Publisher's Summary

Autumn in New York promises a turn in the seasons as we kick off the next stage of our lives. Colorful leaves falling, dropping temperatures, and the first days of classes loom even as the lingering summer heat and humidity make the city stifling. 

Summer was a time to get away, to just be us, and what a magical time it was, but we can only run away from our lives for so long. We have family, careers, friends - new and old - as well as commitments waiting for us. With a new place to call our own in a new city I’m already half in love with, we’re not afraid of the challenges ahead. 

Of course, not everyone is rooting for us, not everyone wants us to succeed, and some choices may come back to haunt us. But don’t come for those I love and expect me to do nothing. They might want to surround me in a layer of protection, but they’re mine, and I’m more than willing to fight to keep them. 

Feel free to test me, I’ve never failed one yet. 

Please note: This is a reverse harem, and the author suggests you always listen to the foreword in her books. Contains some bullying elements, mature situations, and is recommended for 17+. This is the ninth in a series, and the story will continue through future books.

What an ending

Wow just wow I knew Maddie was crazy but I never knew she would have gone that far. Frankie is really going to need her men now what this young women has gone through and she is still standing is amazing. Can not wait to read the next book. As always Marne Young and Grayson Owens knocked it out of the park.

Always enjoyable

Heather Long hasn't written a single book I haven't loved, and D&D is no exception. The story of Frankie and her boys had held my interest captive from the start. In audio form the unbeatable narration by Grayson Owens, with his awe inspiring ability to differentiate each of the male characters voices, and Marnye Young's emotion evoking portrayal of Frankie, make every chapter a masterpiece. This entire series is wonderful, and worth the time to both read and listen to.
