Todd O'Malley has been called many things, from filthy mouthed jerk to legendary Rock God. With his outlandish cocky demeanor – tatted up and pierced, compared in looks to Adam Levine – his constant use of the F-bomb, and the seductive gyrations he performs for the ladies on stage, affirm he is a man every woman craves. But there is only one woman who is able to capture his heart, Kyra Edwards.

That chance meeting at a little coffee shop in Evanston began their journey of compromise, pain, dedication and love.

From the night he took her virginity to Todd's past sex-capades and consequences threatening their relationship, will Kyra be able to deal with it? With Todd and his band Avenue touring on the road, can he prove to Kyra that he is a changed man? Can he be faithful and avoid temptation?

Captivating and Beautiful.

What made the experience of listening to Toccata Obbligato - Serenading Kyra (Out of the Box) the most enjoyable?

The way Zachary Liebenstein brought the characters to life.
His portrayal of each character throughout this story is simply amazing.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the fact that it comes across like a real possibility. The realism of how the relationship between Todd and Kyra developed. It was tested over and over again, like real life, with real drama.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Todd sings "Fairytale Man" to Kyra..... this was so emotional on so many levels because it was born from a need to heal, a need to be forgiven and most of all, the need to love and be loved.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I teared up during the entire scene at grandma's house when Todd found her ring, the picture, and how he heard her words.
When Kyra arrived and Todd got down on one knee, I was just as happy as Kyra. And, yes, I shed a few tears too!

Any additional comments?

This is a quick listen, but don't let that fool you. There is so much going on constantly, it's a true emotional and soul deep experience.

Wow, it's even better in audio

OMG! He actually sings her his love song in this audio!

I had already read the book previously, but this was a thousand times better and NO eyestrain! I love this story of mismatched lovers. The language is a bit shocking at first, but he's a rocker.
Fortunately, the more time he spends with his new girlfriend, the tamer he becomes. But nothing is easy between the unlikely couple.

Loved it!

Rockstar and the Innocent

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher"

We have a rockstar who is getting tired of the one night stands, not that that stops him. Lonely and feels abandoned and so he abandons first. In a case of insta love he meets Kyra, a girl finishing up her masters who comes from a wealthy family and really doesn't know who he is.
They meet in a coffee shop and unlike all other girls he has to talk her into going out with him
Obstacles raise, he really is a nice guy and she is stronger than she appears.
The narrator was good sometimes felt he dragged a little bit or just not as much emotion as I may have expected but I like that much better than over the top narration. I would gladly listen to him.
Worth a listen, not the best rockstar story but I always appreciate when the rockstar is a man whore after he met his one true love!

You need this audio, this book & we all need Todd

Any additional comments?

✯ ✯ ✯ ✯ ✯

This was my first time with an audio and all I can say is if all audios are like Jennifer's it won't be my last. The narrator Zach portrayed Todd with such realism. I felt like I was listening to the retelling of a story over coffee with an old friend. Mark's song added an extra bonus I never expected and showed me what makes audios so unique compared to traditional book.

In regards to the book and Jennifer's telling of the story, I can't recommend this book enough. I haven't read the Out of the Box series, but since hearing some of the inner monologue of Todd I definitely will be now. There are so many missing details that I'm certain the series reveals. All in all I believe this book is the perfect accompaniment to the series.

I recommend this audio, this book, and the whole series to one and all. I also encourage everyone to get audio books a try. You won't be disappointed in any way.

Even better than the print version - which I loved

Would you consider the audio edition of Toccata Obbligato - Serenading Kyra (Out of the Box) to be better than the print version?

Zachary Liebesstein not only brings Todd O'Malley to life, he gives him new dimensions.

What did you like best about this story?

Bonus!!! The fabulous song Todd writes, Fairytale Man, is incorporated into the audiobook! It’s a can’t miss attraction!!!

What about Zachary Liebenstein’s performance did you like?

He has a strong range that really sucks me in. If Todd were not read right, he could come off as nothing but a creep. Instead, Liebenstein brings out dimensions of Todd that could easily get lost in the translation.

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed this stand-alone novella from the Out of the Box series. We get just enough Todd to satisfy the desires we all had for more. Todd sucks you into his mind, and heaven help you, he is exactly like you expected. This was a great treat.

Todd FREAKIN O'Malley !!

What did you love best about Toccata Obbligato - Serenading Kyra (Out of the Box)?

I read this book some time back and it was truly wonderful. But listening to it brought it to life and had me laughing. To hear someone actually put words to Todd O' Malley.

What other book might you compare Toccata Obbligato - Serenading Kyra (Out of the Box) to and why?

To be honest many books always compare to each other but not this one. There is not another I have read or listened to yet like this.

What about Zachary Liebenstein’s performance did you like?

This guy sure had his work cut out for him as Todd O'Malley loves the F-Bomb. Zachary did a great job. It was a first for me hearing this narrator

If you could take any character from Toccata Obbligato - Serenading Kyra (Out of the Box) out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Oh gosh I'd take Todd but I would for sure have to wear depends. He is hilarious but always straight to the point.

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed listening to this book very much.

SHORT BUT GOOD STORY

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

I wish I had the background of listening to the Out Of Box series but this is the first I meet Todd and Kyra. For a short story, it was pretty good. I didn't feel the narrator's voice fit the person of Todd. He had a more country feel, IMO. I'm not a fan of the songs in the middle, either. No way was it what I imagined.

One Thumb Up here.

The shortest full story ever

What did you like best about Toccata Obbligato - Serenading Kyra (Out of the Box)? What did you like least?

What I liked best is It was a full story. What I like least is it was a full story crammed into just under 2 hours. I didn't seem like a novella in anyway other then the time.

Would you be willing to try another book from Jennifer Theriot? Why or why not?

Yes. I liked the style and think that had things been elaborated or had it had less going on story wise it would have worked better.

What does Zachary Liebenstein bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I really like his narration. I will definitely check out other books he narrates in the future.

Did Toccata Obbligato - Serenading Kyra (Out of the Box) inspire you to do anything?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

This was the typical bad boy rocker meets inocent girl, has psycho ex problems, messes up a lot, and ends up Winning the girl...but it has no filler, it is essentially a story being told to you in a summary version of events. I still enjoyed it but I prefer a novella to stick to a short plot story. With everything that went on it could have been made a full length book instead. I received this audiobook from audiobook boom for free for my unbiased review.
