Summary

You’ve tried your best for years and never managed to please your demanding parents. You’ve fallen head over heels for someone who keeps ignoring you. You’ve hit rock bottom.

Tessa is close to giving up on her authoritative parents and their demands, on her studies, and on everything in her life, including Dylan. He is the one boy she has loved since she can remember, the one who dated her and promised her forever when they were 14 and then dumped her without an explanation, only to ignore her ever since. He is the one who shows up to save her from violence before the stroke of midnight, who kisses her and holds her close, only to tell her in the course of the same night that he doesn’t love her.

Tessa knows Dylan has gone through some tough times, and they’re only getting tougher. Is he telling the truth about his lack of feelings for her, or is he running from his own demons?

The way Tessa sees it, she has two options: run away and leave it all behind, or stay to fight against her controlling family and win back Dylan. She has a feeling he needs her. How can she leave when he's the only man who’s ever made her feel alive?

This is a stand-alone story without a cliff-hanger. 

Warning: This book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature listeners only. Not intended for young listeners.

Dylan and Tessa Finally

Dylan is raising his two younger brothers because his mother left and then his father lost his sense of reality and joined a religious cult
When Dylan’s mother left when he was 14 he was dating Tessa. He broke their relationship off afraid to love and lose
Tessa is heartbroken and for 5 years holds out hope, to have it dashed
This is a story of love trust and forgiveness
The middle dragged a bit, regurgitating much of the same things over again
Good ending and minor revisit of the couples from the first 3 books
Good narration

Cute loving story... HEA

The characters are well liked but their low self-esteem got to me at times. The story is quite sweet but they keep misinterpreting each other... I love him/her... but he/she doesn't care about me. Same thoughts... Talk already!! Open up. Too many unsaid thoughts. I guess that's what makes the story.

Glad to see Tess has "balls" to stand up for herself... but, she could have done better. Nonetheless, glad to see she wasn't a victim asking for pity. She did have a lot of hopeless thinking... but so did Dylan.

Early in the story, we find out that years ago Tess was forced to have sex by Shane... He was then referred to as her "Ex". Why? They never dated. And, not once, was the word "rape" used. I really didn't understand that. The emphasis on this was under developed.

Tad Branson is amazing. His expressions makes imagining so perfect. Abby is great too but at times speaks very slowly. A bit frustrating. Over all the narration is really great.

The hot scenes are really hot. :P

Enjoy!

The best yet!!

Oh I soooo loved this one!! I loved Dylan and his brothers and I love Tess.. I have been waiting to hear their story. And to think Dylan is just a 19yr old boy. He worries and strength are amazing. I love how strong and loving Tess is.. I can wait to hear more about them in future books.

heartbreaking beautiful

I adore this story. So heart felt and emotionally engaging. Male voice is enthralling. Tessa's voice could have been less pitchy which makes her sound wimpy. I feel like her voice should match her strength of character. Love this story and the whole series.

Love the story, female narrator, not so much!

I love this book, heck the whole series. Just have to ignore that theyre teens. Reads more like mid 20's so thats what i picture while reading.

Male narrator os awesome and sexy, females voice annoyed me so much i almost stopped listening several times. The voice of Tessa os fine. Its the impression of the other voices. Id give this a full 5* all the way down if not for her. But definitely worth listening to!

Dylan & Tessa

Another good story by Jo Raven. I have really enjoyed this series. All these guys from the brotherhood have had such tragic lives. Abuse in one form or another. Dylan had horrible parents. His mother had left him, his two little brothers and father. His father kinda checked out. He had some mental issues. Dylan was left to take care of his little brothers, Miles and Teo. One was 6 and the other 2 when their mother left and Dylan was only 14. That's when it started with him taking responsibility for them. The father showed up from time to time but he was not much help. Dylan suffered with trying to go to college, play football, work and caring for his brothers. It was a struggle and he did the best he could. After 4 years, Dylan and Tessa end up being thrown together in various circumstances. Tessa had also suffered something tragic in her life at the age of 16 and although she came from money, her parents were horrible especially her father. Her mother started redeeming herself later in the book. This book really shows how the love of two people can come together and make a good home for a 6 and a 10 year old boy that love is what keeps them together even though Dylan though that love could tear you apart. This being one of the reasons he broke up with Tessa 4 years ago. I really enjoyed this book and the love scenes were very very sexy. Narration was great. I do love how we get a lot of Zane using his favorite word to refer to everyone in this book. I think he says it more in the other books than his own. I just find it hilarious 😊

Okay series...but....

I didn't dislike the series, but I did not exactly love it either. The thing that annoyed me mostly is the age of all these characters.
Every single one is under age for what is IMO logical in the storylines.
Storylines that began '4 or 5 years ago' when characters were 14 or 15 and then to 'now' when they are barely 20.
I am in no way saying that it isn't possible for some things to have happened as written - but to me it would be much easier to swallow if this group of friends were all 25 or so in the 'now'.
Also, no tattoo artist is going to be 18 or 19 and running his own shop. This is something that takes years of apprenticeship to learn and become licenced for. (Fully tatted here...so trust me)

Narration was decent, but again these voices are NOT 19 or 20.

Overall if you can suspend your disbelief over parts it isn't a waste of time or credits.

Great performances

I’m a fan of Abby Craden from another book called Bully. Good story line. Enjoyed how Tessa was able to stand up for herself. Story was a little predictable, but it still was entertaining.
