Publisher's Summary

Is it better to burn out or fade away?

Oblivion lead singer Simon Kagan is used to being in the spotlight for his model good looks and his voice, not because of the epic ending to Oblivion's last show on their home turf in California. That unforgettable night rocked Oblivion in more ways than one, and now the journey back seems almost impossible.

The only bright spot is Margo. Margo, the one woman he'd been sure would never be more than a hot ride in the dark. Margo, who would never be his.

Except she is, for now. But taking one dream and trading it for another isn't supposed to hurt this much.

As long as Margo never realizes the man she fell for no longer exists, maybe he won't lose everything that matters due to just one all-consuming night.

GOOD STORY BUT I'M FEELING THE URGE TO SCREAM

And my need to scream is because Simon and Margo's love story won't end with this book, it'll settle in a fairly good place for them - but there's a lot more angst and drama to come.

After the shocking cliffhanger of an ending in the previous book Simon, Margo and the rest of Oblivion are left shattered and shocked at the heartbreaking news about Simon's voice. Margo makes a deal with the Devil (her Mother) and whisks Simon away to her family's retreat on a Caribbean Island - a retreat where Margo tenderly nurses, caringly guides and ultimately tries to helps him recover. But there's a lot of unanswered questions a to whether Simon's voice will ever be the same and a lot of unanswered questions as to where their very passionate relationship is headed.

This had A LOT of steamy sex scenes throughout as these two lovers couldn't keep their hands off each other - however there's a fragility and a certain insecurity to their relationship too. Simon doesn't know what the future holds for him musically and is terrified to find out. So they lock themselves away from prying eyes, from the fans, the paparazzi insanity that now surrounds Simon and all the worried and sympathetic looks from his friends. While Simon and Margo are enjoying the Island and each other... they are growing closer and closer each day. However, even on a private deserted beach, Simon is recognized and a whole new avenue of opportunity opens up to him - which may just be his salvation. Back home Simon makes some life-changing decisions - however, can Simon talk commitment-shy Margo into sharing more than just stolen sexual moments... could she risk it all and move in with the tamed bad boy of Rock.

Worth a credit? Yes, this was a brilliantly narrated dual POV addition to book 3... but that's where I think it should've been put - in book 3 and not dragged out over 3 books. There were some very romantic sweet times between Simon and Margo and copious amounts of hot sex which was enjoyable but I felt it was a bit of a filler to make the story longer instead of continuing the story in book 3. There was all the latest news from the other couples from Oblivion who've found love, 2 births, 1 death and Simon and Margo are in a good place right now. But I felt the ending seemed rushed and there were unanswered questions - and guess what?.... they'll be answered as Simon and Margo's story continues in book 3.7 of the series - so yet another book and yet another credit to spend before we get the much needed HEA for Simon.

Love this series!!!!

Would you listen to Consumed again? Why?

Most definitely! I love Taryn Elliot and Cari Quinn's books. They're amazing writing combined with Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross' ability to bring the story to life is absolute perfection.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Consumed?

I love the part where Simon tells Margo he loves her.

What about Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ’s performance did you like?

Kai and Wen's narrations are the best I have ever listened to. They convey so much emotion it's hard not to get pulled into the story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, once I got started it was hard to put down.

Any additional comments?

I am so in love with this series. Every book that's released is better than the last. I cannot wait wait until the next one is released. Simon has definitely given Gray, who is my favorite in the band, a run for his money. Any book in this series is definitely an auto buy for me.

Consumed by Music Again

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Every audiobook in the Lost in Oblivion series is wonderful. They're well-written, addicting, and have the best narration team.

Who was your favorite character and why?

That's a tough choice because I love both Margo and Simon, but I've followed Simon through so many books that it's finally good to see him get his HEA.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when Margo rehearsed for the L.A. Philharmonic and Simon got his love of music back.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Get lost in oblivion and you'll be consumed.

Any additional comments?

Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross really bring the characters to life.

I want to be Consumed in Oblivion

Any additional comments?

Consumed picks up where Destroyed left off. I really don't want to give too much away because it'll spoil Destroyed if I talk about this one.

So, things you need to know:

Simon is in love with Margot. Which we knew in the beginning, but it takes him a long time to figure it out.
Margot is in love with Simon. Obvs. He brings out a side of her she didn't know existed.
Simon and Margot have some seriously hot as Hades sex. Hot. All over the place. Whenever they want. They chemistry they share on stage bleeds into the bedroom--kitchen, hallway, stairwell, wherever.

You want to read this book. Or listen. I listened. Kai and Wen are fantastic. Simon and Margot are fantastic.

Read it. Enjoy it. Buy the next book.

WOW WOW WOW

This was the perfect answer to where Destroyed left off. What a beautiful way for two people to learn more about each other than through silence and body language. Well written and just as well narrated. I was skeptical of the male narrator because I didn't really like him in Destroyed, but he absolutely worked for this followup novella.
I am a huge fan of this series and can't wait to start the nextbook.
I recommend this series to anyone who wants a love story that's gritty and not always pretty.

Great Book

Where does Consumed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is definitely one of the best I've listened to.

What about Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ’s performance did you like?

I loved everything about their performance.

Any additional comments?

Consumed by Taryn Elliot and Cari Quinn was another great book in the series. Simon's life completely changes after a horrible ending to their last show. Simon has Margo to help make sure that he rests his voice and takes care of himself. I loved reading more of Margo and Simon's story. This is a must read series.
