    4.5 out of 5 stars 47

Early in her life, Josephine Malone learned the hard way that there was only one person she could love and trust: her grandmother, Lydia Malone. Out of necessity, unconsciously and very successfully, Josephine donned a disguise to keep all others at bay. She led a globetrotting lifestyle on the fringes of the fashion and music elite, but she kept herself distant. While Josephine was trotting the globe, retired boxer Jake Spear was living in the same small town as Lydia.

Would you try another book written by Kristen Ashley or narrated by Hollis McCarthy?

I would definitely read more books by this author, unfortunately the narration lets it down badly.

If you’ve listened to books by Kristen Ashley before, how does this one compare?

First time I have read anything by this author.

Do you think The Will needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No, the loose ends were tied up nicely.

Any additional comments?

On occasion the description of thoughts going through Josephine's mind were a little long winded and repetitive. Keeping it simple sometimes works best.
