Publisher's Summary

I travel through life dancing.

All I ever wanted to do was dance, as did my best friend. We'd made so many plans together, but one night an explosion changed it all. Only one of us survived, and I promised myself I'd succeed for us both. And I did, until an accident almost ruined my career, but Maze came back into my life when I needed him most. He pulled me out of the depths of my despair. But could I save him now?

I travel through life fighting.

It had always been Ivy; from the first moment I saw her leaping through the air like she had wings to lift her from the ground. But she was my dream, something I wanted more than anything else in my life. I promised myself I would stay away from her. Violence followed me everywhere and I tried to keep her far away from it. She was my point of illumination in the dark tumultuous world I lived in. But I could not stay away from her. Not when I knew she needed me. As much as I needed her. But could she accept me as I am?

Enjoyable Audiobook

Good story, hot sexy scenes and ok narrator. The story was different which is nice change and the writing was good . The narration was just ok, he was a little flat but wasn't bad. I think the story needed just a little more meat. I did really enjoy it, I just wish it had more detail and had been longer. Beware of the ending ;) thank goodness book 2 is already out!

Very good!

This is a good listen. The characters, though young, are very mature. I really appreciate the author being able to ascribe that to them. It's my first time listening to this author and s/he has respected the intelligence of the readership. First class in my book. Now I must listen to part 2.

Cliffhanger

I wish I'd known that this had a cliffhanger before I started listening to it; guess I should have read some reviews first. I'm disappointed that the cliffhanger wasn't disclosed in the books blurb .

Sad story

There was down feeling to most of this story. I prefer a more upbeat or exciting tale. The romance was slow and not very interesting . I stopped listening. May return later to finish?!?

Don't Do It!!

Please continue to scroll in your search for a good audio book. This ain't it! The narrator wasn't THAT bad; story had promise, but fell flat. It's an "Eh.." for me.

An Interesting New Adult Story

4 Stars / 2 Steam Fans This was a fun, sweet, with a little bit of sexy story. Ivy and Maze meet when they are vacationing and have an instant attraction; however, Ivy is a teenager and Maze is getting ready to move around the world then tragedy strikes. Maze and Ivy go their separate ways until Maze seeks out a reconnection with Ivy years later. Secrets are revealed and reconnections are made. This story was very much a new adult story by a black author that I had never read anything from. This book was read for #blackathon challenge - Hear Us and #romancegenreathon. This specific video review will be included in the January/February 2019 wrap up. For other video book reviews check out my YouTube Channel: Steph's Romance Book Talk.

Great

I really liked this book and would recommend this book. I wish this book was a movie or TV show. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. I wish this author didn't use God's name in vain. You don't have to use " GD " to have a great book. I would have given it 5 stars if not for that. I can't wait to listen to book 2.

TV Movie

The storyline is very good and sexy and fun I can see this as a Amazon movie or Interdependent movie the book is about love and things you want to do or not how to open up to people who are different from you
