It's well written, excellently narrated, and delightfully long. The story is dramatic and emotional. The erotic scenes are hawwt, even when there is some despair due to traumatic events preceding them. Really hawwt! But there's so much heart, so much sweetness, too. The narrators impersonate the two characters perfectly. Never over the top.
Trigger warning by me... there are hints and descriptions of violence in the story. But do not fear, just listen til the end :)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Nick J Russo outdid himself. I listened to this book twice in a row, the narration was that good. Well written, too.

Flawless

Cool story with a hint of hallmark fairy tale, but the storytelling is flawless and captivating, as is the narration (the two narrators fit well together) with a nice slow burn. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

This book certainly isn't for everyone. I think a trigger warning might possibly be a good idea. There's some hardcore stuff, and I'm not talking kink or anything (though there's some sexual scenes that many people will find disturbing, too), I mean the things that the people in this story are experiencing, both inside and out.
I didn't know what I was getting into but I absolutely loved it. It's incredibly intense, sometimes overwhelming to the point of almost being painful. But it's also very emotional, the descriptions of one unfathomingly disturbed character's inner turmoils almost too accurate to bear, in the light of which the other character's near sainthood might seem unrealistic at times. But it makes for great love and hot sex, so screw unrealistic. The book is bold, fearless, not for the faint of heart and certainly not for the narrow-minded. But there is still that hint of fairy tale and romance underneath it all, one could argue might ruin the otherwise unyielding nature of it all, but I was glad for it.
As for the narration, I've always been a fan of John Solo, but he outdid himself with this one. Trust. He did an excellent, flawless job.
A tiny minus, but not enough to take away a star: the story gets a little too repetitive/drawn out towards the very end.

Good sequel

Not quite as intense as book 1, but I guess that's mostly because neither of the two MCs here, Phil and River, are as disturbed/damaged as Warren and Taylor from the first book. They have their own demons to fight, of course, but their struggles are a bit more tame, a lot less tragic. Other then that, Marie Sexton was just as bold and fearless, just as emotional and spot on in bisecting her characters' internal struggles, as before. Highly recommended for open-minded readers who don't mind the tiny spritz of fairy tale that's needed to provide a HEA after all.
As always, John Solo did one hell of a job.

Would have been a solid 5 star if...

...it weren't for the two different narrators. While Bane did a good job, Silversmith talked so incredibly fast, swallowing and leaving out syllables in the process that I had a hard time following or even understanding his narration. It actually shocked me, to be honest, after Bane started with his smooth voice and then... wham!
I tried to find a middle ground by adjusting the speed, but that again made Bane sound like Dory from Finding Nemo speaking "Whale". So yeah... just a warning.
The story itself was very enjoyable like all stories from the Bluewater Bay series. I'd rather recommend reading it though. Unless you like very, very fast talkers, then of course go for it.

Lovely and hot
