Great Writing-Unexpected Ending-Fantastic Narratio

Layla received a head injury her freshman year of college. She recovered well except for she had amnesia for the entire year preceding the injury. Now she wants to know what she missed.

Her first clue is that her father owed a man named Nathan a lot of money. So she tracked him down to his office. When she gave the receptionist her name, she was stonewalled and told she would not get an opportunity to speak with him. Of course, she finds a way and they begin their troubled relationship.

Before this listener knew it, they were in bed together. It was all the usual stuff these books are made of. He's handsome strong and big. She is confused but cannot understand this magnetic pull he has on her… He demands she signed a contract in which she will stay with him for three months.

Layla begins to look for Nathan's brother (her second clue.) Especially as Nathan is not giving her any help in finding her lost year. For some reason that perplexes her, Nathan doesn't want her to get a hold of him.

They have [descriptive] sex, all the time, and it is always wonderful. This is one of the books that I referred to chocolate (or any other vice one may have.) It is full of empty calories, but taste so good you can't stop.

As Layla finally tracks down Andrew, there is a very important fact that the author purposely omitted until this meeting. This makes things more understandable but I was so little bit put off by it. From there, it seems like the drama, plot and writing would be more suitable for a young adult or teen audience (minus the sex).

While I was disappointed with the route that Theadora Taylor chose, it seems the lazy way out, in my opinion. However, I am always quick to give kudos to any author good or bad for having the bravery and wherewithal to write a book, become published and have a large enough audience to get it on audio. It is very expensive and I am sure that those books making the cut face tremendous and daunting tasks.

Leyna Baltimore's narration was very good. I appreciate the way that she was able to flow from one character to the next, male or female. Baltimore is a great narrator. This is the first book that I have listened to by Baltimore. She gives a solid performance and if I see her name on any books in the future, I won't hesitate to pick them up.

Notes: Mature themes & strong language. Using the movie rating system NC-17

Couldn't Stop Listening!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook to a friend, yes. Theodora Taylor is a great writer and I listened to this audiobook as if I hadn't read the book already. It was so hard for me to pause it and go about life. I really liked it and I know others will too.

What did you like best about this story?

The best thing I liked about this story was the constant feeling of suspense. There was always something that had you thinking in the back of your mind "what happened then".

Which character – as performed by Leyna Baltimore – was your favorite?

My favorite character, performed by Leyna Baltimore, was Layla. I really like how she embodied Layla's character. Layla is sweet, nice, and polite. And her voice fit Layla, in my opinion.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did have an extreme reaction to this book. I was angry at a certain character because there was no way I would have put up with the things he made Layla put up with. He was heartless.

Any additional comments?

In addition, I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. I found that I didn't want to stop it. It was a great experience.
