Where hurt people go...

Ephraim Levine had it all, except Maliah Porter.

She isn’t the one who got away, she is the one who walked away.

He has adored Maliah Porter since they were children. She has epitomized beauty, innocence.

Everything about her captivated him. As they’ve matured and their love grew, he worshipped her body and soul.

And then, without reason, Maliah Porter left Ephraim Levine, and shattered their unbreakable love. He was suddenly held captive by her memory.

His obsession with her ruined him...But it also shaped the attractive, brilliant Ephraim into a calculating man.

One who would stop at nothing to take what he wanted. Maliah.

He will set the perfect scene - build the perfect cage to entrap the Queen.

And finally free himself of the restless need to dominate the one who stole his heart.

OK

I had a hard time getting into this story and staying there. It kept jumping back and forth from the past and into the now. I had a hard time keeping up and sometimes couldn't tell which was which. The narration was good. Carter did good with the different voices. I had a hard time finishing this. The last few chapters held my interest as I had to see how it ended. For me not bad but not real good either.

Wow!

This love story takes you through a lot of emotions. It is a wonderful story that shows know matter how much time pass, real love will always be there and will bring you back to each other when the timing is right.

Loved it!

I loved the flow of the story and the pain of the romance. It was an exciting, heart-pounding, dramatic ride. Great story!

Cool read

Interestingly enough this is one of my favorite reads from this author. I love bdsm and I didn’t feel like this was out the realm of things practiced in the lifestyle (though for those with a negative view of bdsm, she probably could have been less intense).

It wasn’t a five star read because it felt too long and incorporated too much backstory to minor characters that bored me at times. Loved that there was a female domme in the story but wish they would give her own book.

This author likes to write romantic suspense but this book felt like way more love scenes than plot(it felt like 10+love scenes). I love that it’s set in New Haven, CT( currently live there!)! But there were hits and misses but overall it was a hit.

Also liked that the hero was polish Jewish; heroine was biracial(and blue eyed).

Ephraim & Maliah

A story of second chance love, this was engaging and incredibly erotic. Ephraim and Maliah were childhood sweethearts, firsts to each other and now years later after the unexplained fleeing of Maliah are finding their way back to each other. Well, maybe that is not exactly true. The two have always been in tune with each other, but Ephraim has been watching and waiting for the chance to take her back. And take her back he does. It is full of pushing and pulling by Lee-Lee(Maliah), she is not wanting to give in to him, but her feelings are to strong not to keep going back. Avant also weaves in a thread of suspense, but I did find at time that the steamy scenes tended to overpower the story. Ephraim is more than an alpha, he is a man on a mission, extremely focused and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. His dominant nature follows him into the bdsm lifestyle and he has met his match with his submissive Lee-Lee. She is a sub by nature, loves the lifestyle, but she definitely has a defiant streak. It's a match made in heaven.

The narrator of this dark romance is Carter Donovan. It's my first listen by him, and while he gives a good performance, he is not the fit I would expect for Ephraim. Ephraim needs a deep, dark voice, and Carter was not giving that to me. I enjoyed his voice for Lee-Lee, but would have preferred a darker narrator for Ephraim.
