Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author W Winters comes an emotionally captivating and thrilling, romantic suspense audiobook.   

Her lips tasted like Cabernet and her touch was like fire.  

I was blinded by what she did to me. I so easily fell for something I thought I’d never have.  

I was weak for her and should’ve known better. I should’ve known she could never love a man like me.  

She brought out a side of me that I wish had stayed dead.   

I won’t make the same mistake twice.  

I don’t care how much she begs me.   

I don’t care that I crave her more than anything else.

I Just Couldn’t

The series got worse with every book. The first one was good, the second was so so, this one was pathetic. The only saving grace was the male narrator. I am glad I have Audible Escape so I did mot waste any credits.

Breathless and Wanting MORE

Beyond thankful Breathless, book 3, was out after book 2. That ending left me not just craving more I needed more. My mind was reeling how is this going to end?!? Loyalties are tested and boundaries are pushed to the limit and this story was beautifully written. Willow Winters does it again and again. Such a binge worthy series!! I couldn’t stop listening!! Dark, twisted and sexy as hell!! Carter Cross has my heart!!

Will this ever end!!!

Jacob Morgan is magnificent and another cliffhanger. I want more and for Aria and Carter to get their HEA. Lots of violence, twists, mistrust to make a good story. I can hardly wait for the next book. Jacob is yummy and Willow Winters knows how to keep you wanting more.

fear is something that you will never overcome

when you love someone and you figure someone and that someone is the same person you don't know heads from tails but you do know that they will protect you with everything in their being as you will protect everything within your being to protect them

Finally we get to the battle. she's a fighter!

loooove it. I'm upset that theh do the custom drugs they literally sell on the streets so casually like it's not the drug they're literally pushing on the streets knowing it's highly addictive. That bugs me. otherwise it's on point. love Jacob Morgan's voice!! swooning😍

At Odds

I’m at odds with this series! I can’t help but want to know what happens with each book, but as I listen to each I’m continuously bothered by the story line of their messed up love story. Their to stubborn, they never really say the truth to each other only ever keeping the truth to themselves and narrated to the listeners and I’m beginning to become over this story.

Good story, overdone female performance

If a voice is always dramatic, it becomes overdone and ineffective for times that require drama.

Loved Jacob M. for Carter's narration!

The concept of this story is intriguing but can we talk about the female lead for a minute... (kind of, but not really, spoiler alert..?! rant begin!) - I do like these books tho..! This girl is so annoying and confusing that I had to rate this 4 stars! It's a good book too. But the main male lead practically throws rose petals on the ground she walks on and she constantly doubts his affections because he doesn't say a certain 3 worded phrase. Don't get me wrong, everyone wants to hear it! I totally understand that but confront him about it then. She has the balls to deny or refuse his orders(amongst other things) but can't even ask if he loves her back?! And let's be honest, he's a butthead! He's no Prince Charming and that's because he's a mafia man!!! He's a anti-knight not one in shining silver armor! She complains throughout the e n t i r e book! And I'm not exaggerating! Now, here's the whole "you're trying to kill my family" part.. What I don't get is that she grew up around the mafia setting but doesn't understand the male characters decision about killing her father- like really doesn't understand one bit. She is sheltered from the worst part of it all but gets the general idea of what happens behind closed doors. She says her father would never but she remembers him doing some sketchy crap. I would never want my father killed but she knows it's a kill or be killed world. How does she expect homie to not do anything to her father?! Especially when he's tried to kill Carter multiple times! Something has to happen. And that ending tho!!!!?!?! Did she really just do that and think everything was going to be okay?? Like that didn't just happen?? Bless Carter's heart for still "loving" this woman. After all that, if you can ride through all her "woe is me" (and even a little of his too) then you should STILL listen to this book! Jacob Morgan does a fantastic job- like always! But Savannah Peachwood definitely made her sound pretty pathetic with zero self esteem.. I hope that's what the author had in mind because all her chapters were like that in this book! But let's just use this book as an informational bit for part 4, shall we? Let's keep reading/listening!

Gripping, intense, suspenseful.

Listening to this book takes the experience from reading it to a whole new level. Jacob Morgan and Savannah Peachwood make the perfect duo as Carter and Aria. I’ve listened to a lot of mafia romance on Audible but this series is just phenomenal- the intensity of Carter is captured to perfection by Jacob Morgan. I’m so ready for book 4 in this series. My heart is in my throat! I’d recommend this series a thousand times over. 5+ stars all round.

Breathless

This book is edgy, and suspenseful and all the things a good dark romance book should be. I really enjoyed it!
