A girl with regrets…
Sasha Cherlin died the night she let Nick Tate walk out on her for a life of crime. Her very essence was destroyed when they broke their promise to one another.
A man with remorse…
Nick Tate made his choice with her future in mind. He loved Sasha enough to know that leaving her behind was the only way to keep her safe.
A path to revenge…
Special Agent Jax Barlow understands the bond of love and he plans to use it to get justice. Nick and Sasha will do anything to rewrite their past. He’s counting on that to bring them down.
Wasted Lust was one of my favorite Company / Rook & Ronin stories, both because I had been so curious about Sasha, and because anything that happens in this universe is bound to be amazing…
Listening to a favorite book enhances the experience in many ways, and Wasted Lust is proof of that! The narrators did an amazing job, and they managed to bring my distaste for Jax forward in the beginning of the story. There is one male and one female narrator, so that Sasha’s chapters are narrated by the woman and Jax’ chapters by the man. This worked very well, and I was so completely immersed in the story I sometimes didn’t want to leave my car and get into work.
Sasha’s story hit me even harder when I listened to it, and I felt so much for her. All the hardship she had been through when she was young, and the way it all caught up to her. Jax and his backstory definitely touched me, too, and I had forgotten just how deep into company business he was in order to get his revenge.
Nick is always the one who makes my heart hurt the most, though. Wasted Lust in audio brought that home even more, and I had trouble going to class and teach without anyone noticing I had been crying. If you enjoy Huss’ stories, just know that her audios make them even better. The narrators are great, and the way they deliver the characters’ feelings and thoughts to the listeners is so well done.
You don’t have to buy happiness, Sasha, it’s free.
