This is a mediocre story of unethical therapists. One of the major things I disliked was the lengthy portion of the story that's just inner monologue. It starts with Grant's story at the start and lasts a little over 2hrs, largely in the form of an inner monologue. Then the short tale of Stan followed by the lengthy story of Renata, which is another 2 hrs. or so, and it's almost all inner monologue as well. That's 4 hours!! So the primary couple doesn't even meet until more than 4hrs into a 9+ hr tale. It's unfortunate that inner monologues is the only way the author new how to reveal who Grant and Renata are.
In a nutshell, this book is a failed attempt at depth. The writer simply doesn't have the writing chops to pull it off. The story would've been better without the attempt; it then may have had less unwarranted & unnecessary drama and less over-wrought statements. And the cherry on top is the poorly-done French accent the narrator provides.
After dozing, I woke up and the story had finished running. I was grateful and didn't look back. I don't care what happened to anyone in the story and can't stand giving it any more of my time.

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author in exchange for an unbiased review.
There is just SOMETHING about the character of André Chevalier, the sex therapist and coach, and then add the voice given to him by Roberto Scarlato. Mmmmm, Mmmmm, Good. He handles his damaged clients with the insight of a god. In this book, they are Renata and Grant. He pairs the small and timid girl with an abused giant of a man. How can a mouse heal a monster and a monster heal a mouse? Only André knows.
As mentioned, Roberto is an excellent narrator. He is up there at the top and doesn’t disappoint.
TWO THUMBS UP!
