Publisher's Summary

Gavin Kingsley burst into my life in a sharp and unexpected twist of fate. You know his type - arrogant, dangerously handsome and impossible to ignore.
Something dark within him calls to the shadows inside me. I long for the kind of heart-wrenching passion I've only read about, and his tragic past reads like one of my favorite literary classics. Raw. Visceral. Captivating. Together, we're a perfect mess.
The deeper I fall into his world, the more I crave him like a drug - he pushes every boundary I have and challenges everything I thought I wanted. I want to unlock his heart. I want his dirty secrets.
But in the end, will he be the blade that cuts me...or the bond that makes my life complete?

Not quite satisfying but good

I almost stopped listening, in a way I wish I had, it's a cliffhanger and I hate cliffhangers. If I know going into it, it's a series, duet or trilogy, that's fine but I absolutely hate when there is no indication that it is not a stand alone.
That said...
The female character is weak and whines too much. She has a backbone in one sentence, then poof, it's gone. She just removed herself from an abusive relationship and is right back into another one????? WEAK! I do love Kendall Ryan, have several of her books and have enjoyed them all. But I can't stand it when an independent, strong women turns into a mush mouth and doesn't stand up for herself, when some man she just meets, runs all over her.
Zachary Webber as always does a wonderful job and Megan Tusing, although not in his league did well.
Not sure I'll purchase the next book IN THIS DUET.
If there's another cliffhanger, I'm done.

Just amazing!!!

Loved this!!!
Kendall Ryan once again has created a fictional world that you just want to jump into!!

The story line is unlike anything she's ever created and I'm wowed by her creativity and originality of character development.

Narration was perfect! Megan Turing was perfect as Emma! And....Zachary Webber just brings the story to life once again and leaves me speechless with his depiction of the Kingsley brothers.

So looking forward to Dirty Little Promise!!

Great Start to a New Series

Zachary Webber and Megan Tusing did a great job at narrating which really helped me get into the story a lot quicker than I probably would of if I was reading it, but that's not to say that I didn't enjoy it as I did and the chemistry between the characters were easy and natural.

I can't wait to see how everything is going to turn out for the Emma and the brothers.

A little dark, intense and mysterious.

Kendall Ryan skillfully navigates her audience through this roller coaster ride of a story. She has created intense characters with interesting, challenging and somewhat tragic back stories and put them together in somewhat mysterious, slightly dark and definitely intense circumstances.

The somewhat innocent head librarian Emma Bell finds herself in a non-relationship tug-of-war between Gavin Kingsley and his brother. However the heart wants what it wants, which apparently means Gavin with his inner darkness, his need to dominate and his secrets. Just when Emma bypasses some seemingly insurmountable obstacles and feels she may be able to connect with Gavin, a dark secret involving a past tragedy promises to send the characters into another tailspin.

This plot has all the potential for a HEA but the reader will not find it in this book. Luckily there is more to come in the next part of Gavin and Emma's story. I am looking forward to listening to the next book.

I really appreciated the two narrators for this book as it maked it easier to keep track of whose POV was being focused on at any given point in the story. Zachary Webber and Megan Tusing each do a wonderful job of bring the characters' inner thoughts and turmoil to life.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
