The book was amazing to begin with, but adding the narration to it where I had a voice to go with the video playing in my head was amazing. I cannot wait for more from author and narrator.
This could have been better if Damian and Alexa would have stopped thinking of sex for a minute. Jeez! And Alexa’s reasoning for testifying against her father was so stupid. She wanted him in prison so he’d be safe. Seriously? It had nothing to do with him being the head of the Russian crime family or all the people he killed? She just wanted him in prison so he wouldn’t be killed on the streets. Good grief, I know the author could have come up with a better storyline than that. And, of course, Damian hated her father because of a shoot-out with his men caused is partner’s death. So, therefore, he hates her, he just can’t stop lusting after her. At no time during the book did I feel any kind of love between them. Not even when she said I love you, just before she slammed his head against the steering wheel and knocked him unconscious.
Overall, the last two chapters were the best. I was totally surprised at who the bad guy was, I mean, other than her father. And even though I also bought the second book is this series I don’t think I’ll be reading it for a while. They’re just too lame-y until the very end of the story. Only 194 pages and I skimmed a lot, so that tells you something.
There was explicit sex in this AND lots of lust and lots of thoughts and not enough action. There was a chance at a good book here if the author would have divided the sexy stuff and the mob stuff evenly but she was interested in the sex mostly.
The F-bomb was used 8 times.
As to the narration: I don’t even know what to say. Michael Pauley narrated a couple of books I listened to in 2017 and he was great BUT in this one (2016) he was just terrible. His voices for the men and women were fine but he read so weird. Kind of like William Shatner (James T. Kirk.) He put so many pauses at the end of his sentences and all the wrong emotions. I’m certainly glad he got better.
