Dalton Calhoun hadn't always planned on a life up on the big stage, beneath the bright lights, but that was where he found himself. A second chance of sorts. An opportunity that had come along after his real dreams vanished when he was 18 years old. Although country music was more than he could've expected, he'd never dismissed the notion that there was still something missing. When Dalton followed his buddy Cooper Krenshaw to Devil's Bend, Texas, it didn't take long before Dalton realized just what that was. But just because he has topped the country music charts, and made his fair share of women swoon, doesn't mean that everything comes easy to him. And when he sets his sights on the black haired, gray-eyed waitress at The Rusty Nail, Dalton realizes he might just have to work for what he wants.
Katie Clarren's life has been a series of unfortunate events, starting from the time her mother left on her 18th birthday. Not exactly how she had planned to spend one of the major turning points in her young life. Nor had she planned to spend the next five years dealing with the fallout. Somewhere along the way, Katie adapted, doing exactly what she needed to do in order to survive. But Katie has secrets that even her closest friends don't know. Secrets she has worked hard to protect. Although she longs for handsome, charming, country-music sensation Dalton Calhoun, she knows that anything that starts between them can't last. Too bad her heart doesn't seem to be on the same page.
Katie gives in to her love for Dalton, needing that human connection that has been missing for so long. But when it comes time to make the hard decisions, Katie forces herself to walk away from him. To protect her secrets, and him. The last thing she wants to do is hurt Dalton, no matter how much pain she has to endure in the process. She loves him. Can the two of them overcome the secrets and lies?

Yes. The story is fun and surprising. The narrators brought the story to life.
Katie. The female narrator did a fantastic job.
I forgot I was listening to a story. I was lost in the narration. They nailed it.
Hope in the struggle.
I am relatively new to audio books. This was my first book with two narrators. At first, it was distracting. However, that quickly passed.The story came to life with two narrators. I will look for more books by these two.

Great narrator performance!
After reading Chasing Dreams, I looked forward to reading Dalton's story. While it was a perfectly entertaining, sizzling romance, it was a bit less than I'd hoped it to be. The main problem being that the hints at the heroine's secrets were drawn out and repetitive.
I love these two narrators. Their ability to read multiple characters in a book with ease and skill keeps me coming back for more.
If you're looking for a sweet romance with some angst and sizzle, performed by two fantastic narrators, Vanishing Dreams is a great choice.
Delicious, amazing story!
The way the author slowly unveiled the secrets.
I am speechless. I love the dual narration. Makes the story come to life. The narrators were, um, amazing!
I loved, loved, loved the audiobook. My body responded. My heart raced. I wanted to cry, shout, and so many other things.
Chapters 6 and 7 knocked my socks off. After my man went to bed, I listened again. OMG. OMG. OMG. Seriously, ladies, trust me. That voice will speak to every part of you. Trust me! You will thank me. ;) ... You are welcome. Ha.
The story was ok. But horrible narration. The female narrator just didn't do the story justice. During the sex scenes she sounded like a porn star. Second someone forget to proof read or edit several mistakes. I would not recommend this book. Would have been better with different narrators.
