批評家のレビュー

“A novel about female empowerment, putting the past to rest, and of course, finding The One…Catherine Bybee at her best.” (Harlequin Junkie)

あらすじ・解説

An Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestseller.

Falling in love can come with the most unexpected risks in this First Wives novel from New York Times bestselling author Catherine Bybee.

Avery Grant doesn’t date. Her first marriage was a mutually beneficial contract that gave her the financial freedom she needed to step away from her controlling parents. Wealthy and single, the last thing she’s looking for is love sneaking in to mess up her life plans. And after a brutal attack, she’s determined to never be vulnerable again, even if the new man in her life helps her feel safe.

Mesmerized from the moment he sets his eyes on Avery, Liam is driven to learn everything about this tough, sexy, challenging woman. Breaking down her defenses won’t be easy, but Liam refuses to be pushed away. All he needs is a tiny crack in Avery’s armor to wiggle his way into her heart.

But when a terrifying lie about her attacker’s fate comes to light, Avery’s past returns to haunt her. Now she’s willing to put herself in danger to get the answers she needs. That means jeopardizing the best thing that’s ever happened to her: Liam.

LOVE IT!!!

Well, 1st I'll like to say I have another favorite author to add to my list; Catherine Bybee, YEA!!!
Kindle Unlimited is offering FREE read and listen on her "First Wives Series" 4 books currently, so I figure I would check it out and fell in love with all 4 books.
The narrator was AWESOME and she was the same one 4 all the books.
There's new storylines in each one, with mystery, suspense + humor; here n' there.
I definitely recommend all 4 books and I'm looking forward to more of her books. Ω

Heartwarming and inspiring!

I loved Avery and Liam’s romance! My heart broke for Avery during the last book because the snarky, confident, and outgoing woman we came to know and love was extinguished by an act of violence that changed everything. Liam is a wonderful man who is both protective and nurturing and he challenges Avery and encourages her to take back her power. Their story is sexy, romantic and inspiring. I love these women, the men in their lives and their heartwarming stories as written by Catherine Bybee and beautifully narrated by the brilliant and talented Emma Wilder.

Avery meets Mr Nice Guy & faces her nightmares

Avery decides to be proactive in learning self defense. She meets a really great man who she of course resists but really great guy. Liam is very tenacious. When she begins to feel secure, Avery begins to remember details of her attack and the fun begins. All first wives are involved in the story. A good story but drags occasionally. Liam is too good to be believed. Emma Wilder did a great job narrating though I normally prefer a dual performance. A good story.

Not as good as the first and second books

Almost done with the book, but this one isn't near as good as the other two.

I thought this was going to be an exciting one due to The Blonde Pitbull, but this book doesn't have as much action as the last two.

Hope the next one picks back up.

Chasing Shadows

Although I finished the story, I found some of the sex scenes too racy. This was not one of my favorites.

THE PITBULL? A BIG LETDOWN!

The best thing about this was Liam. He was a ride or die. Avery was a letdown. After all the training & drama about finding the man who brutalized her in the previous book, in the end Avery did nothing about what happened to her. Along the way she beat up men that made passes & got too personal in the bars where she was looking for her assailant, but when she finally found him, NOTHING. Not the police, not a smack, kick, punch, plunk upside the head or even a good talking to. Why?! Because he was in rehab & supposedly didn't know what he did ! Really? Not buying it. He knew he did something, all the blood that had to be on him. He almost killed her & basically got away with it. The beginning & middle of this book were pretty good the end was crap.

Great series

The suspense was really cool. The plot and characters were not easy to understand until the end. I am adding this author to my favorites.

LOVE this series!!!

I don’t usually listen to romance but this series has just enough mystery, humor, etc. to keep me listening and wanting more! I never read Catherine Bybee novels but I will be a follower for sure. The narrator does a great job and is easy to listen to. Highly recommend this series!

Another First Wives masterpiece by Catherine Bybee

Poor Avery but what a find in the lovely Liam.

Avery has been chasing her shadows or ghosts since her attack but so far her memory has failed her. Now, with her memory returning, she starts to remember bits and pieces about her attacker and is determined to seek revenge.

With Avery's confidence in tatters, she joins a Krav Maga class in the hope that she will never be a helpless victim again. Despite her training, she is unable to fight one-on-one with a man in the fear that it will trigger flashbacks. That is until her path crosses Liam's.

When Liam sees Avery almost flooring the unwanted attractions of a man in a bar he is determined to find out who this mystery woman is. Tracking her to her Krav Maga class, under the pretence of doing work for the owner, Brenda, Liam unexpectedly finds himself actively participating in Avery's class and her "target" for the night. Knowing she does not fear Liam and goaded by Brenda, the Krav Maga class instructor, Avery agrees to spar with Liam and before long, the duo are having drinks and dinner together after each session.

Liam falls fast and hard for Avery but with Avery's past, she finds it difficult to accept Liam into her life. Liam is determined to show Avery that she can have a relationship and fall in love but when he finds out about her attack he knows he must tread gently with her feelings and emotions.

Avery is once again supported through her troubles by her loyal friends and "First Wives". Also in the mix, much to my delight is Sasha. There's something about that woman that fascinates me.

As expected, the Audible narration is spot on with these characters. I don't know how Emma Wilder manages to pull off so many seemingly flawless foreign accents.

Catherine Bybee has managed to write so many amazing stories to date and I can't wait to read on. I fear, however, that I have almost cleared her back catalogue and the dreaded reading slump may await me!

Avery’s story continues

Not as sexually charged as previous books, but a fabulous next step in the lives of the group of friends.
