From a slow start to a tearful ending, I enjoyed this story. Ava was a survivor, though she felt such guilt for doing what she had to. Her internal strength hid well the fear within as she faced The Beast of Aros and later her tormentor. Tor was a gruff teddy bear that I fell in love with quickly. The passion between them heated up the pages but did not take away from the story. Tim Campbell's narration of the story made the characters feel more real, and I loved listening to his different characterizations. I recommend the story for reading and the audiobook for the story to come to life.
I received a free copy of this audiobook as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.
