Audiobook Revew: A Steel Heart by Amie Knight

A Steel Heart
by Amie Knight
Narrated by: Lisa Zimmerman, Kale Williams

Five seconds.
A deafening blast. Pain. Silence.
That was all it took for an IED to end my life as I knew it. The man I was shattered in a hard wave of sound and debris that rained down on me like death itself. And six months later, after waking up to an inescapable hell, I found myself wishing that death had found me. Until her.
Miranda Jacobs swept into my life like a cool breeze on a smoldering day. With her smart mouth and her ridiculous jokes, she brought me back to life one minute at a time. Turned out time wasn't on our side.
Five seconds.
Screams. Twisted metal. Silence.
And I'd lost it all again - only this time, I had no one to blame but myself.

My review: 5 stars!
One of the things I love about Amie Knight is that she can encompass so many feelings and emotions in her books- she can write witty dialog, touching emotional situations, and passion too! A Steel Heart had all of this and more. I loved how quirky Miranda was- after meeting her in See Through Heart I knew she was a character I wanted to get to know better. (Please note that A Steel Heart can definitely be enjoyed as a standalone.) I enjoyed her profession so much- she's a romance novel editor! So perfect! Holden's story was captivating and had me gripped. Their meeting and interactions were so well-written.  I was glad this was written in dual POV because both characters were so interesting and well-developed. 

Both narrators were excellent. Although they are both new to me, I enjoyed their performances so much. My go-to speed for audiobooks is 1.25X and A Steel Heart was perfect at this speed- very conversational and easy to follow.
