Publisher's Summary

An emotional, angsty, suspenseful, second chance romance from the USA Today best-selling author of Inseparable and When Forever Changes.

Let him who is without sin cast the first stone...

I’m the second-most hated person in Amber Springs.

First place honors go to my twin, Ethan; however, hate isn’t a strong enough word to convey how people feel about him.

Not that I blame anyone - some days, I hate him too. Mostly, I’m just lost and afraid, drowning in a sea of betrayal and guilt, wondering how this happened right under my nose.

There’s no choice but to leave. To move clear across the country in a last-ditch attempt to start over.

Transferring to a new school midway through senior year is hellish for most people. For me, it’s a welcome relief - until someone discovers our secret and now everyone knows.

The pointing, whispering, and scathing looks follow me around again, and I’m back to square one. Except, this time, I’m not alone.

Axel, Skeet, and Heath took me under their wing from the minute I arrived here. I’ve no idea why three of the hottest guys in town took any interest in me or why they continue to have my back, but I’m so grateful to have them in my corner.

Because, right now, they’re the only reason I’m not following my brother into an early grave.

This is an upper YA/NA stand-alone #whychoose contemporary romance. Due to sensitive content and possible triggers, this audiobook is recommended to listeners aged 18 and older. Please refer to the note at the start of the audiobook. This is a full length novel.

Reverse harem

Flock review. I enjoy Siobhan Davis writing and all the books I have read so far I have enjoyed them immensely, this one was no exception, although I got the audiobook this time. This is a reverse harem story with a storyline that made it perfect. The characters are amazing and the relationship and development between them was very well done. The emotional part of the story was definitely on the high roller-coaster, it was deep and definitely made me hear it in record time, I just couldn't stop. Narrators Sarah Puckett and Paul Stefano did a fantastic job portraying their characters, the editing was very well done, definitely would recommend you get the audiobook.

Outstanding Story & Narration🎧 Profoundly Gripping

Wow, this is a powerful story, it grabbed my attention immediately and not only captivated my attention the entire book but pulled on my heartstrings too. Siobhan Davis is a gifted author and a master at creating stories that are multi-layered with complex characters and storylines that are realistic. To keep it spoiler free I will not say much about the story other than it was brilliantly plotted, just enough info was held back and revealed at perfect times, making you wonder what exactly happened in Amber Springs. This is a YA/NA reverse harem romance and I adored all four characters, Blaire a new comer to town starting HS at the start of the second term of the year. Good friends Axel, Heath and Skeet took liking to her and they took her under their wing. This did not go over well with the mean girls who then started to stir things up for Blaire. But she stuck with the guys and did not bow down to the bullies. I admired her strength and determination. The friendship with the guys moves to another level and but when the thing she is trying to get away from comes back into her life it all goes down hill for her. I admired the guys for wanting to stick by her side but she she feared her toxicity would ruin them. I loved how this book was broken down into two parts, the before and the after, which is the future and a second chance at life. Siobhan Davis thank you for the emotional rollercoaster ride and the amazing story.

🎧📚🎧 And for the wonderful narration, Ms. Davis cast the perfect narrators to bring her characters and their story to life. Sarah Puckett and Paul Stefano did an awesome job portraying the characters, humanizing them, giving each their own distinct voice which made it easy to follow along and tell who was who. Sarah Puckett took Blaire role and made it her own, she sounded just as I pictured her to sound, she was awesome performing the roles of the other characters too. It was same for Paul Stefano, he grasped the persona of each of his characters and played the roles with perfection. You can hear how much heart they put into their work as they capture the characters emotions and project them into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for the fantastic listen🎧

Surviving Amber Springs

Surviving Amber Springs by Siobhan Davis

Wow Such an emotional book

There was so much emotional angst in this book. My heart was on such a roller coaster ride throughout the audiobook.

It dealt with so many situations that aren’t dealt with in a fictional book yet written so realistically that I felt everything. I’m still dealing with all of the emotions that this book created. Amazing writing from Siobhan, she really pulls out all of reactions from all of the various people who go through and deal with following a horrific situation, and provides us with a peek into what it must be like to be related to someone who committed a crime. Blaire and her parents were forced to leave behind their home and memories are buried following that situation. It’s all in the hopes of getting back to a semblance of a normal life.

Blaire tries to ease into her new school and meets three popular gorgeous guys who take her under their wings. But can Axel, Skeet and Heath provide protection from a past they aren’t privy to?

The horror that Blaire goes through is more than any one should endure yet she tries not to breakdown. I can’t believe how much is dealt with in this audiobook. So much loss, so much hate and so many people ready to sacrifice a person who isn’t responsible. And we see how multi functional marriages work in the real world. We get to see forgiveness and second chances. Wow the feelings invoked by this story were many and have left me reflecting what would I do if this were to happen to me. Real life situations that are happening and yet we carry on not easily acknowledging what about the people left behind.

