Summary

Just released from the mental hospital for shooting her ex-husband, Kassie is in no mood to date men. Now a newly single mother, she’s focused on raising her son. She also has to get her career as an author back on track and rediscover her passion for romance writing. She has things to do. But Lorenzo comes into her life, a gorgeous firefighter who isn’t accustomed to hearing the word no. He’s more than a heated distraction. He’s an erotic inferno of lust and everything sizzling. So, the chase begins. 

Neither is ready. There’s too much at stake for them both. They’ve both been broken and betrayed, both misused and abused. Yet sensual flames surround them. Desire burns and twists with wet kisses on a moonlit beach. And they’re both caught up in the passionate chaos, both intoxicated with the other. Hot sex ignites into something more. And both are left wondering who will be standing when the smoke clears....

Worst Book Ever!

This is the worst book ever written. The only reason I listened to the whole book is because I paid for it. The narrators were awful and I'm so disappointed. Don't waste credits or money on this book or audio.

Took a minute to listen to because of the low rating. But listened to it today and loved this book. I love all of her books.

Wasn't for me...

Kenya is one my favorite authors, but this book wasn't for me. I don't know if it was because of the narrator or the storyline. The female moderator was horrible and the male narrator was okay. I skipped quite a bit of the book because of the female narrator. There were some parts that were really funny. Look forward to the next audio release by Kenya.

Not a waste!

Narrators were not great, book was good. Kassim and Lorenzo are a great couple. The two other spouse's could have more about their backgroundsm

I loved it!

I enjoyed the story of Cassie and Lorenzo. Cassie as the main character and an author herself deepened the story with stories within a story. Cassie’s fears were played out within her stories. In her rise you told the story of other women less fortunate than her. Lorenzo was definitely a hero for everyone but he became stronger when he connected to Cassie. This story had life lessons, funny moments and challenges. The narrators were perfect! Cassie and Lorenzo felt real through their delivery. This was worth the purchase.

meh

The storyline was okay. The book within the book was really odd and I fast forward through those parts. The male narrator was better than the female narrator. It was like she was overacting...and her male voice was not good.

Excellent book

This book covered some thought-provoking topics from start to finish. couldn’t stop listening to it until I had to. It ran through the spectrum of human emotions; bitterness, hate, distrust, lies, love and romance with a sprinkling of humor. Narrators did a good job bringing out these emotions in characters. This book was deep!

If you have nothing else to read.

Not a bad filler read but probably won't read again. Hot sex scenes. Male narrator was very nice to listen to. The female narrator's voice as a man was a bit annoying for me though.
