Fast becoming a one-click author for me, Anna Brooks continues her Pleasant Valley series with this emotionally filled story of Vaughn and Rayne. Vaughn has had a terrible childhood, the rejection from his mother forever scarring his heart. Rayne is pining over a boyfriend that is now part of her past, but she cannot get over. These two when they meet have such a ferocity of chemistry, one wanting to move ahead, one wanting to slip back. Each having issues from their past, hurts to overcome and problems to solve, but there is something more has pulled me into this story over and above that. I think the way that Vaughn is with Rayne is so primal, his need for her so basic, it caught me a little off guard and had me fall in love quickly with the story. Rayne proves to be just as powerful with her love and devotion, and no matter the circumstance, these two know they are meant to be. And for good measure, there is a little suspense thrown into the story as well, with the view of Petey and Dirt that we met in book 1 and a little of their backstory, we get a glimpse of danger lurking. Love the addition of Brad and Kennedy, fabulous characters to give some depth to their friendships with Vaughn and Rayne as well a shout out to the band from Anna Brook's book Prove me Right! I love crossover cameos!
Two of my favorite narrators, JF Harding and Bunny Warren read Vaugh and Rayne's story. Harding has such emotional value in his voice, I find myself easily invested in Vaughn. He gives him that alpha sound with the feels necessary to make Vaughn hot and vulnerable at the same time. Warren has a voice perfect for Rayne. At times you can feel the desperation, but always the perseverance and love needed to make her keep moving forward.
