I was a woman on the edge, shaken and shattered after a breakup that felt like it tore my entire world apart. My best friend, sick of watching me drown in misery and melancholy, harassed me until I agreed to go with her on a weeklong wilderness retreat.
She promised days spent bonding and getting in touch with our inner badasses. It was supposed to be all about the two of us roughing it and making do with the bare minimum. She assured me we were going to be pushed to our limits in ways that were unimaginable. Neither one of us could have ever guessed just how right she was.
Nowhere in the glossy brochure did it say anything about the fact I was going to have to battle the insufferable but deliciously rugged and sexy trail guide instead of the elements. The brochure also forgot to mention the part that warned when you left civilization behind, there was no place to pack your inhibitions and fears.
I was told that I would be facing a week where the only thing I should expect was the unexpected. However, no one mentioned that I was going to have to fight for my life - and my heart - as soon as I ventured into the unknown. I was a pro at hiding from my feelings, but when it came time to face a real threat, one that could change everything, I learned I was more of a no surrender, no retreat kind of girl.
Retreat is a stand-alone novel, the first in the Getaway series, which centers on the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women who dare to love them.
These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

Another hit series for Jay!
Jay Crownover makes a departure from her tatooed bad (good) boys and enters the world of ranchers/ cowboys. I was so looking forward to this book and I was not disappointed at all! I would given the story 10 stars if I could. I can't wait for the next book! I would have given 5 stars for Overall but the narration...
The only negative comment I have is with the narrator (as others have written). However, I'm not sure if it's the narrator or the director/ editor/ producer (who is responsible for the speed of narration?). When I started the book I wasn't sure how I was going to continue but then I changed the listening speed to from 1x to 1.25x on my device. I found the problem! This is the perfect speed. I had no trouble listening after that. In fact I couldn't stop!
Worth a credit? YES! But change the speed on your device.

Loved the story more than narration
Jay is a new to me author and I read the story before I listened to it. I love the story, so much happens to the heroine! I really liked her growth throughout. With the narration, I couldn't finish. I enjoyed the female parts but not the male. I am not sure if most had to do with the Wyoming accent (which I am from there and this is not a Wyoming accent) or just male in general but I just couldn't do it.
