First off I did enjoy most of this book. It's high on the drama and some of the characters are not very likable. Fortunately Adriana the heroine of this story is a admirable character with tons of strength. After loosing so many people in her family from various deaths.. It's a wonder this woman didn't fall apart. Her evil witch of a sister Alexis wasn't a tragic loss for me.
But dealing with all this tragedy on her own was a hard to listen to.
I'm on the fence with Blake he fakes his own death stays gone for 4 year's all while constantly professing his love for Adriana. I feel like I need a pair of boots to navigate my way through all of Blake's far fetched BS. I mean I get why he left, but come on.. if he loved Adriana so much, why didn't he come back when she really needed him? I feel like he had opportunitie's that he just didn't take. And then I have to address the way he came back in her life well, that was a bit of a unrealistic 💊 to swallow. The chances of a situation in real life happening this way is probably about the same chance you have of winning the lottery lol. For a while the only good thing Blake had in his favor was the fact that he was celibate while he was away.
Though it was hard for me to warm up to Blake, I will say that what his character lacked in compassion for his wife he more than made up for between the sheets lol. To be so melancholy and dramatic this book did have some pretty steamy scenes in it (I'm certainly not complaining about that). Blake's uber hot bedroom antics definitely earned him a few brownie points with me. Yeah.. my ears were seduced by the sex and it made me want to foget what I didn't like about his character.
The narration was great! Lacy And Logan did a very good job acting out the characters with plenty of emotion and feeling. Lacy has a soft pleasant voice while Logan's is deep and sexy they complement each other perfectly.
This is my first Kathy Coopmans book though, I didn't care for all the characters.. I do like her writing style and will definitely be buying more of her book's in the future. I own a ton of book's and somehow this talented author had escaped my attention. I was gifted this book in exchange for my honest review. I wish we would have got more out of the epilogue, but I still think it was worth the time spent listening.

This was a really good second chance romance which is told in dual POVs.
This is a story about loss and finding the strength to deal with what life throws at you. This is also a story is about hope, forgiveness and betrayal.
I really liked the chemistry between Adriana and Blake and Logan McAllister & Lacy Laurel did a great job narrating and conveying this.

This is a very good story, I like this author and intend to read and listen to more of her work. The presenters are excellent, I always prefer a male and female presenter reading but I know that is not always possible due to cost. In this case having both works really well and makes all the difference.
