Publisher's Summary

The witness-protection program has given me the fresh start of which I've always dreamed. A new home. A new name. A new life. For the first time in 10 years, it feels like I can breathe again.  

But the cost of freedom is more than I bargained for. I put my foster father behind bars. It doesn't matter that he deserved it. What matters is that he's powerful, manipulative, and now, he wants me dead.  

I can feel someone watching me. I know my time is running out. The only other person who cares if I live or die is a masked stranger. So I'm putting my life in the vigilante's hands - and maybe a piece of my heart along with it. Even though I'm worried that he's just as dangerous as the man I sent to prison.

Finding Your True Self

I enjoyed this book. It was my first audible book. I felt so much for Summer/Sadie. She had such a hard life starting at age 8! She is strong but she doesn’t know it! I admired her courage in what she was being forced to do - to try to have a new life!

Cliffhanger

I really hate cliffhangers. It took me until the last of the book to get into it, then it ended and left me hanging. I feel like I was cheated and they want you to get sucked in and spend money for more. My last Ivy buy. Elizabeth Hart was a great narrator.

Read it!!!!

I started listening to this audiobook after finishing the Hunter series and it’s sequel. The third book of the sequel isn’t on audiobook yet which is crazy because it ended in a cliffhanger.

So, I decided to read the vigilante series. This book has nothing to do with the Hunter series with the exception of it being in the same city and James Hunter gets a shout out.

There are a few twists in the book and another love triangle. The girl protagonist is likable and so is her best friend. You also end up liking the three men that’s in her life which makes it hard to root for just one of them. There’s a lot of unanswered questions which I’m hoping will be answered in the next books.

Elizabeth Hart did a pretty good job with her performance, but I didn’t really care for the voices she used for the men. They all sounded the same and it was really gravelly. It was hard to picture these “hot, strong” men with the voices that she uses for them. It almost drove me crazy to the point where I didn’t want to listen anymore, but Ivy’s books are so good that I will bear through it. 😊

Only the story was good

I couldn’t get over the narrator’s pronunciation of “vigilante” and the way her voice sounded like she sucked helium for the men’s parts. It was hard to listen to but the story itself was good. I’d rather had read the book.

did not like the narrators men voices.

It was hard to imagine characters with that voice. The female parts were okay.

Poor

I kept at it in the hope it would improve sadly that didn’t happen. Narration by Elizabeth Hart was good but even she sounded bored at times.

I’m sorry this could have been amazing but it’s just so limp. Needless to say I shall not be buying the other two.
