This book itself is an interesting book, but unfortunately the narration took away from it drastically. The main problem is that there is an echo or a tin can sound throughout the whole book as if it was recorded in a bad location. The next is that you cannot tell who is speaking in the book until you put the context together and figure it out yourself. All in all the book is good but to enjoy it best you probably want to still with the book and read it yourself.

Holy cow! This book will take you on a roller coaster and back with emotions. I loved the two main characters but all the secondary ones were very intriguing as well. The twists and turns from emotions that no one can really explain until you sit down and really think about it is great. I haven’t listened to the first book in this series and was able to follow perfectly. I will definitely be getting the first and waiting for the third.

The Irish rock band Rogue is made up of four best friends. Nothing can come between them . . . or can it? Gavin McManus always knew he was born to be a famous singer/songwriter. This confidence, along with his sexy, but wounded, rock-star mystique propels his band Rogue into the spotlight. Sophie Kavanaugh was drawn to Gavin long before he found fame. Her own desire to be what he needed, to somehow be the one to fix him, binds them together in a desperate kind of love. Conor Quinn has always dismissed his attraction to Sophie as harmless, but could it be something more?

This book was very good, but I was a bit disappointed with not being able to see a happy ending. I am hoping in the next book that it will be reached.

Easton Harrison always gets what he wants. All this rock star has to do is crook his finger and women come running. Unfortunately, hookups don’t inspire the songs for which he’s known, and Easton hasn't been able to write a word since his last hit. After he lands an exclusive gig in Vegas at the Millennium Hotel, the pressure’s on to write a new album. But Ireland, the challenging and sexy-as-hell cocktail waitress who works downstairs at the hotel’s swanky bar, is exactly what he needs. She's his muse whether she likes it or not. Too bad she doesn't date musicians.

Amazing! Although I haven’t read the first two books in this series I will definitely be going back to get them. I absolutely loved the story of these two and the twists in here were just heartbreaking. I was so glad to see a happy ending there so it made the heartbreak worth it. The narration was spot on perfect!

I've always been the shy, quiet one. My best friend, the fun-loving, outgoing one. When she's gone, taken away entirely way too soon, I have to learn how to live. And not just for me, but for her too. I have to live for the both of us. That means doing things I'd never do, stepping out of the shadows to join the rest of the world - taking chances, falling in love, and getting into a little trouble along the way.

I Love it!!! This book was amazing and I would tell anyone who has not read it that they are missing out. Sarah Puckett did an amazing job narrating as she always does when I come upon a book that she has done and she paired so well with the story in this book. I will definitely be looking for more written by this author.

This was such a great group of books. Nice quick reads/listens if you just have a little time to listen but you also have enough that it lasts a while too. I enjoyed listening to each and every one of these stories and am excited to look into this author for more.