The narration was superb. Sarah Puckett pulls all of the emotions that Blaire has so well that I felt it all while listening. Paul Stefano is new to me, he has a distinct voice for each of the boys who really love Blaire with all their heart and he displays all of the emotions that they go through.

This a really compelling story that will leave you thinking about the subject matter for days maybe weeks afterwards.

Please be aware that it will be a trigger for people who have gone through gun violence and or rape, do not read/listen to this book if that is an issue for you.

Surviving Amber Springs

Wow what a tragically beautiful story. This book definitely may have trigger warnings for some. This book shows the emotions and strength Blair had to work through to truly survive Amber Springs. When Blair stumbled into the path of three amazing guys, she started her journey to recovery from her past trauma. Axel, Skeet, and Heath showed Blair what it means to be loved. This is a contemporary RH. Sarah Puckett did an amazing job capturing the tragedy Blair endured. Paul did great in his cameos as well.

One of my all time favorite books!

I’ve literally read surviving amber springs atleast 6 times since it came out! Now i can listen to it just as many times too

This book had me hooked from the beginning! The amount of pain Blaire went through! I loved the fact on how siobhan wrote on the other side of gun violence because literally no one ever thinks about that person’s family and what they go through but many people do judge harshly! I loved every minute of this book and i still do whenever I’m in a book funk and don’t know what to read i always go back and read this! I seriously wish i had a Axel, heath and skeet in my life too lol
Definitely 5 freaking stars all the way!

Heartbreaking

Blair and what she went through and losing her twin brother her other half is a strong character. Yes at points in the book she seems week but the things that happen to her would drive anyone to do what she does. Heath, Skeet, and Axel meet Blair and they all have a instant connection they all want her and are willing to share. I cried a lot listening to this book this book is one of Siobhan Davis’s best books.

Emotional and Amazing!

So I finished reading this book last week but I wanted to wait to do my review because I wanted to get it right. This book was an emotional journey or epic proportions. At times this book completely destroyed me. Blaire has got to be on of the strongest heroines that I have ever read. To live through and survive the things that she did is nothing short of remarkable. She is also human and does have some weaker moments. Something happens with Blair's twin brother in the beginning of the book that changes the whole family's lives. They have to move away from Amber Springs and start a whole new life. Blaire meets Axel, Heath & Skeet. All three boys change her life in their individual way. They form a strong bond and for a little while life got better. The past comes back with a vengeance and one again Blair's life is uprooted. I will say this does have a HEA but h does suffer a lot in this book. It does contain abuse & heavy bullying. Be prepared to ugly cry while reading this book at times. This is a stand alone so everything is explained at the end. This is a very original storyline and I haven't read another book quite like this. Sarah & Paul do an amazing job with the narration. This is a duel narration but Sarah is more prominent voice. Siobhan destroyed me with this book in the best way. I love all her books. #PinkFlamingoProductions #VIPFlock

Angsty. Emotional and So Many Feels.....

WOW!!! I went into this book/audio completely blind, and was blown away. Having no idea what the book was about or where it was going to lead greatly enhanced the experience and kept me on my toes. Surviving Amber Springs is emotional, angsty, steamy and full of emotionally-laden topics. I went through so many emotions listening to this thought-provoking story of trauma and loss, which fortunately also brought about healing over time for Blaire, but not before a lot of turmoil. I loved her relationships with Axel, Skeet and Heath, and while RH books aren't at the top of my list of favorites, there was something inherently beautiful in her relationships with each of the guys and how much they loved and protected her. I think the author did an amazing job with the plot of this story and with these characters. I was thoroughly invested from start to finish. I would highly highly recommend this book/audio but be aware of the sensitve content/triggers.

Sarah Puckett did a phenomenal job as Blaire. She does an amazing job evoking all the emotions and feels through her narration and has quickly become one of my favorite narrators. #PinkFlamingoProductions #TheFlock

Brilliant plot heavy reverse harem.

This was an outstanding audiobook. This plot heavy, reverse harem was so good. While this is a dark story, the romance is not dark. I truly couldn't fault Surviving Amber Springs. The pace was fast, there was just the right amount of loving that was hot but didn't overshadow the plot.
I have been a huge fan of Siobhan Davis for years now and have always been impressed, but I can honestly say that for me this is her best standalone. The emotions run high throughout and it is a journey. Blaire is strong on the outside but holds a lot of pain on the inside. She really is the focus of this story with the three males also having their tales told.
I was wowed by the fantastic narration by Sarah Puckett and Paul Stefano. Sarah Puckett is such a powerhouse of a narrator. I have listened to many books narrated by this hugely talented lady and every time her voice acting has been excellent.
Paul Stefano was a new narrator to me and he impressed me beyond words. I look forward to listening to more from this skilled narrator.
Both narrators voices complimented each other and they acted the emotions and atmosphere to a very high standard. The characters felt individual and recognisable.

