Audio Rating: 1.00 (Not part of the overall rating)
First Thought when Finished: I think I will like the rest of The Burg series if they are like For You–this was really compelling romantic suspense! That being said be prepared to want to throw something at Colton because he can be infuriating at times. Feb also managed to make me grrrrrr but I liked them together.

Just skip the audiobook y’all! It was really bad both in voice and pacing. I have a pretty high tolerance for character voices but this one just missed the mark.

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
