The audio is part of a box set that includes all three Clarke Brothers books. ebook is available via Kindle Unlimited at the time of this review.
Samara Holloway is back in Blackwood, after years away chasing showgirl dreams in Vegas. She’s on a new path now – different city, different career… but there’s nothing different about Addison Clarke.
Or so she’d love to think.
Enough time has passed that Addison is certain he’s ready to be exactly the man Samara needs.
If only she shared his certainty.
Point of view:
1st person. Alternating between Samara & Addison’s perspectives.
I’m mixed on this. I liked the second chance-vibes set up, the characters, and quick-and-dirty sex. However, I’m not a fan of when an MC moves from persistent to stalker and Addison crossed that line to me. Conversely, he was “encouraged” in crossing the line because Samara was saying “not interested” while jumping him. Her “I don’t want you but I will continue to fuck you even knowing you want more” didn’t sit well either. The banter was fun at times, but repetitive.
I know it’s a novella, but the ending was abrupt and barely qualified as an HFN. I’m interested to see, if as a trilogy, it feels more complete.
Again, I’m mixed. I enjoyed listening overall, but there were some things that detracted. Like characters being given accents that didn’t match the text, or one narrator giving a character an accent and the other not.
