Summary

Brooklyn

I was locked in a cage for sixteen years. But I lived in it willingly. And I didn’t come back to this city for a boy who forgot about me when I was kidnapped. Matthew Caldwell broke his promises to me. And I broke every single promise I made him. But he helped heal my heart once before. And I think maybe he’s the only one who can help me now.

Matt

It’s easiest to remember Brooklyn in the fall. The autumn leaves, the crisp smell of the air—it’s all her. I wasted half my life loving someone who’s never coming back. And I still want all the things I once did—kids, a wife, a home. But how can I move forward if I still feel her presence at every turn? It’s almost like she’s still here with me…

NEED TO LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!!

I’ve been waiting for this book!! I even preordered this book….. and I still forgot that it dropped 11/10/22🤦🏻‍♀️
But have no fear…… 😁
Today (11/11/22), I listened to the whole book!!
(If you listen to this book at work, like I did, just make sure you’re by yourself. So you don’t look like a crazy person 😉😁)

Sooo let’s just say that….. I NEED EH7 as sooon as possible!!


I giggled 🤭, I was in shock 🫣😱, I laughed out loud that made my eyes leak, and I cried 🥺😢 for all the grief and agonizing pain that this book brought to my ears!!

Miss. Ivy, as always you leave us in a cliffhanger where our insides turn and we’re either, like What The Flip or we’re in shock!! You are absolutely marvelous at that!! 😊😁

Miss. Laurie West, I am so glad that you have stayed with the EH series, because I can not hear any other female narrator to be Brooklyn or Kennedy! You portray these characters so well and you do such an amazing job!!
I can feel the confusion, the battle, the sadness and the small burst of love and happiness that Brooklyn and Kennedy are going through!!
And let’s not forget Poppy……. That psycho “B”
Like I said you are the perfect person for EH🥰

Mr. Connor Crais, really what can I say….. I might be bias, but I don’t care!! 😁 You are brilliant! The depth of anguish and dejection that comes across your dialogue.. makes the reader feel all the feels! 🥺🥹 You are the ONLY Male Narrator that fits in these series, in Miss. Ivy’s books!!
Matthew Caldwell = Mr. Connor Crais’s Voice!!
I found myself busting up laughing in several chapters where Matthew, Tanner, Nigel, Mason, Rob, James, and Felix all have monologue with each other in one way or another and it was like I was there in those scenes!! Your delivery is perfect!! Sooo much fun!!
Like always, I am not disappointed I am never disappointed!! 😊

😁🥰
Adrien

If you’ve read my review above;
If you want a new series of books to read, look up Ivy Smoak’s books!!🥰
I believe most of her books that are about the “Untouchables”, are in audio!! The Hunted Series, EH Series, The Light To My Darkness Series, Men of Manhattan Series. Look them up! You will be hooked and will enjoy every last one of them!!
😁🥰🤓

Best book in the series!!

This is the best book yet! Masterfully written, with great build up. A rainbow of emotions!! I'm a wreck in all the good and bad ways!!! I cried a few times today, laughed, felt nostalgic thinking back to the prior EH books, wanted to throw my phone and yell at some of the characters!! Im exhausted!! Great job Ivy, amazingly written!! So looking forward to April, then book 8! Also, fantastic narration!!

great book

i advise to not listen to this book while driving because it had me laughing and crying at the same time and that makes it very difficult to drive safely.

this book was the perfect Band-Aid after Matchmaker and run away. I got the roller coaster of emotions but it ended with a lot of Hope. of course there is a cliffhanger at the end but it's a hopeful one.

Narrators Make This Amazing Book Complete!

OMG! This book! It had me sobbing in one chapter, and then the next I was giggling, and then I was sobbing again. I was never a fan of Nigel and Tanner. In fact, I thought they were a waste of the storyline, but I understand now how much they fit into the story. Nigel‘s fascination with Matt was sometimes very cringe worthy, but in this book you find out how much he cares for him. Tanner is such a giving person that I found to be very compassionate and helpful to his friends. He did everything he could to make things right.

I am a Miller fan. I loved him from the very beginning when he became Brooklyn’s bodyguard. I loved his loyalty and his calmness around Brooklyn, but at the same time he protected her with his life. I hate love triangles, but in this case both guys were amazing that it was hard to choose who was best for Brooklyn. I know there is a lot of arguments over Matt and Miller. It was the same as James and Tyler, but it was easier for me to choose Tyler because James was always so grumpy and Tyler was a happy go lucky kind of guy.

This whole time Ivy has been telling us that this is Matt’s story. I was afraid I was going to get to the end of the book and there would be a cliffhanger where Matt and Brooklyn didn’t meet yet. The times she met all the other friends were very emotional, but the most emotional one was when she finally saw Matt. I knew that Brooklyn would eventually end up with Matt, but I wasn’t sure how Ivy could work it out and still give Miller Justice. There is one chapter where she does that, and boy was I sobbing.

This book is not a standalone. I recommend reading from the very beginning with book one, and I promise it’s worth it. This is my favorite series that Ivy has written and that is saying a lot because I loved the “Made of Steel” series.

The narration was fantastic! Connor and Laurie were able to bring our favorite characters to life.

Duuuuuude

I really love this series. This book was a culmination of the last couple of books. it's like this is the result of Matchmaker and Runaway finally meeting in a dark auditorium...Its messy. Its heartbreaking. Even though you think you know whats coming you still laugh out loud, tear up, and try to ease your racing heart right along with your EH/ Men of Manhattan favorites. I AM curious how Tanner and Nigel will finally land in all this...
The narrators both embody these characters really giving you the emotions each is feeling at a particular moment - all the feels good. bad and sexy.
Looking forward to the finish in April
