Betrayed by the MC he once loved, mourning the brutal murder of his wife, Joe "Hammer" Holder is just trying to hang on to the pieces of his life. He swore he would never fall in love again--until Meia. Meia belongs to another man--a human trafficker with unlimited political connections and power, who ensures her loyalty by holding someone she loves in his grasp. Love is not part of Meia's destiny--until Hammer.
Can love blossom in the midst of unspeakable pain and loss? And when Meia disappears without a trace, will Hammer's love be enough to help her survive?

"A little too much angst.."
I have to say what I liked best was a predictable HEA. What I liked least was way too much drama. The chemistry between Hammer and Meia seemed rushed and "off".
No,,i think it ended when it should have.
"UM, WELL I REALLY TRIED.. BUT IT WAS SO DAMN DARK"
Sorry, but this was way way too dark and depressing for me and it hardly featured the Inferno MC at all so can't be classified as an MC listen in any way. Joe was still mourning the loss of his wife and now, 2 years on, his daughter is starting to be a problem too. Meia has had a tough life so far - captured, taken into slavery and taught to become a high priced whore and, with her unusual Asian looks, she was a very lucrative asset. But her handler was abusive, jealous, very greedy and held something over Meia's head to make her amenable to all his wishes.
This listen was dark and disturbing and was full of depression, despair, anguish, depravity, suffering, hate, rage, mourning and suicidal thoughts. By the time the romance eventually kicked in (about chapter 22) I too was feeling the despair, depression and anguish. I never felt any chemistry between the H/H and the author could have included some happy scenes towards the end like Meia being introduced to his daughter, the daughter seeing her horse for the first time, the proposal, their marriage, the children's first meeting etc etc etc but no, zilch, nada, nothing.... just overlooked and glossed over. 85% pain and suffering, 5% romance, 5% action and 5% of an Epilogue which whipped through 2 years of what happened after the rescue.
Dual POV's, but even the great narration couldn't warm me to this listen.
Worth a credit? No way, and at the end of this book it rounds up the news from other couples from the series so I think this may be the last one which is handy because I wouldn't buy/use a credit on another one.
