Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at 18 hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was. Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation - confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

Every other one of her novels have been entertaining and I have read or listened to them all. This was a HUGE disappointment. Nothing interesting happened here at all, ever.
I wouldn't be so disappointed if I didn't know that she could do better, but I do. Not one character in this book was even worth mentioning. It was just Blaaaaaaaa. Come on Ms. Scott we are counting on you and your edgier characters and plots. in a genre full of Blaaaaa and "I only made it t to page 10 again, before my
gag reflex set in" we need real storytellers, like you, to deliver!
That said, adding a Male narrator really amps up an audible experience.
Please forgive this rating, I truly love your writing gift. Please consider this tough love.

Edie Evans is gorgeous. Sexy. Kind. She's also the definition of off-limits. But that didn't stop me from sneaking into her room to comfort her at night. But guys like me? We destroy everything, so it should have been no surprise when I destroyed us, too. The night I sent her running, I thought I'd never see her again. Until I saw her standing like a vision in the crowd.

The writing is well done. it's just a slog through way too much emotional angst to get to a real story. The first 3 chapters plus the last 5 were the best of the story. The middle of the story needed more supporting character development in order to make it interesting. The series as a whole depends way too much on the pasts of the main characters and way too little on their present. It would also be nice to draw in the rest of the band as group interacting throughout the story. The compelling element to read a series is too remain connected to the overall story of the group while getting the deeper stories of its individual members. Don't get me wrong, there is enough here to motivate me to finish the series, just not enough to read her next one. As for the narrators, I have listened to many stories with these two and they are great my reason for the 4 rating is because of the mispronunciations they drive me a little crazy.

It is 1988. On a dead-end street in a run-down suburb there is a music shop that stands small and brightly lit, jam-packed with records of every kind. Like a beacon, the shop attracts the lonely, the sleepless, and the adrift; Frank, the shop's owner, has a way of connecting his customers with just the piece of music they need. Then, one day, into his shop comes a beautiful young woman, Ilse Brauchmann, who asks Frank to teach her about music.

I was disappointed with this book. It just seemed to drag. There was no tie in with the other books and the characters were a little one dimensional. There was some great potential with the Puck and even the two main characters Sophie and Nicholas. I think it just never quite had the feeling of being an epic love story like the other books. I hope the next one brings a deeper tie in to the other domains and characters it just needs more.

This was just way too improbable to even enjoy as a fantasy. The sex was more prevalent than the story line. it would have been somewhat redeemable had the characters been developed more throughly. There are a lot of other almost identical books that have told this improbable tale, in a much more entertaining way. At least give your readers a reason to want to know more
about the characters than how many times they can have sex in 3 pages.

Rex Carter lives behind a wall of indifference. The demons from his childhood act as an anesthetic, keeping him distant from emotional connections. Only the ache from a knock to the jaw, the sting of a tattoo needle, or the heat from a piercing can jolt him back from the numbness. The fiery pain is all he can feel, and nothing compares to the burn. Or so he thought. Working in a Las Vegas bar isn't Georgia McIntyre's dream. But she hopes it'll be an end to the nightmare.

The Narration is superb as always with Erin Maloon.
The fact that some of the characters aren't very likable adds a much needed
taste of reality to the story. tThe continuinge interactions among the characters throughout the series is also well done. While lifestyles of the rich and shameless are far far too prevalent in this genre as a rule. This takes the usual wealth gurantees happiness and turns it on its head. The biggest plus.
