Summary

She’s too smart, too pretty, and too good for a thug like me. Caro Archer loved me once, then left me in the wreckage. 

Now, she’s back with danger on her heels and my heart in her hands. Her safety should be my top priority. 

Only, Caro has other plans. 

She wants to give us a second chance. 

The part of me that aches for more wants to give in. But I’m the same man she turned her back on all those years ago - the same brute she left in the dust. 

What makes her think things will be different this time? Especially when it’s more than my heart on the line? 

Second chances don’t come easy for a man like me. This time, I might not survive. 

Kit can be listened to as a stand-alone and is book two in the Scarred Hearts series about brooding, vigilante-type heroes. Novels in this series include interconnected characters, but each story can be listened to on its own and has an HEA. Listening to them in order is not crucial but recommended.

Romantic suspense second chance for people who don’t like second chance (and those who do)

I have a confession: I saw this audiobook written by S.M. West and narrated by Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton, so I downloaded the audiobook without reading anything else about it. I was a bit worried when I (very quickly) realized it was second chance, but was pleasantly surprised that it avoided most of the relationship drama that I dislike about second chance. It's also listed as 'brother's best friend', which is technically true, but it's not typical of that trope either (in a good way). Kit is a stand alone novel, but the characters from the first book (Prophet) appear frequently in this one. There's not a lot of background information about the characters included in the story, but I think that's more a result of the action-based writing style and less about being the second in series.

I'm familiar with Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton, and their performances did not disappoint. I'm sure that I liked the story more because I listened to it. Both narrators kept me engaged throughout the story.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request, and the opinions here are my own.

Tough But Gentle

I like this story. I like when the characters keep denying they're feelings for each other. That's usually when I shake my head and yell at them like they can hear me. I really liked Caro and Kit, they seemed well written for each other. I like that characters from one book can be in the next book but I also like that each of these books can be a stand alone. I liked the voices of the narrators especially Teddy Hamilton. So far this series is really good, I have one book left in the series but I have no doubt that I will like it too.

Kit was honestly just the best!

When Caro seems to unknowingly find herself in the middle of a dangerous situation, both her and Kit must find out the details of what is going on and help keep her from danger. This is complicated further as they are exes whom had a complex and difficult breakup.

‘Kit’ is the second book in the Scarred Hearts series, but can be read as a standalone.

What I loved most about this book was how much chemistry Kit and Caro had. Both introduced in the first book, I was looking forward to seeing their story explored further and them getting their happy ending. Kit was so lovely to read about. He was strong, protective, but also, soo sweet. He was honestly just the best! Sweet, rugged & protective! All in the best ways. I also loved seeing the introspective work Caro did on the previous relationship and letting go of all the judgement she had for Kit in the past and finally exploring their relationship!

This second chance romantic suspense had me on the edge of my seat throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Both Vanessa Edwin & Teddy Hamilton did amazingly with the narration. They brought the characters to life and I enjoyed the experience!

Kit & Caro!

Kit by S.M. West is a second chance suspenseful romance that I totally loved!

Caro and Kit ex lovers - find themselves in the middle of a dangerous situation that proves rather complicated when they still have all the heat and chemistry from the past.

Caro loved Kit with all of her heart however, she knew the type of work he was in was something that she couldn't allow in her life. Cutting ties, as heartbreaking as it is, was the only way Caro could move on.

I adored that big strong Kit was able to be so vulnerable and in love with the one who got away. West, writes an intriguing suspense story and a heartwarming love story.

Second Chance Romantic Suspense

There really is something for everyone in this story. Kit and Caro find themselves in the middle of danger and a mystery. There was plenty of suspense in this second-chance romance. That got me hooked from the beginning and kept me interested throughout. Caro is being targeted for violence so Kit and Caro attempt to figure out why. It did take me a little bit to warm up to Caro because of her reasoning for breaking up with Kit years ago. However, I feel like she was redeemed and I absolutely loved these two together. Narration by Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton was really good. Vanessa's voice was perfect as Caro.

A Second Chance Brother's Best Friend Romance

Kit by S.M West is a second chance brother's best friend romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton. This is the second book in the Scarred Hearts series and can be read as a standalone.

I absolutely love Suzanne’s books! I can't help but binge them. I really enjoyed the relationship between Kit and Caro. I liked that we got both of their points of view throughout the book. It really brought the story to life.

