Audiobook Review: Splitting Lies, Lies #2, by Emma Jaye, narrated by Jonathan Waters

The expert narration adds depth to Splitting Lies that reading alone wouldn't necessarily give

From the blurb:

I’m drowning in myself, ripping apart.

Torn from my life, I’m in a world I don’t understand. There are no masters, no kneeling, and no loving punishments to keep me grounded.
Despite the smiles and care Jiao provides, I’m not his priority. I believe his concern is genuine, but his interest is professional. Casting my world into history is his aim, and for that I can't trust himThe voices are getting louder; I’m losing time. I need to hold on; need to stay loyal. Master will come for me soon, and blood will wash my sins clean. I refuse to imagine what they will do to the man who stole me.

Kaspar’s mental health is shot to pieces; he’s flipping between personalities. I wish I could give him what the psychiatrist says he needs… time. But lives depend on the information locked inside that gorgeous head. How can I crack his loyalty to the centuries-old slaver organization that has already tried to kill both of us, without breaking him completely?

My boss says it’s a price she’s willing to pay.
I’m not so sure.

Warning: These books are for adult readers who enjoy stories where lines between right and wrong get blurry. High heat, twisted and tantalizing, these are not for the fainthearted.

Jacquie's Review:

After the end of book 1 I was curious how the romance aspect of the story was going to work out and I admit being surprised by this.

Kasper has a lot of therapy and spends a lot of time as Cole but I loved the way that each personality came through to protect the whole. I enjoyed how Jiao embraced each personality. There's some drama but less triggers than book one. This cannot be read as a standalone

The narration was just perfect and Jonathan Waters moves into my top 3 narrators
