Publisher's Summary

Affton

I hated Cable James McCaffrey.

He was entitled, spoiled, a user...and an addict.

He was out of control and didn't bother trying to hide it.

He had everything anyone could want but still seemed miserable and lost.

Every move he made, every mistake he stumbled his way through, rubbed me the wrong way. However, I couldn't stop myself from trying to save him from himself when no one else would. In the sweltering heat of the summer, Cable taught me that having it all means nothing if you can't have the one thing you want more than anything else.

Cable

I was obsessed with Affton Reed.

She was rigid, uptight, and no fun. There was something about her innate goodness that called to me.

She acted like she was above all the normal faults and failures that clung to the rest of us like the scent of smoke after a fire. I was infatuated with her, but that didn't stop me from acting like she didn't exist.

In the scorching heat of summer, Affton taught me that there is always a way back from the brink of despair. She showed me that the trick to having it all was realizing that it was already there, in my hands. All I had to do was hold on to it.

The road to recovery is full of twists and turns no matter who is in the driver's seat.

Good but lacks

There was an awful lot of telling and not showing in this book. But I suppose I was ok with it. It's just a shame bc it could have been so much better. Maybe that's why I stopped reading Crownover since the Inked series. I never even read Asa's story. But I was intrigued by the addict storyline. And it was good. And it was certainly hot. It wasn't a wasted credit. Read it. I don't think you'll be sorry to be told a hot love story :)

Amazing!

Wow! I'm totally blown away by this story! This is so much more than a book about addiction. Well developed characters, angst, sexy times, drama, this book had everything and I didn't want it to end. The writing was fantastic. I can't say enough about how wonderful the narration was for this one - the narrators did such a great job bringing these characters to life. Highly recommend!

Best book yet!

I rarely give a book 5 stars but this book deserves all 5 and more. Such a real, raw look at addiction and love. Jay Crownover is one of my favorites and this book is her best work yet.

Interesting Characters - Great Read

I really liked this book. It’s a typically well written Jay Crownover story, where the hero is flawed and the confident intelligent girl saves the guy. I don’t really mind the at times formulaic storyline because the characters are so interesting and the way it is written flows so well. I love that the heroine is strong, without being sarcastic and bitchy - which some authors think makes her appear to be ‘kickass’, but instead makes her just rude. I love that the drama is not centred around idiotic miss communications, instead we are shown real emotions, scenario’s that are actually possible and drama that could really happen.

A must listen!!!

I read this story in a monthly newsletter by the author and fell in love with the characters. Their story was reflective of past experiences and their pain was heartfelt and honest. The male narrator matched how I believed Cable sounded and his baritone voice was swoon-worthy. If I didn’t like the story, I would have switched the female parts to just listen to him. As the story progresses, you will experience a range of emotions for each character and fall in love with their relationship.

easiest 5 star ever!

there's a story, a reason, and a breaking point for everyone suffering from addiction. sometimes that breaking point ends in finality, and sometimes that breaking point becomes the way out of the fog. Crownover tells the story of one addicts journey through sadness and and heartache. Through depression and anxiety. The love and sometimes hate that finally causes someone to open their eyes. Cable's character can be any one suffering. The story is beautifully written and full of raw emotion.
The narrator's brought this story to life and kept me attached beginning to end

Thoroughly enjoyed...

I really loved this story. It was sweet with some angst but not overdone with either. The narration was great as well.

5 STARS FOR CROWNOVER

Jay Crownover has a way with tortured souls and does not disappoint with Cable and Affton.
This is a story of acceptance and forgiveness and not just for the love hate relationship these two are growing. Cable is on a rough journey but as dislikable as he seems in chapter one by midway you will be cheering him on to not only do right by Affton but to overcome his demons for himself.
I loved how steadfast Afftons Reed is. Her loyalty to her loves ones is strong but her loyalty to herself is even more important.
So may times young heroines are depicted as soft and easily distracted. Not Affton. She is fierce and driven.
Ms. Lucy James was a showstopper in this narration. Her southern accent was wonderful and I will be looking up her otherworks!
Lance Greenfield also did a great job, though his mature voice seemed older than Cable, he is great at his craft. I've listened to him narrate quite a few books and he never disappoints!
