The heroine: Evangeline – was a child violin prodigy who was used by her parents for fame and money. When she started to grow up the money started to dry up since she was no longer such an oddity. She grew up in the spotlight and after leaving her parents she became a recluse with an extreme phobia.
The Hero(es): Ixion (a.k.a. Ix) – his former friend Jordan, that he shares a mysterious past with asks him to do a favor. Jordan is a lawyer that makes things happen and he is working with a psychologist to help a female client in a very non-standard form of aversion therapy.
The Story: In order to get rid of her phobia so she can play the violin again, Evangeline’s therapist suggests she move into a house where she is being filmed all the time and watched by a man. Ix stays in the basement of the mansion Evangeline is staying at. He isn’t supposed to reveal himself or talk to her.
This was sizzling hot and made even better by the narration. Christian Fox has a deep and sensuous voice which hit every button of mine. I plan to search out more books that he narrated. His voice was so perfect for the stalkerish voyeur that is Ix. I loved that name as well. Elena Wolf did the female narration and I have been impressed with her in other books and she did a good job with this one as well. Teddy Hamilton was added for the mysterious Jordan.
There was a lot of mystery in this book. There was a long history between Jordan and Ix and every time he referred to the past, I kept looking for his name in the blurbs of other J.A. Huss books to see if I was missing something that happened in a previous book. Jordan is mentioned but not Ix, so it is certainly possible though the other people he mentioned don’t appear in the blurbs either. Everything was explained as the story progressed and I really like the way it was done.
