Publisher's Summary

Webster’s defines to heal as “to make healthy, whole or sound; restore to health, free from ailment.” But Webster’s also defines to heal as “to free from evil; cleanse; purify: to heal the soul.”

My soul is shattered.

I’m one hell of a mess because I need both and I don’t know how both can possibly happen. Sure, I know my body will heal. I understand the science of healing - it’s my profession. But the ache in my heart and fear in my head? I’m not sure I’ll ever get over that. Losing your unborn child at the hands of your abusive husband will do that to you. I’ve been trained to fear those who are supposed to love - conditioned to watch my every move and word so as not to suffer the consequences. For me, healing might never be a possibility. 

Or I didn’t think so until Tony Carpino fixated himself in my life. 

Tony is patient. Determined. He knows exactly what I need even before I do. He wants to give me everything, make my life beautiful when it’s always been ugly. But as determined and patient as he might be, I don’t know if I can ever be whole again. It doesn’t matter how long I’ve wanted him...and I’ve wanted Tony Carpino for a long time. 

This is a story of heartache and broken souls. A story of being exactly what the one you love needs when they need it, even if it goes against every being of your nature. 

Because love isn’t love unless it’s selfless.

Another Beautiful Story 💜💜💜

Brynne Asher has done it again!! This is such a wonderful book! I love how the characters are grownup and not just stumbling around making stupid mistakes and decisions. The story had a little bit of everything - drama, some action, sexy times ;) and tear-producing sweet moments. I can't wait for Paige's story to out!! I've fallen in love with her already! 💜💜💜

Female character is ridiculous and narrator grinds on my last nerve

Omg I hate that I spent my last credit on this book. The female narrator has the WORST voice ever and the female character is so whiny.. the only reason I continued listening was because I paid for it.

Tony keeps ALL his promises!!

I adore the Carpinos, but Tony might be my favourite of them all! Once he realizes he's in love with Leigh he pulls out all the stops to ensure she never has another nightmare, real or imagined, in her lifetime.

Leah has been through the ringer, and all by the man who was supposed to love her forever, and now she just wants it all to go away -- but Tony has other plans.

Tony is determined to make the other man pay, not just for the lack of love he gave, but also for every broken bone and finally for the most painful thing Preston could have taken from her.

Leigh is determined to keep pushing Tony Carpino away, there's no way she's good enough for him and she doesn't want to keep hurting the Carpino family, they've done more for her than she could ever have imagined. But Tony is insistent on smashing Leigh's walls, he's going to keep Leigh for the rest of his life, unless someone with an axe to grind can get to her first.

One of my favourite books by Brynne Asher, Lauren Sweet and Aiden Snow slayed it as the narrators for Leigh and Tony Carpino! I love how much love the Carpino family showers upon Leigh, and that Tony refuses to give in, even as she tries to push him away on a daily basis.

5 ⭐s for the sexy voices provided by Lauren Sweet and Aiden Snow, and the words Brynne uses to show that Domestic Violence victims are worth all the love in the world. I can't wait for Paige Carpino's story!!

Best book boyfriend ever.

Tony and Leigh's story is one of my favorites, first in print and now in audio! The narrators did an incredible job of bringing these characters to life and doing Asher's writing justice. I know this is one audiobook I will listen to on repeat many times over.

Beautiful!!

2nd read review: I did a re-read by audiobook. The narrators were wonderful. They easily pulled me into the story and I highly recommend the audiobook version. I enjoyed revisiting the Carpiono's!

1st read review: I'm loving this series. It's pretty perfect for my Dominant Alpha preferences. Brynne Asher did a beautiful job of writing a dominant alpha in Tony that was still sensitive, sweet and protective over Leigh who is a victim of domestic violence.

Despite Leigh's past with her ex-husband, this is a pretty low angst book. The drama wasn't too much, just enough to bring some excitement to the story. Also, we got more of my favorite man, Jude and Gabby.

The beginning of this book overlapped just a little with the ending of Overflow. You just get the overlap in Leigh and Tony's pov instead of Jude and Gabby's. This allows you to read this book as a standalone if you wish. I highly recommend reading both.

Loved it

Sweet read and listen. Narration pulls you into the story with seductive voices and before you know it, hours have gone by. Going to need to listen to more books in this series if the same narrators are used. Loved the story. HEA.

Amazingly beautiful book

I love Leigh and Tony's journey. it's so heartfelt and emotional. I didn't think I could could love anymore than I already do. I was wrong. Hearing it narrated from these amazing narrators blew it out of the water. They captured the characters' personalities perfectly. I loved sitting and listening while following along in the book. Absolutely stunning. Every single word. I can't wait for the audio of Athica Lane! Five of the easiest stars I've ever given!

TONY MAKES YOU SWOON

The story of Leigh and Tony is so heartwarming. From the beginning your heart is with Leigh and all the turmoil she endured. And you immediately fall in love with Tony because he is there from the beginning being so patient and kind to her. But as patient as he is with Leigh he is ready for more from the beginning. I loved the book but this audio book was awesome - love hearing the characters come to life. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for sweet and some hot love!

Emotionally charged but oh so sweet!!!

Tony and Leigh deal with some serious subject matter at the beginning of this book. Heartbreaking and tragic. It makes the rest of the book so incredibly beautiful. This book is true to its title.....Leigh and Tony give each other a Beautiful Life!! 💜
