Publisher's Summary

This is a standalone novel with no cliffhanger.
Melissa Trujillo knows suffering. She's tasted it, touched it, injected it. Sobriety is a gift, but it isn't enough to wash away her secrets.
Kieran O'Connell knows sacrifice. He's owned it, held it between his fingers, and felt it in his knees. Words are his freedom, and they've begun to fade.
Two different worlds. One moment, and the Earth shifts - granting them a path. His eyes meet hers. Her hand fits his. Kieran finds his muse. Melissa finds her new addiction.
But when sin meets virtue, angels fall, and the truth, it becomes a blade. Together they'll walk the sharp edge, and if her lies cut too deep, not even his words could save her... save them.

BEAUTIFUL REDEMPTION FOR A SAINT AND A SINNER

When A.M. Johnson writes, IMO, she creates magic because her words are priceless, her characters are wounded and her love stories are beautiful lyrical works of art.. and, in Poet, she has surpassed all my expectations. Words are words but in this talented author’s hands the way she matches and manipulates them to describe feelings, thoughts, situations and scenes absolutely awes and floors me. I’ve been lost in, possessed by and totally loved the other two O’Connell brother’s stories.. but wow, the poetic words and descriptions in this book were beautiful.. raw.. powerful.. romantic.. and unique.

Melissa ‘s addiction, choices and lifestyle in her past had left demons in her soul, regret in her heart and self-loathing on her mind.. and that didn’t change the night she was introduced to Kieran O’Connell. The loving handsome youngest brother had almost been a Priest with a tattoo of a rosary and an eight pack that summed up his faith, his strength and his appeal. It was instant attraction and chemistry on both sides but Melissa’s tainted misguided view of herself left little doubt, in her mind, that she was not worthy of this particular Saint. But despite her fears, Kieran showered her with beautiful words, gave her his virginity, showed her truth and trust.. and eventually opened Melissa’s heart up to possibilities. Slowly Melissa’s doubts and dark thoughts were extinguished by Kieran’s light.. by gaving her his innocence, his virtue, his trust, his loyalty and his love.. but in return she peddled in half truths, excelled at misdirection and lied by omission. And, when the truth is accidentally revealed, it’s the lie not the sin that breaks two hearts.

Worth a credit? This book, and its narration, is much much more than just a nicely paced bitter-sweet dual POV beautiful love story.. it’s words hold the power to make you truly feel.. to empathize.. to judge.. to forgive.. to love.. to taste.. and to savor hope and heartache along with its damaged yet perfect characters. So YES, very creditworthy and it’s made me want to listen to the other two O’Connell brother’s stories all over again.

A Powerful Story of Acceptance and Forgiveness

If you could sum up Poet in three words, what would they be?

Honest, Emotional, Beautiful

What did you like best about this story?

Kieran and Melissa's story was so heartbreakingly brilliant in it's honesty and candor. Mel's shame and guilt were almost palpable characters in this story. The demons of her past and the consequences of her decisions were so haunting. We watch her struggle to not only keep her head above water, but also to live and feel worthy of love. I found it refreshing that it was the heroine who was the more broken and dark of the pair. So often the hero swoops in and saves the heroine, but this time they saved each other.

Have you listened to any of Seraphine Valentine and Teddy Hamilton ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to a few books narrated by Teddy Hamilton, but this was my first time hearing Seraphine Valentine. I thought she was amazing as Melissa and her and Teddy were an incredible narrating team! I really hope to listen to more titles by them either together or individually.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES! Even though I previously read the book, being able to listen to it took it to another level and made me fall in love with the characters all over again! Teddy Hamilton as Kieran was especially amazing! He was the perfect amount of sweet and vulnerable, while still being incredibly sexy. I can't recommend this audiobook enough!

Any additional comments?

Poet is book 3 in the interconnected Avenues Ink series, but it can be read/listened to as a standalone. I feel it would be best enjoyed after reading Possession and Kingdom (books 1 and 2), however, since characters in the previous books appear throughout the series.

heartfelt story of love

If you could sum up Poet in three words, what would they be?

emotional, sweet, heartfelt.

What other book might you compare Poet to, and why?

not sure I have listened to anything like this as the male character is Alpha but also very very sweet.

What about Teddy Hamilton and Seraphine Valentine ’s performance did you like?

they made me feel emotional invested in the story, they did such a good job.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I always want to listen in one go but being the mother of 2 small children I have to pace myself

Any additional comments?

this is a standalone but it would help to read the other books first as quiet a few references to the past story.
