Great Narration!

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel do an outstanding job with the narration of this romantic suspense. Their voices for each of the characters are spot on and their emotions and inflections make it a very enjoyable listening experience. Amber has had a rough time with her life since running away from home at eighteen. Her dreams of becoming a teacher were shattered when she meets Hunter. He abuses her and she must eventually flee to save the life she of her unborn child. She finds help from her childhood friend Nate and together they must find a way to stay alive as Hunter closes in. The story is exciting and emotional in spots; another enjoyable story from Rachelle Ayala. I received a free copy and am providing an unbiased review.

Will the prodigal daughter be welcomed home?

This author always weaves the theme of forgiveness through her books, and this was no exception. The story reminds me of the prodigal son, except this is a girl, and she runs away from her family. That said, like the prodigal son, Amber returns home after a couple of years, mainly because her beloved grandma is dying, but hoping for reconciliation with her family. She returns with lots of baggage...figuratively. You see, Amber was picked up by a fur trapper when she ran away, and was all but held hostage for a year. Since she was from a sheltered home...daughter of a ultra conservative pastor...the 'real' world took some getting used to. When Amber became pregnant, the fur trapper, Hunter, took her to have an abortion, but she ran away. Now she's returned home, with a newborn and nowhere to go. She enlists the help of her childhood friend, Nate, who's a barkeeper and innkeeper. How will Nate react when he realizes that Amber has a baby? Will he ignore small town gossip or send her away? To add some drama...the fur trapper is in town hunting for Amber...will he force her to return to the mountains with him? Lots of action and self examination packed into this relatively short story. The ending was perfect...just the HEA needed after all that Amber has endured. As always, the narration team does an phenomenal job pulling you into the story.
I accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Another winner from the author and narrator

I’m not surprised that Rachelle wrote another winner. This one shattered your heart on life , family and the human race. But like always Rachelle brought it all back together again. The team of Tor Thom and Charley did a fantastic work. They did all the characters parts right on the voices were clear .

What happens when a female decides to leave home, Amber has no choice but to run . Amber runs with her 3 month old son. Why ? Her ex boyfriend Hunter is abusing her. Tragedy sends Amber back home and before she knows it she’s in hunter eye. Eventually she asks Nate for help. Nate agrees
Nate and his mom run a hotel with a bar . When Amber asks for help Nate readily agrees . Nate had feelings for Amber before she ran.
Both Nate and Amber are stuck in an ice storm will Hunter track them down or will they find a way

Great romantic suspense!

Every time I listen to Rachelle Ayala, I know I am in for a treat. A new adult story of finding yourself despite your circumstances, Ayala has incorporated love and suspense into the web. Amber has left home to flee her overbearing parents and find her freedom. Little did she know Hunter, the man that picks her up would be her nightmare. She is able to escape and when she finds out her Grandmother is sick, she travels home to say her goodbye. What she doesn't know is Hunter, is still looking for her. Seeking help from her friend Nate, she attempts to stay hidden and safe. Can Nate keep her safe from Hunter? Will secrets be revealed? In true Ayala fashion, I took away a few lessons embedded into this gem of a story along with a sweet romance, high thrills and an ice storm to cripple any town!

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel are a team able to narrate any genre given to them. With this story, the inflections of both narrators gave us the fear of the hunt along with young and unconditional love. Their ability to draw us in and make us see and feel the story is impeccable creating a magnificent listen.

She only wants love and freedom

Amber McKay only wants to be free, live her life her way, not under the restraints of her parents, so she runs. Only she runs into the arms of a dangerous man and he is forcing her to give up something precious to her. She knows that can’t happen, and runs again. Amber finds she must return to the town she has fled, her grandmother is dying and she needs to say goodbye. There is only one person she left behind that she feels will help, Nate Riley, but can she lie to Nate keep her secrets, get in and out of town without being discovered? Then there is her heart she gave to Nate years ago, what of it? Then there is also the evil Hunter Dixon that wants her back no matter what the price.
Lies, deception, intrigue, have all been spun into this story the author Rachelle Ayala has captured along with love and freedom this young woman wants to possess.
Thank you Rachelle, Tor Thom and Charley Ongel for gifting me this at the edge of your seat audible book. Tor and Charley you did an excellent job in your narration, as always.

Great Story!

This was written with passion of what is right and wrong! Tor Thom and Charley Ongel are wonderful narrators! They bring it to life.
Amber’s father was a fire and brimstone preacher. As soon as she could, she left town hitching a ride with a very unsavory man. When she got pregnant, he took her to a clinic to get an abortion. She escaped out the back door. Nate owns the bar in her hometown and her family clashes with his. When she turns up back home with the baby, Nate helps her. Then things get into a real mess! Great listen!

The thrill is in the chase ...

Her heart lead her into danger, will his love rescue her from the fall out? Ms. Ayala has conquered the world of romance with her inspiring tales of heartwarming happily ever afters. Hide my Heart detours in a new direction. A chilling one, but no less emotional. Amber wanted her independence. What she got was a life on the run with a mad man hot on her trail. Nate wanted someone to love. A life of his own. What he got was family responsibility. When a single mother with a ton of baggage catches his eye, will his love be enough to rescue them both? The thrill is in the chase, but the hope is still there to stir up the heart.
