Publisher's Summary

When I saw my escape, I took it. Now I'm in New York City and trying to get my life back on track. Despite the tracker in my ankle, Crow hasn't come for me. He hasn't even called me. I told him the depth of my feelings but he cruelly rejected them.

Maybe he's forgotten about me.

One day, I walk into my apartment and spot the pile of buttons on the counter. I never left them there, and there's only one explanation for their presence.

Maybe Crow hasn't forgotten me after all.

LOVED THIS SERIES.DARK SIDE OF OBSESSION AND LOVE

Any additional comments?

I did not review the first two books because I needed to know how it ended. There are some brutal moments but the story is well rounded and the depth of the characters was a complete enjoyable experience. At times I was even afraid of what would happen. Get all three because it is worth every credit and the ending is well worth the wait🌟🌟🌟🌟

Six Stars Out of Five

This has become one of my favorite series of all times by a favorite author and a favorite pair of narrators. While it is a dark romance with lots of action and intrigue (and steamy sex scenes) it is a very uplifting story. Penelope Sky's writing is both luxurious and savage . She creates the best female characters who she tosses about in a world of powerful and corrupt men who are not quite tough enough or cunning enough to conquer them. The voice actors, Samantha Cook and Michael Ferraiuolo, are the dream team for the stories in this series. Their voices become the characters. They are honest in their portrayals of Button and Crow allowing the story to unfold at the perfect pace for each of the characters. Michael Ferraioulo's voice could melt the panties off the Statue of Liberty.
Over the last few chapters I was begging for the climax and dreading the finale. I hate to see this series end and feel a big "book slump" galloping up behind me as I write this.

overall well done

I liked the ending, however, some of the interactions and sex scenes were hard to listen to. A lot of the sex scenes were not consentual.

Completely absorbed

This series is everything!!

From start to finish, I didn’t breathe, I didn’t eat, I didn’t smile, I didn’t do anything... ok, maybe I’m lying. But it felt like it.

For days, I was in a trance. My earbuds glued to my ears as I made my way through this epic, dark, twisty and angsty journey. I got little sleep because I just couldn’t put it down. I can’t even review separately because I couldn’t stop long enough between books to review.

And that is no joke.

Michael and Samantha couldn’t have been more perfect. They portrayed all characters so distinctly that I knew exactly who was speaking at all times and that couldn’t have been easy. They are truly talented.

YES!

This book was a good choice.. I would definitely recommend... The victim was not to be played with, and she let you know it.

Buttons and Pain

The last book in this trilogy was the ideal way to wrap up Pearl and Crow's story. It gave them both the ending they deserved.
It once again, showed just how fierce Pearl was, and just how ruthless Crow could be.
They really are each others light in the darkness. On the surface Pearl showed Crow how resolute she was in her decisions. She was able to detach herself, making Crow see her true worth. When the realisation of what he was risking, finally dawned on him, let's just say, THAT moment took MY breath away!
I look forward to reading Cane's story now..

Michael and Samantha are my new favourite duo

Would you consider the audio edition of Buttons and Pain to be better than the print version?

I strongly believe a good match between narrator and their character is vital for the listener to engage the story and Penelope Sky hit the nail on the head with her choice of narrators to portray Pearl and Crow.
This story is full of pain, torment, passion, tension and violence and Michael and Samantha did every emotion justice, captivating the listener in a flawless performance.
