So I'm a blubbering mess right now... but this isn't a girly weepy book. On the contrary, it's gritty and dark, told from the point of view of a hero ..Show More »who's on the cusp of being a full blown sociopath. The queen of MC romance has been quoted praising this book because Kim Jones has such a deep understanding of the MC world. I actually think the real impact this story makes comes from Kim Jones' understanding of what it's like to fight for relationships, dignity, and hope when death isn't merely knocking on but bashing down the door. Without giving away too much, I just want to say that for someone who's in a similar position and has gone through all the horrors the heroine endures, I admire Ms Jones for her ability to tap into the emotional journey that accompanies the descent into cancer (and chemo) hell. She gets it, and she treats this subject matter with respect. And if the occasional quiver in Joe Arden's voice is any indication, this awesome narrator gets it too. I read the ebook when it first came out, and have reread it several times since. But listening to this audio version takes it to a whole new level. A truly awesome story, beautifully translated to audiobook by one of my favourite narrators.
