Publisher's summary

Eva and Rafe's story continues in this emotional, angsty, rockstar romance from the best-selling author of The Rixon Raiders series.

Eighteen-year-old Eva Walker knew going on tour with Black Hearts Still Beat would be complicated.

She didn’t expect to find herself torn between two brothers.

One wants her but he walked away before.

The other needs her but she doesn’t understand why.

It’s only time before the truth comes out, and when it does, nothing will be the same for Country’s newest sweetheart and the black-hearted boys of Rock.

Rise: The Interlude is the second installment of Eva and Rafe's story. The concluding book Rule: The Finale is coming soon!

great series

Eva is excited, nervous, and anxious before she starts touring with The Black Hearts. Will the dynamic of the band change? Will the fans love her or hate her? Where does that leave her and Rafe? How will they handle being together so much. Oh this story is so emotional with sexual tension,
Oh and the songs and singing in the audible version was great! I can't wait for the next book!
Sarah Puckett and Michael Norman Johnson are outstanding narrators. They did a fantastic performance, telling the story with such emotion. They bring the angst, raw emotion and personality to each character.

Great rockstar romance

Narrated by Sarah Puckett and Michael Norman Johnson, the emotional and angsty continuation of Eva and Rafe's journey unfolds in this rockstar romance by the bestselling author of The Rixon Raiders series. Embarking on tour with Black Hearts Still Beat at the age of eighteen, Eva Walker anticipated complications, but she never foresaw being caught between two brothers. One has a history with her but chose to walk away, while the other relies on her without providing clear reasons. As the inevitable truth looms, the lives of Country's newest sweetheart and the black-hearted boys of Rock are on the brink of irreversible change. Experience the next chapter in Eva and Rafe's story with Rise: The Interlude, the second installment of this gripping tale. Stay tuned for the upcoming conclusion in Rule: The Finale!

I can’t remember when I’ve enjoyed a book so much

The song interludes are amazing. I love it and the love story is great although the secrets they keep from each other don’t seem like they deserve the reaction they get. I only wish this could have been a ménage type thing between her and the brothers.

A Rose Between Two Thorns

Rockstar meets Country

Rise is the continuation of Eva and Rafe’s journey. Eva is asked to join Black Hearts Still Beat’s tour. Rafe acts like he isn’t affected and Levi is loving it. Eva didn’t expect to find herself in the middle of these two brothers. What’s going to happen when she picks one???

The emotions in the series are killing me! Not really, but seriously, this is one of my favorite rockstar series right now. I can’t wait for the next one!!

Sarah & Michael are so perfect for this series! Their voices are just like I would imagine they would be!!

Amazing second installment!

This is the second installment in the Black Hearts Still Beat Series, a Rock Star Romance. Eva's story continues where the first book left off. I loved to follow Eva, Rafe, Levi, and the band on their journey. I love Eva. She is a strong survivor, and a lovely young woman. The two brothers, Rafe and Levi, are both intriguing. This story is emotional, fun, and beautiful. I enjoyed it even more than the first book. The characters are amazing, and the storyline is intriguing and captivating. Sara Puckett and Michael Norman Johnson did a great job with the narration. I loved to listen to the songs along the story! I can't wait to listen to the third and last installment in this amazing Series: Rule: The Final. #AudiobookObsession

Romance Rockstar meets Country!

Sexual tension, excitement and a lot of fun! Didn’t think it was possible but this is better then the first. Eva and Rafe has such an amazing thing going on- once he got over himself and Eva and Levi are so touching. Can’t wait for the next book!

Black Hearts Still Beat

Rise: The Interlude (Black Hearts Still Beat # 2) continues where book one left off in this Country meets Rock. The last few chapters blew me away. The ending is epic and I can't wait for the final book. Brimming with angst, secrets unveiled in tiers, wonderful characters that are compelling with complex personalities. Absolutely loved this audiobook and series. Looking forward to listening to the final book in the series.


Narrators Sarah Puckett, Michael Norman Johnson, absolutely loved the singing portion of the narration by both Sarah and Michael. Sarah Puckett is my favorite female narrator and she was the perfect choice to portray Eva. Her inflection was smooth and flawless.. Michael Norman Johnson is a new narrator for me. I felt that his inflection didn't fit the character Rafe that well. However, his expression did work well. He expressed all the right sentiments in the right places. Overall, I loved the story and the narration.

A highly passionate listen, definitely looking forward to listening to more.

Rise

A perfect beginning that starts pretty close to where the first ends and keeps going non stop until the end. The progression of the friendships and more with the band and “country” grows slowly and yet their bond is so tight towards the end. I’m glad we have a semi happy ending with this book but I really need the next to know what happens. The narration is done really well.
