Description

She's the only one who ever loved him - and the only one he can never have.

Jude lost everything one spring day when he crashed his car into an apple tree on the side of the road. A man is dead, and there is no way he can ever right that wrong. He would forever steer clear of Colebury, Vermont, if he could. But an ex-con in recovery for his drug addiction can't find a job just anywhere.

Sophie Haines is stunned by his reappearance. After a three-year absence, the man who killed her brother and broke her heart is suddenly everywhere she turns. It's hard not to stare at how much he has changed. The bad boy who used to love her didn't have big biceps and sun-kissed hair. And he would never volunteer in the church kitchen.

No one wants to see Sophie and Jude back together, least of all Sophie's father, the police chief. But it's a small town - and forbidden love is a law unto itself.

So many feels

This is one of the Shipley "family" members that I was so hoping to hear about and I wasn't disappointed at all.

The time has come for Jude to leave the Shipley farm and face his demons. He killed Sophie's brother and I thought there would be no way for him to redeem himself. Sophie is his soulmate and when they finally meet again he learns that things aren't going well for her either.

There are a lot of secrets and lies that finally get discovered leaving us with an HEA that made me feel ALL THE FEELS.

seraphine and Jeffrey were great narrators. Although I felt Jeffrey had an older voice than what I thought Jude would have, it was easy to readjust my preconceived notions and slip into his narration.

Jude Rocked, Sophie Wimpered

While I found Jude instantly engaging and sympathetic, I had a much harder time relating to the more wimpy Sophie. She meekly allowed her heartless father to batter her and her spineless mother to manipulate her entire life.

It was difficult to believe that a man as strong and resilient as Jude would be attracted to a young woman like Sophie who had no self-respect or awareness. If not for the amazing secondary characters, I probably would not have finished Steadfast.

Since this author is obviously incredibly talented, I am hopeful that her next series will focus on older, more mature characters rather than young adults.

Great story but...

The male narrator was great but his voice was far too mature for Jude's character. That is a pet peeve of mine. I think it's important to make sure those who narrate match the character.

great story, good female narrator

I enjoyed the story and the series, however I enjoyed the male narrator for the first book way more than Jude's narrator in this book. It sounded like Jude's narrator was trying to read his roll ironically. The narrator for Sophie was amazing. I've been brought in to the heartfelt story of this family and their loves and I enjoy the storylines.

Great story, but

I like this series so far but Jeffrey sounds like "Dragnet". Not much expression. Seraphine did a good job with both male and female voices. I felt like I got a small glimpse into the struggles of an addict.
Definitely worth the read.

5 Stars for this Audiobook, Writer, and Narrators

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I loved this audiobook as a continuation in a series or a standalone. I had previously purchased the ebook and audio upgrade for the first book in the series, but hadn't gotten around to listening to it yet. I went ahead and listened to it first when I was given this second installment. I was unsure how I would like them since this is my first experience with the author and the narrators. However, the author and narrator, Jeffrey Kafer are praised and highly recommended in my facebook group Aural Fixation, so I thought I should give them a try. I FLoved them!!! The writing is excellent with the characters and their world, and the narrators did an excellent job of bringing them to life. I fell in love with Jeffrey Kafer's sexy, gruff and growly voice. I am now looking up other titles of his work to listen to. I can't wait for the third installment of this series to be released so I can emerge myself back into this world. Highly recommended.

Great Listen

I usually stay away from books about high school and teenage angst, but this coming of age story, overcoming addiction, overcoming heartbreak, and finding truth is more than worth the listen. I read the book and listened to the story. I loved the portrayal of the characters by Seraphine Valentine and Jeffrey Kafer, both new narrators to me. I thought they did a great job. It is the first book by this author for me as well. As I said, I usually avoid these types of stories, but this one caught me and kept me interested and rooting for the characters to find their way. More than worth your time and the listen.

Enjoyed the story

I didn't love the performance of Jude. He sounded much older than i thought a 23 year old would.
