Publisher's Summary

There is no greater burden than a secret, and Kari Stanley has been carrying one alone for a long time. But fate intervenes in the form of a broken down car and the kind offer of assistance from a handsome stranger with a sweet Southern drawl. In exchange, all she has to do is go to dinner with him. Temptation was never so sweet.
Max Quinn has secrets of his own. His good deeds aren't just a product of his Southern upbringing; they're his atonement. As one dinner turns into two, he realizes that Kari just might be his salvation.
As they struggle to find their path together, their secrets weigh heavier on them. Will they be able to trust one another with the truth, or will their secrets keep them apart forever?

The Unexpected

This was another great listen from my favorite narration team, Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross. It was my introduction to the author, Adriana Locke.

It wasn’t quite what I expected because the blurb was a bit misleading. Most of it happened in the prologue, and then the story skips ahead a year and a half to the point where Max is trying to get Kari to move in with him and marry him.

It started off a little slow, but then it picked up speed and I couldn’t stop listening. It’s really a romantic suspense, and the suspense builds throughout. Although it was obvious who the stalker was early on, there were many scenes and characters that turned out to be unpredictable. I enjoyed expecting one thing and being surprised with another. There was also a subplot surrounding Max’s friend and Kari’s brother-in-law, Cane Alexander, that added depth to the book. Everything was neatly explained, and the loose ends were all tied up at the end.

Kennicott and Ross did a bang-up job with the different voices and accents. They each played one character with a southern accent, and outside of the accents, they were able to vary their voices enough that I could easily tell which character was speaking. There is nothing like dual narration where a man does all the male voices, and a woman does all the female ones. It makes dialog so much more realistic and fun to listen to. I think these two are the best narration duo out there. Once you’ve had Kennicott and Ross, you can't go back. I eagerly await more audiobooks from them.

I would definitely recommend this one to my friends.
