Summary

In an instant he became her hero. Then he became her lover and her friend. 

My name is Jaxon Hart. 

You watched me grow up. You watched me fight for my life. Now, I’m fighting for hers. 

From the second I laid eyes on Annika Leander, I wanted to help her. Protect her. Vindicate her. But she’s got baggage to get through. Hell, we both do. 

A funny thing happens, though, when you finally connect with someone in a different way than you ever have before. The baggage doesn’t seem so heavy. 

I suppose that’s really the only thing that matters when the heart gets involved.

I personally loved this book!!

I love any book by Muffy Newtown and this was no exception. This follows the son from the series and I actually bought this first and listened and loved it! It had everything i look for...sports, romance and chemistry. I love the pacing and it was never dull for me. The narrators were spot on. Good job

Emotional Journey

So many emotions! I first met Jaxon as a child earlier in the series. His life has already had it's share of hard times. Now he is on the edge of adulthood, and one terrible night changes his life yet again. However, even from the darkest of times, life can give you a gift. Jaxon and Annika are two strong characters; and quite frankly, they are inspirational.
However, this isn't just the story of Jaxon and Annika. There is also some Hart family storyline. Let me just say that this family can bring me to tears, but I love it that way! I'm hoping this isn't the end of this family's saga.

Dissapointed

A full book about rape is not what I was looking for. This is about teenagers not continuing story about the Harts. I want my credit back.

Story Picks up with Jaxon (Jason's son) in College

This book was not as good as the other Hart books. That's not to say I didn't barrel through this reading like a freight train without brakes. I guess I can't really relate as well to these college kids as I did the adults. Carter had them talking so brash and trashy sometimes, it made me cringe. The story centered around every female college kid's worst nightmare. Jaxon was the knight in shining armor to Annika's damsel. Subject matter aside, it was cute how he helped her but not swoon-worthy like books 1 & 2 were.

As for the narrators, I didn't like Alex's reading at first but then I kind of grew to like his voice. However, Muffy, I could not stand. Way too breathy and the way she said Annika before each chapter she read was like Annikaaaaa. If you listen to it, you'll know what I mean. Her inflections and the delivery of the lines grated on me. She's why I gave the performance 3 stars.

Very serious subject matter!!!

I loved listening to Alex Kydd. Great narration voice. And Muffy was good but I didn't like the sensitive subject matter. I understand the importance of said subject matter being bought to the attention of the readers, because it is important and does happen, but I just wish Jaxon's story had went in another light hearted direction.

Jaxon was sensitive, caring and an all around good guy but l just didn't like the story line. The first 2 books in this series were excellent, romantic and fun.
Alex is a great narrator and I will definitely listen to him again but hopefully with a more satisfying storyline. I didn't like the awful sad parts of the book. I listened to the entire book and at least there's this awareness that's sometimes forgotten about.

Perfect

I totally love this book. Everything! The story, the narration - the things we learned about the Harts. And Annika! Perfect :-)
The subject is sooo important. Thank you for writing this.

Harts all over...

STORY: This is the story of Jaxon, the adopted son of football great Jason, whom we met in Books 1 and 2 of this series. What a series it has been so far. Jaxon, inadvertently, comes to the rescue of a girl named Annika and this book deals with the fallout from that. (Without going into detail, this was a very apropos subject with regards to what the past few years in the US has been about.) Jaxon is such a sweet grown up now, and I say that even though I still think of him as the cute little kid that ran up to hug Jason in the first book and broke my heart in the process. I like how the book touches on the other topic of adoption, and what that does with an adult child (Jaxon) and the adoptive parent (Jason). I've always wondered about that, and it was quite beautifully done, IMO.

SIDE STORY: Without going into spoilers on this one, and it's super easy to do, there is a Side Story about a possible sibling for Jaxon. (His biological Dad had died before the first book and had cheated on his Mom.) Let me just say that the answer put me into shock. I need another book about this, M.E. Carter, please!!!

NARRATION: Alex Kydd, if that is the real name and not a pseudonym, was the perfect choice. The first narrator for Jason and for the first 2 books was Jacob Morgan; and, even though the characters Jaxon and Jason aren't blood related, Alex felt like the right choice for Jaxon. It almost felt like him and Jacob Morgan were the same person, just with different variations in tone/pitch. Great casting for him for sure. Muffy Newtown...I am 99.9% sure that Muffy is someone else, but won't say to not spoil it. She's a great narrator and has great male voices, so I mostly like everything she narrates. This was no exception, and she did great with the seriousness of the topic involved. (I would've probably needed a happy/joke book to read after this, because it's awful at points. I had to take a breather myself; and I had to read this book in pieces due to the subject being addressed.)

WORTH A CREDIT: I bought this book, after hearing the first 2 and don't regret it. :-)

Wow ! What a book !

This was one of the best books I've read. It did cover some emotional and terrible situations which do happen in everyday lives of people. Narrators were fabulous. A must read.
