Publisher's Summary

Violet Winters once had it all but lost it when her husband was murdered by a criminal madman. During a cold winter night Violet has to leave her warm bed to tell her neighbor to turn the music down. And that's when she meets sinister, scarred, scarily attractive security specialist, Joe Callahan. She wants to deny it, but Violet can't beat back the hunger she feels for Joe so she gives in again and again. Feeling it himself, Joe feeds Vi's hunger, breaking his own rules to keep her in his bed. Even though Violet had only one man in her life, she's sure Joe is giving her the signals and Vi decides she's ready to take a second chance at life and, maybe, love. But Violet doesn't know the dark secrets in Joe's past, secrets so soul-wrenching, they've drained him dry. With nothing left to give, Joe's determined to live his life alone and he breaks Violet's heart. Crushed by Joe's betrayal, Violet comes to terms with the fact that, no matter what signals he gave, Joe was not theirs to win. But Violet's husband's murderer is obsessed with her and heartbreak again haunts the door of the Winters home. When it does Joe is forced to face the knowledge that he can't fight Violet's pull, she's under his skin and filled him full to bursting. Joe needs to win her back and put his life on the line to keep Violet safe. But, having had it all once, can Violet endure losing Joe?

One of KA's best - the Worst Narrator

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story is perfect, but the narration was truly awful. The narrator had a flat voice, there was no distinction between characters and strange pauses. She also made Ashley's awesome sex scenes incredibly boring.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Olivia Porter?

Any of the narrators from her other series.

Any additional comments?

This is one of my top 5 stories from Kristen. I was so happy when the series came out and couldn't wait to listen to Joe and Violet's story. I am so disappointed because a bad narrator ruins even the best book. I'll just go ahead and re-read the actual book.

Perfectly balanced

I really enjoyed this book. I did not want it to end. Emotionally charged, often leaving me conflicted. I gave to agree that this is probably my favourite Kristen Ashley. What a world she weaves. I want to go back and remind myself where some of the characters have crossed over from other series. Highly recommended if you want a story that you can immerse yourself in.

At Peace is an easy listening and enjoyable book. I started with the Colorado Mountain series and enjoyed them so it's nice to be able to move onto another series that I know I'll enjoy. In all of Kristen Ashley books, there is a reoccurring theme of violence and heartbreak but I think she writes it well enough to not be too dull. I personally found the narrator quite tolerable, although I can understand why previous reviews have said they can't stand her. She does tend to pause in odd places and you can hear the breath's exaggerated but after listening to the appalling job Kate Russell did for the Dream Man series, Olivia Porter is excellent. The only problem I had with this book were the nicknames. Joe calling Violet 'Buddy' feels wrong and very unsexy, especially with the amount of sex scenes written. I will relisten without hesitation.
