Publisher's Summary

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops. I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen. The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness. Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn't always the truth. Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find. And in a flash, she was gone.

Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans. She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated. Caged. Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her. Now she was back, and I wouldn't make the mistake of letting her go again.

When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops. When we met again, I became her darkest storm.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

Another great book from this author. I know going into a Brittainy Cherry book that it will be an emotional roller coaster and that is exactly what this book was! Jasmine & Elliott were both great characters. Jasmine had some baggage thanks to her mother and Eli had a very rough time in high school. Eli is damaged by tragedy until Jasmine helps to bring back the boy she once knew. It was rough, sweet, emotional and heartbreaking.

The narration was 50/50 for me. Erin Mallon was great, her Elliott was fantastic. Kevin Free wasn't what I thought Elliott sounded like and his female's came across too excited and high pitched for my taste.

Brilliant and emotional!

Brittany Cherry keeps writing better and better books! This audiobook was an angst filled emotional ride with wonderful messages of loss, forgiveness and perseverance. The characters are so real that you feel like you know them. The story revolves around two people destined for each other that get separated by circumstances and their finding the way back to each other. Narration was perfect and I just can’t recommend a better story.

Great but bad male narrator

Of course Erin Mallon is fabulous she should have narrated for both. The male voice was not good.
Brittany Cherry IS AMAZING!!! One is my top 3 authors!

Absolutely Stunning!

Any additional comments?

“One can’t truly heal if they pretend the cracks don’t exist.”

Wow! My heart! Brittainy Cherry always writes the most emotionally hitting stories, and Behind the Bars hit me like a ton of bricks. It’s a beautiful roller coaster of emotions that grip you from the start and never you let you go!

These characters! My goodness, this is a network of beautiful, caring, loving people that are written with such heart. You fall in love with them all. The love and support from Laura, Ray, and TJ makes your heart sing.

“Whenever I thought of home, I didn’t think of a place; I thought of people, the ones who shaped us into the people we were meant to become, the ones who loved us with our scars and told us those scars were beautiful, the ones who allowed us to make mistakes and still loved us fully.”

The writing! So passionate and full of heart and soul. My heart ached for both Elliott and Jasmine, each going through their own emotional turmoil. The sweetness and tenderness of their hearts is overwhelming, both so compassionate. The way they view each other through each other’s eyes is heartwarming. The beautiful blossom of friendship, the hurt and disconnect, the way they, through each other, helped each other heal, it’s stunning.

I was swept up in this story, I couldn’t put it down, and I felt everything! There were parts of this story that were hard to read, my heart ached, and then were so many incredibly beautiful moments that made my heart soar. So full of emotion!

This is a beautiful story of strength, healing, hope, forgiveness, and love. It resonates deep and will stay with you long after you’ve finished. Simply stunning!

Wow - that grabbed me by the heart

This author is exceptional at weaving a tale of happy precious moments glimpsing out from utter heartbreak, and this book was well on its way to being rated 5 stars. However, the last part of the book tried way too hard to be poetic and romantic and it just seemed forced and fake. Compared to all the ‘real’ for the majority of the book where it grabbed my heart and emotions hard, this was a disappointment. All the drama was from real life strife rather than between the couple or a lack of communication which was a refreshing change from other books out there.

I suspect the author has experienced strife in real life to be able to write that so well, but maybe the romantic side is just the author’s daydreams and wanting to give readers who may connect with the tough storylines hope in their own life. Still worth a listen, even though you will feel heartbreakingly sad at times.

Just WOWWW!!!

“You’re the music in a mute world, and my heart beats because you’re here.”

5+ “You’re the music” stars!! Hands down my favourite Brittainy Cherry book to date!!! Ms. Cherry really pulled out the big guns with this story - part one was absolutely gut wrenching to read - I had to stop listening to my audiobook at one point as it was too much for my heart to take...but then I put my big girl pants on and soldiered on because I knew that the HEA would be worth all the heartache.

I fell in love with Jasmine and Elliott - I loved that it was them against the rest of the world for the most part. I loved the relationships they had with their family and friends. I enjoyed watching their relationship flourish and grow as teenagers, and then rekindle as adults.

I cried, I swooned and I laughed throughout this story. You will need tissues but the ride that Ms. Cherry takes us on was well worth the years!!
