Publisher's Summary

Trinity Morris, cofounder of You're Not Alone, has a domestic violence past that still haunts her 10 years later. She is devoted to helping victims find freedom and to sharing information on how to help them through their emotional and violent trials.

While Trinity is presenting at a seminar, she comes across Gavin, a police officer who knows her past all too well. It's been 10 years since he last saw her, but the moment Gavin's eyes land on her, he's intent on getting to know the woman who has haunted his dreams all these years.

Can Gavin break through the wall that Trinity has built around herself, or will the present and the past collide and take her away from him again?

    Yes. This was a brilliant book. Any fans of romance should enjoy this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The book is full of great, strong characters. I really liked Gavin as he was understanding and non judgemental of women in abusive situations.


    What does Maria Marquis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I loved how she performed the male and female characters so realistically.


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

    I couldn't put this book down and spent as much time as I could listening in a few sittings.<br/>the story was fast paced and suspenseful. I enjoyed Gavin and Trinity's story arc. Their shared history made their friendship and burgeoning romance that more interesting.

    "Victims of domestic violence do not have to suffer alone"

    I had already read this book, which is a fantastic read, as Stacy Eaton is a retired cop and so brings realism into her harrowing storyline. And although I have listened to a few audio books, they have all previously been male narrators. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy listening to a female...how wrong I was. Maria Marquis does a fantastic job, and kept my attention all the way through. Her intonation and pitch is spot on, and she had me chuckling a few times, especially when narrating a child's words. I will definitely listen to more books narrated by Ms Marquis. Great job!

    This book takes a difficult subject domestic abuse and turns it into an emotional, romantic, suspense story full of hope<br/>It s Stacy's story and has clearly drawn on her experience as a police officer and her work with her local domestic violence centre. The e main character in the book uses to let delegates understand the impact of domestic violence are so insightful. The story is told from different aspects but still focuses on surviving.

    Would you consider the audio edition of You're Not Alone to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed the audio version, but have not read the print version, so I can't say.


    What other book might you compare You're Not Alone to and why?

    Distorted Loyalty by Stacy Eaton and Whether I'll Live or Die by Stacy Eaton. Her books are very emotional and gritty. She doesn't shield or hide the reality of ordinary people's lives. It's always an emotional ride and you learn something by experiencing it through her character's eyes.


    Have you listened to any of Maria Marquis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not listened before, but I loved this performance. The only thing that confused me at the beginning was that the first-person male part was also read by her, but later on, I got used to it and was able to figure out who was speaking.


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

    Not wanting to spoil the story, but the last struggle was very moving. Also, when Trinity discovers she's a passionate woman and capable of loving and being loved. She was so scarred by the abuse she received from Brendan.


    Any additional comments?

    Gavin is a hero anyone could love. He is truly a knight in shining armor, but also has a dark backstory which makes him understand and empathize with Trinity and others who were abused. The book was focused on Trinity, so we didn't get much of Gavin, but I hope there would be another story that goes into his struggles and overcoming abuse. Maybe a prequel?

    "You're Not Alone
    "

    Amazing book. Loved listening to the book. Domestic violence and abuse is very real and very wrong. As a daughter of a retired Law Enforcement Officer who had always told me that the cases of domestic violence is dangerous to all involved and had always hated when men and women commit domestic violence and was worried about the victims of domestic violence and always tried to get the help that they needed.

    "You're Not Alone"

    You're Not Alone is a very well written story that deals with a very difficult and all to frequent subject, domestic violence.

    Trinity Morris is a survivor. 10 years after escaping from a life riddled with domestic violence, she has become a very strong advocate for other victims, but she has also built a protective wall around herself. When she sees someone from her past, the rookie cop who saved her, things begin to change for her.

    The author, Stacy Eaton, does a marvelous job of developing the characters and expressing the emotions. This is further enhanced by Maria Marquis', the narrator, performance.

    "A great book!"

    This was an intense and emotional story. It keeps you captivated yet the subject is difficult. I enjoyed listening to this narrator as the story weaved from past to present in order for the reader to get the full understanding of what happened and how it still affects a person years later. I definitely recommend this book.

