Any additional comments?
I'm prefacing with saying it's a cliffhanger. Not a bad one where it just ends mid sentence, but still one that you know another book is coming.
This review is a hard one for me and I'll try to do it without spoilers.
Sabrina meets Donovan and Weston in college and through 2 situations out of her control, she leaves college and also leaves both men hanging... only in very different ways. 10 years later she runs into Weston and takes a job from him, putting her in both men's paths again.
Weston is quickly taken out of the picture for Sabrina, leaving her to contend with Donovan. They have a very sordid relationship, filled with a push and pull like no other I have read.
This is what made me hate the book. I spent 75% of the audio wanting to bang my head against a wall and also just shaking my head, "why?". It's frustrating. Sabrina is, in my opinion, a weak and stupid woman. I don't think she has the self preservation needed to get herself through life successfully. And I'm not talking about her sexual proclivities. I know some people will take issue with rape fantasy, so heads up. It's in there. But that's not what made me shake my head. It was her inability to see what's in front of her face and do a simple risk/reward assessment and see that it's just not there.
THIS BEING SAID... I loved 25% of the book and the rest, although frustrating, kept me interested and I couldn't turn it off. There is something to be said with that because I have a low tolerance for books that don't keep me involved and this one most definitely did keep me involved. I can't possibly give it a low rating when I couldn't even turn it off to shower. Either I'm a glutton for punishment with this one, or there is something there. Also, I am definitely looking forward to the next book. I have to know how this crazy series ends.
Do I need to comment about Elena Wolfe? Probably not because she is perfection 100% of the time. There is not a book with her name on it that ends up with subpar narration.

Very disappointing book by Laurelin Paige, I usually love her books not this one. It was all over the place, very unfocused. The characters were exhausting, whiny and adolescents. A total waste of my brain cells. Also, what was the ending about?

I read this book on my Kindle ages ago, so decided to download the audio!!!!
Elena Wolfe is a good narrator she got all other characters spot on!!!
If You Want a book with lots of angst and twists and turns with explicit sex which keep you totally addicted then this book is for you.
Can't Wait to read/listen to book 2 and can't wait for Weston' s story!!!!
Side Note: this book does contain TRIGGERS not for the faint of heart!!!!
I was hoping for a happy ending for this story but it ended , i thought, extremely abruptly with no answer to the continuous ,is it going to happen is it not?theme that went on and on throughout the story.
This book used the sex scenes, I felt, too much
and emphasised also too much the obvious inability of the girl to keep changing her mind
about seeing this sexual manipulator!
I wish I had not spent so much time listening to a book which was obviously on the market for readers to enjoy the sex but had no real ending of what I had thought was a love story.
