When Roxanne (Roxie) Logan met Billy Flynn seven years ago it was love at first sight. Despite everyone else who mattered to her despising him, Roxie was committed to her “misguided angel.” See, everyone else knew Billy was a criminal and it took Roxie three years into the relationship and four sudden relocations across the country to figure it out. But, it’s taken her four more years to successfully escape him, which is how she ended up in Denver, looking to stay with her Uncle Tex. However, when she lands at Fortnum’s bookstore, the first person she sees is Hank Nightingale and it’s her second go round with love at first sight. But, someone as honorable as Hank couldn’t possibly be interested in someone like her who’s been connected to someone as dishonorable as Billy…could he?
I knew I was in for a wild ride and this went far beyond my expectations. At first, Roxie’s escapades and attempts to elude Billy were humorous. Then it took a devastating turn I never saw coming but should have. This became a more complex story, one I actually preferred. Roxie was immediately embraced by the Rock Chick gang because in her heart she was one of them and they saw it, even if she couldn’t. I loved the fun but I also appreciated the emotional turmoil Roxie grappled with as she fought for her own self esteem. When it was suspenseful, it was downright scary.
Hank, of course, was everything I thought he’d be, though not as much the alpha as his brother and friends but just enough. I liked how he hung in there with Roxie, even when she was exasperating in her self doubt. I questioned whether the narrator would find a unique voice for her and surprisingly she did so. Her storytelling skills continue to be a highlight and helped make this a very satisfying listening experience.
