Publisher's Summary

Ross Ward is bound by the chains of his past he never could seem to shake, leaving him living in darkness, detached from the world around him, and an obsessive workaholic with really only one rule: mind your own business.

Until one night, there was Adalind Hollis - scared, confused, in need of help. And for the first time, he couldn't convince himself to walk away, to mind his own business. Even after she was getting the care she needed, he couldn't seem to make himself stay away. But keeping her close meant he would eventually have to let her in, would have to offer over the horrors of his past, and hope she could accept it.

But even if she would embrace his past, could she accept his plan to exact brutal, bloody vengeance against the man who hurt her?

Contains mature themes.

Loved this book

I received a recommendation for this author on another authors fan page. Since then I have been binge reading all her books. This is currently her only audio book and I loved it.

This is the story of Ross Ward and Adalind. You are sucked into the story from the very beginning when Ross discovers her unconscious by the dumpster outside his fight club. The story progresses and every time I think I know what is going to happen I am surprised. The narration was great. This book is definitely worth a credit.

another home run for Jessica Gadziala

I read this book when it came out as an ebook and was stoked to see that an audio book was available. My commute is horrendous. Audio books make it all tolerable.

I enjoyed the voice actors. They were believable as Ward and Addy and really made the story shine. Their depiction of Adler made me laugh snort.

so so good.

Loved it

I am new to this author. I finished Reign which is also excellent and saw this was her only other audible although I understand that others are in the pipeline. Great story, excellent narrators. Strong H and h. No angst through stupidity (one of my pet peeves). Worth a credit. I will certainly listen to any more of her books as they become available.

3.75 stars

I really like the story and the characters. My favorite parts were towards the end. I would have given it more stars if instead of getting the glimpses into the future we had actually gotten more. I'm greedy like that and I loved the friendship between Ward and Adler so I would have liked to have gotten more. Great narration.

loved

I had previously read this book and loved the story but wanted to try in on audible.
I was very happy with the narrators they did a wonderful job and I think book narrating is a hard lane to do good on.
Book is wonderful, narrators great and performance great a well

Such a great story!

I am a long time JG reader and I really loved this story. JG has the ability to create this lovable characters with very different and well developed back stories. I enjoy how strong her female characters are. Her male characters are so loving and caring of their women, not perfect but they always have that "protect my woman" thing that I can't get enough of. Ward a man with a really difficult past and Adelind with her sweet amd trusting personality make such a great couple. I just love how she does a nice and long epilogue (something not many writers do. BTW THANK YOU JG). Both narrators did a great job.

loved!

I loved this so much! I haven't read a lot of JG's books, but every time I do, I'm reminded of how much I enjoy her writing. This one was classic damsel in distress, but after he saves her, she saves him right back. I love a troubled hero with a dark past. I thought the narration was good, as well.

North - Great / Cook - Robotic - Story Awesome

I usually only write reviews by indicating if it gets 5 stars or 1. In this instance, I have to say something. I LOVE Jessica Gadziala and ALL of her books. I am excited that they have turned them into audiobooks (NEXT STOP MOVIES!). However, the female narrator for this story is driving me bonkers. I am not sure if it is just me but she sounds like a computer-generated voice. Her speech is not fluid like a normal person speaking, but as if she is reading. There isn't much inflection and it stilted. It is really taking me out of the story. The guy narrator, by comparison, is great. Unfortunately, because the story alternates between the male POV and female POV it is making it difficult to enjoy. I just wanted to give some feedback for the future.

Good read

Great narration both FMC and MMC. I would consider this a sweet with a bit of dark. If you like dark romance, this isn't for you. - it will fall flat. The conflict isn't prolonged or particularly unique but it's just enough to be entertaining. This is really a common tale of a man with a dark history finding a woman to be his light and future. I do like the multiple epilogues that let us see into the future. :)
