Publisher's Summary

Warren "War" Jinkins is that guy. The bad one. Tempest's ex front man, an arrogant rock god. The only thing larger than his ego is his capacity for self-destruction. His bad attitude has cost him. His woman. His best friend. His band. Everything. Shaina Bentley is that girl. The good one. Hollywood's pink candy-coated sweetheart. The star of Pinky Swear, television's top rated teen show. She's been practically perfect since that horrible day. But she's starting to crack under the strain of being everything to everyone. He's a one man island. She's a fragile captive soul. Is love a current too dangerous to cross or will it be the bridge that brings them together?

Author note: Each book in the Tempest series is a full and complete novel featuring a different band member.

    "Declaring War"
    What did you love best about Captivating Bridge?

    Captivating Bridge was a surprise for me, from the previous 2 books in the series I HATED WAR. But throughout this book your shown that beneath his flaws he's really lovable in a jerk off way


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Captivating Bridge?

    Think the most memorable moment was War and Shanna signing together after making up. I love how Michelle Malkin always incorporates music in her audio books, just wish Wen and Kai actually sang lol


    What does Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Wen and Kai give the characters voices, sass, and attitude


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes unfortunately I couldn't due to adyluting hut I listened in 3 days 😊😊😊


    Any additional comments?

    Another amazing addition to the Tempest series was wary of listening due to my dislike of War but glad I do.

    Story
    "All Because Of A Bridge!"
    What made the experience of listening to Captivating Bridge the most enjoyable?

    The way that Kai and Wen bring the whole shebang alive. I can actually see it playing out in my minds eye. Every detail is described, you know, the ones that can be missed while reading?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Captivating Bridge?

    When Warren made the vow to change. To be a better man, get away from the drugs. And he really meant it this time, no excuses.


    Have you listened to any of Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    They are always Awesome. Always bring it to life for me.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A lot of fun, and excitement, but also many heart breaking moments, and yes, I did cry. I cryed for all War went through, and him thinking he wasn't worth anything.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a VERY emotional read.....get the tissues ready!

    "wow, this series just keeos getting better"

    I was surprised how much I liked this book. I disliked Warren's character so much in the first book, I was expecting his journey to salvation to be just as dark. Loved the girl he ended up with. Let's face it, only someone as sweet as cotton candy could have lightened this dark soul. The narrators have gotten better with each book, so they both gave brilliant performances. Wish book 4 was available on audible. In the mean time, off to find another great audible...

    Story
    "Tears and Laughter"

    This is an amazing continuation of the Tempest series. As always, Wen and Kai did a fantastic job narrating this story. I love how their voices bring so much feeling to the story. They really know how to bring a story to life.
    I'm so glad that War finally got his own story. I loved being able to see inside his thoughts. Finally knowing why he does the things he does. Then in comes Shaina. I really liked Shaina. I really felt for her and what she went through. At the same time, I disliked quite a bit of her actions. Sometimes her sticky sweetness really got on my nerves. I was so happy when she started living for herself. Did she make some really stupid decisions? Of course she did! But that's what made her so real. She was exactly what Warren needed in his life. Even if he was too stupid to realize it.
    I was so happy to see Lace, Bryan, Dizzy and the rest of the gang! It's always nice to catch up with them. I'm looking forward to listening to Dizzy's story next.

    "An unusual love story"
    Would you listen to Captivating Bridge again? Why?

    Yes, because it's a good story with interesting characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Captivating Bridge?

    When they figured out that they're better together than apart and found the guts to stand together.


    Have you listened to any of Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to several, this is one of their better performances.

    "War's Captivating Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    In a heartbeat. This series of audiobooks is the best I've ever listened to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Shaina Bentley. She was the perfect contrast to War.


    What about Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott ’s performance did you like?

    I loved how they made the characters, even the minor ones, come alive. I love listening to dual narrators. It makes the characters' interactions so much more real. These two made the alternating POVs awesome.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. It was a lot darker than the previous two. I cried in several parts, but there was laughter, too. There should be a trigger warning for a couple of scenes. Mankin was able to redeem War's character for me, even though he did some despicable things in this book and the prior ones.


    Any additional comments?

    This series seriously rocks. The writing is excellent, the characters empathetic, and the narration is perfect. I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    Story
    "Hot! Beautiful Love Story! Cried Big Ugly Tears!"
    Would you listen to Captivating Bridge again? Why?

    Absolutely and definitely! It has become one of my favorite books by far. It was so emotionally gut-wrenchingly sad, but was a beautiful story with a very happy ending. Not to mention it was super hot.


    What other book might you compare Captivating Bridge to and why?

    All of the books in the Tempest series are fantastic. All the band members have struggles to overcome, and the love they experience with their significant others and the friendship they share with their band mates is nothing short of breathtaking.


    Which character – as performed by Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott – was your favorite?

    I loved War and Shaina. Kai and Wen always do a phenomenal job with their narrations. Their chemistry is fantastic and they have the ability to tell a story in a way that is not only enjoyable, but will always leave an imprint on my heart.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes definitely! I laughed, I cried, I definitely swooned. This book is filled with so many emotions and to experience them all in one book was great. I have to say I hated War in the first book. But, oh my, did he ever redeem himself in this book. He is my character in the series now and this book is my favorite in the series by far.


    Any additional comments?

    The Tempest series is by far my favorite series I have read. It not only gives you a glimpse of the harsh realities of life, but it also gives you hope that there is always something better. The love the characters feel for each other is beautiful. Michelle Mankin's storytelling is rhythmic and simply amazing. The narrators both Kai Kennicot and Wen Ross did another phenomenal job bring the story to life.

    Story
    "HE'S TOXIC, SHE'S INNOCENT & HEARTACHE IS THE GLUE"

    Rocker bad-boy and bad-ass Warren (aka War) has stormed away from his Band Tempest and he's had enough.... enough of being thrown away, enough of the heartache and enough of the pain - but just as he's ready to end all and jump a compelling female, all dressed in pink, pleads to save him. One night, that's all he's prepared to offer this mysterious and captivating woman.... but she must stay naked or the deal's off.

    Soap star actress Shaina feels she's got so much in common with this sorrow-filled handsome stranger because she's trying to overcome a painful tragedy and loss in her life too so, in desperation, she bargains with him in the hope that she might just make a difference. But what she's not prepared for is the instant connection, sizzling chemistry, raw passion and hot sex that has her falling madly and deeply from the start. However, War's toxic nature and a terrible misunderstanding soon has devastating hurtful consequences for them both which turns Shaina's love into hate and War's anger and rejection into the possibility of finally finding healing and dare he hope for.... his salvation too.

    Instant lust and love quickly followed by a lot of angst and drama filled weeks as they both do a 180 in their personalities which makes for a very addictive, enjoyable and drama filled listen. But what makes this sooo good (for me) is the dual POV's and the dual narration which is said as if they are having an actual conversation with each other rather than chapters of the male narrator trying to do the female's voice and vica versa..... what a refreshing change.

    Worth a credit? To get the most from this listen it would be better to listen to the backstory in the previous books and, as with those previous Tempest books, the characters really grab me, their stories entice me and the HEA endings always leave me wanting more. So creditworthy? YUP, and it's a series I'll gladly follow.... however beware, as with all these rock star romances, there is a lot of 'as if's', eye-rolling and 'instant' love but you know what? I know this is escapism FICTION (which I love) and so.... I just didn't care.
