After being left at the altar, Jade Roberts seeks solace at her best friend's ranch on the Colorado western slope. Her humiliation still ripe, she doesn't expect to be attracted to her friend's reticent brother, but when the gorgeous cowboy kisses her, all bets are off.
Talon Steel is broken. Having never fully healed from a horrific childhood trauma, he simply exists, taking from women what is offered and giving nothing in return...until Jade Roberts catapults into his life. She is beautiful, sweet, and giving, and his desire for her becomes a craving he fears he'll never be able to satisfy.
Passion sizzles between the two lovers...but long-buried secrets haunt them both and may eventually tear them apart.

Very racy and sexy.
However, I found the sections about child abuse a little distressing and found it a little distasteful in an erotic book - didn't seem right. I probably wouldn't have bought it if I had realised.
The story however was very good and I was compelled to listen on.
Very explicit and maybe a few too many sex scenes for me.
"Great Narration - Hated the Cliffhanger ending!!"
Disturbing, Sad, Erotic
Can't think of one that compares. The sadness of the tragedy and the hope that could be makes for a powerful story.
You truly felt the pain and ecstacy flowing from their lips.
The Twisting Road to Recovery
Absolutely HATE when these authors leave a story hanging like this one was left. It creates an unfinished feeling and after all we read for enjoyment and to leave some of our own life behind for a while. The stories should leave you with a feeling of fulfillment not one of loss and longing.
"This EASILY could have been one book!"
This book is the first of 3. It easily could have been one book. Take out some of the sex and you have plenty of time to fit the story in. That being said, I am being very liberal with the use of the word "story." The 2 main characters fall "in love" in record time based on nothing more than their sexual chemistry. They honestly know nothing about one another. There is too much sex and not nearly enough character development. And both Jade and Talon are completely annoying. it makes you not care if they are able to work things out or not. Please do not waste your money.
"Interesting, disturbing yet erotic....."
This book is very interesting although I wish that it wouldn't given you more in the ending.... However there was some closure and some of the answers were given, you don't get the whole aspect from Talin's point of view. This book was beautifully written and executed and as always, the narrators did a phenomenal job. ...i just have more questions and some of the answers weren't given.
"This book was terrible."
I would not recommend this book to anyone. The sex scenes seemed forced and the ending was terrible. Ugh. What a waste of $10.
great story line, hate the cliffhanger wish the 2nd book was already available. sex scenes were dirty and delicious
"loved this book. It kept me my toes wondering what"
loves this book. It kept me in toes with wondering what was going to happen next. the love scenes were awesome
This book was not bad but not great. Hey at least let me have the big O when you have one. She was falling In love and tooooo understanding for me. Talon had some dark secrets that are hard for anyone with a heart. I say if you can handle the heat, this kitchen is for you😳😳😳
"MY HEART ACHES...."
Here's what I'm comfortable saying without giving anything away.......
The description tells of a bride being left at the alter so she goes to her best friends ranch. Bride being left at alter isn't the premise of the story it's actually a non-issue.
The story is full of suspense, mystery, angst, tears, and OMG's and What the f**k. There's also romance and hot sex.
I was driving when the cliffhanger hit and I almost had to pull of the road. Once I regained my composure I called my daughter who also listens.
Sebastain York and Neva Navarre gave a fantastic performance. Sebastain as Talon broke my heart and I hung on every word.
Absolutely worth the credit or $$.
love the book but it's a cliffhanger! hope next book comes out on audio soon.
Really good story, made even better as read by the dreamy and perfect voice of Sebastian York.