Vanessa and Teddy did a great job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would recommend this book if you like second chance romances, brother's best friend romances, contemporary romances, or romantic suspense.

A believable and intriguing mystery plot

The author knows how to weave a believable and intriguing mystery plot. Though the hints are big enough to deduce who the bad guys are and what the connections between them are, it’s still smartly written, enough to keep you interested.

I liked the romance part too, between this badass dedicated doctor and the reformed bad boy who’ll do anything for the woman he loves. They have a past that we learn about, and that kept them away from each other for years. The danger Caroline finds herself in forces them to reconnect and to confront their feelings. They had several interesting scenes together, including the sexy ones. It was also great to see the impact their failed relationship had on them. All in all, I though the characters were well written.

That goes for the side characters too. Between the bad guys, the various friends and family, and the detective, that made a compelling gallery of characters. And they all had their role to play in the story. Except one that I felt was unnecessary–though not uninteresting.

The pace was good, keeping you on your toes, with some action thrown in.

Both narrators were extremely good, with emotions, actions and even sexy times. I was never bored.

Kit

The dual narration of Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton was just perfect for this great book.

I fell in love with this book from the very first sentence. You know it will be a fast paced and full of action book.

Kit and Caro have history and it didn't end well. A second chance of making things right but Kit’s priority is keeping Caro safe from the bad guys intent on harming her. You will find a story which is filled with danger, suspense, twists, action.

Loved

A SUSPENSEFUL TENSE THRILLING SECOND CHANCE

This fast-paced second-chance romance is exciting and drama-filled as Kit steps in to protect ex girlfriend Caro.. his first love.. and his only love. Years earlier Caro had broken both their hearts when their incompatible lifestyles forced her to make a heartbreaking decision because Caro’s goal was to become a Doctor and Kit’s life was dangerous and on the shady side of legal. Since then Kit has cleaned up his act and each have tried to move on after their split but they never really could. And now Fate has Kit charging in to protect Caro.. unaware of the big pile of steaming poop they’ve both stepped into thanks to Caro’s ex and now they're drawn into a race against time to find a missing man.. to find answers.. and to stay alive. But there’s someone out there pulling their strings, threatening their lives, giving them ultimatums and deadlines.. and promising deadly consequences. Kit and Caro work together to succeed and to stay alive.. and along the way they both realize what they broke was precious.. what was once lost could be found again.. forgiveness is the way forward.. and so, could their love possibly be rekindled?.. if they survive.

The dual POV storyline has suspense, romance, high-octane drama, thrills, sex and sizzles, danger, heart-to-hearts, revelations and mystery as Kit and Caro race to find answers and dodge death before their time runs out. And Teddy and Vanessa brought the tension to the drama.. they infused their characters thoughts with conflict, regrets, frustrations and feels.. and the excitement and climactic action builds thanks to their wonderful narration.

Worth a credit? Yes it’s a suspenseful second-chance as the cryptic puzzle pieces are slowly dropped revealing manipulation, murder and an unknown mastermind. Everything will eventually fit into place for Kit and Caro.. but these destined soulmates will have to figure out the past wrongs.. before it feels right.

Great second chance story!

This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites. “Kit” is an action packed, suspenseful, and steamy second chance romance that I could not stop listening to. Caro and Kit’s story was the perfect second chance story.

Caro is a doctor and has been working at a clinic that’s in a rougher part of Toronto but she values the help she brings to the community. Kit is her childhood sweetheart but circumstances tore them apart. But when Caro finds herself in the middle of a tense situation when she finds out her ex has been using her clinic as a front to funnel drugs out. Now the dealers are after her and Kit vows to protect her.

I absolutely loved Caro and Kit. Their backstory on how they met and how much they were in love was so sweet and it broke my heart under the circumstances that broke them apart. I loved how protective Kit was of Caro but it didn’t overshadow how much he cares and respects her. Caro is so genuine and wants to help all she can as a doctor. Her work in the clinic that was opened in the honor of her sister is so admirable and I loved that her and Nick opened it. The suspense and action was taken up a notch for this story and all the twists and turns were so good. Even if it was a tense and crazy way, I loved that these two found their way back to each other.

Teddy Hamilton and Vanessa Edwin were perfect as Kit and Caro. Caro had so many emotions and Vanessa did an amazing job bringing them to life. I could feel the passion in her voice. Teddy’s performance as Kit was so good and he did great playing the sweet and protective man.

