Character development: 🥺🤭🤫😕😎
The heroine(s): Natalie Peterson – Her fiancé David disappeared five years ago on the eve of their wedding. Her current boyfriend just broke up with her because she has been living in the past. She freely admits that what happened to her fiancé damaged her.
The Hero(es): Kage (a.k.a. Kasimir Portnov) – He is a dangerous man and is in town to take care of loose ends in the form of Natalie Peterson. However, when he sees her and she is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen, he is conflicted. He buys the house next door to hers and sets out to learn more about her.
The Story: Natalie and Kage are attracted to each other at first site. Though Natalie is still damaged by her past and Kage is not the kind of guy who pushes too far when a woman is not ready. Though he makes a decision to put her under his protection even though it is dangerous for both of them if his boss finds out he didn’t get the job done.
These two have explosive chemistry and then some! Kage is quite the dirty talker and heats things up at a moments notice. Natalie doesn’t really know what to think of it all. I liked the mystery and danger of it all and the fact that Kage is large, sexy and capable.
The narration was definitely one of the best I have heard. It was three narrators and done in a style like a play or script read through. Where multiple narrators are used within each chapter. I like it this way so much more than when a book is in single or dual POV and one narrator does the entire chapter or book.
The narrators were Troy Duran, Brooke Daniels and Michelle Sparks. I love Troy Duran’s super deep and gravelly voice. It is very sexy and matches Kage to a T. Brooke Daniels has a soft melodical voice which works great for Natalie and Michelle Sparks has a smart and snarky voice which is more than perfect for Natalie’s best friend Sloane.
