Publisher's Summary

Mackenzie Brooks is everything I've ever wanted. Three years ago, she walked out of my life. No explanation. Just gone. With the biggest fight of my career only weeks away, she walked back in. I'll do anything to protect her. Destroy anyone who tries to hurt her. When it comes to Mac, there isn't a line I won't cross. I've loved her my entire life, and now that's she's back I won't let her go. She refuses to speak about the past, or the secrets I know she's hiding. I know she's planning on running again. But when you love someone, you stay and fight. Even if you're fighting blind.

"A raw tale of love and second chances, forgiveness and trust, simmered over an intense flame of smoldering heat and sexual tension." (Dii, Tome Tender Book Blog)

Theo & Mac!!!

Theo & Mac were best friends until the night she disappeared. Mac shows up 3yr later with LOTS of secrets. There's a bad guy who takes mean to the next level & a mother who's a witch! Mac keeps making poor choices and frustrating the beejeepers out of me. Theo is a good guy with the patience of a saint. We eventually get an HEA.

Maddening To The Very End! I love it!

I have such a love/hate relationship with this story! So many wrongs these two make it a messy cluster of feels throughout that had me wanting to pull my hair and shake a fictional character for the second time!
I am already a big fan of C.M Seabrooks, and this story, getting a different perspective of the characters through audible makes it even more worthwhile!

Narration; different from others I have heard- was not how I anticipated the characters to be, but gave them different depths- still painted a picture to go along with the tale and pleasing to the ear!

Love Theo

A book with romance, suspense and a man with a little girl, what more can you ask for? CM Seabrook has come up with a winning combination. Theo has always love Mackenzie, but never was able to let her know. After a drunken one night stand, Mac leaves, returning 3 years later. Theo, being the protective man he is and with the love he has does his best to keep her safe, but when he finds out her secrets, will he be able to forgive her and keep her alive? Theo is definitely a man that is easy to fall in love with, his ability to make Mac feel safe, and his scenes with his princess will melt your heart. Mac at times is frustrating, though I understand exactly her thought process, there were times I wanted to strangle her and make her spill all of her past so Theo could help her through it. I also love how Seabrook involves Theo's mom, giving the feeling of a complete family as well as involving Theo's best friend(hope he gets a book too!). Second chances are something to strive for and this book proves how love will help conquer all.

Jeffrey and Ali Peterson give a performance with all the feels and emotions that this story has. Jeff has that deep baritone voice giving Theo that protective, alpha feel with Ali portraying Mac as the scared and protective mom she is.

Good story, OK narration

I really enjoyed this story. I actually have liked all of C.M. Seabrook's books, especially Wild Irish. I like the dual narrative and dual POV.

However, these are not my favorite narrators. In my opinion, the emotion and tone if the narration do not always reflect what is happening in the story.

It was.....ok

I think I may have enjoyed it a little more with different narrators. It was a bit of a struggle picturing young and beautiful people.

What a book!!!

I have read a few books by C.M. Seabrook and enjoy her style. This book is a standalone listen, yet it has mention of some characters from another book (Moody, which is also available on Audible). I thought the narrators (Ali Peterson & Jeffrey Peterson) added a lot of emotions to the POV. This book has suspense, romance, secrets, and a second chance at love. I highly recommend this book. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Terrible narration

I found myself rolling my eyes at the narration right from the start - knowing what punctuation means would be a good start land variation in the tone of voice wouldn't hurt. The story could be good, I don't know. I have returned. Perhaps a better one for kindle
