Publisher's Summary

If Teddy's dark secret is discovered, even her wealth and good looks won't save her.

When Asher Rose met Teddy King, he knew it'd be trouble, but it was just the kind of trouble he didn't mind falling in. What he hadn't planned on was falling hard for the girl no one could tame.

Strap yourself in for a sexy ride fill of intensity and disaster that spirals all the way down.

Note: This is the second edition of this title. It features bonus chapters that were not featured in its first edition. It is also part one of a new adult I/R romance. Suggested for mature audiences due to its explicit sex and moderate drug use.

    "Torn on How to Rate This Audiobook"

    “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

    A woman who doesn't want a permanent relationship as she is battling health issues. Two men, friends, who are both interested in this woman.

    One man has known her longer and can't seem to make up his mind to what depth he wants their relationship. She just wants some friends with benefits, and very little benefits. His friend, hooks up behind the first man's back with her and feels all kinds of guilt but becomes move and move involved.

    The use of drugs is prevalent in the girls and second man's relationship but it becomes apparent for her it is primarily for medical reasons.

    The portion of the story I have issues with is the immaturity of all involved...it made it hard for me to like the characters...but I liked the 'couple' a little more towards the ending, a cliffhanger where I actually had sympathy for two of the characters.

    The narrators did an excellent job..I happily listen to them again.

    I'm not sure I can say who would like this story...it could be worth a shot, but 50-50 whether you like it or not..then of course it's a cliffhanger

    "EMOTIONAL JUNGLE OF LIFE, LOVE & FRIENDSHIPS"
    Any additional comments?

    I was generously provided this audiobook at no charge by the author in exchange for an unbiased review.

    It's a difficult task to create a complex world in under 5 hours but G. L. Thomas accomplished just that. Not only does she script a believable love triangle, she adds the fight against cancer, cultural and multicultural elements, social class, and the vulnerability of friendships.

    Teddy comes from a cold but well-to-do family. She's fighting cancer and manages her pain with weed. On her good days, she only wants to feel alive and safe. Reggie has occasionally filled that need but is a player, not wanting a relationship. Through him she meets tattooed & pierced Asher and their attraction is instant. Asher and Teddy become closer, keeping their relationship secret in order to keep friendships intact. Reggie senses her distance and reconsiders the strength of his attraction, deciding he was wrong and wants to pursue a relationship. There begins the deceit, the pain, and the losses as they navigate friendships and love.

    My one and only complaint is the cliffhanger. I have listened to all three books so far and wish this would have been one long, delicious HEA book. Nonetheless, I love it.

    TWO THUMBS UP!

    "R*THS: Reader That Has Stopped"

    While this may be presented as a "love triangle", there's an obvious connection between the two main characters that pushes the third toward simply being a secondary, though major, character. It's all about Teddy and Asher. It took me a long while into this book to begin sympathizing with Teddy. She was too cold and closed off, and I couldn't get a read on her character. Then in the final third of the book, her vulnerability is exposed and I was just getting into the story when BOOM! along comes the cliffhanger.

    This audiobook has dual narration and is well produced. While the narrators did a good job, the voices they each used for Reggie were remarkably distinct. I've never noticed this before in other books when two people are voicing the same character but it really pulled me out of the story a few times. It actually impacted my perception of the character.

    I'm not sure yet whether I’m intrigued enough to listen to the next book. If it would be like the end of this book, absolutely but I'm too afraid it'll be like the beginning. I think this reader will stop here.

    "Really loved this story"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Asher. He was a great guy. He was loyal and caring and wore his heart on his sleeve.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Aundrea Mitchell and Logan McAllister ?

    Yes. I liked Aundrea Mitchell but she narrates a little too fast. I like Logan McAllister too. This was my first book from either but wont be my last.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this book. I haven't read another book I could compare it with. It was about regular people with real issues. I had a few issues with Teddy but considering her situation I let it slide. I liked the romance between Teddy and Asher. I would definetely recommend this book and look forward to listening to the next one.

    Story
    "Teddy's a bear!"

    Teddy King has two men on a string, Reggie and Teddy have an open relationship that neither wants and when Teddy meets Asher Rose she does some serious juggling, but it seems Asher may be coming out on top, if they can both stop denying their true feelings and if Teddy can come clean about her serious health issue.

