Publisher's Summary

Hanna Boudreaux has lived in the small town of Willow all her life. She’s sweet, cute, and quiet.
Hanna has a moment of epiphany when she realizes her crush for forever, Raiden Ulysses Miller, is never going to be hers. She sees her life as narrow and decides to do something about it.
Raiden Miller is the town’s local hero. A former marine with the medal to prove his hero status, he comes home shrouded in mystery. It takes a while, but eventually Hanna catches his eye.
After all these years of Raid and Hanna living in the same town, the question is: Why? Is Raid interested in Hanna because she’s sweet and cute? Or does Raid have something else going on?

best book ever

Where does Raid rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The best book I've listened to by far. Great story really touched home for me. The first booked I actually cried listening to.

Love it!

Raid is amazing and Hanna is sweet just a little to whinny for me. But, well worth the credit.

LOVE... Love...Love

The goofy heroin that moons over high school hottie. Whilst a cliché begging, this is an utterly unique story. Hannah, now 26, her high school crush, Raid, has been in the army and seen the most harrowing things in life a person can see and he is suffering with these memories. Whilst Hannah's life is very narrow as she is hidden in her books and looking after her grandmother she manages to get entangled, unconsciously in the drug business; but now Raid has her back.... but that doesn't mean that their troubles are over. This is one of Ashley's best story lines with countless twist and turns whilst also being hilariously funny as this unconventional couple are paired together!

Oldie but a goodie

This is one of KA’s earlier books and I find myself often re-reading her earlier work as I seem to prefer them to her later books.

This book is not perfect, and it would have been nice to have a stronger plotline, explained in deeper detail. Several issues featured in this story (PTSD problems, the drug shipment storyline, the work of the H and its impact on the relationship) but it felt like they were only partly explored. I have to admit, however, that I was very happy the BDSM storyline faded into nothing! In fact the sex in this book was wonderfully hot, but after the first few encounters we thankfully did not get pages and pages of sex, as has become a trend in later books by this author. Because many plot issues were skimmed over, this book does focus more on the development of the relationship between a flawed H, who knows exactly what he wants in his future, and an amazingly adorable h who is a reflection of her happy and loving upbringing.

Well worth a mention were a couple of fabulous side characters, namely the grandmother and the cat. Both bring a fabulous humour to the story and illustrate why it is that so many of us readers stay devoted to KA’s books.

The only serious negative here is the narrator. She was perfect, apart from the voice for the H. The macho quality of the H is greatly diminished by the narration. I did listen to the whole book (I have deleted some other KA books from my audio due to poor narration) but I remain undecided as to whether, when I return to this book, it will be on kindle or audible.

Needs a better narrator

Love KA but damn the narrator was terrible. Disappointing and I'm sorry to put someone's work down, the voice wasn't right for me 🙁

Great story

Such a great book. One of my favourite couples and KA book however the narrator is very over the top I wish she had toned it down a touch
