Publisher's Summary

"In here," he said, pushing on the skin above my heart, "you're 10 below zero. And you're closer to death than I am." My name is Parker. My body is marked with scars from an attack I don't remember. I don't want to remember. I choose to live my life by observation, not through experience. While people are laughing and kissing and connecting, I'm in the corner. Watching them live. I'm indifferent to everything, everyone. The only emotion I feel with any kind of depth is annoyance, and I feel it often. A text message sent to the wrong number proves to be my undoing. His name is Everett, but I call him rude. He's pushy, he's arrogant, he crowds my personal space, and worst of all: he makes me feel. He chooses to wear all black, all the time, as if he's waiting to attend a funeral. Probably because he is. Everett is dying. And he's spending his final days living, truly living. In doing so, he's forcing me to feel, to heal. To come face to face with the demons I suppressed in my memory. He hurts me, he fulfills me, he completes me. And still, he's dying.
WARNING: This is not a story about two happy people who fall easily into love. This is a story about two broken people who find one another - and don't necessarily like each other. These characters are blunt, rude, and at times annoying. They are broken and sheltered and vulnerable.

Ten Below Zero Stars

Seriously this book, if you have it on your TBR list…move it up because wow. I am blown away at how fantastic it was. All the feels the twists, just the raw emotions. Just a must read book if I ever read one before.

Parker phew so much to say about her, without giving too much away but I will try. She is raw, she is hiding with in herself and she doesn't even know it. She has so much but she exits in life she doesn't live. She thinks of herself as indifferent but that’s so far from it.

Meeting Everett was one of the best things to have happen to her, I say one of the best because the best thing was her having the courage to open up even if she didn't realize she was doing it.

Everett is going to break your hearts, in good and bad ways. This book is going to stick with me for so long because the connection these two have it’s unreal. It’s as if they heal each other. Meant to be and all that jazz.

The audiobook is Fan-Freaking-Tastic, I wasn't sure if I was going to like the narration because it’s so raw so unemotional for most of it, but it’s perfect for the book. Natasha Soudek was Parker in my eyes. I am blown away again because it was just so damn good.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

What made the experience of listening to Ten Below Zero the most enjoyable?

ALL OF IT!!!!!!!! *Slow clapping and streaming tears!*

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think I am going to say Everett first, then Parker..oh the feels.....If you want to know why LISTEN TO THE BOOK!!! All of it I tell you!

What does Natasha Soudek bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She was so raw and gritty...you might not like her at first, but give her a good chance....she fits this story perfectly!!!!!!!!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Lots of them....but the end was wowsy wow...SWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON....I swear these romance books are ruining me....lol

Any additional comments?


It all starts with a text! Parker is a very damaged soul...and so is Everett....Parker tries not to leave the house EVER....and Everett is a self proclaimed alcoholic....together its like fire and ice...he even says she is ten degrees below zero...referring to her cold dead heart...


These 2 were merciless to each other...the passion was extraordinary....Their chemistry is intense...this book is so good....it will touch your heart so much! I love that he gave her the nickname My Precious....and the reference to Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind..This book is really raw...if you are looking for a traditional romance...don't listen...if you like rip your heart out books...this one is for you!!!!
