Publisher's Summary

Eliza Smith has never been the one to seek a relationship. She's never dated a guy in her life, never even hugged a man (outside of her father/manager of the hot and popular rock band, FireNine) but when she decides to spend her summer on tour with FireNine, it all changes. Eliza really gets to meet Gage Grendel - her former crush from high school and the lead singer of FireNine - and witness sides to him to which she'll begin to truly despise. She'll ignore him, she'll dislike his ways, she'll do anything to try and stay away from him until Gage finally gets her to slip up and give in. She agrees on a casual fling with Gage, but soon they'll both see how the fling will blur into something they can't control, and when it's finally time for Eliza to go and accomplish her own dreams, she'll know there's more she took from Gage than she ever thought possible.

Was she ill?

I enjoyed the story. It kept me going. I love the connection between the characters. The one thing I didn't like was that the narrator sounded like she was sick with a stuffy nose. I did get use to it after awhile but it was still irritating to begin with.

LOVED IT!! Now on to audio book #2

I really enjoyed this story and bravo to the narrator. I don't know how many times I have listened to audio books where there are steamy scenes but the narration makes it come across as cheesy. I have honestly found myself steering clear of audio books where I know there will be allot of erotic scenes because they just never come across good due to narration, I find I enjoy them better if I read the book because the story doesn't get ruined by the voice playing out the scene. This was probably one of only a few audio books where I can honestly say I loved everything about it. Anxious to start audio #2 to see how this story plays out.

Loved this Rocker book - Yummy !!

Any additional comments?

When I first started this book, I was excited because I love stories about wild rock-stars that fall in love. This one hooked me in from the beginning, I instantly loved the chemistry between Eliza and Gage. I was addicted to the sexual tension between these two. They become involved and are soon smoking up the sheets. Hot stuff !<br/><br/>Eliza has had a tough childhood, if you can even call it a childhood. Her mother never cared about her, and let her get physically abused, but not in the sexual sense. Eliza isolated herself, not letting anyone in. She wanted normal, and to feel safe. She finally moved in with her homosexual father Ben, who happens to be the manager of FireNine, a rock-band. Ben tries to get her to come out of her shell. He invites her on to go on tour with them before heading to school. She reluctantly agrees, even though she doesn't want to be near Gage. A guy she has had a crush on for the longest time. Now, he seems to be interested in her. She tries not to fall for him. He insists on pursuing her. <br/><br/>Gage is the lead singer, guitarist and lyric writer from FireNine. He has also had a troubled upbringing, one he tries to hide from everyone. He covers up his pain in music, booze, and women. That is the only thing the numbs he feelings. Then he meets Eliza, his manager's daughter and he instantly wants to know her. She is different from any other girl. She makes him feel again. He relentlessly tries to have her, no matter how many times she pushes him away to just be friends. He knows he isn't good enough for her but the attraction is to strong - he falls in love :) <br/><br/>Veronica Meunch does an excellent job narrating. She bought this book to life :)

A DNF FOR ME 5 HOURS INTO IT! WHAT A WASTE!

The male lead, Gage Grendel is a douche bag, scum-bucket, and A-hole, and I think maybe that's why I didn't enjoy this book so much. Eliza Smith, is sweet girl who is a virgin with a traumatic childhood of abuse she experienced in her mother and step-father's home. She's 21 years old and now living with her father, the manager of the Fire Nine band. I liked her dad, but I questioned his wisdom for his inexperienced, lost daughter to pressure her to come along on a tour with a bunch of man-whore, rockers, with booze & women. How would that be helpful for her, aside from infiltrating her life with stress and pressures with the wrong type of guys?

Well, due to all of the favorable reviews I kept waiting for things to get better, but at 5 hours, well the relationship between lead rock star singer Gage and Eliza was just terrible--Too angsty for my taste. I just can't get my head around a male lead who pressures the virgin-female lead to be with him, yet delivers on a constant flow of double messages. He whored around in front of her with his "girlfriend" and tons of random girls, yet wanted Eliza to be with him? What the????? My feeling on the matter was that he was emotionally abusive to her. And, well from the reviews of the book 2, the womanizing will still be an issue…sorry, I'm out! Too bad, because it seemed like it could have been a really great story.

The narrator was good, too bad this was such an emotionally nauseating listen.

It pulls you in!

If you could sum up Who He Is in three words, what would they be?

Stubborn, a jerk, and sensitive

What other book might you compare Who He Is to and why?

Rock with me but it was written much much better

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

She was great with the different characters. I had to get use to the sound like she had a stuffy nose.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

So conflicted!

I totally like the story.... BUT.... I totally was bored throughout it...

The beginning was exciting and interesting... then meeting the band was interesting too...but the story started to drag with all the angsty parts...

Don't misunderstand... the story had all the hot smexyness one would think to this story... Yes it was very very smexy...at times... it is the times the story wasn't about the smexyness...in those parts... I was rather bored...just wish the story would move on...

THEN the ending...WT...F? I was so upset... So now I am just conflicted... Great, Great Story...but boring in parts and hated the ending... So there you go... listen at your own angsty risk!

Narration was ok...

Good Sale... haven't decided if I spent my credit wisely or not...because again... I am conflicted.. I liked it...but I didn't!

Good Romance Drama!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Who He Is to be better than the print version?

I always prefer audio.

What did you like best about this story?

The story line was inviting. I didn't think I would like band drama and typically I don't; however, I like this book. The best part of the story is how a perceived bad boy really is a good guy with a horrible childhood. I know, a lot of books have the same story-line but, this one is creatively different and heart tugging.

Which scene was your favorite?

The best scene was the ending scene when Eliza and Gage had to separate. Oh, a tear jerker for sure.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely!!!

Any additional comments?

Good book! Looking forward to the next one....

This one really surprised me! Just pulled me in!

I am so glad I decided to get this book. At first, I wasn't sure and even after a few chapters I still wasn't. Don't know when I got pulled into the story, but, it happened. Great job to the Narrator, Veronica Meunch. She really did the story justice. Can't wait to hear the second book. Who knew? I really like this series.

Disappointed and sad love story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes this was a book worth listening it but very disappointed that it dragged on so long before Gage and Liza hooked up. Plus they should've let the end up together in the end. Because of this I doubt that I will read the next book in this series.

If you’ve listened to books by S. Q. Williams before, how does this one compare?

Not listened to another. Books by sq Williams.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Very Mundane narrator, not enough soul or spice in the reading. It makes the book drag and it doesn't pull you in like other romance stories do.

Was Who He Is worth the listening time?

Yes this was a book worth listening it but very disappointed that it dragged on so long before Gage and Liza hooked up. Plus they should've let the end up together in the end. Because of this I doubt that I will read the next book in this series.

Annoying female

What disappointed you about Who He Is?

The most annoying female main character ever, weak willed, stupid. I couldn't believe the story at all! What father dresses their daughter like a whore, throws them towards guys. It was just appalling! What woman goes with a man who has sex in a toilet with another woman, who treat woman so badly?

What will your next listen be?

something completely different!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Narrator was good!

What character would you cut from Who He Is?

The main character, she was just so annoying!

Any additional comments?

I couldn't finish the book it was just too annoying!
