Summary

He has a heart of ice . . . but for her, he'd burn the world.

Alex Volkov is a devil blessed with the face of an angel and cursed with a past he can't escape. Driven by a tragedy that has haunted him for most of his life, his ruthless pursuits for success and vengeance leave little room for matters of the heart.

But when he's forced to look after his best friend's sister, he starts to feel something in his chest: A crack. A melt. A fire that could end his world as he knew it.

Ava Chen is a free spirit trapped by nightmares of a childhood she can't remember. But despite her broken past, she's never stopped seeing the beauty in the world . . . including the heart beneath the icy exterior of a man she shouldn't want.

Her brother's best friend. Her neighbor. Her savior and her downfall.

Theirs is a love that was never supposed to happen—but when it does, it unleashes secrets that could destroy them both . . . and everything they hold dear.

Contains mature themes.

Good idea, horrible execution

The ground work was set, bad boy with family issues, girl with family issues. Both different backgrounds but sadly the story is too shallow... Poor character development with every possible generic profile thrown at the filler characters. But hey, the audio guys sound amazing so bonus points to them 🤣

Disappointed

I dived into this blind! At first I was intrigued. I liked the different nationalities, i.e. Ukrainian and Chinese American which made a nice change.

Alex is the best friend of Ava's brother, Joshua. He is a delicious, grumpy, rich cool anti-hero who can basically do everything and is out for revenge.

Ava is a little innocent playing at photography and her brother asks Alex to watch over her whilst he goes on a working assignment and that's when the trouble starts!

Ava has great friends, one a 'real' princess, the other a high profile blogger and her best friend Jules who is just naughty and their banter is very cute. I loved Operation Emotion and laughed out loud at the picnic scenario.

Then all hell breaks loose and I think the author tried too hard to get all the tropes in one book. There were so many twists and turns that you are left spinning.

Then the book goes into boring downtime before it picks up again with more drama and major grovelling which I felt was unnecessary.

I always think endings are the hardest and this one just didn’t work for me. Hopefully her next book will get better and she'll find her rhythm.

Aidan Snow was delicious as Alex but Cindy Kay jarred.

So disappointing 😔

Could not finish this. The female character was very childish. And with a best friend like Jules, who needs enemies, particularly as Jules is planning to be a lawyer. Alex. . .hmmmm. . .just a very unconvincing story for me. A shame as Aiden Snow is a great narrator. But even his voice could not push me to continue past chapter 4. I want my money back 😶

Gah! This was so good!!!

Talk about an engrossing story. I started this book this morning and completely devoured it, foregoing any and all responsibility. I had things to do today! 🤣

I don't usually read contemporary romance books. It's not my preferred genre. BUT... This book has been all over TikTok and bookstagram and I thought I should see what all the fuss was about. Man, it did not disappoint.

I don't even know what to say besides you need to read this book. I mean, the scene with the phonecall 🥵... the build up was delicious 🔥

✅ Broody love interest
✅ Brothers best friend
✅ Grumpy x sunshine
✅ Character development on both ends
✅ Some of the best friends I've read
✅ Drama!!
✅ Touch her and die 💀
✅ Spiceeeeeee

Oh, man... It was so good. I'm definitely reading the next few books!

Story ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Spice 🌶️🌶️🌶️🌶️
Audio 🎧🎧🎧🎧🎧 (Can Aiden Snow be bad ever? God damn that man's voice acting skills 🙏)

Omg that female narrator…

The female narrator ruins it. I can’t help but laugh at her when she voices the male part 😂 she whispers as if she’s reading this while her family is outside the room and she doesn’t want them to hear.

Love the story but….

Listen I already knew I would love this book cause I’ve read it. So when the audible came out of course I had to get it. So I love the story but I’m not a fan of the female narrator. Idk what it was about her voice but it wasn’t what I imagined Ava to sound like.

Decent story, decent narration

Overall I enjoyed this book. The story and backstories were well written and flowed seamlessly. The narration was acceptable. I’ve always enjoyed Aiden Snow and this one was no different. But why was Cindy Kay whispering the whole time?? I kept having to adjust my volume from one narrator to the other. Spice was good and while the plot was predictable, the characters were intriguing. Now on my way to start the second in this series!!

Honestly

The story was good but the female narrator was sort of cringe. Which is a bummer cause nothing ruins an audio book more than bad narration.

Credit worthy . Spice and romance - slow burn

This is a nice snack of a book. Broody bad dude, smart and sunny chick. Nice slow burn and spice. I’ll probably read the others in the series when I need something as a pallet cleanser.
And as usual, if Aiden Snow read the back of a cereal box I’d swoon but both narrators were great !

Great storyline!

Male narrator was great but I wasn’t a fan of the female narrator (personal preference). Great storyline!
