Audio-fiction ADDICT !
This book was such a WONDERFUL surprise ! I do not know the author. I bought it because I am a big fan of the narrator Justine Ayre. But I was pleasantly surprised! I am not agog fan of rock stars, but this book makes you fall in love with one! This book was so well written , exploring the difficulties in celebrity personal relationships. The plot was good, the interactions and the characters, all well well well written. I LOVED IT.
Moreover, Justine Eyre is such a good narrator, but with this book she had outdone herself !!! She did such an excellent job with this book. She improves each time I listen to her. Well done! I believe this book is part of a series , I can not wait !
I read this book on my kindle before getting the audiobook at a discount. I'm so glad I did! The narrator's voice was annoying and did not fit the part. I would not have been able to finish the book if I had not read it first. The narrator's voice and performance is that bad. It's a shame because many people will be turned off by it.
Wow, this book took a long time to really catch my interest. Tru has to be the most indecisive female lead ever! She must have whiplash from how often and how quickly she changes her mind. Jake is your typical bad boy rocker with a bad childhood. As expected, he self medicates with drugs, alcohol and women. The one redeeming value is that they were childhood best friends and it's interesting seeing how that affects their relationship.
Close to the top. The British narrator was captivating to listen to and I really enjoyed this story. I definitely recommend it to my book friends.
Jake - he is quite swoon worthy.
Her British accent heightened my experience as I heard her voice not the one in my head who is not British.
No laughing or crying but it was intense at times. I may have shouted at Trudy once or twice while listening.
I have generally steered clear of rockstar romances because I don't care for the lifestyle and shenanigans they typically glamorize. I took a chance with this book and I am so glad I did because this is NOT your typical rockstar romance. It is SO MUCH MORE.
Jake Wethers may behave like a typical rockstar, but he is somewhat of an anomaly. Beneath the brooding musician is a complex man with wounds that run deep and a heart that has only loved one woman. While I disliked the behaviors, I fell in love with Jake. I was quite upset with Tru for a bit, but as the story progressed I came to understand the connection she found with Jake. They were soul mates.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, less a couple of things. I was enthralled with these characters taking every spare moment I could to read or listen to the audiobook. I was especially pleased to have book #2 ready to go right away.
God, I so disliked Trudi. I just can't find one redeeming value in her character. She will tell a lie when the truth will do just as good, she is weak and a coward. So, she runs into her long lost childhood friend Jake, who is now a famous rock star. There is instant lust/obsession, remembered love, blah, etc...Trudi has boyfriend of 2 years who she cheats on, but she's too lame to be honest with him, drama ensues.... oh hell, just read it if you like this kind of bull$hit triangle drama. Good thing she's beautiful, 'cause we know that's the most important thing about her anyway, otherwise, I can't see why any man would put up with this insecure, idiot, who hasn't matured since she was 14.
Very entertaining book. There are several rock star series out there now. I would say it matches up to them
Jake of course. Got to love the sexy rockers with a difficult past and finding the right girl to finally settle down with.
I do not feel the right narrator was cast for this book. The narrator, although very good, did not match up to the characters. She is a better fit for a Jane Austin type of book.
No extreme reactions, but at times hard to put down. I listed to the book twice, so I did enjoy the story.
I do not give a synopsis of the book, just my opinion on the listen. I am not a book critic, just one who loves to read!
This was a great listen.... it has every emotional imaginable... including forgiveness.
Jake by far ..... he has so many emotional hurdles to over come.
The tear jerking emotional time in the hotel room between Tru and Jake.
Yes, when Tru found Jake with another woman.
This book was a huge surprise. I get tired of of two part stories, but I definitely think this one is a great one to follow!! I cannot wait to read part two!
something that could truly happen..
when she first saw jake in the hotel room all the memories came flooding back.
awesome job...really enjoyed the different voices for each person..
HOT HOT HOT
yes and I have
tru bennet for loving jake enough to go to hell and back for him to turn his life around and make a good man out of him
I loved the narrator she makes the book come alive
in the hospital when jake goes to his knees and starts to cry I cried too as it was so heart wrenching. The whole hospital segment was so gut wrenching and raw
these 2 books are right up there with my favorites

Yes....I love Jake and Tru and I love their story.
Not for any good reasons...but the Mr. Brightside scene...ripped my heart out.
I loved her accent, she sounded a little too old to really pull Tru off for me and I don't know if it's the recording or her but she had a little bit of a lisp at times - but British accents = awesome in my book, so I'm really just being nit-picky
Just everything that makes Tru and Jake who they are - I just love them to bits and pieces.
Great beginning to a fantastically addictive series - I really can't say too many times how much this book sucked me in.
