Publisher's Summary

I use people. Not in a malicious way, but in the way an addict abuses their substance of choice. People are my vice - men specifically. I crave the emotional high they give me, with a unique and reckless disregard for my own well-being - eagerly floating into an unsustainable euphoria, knowing full well that after every high comes an equal, if not more powerful, plummet into a devastating abyss. But like every junkie, I crawl willingly back into the arms of my demons.

Oh, the price we pay to feel loved. We'd all sell our souls to the devil himself for that. Perhaps I have already.

They say that acknowledging that you have a problem is one of the first steps to recovery. Well, in that case, my name is Charleston Smith, and I have a f--king problem.

SO FRUSTRATED!!!

I swallowed the story in one listening, but the ending left me frustrated and mad! I understood Charleston’s choices, emotional fights, my heart ached for her... but for the love of God, we really deserved a closure. Do I have my pick? Sure I do... Will I ever know? Of course not, because Anne Jolin decided we don’t need it. I mean, Charleston’s character grew so much and at the end of the day, it was all thrown out the window with the open end. Peachy...

No ending.

Not a romance story

This is not a bad story, it’s just not a romance. Nor is the title at all indicative of the story. It’s a story of a woman dealing with her overwhelming grief from a terrible loss. There are men who aid her in this in different ways, but you learn next to nothing about them, nor does she seem to care about them, so you can’t invest in them as romantic partners for the lead. Rather this is a story if a survivor’s struggle and it’s a tear jerker.
SPOILER ALERT- you don’t learn who she ends up with. I say this only because I wasn’t wanting to read a tear jerker and only stayed with this book to the end to see who she chose. Fortunately, as I said earlier, there is no depth to her feelings for any of the men -aside from the one she lost- so it didn’t matter if she ended up with any of them.

Never really ended

No HEA. It was a weird ending and left me a bit blah. It’s not really a romance, but more of a strong woman commentary.

Awesomeness

You want to read about a strong female that rules her professional life but is a little messy with her personal life? This is for you. Charleston is such a great character. I love her approach on life and the men in this book are... Well... HOT.

I loved Hell On Heels in written form and Maxine Mitchell really brought it to life for the audio. She was the perfect choice.

This was the worst book ever

I dont read expecting a happy ending. But its totally unforgivable to have an 8hr book end in pick your own love story ending. Its a cop out by the writer because she didn't want to decide and put the ownus on the reader it seems irresponsible. it feels like a waste of time. That being said its also a sad sack dreary book about loss and grief and grieving. Save yourself your sanity and a credit.

great book

originally when I started this book I thought, she was so broken I didn't know if I could keep reading/listening. I did love that she had a romance between 3 men. made her feel more like a real person. glad she just didn't run to the super successful man like most of these do. she actually struggled through all the feelings of ao many torn between men in there lives and sadness and life with friends. good book, good steamy romance parts to keep it hot.

Read if okay with cliffhanger without a follow up

Ugh. The book was good but the ending wasn’t an ending. I am not a fan of the last lines or odd author’s letter to the reader as an epilogue. The narrator was very good and the storyline was interesting, but not satisfied with the lack of an “ending”.

Sorry it's not worth it

What a disappointment at the end you said it's not who she picks but what she when through and what she worked out in the end but sorry but knowing who she picked to make her get to where she needed makes the story after it all !!!!so only 1 star 🌟

I need therapy or at least a chat room after this

Depressing story. Protagonist is not very likeable. No clear ending. Toooooo much self analizing. I dont find it endearing that she is seeing 3 men at the same time. The men I also dont get. Like Maverick. Wtf? Passion, a little agression, then he gets her to pull herself together and thats it. He wants her, but like not enough to actively pursue her, or be there like ever other than these rare ocacions. I could be ranting for hours about my frustrations about this book. It is not an upbeat story, no satisfactory ending, and throughout I felt really frustrated, sometimes even teary. Do not choose this if you are looking for something light and happy.

Depressing

Most depressing book I’ve listened to. Main character is selfish and self pitying. Can’t see what has attracted any of the men to her, God help the one she chose in the end. Well done to her therapist for managing to make a living out of her misery for 10 years.
Very good narrator, especially considering what she was working with.

Soul searching deep story.

Really well written and narrated the characters were believable. The story is sad and difficult to navigate but it's worth the listen. Love is Hard loving yourself is harder.

A lovely story self discovery and forgiveness

Charlie definitely had alot to sort out when it came to love and relationships.. needing to move passed the grief over loosing the 2 most important men in her life..
10 years later Charlie has a successful event planning business and 3 handsome panties melting suitors..
Dean who was her brothers best friend and her first love that disapeared without a word, crushed her heart and nearly broke her 💔 Beau is a lovely, romantic, sexy close to a perfect package that brings her calm and Maverick is all heat, lust, passion, push, and challenge, unless he changes it up and is her strong support..
Can Charlie heal herself so that she may love again?

What a soul searcher

I was not expecting this story.
Very very well written
the characters in my voice are true, the feelings were felt so deep they bought me to tears which is something I don’t do.

It reached me in ways I had never expected a book like this to do.
From my heart the words written were felt and the lives were consumed by the people who wrote it.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me grieve many many years later and I hope you have opened my heart to healing, i thank you
