I love Jamie Beck books and the story was good. But the narrator was almost unbearable. Annoyingly dramatic narration.

Jake McKallister might have been a rock star, but he was no ordinary one. Surviving an unspeakable crime as a young teen had shaped him into a guarded workaholic, and he now lived his life trying to forget. If it hadn't been for music and the redemption he found through it, he might not have survived. Career success came easily for him. Personal connections did not.

Very, very slow beginning. Listened to almost two hours and could not do another minute. Not a great story and a British accent narrates ;(
