Publisher's Summary

On the wrong side of 30, Austin Montgomery is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, his inked sleeves and scruffy beard isn’t the suave business appearance some women crave. Only finding a woman who can deal with his job, as a tattoo artist and owner of Montgomery Ink, his seven meddling siblings, and his own gruff attitude won’t be easy.
Finding a man is the last thing on Sierra Elder’s mind. A recent transplant to Denver, her focus is on opening her own boutique. Wanting to cover up scars that run deeper than her flesh, she finds in Austin a man that truly gets to her—in more ways than one.
Although wary, they embark on a slow, tempestuous burn of a relationship. When blasts from both their pasts intrude on their present, however, it will take more than a promise of what could be to keep them together.

HO HUM.... IT'S A 40/60 LISTEN

This is one of those listens that has you scratching your head because there were parts I hated, parts I thought "oh come on" and parts I liked so at the end I was left wondering just what exactly my feelings were on this. And these listens are the hardest ones to review.

My dislikes.... one minute the H/H hate each other, the next day they go out to dinner and talk about a mutual Sub/Dom BDSM relationship and go straight back home and have hot sex (me thinks surely not a first date conversation!) dual POV's. There were missing time periods, glossed over events and I had a big question as to why the new person couldn't of brought all his stuff with him (I don't want to give any spoilers).

My likes.... The family dynamics were good and once I got passed all the sex (which I never thought I'd say) there was a decent story in the end when the whole family pulled together after a shocking life altering twist for the two lovers. Lots of characters with sub plots told from their own POV's which made it interesting. Very sexy narration.

Worth a credit? Will this teach me not to judge a book by its cover? nope.... it's hot. I MAY give the second book in the series a try I'm undecided. As to the credit well I would rather of got this while on sale.... but I won't be asking for my credit back.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

first and last ok. middle sucked.

Would you try another book from Carrie Ann Ryan and/or Gregory Salinas?

Maybe, if I could be sure that I wasn't going to skip through pages of being educated about dom/sub. Probably wouldn't listen to Gregory Salinas.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I was most interested in discovering the heroines big secret. It was the only thing that kept me reading. I was least interested in the ad nauseam discussion of dom/sub. I feel like If I am really into that (which I am not) incorporate it into the story in way that is sexy to people who like it. If I want to learn about it I will go read "Domination for Dummies," or something. If I am not into are not going to convince me by pontificating about it in a romance novel.

What three words best describe Gregory Salinas’s voice?

cyborg reading "male-love-interest." I tend to avoid reading novels where a main character is a woman read by a man...It normally just doesn't work for me. Strangely in this novel I like him reading ALL of the characters (even the women) better than the main male love interest. I just hated it.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?


Any additional comments?

My additional comment is not specifically about this book in particular. I don't know where else to comment. Maybe audible will hear me. I can't be the only one who really wishes that they would start cleaning up the categories to make them easier to find what interests us. I choose romance because I am interested in the main focus being the relationship of the main couple and how they deal with whatever mystery, paranormal or other conflict that is going on. If I wanted pages and pages of push the envelope sex I would choose erotica or porn. If I wanted to learn how to participate in certain lifestyles I would buy how-to books. If I wanted to feel justified in my lifestyle I would buy essays or nonfiction. I am not into threesome, bdsm, bondage, or homosexuality... I don't care if audible has them. I just wish I could easily figure out whether these are a main focus of the book so that I can identify if this is something I would enjoy reading. I am tired of plowing through endless books and finding one that seems interesting only to realize at the last minute that it is about something that I don't care to read about. ..I would think that people who appreciate those things would like it too.... If not maybe they could add a category for minimal, tasteful, vanilla hetero sex when appropriate to an other wise well written story....
