Possession (Avenues Ink Series, Book 1) by A. M. Johnson
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from Ari
Narrators: Tracy Marks, Aaron Shedlock
Length: 9 hrs, 18 mins
Paige Simon was the only girl Declan ever loved. The only one capable of silencing his voices, the only person to ever have faith in who he was, until the day her faith turned to doubt and destroyed everything they’d made together.
Declan O ’Connell was the only person Paige could be herself with. The only one she could rely on, until the day she was forced to make a choice that would condemn them both.
They’ve had years apart, and second chances don’t belong to the damned. But when you come face to face with your savior, it’s almost impossible to walk away. In order to move beyond the sins of their past, and forever silence the demons in his head, they’ll have to risk it all.
But with love, there are real reasons to be afraid and, sometimes… your salvation is your damnation.
Possession was raw, poignant and breathtaking. I was pretty much captivated from the very first chapter and moved by the struggle these flawed characters endured. I loved the poetry of A M Johnson’s storytelling. She expertly weaved a unique, and hauntingly beautiful tale of second chances, and unconditional love. She tackled very sensitive subject matter with honesty and empathy. I felt everything right along with Paige and Declan. They were so real, raw and perfectly imperfect; the way they saw in each other what no one else could. They made each other stronger and helped each other fly. I also loved Declan’s supportive, and protective brothers, and how essential they were in each others lives.
Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks were quite simply mesmerizing in this audiobook! But Aaron is, by far, outstanding in his narration. The way he managed to capture every single emotion and bring it to life flawlessly is nothing short of extraordinary. He surpasses simple narration and vocally embodied Declan and his all his demons. Tracy Marks for her part was the perfect compliment to Mr. Shedlock and did A. M. Johnson’s words justice and then some. I found myself completely drawn into their performance and I truly didn’t want it to end.
