And he does possess her, whispering wicked wonderful promises to her, stealing her trust and her heart. Soon though, the past finds her, yanking her from a cocoon of passion and safety. Everything is not how it seems. The truth will shatter her world, but it can set her free, if it doesn’t destroy her first.

Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Ella wakes from an unconscious state to find herself in an Italian hospital with no memory of how she got there, who she is or what happened to her. When her vision clears she’s looking directly into the eyes of a stranger, a beautiful stranger. Her rescuer is Kayden a man she doesn’t remember but somehow seems familiar to her.

Kayden is insistent that Ella tries to remember who she is and isn’t above using strong arm tactics to jog her memory. When the pieces of her life start falling back into place, Ella longs for the days of having no memory, because she’s in serious trouble with some shady characters and her savior may just be her executioner.

I loved this story, a spin-off from the Inside Out series and it’s every bit as exciting and suspenseful as the first series. The cat and mouse chase makes your heart race and I wondered how the hell they were going to get out of some pretty tight predicaments. The action in Denial is non-stop and that’s my favorite kind of story! I love to hate suspense and I kept my finger hovering over the pause button during some particularly intense scenes, just in case I needed to take a break and collect myself!

The audiobook Denial slides on at just under 9 hours and I will tell you, the time flew by! Elizabeth Louise narrates this series a departure from Grace Grant, who narrates the Inside Out series. I was a little skeptical because I’d never heard Elizabeth Louise read before, but she did a wonderful job on this fully voiced production. I will definitely add her to my list of favorite narrators and I look forward to following this series to its conclusion!

Suzanne Todd on the INSIDE OUT series: Lisa has created a beautiful, complicated, and sensual world that is filled with intrigue and suspense.
