Publisher's Summary

Yara Phillips is a wandering muse. She dates men who need her, but always moves on to something new, never staying in one place for very long.  

David Lisey is in need of a muse. A talented musician lacking lyrical inspiration. When he first sees her, he knows he's found what he's been seeking.  

Yara believes she can give David exactly what he needs to reach his full potential: a broken heart. 

David’s religion is love. Yara’s religion is heartache. Neither is willing to surrender, but religion always requires sacrifice.

Tarryn never disappoints

I love Tarryn Fisher stories. All her books have damaged characters you can’t get out of your head. You may or may not like the characters, but you can’t stop reading about them, like watching a train wreck. Yara has commitment issues and she knows why. It stems from her Mother. She has never been in love.....she doesn’t stick around long enough to know what that is. She never sticks around anywhere long enough to develop roots. Then David comes along. She is his Muse and loves her completely! He has faith in her, but she doesn’t have faith in herself. Yara does what Yara does best......run. The connection between David and Yara is intense and it push/pulls the relationship. No matter how far Yara runs, she is unable to forget David.

What I like about Fishers characters is they are complicated and messy, yet fragile. I really tire of the same ‘ol, same ‘ol romance stories. Fisher steps outside that box. I never feel like I’ve read a cookie cutter romance with this author. While this particular book was less dark and depressing, like Fisher’s other stories, there is an element of damage. I really like that. It feels real. Tarryn Fisher is an easy buy for me. Very talented writer. Every now and again, she writes a turn of phrase that has me stop and ponder. It’s sysinct and clever. She can also write what appears as mundane, and make it interesting. I look forward to more from this author.

FInty Williams was excellent. I first heard her in The Girl with All the Gifts. She was brilliant. She handled an American accent fairly well, but I could listen to her various British accents for days. Alexander did well too, tho he had a much smaller part than FInty.

What a story

I must say Tarryn Fisher has created a story that is a wonderfully mastered mess, but that’s what I love about her writing. No typical girl meets boy, boy falls for girl HEA. She has hea’s but makes it interesting getting there.
Yara Phillips a nomad has no true home, she was abandoned by her mother never knew her father, bar tends to pay her bills, and flees when things in her confused mind get out of control, till she meets David Linsey who is a musician that has lost his way. David knows from the beginning Yara belongs with him, he just needs to convince her, but I have given you all I’m going to, that where the mastered mess comes in and you need to listen to Finty Williams and Alexander Cendese tell the story.

Better than anything ever.

I have read thousands and thousands of books. Atheists who kneel and Pray is the best audio book I have ever experienced. I feel gutted and hopeful and have cried 6 times at least throughout the book. Yarra and David were amazingly well written magical characters.

The song of David

Listen to the song of David for his inspiration strikes from a cynic of love. Waiting for the epiphany to hit when ready to accept love and become enough to love.

I really like the length of the chapters Tarryn wrote in AWKP. Tarryn always writes intriguing characters. The complexity of their personalities is her signature mark that sets her apart from other authors.

Narrator: I’m loving the British performance. Alexander Cendese and Flinty Williams. I’m not sure which of these narrators is the female or male so I apologize when I voice my complaint about the male performers voice. I hated it. He sounds nothing like the David I pictured in my head. However, the female character was top notch. She gave a splendid performance of Yara’s character.

Story: Yara is skeptical of love. She travels around the world never staying rooted in one place hoping to find herself. Yara never meant to fall in love and when David sits at her bar looking for a muse to inspire his writing as a musician Yara becomes scared and confused by her feelings towards him.

Overall: I usually cringe and runaway myself from these type of characters. Yara’s inability to face her fears and runaway from her feelings is frustrating as a reader. Yet, Tarryn writes a compelling story convincing me not to quit on Yara.
I had to ask myself if I liked Yara’s character. Most of the time I did and didn’t. Her jealousy caused paranoia clouding her judgment of David which was difficult to read. David’s character provided the balance needed to thwart off some of Yara’s personality traits.

“This is the most beautiful my life has ever been,” David said. “This is what I want.” My favorite quote.
