Publisher's Summary

I had a simple life. I worked two jobs, made ends meet, and hung out with my mom and twin brother. The other part of my life was about avoiding him, but when SWAT raided my boyfriend's home, that was the last straw. The boyfriend got tossed, and to help me keep busy, my brother talked me into joining their old band again. I have to be honest, though; it wasn't a hard sell.

Playing drums was in my blood. I used to be addicted, and that craving hadn't been satisfied in three long years. The only problem was their lead singer. The drums might not have been the only thing I was addicted to. I think I was still addicted to him, too.

Contains mature themes.

Not my favorite

I love Tijan, this book just didn't hook me. Not sure why. It didn't stink, but I won't be re-reading or re-listening to this one again.

Hope There's More!!

I am a little confused about why she went to the one because she blamed herself. Also, what happened to the custody case of that one? This is the first story that I'm a little disappointed in, but I would love to hear &/or read more about the other band members, past and present, and other characters who are mentioned. I know I have read some as I'm making my way through all of Tijan's amazing audio & ebooks now! I love how her characters feel real!

Can't Get Enough

Would you consider the audio edition of Sustain to be better than the print version?

I have always loved audio books and love how they really take the book to another level. When you get an awesome performer you will never go wrong!

Have you listened to any of Lidia Dornet and Nelson Hobbs ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this is my first time listening to her.

Any additional comments?

I can't get enough of Tijan's books and am a HUGE fan of her audiobooks. I always read the books first and than listen to them as soon as they come out.

Disappointed!

I'm really disappointed with this book. I absolutely loved the Fallen Crest High series and thought that this book would have been as well thought out and delivered, but this wasn't the case. None of the characters were particularly likeable and they all needed more developing. The plot was patchy and chaotic and seemed like it jumped huge parts leaving you feeling lost.

I'm usually a big fan of Tijan's books, but this one wasn't for me.

On the plus side the male narrator was great and the female was ok.

Another winner from Tijan

Love Tijan, and really enjoyed this book, a solid 5 stars. I loved all the characters and the part they played in the story, they all fit well. Sustain centres around a group of family and friends that start a band, the drummer been a girl, Bri, who has a brother, Braden, a cousin, Emerson and a hot hot boyfriend, Luke. The are all affected by bad parenting and following one particularly bad and heart aching event their relationships are all hanging by a thread. I love the chemistry between Bri and Luke and I was intrigued throughout the book, never knowing what would happen next. Love that they all back each other up throughout some pretty heavy/intense situations. Another great read.
