it was a good story but every twist and turn was predicted. There was no shock not one. If this was a physical book I would have given up half way through to skip to the end to see if my prediction was correct, which it would have been and disappointment would insue. This reader used great influction with her voice.

First time I've done audio for a BDB. The book was great for a small BDB novel. Just a little glimse. J.R. Ward does not disappoint.

The reading was done ok. but much prefer this series in book form.

It was just a typical Monday. Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client. After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed. Or so I thought, until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch to. My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance. And that was the good part of my day. Because the gorgeous man who crouched down and looked at me like he wanted to eat me alive was none other than my ex.