Meant to Be

This is a wonderful second chance suspense heavy book! Kit and Caro are childhood sweethearts who have been estranged for a few years. Caro is thrown into the middle of a very dangerous situation. Kit swoops in to help. Real quick these two realize they are meant to be together. While navigating all the horrible situations they are thrown into these two reconnect and work really hard to find their long awaited HEA. This book kept me on the edge of my seat. So much action and emotional twists. 5 star plus read all the way. Adore this group of close knit friends and family.

Great Story

First you can almost never go wrong with Teddy Hamilton or Vanessa Edwin. So the narration was awesome. The story was also awesome. I love a good 2nd chance romance and the suspense thrown in with it made it even better. This is the second or third book I listened to written by this author and have not been disappointed yet. Great characters, story line, it also has some characters from Prophet (you don't need to listen to it before reading this one). Good use of my credit.

Awesome!

I really enjoyed this book! I’ve never read anything by SM West so I honestly had no idea what to expect. This book had a wide variety of tropes and emotions. Second chance romance, intrigue, mystery, thrills. It definitely made you run the gamut of feelings and I enjoyed every moment.

Kit and Caro were a really great duo. I liked how Caro was quick to admit that she did something wrong when breaking it off with Kit. Although, to be honest, I kind of thought she had a somewhat valid point for doing it even though she could have actually fought Kit's choices a little bit before just giving up. The fact that all the blame wasn't put on Kit was very refreshing since that seems to be a common theme in romance books.

I loved the mystery aspect of this book. It was fun trying to figure out who was in on the whole debacle and who wasn't. Some of it was a little obvious, but not knowing how a certain person was involved kept me on my toes. It was fast paced and I didn't find any of it boring or drawn out. The action starts very early on and doesn't really stop until the end.

The narration was wonderful! Teddy Hamilton did such an amazing job, as usual. I'm still not super wild about his female voice, but I also wasn't all that wild about Vanessa Edwin's male voice, so I just overlooked all of that. Vanessa Edwin did a great job, as well. I think I've listened to maybe one other book she's narrated and I remember enjoying it too.

I was in a major book slump and a little over the usual tropes I listen to so I figured I'd try it out. I am so glad I did because it was a fun ride! Overall, I definitely recommend this one! I'll be checking out other books by not only the narrators, but the author as well.

The Wisdom from Maturity

4.5 stars - This romantic suspense hit the spot! The mystery and danger starts right out of the gate and doesn't stop until the end. I anticipated many of the twists but the delivery was still good.

Kit and Caro find themselves in the middle of a situation compliments of her ex. Things get ugly. Bodily harm occurs and street drugs are at the heart of the matter.

My heart breaks for both of them as they have grown up since Caro ended their relationship years earlier and each realizes what they need now that may not have been understood then but maturity has given (mostly) Caro the wisdom to she where she incorrectly judged. Despite the numerous trips to the hospital, I love when they let their guards down and reunite, body and soul. 💜🔥🎉💜

I enjoyed an author's copy of the audio book and I liked Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton as the narrators. I kept finding reasons to leave my ear buds in to listen to more of the story. A really good book!

5 Amazing Stars…All the way around!

Love, love, Loved this one! Its as good or better than the first. Its a second chance romance with a lot of action and suspense. The characters are witty and personable. I enjoyed them all—even the not so good ones. The author did a good job being secretive and not letting me figure out who was entirely bad. In fact I had one character pegged as a suspect…and they were completely legit.

Boy Oh Boy do I Love Kit! He is wonderful in all that he has overcame in his life. He is smart, quick on his feet and so sweet. I loved how devoted (mostly) he was to Caro. Once she was back in his life again…it was all her..all the time.

Caro really did well for herself as a doctor. Owning her own facility and also a second place in memory of her sister. She gets into a heap of trouble via a co-worker and her brother send Kit to help her out. All those times they spent staring at the pictures on his wall…standing near each other. Both wanting the same thing but neither acting on it..GAH! I love those scenes!

Overall I enjoyed this story as much as I did the first in the series. It is full of action and suspense that kept me riveted to my earbuds. I did listen to this on audio. Vanessa Edwin and Teddy Hamilton rocked this!

Hopefully Logan’s story will be next!
