There’s no wonder other reviewers used words such as powerful, moving, emotional, touching, brilliant, incredible, haunting and beautiful to describe this wonderful second chance love story.. because it was all that and so so much more. You’re captivated from the start as you hear the moving story of a young love that went heartbreakingly wrong, the impact that had on their lives and the insightful look into the life and challenges of someone with a mental illness.. especially after that breakup. There’s also the damage and destruction caused by religious zealots on that tender relationship and the moving love story that grew from the embers of that love.
The love Paige and Declan had for each other was undeniable and it shone through every single chapter.. and, when it finally happened, you could feel the soul-to-soul connection between Paige and Declan when they forgave each other, accepted that they couldn’t change their pasts and eventually forgave, made love and claimed back their lives. I was obsessed, possessed, totally wrecked and emotionally ruined by A.M. Johnson’s epic powerful storytelling.. but what really gave these characters a heartbeat was the outstanding narration by Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock who made this Dual POV story absolutely unforgettable.
Worth a credit? YES.. it was different, compelling, unique, moving and hauntingly beautiful too as two emotionally damaged characters find their way back into each other’s arms.. despite the odds, despite others, despite their histories and despite the cruel hand of Fate.

I love AM Johnson's writing style, she really knows how to tell the story! I have listened to another audiobook of hers and loved it too! This book is a little dark and depressing throughout the beginning the book because it deals with serious mental issues.
Declan, the poor guy has issues and can't seem to get in front of them. It was very interesting being in his head and hearing what is going on in there. He is a good guy, loyal and does the best he can. Paige comes from a very messed up place that has beaten her down and she really needs to find herself again in the beginning of this book. I'm so glad she found her back bone! Together these too find their happy place. I love how she loved him and understands his condition and just wants to be with him no matter what. The ending was beautiful <3
The narration was PERFECT! That isn't much of a surprise for me but that's because I love both Aaron Shedlock & Tracy Marks. I say this every time but I really love them together in a dual narration. Their tones are not completely opposite and it makes the narration flow so well. Usually a male & female narrator have such extremely different tones and pitch that it can be jarring but these two are so smooth.
