Publisher's Summary

She’s too smart, too pretty, and too good for a thug like me. Caro Archer loved me once, then left me in the wreckage. 

Now, she’s back with danger on her heels and my heart in her hands. Her safety should be my top priority. 

Only, Caro has other plans. 

She wants to give us a second chance. 

The part of me that aches for more wants to give in. But I’m the same man she turned her back on all those years ago - the same brute she left in the dust. 

What makes her think things will be different this time? Especially when it’s more than my heart on the line? 

Second chances don’t come easy for a man like me. This time, I might not survive. 

Kit can be listened to as a stand-alone and is book two in the Scarred Hearts series about brooding, vigilante-type heroes. Novels in this series include interconnected characters, but each story can be listened to on its own and has an HEA. Listening to them in order is not crucial but recommended.

A SUSPENSEFUL TENSE THRILLING SECOND CHANCE

This fast-paced second-chance romance is exciting and drama-filled as Kit steps in to protect ex girlfriend Caro.. his first love.. and his only love. Years earlier Caro had broken both their hearts when their incompatible lifestyles forced her to make a heartbreaking decision because Caro’s goal was to become a Doctor and Kit’s life was dangerous and on the shady side of legal. Since then Kit has cleaned up his act and each have tried to move on after their split but they never really could. And now Fate has Kit charging in to protect Caro.. unaware of the big pile of steaming poop they’ve both stepped into thanks to Caro’s ex and now they're drawn into a race against time to find a missing man.. to find answers.. and to stay alive. But there’s someone out there pulling their strings, threatening their lives, giving them ultimatums and deadlines.. and promising deadly consequences. Kit and Caro work together to succeed and to stay alive.. and along the way they both realize what they broke was precious.. what was once lost could be found again.. forgiveness is the way forward.. and so, could their love possibly be rekindled?.. if they survive.

The dual POV storyline has suspense, romance, high-octane drama, thrills, sex and sizzles, danger, heart-to-hearts, revelations and mystery as Kit and Caro race to find answers and dodge death before their time runs out. And Teddy and Vanessa brought the tension to the drama.. they infused their characters thoughts with conflict, regrets, frustrations and feels.. and the excitement and climactic action builds thanks to their wonderful narration.

Worth a credit? Yes it’s a suspenseful second-chance as the cryptic puzzle pieces are slowly dropped revealing manipulation, murder and an unknown mastermind. Everything will eventually fit into place for Kit and Caro.. but these destined soulmates will have to figure out the past wrongs.. before it feels right.

Great Story

First you can almost never go wrong with Teddy Hamilton or Vanessa Edwin. So the narration was awesome. The story was also awesome. I love a good 2nd chance romance and the suspense thrown in with it made it even better. This is the second or third book I listened to written by this author and have not been disappointed yet. Great characters, story line, it also has some characters from Prophet (you don't need to listen to it before reading this one). Good use of my credit.

Awesome!

I really enjoyed this book! I’ve never read anything by SM West so I honestly had no idea what to expect. This book had a wide variety of tropes and emotions. Second chance romance, intrigue, mystery, thrills. It definitely made you run the gamut of feelings and I enjoyed every moment.

Kit and Caro were a really great duo. I liked how Caro was quick to admit that she did something wrong when breaking it off with Kit. Although, to be honest, I kind of thought she had a somewhat valid point for doing it even though she could have actually fought Kit's choices a little bit before just giving up. The fact that all the blame wasn't put on Kit was very refreshing since that seems to be a common theme in romance books.

I loved the mystery aspect of this book. It was fun trying to figure out who was in on the whole debacle and who wasn't. Some of it was a little obvious, but not knowing how a certain person was involved kept me on my toes. It was fast paced and I didn't find any of it boring or drawn out. The action starts very early on and doesn't really stop until the end.

The narration was wonderful! Teddy Hamilton did such an amazing job, as usual. I'm still not super wild about his female voice, but I also wasn't all that wild about Vanessa Edwin's male voice, so I just overlooked all of that. Vanessa Edwin did a great job, as well. I think I've listened to maybe one other book she's narrated and I remember enjoying it too.

I was in a major book slump and a little over the usual tropes I listen to so I figured I'd try it out. I am so glad I did because it was a fun ride! Overall, I definitely recommend this one! I'll be checking out other books by not only the narrators, but the author as well.

The Wisdom from Maturity

4.5 stars - This romantic suspense hit the spot! The mystery and danger starts right out of the gate and doesn't stop until the end. I anticipated many of the twists but the delivery was still good.

Kit and Caro find themselves in the middle of a situation compliments of her ex. Things get ugly. Bodily harm occurs and street drugs are at the heart of the matter.

