Publisher's Summary

Misfortune. Bad luck. Heartache. Devon Thorpe is no stranger to any of them.   

After devastating news, Devon’s life becomes a prison of responsibility, heartbreak, and hardship. All her dreams to leave her small town vanish. A prisoner of circumstance.

At her breaking point, Devon has a reckless moment in a diner bathroom with a blue-eyed, sexy stranger. A single encounter with him leaves a deep mark on Devon, giving her only a memory of his touch when nights are lonely, and her life becomes too much to take.  

Years later, a terrifying incident takes her and her family to Albuquerque, New Mexico, where she finds work as a server at a bar to support her mother.

Tattooed, moody, rough, brown-eyed, and sexy-as-hell Lincoln Kessler, the mysterious owner of the saloon, instantly draws Devon in. She can’t let go of the feeling that there is some strange connection between them. But the more Lincoln tries to push her away, the more determined she is to figure out the enigmatic man. One fiery kiss, and Devon realizes she should have stayed away because when their worlds collide and tragedy strikes, she recognizes they are not each other’s savior but each other’s misfortune.

Warning: This is a tear-jerking audiobook about ill-fated love, heartache, loss, and finding your way through the pain. And a lot of bad luck. It is deeply emotional with sensitive subject matter that involves dealing with a crippling mental disease.

I enjoyed this book but was expecting a tear-jerking, heartbreaking romance and that wasn't what this book was for me. Yes the situations were sad but it felt like it was missing the connection for me. The illness of the mother should have been heartbreaking but because I was just told over and over that she was sick but we didn't really get to see the relationship between the mother and daughter it was more a sad situation than heartbreaking. I think it would have been heartbreaking if we would have seen and felt the close relationship between them before her mom got sick. The way it happened in the story made her mother's illness seem more a burden then a tragedy.

That being said, I still enjoyed the book very much. I liked the chemistry between Devon & Lincoln. They were like magnets the way they were always drawn to each other. Devon's relationship with her sister was frustrating because she let her sister treat her like a doormat but I was glad the way that all worked out. The ending was sweet even if I had lots of questions about how every thing could have worked out the way it did but I remind myself this is fiction and just because I can't work it out as reality doesn't mean it's an issue.

The narration was perfect as always. Erin Mallon is amazing at single narrated audiobooks since she is so good with the Male voices. I will listened to her narrate anything!!!

First time listening to this Author and it was awesome, totally blown away did not expect it to be this amazing. Absolutely fell in love with the characters, ok maybe not Amelia 😊

I have listened to Erin Mallon and she is one of my favorite Narrators ever, she did a brilliant job with the narration hooked my from the start to end.

I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an unexpected listen, it really isn't what you think.

Wow

You guys! This book... I had to take a couple days to recover before writing my review. I absolutely loved this story! I listen to a TON of audio books so it takes a lot more than it used to to get me to cry and this one had me crying a lot! SO SO many emotions and pain and so real. It was so real I felt like I was living the story with them and that is what I love about books. I get swept away to my own reality for a few, this one did just that.
The narration was PERFECTION. Erin really knows how to nail the character she is playing. She is the BEST!

Awesome

This story was one tragedy after and another, but fate stepped in an brought two unlucky strangers in a bathroom for an encounter neither of them will for get. Years later Devon will meet another man that gives her the same feelings a the stranger she meet in that bathroom years before. This time the beautiful sexy man Lincoln was her boss. They try to fight their feelings and Devon's baby sister trying to make moves on Lincoln. There was hints though out this story that makes you guess who Lincoln really. This was an another great story by Stacey Marie Brown an Erin Mallon is one of the best narrators out there and she did an amazing job with this story. This is a must listen!
