She pulled him up into a lip-locked kiss, nodding when she felt his cock brush against her, touch questioning.
He entered her and made her feel full. She hadn't even seen him put on the condom, and she had never been better prepared for sex than she was that evening. Months of pressure she hadn't even begun to suspect was building up inside her was let loose, every muscle relaxed and ready to follow the steady rhythm their bodies fell into as naturally as sleep. Later, she would marvel that she had entirely forgotten....
Warning - This story has hot and steamy sexual content and is not suitable for all ages - 18+.

I loved the way the story changed to have the heroine as the strongest character. Although she is injured and has lost both legs she is adamant that they will not cut anymore from her body. The billionaire is the nerd who gets the girl after inventing legs that she can use very effective. She is also secure enough in herself that she looks beyond the outer shell that he presents and sees the true man inside. I also love the way she helps to save her brother from his disastrous lifestyle choices. A great story all around.

The more I read /listen about/to Abe and Ida, the angrier I became. 😡
First we have Ida, a US war veteran, a double amputee – losing some of each leg due to a blast.
Ida is determined that she does not want surgery, even if it were to help fit conventional prosthetics. She does not want to lose any more of her physical and emotional self.
Along comes Abe, a nerdy billionaire who has created prosthetic legs & feet that respond to the thoughts of the wearer. 😡 This is total fantasy, as there is not anything remotely close in ANY technology.
However, in our story these prosthetics are being tested at a VA Hospital (again complete fantasy, 😡I would love it if it were happening but not at this point in the year 2016) and our Ida is chosen to be the recipient. She slips them on -similar to Cinderella- and begins to walk, no issues to complain about, she just has to get used to them – which she does, overnight!
✘I was willing to forgive this aspect of the story and move along,
✘ There was a steamy love scene that came out of nowhere and I was ready to see how they played out. Instead we realize that Ida has PTSD and problems with her addict brother.
✘ As I'm writing this review, I have begun to understand what it is that bothers me. It is the complete glossing over a serious health issues that our men and women in the Armed Forces are dealing with daily. I surely hope that no veteran picks up this book. It is so disrespectful to what our heroes deserve.
✘ The flippancy, without acknowledging the hard work that many veterans go through, to happily ever after without ANY of the bumps and bruises, especially for those who have served during wartime, is lacking.
✘ I am being very harsh on a well-written book and a super performance. But this should be classified as fantasy – not fiction fiction. I would like to try something written by Kathleen Hope in the future, but she only has one more chance with me.
✘ If asked, I would advise the author in this manner: If writing more on this topic, spend some time with those veterans who have come back with physical and mental challenges to overcome. It will benefit your insight greatly and perhaps your writing will become more authentic.
✘ The narration by Theresa Stevens was very good. I would not hesitate to pick up any book narrated by her.
✘ It is very difficult for me to give a negative rating. Out of the hundreds I've written, there are only a handful. I appreciate the author's bravery in writing, allowing perfect strangers to read/listen to your work. However, due to the points made above, my overall rating is 3.5, the average of performance (4 glowing stars) and story (two stars.)
✘ Strong language, mature themes.
*I received this work in exchange for my review; good, bad or meh. I've written all 3 kinds.

This wasn't what I was expecting, I am not really sure what I was expecting but I am super happy I read this book. It was different yet kept me hooked.
Ida home from the war, all she wants to do is walk again. After and explosion that took both her feet she wants nothing more than to walk again.
Abe, maker of robotics comes to her with legs. He is a little cute, a whole lot nerdy and he sees something in Ida that she hasn't or won’t see in herself.
This romance was awesome, kick butt and totally heart melting. I worthy read for dang sure.
Again I am a fan of this narrator she did a wonderful job bring this story to life. I would defiantly listen to more by her.

Ida is a soldier who lost part of her legs in combat and is now home, unable to walk and finding difficulty in getting a working plan together to get ambulatory in a way that does not require further amputation. When she is presented with an option from Abetech for robotic prosthetic prototypes, she's a bit skeptical but willing to give it a try. Abe, the CEO and founder of Abetech is (of course) smokin' hot, BUT he's a bit of an aloof, insensitive clod at first impression, but he then displays some geeky charm and humor, along with the aforementioned hotness, and Ida manages to get past it. ;) There's a bit of danger and action to round out this great listen.
I really liked that Ida was kind of a badass and that she could be strong without lording her badassness over Abe or any other gender-competitive BS. I especially LOVE it when a short story is also a complete story that flows well, without feeling too rushed and with no cliffhanger. YEA!!
Theresa Stephens is a great narrator. Her performance had the right inflection, pronunciation and emotion and was delivered with a natural cadence that enhanced and complemented the writing.
