Review by Twinsie Angie
I purchased this audio book.
I love to comment on the audio for the book. Voices can make or break a story. I must stay I loved listening to Tess Irondale. I think she did a wonderful job changing up all the characters and making each voice different especially during scenes with multiple conversations.
This is the story of 2 people who got totally screwed over by someone else but managed to find a way to each other. Blue has loved Shadow as long as she can remember but she makes the mistake and tells her sister Calla about her crush. Calla…lets just say is a …hrmm…total snatch and needs a good throat punch….decides to ruin her sisters happiness especially when she knows Shadow is also feeling Blue. Needless to say, Calla ruins the two and they spend almost 18 years dealing with the fallout.
Shadow is not a guy to shirk his responsibilities and even puts his heart away to take care of his son with Calla. He never tells what happened but when he realizes his chance with Blue is about to slip away AGAIN he takes it and lets her know she is his.
Calla is sent to prison and Blue is left to take care of her and Shadows son while Shadow is in jail. When Shadow is released he lets her know their time in NOW. He will not take no for an answer. I loved the way the two figured things out. He let he be her but also let her know she is his.
There are two big plot twists and I gotta admit they were both awesome to follow along. I absolutely loved Blue and Shadow but I loved how Bolt was just as happy to finally be able to call Blue his mom.
