Publisher's Summary

In this dangerously sexy novel from the New York Times best-selling author of Find You in the Dark, a straight-laced college student meets a handsome but enigmatic stranger who lures her into an underground club scene, where she finds it difficult to resist temptation.

Aubrey Duncan understands loss. She knows what rock bottom looks like, and she is determined to crawl back up to the top after the sudden death of her younger sister. She blames herself for her part in the tragedy, convinced that she could have done something, anything, to help her.

In her effort to gain redemption, Aubrey starts fresh at Longwood University and facilitates an addiction support group, hoping she can support someone else in the way she failed her sister. But what she doesn't count on is an all-consuming fascination with group member Maxx Demelo, a gorgeous, blond, blue-eyed enigma who hides dark secrets behind a carefully constructed mask. He only reveals what he wants others to see. But Aubrey glimpses another Maxx hidden below the surface - a Maxx who is drowning in his own personal hell.

As Aubrey and Maxx develop an attraction too intense to ignore, he pulls her into the dark underbelly of the city club scene, where she is torn by her desire to save him and an inexplicable urge to join him in his downward spiral. Worst of all, she is beginning to love everything she should run away from - a man who threatens to ignite in her a fire that could burn her alive.

Difficult listen

The female readers voice is a very annoying sound. It makes listening to this depressing story even worse.

A very Dark novel about bad habits and Love.

This is a very well written book that deeply delves into the seedy side of nightclub life. As seen by collage aged young people looking for ways to escape their lives. And a second chance to do the right thing.

HORRIBLE narration

The storyline was fine, but I couldn’t get past the horrendous narration by Shaina Thibodeaux.

At best, it was annoying. At worst, it was like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Soooooo

I had a hard time getting started, almost gave up. 3 times I restarted. Then I thought ok one more try. I cleared my mind and let myself absorb the words. All I can say now is WOW. This book grab my heart, mind and soul. It’s a matter a minutes and I have the sequel downloaded to start.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY

A book has to be really bad for me to write a review. The performance category got 3 stars because the female was not great but the male was fantastic, so I split the difference.

As far as the story goes, without giving too much away, you meet two people who are complete idiots and stay idiots throughout the entire story. There is no real closure at the end. You watch the female character go throughout the book doing the complete opposite of what she claims to hate. The male character at least is true to form for a drug addict. All in all it was just a very long and BORING story that really had nothing to make you feel like it was worth it!.

Honestly, if I could, I would give the story zero stars.

Very Disappointing Ending!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one.

Has Lead Me Not turned you off from other books in this genre?

no, but definitely by this author

Would you be willing to try another one of Shayna Thibodeaux and Sebastian York ’s performances?

Oh yes! Love them!

What character would you cut from Lead Me Not?

All of them!

Any additional comments?

Too long, too repetitive, sad i invested over 10 hours of my life listening to this book!
