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.

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!!!!

I really enjoyed this book

What three words best describe Natasha Soudek’s voice?

Low and husky for her male voice. I really liked her for Parker. Her voice has just the right amount of detachment that I visualized for this character. While I would have preferred a male voice for the dual POV, I think she did really good for the male voice.

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

This book had a lot of emotional parts due to the context of the story but I couldn't pinpoint a particular one.

Any additional comments?

I really liked this book. I had this on my tbr list for a while and decided to do the kindle match and get the audio version to finally listen to it. I really liked the story even though I try to steer clear of the sad books. I was shocked by the ending but I think it was perfect for this book. I also loved the relationship between Parker and Everett. Even though they had sex very early on in the book, it took a while for them to form the emotional connection to each other which was even harder knowing what I did about Everett.
