Publisher's summary

He thought she was the one...until she walked away. Now she’s back and he wants her more than ever.

As a former Marine, Xander Kingston’s writing keeps him sane. Bonus? His thrillers made him one of Hollywood’s most desired screenwriters - and also introduced him to a fledgling starlet who broke his heart. With his close-knit family in New York, Xander returned home and found peace. Until Sasha Keaton shows up at his Hamptons retreat. Now an A-Lister, she’s as beautiful as he remembers. And just as dangerous to his heart.

Sasha learned from watching her mother to never sacrifice her dreams for anyone - only to discover how empty life could be without the man she loved. Now cast in Xander’s latest movie, she needs his insight to play the part, but secretly hopes for a second chance.

Xander has built emotional walls to keep Sasha at a distance, but their physical attraction can’t be denied. When a stalker’s threats intensify, Xander moves Sasha into his house to keep her safe. Before long she’s back in his bed and making inroads in his life.

But when the danger passes and the movie wraps, Sasha and Xander face a familiar choice - put career first or give love a fighting chance.

Decent

If you’ve read any of Carly Phillips books, you know they are a bit corny, like the pop equivalent for romance novels. Typical kind of storylines and spice. I do enjoy how she weaves together a series though and the Kingston Family is enjoyable fluff. Since this was included in Audible Plus I have no regrets. This book and others in the series are a perfect palate cleanser between more heavy reads.

I wanted more

I was so excited for the release of this and I was a bit disappointed. I’m not sorry that I purchased it I just feel like it fell a little flat. I’m hoping Dash’s story is better.

XANDER KINGSTON!

Another on from the Kingston family !
Xander Kingston the former Marine and famous Hollywood screenwriter of Thrillers met and fell in love with the then up coming actress Sasha Keaton who chose her career over their relationship which left Xander brokenhearted.

Sasha returned now cast in the latest movie by Xander and secretly hoping for a second chance while he moved her into his home for her safety….and then his bed …
But not long after dealing with the mysterious stalker Sasha and Xander was faced with the same challenges as before, put career first or give in to her love for Xander despite what her mother and team wants .
This is a good read/listen with family support sibling love dealing with PTSD , dash of danger a sprinkling of spice and a great epilogue with insight into the before characters and upcoming ones !

Once again the Narrators did a fantastic job bringing this story and characters to life and didn’t disappoint.

Definitely worth the Read/Listen !

He finally came around

I got so tired of the self centered whining by Xander and his insecurities causing him to treat Sasha so badly that I actually yelled at the audiobook. He wouldn’t let her talk or think for herself until the very end. I realize that the author had to build in the breakup for the makeup, but the “ hero “ wasn’t a very good guy for a good portion of the book. First he’s all hurt and is downright rude. Next he decides he wants her for sex, then he decides she doesn’t want him and pushes her away without talking to her. She’s a better woman than I am and must really love the guy to put up with him and his selfish actions. I listened to it all (except the gratuitous and unnecessarily descriptive sex scenes) and the narration was good. It kept my interest so it gets 4 stars.

Second Chance

Second chances do really happen. Being able to try again after a massive heartbreak isn’t always easy and some hang ups are going to happen no matter what. Suspense was there, spice was there, tears were there. Loved!

Amazing

Each book is wonderfully written and narrated. They make you feel like you are invested in the storyline not being able to stop listening. Well Done!!

This was hard for me to finish.

This book couldn’t hold my interest. I found myself not listening and missing parts of the story. The most interesting part was her stalker and that whole thing didn’t last long. This whole series so far is short and to the point, which means a lot of details are omitted and a lot of plot, character, and relationship building are lacking. Compared to the first two books, this one was a little better in the relationship building just because they had a past, but I just couldn’t connect to the characters and their love. As of right now I’m not interested in finishing the series, though I’d like to see what happens with Aurora in the 5th book.
