At fifteen I fell in love. His name was Jake Stephens and he took the abandoned, lonely girl I had been and made me whole. His love was a pure and unconditional love that made every day better than the last; a fairy tale of my very own. But this story isn't about Jake. It's about Abel Madden; the man I meet after the fairy tale goes to hell. A cocky, arrogant man who says what he wants, does as he pleases, and makes no excuses for it. He irritates me--downright pisses me off at times--but he also brings me back to life. My name is Sidney Ellis and this is my story of finding love twice--the first when I needed it most and the second when I never saw it coming.

Fabulous book that made me cry

I am not a crier but this book made me cry three or four times. I have recently become a huge fan of this storytelling team so when I saw this book, I snatched it up without even reading what it was about; and, as with the other books I’ve listened to from this trio, I finished it in one day. Although it’s quite different from what I was expecting, I absolutely loved it. It’s very well written and beautifully told. L.A. Fiore pulls you into the story with the very first word and introduces the characters in such a way that you feel as if you know them intimately; you become a part of their world, emotionally invested, and you feel what they feel. Then, Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks come along and give these characters voices that sound exactly like you expect, bringing the book, the characters and their world to life. You laugh and cry, and feel every other emotion right along with them.....I even started craving chocolate cake! It’s an excellent book, definitely credit worthy and, IMHO, you can’t go wrong with any book that has one or all of these three names on the front.

A book that will stay with you

There are some books that just grab you from the start, and this one did just that. And it will stay with you after, a complete and total book hangover. LA Fiore is a wonderful storyteller, but with this book in particular, I have been enraptured. Sydney's childhood is less than happy, until she is a freshman in high school. Life for her changes when she meets Jake. Who meets their soulmate in high school? This lucky girl has finally found the happiness she has longed for...until tragedy strikes. Now with a new path, and a new life, she sets out to find a new happiness with someone completely the opposite of Jake. Abel, a broody alpha male, is a broken man, so we take the journey with these two to see if they can heal together. With a little suspense thrown in, it's truly a my kind of gem to hear. LA Fiore's depiction of love in this story resonates with such deeply real characters, making every emotion seem to be happening to the reader. You will feel the pain of loneliness and loss, love and excitement.

Listening to this story I think really brings it to life, giving the story real passion and credibility. Tracy Marks has a way of invoking the emotions of Sydney so authentically your heart will feel every one. Aaron Shedlock creates Abel with his gruffness and underlying tenderness so it's so easy to fall in love with him. Perfect narration.
