Interesting Storyline, a bit slow however

Would you try another book from Teresa Mummert and/or Engyn Mackenzie?

I would listen to another book by both the author and narrator.

If you’ve listened to books by Teresa Mummert before, how does this one compare?

This was my first story by this author so I can't compare it to others of hers.

Have you listened to any of Engyn Mackenzie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was also my first performance of Engyn's. Overall the performance was pretty good. There was emotion in the performance and I didn't notice any mistakes.

Any additional comments?

Overall the storyline was different than most books that I purchase which was refreshing. The story was a little slow for the first half of the book so if you purchase it give it time as it does pick up and the story does get a better as it goes along. I wouldn't say all of the twists were that unexpected but some were unexpected and many listeners will be surprised. Overall I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to someone who likes a quicker listen.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher for my unbiased review.

Original - Good story

Any additional comments?

3.5 stars

Hmm… refreshing. An original and creative story-line that is different from any other book I have listened to in a while. It’s definitely not your average boy meets girl, HEA story. It's a darker, intense, edgy and twisted romance. Even if you've read the synopsis, this book is going to pull you in and take you on a entertaining and enjoyable roller-coaster ride your not expecting.

Keep your earbuds in…things get pretty hot & steamy.

The story is told between the past and present filling in the backstory and connection between Colton and Lily/Rose.

Colton is not your typical hero in any sense of the word. He's playing a dangerous game and Lily is his next target. He's going to have to make a choice that will come with a heavy price for both of them.

Warning…. the main character Lily was molested repeatedly by her stepfather. This may be a trigger for some listeners.

Engyn Mackenzie did a good job with the narration. This is the first time I have heard him narrate a book. Nice voice easy to listen to for long periods of time. Good character voices. Both male and female. There were a few times the narration didn't flow smoothly. He was able to make the characters, their emotions and the story to come to life. Overall very enjoyable.
