Publisher's Summary

SCARLETT

He had done it again. Ravaged me. Burned me. Broken me. Given me air, only to leave me gasping, writhing. But then something changed. Something that terrified and excited me both. Something that utterly destroyed me. Something that made me whole again.

DANTE

Our love was cursed from the start. She didn't know it but I did. All she knew was that I'd lied to her, betrayed her. Done unforgivable things. Unavoidable things. Yes, I had broken promises as surely as I had broken her heart. But, just as every war has casualties, and every lie has consequences - every bastard has his reasons.

Just OK

I had trouble connecting with the characters and never felt as if the story was complete in the end. Though I'm a fan of the author, this series wasn't for me but it was ok. The quality narration worked in its favor.

ANOTHER 5-STAR LISTEN!

Seriously, I'm a R.K. Lilley fan for life! There's just something about these books that hits every button for me. This series was perfection--dramatic, over the top, romantic perfection. It's not a fairy tale romance though, it's gritty, very dark, and kind of twisted. The narration was on point and befitting of the characters, also the interplay and history amongst the characters and their relationships was just toxic enough that I just ate up every minute of the story. A definite repeat listen for both books in this series, and highly recommended for those love sick like me out there.

THIS WAR HAD CASUALTIES.... BUT LOVE TRIUMPHED

R. K. Lilley has done it again.... she's blown me away with an absolutely gripping and riveting story of love that's turned toxic... leading to spiteful jibes, witty yet wounding banter and years of regrets, heartache and painful memories. As the story slowly unfolds it introduces you to Scarlett and Dante who superficially hate each other and yet their history's are somehow entwined, their feelings run deep, their chemistry is combustible.... and that sometimes leads them to give in to angry sex. Their pasts are waiting to be told and their futures are waiting to be rewritten.

The chapters dart from present to past and back again giving an insight into like minded childhood friends whose natures were so similar that they formed an unbreakable bond... the world vs Scarlett and Dante. Scarlett was found in a dumpster, lived in a trailer with her alcoholic Grandmother and was dirt poor - whereas Dante comes from Old money, had a Trust Fund and his Mother's high expectations for him were constantly thrust in his face. Opposites in a lot of ways and yet there tempers and attitudes were so alike.

They go from being devoted friends to inseparable lovers with their hearts and futures so tightly entwined that they thought nothing and nobody could break them apart... but they were so naive and so very wrong. As the story flips back to the present you know Dante's broken Scarlett's heart but how and why will remain a mystery until the end. This bitter-sweet heartbreaking and tragic story that slowly unfurls tells a tale of innocence, brutal rape, murder, jealousy, shattered dreams, painful memories, blackmail, treachery, lost years, bitter regrets, soul shattering shocks, twists, drama, angst, manipulation, lies, secrets, selfless unconditional sacrifice and soul deep anguish that cuts deep. However, there's such a sweet backstory, a touching young love and an epic love story amongst the rubble of hate filled years of war, conflict and hostility.

This review is for the entire duet because after book 1 I just couldn't wait to listen to the now available second instalment of Scarlett and Dante's story which was utterly compelling, pulse-poundingly gripping, tearfully tragic, heartachingly beautiful and totally unforgettable. These two characters loved and lost but when the awful unbelievable truth was finally revealed they fought hard, against a vicious vindictive enemy, and eventually got their long awaited second chance to make things right, to forgive, to heal.... and to claim their HEA.

Worth a credit? I'm emotionally exhausted, mind f'd, overwhelmed, overjoyed and grateful to R. K. Lilley for yet another memorable and very creditworthy listen... thank you.

so fantastic, sexy and and fresh!

first the narrators are the bomb! they truly made this story seem so authentic! really, sexy voices.
the story was so great. such a very sexy story, but not dirty. characters had heart-wrenching issues but love overcomes all. but the flaws were realistic of all characters and so refreshingly real and honest that you could identify with a lot, unlike other popular novels. buy it!!

Emotionally intense!
not a dark romance per say...but the emotional abuses to each other were heavy.

One of my favorite series!

The love story began when they were 10 years old & while it is also filled with tragedy, pain, drama, suspense, it is beautifully told & one of my absolute favorites to listen to, by 2 of the best narrators in the business. TRIGGER warning! There are a couple of scenes that contain violence & may be difficult for some readers. If you can handle that, I highly recommend this series!

Great Story with missing gaps

Loved this story but some of the details were skeptical.

Even when the characters were apart Dante still kept tabs on Scarlett n yet somehow he missed the whole 9 months she was pregnant with their baby (especially since it wasn't too long after they broke up)? Dante admitted he knew all the men Scarlett had been with, it seems unlikely that he wouldn't have known at all about the pregnancy.

That aside, I loved the narration and their journey as a whole.

Way too long

Overall the book was ok. It took a very long time to get to the point. It just kind of went on and on. The main characters also need some intense therapy! They were a little too much for me.
