My first from J.A Redmerski and what an introduction!!! Wow. So deep, complex, gripping, riddled with a dark dirty underworld of secrets..Have to read more for J.A now... I am Hooked!
I listened to this on Audible.... and I loved Sarai's narrator, she was perfect! Perfect for her...I really enjoyed having the male narrator for Viktor too. Although he seemed a little older than i was expecting, but got used to him and grew to love his tones!
Now the story, oh my goodness i was not expecting this at all, so intense, so gripping, so emotional, so ohhhhhh.
I was hanging on every word spoken, I couldn't wait to listen more, Grabbing every chance to take a listen.....
I loved Sarai's fight, with everything she has been through, she had an inner strength like no other. Determined.
Viktor, oh I can see the attraction Sarai had to him, I was engrossed, such control, but Sarai got under his skin, made me chuckle how she managed what no one else could.
Loved the ending.... loved it, I do like a 'What is going to happen with them?' I can not wait for the sequel.

The overall story is compelling and once I got past the first few chapters I kept listening. The female narrator was a lot better than the male.
Believe I would have liked it a little more if there were different narrators. Kate Reinders sounded like a valley girl teenager at times instead of a 23 year old woman by her voice and by Redmerski's writing and Stephen Bel Davies had no intonation in his voice whatsoever. Hard to tell when he was speaking the words of Victor or Victor's thoughts. He had no depth as the voice of a trained assassin. He did much better faking an accent with Niklas. The sex scenes seemed crude rather than sexy. Doubt I'll read/listen to other books by Redmerski. Especially if they're read by the same narrators.

Dude! This was so good... Ok... so no this was not in the romance section...but who cares...it was still romance... but the true story lies with Sarai and Victor... OMG! So good.
So Sarai was kidnapped like years ago...when she was 14 I think...but she grew up the play thing of a drug cartel king pin... so when Victor comes strolling in, she knows he is her only way out.. So she eventually gets out, by hiding in Victor's car...but Victor is like the bad-to-the-bone assassin and so he knows she was back there...
Anyway...a lot of stuff happens, and Victor ends up keep Sarai with him... and which is not a good thing...because the company he works for...wants Sarai dead... So... what a roller-coaster this book was... I was on pins and needles throughout most of it...
The romance is a bit subtle in this one... but it is there... the angsty tension between Sarai and Victor...WOWZA!
Again with dual narration... Ok... I hate dual narration...hate it... but this one I tolerated because the book was just so darn good. I like the male and female narrators alone, and I wish if they were going to do the dual narration thing...they would do it simultaneously... but it wasn't... When your in Sarai's head...the female narrator reads, and when your in Victor's head the male narrator reads... it works, but it could have been a bit better...
All in all.. the book deserves a 5 for awesome of the storyline, a 4.5 for narration, and a 5 for overallness... The rest of the series is an Instant Download...
Great Buy, Credit or Sale!
