Publisher's Summary

She is a woman on the run. Pain, loneliness, and terror are what she is leaving. Where she is headed doesn't matter as long as it's away from the hell her life has become.
Joshua Bennett is trapped in a prison of his own making by the memories of his past. Traumatized and isolated, he is a reclusive writer, living a quiet, lonely life, his only companion his dog, Bear. It is what he knows, what he has accepted to be his life.
One dark night, one huge storm, and one ice patch brings them together. He finds himself with an unexpected house guest with no memory. She wakes up a stranger to herself and the man watching her. Even more mysterious is the lack of any sort of identification with her or in her car. She is an enigma to both of them.
Trapped by the storm and isolated from the outside world, they slowly open up, learning to trust and love, until the world once again shows up, threatening the fragile peace of their newly discovered world, and tearing them apart. Will they overcome both the mental and physical elements that keep them apart to find their way back to one another?

The Publisher's Summary may describe the backbone of the story.. but nothing can prepare you for the layers contained within it, the emotional highs and lows that were reached and the character development that transpires when two broken damaged people accidentally meet. Elizabeth is running and Joshua is hiding - but together they fall in love, heal and rescue each other.

A totally captivating story that delivers drama, angst, sex, romance, bitter-sweet scenes and emotional ones too and this talented author didn't have to bless us with an Epilogue because the book was wrapped up so well.. but she did and it was the perfect ending for a perfect couple who fought hard and deserved their HEA.

Worth a credit? YES absolutely.. an entertaining and addictive story that whizzed by in chunks of dual POV's as told by a couple of awesome narrators.

Love When The TYRANT Gets His Just Deserves

When I started listening to this book I had a lot of questions but as I continued listening the questions were answered. So be patient.

Elizabeth has been married to a tyrant for 2 years. He controls every aspect of her life including what she wears, eats and she's his personal punching bag. It's really bad.

Joshua is a famous author. He lived in the city until he almost died from a mugging. After 6 months of healing he started suffering from anxiety so he bought a place in the country and became an agoraphobic.

After Elizabeth's husband, Brian, beat her the worst ever then said he would be back in 2 hours to give her more she packed a bag and ran.

She ends up in the worst snow storm of the season and crashes into a tree on Joshua's property. This is their story....

The story moves at a good pace, there's no fluff, it has plenty of mystery, suspense, twists, sex but not detailed and insta-love. Every question you could have is answered. The end isn't rushed it's given to us in a nice wrapped up package.

I've read that this is Melanie Moreland's debut book. I'll be looking for more from her.

To have accomplished performers John Lane and Tatiana Sokolov perform a debut book you know it's a gem.

Worth credit/$ Absolutely.
