Publisher's Summary

When Grant Hardy, Meltdown's lead singer, falls off the stage in the middle of a concert while under the influence, his record label has no choice but to step in and take control.

The solution is simple.

Send Grant to rehab and avoid a public relations nightmare by covering it up as a bad case of the flu. When the rehab facility's recommendation for extended treatment starts to affect the label's bottom line, they are forced to find an alternative solution - hire an in-house counselor for the duration of the tour.

There's just one problem. Grant Hardy isn't an addict.

Contains mature themes.

Torn legaments in American female biathlon LOL

As a Scandinavian with biathlon as one of our national winter sports, torn ligaments in biathlon is sooo far fetched. Had she shot herself in the foot it would have been more believable. I love Susan Dunklee (the best American female in biathlon), but to say that she skies so fast cross country that she's in danger of falling so hard that she tears something is just laughable. Made the story so much less realistic.

I wish I liked it more

The concept and plot twist we're good, the side characters were interesting, and the main characters were ok. The thing that irritated me was just...ok you're having sex again, cool. But all these stressful situations...nah let's still bone. It's a love at first sight romance which I never understand, and the guy was wayyy too pushy. Then the narrators. LB was great, I like the timber (?) of her voice and she does other characters really well. AC on the other hand makes this HORRIBLE high-pitch whiney voice for women and I couldn't take it. I almost gave up like 6 times.

Female voicing by male narrorator is bad

I loved the story, but I'm not sure I can listen to the rest of the series because of the narroration. Every female character voiced by the male narrorator sounds like a mocking child whiney voice. the females either sound like children or old ladies.

GOOD STORY BUT TERRIBLE NARRATION

I liked the book but the Narrators were terrible. The voices they gave the characters were so bad I almost stopped reading. Only reason I finished was I wanted to know how it ended. And the next book in the series has the same Narrators.

well written story

this story was great! the characters are developed well. it keeps you on your Edge when you start to feel like you know what's going on there's a Twist . it's not as hot and bothered as many other books but it's still a great story. can't wait to hear the next one!

Couldn't put it down

This story was not only a romance, it also had a mystery to solve. Held my attention from beginning to end. The author gave us a Class A story. I got confused a little bit with all the characters, however, the main characters, Grant and Mallory, were excellently developed in this intriguing story. The narrators were great as well and brought this story to life. Looking forward to more in this series.

Loved the story, hate the male voice

I have read the book and loved it. Bought the Audible to listen in the car. The female reader was good. The male voice was fine while portraying male characters, but my God, he was annoying and insulting while voicing the female characters. It would have been better if he just read it in his normal voice. Not sure if I can continue listening it is so annoying, especially as I like the story and characters so much.

great story

this is the 1st I've read of this author and loved the story but omg the male narrator....I nearly didn't finish the book. I didn't like the voice he portrayed in another series and I stopped reading it and I'm doing the same here.. the hero sounded so hyped your think he was on drugs and it went against the authors character of grant. his female voices made the woman sound like dumb twits. he's absolutely terrible and ruined a good story. Lyn was great and Alexander should have listened to her voice and tried to match it....I will not give him a 3rd chance....any narration by him is off limits for me.
