I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

If you've ever been in an abusive relationship (raises hand slowly) then this is a must read! If you just want to read a great book then again, thus is A must read for you.. I too was in an abusive relationship for 3 years, he cheated on me, gave me a VD as proof of it happening. He lied, he choked me many times to the point of almost passing out, he slammed my head on the window in his car, he physically and verbally assaulted me and as hard as it is to say and for anyone I told to understand he did rape me. His reasoning "I just wanted to see how it would feel to overpower someone. To see if I could really have that much control over u." I was 18 and stayed with.him from 17-20 yrs old. Then I was done, I had enough and left him, it wasn't easy at all. Then 3 months later I ended up with someone I graduated with, 2 weeks later we get engaged and on 9/24/14 we celebrated 20 yrs of a very happy marriage. This book brought me thru my journey even though the story itself is different. BRAVO Tara, it was a different type of book for you. I loved the entire story. It was better than I ever thought it would be. We both ended up with our princes.
The narrators were AMAZING. I love listening to a book and really liking the people telling the Story!!
Thank u for letting me know I chose the right guy!!

YUP, THIS IS ONE HOT LISTEN

For two years Finnely had been happily in love with her High School sweetheart Colin but the rat b'stard broke her heart with a mere 'it's not working out' note and that's when Jordan swooped in, claimed, possessed and married her. But 17 years later her dreams had turned to dust, leaving her empty and knowing things must change..... but not all change is good because along with it came distress, drama and danger.

This was an enjoyable, but frustrating, listen with good narration from dual POV's - there was numbness as a marriage ended, sizzling chemistry as two once young friends reconnected, reacquainted and rekindled. Now, as experienced adults, hot hot passion, dirty thoughts and talk ignite as they bonded and then heartbreak as their HEA all went up in smoke. But I said frustrating because there was a lot of each person's internal dialogue rather than joint dialogue which sadly lost it a star for me.

Worth a credit? It was an entertaining hot contemporary listen about a sexy fireman getting a second chance at love with no cliffhanger ending and yes, IMHO, a creditworthy listen.

Good but....

The story is good and sweet but it became redundant (how many times do we have to know that she made the right decision? We get it the first time).
Narration - Jason is good as always. Ashley is so-so. She talks so slow that I have to speed up during her narration. Her timing is off too with the tendency to be overdramatic. Her male voice is great though.

An edge of your seat second chance love story!

Absolutely loved this book! Collin and Finnley are explosive! I can totally relate to Finnley as I have been in her situation. This is a definite must read! Can't wait to read the next installment!

Dirty and sweet.

Very emotional, very well written erotica. There were times when I was embarrassed listening to it, which definitely proves how hardcore it was, but there was a decent, engaging back story that kept me interested from beginning to end.

Steamy hot

Finely and Jordan were high school sweethearts but it was all a lie. Colin didn’t want to be without her but Jordan had to have her. Glad his addictions were greater than his love for finely (sarcasm). Colin finally had the balls tp admit his mistake and fought for his girl

Prefer reading over audio...

This is a case where I enjoyed reading the book way more than listening to the audio version; and I’m glad I did, otherwise, I probably would have rated it lower.

Jason Clarke was very good but Ashley Klanac’s performance was mediocre at best. She over-dramatized her scenes and her slow speech pattern and stretching of words had me tempted to skip her POVs and rush through the story.

Original ebook rating August 2016

The blurb of this book sucked me in and had me fully engaged from beginning to end.

It was fast-paced and well-written with some really steamy sex scenes. Hmm....h wondered what it would be like to have sex with her first high school sweetheart since they never went "all the way" and boy did he learn a lot in 17 years. That speaker scene alone was off the charts hot! Great main and side character's. This was a believable plot and not overly done.

This book is my first introduction to Tara Sivec's and I liked it so much that I'm already onto the next book!

Loved it!

This was my second or third audiobook by Tara Sivec and it lived up to every expectation I had. I’ve been a fan of Jason Clarke for quite awhile now, but this is my first time to hear Ashley Klanac. WOW! Where has she been hiding? Look out Andi and Erin, AK has entered the race for best female narrator! I will definitely keep an eye/ear out for her work.

Decent Story

This was a decent story and the male voice actor was great but the female was not my favorite. She had a whiny tone that I could only handle in small doses. Overall, story was pretty predictable but a good read.

Great Book

In the summary its not enough for them to convince me into buying this book. So what I did was went online and did a little research on the book and get a little more information, rather then all those repeated "seventeen years/seventeen days" words which doesn't give much clue to the storyline.
Anyway, after getting enough comments from other readers and their story of the book I was convince to buy this book. I listen to it and finish it in a day. It is a great book, love it!!

Definitely worth the purchase or credit. Well to give a little spoiler, it does has a happy ending at the very end. Just wish the story would stretch out a little bit more (Just a little bit like another couple of minutes to half an hour), it feels little rush at the end.
