Publisher's Summary

Best Inspirational Novel of the Year Nominee for 2012 RONE Award

The very moment Derrick meets Sarah, he realizes he has a reason to live. Sarah sees only an unshaven, tough kid covered with tattoos and shuts down every advance.

Sarah Thomas has no memory of her broken young life leading up to the tragic murder of her mother. Her memory begins the morning she wakes in the home of her loving adoptive parents. She doesn't even know her sisters exist until her 15th year. She learns to love her siblings, but always feels a little out of place in their presence.

A benevolent billionaire offers Derrick DiNunzio a home and an education. Fresh off the streets and rescued from a criminal future, Derrick sheds his old life. He trades his ripped leather jacket for silk suits; dealing drugs for mentoring at-risk youth; lock picking and back-door jobs for the rigors of mountain climbing and hotel management.

Sarah cannot seem to see beyond the past Derrick left behind...until one day she does. When they finally come together, an indictment threatens their future. Now the heat is on. Will Sarah finally set aside her prejudices and open her heart to true love, or will the long forgotten past tear them apart forever?

Story good/ WAY too many audio edits

If you liked the 1st 3 books in this series as I did, this book will not disappoint! However, as much as I enjoyed Gene Rowley’s voice, tone, and inflections, he has WAY too many audio edits! It was very distracting to be listening and get into the story only to be jolted by a complete change in the audio sound- as if he was in the bottom of a tin well- & then back again to the normal sound.
I recognize that edits must happen from time to time, and there were a few in the first three books that I was able to ignore, but in this time those annoying audio edits were quite often and all throughout the book to the end.
Hopefully it won’t be too distracting for you because the storyline was good and brought the series to a nice conclusion.
