Publisher's Summary

A top 30 Amazon best seller 

King (noun):
1) Having the highest rank in a dominance hierarchy
2) The most powerful man in a group
3) Liam Black

He was a stranger to me, a dark and dangerous presence who materialized from the shadows one rainy night to save me from a vicious attack. I didn’t know his name or where he was from. All I knew was that the only place I’d ever felt safe was in his arms.

But safety is an illusion. And not every savior is a hero.

And - as I’d soon find out - having a king save your life comes with a price. 

Liam Black wanted something from me in return.

Wow! Wow! Wow!

I absolutely loved this book. From the very beginning I knew this book was going to be a favourite of mine. It was wonderfully written,the characters had depth and the story drew me in with its mystery. An absolute five star read. Now off to read Killian’s story I’m expecting great things...

I loved this book (beautifully cruel) a few months ago when I bought the ebook - it was totally a 5⭐️ read. I didn’t think anything could make it any better but oh my the audio version was to die for 🔥both of the narrators out did themselves with such convincing performances. Troy Duran is a new narrator to me and the very second he spoke his first word as Liam I was hooked. His voice is so deep and soulful, full of power and all the chemistry that comes with Liams character. The perfect choice I only hope that we get to hear him again voicing Killian. If I could give more than 5⭐️ I would it was totally worth it ❤️

EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER WAS A FICTIONAL FEAST

This was a deliciously unique utterly compelling treat to listen to because there’s a mysterious handsome suited stranger who oozes danger and intrigue in the storyline and he has (for nearly a year) been randomly coming into the Diner where Truvy is a waitress. He only sits in her section, he never talks more than absolutely necessary and he can’t take his eyes off her. Their chemistry sizzles and sparks.. then one day he says more - he warns her off.. but his smoulder-fest look betrays his words. However, when Tru’s attacked one night, it’ll be him that’ll come to her rescue.. it’ll be his sexy Irish brogue that’ll have her melting with desire.. and it’ll be his crazy option 3) suggestion that’ll change everything. Because, even though Liam is determined to stay away, he’s a conflicted obsessed man with only two options.. 1) have his beautiful temptation which will put her life in danger.. or 2) turn his back and walk away. But hurrah, the mysterious mastermind comes up with a rock and a hard place option 3) - a suggestion that may just work if Tru agrees.. but it may also spectacularly backfire too.

Oh how I loved loved loved this story.. their chemistry and connection was off - the - charts, the intrigue as to who he is was dripping with mystery and intrigue.. the romance was strong and inevitable.. the sexcapades were desperate clashes of two souls coming together.. and their conversations were feisty and banter fuelled. A feisty strong heroine about to become a Lawyer who’s shy but no pushover.. a dark sexy King who can only offer a precise number of delicious days and nights.. a mix of interesting secondary characters.. a wonderful twist sewn in at the end.. and beautiful happily ever afters. Duet style dual POV narration made this well-written love story build and flow so well.. and Marnye and Troy did a brilliant job at bringing the compulsive and often playful plot and it’s characters to life.

Worth a credit? Oh boy.. the drool-worthy anticipation.. the sizzling fireworks and feels.. the swoon-worthy tattooed alpha badass.. (.. sigh) well I’d give him.. err 🙇🏻‍♀️ 🙅🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ I mean the book the book 10 stars if I could.. and yes it’s one-hundred percent creditworthy.

Fun and well done

This book merits five stars in all three categories. Engaging primary and secondary characters. It is well-paced to keep the listener tuned in from beginning to end.

Wonderful Duet Narration

I really liked the book, but the Duet narration of the audio book made this story so much better. The narrators were perfect!

Hooked

I got hooked from the moment I heard the male narrators’ voice until the end. It wasn’t what I thought it would be and that’s a good thing cause it was so much better. You definitely listen to it.

Steamy story with drool worthy narration

I enjoyed this story, but I am in the minority in thinking it's just "pretty good". I enjoyed Tru as a strong female heroine and the sexy alpha, Liam, (Irish brogue), but overall it was just another story about two people with off the charts chemistry. Liam and Tru are very good together (although it seems unlikely that it takes a year for the two to hold a conversation). The author is a truly talented writer, and I am in the minority in thinking this listen was not stellar. Troy Duran definitely made Liam swoon worthy. The plot however, though enjoyable, was not stellar IMO.

yes!

This is how you do a duel narrated romance novel. I loved loved loved how the spoken parts were voiced by their respective narrators despite who's chapter is was. It can be awkward as heck to hear a man trying to voice a female character during the throes of love. Just saying. These two do a spectacular job and Troy did Liam justice in the sexy Irishman department. G. T. Geissinger does sexy alphas with a squishy side like no one else can.
