grasp again. I loved this book by Marin Montgomery and can't wait to read more by the author.

Decent storyline, good narration

This was a fantastic thriller. I seriously was addicted to the back and forth POV between Levin and Alec. Listening to her fleeing thoughts and his heavily narcissistic thoughts was enthralling! I removed two stars on the storyline relating to two things… one is the relationship with Jake. While I get the reasoning behind it. It just felt like such an odd situation and just didn’t seem natural. The other item was it just seemed like there was a few items that I wanted more information on. However, these things didn’t make the story unenjoyable. Really, it’s me being a bit nit-picky and wanted a deeper layer added to the story. Personally, I feel there could have been a few hours added to the story to develop the characters and the storyline just a tad more.

I wasn’t bothered in the least by one narrator doing both POVs. Wally Schrass had an enjoyable story-telling narration. Now, this is more like someone reading a story to you than them living the book… does that make sense? I think it’s mainly because it’s difficult to take that first person of Levin coming from a male’s voice. Again, this didn’t really bother me. I liked the story as it was without being super deep. Sometimes it’s nice to go into a story knowing who is doing what to/with who. Overall I’d definitely listen to another Marin Montgomery story!
