This was a disturbing read. The main character was clearly a needy, damaged girl with many personality vulnerabilities. It was laughable how often we heard that she was "good...so good". This went on whilst she ordered her ex-boyfriends nose to be smashed in for breaking her heart 3 years ago and put her mother down ceaselessly. The romantic male lead was utterly unconvincing, spending much of his time marvelling as to how "truly good and innocent and pure" this somewhat trashy, uninspiring woman was. The sex scenes tried too hard (where did she get the idea spit was so erotic??) and the storyline was cardboard. It's a solid "no" from me.
OMG, what an incredible, unpredictable, beautiful love story this was! The first scene between the leads was rather shocking as it was devastating and quite broken. Then, the author took the reader back to the past, to build the story and smoothly landed in the present tense. The blend of incredible leads, secondary characters, great writing style, as well as the fabulous performance of narrators made this an awesome listen!---Actually, a superb listen! Shirl Rae is one of my favorite narrators and she did so well in her performance in this one, and Marc Bachmann's voice was sexy as hell.
Maverick Hart IS "badass personified" as a Navy SEAL. Yes he is a man-whore, but in broader terms he's a part of a brotherhood that was wonderful and so touching to explore. I loved Maverick's POV! He had such a crude, dirty mouth, especially with his SEAL brothers...but it all felt like a realistic depiction of their masculine world. You can’t help but admire and fall in love with these fierce SEAL brothers!
Maverick is a very strong man who leaves no challenge unanswered, and is thrown into a tailspin when he is rejected by the beautiful, but guarded Windsor Forbes. Yet what started as a game between predator and prey turned into an intense, extraordinary, deeply emotional love. I loved Maverick and Windsor together so much, especially their sassy humor, electric chemistry, witty banter, and hot-torrid love! There are so many powerful and romantic moments that Maverick, the adrenaline-seeking, tough as nails, yet soft as velvet, Navy SEAL hottie gave to Windsor.—Seriously, very beautiful MUCH ANTICIPATED love scenes, and romance at it’s purest. *Sigh*
Overall, this book drew out a great depth of emotions in me. I was angry at both Maverick & Windsor’s decisions, at times, but more than anything I was enchanted with how they never gave up and worked things out, reaching a satisfying HEA. There is also tragedy, and I cried noisily while I was driving to work, and had to pull it together. This brings me to the next book, all I can say is that I am going to be greatly conflicted at heart when I read it. Boy does Robinson have a feat ahead of herself with Morganna’s book!!! I was so impressed with this book as her debut, that I know she will not disappoint! What a great start to a series!!!!
EXCELLENT AUDIOBOOK! LOVED IT!

I am a ROMANCE addict. I will not listen to anything else. But I need more. I need the story to be more than just the relationship. I hope this make sense. This book had NOTHING else happening. I need a murder, or a BIG SECRET, or SOMETHING.
The sad thing is I really liked the characters. I just needed more.
