Summary

“A sensational page turner” (Romantic Times) A Romantic Times top pick!

Jason Hawk only came to his father's funeral to spit on his grave. That was the best the old man deserved from the bastard son he'd never given a damn about. The son whose plan for revenge had now been derailed by Aaron Hawk's death. Or had it? 

Kendall Chase was Aaron Hawk's smart and efficient executive assistant, and had come to know a side of the old man that few saw. But convincing Jason there had been more to his father, more to his whole life's story than Jason knew, wasn't easy. He was as tough as the father he hated. And more compelling than any man she'd ever met.

Convincing him the mysterious Hawk family book, a history now chronicling treachery and murder, had answers even for things yet to occur, was a much bigger job. Despite his attraction to her, the only part of Kendall's stories Jason believes is that his father's vicious widow is determined to see that Jason gets none of the inheritance left him.

In the end, Jason has to make a decision. Is the magic real? Or more importantly, is the revenge he's wanted for nearly 30 years, worth losing Kendall

A Great Listen

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher and found it very entertaining. A magic book from the past appears in the present to cause chaos in one man's life. This is the first book in a trilogy, it's hard to turn it off with interesting characters and fast moving plot plus some romance and humour. I'm definitely curious about book two and can't wait to listen to it.

Contemporary romance with a touch of magic

This is the first book in The Hawk Trilogy. The characters were interesting and kept me engaged. Jason is an infuriating, stubborn, vengeful, deceitful, and heartless man that has come to his father’s funeral to spit on his grave! Kendal is a loving a sweet young women that has gone through a lot in her life but has risen above expectations.

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

There is hate, danger, deceit, manipulation, love, honesty, action, suspense, magic, denial, misunderstandings, and revenge. This book seems to have it all but at times I got frustrated with Jason’s stubbornness and irrational mentality.

Kendall has more patience and determination than anyone I have ever seen. I really liked her character and actions the best.

Conclusion was excellent. The story wrapped up nicely with a few twists and turns to keep you guessing.

I’m looking forward to listening to book 2, although there is no indication of what is coming next.

The Line Must Live On

Underlying Peyton Place-worthy conniving and betrayal is the story of a young man, Jason Hawk, disavowed by his sperm donor and on his own at 16 after the tragic death of his mother, and a young woman, Kendall Chase, orphaned at age seven and trying to fulfill her boss' dying wishes. Jason is the last Hawk and there is a legend of a book which appears when the line is endangered. Fantasy is interwoven lightly into the drama, but the steamy sex scenes, while well-enough written, seem somewhat out of place in the overall context of the novel--not that the timing of the mutual exploration of attraction is wrong so much as it interrupts the plot flow. This is designated as the first book in a trilogy but is completely self-contained, so I am very curious to see in what direction the next book will take us. Narrator Rayna Cole offers a wide range of voices appropriate to the various characters.

excellent narration, meh story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, this book was just ok to me. The main character, Jason, spends so much time being a total dick, it's hard to actually relate to him, or even like him. To me, there was just too much ansxt and not enough action. The magic book thing was secondary to the overall story and the whole thing just sort of fell flat for me. Rayna Cole does a good job on the narration. Some people may really like all that sexual tension and gruff asshole main character thing, but it just wasn't for me.

Bitterness & anger can lead to great or terrible

*I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I've come to enjoy Rayna Cole as a narrator. I know I'll get feelings in her voice for each character, and I do. The hatred comes through so true when spoken with spit. She even voices the anger that is fulled by love so well. It's a mix of feelings and sounds to come through for me. You'll see the main character is male, but we have a female voice for the story. That's true, but Rayna voices Jason's personality and feelings very well. We also have the story from other character's POV's which are female, so it balances out the story.

So much bitterness and anger, it can be motivation for great or terrible things. A few people in this book demonstrate it. All these terrible feelings are fueled by love that was felt to be betrayed in some fashion. But there is one person that might be able to help one of the emotionally hurt people.

We get the story from a few different view points: Jason Hawk, Kendall Chase, and Alice Hawk. Wow, these people couldn't be more different than night and day. All have strong personalities. Alice and Jason have such anger stored up that they want to take it out on someone, but their actions are very different. Alice is cunning and vindictive, wanting all the money for herself. She will use her strong influence and money to make it happen her way. Jason is hurt by a father that never saw him, a man his mother always loved from a distance. This has pushed Jason to be who he is and do as he does. Kendall, she's the calm voice in all this. Kendall has a job to do for the deceased Aaron Hawk, and she's determined to carry out Aaron's last wishes, even if it kills her.

Kendall seems to stay herself strongly through the book. She has a job to do and she'll do it. Also, she's determined to not let Alice get away with what should be Jason's. Jason, now he's an interesting character. As much as he fights everything in the first half, he makes a turn for the second half. He has a plan and needs Kendall's help to accomplish it, though Kendall doesn't know that. Jason seems to be as much a tycoon as his father was. Jason's not sharing all about himself and I started to see this in the second half, making me even more curious about this mysterious, hot man.

The magic in this world... it's a very gentle addition to the world and story. Meaning, this world is not throwing fireballs at each other or have magic beings hiding from the normal world. It's an influence from a past that has a long line in the Hawk family.

This book has highly intimate moments present. Definitely an adult read. Wow. Jason really knows how to make images appear and stick in Kendall's mind. Great sensual writing by Justine Davis.

This book has a story that brings our two characters together, but it's more romance relationship building. The story is there, which keeps the characters together, the character and connection building created through events in the story. It's very good.
