Publisher's Summary

Liam has been so many people that he can hardly remember who he really is. Having to walk away from the woman he loved to keep her safe, he wonders if he will ever be able to have a normal life. With the trial starting in a couple weeks, all he can wish for is to put his demons and secrets in the past.

When Finn’s Grams gets sick, she comes home to care for the woman who raised her as her own. But, when her Grams dies, she says goodbye to the only home she has ever felt safe in, but with a new job on the West Coast waiting for her, she packs the few things she has in Rose Red, her beloved car that Grams gave her and says goodbye to her past ghosts. She just had to do one last thing before she left. Another blind date. Argh.

When Finn mistakes Liam for the blind date her BFF Marley fixed her up on, she realizes her friend finally got this one right. With his dark shaggy hair, crooked smile, and his imperfect perfect teeth, he was beyond beautiful, but she was leaving town in the morning, and she doesn’t do one-night stands. Although, for him, she might reconsider.

As Finn walked into the restaurant, Liam couldn’t take his eyes off her, and when she suddenly sat down in front of him, he couldn’t believe his luck. They laughed and talked as if they had always known each other, but, when her phone rang, it all comes crashing down, literally. 

Liam couldn’t get the mysterious woman out of his head. He knew he could never be with her. He’s leaving to testify in the morning, and God only knows if he will make it back alive. 

Finding out that the man in front of her wasn’t her blind date, Finn started to question her state of mind. She really liked Tom, hell, he wasn’t Tom, he was an impostor. Why didn’t he tell her he wasn’t her date? She should have known better than to think Marley would set her up with someone like him. He was perfect. Can life get any worse? But with him, it was the first time in a long time that she felt safe, unafraid, and normal.

A Must Read!

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review. Although this can be read as a standalone, believe me you will want to read book one to gain a better understanding of the characters. Both of these books are fantastic. The author has created very complex yet well developed characters. Liam has been in the witness protection program so long that I'm surprised that he can remember his name. We see a man that yearns for a woman in his life but his mentally unbalanced twin brother has killed or tried to kill every woman that he loved. Mark using Liam 's name also got involved with dangerous men who are now trying to kill Liam. Your heart will ache for Liam. Finn is a survivor and a strong kickass woman. There is instant chemistry between them and the listener can't help but cheer them on. This story contains suspense, angst, redemption, forgiveness, terror, angelic help from Grams, sensual love scenes, and an unlikely warrior to the rescue. Like the first book this one has many twists and turns. Some you will see coming and some will be surprising. Kudos to SM Stryker for another winning story.

The narrator gives an outstanding performance of portraying the emotions and personalities of these characters and bringing them to life. He brings the listener right into the story. He makes the story flow smoothly thereby creating a listening pleasure. I HIGHLY recommend this Audible book and series.

Good addition to the series

Even though it appears not to stated, I feel you need to read Whispers In The Wind first. I’d advise it so you know the background of the characters from there. This is the story of Liam (Maison, Matthew). He has not had an easy life and his twin brother didn’t help.

Finn doesn’t appear to have much luck in the relationship game either. When she mistakes Liam for a blind date they instantly click. Even with all the circumstances facing them they seem to be destined to be thrown together. Finn throws more than a few surprises to the story. Liam adds his desire for a normal life. Mark appears again and his part is totally different than I expected.

This is a good addition to the series. I didn’t feel it wasn’t quite as emotional as the first story but maybe because there was not the love triangle. The only problem I had was while the narrator did a great job I kept focusing on the part where I couldn’t tell if he called Callie, Callie or Kelly. I don’t know why I focused on that but it just was one thing that caused me to stop. I would recommend this series. There is plenty that held my attention and the ending was not quite what I expected.

Great Story & Listen🎧 Thrilling & Heartfelt!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it is well written and well told with interesting storylines that are captivating from start to end. The characters are complex and well developed. S.M. Stryker has a wonderful writing style, her stories and characters are realistic and easy to relate to. I adored the two lead characters and some of the secondary characters as well. I loved how Finn and Liam first meet, she mistaking him for her blind date. The two really hit it off then but she flees when she fins out he was not her intended date. But fate had a different plan for them, they were both leaving for Oregon the next day and circumstances arise where they meet by chance once again and they wind up traveling to Oregon together. I loved the chemistry between these two, her understanding of his situation and he trusting her enough to tell him. Liam’s life has not been a picnic for the past few years and while he hopes one day the madness will end and he could live his life, he knows that will not happen. But he has Finn now and she is brave and determined to end it all for him. A lot goes on in this book, it is well plotted with plenty of drama, some angst, action, twists, thrilling suspense, some heartfelt moments and a wonderful romance. S.M. Stryker, thank you for another great story.

I listened to the Audible edition, Nicholas Donald Malcolm does a great job portraying the characters and bringing them and their story to life. He is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for a great listen🎧

Liam

A beautiful love story filled with loss and sadness and a second chance for some. From
gutwrenching to heartwarming and healing old hurts to move forward. Raw. intense, gripping. This one will stay with me! The narrator did an excellent job. I voluntarily listened to this and am giving an honest review.

Dramatic

I was not the biggest fan of this book. It is a sequel and I had not read the first book.

The narrator was fairly good, though he came off as kind of gravelly in a way that I didn't love, though others may enjoy that.

There were a lot of instances throughout this book that I just kept thinking about how impossible they were, or at least how unlikely. Everything was dramatic, it even has an "evil" twin, a psychic, and some religion thrown in sporadically. I personally had a hard time suspending reality for this book.

I couldn't finish and stopped with just under an hour left. I really hope others are into it, but it just wasn't my cup of tea.

Insta-Love

So I was a bit frustrated to find out this was part of a series as it’s not listed in the synopsis or within the title to let the reader know, I only found out from reading other reviews after the fact. However, with that said it did stand up on its own and could be read as such.

I loved the beginning of this story. Heroine is in a pretty bad life slump and agrees to go out on a blind date set up by her best friend. She goes to the date and the guy is perfect. There is immediate attraction. They have great conversation and everything is going well. Until her friend calls her and asks why she stood her blind date up! Come to find out mystery date just happened to be eating alone and couldn’t seem to interrupt her in the beginning and then he didn’t WANT to.

However, as the story moves on it goes from this spectacular first date to this sugar sweet, unrealistic insta-love to which hero and heroine are admitting their love for one another days later and the storyline just lost me, sadly.

Enjoyable

I really enjoyed this story and particularly liked all the action. The narration by Nicholas was very good if a little rushed at times.

On the whole a good solid story that I would recommend.

Emotional!

This was an excellent listen; it's well-written, emotionally charged, and a heartwrenching romance. I was wholly immersed in the story. The characters are complex, multifaceted, and utterly captivating.

The narration by Donald Malcolm is excellent. He emulated the characters' emotions, bringing the story to life. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.
