"Such a truly beautiful story! The writing is gorgeous, the scenery is beautiful.... You should definitely pick up this one! Superb, unique, and sexy." (Tia Louise, Author)
What impact would it have when everything suddenly faded to black?
For Mia, a crowded subway ride changes her entire life. Retreating to the wilderness helps her cope with a world that is suddenly too loud, too turbulent. Her existence safely contained to the small cottage on the lake, she is unprepared for the neighbor that moves across the bay.
A career-ending injury has Jared permanently benched. His reputation as The Enforcer won’t survive the unanticipated responsibilities awaiting him. Away from the public eye, he adjusts to his new reality, under the quiet observation of the intriguing hermit on the other side of the water.
4 1/2 Stars for this emotional story!
I haven’t listened to an audiobook in a long time. I was going on road trip, so I thought I would download this and give it a try. I found the voices and the story mesmerizing right from the first chapter. But I was a little disappointed that when Mia was narrating she spoke for Jared’s voice ... I would have liked Jared to speak for himself as well as Mia speak for herself.
I loved the fact that Mia and Jared were older as the story took on a more mature theme. Ms Barker’s writing style is realistic with issues that affect everyday people. Mia was just so broken and I loved that she felt safe in Jared’s arms even thought she didn’t know why. And Jared is this big tuff ex-NHL player with a soft heart and protective nature for not only his sister and nephew, but for his neighbour Mia. And then the steamy scenes were HOT! A great start to the series.