My heart breaks for both of them as they have grown up since Caro ended their relationship years earlier and each realizes what they need now that may not have been understood then but maturity has given (mostly) Caro the wisdom to she where she incorrectly judged. Despite the numerous trips to the hospital, I love when they let their guards down and reunite, body and soul. 💜🔥🎉💜

I enjoyed an author's copy of the audio book and I liked Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton as the narrators. I kept finding reasons to leave my ear buds in to listen to more of the story. A really good book!

5 Amazing Stars…All the way around!

Love, love, Loved this one! Its as good or better than the first. Its a second chance romance with a lot of action and suspense. The characters are witty and personable. I enjoyed them all—even the not so good ones. The author did a good job being secretive and not letting me figure out who was entirely bad. In fact I had one character pegged as a suspect…and they were completely legit.

Boy Oh Boy do I Love Kit! He is wonderful in all that he has overcame in his life. He is smart, quick on his feet and so sweet. I loved how devoted (mostly) he was to Caro. Once she was back in his life again…it was all her..all the time.

Caro really did well for herself as a doctor. Owning her own facility and also a second place in memory of her sister. She gets into a heap of trouble via a co-worker and her brother send Kit to help her out. All those times they spent staring at the pictures on his wall…standing near each other. Both wanting the same thing but neither acting on it..GAH! I love those scenes!

Overall I enjoyed this story as much as I did the first in the series. It is full of action and suspense that kept me riveted to my earbuds. I did listen to this on audio. Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton rocked this!

Hopefully Logan’s story will be next!

Second chance at love 💕

I just couldn’t stop listening to the story of Kit and Caro (sister to Nick “Prophet”). I loved this second chance at love, suspenseful story that kept me at the edge of my seat, curious to what would happen next.
Sweet epilogue and a HEA.

I really loved both narrators, Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton.

Steamy Romantic Suspense

“Kit’s my ex-everything. Everything aches—head, heart, and body—at the mere thought of him.”

S.M. West never fails to fully engage me in the danger, action, and romance in her stories and Kit is no exception. I was already invested in Caro and Kit’s relationship from Prophet so I was looking forward to learning more about their past and their current circumstances.

Caro and Kit had been together since they were teenagers, but Caro didn’t approve of Kit’s profession so she broke up with him. Both have struggled to move on because they both were still in love with each other. When Caro is targeted after a discovery at the clinic she works at, Kit vows to protect her and they are thrown back into close proximity which makes it difficult to deny their feelings. Can they have a second chance?

“She’s everything, the only thing, I’ve ever wanted.”

I absolutely loved Kit. He is such a gentle giant with a protective streak a mile long. He will do anything to ensure Caro’s safety even if it breaks his heart.

“I’ve always wanted Kit, even when I told him to leave.”

Caro is feisty and independent and has a big heart. She realizes that she has hurt both herself and Kit when she pushed him out of her life and sacrificed her own happiness. While fighting for answers about the trouble she is in, will she be able to convince Kit that her feelings never died?

Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton knocked it out of the park with their narrations of Caro and Kit. They truly brought the story to life for me and I felt every single emotion with the characters.

The chemistry between these two was scorching and I loved watching them come to terms with their past while dealing with the danger that seems to lurk around every corner. Kit is a thrilling rollercoaster road with the perfect amount of suspense and romance.

Riveting and thrilling Romantic Suspense!

The cover is beautiful! This is the second book in the Scarred Hearts, an interconnected standalone novels Series by S.M. West. I loved the Prophet (Nick and Maggie's story), the first book in the Series. I have read Kit before, and I was very thrilled to listen to it. The audiobook version is amazing! Kit and Caro's second chance to love is fast-paced, action packed, suspenseful, and captivating. Kit is handsome, and protective. Caro is lovely, strong, and independent. They are opposites attract, but they are so perfect together. This is a riveting and thrilling Romantic Suspense. I loved to see again Nick and Maggie. Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton did a fantastic job with the narration. I love their voices together. Now, I need more! I can't wait to listen to Logan's story! I HIGHLY recommend this Series! S.M. West never disappoints!

Good Listen

For me this book was just ok. There were moments when I thought that I had missed something and would go back, but that was just the way the story was written. Although sometimes the flow was off, the story was good. The narration saved it all for me. The narrators did an amazing job with this book. There were moments of boredom, but I can listen to Teddy Hamilton read me side effects on medication handouts. So for me the narrators saved this book.

Not your average walk in the park!!

S. M. West did a wonderful job with Kit and Caro’s second chance at love story !! Their reunion was not your average walk in the park. It was filled with action, deception , outside manipulations, suspense and villainous people out to destroy them. However, Caro’s honesty, compassion, self- reflection and willingness to share information with those who were important to her allowed her to obtain what she wanted most,Kit! On the other hand, Kit was understanding, protective, strong-willed yet loving, forthright and his great ability to read people allowed him to see beyond certain situations. Together, Caro and Kit cemented a connection that was unflappable even in the midst of danger. Teddy Hamilton and Vanessa Edwin were fantastic narrators who brought the characters to life and enhanced my listening experience!!

