A compelling listen

I bought book 2 straight away as I was intrigued about what was going to happen next.
I personally didn't like the child abuse sections and wonder if that had to be so explicit.
Good story - you'll want to get the next book. Lots of sex scenes.

A continuation of the saga.

Wow, what can I say, a good 2nd instalment ending on a cliff hanger. Roll on part 3.

Obsession

I enjoyed the unfolding story, and how the book incorporates each aspect separately from different angles. But the excessive monotonic sex scenes and vocabulary began to irritate me by the end of it.

Too much sex.

I would have liked more story and less of the sex scenes which were all quite similar. I ended up skipping them to get to the good stuff ie; the story which made an already short book even shorter. I love the characters and the storyline but I don’t like that it’s so stretched out. Great narrators though.

Constantly Repeating the Same Information

I listened to the first book which was slow to get going but good ending.
I downloaded this one, eager to carry on with the story, and twenty chapters in you still don't know anything more! Each chapter from Talon and Jade repeats the same information as the last one, never unavailing any more of the mystery. Its ANNOYING.
I could have listened to the last 3 chapters ONLY.

The Performance from the voice actors are good.

I'm now obsessed

Obsession was a great second book to the saga, this book was a little darker with more of Talon's history being revealed, some bits are upsetting to hear but well worth it

Great story

Was really liking the first book where the story starts, cliffhanger had to see what happens so bought this one, now am pretty ticked about having to purchase the next one to finish the story or maybe that one will be a another cliffhanger. Am very disappointed in authors who do this. I Like the characters and story line but feel like this is a rotten way to sell books.

Another Cliffhanger....kind of...or maybe not...LOL. This book left us at a part where we find out something important about a character but it wasn't like it was really in the middle of a scene so I'm not sure If I'd call that a cliffhanger. It was more just leaving us dying for book 3 so we can find out what is going to happen.

I love Jade and Talon, these two are off the charts hot together! I wish he would just tell her his secrets but considering the nature of them, I understand why he doesn't. This book was full of questions that I can't wait to get answers for! LOVE THIS SERIES SO FAR!

Narration is great too!!

rip off

at least the story on this 2nd book was better than the first however I find it a complete rip off to have to purchase 3 books in order to get an ending. it should have been been one book. this is like have other novels you've read, cut into thirds, with no ending at all to the first to, like the chapter ends so in order to get any ending to the story, you have to purchase all books. It's like paying for individual chapters of any book. The narater sounds like she's a valley girl from California vs. a girl from Colorado. I would not recommend this series.

Again.. Terrible

I don't understand why the author created a female character that is basically a doormat for Talon. Talon does absolutely nothing for Jade. Talon and Jade don't have a relationship, he screws her and leaves her every time. This is not a love story, this is more about what someone experiences after being traumatized. I'm over it, and probably won't waste another $41 on audiobook #3.

Once again...cliffhanger.

Though this story is interesting in many ways, it's difficult to understand why we need to purchase THREE books in order to have Talon's portion of the Steel Family story resolved. (Since I haven't yet finished the 3rd I'm not even sure it will be resolved in that one either.) I understand "the saga" and that the author wants to put out dozens of books to include all the characters in the family, but it's really not fair to the reader that we aren't told that each book will not have a satisfying ending. Every time the reader starts to hear a tiny detail of the story the book reverts back to a soft porn scene. We get it. Talon and Jade have good sex. Enough already. The performances by the narrators are very good. The story would be interesting if we could ever hear it in its entirety without having to buy 12 books.

eh

the first book was great and the story in this one was too but there were times it came off a little too fifty shades of grade and Jade turned into this weak pathetic girl as opposed to the strong woman she was in the first. Talon just came off as too controlling. not the biggest fan of this one

A Weak Woman + Redundant Sex = BORING!

A writer's best friend is an editor and it is clear that Ms. Hardt has no friends.

Do not waste your time. A grown woman would never settle for this amount of abuse! NO WOMAN EVER!

Whose idea was it to take a story that could have been told in one, maybe two books and spread it out over a lifetime? I held on through the second book because I thought maybe, just maybe there would be some movement... FORWARD in the plot. Goddess, was I wrong. Dead wrong! The sex scenes became so redundant that skipping through them was the only way of getting to what little story telling there was in this book. With that, how many times can a women get completely obliterated by a man and then simply "open up" to him? Isn't the magic/dream of the Romantic Trope supposed to be relatable? This reads slower than a Victorian first draft! The writing was great, there was just too much of it. Thank Goddess for Sebastian York, without him, I wouldn't have made through the first several chapters.

THIS IS SICK AND HEART WRENCHING

There is a WARNING at the beginning of the book due to the content.

Talon is obsessed with Jade but due to his inner torment he keeps pushing her away then going back to her. She never denies him. Talon decides to try therapy again and allows himself to be hypnotized. He starts remembering and investigating pieces of information about his tragedy. Meanwhile, Jade is investigating the family, for work, and finding answers to some of her questions.

The story is full of suspense, mystery, angst, tears, and OMG's and What the f**k. There's also romance and hot sex.

Fore me the cliffhanger wasn't as bad this time because you know there's something creepy going on and it gives us one more answer. I hear book 3 is due out in September.

Sebastain York and Neva Navarre gave a fantastic performance. Sebastain as Talon broke my heart and I hung on every word.

Absolutely worth the credit or $$.
