    Magnificent Story!

    Wow! Fantastic story, so well written! This story is a gem and Cristiane Serruya has a beautiful imagination and an exceptional writing. Tavish and Laetitia's story is breathtaking and I feel privileged to have listened to their story. Both have a horrible past and both are lost souls. Their chemistry is undeniable and the love scenes are beautifully written. This story has it all: romantic, sexy, hot, twisted, mysterious and suspenseful. The ending is beautiful. You can listen to this story as a standalone, but I highly recommend you listen to Shades of Love Novella before. The narration was wonderful. This was my first listen to Andy Cresswell and Penny Scott-Andrews. They done an amazing job with the narration and they bring to life this story in a wonderful way. I enjoyed my listening and I totally recommend this audiobook. I can't wait to listen to the next book in the Series. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

    Still beautiful, two years on

    *Kindly received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.* I last read this book near exactly two years ago, and it took me exactly the same amount of days to read as it did this updated version! But that is probably as far as coincidences go with this book, as for as much as time has passed and the book has been updated somewhat, it appears that my opinion of this book has altered slightly in the rereading, too. Of course, I still enjoyed it, immensely! And I was wowed just as much as I was previously. But there are little things that I noticed more this time than I did the last. And this time, I had read the prequel directly before, so I had a direct link into the continued story. Although, I will still say that it is best to read this book first, before the prequel, so you have a better understanding as you go through. Here we find two damaged souls, both suffering from PTSD in different forms due to their different harrowing experiences. Yet it is that scarring that enables each to see a kindred spirit in the other. And, as the story goes on, and it becomes more obvious how the past of each has affected their present, so they adapt even more and start to heal together. This is a very intelligent story. It goes in-depth into how much extremely harrowing experiences can change you and leave immense scarring, both physical and psychological. How people adapt and change to that over time. How triggers, even minor ones, can cause a person with such mental scarring to temporarily relive moments of their past and act out upon them. Although, considering all this, if one were to be highly critical, I do believe that Laetitia’s willingness to experiment is out of character with someone who has been through her trauma. Yet, she has a strong character, and, depending on the circumstances moving forward, some do recover better than others. She has learnt to live for herself, taught herself how to be a person in a modern world. She doesn’t fit in, but still is able to find her place nonetheless. She doesn’t have Tavish’s access to wealth and high-level medical personnel that that wealth open doors to, but she has used her art as a way of self-healing, which isn’t at all unusual. This book gives you intelligent discussions on subjects most people don’t think about, from art, to war, to abuse. At every turn, there is much thought that goes into the background detailing. Names of artists I’ve never even heard of, names of alcoholic drinks that I’ve never even drunk (apart from the whisky! ;) ). It is a book that is painted in detail. My only disappointment was that we didn’t get to see enough of Laetitia’s best friend, Elizabeth (only once, I believe), or that Laetitia didn’t get to speak with Johansen. I can understand why Johansen did what he did, but they could have reconciled in some way, especially as he was interested in her art. Elizabeth, herself, could also make for an interesting spin-off, but we didn’t really get to know enough about her. All in all, it was definitely an interesting reread, and still remains a brilliant story! Despite any faults, it is still ranked amongst one of the best.