A believable and intriguing mystery plot

The author knows how to weave a believable and intriguing mystery plot. Though the hints are big enough to deduce who the bad guys are and what the connections between them are, it’s still smartly written, enough to keep you interested.

I liked the romance part too, between this badass dedicated doctor and the reformed bad boy who’ll do anything for the woman he loves. They have a past that we learn about, and that kept them away from each other for years. The danger Caroline finds herself in forces them to reconnect and to confront their feelings. They had several interesting scenes together, including the sexy ones. It was also great to see the impact their failed relationship had on them. All in all, I though the characters were well written.

That goes for the side characters too. Between the bad guys, the various friends and family, and the detective, that made a compelling gallery of characters. And they all had their role to play in the story. Except one that I felt was unnecessary–though not uninteresting.

The pace was good, keeping you on your toes, with some action thrown in.

Both narrators were extremely good, with emotions, actions and even sexy times. I was never bored.

Kit

The dual narration of Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton was just perfect for this great book.

I fell in love with this book from the very first sentence. You know it will be a fast paced and full of action book.

Kit and Caro have history and it didn't end well. A second chance of making things right but Kit’s priority is keeping Caro safe from the bad guys intent on harming her. You will find a story which is filled with danger, suspense, twists, action.

Fantastic Romantic Suspense!

SM West never disappoints! I await her audio releases and I was caught up in Caro and Kit's story from chapter one! Caro and Kit were once together. Kit, Caro's brother's best friend, has a checkered past, always doing what was needed to keep his family afloat. When Caro could take it no longer, they broke up and went their separate ways. Now Caro is a doctor, and her clinic has been bombed! To keep her safe, her brother Nick calls in his best friend to keep her safe. Will she accept his help? Will their smoldering feelings reignite? I loved this story! It's not only a second chance at love, but the story is full of suspense! Twists, turns, surprises and the bursting love keep this story alive and flowing. I couldn't stop listening! It's a great addition to the Scarred Hearts series!

I love both Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton and were thrilled to see they were teamed up to tell this story! Both are capture their characters so perfectly, it's not even an effort for them to keep me engaged. I enjoyed this narration and hope to see more of them together!

Thrilling!


The biggest mistake Caro ever made was ending her relationship with Kit. Now she has a second chance of making things right but Kit’s priority is keeping Caro safe from the bad guys intent on harming her. As the heat rises between them so does the threat against them in this thrilling, fast paced, steamy suspense. I highly recommend KIT (Scarred Hearts #2) it’s an exciting race against time romance, brought to life by wonderful narrators!

Outstanding Story & Listen🎧 Riveting & Heartfelt!

S.M. West pens another awesome novel set in her “Scarred Hearts” series. The action packed, suspense filled story is captivating from start to end, it is the kind of book once you start you can’t put down because you need to know what happens next. The characters in this series are complex and well developed, each book can be enjoyed on their own but I highly recommend both books, they are awesome and it is great to know the history and connections of all the characters. I adored both lead characters Kit Jensen and Dr Caroline “Caro” Archer, they were introduced in the first book, Caro is Nick’s sister and Kit is Nick’s friend. The two did have a relationship but it did not work out, mainly because of Kit’s chosen profession at the time. Like Nick he has turned his life around, he is restoring cars at Maggie’s shop and has plans of helping the business grow even further. Caro finished med school, her two jobs keep her buys, working at the clinic and helping in the home she and her brother set up in honor of her sister. But trouble comes her way when two thugs come in looking for Dr. Elliot Foley, her ex who used to work at the clinic. She knows nothing of what they are talking about or even looking for. But whoever sent the thugs does not believe that and are threatening her. She lets her brother know what is going on but he is out of town with Maggie, so he calls Kit and asks him to check in on her. It turns out the trouble she is in is deep and Kit winds up not only keeping her safe but helps her get to the bottom of what is going on. What they uncover is mind-boggling and it all leads back to Foley. The thrilling suspense is exciting at times and takes you to the edge of your seat, when you think you have things figured out another twist comes into play. Ms. West masterfully balanced romance and suspense with a side of mystery in this novel. These two definitely deserved a second chance at romance. The chemistry between them is undeniable, Kit held himself back, he had self worth issues and distanced himself and was not showing her the person he had become. It was something she needed to see for herself and when she figures out what he is going she is all in. S.M West, thank you for another awesome story and the thrilling and heartfelt emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 And for the amazing narration, Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton are entertaining storytellers and versatile voice artists. They did an awesome job portraying the characters, humanizing them, giving each their own voice and personality. They had a complete understanding of each character they played and took the role and made it their own, sounding believable and just as I pictured the character to sound. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all of the characters emotions and projected them into their performance. Thank you for another amazing listen, it is always a pleasure to listen to your work.