    "You're Truly Not Alone"

    This was a really good view into domestic violence and how it affects those abused. This took a very positive approach and helped highlight a couple that both survived their own trauma and came out the other side still positive and willing to accept another person in to their life an allow love again. We often don't understand what a person of domestic violence goes through or thinks and this story put you right in an abused persons head space. Maria Marquis had the perfect voice for this h and did an excellent job of pulling in the h's emotions and struggles with herself and with trust. Great narration and story

    "An emotionally, powerful story"

    The narrator, Maria Marquis, had a really nice, smooth voice. She spoke clearly, enunciated, and knew when to hit the right inflections that produced the perfect emotions. She did this book justice.

    Trinity suffered for years at the hands of her abusive husband who attacked her mentally and physically. She was an incredibly strong, compelling character. Trinity gives seminars in order to help people better understand the effects of domestic abuse. During those scenes, I sometimes forgot that I was listening to a romance novel. I heard what Trinity was saying and I felt like I was there, and I was deeply affected.

    Gavin was the responding officer who arrived at Trinity’s home just in time to save her life. Ten years have past and not a day went by that he didn’t wonder how she was doing. Seeing them reunite was like witnessing them each take a breath of fresh air that was long past due. Trinity is very much still in the healing process. He was so kind to her and understanding of her needs. He was sensitive to her triggers, her haunting past, and the trust issues she continues to struggle with.

    I liked how their romantic relationship evolved. It was sensual but not overly descriptive. It was left to the imagination, but the intense, emotional connection was there and highly palpable. There was also some great psychological insight into the minds of the victims, those around them, and even police officers involved. It was interesting to see the dynamics between all those characters. It’s something you don’t typically see in romance novels.

    The only thing that I wasn’t a fan of was the reiteration of the story from both Gavin and Trinity's points of view. At the start of each new chapter, the story would rewind a bit in order for it to be told from the other’s perspective. I felt that it halted the smooth flow of the story. I would’ve liked to have only gotten the crucial parts so it didn’t sound so repetitive.

    Nevertheless, I couldn’t stop listening to this book. The only reason I did was to take breathers because of the emotion it invoked in me. I was emotionally invested in the characters and their relationship. I was tearing up, swooning, and sighing left and right.

    This book showed that victims don’t always stay victims. There are long term effects of abuse on all people involved, not just the victim. Despite that, there is love and hope that pulls people out from the darkness. This story was surprisingly positive and inspiring. It was realistic and that was due in great part to the smooth progression and pacing of the story. There were elements of drama and suspense, but again, it held so much emotion that it made it both heartbreaking and heartwarming.

    I loved our heroine, she was resilient and smart.

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book! The characters were likeable and sweet but not boring. There were a few times a phrase would be repeated(first by our heroine and then by our hero) and that was annoying, but that is my only complaint. I loved how well the story and characters went together. Great narrator as well!

    "Incredible listen!"

    This book from the beginning had my attention. I am usually a romantic suspense listener, so while this has suspense, I was a little leary of the domestic abuse theme. Stacy Eaton takes hold of this very real issue and handles it head on. We meet Trinity, who was almost killed by her husband and we meet Gavin who had an abusive childhood. These two together find their way to love.

    I have to say that I am very impressed with the entire storyline. I was totally captured from the incident that Trinity came back from to starting her business helping others that are abused. There is so much in real life that is considered taboo and people do not want to talk about, and this book is real, explicit and really makes you think about what others may be going through. It is the kind of book that worms into your head and really makes you think while you are enjoying the interaction of the characters. I cannot say enough good things.

    Maria Marquis narrates this story perfectly. This is my first narration by Maria, and I will look forward to others.

    "Emotional and memorable"

    Emotionally compelling and very well written book that catches your attention from the beginning and doesn't let go.

    I truly loved this book. I found myself tearing up quite a few times throughout. It was difficult to listen to occasionally for me because I understood what the character was going through and empathized so strongly with her. I had to take a break a few times because I was getting so emotional over it. It was worth it though. This book is terrific.

    The author did an excellent job. I can't recommend this enough! The narration was very well executed as well. She emotes believably and speaks clearly.
