Publisher's Summary

In the beginning, it was all about the music...until that wasn’t enough.  

Child Prodigy and devoted musician, Ian Taylor, forms a rock band with his three best friends, helping them rocket to stardom and all the spoils that come with it.  

But Ian’s heart is torn between the teachings of his youth and the temptations of music and the stage. When Ian disappears for two years, Buxton Peak falls apart.  

Returning to center stages brings its own challenges, and life as a rock star is not as easy as it once was. The guys have grown up, and the original dynamic of the band is lost in the distractions of substance abuse and women.  

Can they pull their lives, and their music, back together? Can Ian learn forgiveness as he fights to become the man God wants him to be?  

See where it all began....

A good contemporary story

This is a good contemporary story about 4 guys in their teens starting a band and making it big. It’s a good book and is the first in a series.

A Great Prequel!

I was surprised how much I loved this! I have previously read and listened to all of the other Buxton Peak stories. I wasn't expecting to love this story, but I did. it was a great way to"start" the story of Buxton Peak and now I'm going to go back and restart the other ones again to continue the story! the narrator does a great job, too! I highly recommend this audio book.

Religious rockstar

This was my first book of Julie Spencer’s. I enjoyed it. I liked the religious aspect of the book. Ian Taylor struggles with living and working in an environment not suitable for his standards. He takes center stage to observing his friends make poor choices from woman to drugs. And when he decides to put the band on hold for a couple years to serve a mission his band mates don’t support him but don’t leave the band either. There is a hint of a romance with a couple of different girls. He doesn’t find his HEA in this book but there is a whole series to lol forward to after this book. I liked the narrator. I don’t always likes male narrator but I enjoyed his voice. He stumbled on words occasionally would be my only comment.

Steve rocks another Buxton Peak book!

I'm amazed how Steve is able to do all the voices consistently over the entire series! I may be biased when I say that I love this story, but Steve brings it to life in a way I never imagined! I almost wish I'd written more books in the series! Thank you, Steve for joining me on this fantastic adventure! Let's rock! -Julie
