Publisher's Summary

Seventeen years old when he broke my heart.

Seventeen days later when another picked up the pieces.

Seventeen years together.

Seventeen thousand problems.

Seventeen days of reliving my past and finding a new future.

Seventeen minutes until it all went up in flames.

Seventeen breaths until I took my last.

This is my story, and it's going to burn.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

If you've ever been in an abusive relationship (raises hand slowly) then this is a must read! If you just want to read a great book then again, thus is A must read for you.. I too was in an abusive relationship for 3 years, he cheated on me, gave me a VD as proof of it happening. He lied, he choked me many times to the point of almost passing out, he slammed my head on the window in his car, he physically and verbally assaulted me and as hard as it is to say and for anyone I told to understand he did rape me. His reasoning "I just wanted to see how it would feel to overpower someone. To see if I could really have that much control over u." I was 18 and stayed with.him from 17-20 yrs old. Then I was done, I had enough and left him, it wasn't easy at all. Then 3 months later I ended up with someone I graduated with, 2 weeks later we get engaged and on 9/24/14 we celebrated 20 yrs of a very happy marriage. This book brought me thru my journey even though the story itself is different. BRAVO Tara, it was a different type of book for you. I loved the entire story. It was better than I ever thought it would be. We both ended up with our princes.
The narrators were AMAZING. I love listening to a book and really liking the people telling the Story!!
Thank u for letting me know I chose the right guy!!

Droning, whining, blah, blah, blah

Sounds like a totally self-involved teenager - not sure whether the story gets better, as the narrator bored me to sleep.

YUP, THIS IS ONE HOT LISTEN

For two years Finnely had been happily in love with her High School sweetheart Colin but the rat b'stard broke her heart with a mere 'it's not working out' note and that's when Jordan swooped in, claimed, possessed and married her. But 17 years later her dreams had turned to dust, leaving her empty and knowing things must change..... but not all change is good because along with it came distress, drama and danger.

This was an enjoyable, but frustrating, listen with good narration from dual POV's - there was numbness as a marriage ended, sizzling chemistry as two once young friends reconnected, reacquainted and rekindled. Now, as experienced adults, hot hot passion, dirty thoughts and talk ignite as they bonded and then heartbreak as their HEA all went up in smoke. But I said frustrating because there was a lot of each person's internal dialogue rather than joint dialogue which sadly lost it a star for me.

Worth a credit? It was an entertaining hot contemporary listen about a sexy fireman getting a second chance at love with no cliffhanger ending and yes, IMHO, a creditworthy listen.

Good but....

The story is good and sweet but it became redundant (how many times do we have to know that she made the right decision? We get it the first time).
Narration - Jason is good as always. Ashley is so-so. She talks so slow that I have to speed up during her narration. Her timing is off too with the tendency to be overdramatic. Her male voice is great though.

An edge of your seat second chance love story!

Absolutely loved this book! Collin and Finnley are explosive! I can totally relate to Finnley as I have been in her situation. This is a definite must read! Can't wait to read the next installment!

Dirty and sweet.

Very emotional, very well written erotica. There were times when I was embarrassed listening to it, which definitely proves how hardcore it was, but there was a decent, engaging back story that kept me interested from beginning to end.

Not-so-slow burn. Hot!

Great story with a great lead-in. I love the characters, especially the hot lead fireman. The cover of the audiobook says it's the second in series, but it's the first. That caused some confusion. So glad I found this author.

MY SECOND TARA SIVEC BOOK....

This is the second Tara Sivec book I' ve listened to and certainly won' t be the last. The story was heartbreaking and the narration outstanding... the female heroine and her story very relatable and the sensuality of the two MCs was off the charts, so I enjoyed everything so much.

I just want to mention that I' ve recently fallen in love with Jason Clarke's voice that I discovered in THE GENDER GAME series by Bella Forrest and he is litteraly the best male voice I've ever heard, and he's a remarkable narrator as well, so my search for any of his work in Audible has just begun....

Great Book

In the summary its not enough for them to convince me into buying this book. So what I did was went online and did a little research on the book and get a little more information, rather then all those repeated "seventeen years/seventeen days" words which doesn't give much clue to the storyline.
Anyway, after getting enough comments from other readers and their story of the book I was convince to buy this book. I listen to it and finish it in a day. It is a great book, love it!!

Definitely worth the purchase or credit. Well to give a little spoiler, it does has a happy ending at the very end. Just wish the story would stretch out a little bit more (Just a little bit like another couple of minutes to half an hour), it feels little rush at the end.
