I received a free review copy of this book. This is the first story I read from N.D. Jones and my first audiobook ever which was the reason to pick it up. I don’t usually choose this kind of stories and I have to say that it was a good decision. The book tells us the story of Zora and Alastar. Zora was the witness of a shooting where one of her most beloved people died. Alastar had been rejected by her own mother and that scarred him for life. The story starts with a shocking scene that grabs the reader’s interest from page one. The author is good at describing action scenes. There are several surprises I didn’t see coming.
This is a good short story. It's plenty sexy and hot. But it's also sweet and loving, just like the characters of Alastar and Zora. It was a good, albeit short, read.
