Publisher's Summary

Skye Summers beat the odds. Professionally her life's a success - every day, she cures the sick and heals the wounded. Personally? Her life couldn't be more of a mess. She's tired of putting up with arrogant men who think nothing of ripping out her heart. She's taking a break. No more dating. No more relationships. No more men. 

Ash Dean has it all: fame, fortune, and the adoration of screaming fans. But the constant parties and an endless string of one-night stands are taking their toll. He's tired of superficial women who care only about sleeping with a rock star. He's taking a break. No more flings. No more empty hook ups. He's looking for something real. 

When sparks ignite between him and a sassy doctor during a chance encounter, he's intrigued. When she has no idea who he is, he's fascinated. When she runs after a little innocent flirting, he's determined to pursue. He's arrogant enough to go after what he wants, and something tells him she might be worth the chase.

prepare to be shredded and put back together

Ellie Masters delivers a story that had me running the gamut of emotions. I laughed, was brought to tears, and had to control a near overwhelming rage and the need to cause severe bodily injury. Skye's traumatic childhood and resulting issues as an adult are not easy to endure and if you are expecting a fluffy romance I give fair warning this isn't it. However, the dedication of Ash stole my heart and had me painting him on a white horse with a hot as hell rocker attitude. This is a must for a personal library. Amanda Stribling was spectacular!

Diggin' the rockin' romance!

So I was a bit skeptical going into this audiobook. I had listened to Amanda Stribling on another book and, well… it wasn’t good. I didn’t even review the book. However, I was pleasantly surprised with Heart’s Insanity. The narration was strong and I did not have the same problems as the other book. There were mechanical issues and tones that jumped from low to high in the previous book (not the same author but I don’t want to bring up what book this is). It was not pleasing to the ear. Anyway, this is supposed to be about this book so I’ll get on with it!

I do enjoy a good rocker romance and Ellie Masters seems to really excel at giving us a rocker with heart and soul. I swooned and fell hard for Ash. It isn’t often we get a believable, NICE guy rocker romance. Skye deserves to have it all… sky’s the limit! They both are a tad broken and have had a hard life.

Now, Amanda Stribling was pleasing to listen to. Her voice is sweet and soft. I loved her as Skye. I do wish we had a male narrator but I’m always pulling for dual/duet narration in a book that has both POVs. I really was swept up into Stribling's easy pacing and flow. I felt she did very well with this narration.

Beautiful Story!

This was my first Ellie Masters's book, and won't be my last! Heart's Insanity is the first book in the An Angel Fire Rock Romance Series. This isn't the usual rockstar romance. It's so much more! I love Sky and Ash's story. Sky is such a strong and beautiful character! Her story is heartbreaking. Ash is handsome, and so protective with her, and I love how he wins her confidence. The secondary characters are also great. This is a beautiful story, and I totally recommend it. Now, I can't wait for the next book in the Series, Heart's Desire, and I would love to read Ashes to New, Elsbeth and Forest's story, and the prequel to this Series! Amanda Stribling did a great job with the narration. She has a beautiful voice. #AudiobookObsession

A book that will tear at your heart

This book will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions. No child should ever have to endure the horrific child abuse that Skye and her foster brother, Forest did. As adults they are still trying to deal with the aftereffects. When Ash comes into her life she doesn't recognize him as a famous rock star. Ash is instantly attracted to her especially since she sees him as just a man and not a celebrity. Ash has a compassionate and loving heart. But is it big enough to overcome Skye's demons?

Amanda Stribling does an excellent job of portraying the emotions that the characters are experiencing. I enjoyed her storytelling ability.

I volunteered to receive a copy of this Audible book in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend this Audible book. It is realistic in portraying the challenges that face these characters and draws the reader emotionally into their lives.

Great Read

Heart's Insanity: An Angel Fire Rock Romance was a great book by Ellie Masters. Skye had a terrible upbringing but now is a successful doctor. Unfortunately her life is still a mess. She has been hurt by men and has decided to not have any more relationships. Ash comes stumbling into Skye's life when he's taking a break from his rock star life. I absolutely fell in love with Ashe and Skye as individuals as well as a couple. I loved reading this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

Skye and Ash

This is a good story. It has a deep background to it with a very troubled past. There are some unique characters and secrets and learning how to love.

