Wow, this, is a really hard review for me to do. Liked the plot, even though it was predictable. The narration was really hard for me, Abby C had way to much angst in her voice ALL the time so when it was needed for the story line it didn't really make an impression. Sean wasn't bad either but did not fit the character, every sentence felt like a graph, high to low high to low he would be better suited for a story about a PI in the thirties or something. These guys need a Phil G with the deep sexy voice. I felt the females were just a bit too high school for being thirty. Izzy was the worst, the love of your life, made plain multiple times, walks back into your life and you want to shun him and not get any answers, wow I don't think so. I really would like to go to the next book but not sure I can get thru another several hours with these narrators. I will most likely try, just to see if all the soft, breathy I'm so hurt voice is carried over to the next story. If so it will be my last I will buy the kindle edition.

After being notified that her true luv (a Marine) is dead, Izzy eventually marries someone else. This story starts w/ the final straw to that disastrous, abusive marriage... then steps straight to a few yrs later when her hunky BFF invites a few of his business partners/hot ex-marine buddies to a bar to help celebrate her bday... & one of them happens to be her giant broad- shouldered brooding ex-LUV... (who's just a wee bit annoyed w/ her for not waiting on him.)
I could have done without half of the crying & drama overkill n the first half... (some serious "eye poke" moments to someone who was raised in a low drama/"rub some dirt on it" household.) But other then that... It was HOT! The sex scenes were very well written & you could always tell they liked it... A LOT. LOL ;) The group of Marine/Alpha's were gruffly protective & loving. Great story!
Now... I've got to go buy the next one... (Sshh... Don't tell my husband...;)

The narrator read the heroine as having no backbone. I know the character has been through some trials, but she is made out to be insipid and wet. What the main hero actually sees in her is beyond belief - nothing to recommend her. When I read the books to me the heroine had some spark and humour -the reading had nothing.
Really wished that I read the book instead of listening to it narrator at times she was really bad and very child like.
