Publisher's Summary

Gideon calls me his angel, but he’s the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own.
The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn’t sure I was strong enough to bear.
At the brightest time in our lives, the darkness of his past encroached and threatened everything we’d worked so hard for. We faced a terrible choice: the familiar safety of the lives we’d had before each other or the fight for a future that suddenly seemed an impossible and hopeless dream…

Lacked depth

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Because I love Eva and Gideon sooooo much I would and have recommended this book to my friends, if only to hear their opinions.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

it left me gagging for more in a disappointed kind of way.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

Dont want to risk spoiling it for others.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes , how do I answer this without a spoiler? Let's just say I did shade a tear...


Any additional comments?

I felt after having waited for the book for such a long time it would have a lot of depth but was disappointed in that there was a lot of sex scenes when we could have moved on with the story. Don't misunderstand me I did enjoy the book but felt it centered a lot on their sex lives than on delivering the story. I loved the fact that we got to hear Gideon's PoV . Am still a big fan of Gideon and Eva and am hoping the last book will see them run off into the sunshine.

Not up to scratch

We've all been waiting for book 4, so perhaps the anticipation built too high for me.

The narration alternates between Gideon and Ava and, IMO, it spoils the build up of the story. The quality of the writing remains good (so, so much better than 50 Shades).

Quick synopsis: we learn more about Gideon's past trauma, his determination to protect Ava from her past. New threats pop up, too, and Gideon probably goes overboard to protect her. Ava, once again, breaks her promise to never leave and once again, rips Gideon's soul apart. That's how this book ends: they reunite.

Gideon has become my favourite of the two. He begins to face his demons head on, initially to keep Ava, but begins to recognise it's for himself. Ava fights the world to protect him but goes too far, pushing him too hard and too quickly.

And... here we are, waiting with anticipation for book 5!
