I love love love Maya Bank's books and savour everything she writes - however, I feel these short stories are a bit too short - yes they pack a lot in and are usually romantic, hot and sweet but sadly I probably won't be downloading anything more that's just a few hours long.
You do get a good quick entertaining and enjoyable listen but it just doesn't quite satisfy your appetite - it's like eating a M burger, yes it's quick, enjoyable and filling but a steak done on the BBQ is something you can get your teeth into and is far more rewarding and satisfying - so I'll probably just stick to her +6 hr listens in future.

The issue of domestic violence is pervasive in our culture. It is a topic that should be handled with honesty and with care. The heroine in this story, survived abuse and created a new life for herself . Instead of displaying the strength and fortitude this character would need to posses to be a survivor. She is portrayed as weak-willed and naive. Why is it that books written for an overwhelmingly female audience, so often feature one-dimensional women characters without agency in their own stories? It's getting harder and harder to accept such uninspiring, weak-ass female characters. It's just insulting, to me and every other romance reader.
