This is book 3, but a stand alone listen. Here we get to hear more about Bishop and his past and present and all of it is about winning back the woman he loves.
Yes, this story jumped back and forth from present to past (A LOT) but it was easy to keep up with and had really great story lines in both timelines. I really like how this author writes and would download her next book without blinking!
Narration was great, worthy of a credit.

I was really really enjoying this book about a possessive bad boy and the love of his life a Tarot reading Fortune Teller/Writer and the nicely developing plot that switched back and forth from their failed romance years earlier to the present. Coupled with this the plot also had developers wanting to shut down their business, take over the town and develop it which took blackmail, bribes, murder and a couple of bumbling thugs which all led to a who, what and why mystery.
It was funny if a bit predictable, but there was quick witty conversations, a funny quirky and loveable Mother, two well meaning brothers, a swoon-worthy sexy Hero desperate to rekindle and protect what he thought was his, interesting secondary characters, an on/off romance and a few passionate sex scenes.
So yes, I was enjoying this....... right up to to the part when I suddenly noticed the CONSTANT use of the word "said" an example...... the Girl Scouts came last month Anthony said, look I said can't you secure the apartment without killing anyone, we could booby trap the landing Steve said hows that? Terrible I said, can't you just board up the doors, you're no fun Anthony said, I'm all funned out I said, at least tell me you've got your gun Steve said, sort of I said...... shit Steve said you've got to get it checked out, yeah and shoot it too Anthony said... Today Steve said, no way I said I've got other things to do, so have we Steve said but you don't see us whining about it, or Anthony said.... on and on every conversation was peppered with the word "said" or sometimes for a change "I asked" "I sighed" "I muttered" etc etc etc. I found myself cringing every time, or counting how many "I saids" were in a conversation or what words would replaced them.
Worth a credit? If this listen just left out the annoying "I saids" and relied on the ability of the narrator to make each voice different then I wouldn't hesitate to say YES and, if you feel you could overlook a listen filled with them then go for it. But I would have to say that it ruined the listen for me.
