Aleena Moore has never quite gotten over the tragedy of her youth and the disappearance of the boy she always looked up to. After Jared’s world collapses he runs leaving her behind in a world which isn't the same without him. Aleena has been Jared’s sidekick practically from the moment she was born. He was like a protective big brother which gradually become her first crush and then her first love. She hurts at how broken the sweet boy she knew became and wonders about where life took him and if he is OK.
Then one fateful afternoon Jared comes back. Haunted, scarred, and covered in tattoos of his pain and his sin. Despite his insistence that Aleena stay away, she cannot help but be drawn to this rough and damaged boy that so completely captures her soul. Although Jared knows he destroys everything that is good and pure in the world, after so many years of suffering he cannot help but crave the comfort and peace that he can only find in Aleena’s arms. The little girl he once knew has grown up and she draws him to her like a moth to light… he is powerless to escape. But as their connection grows stronger, Jared knows the only way to protect Aleena is to get as far away from her as possible before he destroys her too.
Come to Me Quietly is a powerful and touching romance. You can’t help but feel for Jared- for his pain and self-destruction and the boy he once was. Aleena is a beautiful light and kindness that is the perfect blend to Jared’s darkness. Jared is protective, sexy as hell, and a guy one can’t help but fall for and Aleena is sweet, trusting, and very likable. This story is expertly done.
The narration is outstanding. Both Todd Haberkorn and Tanya Eb capture the gripping emotion, heartfelt pain and intense longing of the characters. This audiobook is easy to get absorbed in and impossible to put down. A must read!
