Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best seller Ella James, an unforgettable forbidden romance with a jaw-dropping twist....

Homer Carnegie. Admit it - you know my name. Your kid's got my e-trading card. Your husband sits up straighter when I stroll onto the TV screen. He knows I'm going to crack the bat and save the day. Even your grandma's jonesing for my autograph. But women my age? They're the worst. Or would that be the best? 

It's not my fault they line up at the door. They catch my balls all right, two at a time sometimes. Believe me, everybody wins. 

At least they did - until the video. I heard TMZ paid a million for a bird's eye view of Homer on his A-game. The only folks who didn't watch with eager eyes? Red Sox management. They want me benched, or worse, shipped off to rehab. 

It's a long story, what happens next. How I end up on a boat, bound for the world's most remote island: Tristan da Cunha. Just a speck of dust in the Atlantic. 

Except my heart is there.
I don't know that when I step onto the boat.
I don't know a lot of things.
What I'll covet....
What I'll lose....

Tough subjects Beautifully written 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Ella James is a new author to me. She wrote a love story of two people who reconnect years later after seeing each other during a tragedy when they were children. Each has their demons. Together they heal each other. Twist at the end was so welcome. The narration of Stacey Holmes (what a beautiful accent) and Tim Paige was flawless. I loved this book. ❤❤❤❤❤

Good story good narrative no regrets

I'm glad I didn't go by the other reviews because I really enjoyed this book.
I didn't find it confusing in the least and it held my attention all the way through.
I don't regret choosing it and I'd have no problem recommending it to others.

Pretty dang intense, emotionally!

Wow, this was a tough listen, not because it isn’t a well written book, because the subject matter is difficult. I was a moody lady, while listening to this book, and it was a relief to get through it because it really got to me. One thing I learned, while listening, is that a person who is trying to recover from drug addiction, has a more difficult road to recovery, then I thought. I understand now, why so many choose to end their lives then go through the hell required to get clean and stay clean.

Both the Hero and the Heroine have suffered childhood trauma that has continued to shape their world. Therefore, they understand each other and are ideally suited. Unfortunately, they have battle they must fight and win in order to be together.

This is a must listen!

A modern version of an ancient Greek myth

Ancient seafaring peoples had myths describing encounters between strange (foreign) men and native women. Often the men sailed away leaving a pregnant broken hearted woman behind. If the two lovers were, in fact, star crossed soulmates, the ensuing complications created interest, angst and turmoil for generations. This is an excellent modern telling of this ancient tale. Very well done!!!

Should have been 5🤦🏼‍♀️

It is just toooooo loooooooong!! Honestly pretty much ALL of part 1 can be skipped, and 1/4 of part 2!! However the Narration is fabulous!!! I was unfamiliar with both but hope to hear more from them! ( they really save the entire listen!!)
