Find the strongest man there. Give yourself to him in return for protection. It’s the only way you’ll ever survive.Convicted of a minor crime, Riana is sentenced to a prison planet—a dark primitive hold filled with convicts vying for power. Her only chance of survival is with Cain, a mysterious loner who has won his territory in the prison through intelligence and brute strength. Sex is all she has to offer, so she uses it. She’s under no delusions here. No one is ever released, and no one ever escapes. Survival is all she can hope for—until Cain. FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I have read this story, in one version or another at least 10 times. When I saw that it was released in audiobook format I had to get it. The audiobook is becoming my favorite way to enjoy books. I think it’s because I can listen while driving, or at work, unlike a book. The Audiobook version of Hold was excellent, Kirsten Leigh was fantastic, and I am thrilled that Kent acquired such a brilliant narrator to do her book justice. I will reiterate from my previous review that I love the original story better before Hall was introduced. Yet I understand that he is intricate in continuing the series. After going through the story a second time with Hall, this time in audiobook format, I was ok with his inclusion. I really hope Kent release the other two books in the series in audiobook format, but if she doesn’t Hold will continue to be that book that I read over and over. It is just so raw and primal. I love it.