    This was an interesting listen for me. At the beginning I found Teddy a totally unsympathetic character, she seemed cold and indifferent to all who come into contact with her, I’m not sure why either man is enamored with Teddy. And I found the constant use of drugs problematic, especially given Teddy’s condition.

    As a reader, I enjoy stories where the characters are less than perfect, I find it makes the story more believable and feels more real. The problem I have with this story? Teddy’s feeling and emotions don’t translate to the written page so I felt no connection to her character.

    About halfway through this audiobook, It seemed author GL Tomas, finally fleshed out Teddy’s character and I found the second half of this audiobook much more enjoyable. And by the end, I was anxious to hear what would happen next. This 4 ½ hour audiobook has the dreaded cliffhanger, but I’m intrigued enough to put the next installment on my watch list.

    The audiobook has dual narration by Aundrea Mitchell and Logan McAllister and both did a good job in this well-produced audiobook. The one issue was Reggie’s character was voiced so completely different depending on whether Aundrea or Logan was voicing him. Now of course, when you have two different sexes voicing the same character, there are bound to be differences. But, the differences were not just in the depth of Reggie’s voice, but also the tone, Aundrea made him sound wimpy and whiny and Logan made him sound gruff and aloof. I found the change distracting.

    That being said, I enjoyed both Aundrea Mitchell and Logan McAllister’s readings and I would definitely listen to another audiobook by either narrator!

    This audiobook was gifted to me exchange for an unbiased review!

    "A Hohum story"

    I got this ARC book from the author. I did not like the basic story although the narration was good. There was romance and a cliffhanger. More sex than romance and I did not like the cheating. I understand the drug use for medical reasons but this story did not resonate with what I think of as a romance story. Lots of sex, though.

    Any additional comments?

    Loved it, the main characters have chemistry, which is needed for erotica. I loved how this was erotica but still dealt with severe issues such as cancer. Shows that no matter how hard life is you can still get that happy ending, with lots of sex.

    "Gritty and a bit depressing"

    “I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”

    At first this book seemed like just a string of hook-ups, drugs, and lots of drinking…parties, sex, more drinking, more drugs. It's gritty and the sex is very graphic, but there is little emotional depth. The story didn't seems to have much of a plot and there was absolutely zero romance. I couldn't relate to any of the characters. Then, about half-way through, when Teddy goes to the hospital, I started to see the beginnings of a plot and a real story, and then it rushed toward the cliff-hanger ending, with Teddy just going away, leaving Asher in the dust. Again, no connection between them, no talking about the situation...

    I had a hard time enjoying this audiobook. I understand that Teddy has a significant health issue, but I didn't find anything sympathetic about her behavior. She rails at Reggie that it's always about what she can so for him...but she is exactly the same. Selfish and Self-centered. Asher was the only character I truly liked. I felt sorry for him, though, because he became so sweet and caring toward Teddy, and yet she kept stringing him along. There was a genuine lack of communication in general between the characters and no actual talking things out.

    The narration was okay and suited the story.

    I am interested to know how the story ends, but if the second book is like this one, and longer to boot, I am not sure I can stomach another 6 hours of Teddy feeling sorry for herself and selfishly unwilling to decide to commit to either of the two guys. I'm on the fence about this one. If you like gritty, real-life stories, this might be a book/audiobook for you, but if you are looking for sweet, heart-felt romance, you won't find it here.

    "Good narration"

    The narration of this book was surprisingly good. You could hear the dialects of the characters through the narration of Aundrea and Logan. The book however was not what I was expecting. I didn't realize how filled with drugs the storyline would be. And that took away from the story in my opinion.

    "Love Triangle"
    Any additional comments?

    Teddy comes from a well-to-do family, has a beautiful home and has never worked. She is hiding the fact that she is battling cancer and tries to live every good day to the fullest. She and Reggie have a "friends with benefits" relationship and neither of them wants more. When she meets his friend Asher, the attraction is immediate. Asher's conscience begins to bother him when he finds out that Reggie is trying to pursue Teddy for a real relationship and he breaks things off with Teddy to preserve his friendship with Reggie.Teddy becomes more and more distant as her disease progresses, avoiding both men.

    F*THS was an interesting story with many facets but the frequent drug use bothered me a bit. Asher was my favorite character because he seemed to be the most mature, caring and honest of the three. After battling cancer off and on for years, I could understand Teddy's commitment issues. I liked the dual narration and it was well performed. This is Book 1 of a three book series and ends in a cliffhanger. I would recommend F*THS.

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.
