Publisher's Summary

Two broken people in a city fueled by sin.

Maddie isn’t looking to be saved. She knows the only person you can count on is yourself. Her moral compass might not point true north these days - but at least she’s still standing.

The military taught Tyler about loyalty. Being there for your brothers is the only thing that matters - but when it mattered most, he wasn’t.

She’s got a ticket straight to hell. He’s already been there and back.

She needs to win. He just needs to stop fighting.

Some sins scar your soul so deeply, you'll never be the same.

But this devil in disguise might just be the angel he needs to forgive himself.

Fabulous Collaboration

Loved it! I wasn't sure what to expect as I had read quite a few of Julie's books before but this was the first time I had read any of Johnathan's work so ... the collaboration works so well, you don't feel like you are reading a section written by one person and then another by someone else, it's seamless. The story - intriguing, the characters - likeable and I need to see where this goes so eagerly anticipating book 2.

Unsure how I feel about this book

Great characters, great sex scenes but the story was predictable. I was able to pick the connection between the characters in about chapter 3. I like to be shocked caught off guard if you will.

A CREATIVE & MULTI-LAYERED TEN STAR MASTERPIECE

Julie and Johnathan have truly written something special with this amazing four book series.. it’s utterly unique, sexy as sin, passionate and romantic, angst drama and suspense filled and each and every book is 100% enjoyable, compelling, entertaining and addictive. From the first book to the last, the range of feels within each are breathtaking, the twists are torturous wonders, the characters and storyline are multi-layered and deep.. and the banter is free-flowing perfection. Then there’s the hero and heroine’s lol inner monologues/dialogues (which I’m not usually a fan of).. but these mental musings are so humorous, amusing and insightful and I longed for more. The vast character development along their rollercoaster four book journey was mesmerizing and it led them into becoming the people they were always meant to be. Before the visible and invisible scars, before tragedy had struck, before duty had been served, before the years of hurt and rejection, before the loss of loved ones.. and before life-threatening danger. Forgiveness, understanding, a soul-to-soul bond.. and a sigh-worthy toe-curling love would eventually lead these soul mates into the beautiful calm waters of a HEA.. but they endured white-knuckle waves, raging seas, shark infested waters and a tsunami of feels before reaching them.

From Maddie and Tyler’s introduction in book 1, you learn of their very different lifestyles, their damaged haunted souls, their bitter and broken backstories, their beliefs and their fortuitous first meeting. And, while their heated attraction, seismic chemistry, invisible bonds and panty-melting sexy times pull them closer and closer, Fate, Destiny, Karma.. (and maybe even God himself) are all solemnly shaking their heads, waggling their forefingers from side to side in negative admonishment and collectively warning them and the listener to beware.. because there will be no happy ending for Maddie and Tyler until the last few chapters of book 4.

Worth a credit? One thousand x YES.. binge-worthy listening at its absolute finest.. each book leaves you craving the next and there’s no wonder it’s going to be made into something compelling for tv. Stupendous writing, talented authors, a well-paced flawless and unique plot line, twists and hooks, suspenseful and tension-filled drama, sensual passion-filled romance and some very hot sex scenes. And the entire dual POV series was stunningly brought to life by two well-loved narrators whose voices created the magic that mezmerized.. from the dusk of broken yesterdays, through the highs and lows of uncertain tomorrows.. and on to the new dawn of endless possibilities.. they captured, crafted and conjured every emotional scene.

Holy Smokes, this is HOT!

What does Tad Branson and Ava Erickson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Where to begin.... Tad and Ava have become two of my favorite narrators. They bring these characters to life in a way that surpasses my imagination.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were so many great moments. Laugh out loud moments, sentimental tear moments and sob like my heart has been broken moments. I have to applaud the scene where the characters share their real names.

Any additional comments?

Since discovering JA Huss in 2017, I have systematically listened to nearly her entire back list. It seems like each book is better than the last. Great characters, suspense, intrique, love, laughter and let's not forget STEAMY sexy times. This collaboration with Johnathan McClain was highly anticipated and well worth the wait. I'm on my second listen of what i'm sure will be several before the next installment is released.

You guys are the absolute best team of writers there ever was! The narration was awesome with Tad and Ava. And even though the books are scheduled three weeks apart, I don't know how I'm gonna wait that long without going out of my mind! Excellent, excellent story!!!!!

WOW... Just WOW

Ava Erickson in my opinion is hands down the only female voice for J.A Huss books, and Tad WOW man you have voice that says it all.
Another great series by one of my all time favorite authors along side with Johnathan McClain, I can’t wait to see how this series unfolds.
Amazing characters, brilliant writing.
EOBS: Surprise for all at the end

Amazing dialogue! Funny. Smart.

Cliffhanger warning.

5/5 stars! Fantastic writing. Brilliant plot. Charismatic characters. Legitimate story beyond the romance. Amazing dialogue! Funny. Smart. Heartbreaking.

Fantastic study of PTSD, loss and loneliness.

The feel of this book reminds me of L.A. Confidential for some reason.

The sex scenes are hot as hades. Wow.

The narration - perfection! Is there an oscar for narration? Can I nominate Tad Branson?

great book

I really liked this book. It had a story line that held my attention. There was some pretty decent sex scenes to. I love the twists and drama of "Meet Me In The Dark" and "The Company" series. This book did not contain that degree of triggering material, which is what I missed in this book. I'm still glad I got it though.


The narration is what made this book. I love these two voices. Tad and Ava's voices is what prompted me to choose this book. These two together never fail to provide an awesome listening experience.

Thank you all for the combined effort to write a great book and for bringing it to life threw narration.

Cliffhanger

Narrators were awesome, but the story ends in a dramatic cliffhanger. I usually love JA Hauss but I didn't think this book was worth the credit/cost.

Lower your expectations

I finished the book but I'm not sure I'll buy the second despite the first ending on a cliffhanger.
The performance of both narrators was great. I enjoyed the inner dialogue of the guy.
The story just didn't move me.

I preferred 1.2.3 from JA Huss by a long mile.
