Publisher's Summary

Gavin is the perfect rockstar front man - moody, confident, and sexy as hell. But no matter how famous he becomes, he can't shake the heartache of his childhood. Only Sophie can take the edge off. 

Sophie falls for Gavin the moment she realizes his swagger is just a front to hide his wounded core. All she wants is to save him from himself. And once she gives him her heart, she never gets it back. 

She makes him feel...seen; he makes her feel needed. It's a desperate kind of love, but it's what works for them. 

Until it doesn't. 

When the tabloids get a hold of Gavin's family secret, the backlash threatens everything he holds dear...including his relationship with Sophie. It doesn't help matters that the band's gorgeous guitarist is ready to step in and be what Sophie needs. 

With their life together burning out, Gavin and Sophie must decide if their white-hot connection can be reignited....or if it will consume them. 

Irish narrator Lee Brophy does an amazing job bringing this story to life. Playing at Love, the second book in the series, is now available!

Impatiently waiting for the conclusion 👏

I couldn't wait to devour this book and dreaded to pause when my life interfered. I found myself hanging on every savory morsel of a word. The passion, drama, angst, and a wonderfully well developed cast of characters was a gem of a find. The factual rock tidbits also added an interesting touch. I've listened to a decent amount of Rockmance and this one is not the typical repetitive norm for the genre. Cosio's talented writing skills have set the bar high for my future R&R book's.

And Lee Brophy's did a phenomenally outstanding job of acting out the characters with depth and emotion. The intimate scenes will leave you swooning thanks to his sexy seductive voice 😉.
All & all I would say this is a 5 star listen. My only complaint... the author did leave me hanging at the end and I'm quite disappointed that book 2 Playing At Love is not available yet. I hate the wait to see what's in store for Sofie, Gavin and Rogue. I was given a free copy of this audio book at my request and have voluntarily decided to leave this review.

Wow this is an amazing book.

Wow. This book is well worth the read but the audio version with Lee Bropy is a very swoon worthy listen.

This story spans many years with many characters but it is easy to follow.

I love these characters and will definitely be continuing with the series.

Get ready to feel!

Rockstar romances can be fun and flirty, your typical singer finds the wallflower. Not the case with this one! Lara Ward Cosio takes you back to high school, when Sophie and Gavin were students, the band just starting out and their love strong. Circumstances as they are, the two are separated and when they are brought back together, life will never be the same. For me when I listen, I get drawn in, living the life of the characters as the story goes on. These two are on an emotional roller coaster, and I took the ride with them. Their love is so strong, it's easy to feel it, their pain so real, it made my heart hurt. From Ireland to California, with the members of the band whom I love, and the lifestyle they all live, I took the journey hoping to get to Gavin and Sophie's happy ending, but there is more in store for this couple, and I can't wait to hear it!

All I can say is WOW to the narration. This is my first book with Lee Brophy and he is amazing. Bringing has an amazing Irish brogue to the band right along with a switch to a female American is simply extraordinary. He is expressive and emotional as he brings the story to life. I will definitely be watching for more from this talented narrator.

So many feels and great narration! 5 Stars.

Wow. This book was such an emotionally charged ride. We get to experience Sophie and Gavin’s relationship journey from teen love affair to full fledge adult relationship and all the highs and lows in between. It was an emotional, difficult, sometimes painful, but ultimately beautiful love. That was my favorite thing about Tangled Up In You: the raw and realness of the story. Yes, it’s a love story, but the pain feels true, the emotions are so real, and the love can be felt a mile away. Sophie and Gavin broke my heart, but Lara Ward Cosio did beautiful work of piecing it back together little by little. The writing is exquisitely honest, the characters well developed, and the story grabs you and doesn’t let go. This story doesn’t have a HEA yet, but I’m beyond anxious to get to the next book and see what’s in store for Gavin and Sophie.

Narration by Lee Brophy was amazing! This was my introduction to his work and I was beyond I’m pressed. His Irish accent was delicious and effortless. His performance as Gavin was everything. He brought the rockstar to life and had me swooning, cheering, crying, and falling for him over and over again. Mr. Brophy managed to give so many characters distinction and made nearly ten hours of audio breeze on by. I’m really, really hoping that he returns to narrate the following book because he did such a phenomenal job. He is Gavin! Plus, I just need more of that incredibly seductive voice in my life. 5 Stars.

An amazing audio

So I've read the book and then I got the chance to listen to the audio. All I can say...the accent...the accent added to the story so much.
This rocker love story, its the raw story of a relationship, the good, the bad and the ugly. Be ready for all the emotions!

Engaging and Heartbreaking Journey - Great Audiobo

What a journey with Sophie and Gavin, and we experience every bump along the road. From young love to more mature experience, there is a lot of leaning for them both to do, but I can't wait to see what the other Rogue books will hold. Their love is tender and supportive, but it can also be enabling. it's 100% and emotionally engaging romance. We get some closure, but I also know that I'll be picking up Connor's book next. I expect his book to focus on him and his lady love, but I'm also ravenous for tidbits of other characters as well. this book has been very well written and we'll narrated, and I highly recommend picking this one up. This is the voluntary review of a copy gifted by the author.

Irish Rockers...Love, Friendship and Disillusionment

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

A story with many deep and unsettled emotions. Pain from the last that results in actions repeated today.
Confusion..lack of self worth all leading to separation.
Not all angst, it be prepared...leaves you with a cliffhanger knowing there is pain and uncertainty....can’t wait for the next book!
The narrator was absolutely perfect!
