Summary

Maksim Lenkov is certain he’s not a good man. His father isn’t, and since Maks is his second in command, then certainly, he’s just as evil. The list of sins is long, and there’s no getting around that. What’s messing him up is that despite all that, in the midst of life and death, his only friend tells him he’s been a blessing, law enforcement is treating him like he prevented more bloodshed than he caused, and everyone is concerned with doing right by him. Why? And how is Maks supposed to figure out who he is when everything he thought he knew is suddenly turned upside down?

It only gets weirder once he begins his new life in witness protection. Because if he’s a guardian angel of women and children, dogs, and one eccentric heiress, can he really be a bad man? Added into the mix is a handsome, loyal deputy chief of police, who lives next door and thinks Maks hangs the moon. Is it possible that living in hell never actually made him into the devil? Perhaps it was only a wayward life, and now it’s time to chart a new course.

Mary Calmes at her best

Excellent book, excellent audiobook, superb performance. The narrator did a fantastic job and I was truly surprised when it ended, as it didn’t seem that much time had passed. The writing was incredible. Well worth a listen.

Simply marvellous

This is another lovely and enthralling book by Mary Calmes. The characters are engaging, and I'm totally in love with Maks and Gale. Nick J Russo, as always, brought everyone to life just perfectly, and the time passed by without me even noticing.

Disappointing

The first part of the book was really good, gritty and interesting. The second part was just too sweet everything was compacted and totally unrealistic even the narrator sounded bored. I do like this author but lately I've found her books to be a bit hit and miss.
