Publisher's Summary

Lawrence Finkle, known to his die-hard Minnesota Wild fans simply as Viper, isn't used to hearing the word no. He lives his whole life just a little on the reckless side. After all, life is just one big game, right?

When what was supposed to be an innocent bet goes horribly wrong, Lawrence is left to deal with the aftermath and the guilt. In an effort to make things right the best way he can, he ends up falling for the one person on the planet he never should have. The old saying goes that two wrongs don't make a right...or do they?

Sweet

This is such a sweet love story. Different format from what I'm use to. The author made it so real As always Joe Arden did a great job as a narrator. Still not a fan of Maxine though so I'm glad Joe read most of the book.

Sadness and inspiration

This story was about a pro hockey player and his loose lifestyle, who suddenly becomes faced with overwhelming tragedy. Afterward he goes into counseling therapy at his team owners demand because his life seems out of control because he blames himself for everything that happened. This audiobook dealt a lot with him finding his way, becoming the man he wants to be and falling in love with his best friends widow. Well narrated and a moving story.

Love

I love Viper's story. He was already so damaged and then to have been part of something that changed his life so completely and endure the self loathing that comes with feeling responsible for something... this was bound to be a life altering listen.

The entire story had me, hook line and sinker. Couldn't turn it off. I felt like I knew what was happening and what was going to happen, but Beth told the story in such a way that I was enthralled.

Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are always perfection but I especially appreciated their performance in this book. Maxine was challenged with giving a voice to a child, a mom, a gruff hockey player and more and she performed perfectly. Joe's voice was perfect for Viper.

first...

This is my first audiobook by this author and it was a very good one! The feels felt so real and you could just imagine the pain, guilt, the fighting of the attraction. and finally the love between Michelle and Viper. And, of course, the narration was A- number one!

Very angsty and slow bur but well worth it.

I wanted to continue with my binge of all things Beth Ehemann and having a chance to see Viper get his story told was great. It was certainly unexpected that the author chose to go this route, but I think it served well the characters and gave me as a listener something with intensity and angst to root for. The narration, as always is the case with Joe & Maxine, was spectacular. They play with nuances and emotions very well and I just love how they are able to bring these characters to life.

Speechless

This book and it’s plot took me by surprise. It was so emotional at times that it took my breath away. Definitely a good listen!
