Summary

He lives in the shadows to protect her. But to save her, he'll have to rise from the grave.

Lily

The day Shane boarded the plane for basic training, I was happy for him. He escaped a life we both despised. Then he was killed in action before I had the chance to tell him I loved him. Now I write letters he'll never read. Talk to a cold gravestone, heard only by the wind...and maybe that guy in a baseball cap I only glimpse before he disappears.

Shane

I didn't need my father's money to become one of the deadliest men on earth: an assassin on an elite special forces team. I had no idea the cost of achieving my dream would be...everything. Now all I can do is watch from the shadows while Lily, untouched by the filth that clings to my soul, cries over my grave. Leaving her was hardest thing I ever had to do. But when her life is threatened, keeping my distance isn't an option.

Because I'm the only man on earth who can save her.

Contains mature themes.

Short, sweet and a freebie

This skips quickly through the background of the characters involved but provides a good basis for the story. It introduces us to the main characters for the next couple of books in this series, all whilst giving us a quick read/listen to romance. I enjoyed listening whilst I was working and it was a freebie from the Plus catalog.

The beginning of the rabbit hole

This series starts strong, finishes strong and delivers everything you need in the middle…before introducing a whole new series afterwards (and still going with spin offs!)

The first in the series is a pacy read with intriguing characters this story is narrated brilliantly with the incomparable Troy Duran as Lennox (*shivers*) and CJ Bloom as Lily.

The pain of Lennox’s death is portrayed really well and you really feel her loss in the narration, as well as her anger and frustration as Lennox’s true betrayal comes to the surface.
The guilt Lennox has for his choices, especially when Lily is brought into danger despite his efforts, is palpable and both their actions, whilst wrong for the right reasons, are heartbreaking.

Well read at a good pace, this audio is relatively short but doesn’t feel it, having sufficient depth and content to deliver a well rounded, action packed story.

5 stars for the narration 3 stars for the story.

A good included find 👍

This listen was on my included list, so gave it a try. Heard nothing by this author before, and am not disappointed.
A fast paced storyline, great characters and excellent narration.
Definitely recommend 👍

Lilly & Shane

This book had me in almost tears from the beginning. So much heartbreak, so much love and life wasted for 12 years. Gosh Troy Duran and CJ Bloom gave their all to this story and boy did I feel it!!!
