Summary

From Amazon best-selling author Dakota Willink, comes the complete Cadence duet, a second-chance romance that will leave you breathless!

One love. One destiny. But it only takes one person to bring the house of cards tumbling down.

Seventeen years ago, Fitz Quinn stole the heart of Cadence Riley. He took her innocence, then left her broken. When a twist of fate brings them back together again, she quickly learns even time couldn’t dim their chemistry. Fitz was sexier than ever - successful and provocative. He became the man she always knew he would be, and the heat between them quickly became unbearable. Despite the promise she made to herself, she felt the walls to her heart start to crumble and began to fall all over again. 

However, things aren’t the same as they once were. Cadence is the driving force behind a non-profit organization where she handles each case with the determination of a shark. Fitz is known as Washington’s fixer. He is the CEO for a public relations firm - one that represents the politicians who fight against everything Cadence stands for. What do they say about opposites attract? 

Finding themselves at a crossroads, Fitz needs to decide if going against his father is worth pursuing a second chance with Cadence. One wrong move...and his reputation could be obliterated. For Cadence, she needs to let go of her secrets and forgive Fitz for leaving her alone all those years ago. But more importantly, she needs to decide if sacrificing her values is worth being with the only man she has ever loved.  

This audiobook includes both books in the two-part story, Cadence Untouched and Cadence Defined.

Great duet, well rounded but very political

I really enjoyed this duet. The duet spans 17 years and we first meet Cadence and Fitz when he has to do community service for a really bad situation (which I didn't actually think was his fault). Anyway, they meet at Cadence's parents' camp and they fall in love. For Fitz, it was instant, for Cadence,it took a little while. In the first book, we find out that this bad situation has made it so they couldn't be together.

17 years later, they see each other again. This time, Cadence has a really big secret and there are people who are against them coming together again. I loved how Fitz overcame her defenses and I really loved both characters as well as their friends. There was romance, a bit of action and heart-moments and a few tears because they suffered so much. So, I give this book 4.5 because I did think that Cadence took too long to reveal her secret but overall, I really liked how it played out. Be forewarned, DACA is discussed a lot and the author made this book quite political. It was well done (and I learned a bit) but if that is off putting, it's something to consider.

I have the ebook but also listened to the narration. I love Zachary Webber and he did not disappoint here either. Great ability to play multiple characters and play up the emotion of the words. Lacy Laurel also did really well and Zachary and Lacy were a great team that elevated the story. I really enjoyed the narration.

Political, Second Chance Romance

This is both books of a duet in one audiobook. I love that they did this for us listeners. The books are well written with a mostly good storyline. I couldn't quit listening because I really wanted to know how the romance played out. Seeing two people fall in love and then get a second chance is a favorite storyline of mine.

It would have been a 5 star rating because of the excellent writing. But how a book makes one feel is as much a part of the overall experience as the actual writing.

The first book had cheating which is a trigger of mine. I can't explain without giving the story away, so I must stop there. In the second book, the way the writer vilified the Republican party (I took it being as a whole) was offensive and I almost quit the book. All sides of politics has major issues. Always has, always will. There are greedy men and women everywhere and no particular party is right in every way. I have read other authors who were able to write about their stance on issues in a thought provoking way, using the political world even, and make an impact for their beliefs.

If those two issues don't bother you, you'll love the book.

Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel are great narrators. They are easy to listen to and really perform well. Lacy has such a unique voice. I was pleasantly surprised to hear her voice again and I know I will be recognizing her name for now on...even looking for more of her work. She ended the first book with so much passion and emotion that it won't be a performance I'll ever forget.

Oh My..

Wonderful!! So many twists and turns! I found my self hollaring at the characters! Trying to tell them what they needed to do! Dakota did an absolutely wonderful job with the story. I could not get my head out of the story to go to bed. And Zachary and Lacy did a great job with the narrations. Before it was done, I felt like I really knew these "people"! I can't wait to see what else Dakota has written! A MUST listen!

Beautiful Love story

Devin and Fitz are rich frat boys who got into trouble. They were assigned to work at Camp Riley a camp for the arts, for the summer. Cadence and Fitz were electric together from the start. The more time they spent together the closer they were. Fitz has a secret that could tear them apart and they could be never be together. Cadence first love, first heartbreak but would she really be ok when he left? You need tissues with this story!
I can't say enough about the narration by Lacy Laurel and Zachary Webber. They tell the story with such emotion, you get all the feels, love, anger, flirting, and heartbreak.

A melody that gives voice to beauty ...


A love like Fitz and Cadence has proves itself to be bigger than these two mere mortals.  Willink gives breathless it's own zip code with Cadence Duet.  She put her heart in each line and dragged my soul along for the ride. Webber and Laurel add emotion to a melody that gives voice to beauty as heartaching as it is inspiring. Young love takes on adult life and finds self- discovery along the way.  Willink hit all the right notes.
