Publisher's Summary

This is a standalone novel with no cliffhanger.

Melissa Trujillo knows suffering. She's tasted it, touched it, injected it. Sobriety is a gift, but it isn't enough to wash away her secrets.

Kieran O'Connell knows sacrifice. He's owned it, held it between his fingers, and felt it in his knees. Words are his freedom, and they've begun to fade.

Two different worlds. One moment, and the Earth shifts - granting them a path. His eyes meet hers. Her hand fits his. Kieran finds his muse. Melissa finds her new addiction.

But when sin meets virtue, angels fall, and the truth, it becomes a blade. Together they'll walk the sharp edge, and if her lies cut too deep, not even his words could save her... save them.

    "heartfelt story of love "
    If you could sum up Poet in three words, what would they be?

    emotional, sweet, heartfelt.


    What other book might you compare Poet to, and why?

    not sure I have listened to anything like this as the male character is Alpha but also very very sweet.


    What about Teddy Hamilton and Seraphine Valentine ’s performance did you like?

    they made me feel emotional invested in the story, they did such a good job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I always want to listen in one go but being the mother of 2 small children I have to pace myself


    Any additional comments?

    this is a standalone but it would help to read the other books first as quiet a few references to the past story.

    "BEAUTIFUL REDEMPTION FOR A SAINT AND A SINNER "

    When A.M. Johnson writes, IMO, she creates magic because her words are priceless, her characters are wounded and her love stories are beautiful lyrical works of art.. and, in Poet, she has surpassed all my expectations. Words are words but in this talented author’s hands the way she matches and manipulates them to describe feelings, thoughts, situations and scenes absolutely awes and floors me. I’ve been lost in, possessed by and totally loved the other two O’Connell brother’s stories.. but wow, the poetic words and descriptions in this book were beautiful.. raw.. powerful.. romantic.. and unique.

    Melissa ‘s addiction, choices and lifestyle in her past had left demons in her soul, regret in her heart and self-loathing on her mind.. and that didn’t change the night she was introduced to Kieran O’Connell. The loving handsome youngest brother had almost been a Priest with a tattoo of a rosary and an eight pack that summed up his faith, his strength and his appeal. It was instant attraction and chemistry on both sides but Melissa’s tainted misguided view of herself left little doubt, in her mind, that she was not worthy of this particular Saint. But despite her fears, Kieran showered her with beautiful words, gave her his virginity, showed her truth and trust.. and eventually opened Melissa’s heart up to possibilities. Slowly Melissa’s doubts and dark thoughts were extinguished by Kieran’s light.. by gaving her his innocence, his virtue, his trust, his loyalty and his love.. but in return she peddled in half truths, excelled at misdirection and lied by omission. And, when the truth is accidentally revealed, it’s the lie not the sin that breaks two hearts.

    Worth a credit? This book, and its narration, is much much more than just a nicely paced bitter-sweet dual POV beautiful love story.. it’s words hold the power to make you truly feel.. to empathize.. to judge.. to forgive.. to love.. to taste.. and to savor hope and heartache along with its damaged yet perfect characters. So YES, very creditworthy and it’s made me want to listen to the other two O’Connell brother’s stories all over again.

    "A Powerful Story of Acceptance and Forgiveness"
    If you could sum up Poet in three words, what would they be?

    Honest, Emotional, Beautiful


    What did you like best about this story?

    Kieran and Melissa's story was so heartbreakingly brilliant in it's honesty and candor. Mel's shame and guilt were almost palpable characters in this story. The demons of her past and the consequences of her decisions were so haunting. We watch her struggle to not only keep her head above water, but also to live and feel worthy of love. I found it refreshing that it was the heroine who was the more broken and dark of the pair. So often the hero swoops in and saves the heroine, but this time they saved each other.


    Have you listened to any of Seraphine Valentine and Teddy Hamilton ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to a few books narrated by Teddy Hamilton, but this was my first time hearing Seraphine Valentine. I thought she was amazing as Melissa and her and Teddy were an incredible narrating team! I really hope to listen to more titles by them either together or individually.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! Even though I previously read the book, being able to listen to it took it to another level and made me fall in love with the characters all over again! Teddy Hamilton as Kieran was especially amazing! He was the perfect amount of sweet and vulnerable, while still being incredibly sexy. I can't recommend this audiobook enough!


    Any additional comments?

    Poet is book 3 in the interconnected Avenues Ink series, but it can be read/listened to as a standalone. I feel it would be best enjoyed after reading Possession and Kingdom (books 1 and 2), however, since characters in the previous books appear throughout the series.

    "Poet "

    The book is great! I loved the narration. When you put these two together, you will never find one that you don’t like. This book can be read as a standalone so you won’t feel lost if you read it first. That being said, you still need to read the rest of the series. I have read the first and am going to get the second soon because the writing is just that good. The budding relationship that you read in this book is so sweet. Even with the downfalls, they still find their way out and find their happy ever after. Must read book!

    Story
    "Poet and his Muse"

    I was blown away by this book. I loved how beautifully A.M. Johnson wrote the story of Kieren and Melanie. This story has many facets ... addiction, forgiveness, blame, worry, hope, peace and love. Family support was also huge in this book. I thought the author did an excellent job of bringing Liam & Kelly from Kingdom and Paige & Declan from Possession into this story as family members and not the focus. Each book is a standalone and has intwining characters. This story will stick with me on many levels. I admired how Mel had so many accomplishments and was a survivor with the best attitude. Kieren was cool with his gift of poetry and understanding soul. The quotes included in this book were also fitting. I thought both narrators did an excellent performance with their realistic emotions. I highly recommend listening to this book!

    "Poet"

    This book (and series) is on the darker side of things, and honestly I don't like going that direction. Life is dark enough, reading is my escape and I want more happy stuff. That being said, the writing is extremely good and so is the narration. AM Johnson brings out interesting characters and issues that will open your eyes to a different POV.

    Where does Poet rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Poet definitely is in the top 5 of my favorite audiobooks.


    What other book might you compare Poet to and why?

    Making Faces by Amy Harmon


    What does Seraphine Valentine and Teddy Hamilton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The feelings that the characters were going through.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Anytime that Kieran sent Mel some poetry. It felt like we got a glimpse into both of their souls.

    This book is a piece of Art. I really love the story of Kieran and Melissa. The narration is also very great, easy to listen. This was my first listen to those two narrators. This is a standalone novel, but you really have to listen to the entire Series! I love this Series so much! A.M. Johnson is a very talented author.

    Story
    "Kieran and Melissa"

    My first book from A. M. Johnson and I love the style.
    Thought-provoking, emotionally raw, but not depressing despite making me cry a few times. My heart was breaking learning Melissa's story, happy how she fought her way out of a life of self-destruction, even happier how Kieran had a positive effect on her and helped with the last steps to healing. It was easy to fall in love with Kieran, his pure soul, good heart, he writes beautiful poetry, also refreshing change having him the unexperienced party. The journey to HEA is rough for both, but they make it.
    I will definitely check out her other books.
    Mr. Hamilton is one of my fave voices and I enjoy listening to his various voices, different for each character, expressing their emotions beautifully. My first listen from Ms. Valentine and loved what I heard, beautiful voice I listened to with pleasure. Looking forward to more.