Ash💘Skye! Amazing Story! Great Audible Listen🎧

Rocker romance books are one of my favorites and Ellie Masters does not disappoint. Her story is well written with interesting storylines that captivated me from start to end. The characters are complex and well developed. I adored Ash, he is not your typical angsty rocker, he is so much more. After struggling with addictions he finds he wants more to life than partying and an endless stream of women. He wants what his parents have a long, loving relationship and he thinks he found the one. Skye grew up in a foster home and has had the worst childhood, a dark and disturbing one. The only good thing to come out of that childhood was her foster brother, Forest. Both suffered atrocities no child should have to go thru, it may have left them broken in their own way but having each got them thru it and bonded them for life. I loved the strength of their relationship and that they are there for each other. Also love the chemistry between Skye and Ash, he is so good for her but can their relationship survive the demons from the past? Can Skye get past her PTSD? Their story sets off a wave of emotions, I knew Spencer’s true colors would shine thru. I also liked how protective Ash’s band members were of him. I am looking forward to the learn more of the other members of Angel Fire, I hope there are plans to put them out on audio. Ellie Masters, thank you for this great, heartfelt story!

I listened to the Audible edition narrated by the talented Amanda Stribling. She is an awesome storyteller and voice performer. She brings the characters to life from the pages to your ears. Thanks for another great & entertaining listen🎧

Loved it!

What a great introduction to the Angel Fire rock group. Skye and Ash are two characters that have gone through some ups and downs and eventually find their way to each other and this is their story. It is well worth the read or listen. The narrator did a fantastic job.

Insanity Song for Blaze and Summer Skye

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Very touching romance that approaches sexual relationships a bit differently. Skye suffers from PTSD from a sexually abusive childhood. She can’t release without crippling memories throwing her into the past. But she is perfectly capable and willing to please her partner. When Blaze, the frontman of the hot-as-hell band Angel Fire, chases Skye down with her forgotten bag, he realizes she has no idea who he is. Feeling refreshingly free to be himself with her, he pushes to spend as much time with her as possible, expecting a healthy dose of sex to be included. Skye plans a 3-day getaway to clear her head after finding her fiancé in bed with another woman and Ash aka Blaze worms his way in for the trip. She agrees with one condition. No sex for three days.
There’s a lot of fun interchange as Skye believes Ash to be a penniless street musician and Ash assumes Skye is probably struggling to pay her med school loans. There’s tension surrounding Skye’s attempts to be free of her fiancé Spencer. There are secrets on both sides but eventually, all come to light, and sexual limitations and patiences are accepted. A fulfilling ending with rich characters, including secondaries in the band members and Skye’s very interesting brother.

Amanda Stribling did an awesome job for all the voices. Just great!

👍🏻 👍🏻 TWO HIGH-HELD THUMBS UP!!!

Just lovely

I really enjoyed listening to this book, but you should be warned that it includes some disturbing content. Two of the main characters were badly abused as children, this comes up several times as well as child prostitution and abuse in general. If you can handle that then this book will not disappoint.

This is not a typical rock star romance where the lead characters fall into bed on page 10, but they do start a relationship very quickly. In this story the connection took front seat as well as dealing with trauma from past experiences. I thought that this created a much more interesting story with complexity and depth.

The writing is really well done, very vivid, it drew me in and held my attention captive. The characters are beautifully constructed, it's clear that a lot of work went into making them realistic.

I really didn't like Skye at first, she's a bit of a doormat for her fiance/ex at the start. It makes sense once her history is revealed so stick with it. I thought about giving up at this point and I'm really glad I didn't.

The narrator did a great job with the character voices, tone and pacing. It was lovely to listen to.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

WOW!!

i have to say I really enjoy reading rock star romances... and this Heart's Insanity did not disappoint. Skye Summers may just be one of my favorite narrators. Ash Dean is just wow. This book just grabbed my attention and just did not let it go. I was rooting for Skye and Ash and I just became so invested in their relationship... I spoke about them like they were real people. The narration by Amanda Stribling was so authentic and just made this listen so great.

Fame and Fortune

Amanda Stribling narrates this story with ease, modulating her voice for each individual character. Amanda provides strength and courage to a woman traumatized by her past while rediscovering herself.

