What an exciting and electrifying listen this was right from the get go as Newspaper Editor Harper first meets the mysterious sensual Software Mogul Jacob Latimer who soon introduces her to his dark sexual appetite.. which includes artfully placed black silk ropes. But Jacob is holding back secrets.. and one secret will connect him to Harper when they were young innocent teens - when an unbreakable bond was formed between a kidnapped Harper and the young boy who risked everything to save her from a terrible fate at the hands of a monster. However, Harper doesn't recognise her skinny young saviour in the handsome present-day businessman she's now falling for.. until slowly things start to unravel.

Jacob has gone to great lengths to hide his humble origins from the world so when he accidentally meets Harper again he thinks he can have it all and keep her from the disturbing memories of their locked-together pasts.. bitter-sweet memories he never wants to forget. Once Harper was everything to him, as he was to her, and Jacob just can't believe that she doesn't see who he really is.. behind the secretive Billionaire.. behind his fit body, shaven balls and alluring knots. But when the truth is eventually revealed both of them will be shocked and shaken with all the heartbreaking revelations.

This multi-layered listen was so addictive as you nervously wait for Harper to recognize the innocent boy she once loved in the kinky alpha man she's been helplessly falling for.. and to find the answers to his other secrets too. Jacob was intimidating, impenetrable and glacial.. but behind the aloof image lay a tantalizing man who had heart, heat and warmth. There's scorching hot detailed sex scenes with bondage, twists, suspense, romance, passion, good character growth and some sweet tense flashbacks to the events that first brought them together. Dual POV storyline that was awesomely told by one of my favorite narrators.

Worth a credit? YES, Beth Kery has weaved together a fascinating powerful love story with roots in the past as well as the present - I clung on to every enticing word, savored all the seductive unfolding drama and enjoyed every single second, minute and hour.

What did you like best about this story?

Like the new twist on romance book. It's still following a formula that all romance books use but still a bit new. Overall good.

Any additional comments?

I like audible books because I can multitask while I listen. I will listen 2 or even 3 times if I enjoyed it. Enjoyed both main characters.

This was my second listen and was astounded by how many times Ms. Kery used the word "Incredulous" or some form of the word. It was very distracting after awhile and then became outright annoying!

Suggestions..skeptical,mistrustful,suspicious, questioning or doubtful, to only list a few.
Needless to say this is what I'll remember about the book. That's too bad because I did like the characters.
