Publisher's Summary

Sometimes it takes someone else to show us what we are truly capable of becoming. Suffering from years of violent abuse, Ryan Campbell has learned how to keep people from getting too close. But when you shut yourself off, people get hurt along the way. Never caring much about others, Ryan creates a world in which he doesn't have to feel. When Ryan meets Candace Parker, all of his walls slowly begin to crumble. Not sure of the truth of who she is, he feels his mind is playing tricks on him. Unable to force out the thoughts that consume him, Ryan is haunted by visions that torment him every time he looks at her. He finds himself swallowed by guilt and blame, but he's unwilling to turn his back on the one person that could possibly save him. You've heard Candace's story in Fading, now hear Ryan's.

Way to long with very little in the way of romance

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not unless it was in paperback.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have cut out about half of it since it was mostly tears about the something. There was no depth.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I would have love to have a female voice or someone who has a passable female voice. Every other female was a valley girl. Blah.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

A level of spicy. It was too tame.

Ryan as a Girlie-man :(

Narration - Angelo Carillo, Piper Goodeve
There is greatness here and there is not so greatness here. Unfortunately, we only get one chapter with Piper's narration. She's simply fabulous. Angelo has a terrific narration voice and pretty much one character voice and unfortunately all the rest of his character voices are a little too over the top for my liking. It sort of made parts of this a little hard to listen.

The story is another retelling of Fading but now it's through Ryan's POV.

Major additions include a look into Ryan's tortured childhood - more details of what happened with Jack and it continues past the ending of Fading to tie up all the loose ends for Jase & Mark as well as Ryan & Candace.

Did I enjoy his POV? Yes, parts and others nope. I fell in love with Ryan in Book one, but in this book, he's sort of grows a Va-Jay-Jay (no offense to those of us of the fairer sex). He was just a big girlie-man in his head for a lot of the book. There were tons of gratuitous sex scenes to the point that I got bored. (and that normally just does NOT happen to me). I did really enjoy his POV regarding moving slowly with her and helping her overcome her fears regarding sex and being touched. All the rest were unnecessary fluff.

To me, it was just ok.