Very Well Done.

I received this book per my request via an Audiobook Obsession promo code and this is my voluntary review.

This was a first for me. I've read Siobhan Davis before (Finding Kyler) This was my first Reverse Harem Book.. I was never sure that it was the genre for me, as I couldnt visualize how it could work but this was skillfully done. Skeets family created a great backstory into HOW a scenario like that could be seen as End Goals by a character and his group of friends.

The story unravels in a very organic way, and the more you learn about WHY Ethan did what he did, and the road to recovery that Blaire has had to go through, the more you fully sink into this story and begin to heal along with her and fall in love with the three guys who decide to become her everything. It was a powerful roller coaster of the FEELS. There was a lot of 'Heroes' in this book but to me the ultimate hero was Ethan and the lengths he went to for his twin sister.

Told in dual POV, but Sarah Puckett knocked this performance out of the park and it's one of my favorites that she has narrated.

An Emotional Tale

Surviving Amber Springs is a heart-breaking, emotional, suspenseful tale that will give you all the feels. The story was unlike anything I've read and dealt with some difficult subjects and I thought the author handled the story in a sensitive manner. The novel was also steamy, sweet and drama filled and had me hooked until the end. I loved the characters, they had great banter from the start and I loved seeing the dynamics of their polyamorous relationship evolve. This novel focused on Blaire and showcased her strength and courage surviving what she did. This was a story of trauma and loss and survival and I would recommend it.
The audiobook as narrated by Sarah Puckett and Paul Stefano. They did an excellent job and brought the story to life, giving each character their own voice. It was a pleasure listening to them narrate this novel.

Tormented

Surviving Amber Springs by Siobhan Davis is an incredible listen. The main character of Blaire is tormented in this book, yet she has resolve to overcome troubles. I was immediately pulled into this book by the incredible narration that has so many emotions. I was not expecting the reverse harem in this book, but it worked perfectly. This book is so much more than reverse harem with its added suspense. Sarah Puckett and Paul Stefano both brought the characters to life. Audiobook Obsession, The Flock and Pink Flamingo Productions thank you for recommending this listen. It was so well done!

Love!

This story is so real and tragic but I love it. The author does an amazing job of creating the characters that you feel for them and instantly root for them. There are triggers in this so be warned but you won’t be disappointed. I love the narrator, she’s one of my favorites and again did an amazing job.

There are triggers so be warned.

There are so many tragedies that happen in this book. Blair’s whole world is torn apart and shattered not once but twice. She is such a strong heroine in many ways other heroines can never be.

I really love the way Siobhan wrote the hero’s. I am so happy they weren’t bullies too. Blair really needed the gentleness and understanding that Axel, Skeet, and Heath brought into her life. They go through some hard bumps in the road, but in the end, they get their happily ever after and it’s perfect for them!

Sarah & Paul both did fantastic jobs narrating!

Wow!

It's hard to say much about this book without giving away any spoilers so I will just say that there are several possible triggers for some people so it's definitely not a book for everyone. For everyone else, though, it is a book that I highly recommend. It is powerful, emotional, heartbreaking and tragic, yet it shows the courage and strength of Blaire and how she was able to survive what she did and come out on the other side. This story will stay with you long after the story is over.

Sarah Puckett is an amazing performer and always does a wonderful job bringing each character to life. Paul Stefano is a new-to-me narrator but he did very well also.

A Must Read/Listen

Surviving Amber Springs by Siobhan Davis is a contemporary romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Sarah Puckett and Paul Stefano.

The book comes with a warning “Due to sensitive content and possible triggers, this audiobook is recommended to listeners aged 18 and older. Please refer to the note at the start of the audiobook.”

This is the second book of Siobhan’s that I have read and it definitely won’t be my last. This book took me on an emotional roller coaster. Siobhan did an amazing job making me fell all the emotions that Blaire was going through. I loved the relationship that bloomed between Blaire, Axel, Skeet, and Heath.

Sarah and Paul did an amazing job on the narration. They both really know how to bring a story to life. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would highly recommend this book if you love contemporary romance, psychological thrillers, romantic suspense.

Surviving Amber Springs

Oh man, is this a hard book to listen to. Such heartbreak and pain that I felt overwhelmed with emotion at parts and yet I couldn’t stop until I could finally find a happy ending in the end. I think this may be the best book I’ve read this year as far as making me feel everything. The narration was perfect.

Twists & Turns to Keep you on the Edge of Your Seat

Absolutely amazing storyline filled with twists & turns to keep you on the edge of your seat. Would love to have a follow up novel to see where life takes all of the main characters. Only negative for me was the 2nd narration voice as I felt it disrupted the flow of the story & it became difficult to recognise characters due to a different voice.
