Some bits were repetitive but good story though

loved the suspense and twists in this story however I felt the constant repetition of the characters questioning each others feelings and motives was unnecessary. I skipped through alot if the third book because I'd heard it all before.

Conclusion

Even though the last book wrapped up everything, and finally the real culprit was revealed, I still felt that the book fell short. I don’t really do trilogy but the first book was so so good and I wanted to see what will the end be like and I was disappointed 😒. Harper didn’t do it for me in the last 2 books, too much of the same rehearsed drama for no reason👀

two thumbs way down!!

oh wow I can't believe how terrible this book is. the first book was the best in this series. thank goodness it's part of the romance package. do not waste your credit!!!
story- so weak it's unbelievable, still like the characters and was rooting for the leads but after a while the back and forth got really annoying.
writing- so repetitive it hurts to listen!! it came to a point where I wanted to give up but I feel like I invested too many hours to not go to the end.
narrators- Erin Mallon...still love her but the deep breathing is lol
sorry for this bashing review but didn't enjoy at all. got bored waiting for something to happen. save yourself the time

The title should have been ...

“Let’s Repeat the Same Words ad Nausium”. How many times does a reader need to be hit over the head with - I want him, I need him, I should go, I’m damaged.
I cannot believe this series got 5 stars in so many reviews. It seems that the author proved that you can put many sentences on repeat. Seriously, it was like watching TV reruns. You’ve seen it before so you can fast forward - A LOT!
What ended up being a mediocre trilogy could have been one good book.
There are diehard romance readers out there in “the land of lovers and dreams” who know this is true.
At for the narrators, Jason Clarke was a perfect Eric. I was a bit disappointed with Erin Mellon’s Harper. Something was off, perhaps too much sing-song in her cadence at the end of the sentences. I do like Ms. Mallon, just not this particular time. The character of Harper was annoying, too. How many times did she tell her mother to not call her step father “dad”? Too many too count. At which point, if Harper had a spine, mommy would have been told to cease contact until she referred to Mr. Kingston in the correct form when speaking to her daughter.
When I add up all the positives and negatives I honestly can’t give this book or the series more than 2.5 stars.

AN ENJOYABLE AND SUSPENSEFUL TRILOGY.. mostly

Hummm.. well, I’ve gone through many different and varied opinions of this trilogy as I was binge-listening to it.. and they ranged from gripping, masterful, sexy, tense, thrilling, exciting, tender and romantic to - repetitive, frustrating, boring, over-sexed and, in the end, a wee bit rushed. But, despite its peaks and troughs, this dual POV trilogy was very enjoyable, suspenseful and often intense as clues had to be slowly pieced together, a murderer with his (or her) reasons had to be uncovered, motives had to be revealed, all secrets had to be disclosed, trust had to be given and earned.. and foundations had to be laid for an all-consuming love.

Erin and Jason (sigh) did a fantastic job as usual with the narration and they infused, injected and inflected all the fundamental elements together to enable me to create colorful mental images, to bring the story and its characters to life and to cringe, blush, reel, rock and relish every word.

Worth a credit? Yes, IMO, it would’ve been.. however, I didn’t have to use any - and that’s the beauty of being a member of the Romance Package.. it’s a win win situation and there’s nothing to lose.. well except time and patience of course :)

WAY TO DRAWN OUT

just like in The Princess the book is filled with FLUFF to make it longer.... 3 chapters to have fight sex... he pushes she pushes back .... I skipped from 27 to 44 and many partial chapters in between and I got the gist.... the biggest issue I have is her lack of dealing with Isaac.... I feel like she left him there to maybe bring up later.... according to her moral of his story, you mess with the mob you still LIVE the good life in a mansion. I am pretty sure in reality you end up dead

3 books seem not necessary.

So I like the overall story but as continued to listen to the 2nd & 3rd book in the series I lost interest quick after 1st book. I’m not sure it takes 3 books to get to the conclusion. It just felt that something small happened in the plot then 3 sexual encounters happen then we got limited info to build plot and we went right back on the sex again. And it just felt like that the parts of the sexual encounters were more of the same, in all three books, no real build up and changes to move the story forward. Just repeating same issues over and over for 18+ hrs by the end. Just didn’t hit the mark this time for me.

Kind of a Let Down...

I really enjoyed the series, but this book was kind of a let down. The big secret reveal lacked any excitement, kinda blah.

Good trilogy

As all of this authors books it is way too wordy. Also the female narrators voice grates. The Male narrator is great.

Oh Harper

This story was great but Harper was so overly dramatic it was annoying. She emotional combat were just too much. She dragged on and on. My least favorite of the 3 books.