Forest and Skye Summers were foster siblings that beat the odds as kids. Now a successful Dr Skye has put all her energy and emotional baggage into being the best ER Dr she can be. In her personal life, her love life stinks due to the horror she suffered as a kid not to mention the idiot and bully she's supposed to marry.

Ash Dean is the lead front man for the rock band Angel Fire. He's tired of being a money tree for those only wanting to take from him. He meets Skye when she gives him and his band mates a piece of her mind for not having manners and being raised by wolves. No one dared to speak to the guys this way. Who did she think she was...better yet...Ash wants to know who she is.... Skye has no idea who Ash really is and is taken by her refreshing honesty and demands to pay her own way. As the two embark on an unusual courtship, they learn a lot about each other's pasts, and what they both want for the future but are terrified.

As the two of them get to know each other and the fame and fortune that surrounds them, jealousy and outside influences attempt to destroy anything they've barely built together. Both need to learn how to trust, but Skye needs to leave her past behind and love like insanity.

Rockstar Romance

This was a good insta love story, I really love Ash, his personality, the way he is, and more importantly how he behaves with Sky, seriously he is such a nice guy. All of his patience and understanding toward her is simply amazing.
Sky on the other hand, she has a really awful past and so many insecurities.s I understand it's not easy for her being in a relationship, but is kind of annoyed me that she didn't open herself to Ash, and instead of trying to see the best of their situation, she was just so sure their relationship wasn't going to work.

The narrattion by Amanda Stringing was good, she has different voices for her characters and her male voice is quite good.

Adversity wins

They say everyone has a soulmate Ash Dean the lead singer in the rock band Angel Fire found his in a coffee shop, now he has to prove to the extremely broken Skye Summers that heals others, that she can be healed to.
This story is a testimony to how love, patience and understanding can heal a soul and make it whole again.
This is a wonderful story by author Ellie Masters and told beautifully by Amanda Stribling.

Deep Rockstar Romance

This was such a deep rockstar romance with characters that have such a troubled heartwrenching backstory, at times you just want to reach in and hug them. Skye mainly. She is a beautiful character with so much pain, yet she is strong and perseveres, and creates a life to be proud of helping others. Ashe, my word, he is swoon worthy and just completely meant for Skye in every way. I loved the chemistry between these two. There is mystery, intensity, some action, and so much steam, along with severely tearful moments. This is a must read!

This is a great story!

I loved the story of Summer and Ash! I’m a sucker for rock star stories and this one is top notch! Ellie Masters has a knack for bringing characters and their stories to life. I love Ash and how open and honest he is about what he wants and what he is willing to do or not do to have Summer as his own. I hate the pain Summer went through in her past.. and I really hate Spencer!

I do love how they work through everything together!

I Enjoyed this novel

Hearts Insanity was my first Ellie Masters novel and what an introduction. I was hooked from start to finished as the author gave a story I really was not expecting. This is not your typical rockstar romance as there was more going on. This was insta-love at its finest but it was coupled with an underlying back story that will break your heart as the consequences continue to plague the characters to current day.

The characters were flawed but very well developed. I loved Ash and Skye. The rockstar and the doctor, totally different but as fate would have it perfect for each other. These two had so many things going against them on both sides yet you will be drawn to their story and will be rooting for them. Skye's story will break your heart but the level of patience Ash showed her will make you love him so much more. Bean/Forrest was another amazing character who stood out for me in this novel and I really hope he gets his happy ending.

This novel was narrated by Amanda Stribling. She did an amazing job bringing life to these characters. Her voice was soft and clear and it was a pleasure listening to her.

Heart's Insanity was a fantastic story and I greatly enjoyed it. I would highly recommend this page-turner to all lovers of rockstar romances.

Not your usual rockstar book

This book is very edgy and revolves around very sensitive issues. Well done Ellie, not only is this book enjoyable but it has a lot of educational value to it as well. Amanda brings not only the issues to life but the characters who deal with them.

A rockstar and a Dr, loved it!

Sky is a physician with many secrets she is hiding in her past, only her brother knows everything. Then she meets this persistent guy, whom demands to spend time with her. Ash is having a hard time believing that this woman doesn’t recognize him as the famous rockstar, but he wants the normalcy she brings him. They both have secrets and they both fear their secrets will drive the other away. It’s a great story, and the way the author had dealt with Sky’s past is admirable. Amanda did a great job in bringing this story to life.
