Summary

Brigs McGregor is crawling out from the ashes. After losing his wife and son in a car accident and his job from his subsequent downward spiral, he's finally moving forward, getting a prestigious teaching position at the University of London and a new life in the city. Slowly but surely he's pushing past the guilt and putting his tragic past behind him...until he sees her.

Natasha Trudeau once loved a man so much that she thought she'd die without him. But their love was wrong, doomed from the start, and when their world crashed around them, Natasha was nearly buried in the rubble. It took years of moving on to forget him, and now that she's in London, she's ready to start again...until she sees him.

Because some loves are too dangerous to ever indulge.

And some loves are far too powerful to ignore.

Their love just might be the life and the death of them.

Contains mature themes.

Good continuation of the series

Briggs story lived up to my expectations. An enjoyable listen but there were some irritations with the narration of accents for Brit natives.

Another sublime winner from Ms. Halle!

First of all, I don't even have to read story previews from this author before I buy her books/audio books. She NEVER fails to deliver a great read. The narrators in this book were beyond amazing and I loved every second. The worse part of any Karina Halle book is when it's over and I have to wait for another. She gives such life and realistic stories to the world. I can't even recommend it highly enough. Get it. You're welcome. ;)

cheaters gonna chest

I could not finish it. These two set out to get close and emotionally cheat while he was married. the minute she started flirting with him, as a married man, he should have shut that down.

The writing was great.
The narrators were fantastic.
The story left a bad taste in my mouth.

not my cup of tea

I can't get down with the Affairs even just emotional ones and even though they were trying to be respectful it just kind of kills it for me.

Not here for infidelity

I liked the Pact and the Play but this one did not impress me. I never really liked the two main characters because of how their relationship started. I tried so hard to give this one a chance but the cheating and dishonesty ruined the love story for me.

However I did like the Narrators' performances.

What a head case!

Just NO! I really enjoyed the other books in this series but this one? The heroine needs a check up from the neck up. I could not relate to her misguided angst at all. Her reactions to the threats from her female best friend were ridiculous. I don’t understand the high ratings.

The book is well written and easy to listen to. The author just missed the mark with the psychology aspect of the situation. I had to stop listening. Yep, when I start bursting out with for f***sake, it’s time to move on to a new story. I just could not get through it to the end. So sad. :(

Story line is ridiculous

I loved her other books; unfortunately, this one has done nothing for me but irritate me. The characters are way to whiny and over the top. The smothering roommate and the fact that they allowed her nonsense to go on for so long, i rolled my eyes way to much through this book. Don’t get me started on the female narrator and her wet mouth as she talks.

Intense Love Story

This was my favorite love story. Intense but precious. I couldn’t get anything done until the book was over, I hung on to every word.

Kinda annoyed me

It was a pretty good romance but, the storyline kind of got in my nerves. I didn't care for the main female character.

A painful beauty

This is definitely a book that makes you feel. It's full of beauty as it is pain. I love anything Karina Halle writes, and this second chance romance is took my heart for a ride.

Fav so far

This was my favourite of the series so far. It was written similarly to the others but something about the characters just sparked for me. It was easy to get swept up into a love story both tragic and sweet. And a happy ending to wrap it up with a nice red bow
