For twelve hours and twenty two minutes I was in Heaven, happily lost in Kristen Ashley’s heartwarming new love story of two characters who’d known heartache, who’d known loss and who’d known drama in their lives. But slowly these sweet beautiful caring characters found each other, found their soulmates, found love and found their HEA. Along the way there were walls to crumble, hurdles to get over, battles to fight, family members and friends to meet, romantic words and scenes to share, passions to ignite and threats from the past to overcome. And this hero and heroine did it in true KA style.. with feeling, with strong emotions, with hot sex, with compassion passion and possession, with torture and tenderness.. and with deep undiluted love.
I was mezmerized, sucked in and blown away by Izzy and Johnny’s unfolding love story, by their quirks, their personalities, their backstories, their family values and their emotions.. and I just wasn’t ready to leave the small town of Matlock Kentucky - even after the sweet sweet Epilogue. This is a well loved author who seriously knows her stuff, who knows how to pace a story, how to inject tension and drama at just the right time, how to pull at your heartstrings, how to write about a possessive alpha male and how to write a beautiful love story. Also, Stella Bloom and Lance Greenfield are two talented narrators who give five star performances, who bring characters and their stories to life, who inflect project and inject the emotions needed to stir, to soothe and to sate the many flavors of each scene.. and who made it a joy to listen to this audiobook.
Worth a credit? Well, as I bask in the afterglow of an entertaining enjoyable and loved listen about a damaged hero, a random hookup, the return of someone’s lost love (with all its complications) and a heartmeltingly beautiful hot love story.. there’s absolutely only one answer to give.. and that folks is a big fat YES that’s oozing with droolworthy sighworthy happiness.

The story dragged in a lot of spots with not enough conflict. I found it hard to believe that this stunning woman who was supposedly so amazing had made it to her 30's without ever "falling in love" and having a serious boyfriend.
The story is waaaay tropey. Brooding, millionaire, alpha male MC. Quirky female MC who doesn't "know how beautiful she is". Some of the forced things she did to make Izzy quirky made my eyes roll. Cooking breakfast while wearing muck boots with a canary on her shoulder? Why? To trek horse poop and bird droppings through the kitchen? Stop trying so hard.
By far the worst part was the male narration. It literally sounded like it was narrated by Batman. When I realized this was who he sounded like, I couldn't stop laughing. It was terrible.

I have never come across an audio book like this that wouldn't download above chapter 1. However I did get some more chaps downloaded, but then when stated to read and listen I lost them again and it went back to one chapter and it seemed like it would be a good book as well I was so disappointed.
One of your best heroes yet. I want Johnny Gamble in my life. Lol
Izzy is fantastic. So strong and independent. Very steamy read. As I listen to all books in the car on my way to work. There were times I had to turn the volume down just in case the other cars in traffic heard. But as always you mad me smile. laugh and cry along with your characters. The people that I walk past while listening have no idea what has made me have such a cheesy grin on my face. Thanks for being such an engaging author. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.
Another book i have not read, but listening to it, i loved it. The narrators have both done a wonderful job, and the story itsself well you dont get gentleman like that these days. i love Kristens style of writing every book she writes it has that certain factor that gives the book a punch that makes .
