4 “Where to Run?” Stars for the story and 5 Stars for the narration!
If you started Brighton’s and Ryland’s journey in Echo, then Stutter is a must to learn their conclusion. Please note though that you must first listen to Echo. If you haven’t yet started this series, please see my review for Echo for the background of this story (as spoilers appear below).
Pregnant and armed with the revenge filled truth of Ryland’s past connection to her brother and family, Brighton doesn’t know where to turn. The one thing she does know is that she needs to get away from Ryland.
After nearly losing her, Ryland allows Brighton some room, but is even more convinced than ever that he really loves her. Therefore he attempts to woo her back pulling out all the stops. However, when the truth comes out about her pregnancy, will he be able to resist his dominant nature and take back control by forcing her to stay with him? Can there possibly be a HEA under the circumstances?
Tracy Marks as always renders a fantastic narration! Having come to enjoy and love Ms. Marks’ narrations in A Zavarelli’s prior series, Boston Underworld, I knew I was in for a treat. Ms. Marks has a way to bring strong dominant heroes to life in a genuine and believable way while at the same time lending credibility to the emotional circumstances that their heroines’ experience.
In Stutter, in particular, I loved that Ms. Marks maintained consistency between the voices that she used in book 1, allowing me to easily fall back into the story even though I listened to a number of books in between.
All in all, the Bleeding Hearts Series is a great series for those that enjoy revenge and emotion filled, darker themed romances.
