Publisher's Summary

I come from a family of fighters. I always thought I'd follow in their shadows, becoming unstoppable in the ring. That changed the day I saved the life of a woman I loved, but could never have. My brother hailed me as a hero, and my reward was a wheelchair. Paralyzed, my life became an inescapable nightmare. Until I met her. Ash Mabie had a heart-stopping smile and a laugh that numbed the rage and resentment brewing inside of me. She showed me that even the darkest night still had stars, and it didn't matter one bit that you had to lie in the weeds to see them. I was a jaded asshole who fell for a girl with a knack for running away. I couldn't even walk but I would have spent a lifetime chasing her. Now, I'm on the ropes during the toughest battles of my life. Fighting the shadows of our past. Fighting to reclaim my future. Fighting for her.

Good story!

This audiobook deals with a handicapped hero who is lovesick for his brother's wife and the awkward girl who has never really belonged or been loved by anyone. I enjoyed the story, the characters and loved the ending. Narration was well performed.

Not my kind of story

I really like this author but this book was by far the worst I’ve read. Super childish and I don’t agree with the lifestyle that the main characters live. Really just a super sad situation.

pretty good

The story was as good as the last ones. I'm still not impressed with the female narrator. I'm not sure what it is. The male narrator is great.

Aly Martinez is Amazing

LOVED THIS BOOK!
Aly just can't write a mediocre book.
The relationships that intertwine in this one relating to Till's story make for great storytelling.
Flint's and Ash's story made me cry, laugh and yell. If I could change anything it would be regarding their ages. More maturity would make me happier.
Still, great book.
Now on to Quarry's story!

Flint and Ash <3

I just love everything Aly Martinez writes. Her stories have so much depth and are so well written. And this is no exception. Flint trying to fight off his almost insta-love for Ash and Ash that keeps running from life out of necessity. All around a very good story.
Narrators were awesome, and Carson is becoming a fave male narrator.

Flint breaks my heart

This book was just as good the second time as the first and I absolutely loved Flint and Ash. There was so much about this book that I forgot from the first read and the story of Flint and Ash will break your heart.

Laura Jennings' reading of Ash was really well done. She came across as both vulnerable and worldly at the same time. And Carson Beck was perfect as Flint. Flint has a lot of ups and downs in this book and the way Carson reads Flint makes you feel like you're there in story with them.

I'm definitely going back to listen to this one again.

Love this book

It is funny and sad at time. But when you finally get to the end. The book was definitely worth listening to. Can't wait to hear the rest of the books from this series
