Publisher's Summary

Clay Maxwell is a smart, quick-witted, sex-driven manwhore with the good looks to match. Plenty of women have shared his bed, but only one has ever been constant: Andrea.

Their rules were simple. When they were together, it was just the two of them. When they were apart, anything was fair game. And it worked. For 10 years. But one of them has changed the game....

Clay must decide if his player ways are worth losing the one girl who has always been there.

JUST FOR THE RECORD, IT'S A GREAT STORY!


My first K. A. Linde story, and I really enjoyed it! I haven't listened to the other audios in the series, but this was a great stand alone. I didn't feel lost or if I was missing any background story. The details provided were enough for me to fully enjoy this story.

Some Spoilers;
I really liked KAL's writing style, it's original, and I loved this story is mainly told from Clay's POV. She did a great job creating a plot around two characters who have an unconventional relationship, and builds lots of drama and angst around their rocky journey to their HEA. I liked how Clay's character got a wake call when Andrea ends their relationship. She wanted more, and he was to scared to be in an exclusive committed relationship. He didn't know what he had until it was gone, but he was determine to prove he could be the man Andrea wanted and needed. Their HEA was all the sweeter after everything these two went through.

Joe Arden delivered a stellar performance! I loved how he portrayed Clay! I enjoyed Andi Arndt's performance as well, even if we had to wait till the end to hear her.

Struck From the Record was a fun story, with a great mix of drama, angst, lots of steamy chemistry, and hot sex scenes. I will be keeping my eye out for more stories by K.A. Linde. Another fantastic KU/whispersync deal!

I Really Wanted to Love this Book, BUT I Didn't Even Like It

I really wanted to love this book because I loved, loved, loved the first 3 books on this series but I didn't like this book.

I think it's because I didn't like the heroine when she was introduced in the first 3 books and this book didn't really do much of anything to redeem her character. I found myself hoping the hero would find love with anyone but her. I was disappointed.

But it was good to catch up with some of the other characters like Liz and Brady.

Good read

This book was not as good as the previous ones. It was still a decent read. Clay and Andrea's story was a little boring to me however it was interesting to have the characters from the previous book in this one. The ending was great and probably the best part.

KAL - THE QUEEN OF ANGST, ROCKY RIDES & EPIC HEA's

Clay Maxwell thought he had it so good... he was handsome, charismatic, sexy, successful and a renowned Batchelor Playboy plus he had a 'friends with benefits' relationship with a female friend he'd known forever. He'd known Andrea since they were young and now they liked to play a very different game.... sex with no strings, no expectations and no rules. He thought things between them were going great but one night Andrea called then changed the rules of their game which had some disastrous shocking consequences - both physically painful ones and mentally challenging ones too. The shock changed Andrea.... suddenly she wanted more - but they weren't just on different pages... they were reading quite different books altogether and manwhore Clay Maxwell didn't want to change a thing. However, his life without Andrea in it, turned out to be a cold and lonely place.

Okay he was a real dick to begin with but Clay's slow realizations and subsequent character development was a pleasure to witness as he transformed himself into someone he never thought he'd be... a loving husband. There was a lot of angst, heartache, passion and sex along the way but these two loveable characters fell in love with each other when they were still kids but never ever realized it. It took quite a few shocks, soul-searching, misunderstandings, touching scenes and hurdles to overcome before they would both finally get on the same page.... and what they had at the end of the book was so worth all their struggles.

Worth a credit? Yes, another well written enjoyable and addictive listen from K.A. Linde, told from Clay's POV until the Epilogue, good secondary cast - including updates of Liz and Brady's relationship. Andrea was a strong independent heroine who knew what she wanted and wouldn't settle and Clay was a complex hero who lived his life as the second best son - and they were both vulnerable. K.A.L. put a lot of emotional struggles into this book but there was also humor, sizzles and romance too. Easily a stand alone listen and a great addition to the Record series.

Author should increase her vocabulary

Interesting but way too many times the word”fuck” is used. Boring. Also the emphasis on the extreme use of alcohol as a way of coping is too much for Me. Not as good as the first book.

Bravo 👏

This is my first K.A. Lindt book. I must say, it’s pretty good. More emotional than comedic. I’m a bit confused as to why Andi Arndt only has 1 chapter towards the end to narrate...🤷🏻‍♀️ All other chapters were read by Joe Arden. Arden did great as usual, but there a handful of times where I couldn’t tell which of the male characters he’s voicing because his tone stayed the same. Context clues helped.

I liked hearing a love story from the guy’s POV because almost all romance books have only the girl’s POV. I also liked how their face-to-face drama showed both sides. Both Andrea and Clay were at fault for their issues and they worked it out together.

Even though Clay’s family is a well-known political family, Linde showed a glimpse of the family life for people like them. I believe we see politicians as petty and under-handed, hard working and empathetic, etc., but we don’t know how they are with their family members. Media coverage should only be on the individuals involved in politics, not the innocent family members who feel like they have to live up to expectations that they didn’t ask for.

The drama was very heartfelt. When it was sad, it was very sad. When it was happy, it was so achingly adorable. Linde did add some comedic parts, but not LOL status, just cheeky lol

Good job overall!

Didn't really finish it 😒

Ok so this story started off great but I kinda got off track in the middle. I skipped around a little bit but did finish it. Not anything to brag about. Of course the narration was perfect, story not so much..

You only get Andi Arndt for 1 chapter

It's ok, It would have been better if Andi Arndt was reading it for more than just 1 chapter. Joe Arden is pretty good but nowhere near as good as if the 2 of them would have been reading the whole book together.
